For sale 1964 Chevrolet corvette convertible and a 1966 Chevrolet corvette coupe rear clip chassis and lots of parts. The 1964 corvette was my dads it has been sitting for 30 years in a garage. I was just finally able to pull it out. The car is a 1964 rear clip with a 1967 front nose and interior. The motor is 327 from what I remember my dad telling me. The car is locked up from sitting. We had to drag it out. It was sitting on a cement floor so moisture has taken its toll. It needs to be done from top to bottom. The chassis is rusty. I do have a clean title for the car. Also as part of the auction is a 1966 Corvette coupe with a good chassis that has been sitting up off the ground for about 20 to 25 years. There are a lot of parts that is included in the sale. I have coupe doors,convertible doors, rear decklid, window frame, windshield, radiator, door panels, wire harness,door handles and a 1963 hood gauge clusters and dash. I do not have a title for the 66 only a bill of sale. I would like to sell the two as a package deal.

Supercharged, 6.2-liter V8? Check. Seven-speed manual? Check. Obsession with weight? Check.
What did you expect when Chevrolet said it was bringing a new Corvette variant to the 2014 New York Auto Show? Maybe a sticker and trim package, like the C6 Corvette Grand Sport or a tie-in deal like the Black Widow car from Chicago? On the opposite end, maybe there was an even more hardcore Z06 waiting in the wings. Who knew?
We've been on the fence with NASCAR for some time now. On one hand, it's some of the closest racing anywhere in motorsports, with actual passing and door-handle-to-door-handle action as a matter of course. But on the other, it's become template racing - a personality-driven sport more about the drivers than any sort of loyalty to a particular automaker. The Car Of Tomorrow format really rammed that message home, with a racecar's identity coming down to little more than headlamp stickers slapped on the nose. That's not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself, but we've wondered for some time what's in it for the automakers, who pay big money to stay in a series that has had little increasingly little do with street car sales, let alone innovation.
Apparently General Motors was beginning to wonder the same thing. In a new ESPN report, Rick Hendrick, team owner of Hendrick Motorsports, suggests that GM would have seriously considered leaving NASCAR if it wasn't for the move away from the COT to the new Gen 6 racer. According to Hendrick, GM North America boss Mark Reuss spearheaded the charge away from the 2007 COT and toward a racecar with clearer automaker ties - cars like the new Chevrolet SS racer shown above.

Now, if we could just get more rear-wheel drive V8 coupes into showrooms....
UPDATE: The trucks have been revealed. Click here for all of the official details.
As promised, Chevrolet and GMC are offering a live webcast of the world premiere for the all-new 2014 Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500. After being teased with spy shots and blurry images like the one above for ages, now is the time to see the trucks in the metal, for real (well, as 'real' as it gets on a webcast, at any rate).
Shift your eyes down just below to see the reveal as it happens, starting at 9:30 AM EST. We anticipate having loads of images full technical information to share after the webcast, too, so truck aficionados should stay tuned. We'll also be bringing you live images of both trucks too, when we see them on the show floor at next month's Detroit Auto Show.
