We have a 1941 Chevy truck. Think it is a 1/2 ton, not sure. Took a lot of pics, look at them good as they say it all. Was told it sat for 20 years in field from who we bought it from. They drove it there and parked it. We tracked down the last known registered owner as the truck came without a title, but had a newer vin number on door for Oregon. So fortunately found him. 28 years had passed since he owned it. He told us that it was used on his grandfathers farm. Well used with dings and dangs. Said there was a crack on the block. Outside but they sealed it and it kept on running. It ran when he sold it.  Went home and looked at the engine and sure enough we saw where they did the fix. We were told that it was a nearly all original truck. Original engine, transmission, rear end. Missing some things here and there. The truck did not roll (rear end) when we got it. Trani was in neutral.  I recently PB blasted the passenger side rear drum. As I had another car that did the same thing. Checked the easy first. And that was a stuck brake.  Was the same for this truck. Let it sit for a few days after spraying, hooked up a tow rope and pulled it a couple of feet and pop its free. Truck now rolls. The transmission can be moved into gears. The more you move them the easier it gets. The clutch pedal still can be pushed and returns with out binding. Nothing for brake pedal or gas pedal. Just there. The Engine does turn by hand. Well my hand could not fit so used a crow bar. Moved with out problem.  We don't have any keys for it.  It looks like it is still 6 volts. Can see that the push button on the starter looks like it is stuck in engage. Sprayed it with WD-40 but nothing loosened. Not going to mess with it any more than that. Dip stick shows old oil is in it. Radiator looks dry inside. Carburetor looks amazingly clean. That is the most I can say about the engine. Block number is JAA40957I (eye). 

Inside seat is tore up from critters. Springs look good on both pieces though. Glove box door latches and works with the push button and still has the spring for return. Gauge cluster has seen better days. Look at pics. Windshield wiper motors are there and I  think by reading having two was an option. Not possitive. Do NOT know if anything electrical works. Thought about getting it keyed and throwing a battery in there to see. But don't want to fry anything with a 12 volt battery. Don't know enough to try. 
You can see in the pictures there is rust. Metal bed is bolted in over the old wood bed. Can see the old wood from under the truck. Some of it is falling down from under there. Windshield is not cracked and hinges for opening it work. As you can push the lower end of windshield out and it moves. Windshield crank does not move the windshield though. Don't know if it is not connected under there or broken. Passenger door handle does not open door. Just moves. The door catch is there but stuck inside the jam. So that door does not close all the way. Reason for seeing the bungie cord from steering wheel to that door. Drivers door latches and opens just fine. Both doors have lots of rust and rust holes on the bottom of them. Tires will hold air for a good amount of days. But the drivers side will flatten after a while. Surprised they hold air at all. They look pretty tatored. If I can think of anything else, I will update. Ask us questions, we will answer to the best of our knowledge. Look at the pics.

This is being sold as-is without any warranty of any kind. What is described is to our visual limited knowledge as we are not certified mechanics. Just the home mechanic, doing projects we like and have to teach ourselves about. Shipping or picking the truck up is the sole responsibility of the purchaser. Must be paid in full through pay pal within 7 days of auction end before the truck leaves our property, no exceptions. A non-refundable deposit of 500.00 must be paid within 24 hours of auction end. 

Please don't bid if you don't have the funds to cover it, it only makes sense. Thank You and happy bidding!

GM says hybrid Corvette no laughing matter [w/poll]

Fri, 30 Aug 2013 13:30:00 EST

When Mark Reuss was in LA recently, he sat down to have a few words with the scribes at the Los Angeles Times. When the issue of a hybrid Corvette came up, Reuss answered with "Don't laugh." The General Motors president is a complete fan of the possibility, calling it "attractive" and "really fun," believing it would improve GM expertise and that "people would love it."
Naturally, the president being supportive of an idea doesn't give indication that a hybrid Corvette is on the way. However, with supercars like the Porsche 918 Spyder and Ferrari LaFerrari giving hybrid tech a solid, if remote, place in the performance car world, the inexorable trickle-down of technology means we shouldn't be surprised if and when it does happen.
And now that we have that non-negative half-answer to a speculative question, it would be irresponsible for us not to commence rumormilling for the C8 Corvette. Taking Reuss at his word, the C8 will obviously be a hybrid with all-wheel-drive - the left side wheels driven with electric motors, the right side with the mid-mounted, four-cylinder diesel engine. With coefficient of drag of just .16, figure on a 0-to-60 mile-per-hour time of under 2 seconds and an all-electric range of something like 30 miles at top speed. Don't forget, folks, you read it here first.

Chevy SS prototype spotted wearing Pontiac G8 clothes

Tue, 28 Aug 2012 17:14:00 EST


Do not adjust your computer screen, you are not seeing the rebirth of the Pontiac brand. General Motors has chosen to use a G8 to disguise a test mule for the latest prototype of the forthcoming Chevrolet SS. The G8 was closely related to the Holden Commodore and Vauxhall VXR, the platform upon which the new Chevrolet performance model will be based. It should come as little surprise, then, that GM has opted to use the cladding from the former G8.
Thought the front clip of this mule is pure Pontiac, note the vents immediately behind the front wheel. That is a distinctive design hallmark of the Vauxhall VXR. Also note that this vehicle is right-hand drive, as the Holden and its Chevy counterpart will be very closely related. That likely includes potential drivetrains. The spy photos of this mule also reveal very wide rear tires, and rear wheels that do not match the fronts.

GM recalling 118K Colorado, Canyon pickups over missing hood latches

Thu, 20 Dec 2012 11:27:00 EST

General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.
