Ok guys, if you have a wife or girlfriend that will need some convincing now would be the time to break out the candles, nice bottle of wine, soft music and maybe even some chocolate covered strawberries to seal the deal!

 

Up for auction is my Chip Foose inspired 1972 Chevelle convertible that took almost three years to complete and has only been driving less than 2500 miles since completion.

This is not a true ss car. but everything on it looks to be one. all the emblems,dash,grill, bumpers, gauges.

You will love my Baby! I would drive this car anywhere, it has place in every show, usually 1st or 2nd. I am not trading,the only reason it is for sale I am selling to buy our retirement home we are wanting, so some of the toys have to go.

DRIVETRAIN:

New small block 350 4 bolt main ZZ4 crate motor with 355 horsepower, custom drive shaft, holley carb.,Hooker super comp ceramic coated shorty headers, Flowmaster mufflers, full 2 1/2" exhaust with a pre-fabricated X pipe, 12 bolt posi with 3:42 gears (new seals & bearing), 200R4 overdrive transmission, 2200 overdrive transmission, 2200 street stall, four core aluminum radiator, electric cooling fan, trans cooler, K&N air filter, new high torque mini starter, new battery, new alternator, new everything!!!

BRAKES & SUSPENSION:

Quick ratio steering box, rebuilt front end with new ball joints, tie rods and bushings. Hotchkis front & rear sway baars, F-41 style boxed upper and lower control arms, lowering springs, all new front & rear brakes (slotted & cross drilled front rotors, brake master cylinder & booster, brake  lines, rear drums, shoes, hardware and more)

WHEELS & TIRES:

American Racing 17" Torque Thrust II polished wheels front and rear with Goodyear Eagle F1's 245/45/ZR17 in front & 275/40/ZR17 in rear.

BODY & PAINT:

Chip Foose inspired two tone paint job, silver and black with red pin stripping. New cowl hood with SS hood pin kit. The firewall has also been flattened relocating the heater box to the interior of the vehicle. The convertible top, hydraulic lines, motor and real glass have all been replaced. There are some very superficial scratches in the paint just from normal use, but not one single ding or dent.

OPTIONS:

Vintage air conditioning (ICE COLD), tilt steering column, center console with horse shoe shifter, SS Dash with gauges and 5500 redline tach., power disc brakes, power steering, power convertible top, AM/FM cassette player and more.

INTERIOR:

Almost the entire interior has been replaced. New carpet, new sun visors, new door panels, new rear panels, new arm rest pads, new rear view mirror, LEATHER front and rear seats (NOT VINYL) Grant steering wheel, new seatbelts and much more.

Original owners manual-Protecto plate and part of a build sheet.

The Chevelle runs and drives excellent with a very raw crisp sound from the exhaust upon acceleration, but yet very smooth and quite at idle. the Chevelle also turns on a dime with its lowered suspension 2" front and 3" back and heavy duty sway bars. I can go on and on about the car, but you will have to come and experience it yourself.

Look closely at the bottom of this car, the detail, the workmanship! This is not been spray painted for these pictures. Look at the fine detail of the door jams, smooth as new born baby butt.

The bad...light scuffs by the hood pins, but would buff out. The drivers window has real light scuffs, would not show up on pictures. The tach has stopped working, just have not had time to look into that.

The Chevelle will be available for inspection anytime. With so much done to the car I am certain that I have left something out, but I will assure you this car is very high quality driver with less than 2500 miles since it was completed. The Chevelle receives compliments every time she is out on the road or at the local car shows. I have researched the pricing of the 71-72 convertible Chevelles and found they range from about $20k-$40k+, but none that I have seen comes close to this beauty. Imagine finding a solid Chevelle convertible and then building it from the ground up such as this and see what kind of money you will spend. It will be much, much, much higher than my asking price.

I will answer all emails as quickly as possible and post the answers as I go. Make sure to have funds available prior to bidding and I reserve the right to end the auction early due to local listings. I will help you get car transported anyway I can, but all expenses and arrangements are buyers responsibility.

I am located within 15 minutes of downtown St. Louis, MO. I can pick you up from Lambert Airport with prior arrangements.

Don't miss out on this one.

Call me anytime at 618-530-3725

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK!!

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible gives us a couple of looks

Sat, 02 Mar 2013 18:00:00 EST

Put away your pixel paintbrushes, kids. Pack up your Photoshop. This is the real-deal 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible in its first official images. The droptop Chevrolet will roll into the bright lights of the Palexpo exhibition at next week's Geneva Motor Show, a four-wheeled statement of intent that General Motors is serious about taking its Corvette franchise global.
Chevy isn't providing anything in the way of further details with these two shots, but we've learned at least a couple of things about the car shown here. First off, the example seen in these images is fitted with the optional Z51 Performance Package - something that isn't immediately evident because there's no sign of the coupe model's prominent ductwork on its rear haunches. In order to accommodate the power folding hard tonneau cover, the vents that feed the transmission and differential coolers have been relocated to the underside of the car. The dark paint color on this example also does a good job of muting the contrasting black front fender vents and hood opening - Z51-spec design details that have proven to be somewhat controversial.
One other thing to note: These two shots also display the Stingray wearing different alloy wheels than the split five-spoke design shown at the hardtop's Detroit Auto Show unveiling in January. The simpler, thin five-spoke wheels should do a good job of showing off the Z51's upgraded brakes, and they'll be optional on the coupe as well.

GM dealers unhappy about pickup prices

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 17:44:00 EST

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.

Next Corvette ZR1 to get 700 horsepower?

Tue, 19 Feb 2013 18:30:00 EST

Word has it General Motors may offer as much as 700 horsepower in the C7 Corvette ZR1. Motor Trend reports the next Corvette Z06 will continue to rely on its naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 engine for thrust, but the lump will deliver substantially more power. How much more? MT says the engine could deliver up to 600 ponies. That's a jump of 95 horsepower over the current Z06, though no figures have been finalized as of yet. Right now, GM is reportedly waiting to see what sort of grunt it can glean from the next ZR1.
The automaker has already made it clear it will resurrect the LT5 name for the new supercharged V8, and if GM is already pulling 600 from the Z06, the big dog ZR1 would theoretically offer 700 horsepower. Either way, the range-topping Corvette will be suitably insulated from its less potent siblings. Stay tuned. We aren't likely to see the Z06 for at least a year, with the ZR1 trailing along at some point there after.
