"I had been trying to sell my classic car through “Trademe” for months with no success. A couple of people had mentioned Jesmond so in desperation I contacted him. He very promptly arranged to inspect the car and having already done his homework gave me an idea of what he could sell the car for and confirmed it in writing a day later. The “on behalf” deal was written up and I knew what was happening at all times with constant correspondence. The car sold in a couple of weeks and everything was taken care of by Jesmond. I am very happy with the result and felt I could trust him from the moment I met him. He's too trust-worthy to be a car dealer. He's more a car lover who helps others move on from their indulgences."Brian Campbell, Rangiora, North Canterbury, New Zealand
The big block V8 engines produced by General Motors in the 1960s and '70s are the stuff of legend among muscle car enthusiasts. This was the family of motors that gave us the famous 396 cubic inch eight-cylinder big blocks along with the 427.
In 1970 the largest Mark IV motor arrived on the scene. Displacing 454 cubic inches it was first offered in the Chevrolet Corvette, producing up to 450 horsepower in ultra-rare LS6 specification. This motor would eventually find its way into the Monte Carlo and Chevelle coupes, as well as the El Camino and the Caprice.
In 1973, with the 454 having left the high performance world and migrated over to sedans, personal luxury coupes, and 'utes, GM decided to also add it to the pickup truck order sheet at Chevrolet and GMC. This coincided with the square body style and new platform for each brand's pickups, which would run from 1973 all the way to 1991.
