Up for sale is a 95 Chevy 3500 HD flatbed tow truck with the 454 motor. It has a Holmes aluminum bed with the tow bar in the rear for towing an extra vehicle behind the truck. The bed measures from front to back at 19ft. All the lighting on the bed was recently redone and has all new lights and light covers as you can see in the pictures. In this auction will also be included an orange and white Whelen light bar for overhead rotating and strobe lighting. its not pictured on the truck.
It has a strong 454 motor that was rebuilt about a year ago. The transmission on it went out two months ago and it was replaced and the transmission guy added stronger parts and said that this transmission upgrade would make this thing bulletproof and it was ideal for all the power the truck has to exert while towing. It cost me quite a bit more than a regular tranny and it really does tow tons better now. I just put a brand new fuel pump in and the filters were replaced as well. O2 sensors and exhaust were recently replaced as well.
The bed is fully operational and so is the lift. It runs smooth and I have never had a problem with it. I have not had the time to add a master control for all the lights after I started the upgrade on them all. It will need one or you can rig up switches as you please. I also tore out the old throttle lock cable and have not put in a new one yet. Its only 30 for the cable and literally takes 30 minutes to install. It does not affect the functionality of the bed but the high idol allows the bed to move faster as it increases the engines RPM's and pushes the PTO to move faster. The belt on the PTO was just changed. It is coming time to take some preventative maintenance steps and have the PTO serviced and maybe have it rebuilt. I have done this with all my trucks diligently every two years to keep them in top form.This one is about due.
The interior is in good shape with normal wear and tear. My trucks have always been well maintained and serviced. The body of the truck is also in good shape as you can see and the paint job is new as well. It does have AC and it does work but if you know Chevys then you know that between the years of 95 to 01 the switches for the vents that Chevy used on their trucks always had problems. you turn the switch and sometimes you will get air cold enough to blast you out of the truck, other times not so much. That would be the one complaint I have that I never got around to fixing.
It's a good truck and I hate to see it go but I have to make room for new ones. Good luck. You must have feedback to be able to participate in this bid and if you don't plan on buying, then don't place a bid. I have had to re-list too many items previously because people don't want to pay. I reserve the right to end auction early as it is for sale locally as well.

How would you react if someone just showed up at your place of work with a new, 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, complete with all the trimmings? While a lot of us would likely be flipping out over the still rare sports car, it's a fair bet many more of us would be responding like Pattie here, whose boyfriend stopped by her work to show her her new C7.

Speechless and shocked as she seems, she does end up taking it out for a drive, despite claiming she wasn't really outfitted to handle the car's seven-speed manual transmission at the time. From the sound of the video, we got the impression that she knew the car was coming, just not that it was anywhere near ready for delivery. It also, as Pattie says, seems like her boyfriend is more excited about the car than she (which, can we blame him?). Take a look down below for the full video of this C7 Stingray delivery.
We've talked about Pure Vision Design before, a California-based company that made waves at last year's SEMA show with its Martini-liveried, Indy-car-powered Ford Mustang. That same car later starred in a Petrolicious video we showed you just a few weeks back. The company's latest creation is a menacing car it calls the Pure Vision Design TT Camaro. Based on a 1972 model, this car shares the Martini Mustang's clean styling and obsession with details.

Unlike the Mustang, which draws its power from a mid-60s Lotus-Ford Indycar engine, the "TT" in this Camaro's name implies something far more potent. The Nelson Racing Engines 427-cubic-inch V8 has been fitted with a pair of turbochargers, with a claimed output of 1,400 horsepower. That's almost 1,000 more than the Martini Mustang.
A six-speed Magnum transmission dispatches that power to the ground, while Pirelli PZero tires are tasked with (somehow) trying to grip the road. Baer brakes hide behind those HRE rims, while JRI coilovers and HyperTech springs bless the Camaro with some degree of competency in the bends.

There once was a time when Daewoo was one of the biggest companies in South Korea. It was larger than both LG and Samsung, and second only to Hyundai. But these days the name is all but gone.
