Up for sale is a 72 SS Chevelle with a date correct 402 big block with a muncie 4 speed, 3:31 posi rear and f41 suspension. This car brought to us from an elderly lady. Her husband owed the the car for the last 16 years which is noted on the title. He pasted away 12 years ago and its been sitting in her garage since. When we went to pick up the car. It started right up. I drove the car 60 miles to my shop at 65 mph with no issues what ever. I then put on the lift and inspected the under carriage. There is no rust in floor boards, trunk or frame at all. Then we went to interior tach, speedo work correct clock is not. Fasten seat belt light works great and still has the am/fm 8 track still installed.There is some small cracks in the driver and passenger front seats, rear is perfect. Needs dome light and sail panel material tightened up. No cracks in the dash pad. The 4 speed console is in the trunk not sure why its not installed its all in tact.We then went to the drive train hoping we had a numbers matching car. After running the stamp codes on the front on the block it came back as a 1972 402 LS3 from and automatic Chevelle.We decoded the trans and rear and they are also date correct.We then went to exterior body one rust spot on the right lower front fender and front of the hood that was it. It has dings and scratches I would guess from sitting in the garage because I had to help get boxes and sports equipment from around the car to get it out. I specialize in frame off restorations on Camaro's and Chevelle's. if would like us to do work for you. If the car doesn't sell we will start the frame off in April. Before the end of the listing we will do an oil change, tune up, install the rear valance, console and correct chrome tips on the exhaust. Car needs paint, carpeting (fading), seat cover 2 front seats, dome light to be a very nice 72 SS Big Block.
Thsi car can be driven anywhere. I can be contacted on my cell at 321-695-3740 PLEASE TEXT FIRST I dont answer calls I don't recognize because of the number of calls I get in a day. Thanks and good luck. Bill Howell
For a concept car built to promote an animated movie about a snail that wants to go racing, this thing ain't half bad. The outsized monster you see before you started life as a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and then went through a big-time Hollywood makeover before being positioned on the Chevrolet stand here in Chicago.
This 2013 "Turbo" Camaro Coupe is getting the promotion machine ratcheted up for a new DreamWorks tale by the name of, you guessed it, Turbo. Coming this summer, the movie will follow one snail's quest to become a race driver worthy of making the cut at the Indy 500. Like many DreamWorks vehicles before it, we're guessing that the petrolhead snail will star in a movie that adults (especially racing fans) with have no trouble watching with their kids. Check out the trailer below to see if you agree.
As for the car, we're told that it is "instrumental" in transforming Turbo from snail into racer. Helping the beastly pony car in this mighty task, is an ankle-cracking front splitter matched by a ungodly huge rear wing out back, a COPO hood and a supercharged (yes, supercharged) V8 engine making more than 700 horsepower. 24-inch wheels all the way around - 10-inches wide in front and 15-inches wide in back - should allow the "Turbo" Camaro to hook up with ease, as well.
That was fast. Mere days after showing a Police Concept based on the 2015 Tahoe at the SEMA Show, Chevrolet has announced that it will build a PPV model based on the SUV to do battle with the Ford Police Interceptor Utility (Explorer) and Dodge Durango Special Service.
You'll recall that the Tahoe has been police staple for several years, predating both the Explorer and Durango police variants, so the fact that the new model would spawn a police variant is hardly surprising. Like the civilian model, the 2015 PPV benefits from a more efficient 5.3-liter, direct-injection V8 that pumps out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. It also features more high-strength steel, offering better crash protection, on top of optional safety items like lane departure warning, forward collision alert and a Safety Alert Seat.
The press release is rather light on police-specific items, aside from the auxiliary battery, which keeps the myriad of electronics in a modern police car running even when the engine isn't. Lightbars, 17-inch steel wheels on Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires and a push bar round out the mods for the Tahoe PPV. The cabin features a revised center console and room for laptop and other equipment mounts.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for a number of General Motors cars and crossovers bought or currently registered in the hot-climate states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas. As many as 40,859 units consisting of the 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and Saturn Ion and the 2007-2009 Chevrolet Cobalt (shown) and its Pontiac G5 twin are being recalled for potential fuel leaks.
This recall is being issued due to potentially faulty fuel pump components that can crack and cause gasoline to leak from the return or supply ports and possibly cause a fire. NHTSA has not indicated how many fuel leaks or vehicle fires have been reported. As a fix, GM will replace the fuel pump modules on all affected vehicles free of charge. Since Pontiac and Saturn have been shuttered, owners will be able to go to another GM-brand dealership to have their vehicles repaired.
While the list of affected cars and crossovers varies by state and model year, if you own any of these models and live in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma or Texas, be sure to check the official notice below for more details.
