Up for auction is a 1955 Chevy pickup. She isn't the prettiest thing on the block, but here she is! Looks like an amateur restoration in progress. This is a project that needs work. Truck had some rust in the typical areas and was somewhat repaired. From what I can tell, the cab was sandblasted and metal work has been done. I cant say how much or how well it was done, but I can see some new metal and welds from underneath. Looks to be a solid project truck. I did some small stuff to the truck, and reprimered it. The windows are blacked out and all need to be replaced. They were all cracked and partially sandblasted. There is a piece of metal welded in the inner upper windshield area and it looks like the typical outer section may need some attention before installing new glass. Its not as bad as some of the ones ive seen. The engine is a six cylinder that fires right up. I have it hooked to a small gas can. The tank needs to be flushed. I drove it a little, but there are no brakes and someone put a floor shifter in that is a pain to use. Truck has 4 17 inch wheels with decent tires. The bed is a floor is a piece of plywood and the inner bed and floors are done with a sprayed in bedliner. If the truck needs to be shipped, I will get one of the brakes working for loading and unloading on a transporter. Any questions or if you need more pics, call me at 570-299-1755. This truck is not one of the typical high quality trucks that I usually sell, therefore it is offered with no reserve and sold "as is" with no warranty of any kind. Feel free to shoot me an offer. I will add a few more pics as soon as I can. I have a clear Missouri title in hand for the truck. Good Luck!!!!
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette really grinds Peter De Lorenzo's gears. Or, more accurately, the self-anointed Auto Extremist has an issue with what he sees as mismanagement of the legendary sports car by General Motors executives. In a new editorial on his website, De Lorenzo argues it's time to split Corvette off from Chevrolet to create an all-new brand, complete with a model range with at least three new takes on the sports car. Capable of fully leveraging the successes of the Corvette Racing program and brandishing the full might of GM's technical prowess, the Corvette brand would theoretically give Porsche something to sweat over.
Sure, that sounds like a party, but given GM's troubled track record when it comes to launching (let alone managing) brands, we say that's slippery slope that could just as easily end with the whole Corvette franchise in the scrap bin. Either way, the notion is certainly an interesting one. Head over to Auto Extremist to take in the full editorial, and then let us know what you think in Comments. Should GM split off its most storied nameplate?
Chevrolet showed off the new 2014 SS in an airport hangar last night, its first rear-wheel-drive performance sedan in the US since the Impala SS from 1997. We'll have more to say about the SS later today, but this is the sedan that Chevrolet sees as the final piece in restoring its performance credentials. For those of you looking for a manual transmission, however, that wish will go unfulfilled - at least for now: the only two options buyers will have are the color and whether or not they want a sunroof.
We'll work on getting some more angles (in better light) today at Daytona International Speedway, but with fans seeing the car for the first time, we don't hold out much luck of getting a clear shot. So for now, enjoy the high-res gallery above.
It's been a good week for heavy-duty truck buyers. First, Ram revealed the Black Package for its HD trucks, then it rolled out its new Power Wagon, and now Chevy's getting in on the action with its Silverado High Country HD. Okay, so it may not pack quite the attitude of Ram's latest 2500-series offerings, but the High Country HD will come as a welcome addition to the Chevy Trucks range to those looking to pull their horse, boat or other trailer without skimping on creature comforts.
Rolled out a little under a year ago, the High Country trim is Chevy's answer to the likes of the GMC Denali, Ford King Ranch and Ram Longhorn. It has until now only been offered on the light duty, 1500-series Silverado, but now extends to the 2500 and 3500-series HD models, as well.
So what sets a High Country pickup apart from lesser Chevy trucks? You'll be able to pick it out based on its chrome horizontal grille, body-color bumpers, 6-inch tubular side steps, 20-inch chrome wheels (18-inch on the 3500 and 17-inch on the dualie) and, of course, plenty of special badging. But it's inside where the High Country makes its mark, with a cabin decked out in saddle brown perforated leather, seats that are both heated and cooled, eight-inch touchscreen with full MyLink suite, Bose audio and park assist functions front and rear to keep those color-keyed bumpers looking fresh. (Though Chevy hasn't yet showed us the interior of the HD model, it'll presumably look mostly the same as the cab in the 1500 High Country in the gallery below.)
