85 Chevy 1/2 Ton 4x4 On 1 Ton Chassis. Fresh 454, Trans, Transfer Case And Diffs on 2040cars
Saint Clair Shores, Michigan, United States
|Hi everyone, I'm selling my 85 chevy "1/2" ton 4x4. It currently sits on a 1 ton suspension with 8+ inches of lift. The engine is a fresh 454 big block with a performance RV cam, Edelbrock intake and Edelbrock 750 cfm carb. Blaster coil. Roller rockers! All the good stuff pushing around 450hp.Trans is a freshly rebuilt automatic with 2200 RPM stall. Transfer case was rebuilt at the same time. Rancho shocks all the way around. 14 bolt detroit locker rearend with fresh 4:56 gears. Front diff just had new seals and fresh 4:56 gears installed also. Hedman headers into dual exhaust. Runs strong! With the 37x12.5x15 Super Swampers, she'll climb up and through nearly anything you throw at her. B&M floor shifter gets that annoying lever out of your way while heading of road. Though it has been off road it has never ben beat on! Brakes are good all around!
The body is very solid for a 28 year old truck...but it does have a couple of areas that rust have set in. I will include pictures of these areas. Rockers are solid! Just the very end of both doors and right behind the rear tires...but nothing beyond repair. Truck still presents very well. I would recommend different tires if you plan to drive this truck on the highway.
Interior has 2 racing bucket seats with 5 point harnesses. Full gauge cluster and tach. Awesome running truck. Heater has been deleted...but I have everything to install heater back in place.
As much as I hate to part with it...the wife needs a new car since the arrival of our grandson. If you have any questions please feel free to ask and I'll answer them as quickly as possible.
I will not deliver...local pick up only. However...I will work with any shipper you arrange.
No warranty offered or implied
Good luck and happy bidding everyone.
Would entertain trade or partial trade for nice Jeep Wrangler...extended cab diesel 4x4...or nice nova.

Living in an apartment complex has its benefits, but for shade-tree mechanics who like/need to work on their own cars, it definitely has a number of disadvantages. Relatively simple tasks such as brake jobs and oil changes are difficult when you don't have dedicated driveway space, to say nothing of more in-depth repairs... like pulling an engine, for example.

For these types of challenges, a little ingenuity and plenty of muscle are needed to get the job done. Scroll down to watch these four men snatch the V8 out of a Chevrolet K1500 using nothing but a chain, landscape timber and good ol' fashioned brute strength. Good work, gentlemen.
Edmunds has worked up a piece that tries to figure out just how much the global Chevrolet Corvette economy is worth, a spitballed guesstimate putting the number at more than $2.5 billion with the proviso that the number is probably low. It starts by taking Corvette's new car sales of 14,132 units last year, which would equate to $714,725,900 (including destination) assuming ever car sold was a base coupe with no options. In the final tally, a little extra padding gets that number up to $750,000,000.

But that's not all. Consider this: Many of the almost 1.4 million Corvettes produced over the model's history are still on the road. There are new parts being produced and aftermarket companies like Mid-America Motorworks deaing business, that single Illinois company doing more than $40 million a year in sales. There are the Corvette events large and small, restorers who do nothing but Corvettes, salvage yards that deal only in used Corvette parts and the Corvette magazines where owners find all this stuff.
And then there are the Corvette-themed tchotchkes, every single one of which provides a tiny contribution to the huge licensing royalties that General Motors collects every year. The article admits there's no way to come to an accurate number, but it just goes to show how valuable one specific model can be to a company.
The backlash is beginning. Following General Motors' price hike of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra last week, dealers across the country are expressing their ire over increasing prices in the face of rebates and discounts on trucks from Ford and Ram.
Speaking to Automotive News, Sam Pilato, the general manager at Dimmitt Chevrolet in Clearwater, FL, Silverados are "selling very poorly." W. Carrol Smith, the president of Monument Chevrolet in the heart of truck country, Texas, said, "[GM's] position is that the vehicle stands on its own and it doesn't need a bigger rebate. That's not what the market is telling us."
According to AN, that's the general attitude amongst Chevy and GMC dealers across the country, where the twin pickups are getting butchered in sales by competitors offering up to $9,000 off their sticker prices. Part of the problem for GM is that its trucks are arriving on the market near the end of the current F-150's lifecycle, a fact that Ford has taken advantage of.
