Are you a classic Chevy fan? Will you be in Florida April 6-8 or comfortable bidding live on-line? Then check these three beauties out.

 

1) 1967 Corvette 427/400 horsepower convertible (Lot #717) that is one of 16 painted in Greenwood Green over black vinyl interior (Top of Page Image). This is a numbers-matching car that has had a frame-off restoration (or two). Power everything, automatic.

2) 1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro (Lot #709) with an L72 V8 engine (425 hp) and a 4-speed manual. This Camaro has been fully restored, has a numbers-matching engine and correct date-coded drivetrain.

3) 1960 Chevrolet El Camino Pickup (Lot #700). GM ZZ 502ci engine with a Ram Jet fuel-injection system coupled to a Richmond 6-speed transmission. Mist Opal Green Metallic and Desert Silver Metallic paint. Interesting finishes include Mercedes-Benz bucket seats and a suede headliner.

 

Which is your favorite? The "Vette would be this fan's pick. If you are interested in learning more check out Barrett-Jackson website.

Most of those types of auctions only interest the more dollars than sense crowd. I only buy stuff I can actually use and I'm not trying to impress anyone.

      Heya folks,
      I have come across a 1993 chevy silverado 3500 with a swapped engine (502) I have little to no experience with cars. I've been looking at it with a mechanic who is considerably more experienced having worked on Cummins Diesels for a transport company. He's working on a truck of his own. I was trying to help him out by figuring out the firing order we've tried various ones, It doesn't appear to be misfiring but I have little experience with v8's so i'm not sure what a 502 or a 454 should sound like firing order-wise. I'd happily post a recording. Truck also has injection issues which means it needs a bit of help every time to start. It's also currently stuck in limp-mode as it will not exceed 1800rpm's. The computer has been 'tampered' with, presumably when the block was changed. It's currently with another mechanic who has a diagnostic system. 
      Basically, I was hoping someone could post the firing order of a 502 and I could check when I get her back from the mechanic.
      Thank you all in advance

      Thanks to a tip by a forum member, we now know exactly when we can start ordering a new 2019 Silverado or Sierra. Or at least, when dealers can start to submit orders.
       
      So when can your local Chevy or GMC dealer get your 2019 order processed? The answer isn't one date... it's a couple. And it depends on if you want a Crew Cab or a Double Cab. 
       
      If you want a Crew Cab
      You're in luck. These are being ordered and produced first. Fleet orders start in a few days on April 26th. Retail orders through the Dealer Order Submission Process or DOSP start May 17th. Production is still undetermined with Quarter 3 (July/August/September) being listed for when the first saleable trucks will roll off the line. 
       
      If you want a Double Cab
      You're going to have to wait a few more months. Fleet orders start June 21st. The initial DOSP will begin August 16th and production is estimated in Quarter 4 (October/November/December). 
       
      If you want a Regular Cab
      You're really out of luck. All regular cab ordering and production is TBD. At this rate, don't expect any regular cab ordering or delivery at least until late late 2018 or early 2019. 
       
      Stay Up To Date!

      Chevrolet is hitting hard and hitting fast when it comes to releasing their new generation of pickups. First came the 2019 1500 in December, by surprise. Then came the 4500/5500/6500HD chassis cab trucks (not by surprise) last month.
       
      Now Chevrolet is surprising us once again with an extremely revealing photo of the next generation Silverado 3500HD.  Seen above, the picture of the next gen 2020 HD shows off part of the front grille, hood, mirrors, and headlights.
       
      What can we tell? Well, a few things. 
      The front grill will have a bowtie less option OR the bowtie is lower in the grille (aka 2019 Camaro) The front turn signals/drl laps will be LED.  The headlights will be located BELOW the chrome crossbar A tasteful hood scoop remains All new towing mirrors are on the way Marker lights are also most likely LED.   
      What do you think?

      Hello, 
      Tonight on my way home I had the 4wd light flash periodically in my 2wd 99 Chevy Silverado 1500. I am totally clueless as to why this would happen as I figured that it would be disabled since I don't have a transfer case. Any ideas or suggestions?? 
      Thanks
