It is totally original except for noted recent work done. Truck was owned since new June '58 by a Kansas farmer. It was used on the farm and trips to town only until 1984 when they bought a new Chevy truck, it was then parked in the barn and still has the 1984 Kansas farm tags on it! We have the original title. She is a 3600 heavy duty stepside long bed. At some point the 17" split rims were replaced with 19.5" tubeless tires. The light blue paint is original, with light surface rust, and 2 rust areas behind front wheel wells. The patina is awesome. This truck also has the original interior, rubber floor mats, 235 6cyl "thrift master" engine, 4 speed transmission, spare tire, wood bed, optional wood side rail extensions, and the original owners manual in the glove box.

My son and I bought this truck at the farm auction in the barn where it sat 39 years. We transported it by trailer to our mechanic who specializes in old Chevys. We love this truck, but he is expecting a baby and I have too many other projects now, so she goes up for auction: Odometer shows 12,489 miles, actual could be 112,489, but this farmer did not drive except to town maybe once a week at most, a 20 mile trip.

General Motors is recalling some 426,240 sedans that may have a faulty transmission shift cable, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report this morning. The recall concerns a fault within four-speed automatic transmissions equipped on 2007-2010 Saturn Aura models, and 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 models.

The report specifies that tabs on the transmission shift cable may fracture and separate. Such a fault could cause a discrepancy between the actual position of the transmission and the apparent position of the shift lever.
GM is currently working to notify owners of the vehicles in question, and dealers will check and replace shift cables free of charge. Scroll down to read the complete NHTSA report.
The formula of Top Gear Korea is seemingly about the same as it is everywhere else in the world, including the flagship British original: involve interesting cars in fantastical situations with charismatic hosts. That prescription has proved to be pretty reliable over the years, and has lead to some truly memorable and exciting pieces of television.

Something like that was undoubtedly what the Korean producers were after when they lined up this segment - a drag race between a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and an AH1 Cobra military helicopter. The planners almost certainly did not expect the filming of the segment to go quite as wrong as it actually did, with the helicopter actually crashing into the dirt after the "drag race" had been completed. Thankfully, we're told that no one was seriously injured in the crash, but the footage, in the video below, is pretty damn chilling to watch, nevertheless.
We showed you Chevrolet's major debut yesterday, the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible, but General Motors is making a big push for Bowtie consideration in Europe, so it's also introducing the updated Captiva crossover here at the Geneva Motor Show.
While still based on the same platform as North America's fleet-only Captiva Sport (which is effectively a rebadged Saturn Vue), the Captiva is available in both five- and seven-seat iterations, and it looks far more modern. That's particularly the case with this updated model, which features revamped front- and rear ends that include restyled bumpers, grilles and LED taillamps, among other changes.
As before, the midsize Theta-platform CUV will be available in both front- and all-wheel drive, and is expected to carry a range of four- and six-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines. Important US programming note: Chevrolet sources tell us that America's Captiva Sport will not receive these updates.
