Here is a 1954 Chevy pick up with a four speed hydramatic transmission, a VERY RARE OPTION. It has an original 235 six cylinder solid lifter, full pressure oil system  engine. It has been completely rebuilt with Chevy 350 ex. valves and hard seats installed for unleaded gas. It has the RARE 15 inch wheels with 5 new P235 75 R15 tires. It has been converted to 12 volt with a GM alternator. It has Fenton dual exhaust manifolds with a custom two into one stainless muffler and sounds great.The gas tank has been changed to under the bed with a flush mounted cap in the bed. The bed and tail gate are in near perfect condition. The cab and fenders have had body work done that was done to nice DRIVER quality. The paint job is nice driver quality. The bed wood is solid.It has a new aluminum radiator and never over heats. It has been completely rewired and all the lights work.The distributor has been upgraded with a pertronix electronic unit. It starts up fast and every time even when it is cold. The temp gauge and oil gauge work but don't read correctly. I installed a manual gauge to show the accurate oil pressure. SEE PICTURES.  The gas gauge has been replaced with one that is compatable with the new tank.The interior is clean and nice. ALL the glass has been replaced.

The truck drives and steers great for an old truck. The brakes were redone and work fine.
The hood is another story. At some time someone has welded the seam to make it a one piece hood. It was not done properly and is warped and does not fit well. A nice used hood is included that will need finish body work and paint. The hood now latches fine and does not't affect the driving. It just looks bad.
I have tried to describe the truck as accurately as I can. If you have any questions please ask and I will do my best to answer


On Jul-11-13 at 17:47:19 PDT, seller added the following information:

The transmission shifts hard going into third gear. I have been told that it can be adjusted and is common. The transmission does NOT slip.

There is a small dent in the right rear fender. My fault, backing out of my garage. It is minor and dosen't even show in the pictures.
Most of the work was done by a previous owner and I am repeating what was told to me. The previous owner built the truck for his daughter to drive to high school. The truck was rebuilt here in Payson AZ.


On Jul-11-13 at 18:03:30 PDT, seller added the following information:

The truck is being sold at auction as is where is. The sale is final so be sure it is what you want before you bid. There is no warranty of any kind on any part of the truck. I will not handle shipping on  the truck. This is up to you or pick it up yourself.

Under NO condition will the truck leave until it is paid in full. NO ACCEPTIONS. If you want to test drive it, and I suggest you do, send me a message with your phone # and we can set up a time for that.



On Jul-11-13 at 18:21:37 PDT, seller added the following information:

I installed a Carter YF carburetor in place of the old Rochester. It has more power and responds better but it runs a little rich. This is probably do to the 5000 foot altitude here. It may be just fine at your altitude so I did not try to change it.

Why Cadillac thinks it needs to succeed in Europe to sell cars elsewhere

Tue, 26 Feb 2013 10:59:00 EST

Ward's Auto has taken an interesting look at the renewed focus General Motors is showing towards Cadillac in Europe. Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac in Europe (pictured), says in order for the luxury brand to thrive in China, it first needs to succeed in the old country. The reason? Chinese buyers look to Europe for cues as to what's deemed worthy of the term "luxury." There are hurdles to the plan, however. In addition to the fact that the EU is flooded with high-end nameplates, GM doesn't necessarily have the distribution network in place to put buyers behind the wheel.
Combine that with persistent economic woes and Cadillac's checkered past marred by a lack of diesel engine options and a bankrupt distributor, and the road ahead for the brand looks like less of an uphill climb and more like a straight-up cliff face. But Docherty is optimistic and says she has a plan for the brand. We recommend heading over to Ward's for a closer look at the full read.

Steve McQueen's last movie car, now Pawn Stars-owned, up for auction [w/video]

Sun, 03 Feb 2013 17:03:00 EST

The last car Steve McQueen ever drove in a movie is officially up for auction. The 1951 Chevrolet Styline DeLuxe Convertible you see above is now owned by none other than Rick Harrison of Pawn Stars fame, but once ferried McQueen around the set of his last film, 1980's The Hunter. That flick saw the Bullit star play a bumbling bounty hunter and didn't exactly set the box office on fire. McQueen bought the car after production wrapped, and four years later it sold at his estate sale at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas.
Flash forward to 2003, and the convertible received a full restoration back to near-stock specifications. Hagerty Insurance estimates the car to be worth around $45,000 without the significant providence. Given its ties to one of film's most popular gearheads, the old Chevrolet could fetch up to 10 times that when it goes under the gavel in Ft Luaderdale, Florida on March 22. You can head over to the Auctions America site for more information. You can also check out the trailer for The Hunter below.

GM won't sell 2014 Chevrolet SS in Canada

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 11:01:00 EST

Allow us to be the first to extend our condolences to our friends to the north. General Motors has announced the 2014 Chevrolet SS will not be available in Canada. The Globe and Mail reports the automaker has confirmed the high-performance sedan won't hit Canadian dealers, though GM hasn't offered up any reasoning as to why that is.
Buyers here in the US of A, meanwhile, can look forward to getting their hands on the 415-horspower, rear-wheel drive SS by late summer. Something tells us it won't be long after that before Canadian officials start seeing individually imported 6.2-liter V8 four-doors in their neighborhoods. Fortunately, Canadian buyers will still be able to take home the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette. The C7 bowed at the Canadian International Auto Show last week, reportedly drawing sizable crowds and interest.
