1985 Ford Mustang Lx Convertible 2-door 3.8l on 2040-cars
Marina, California, United States
For sale is my 1985 Mustang convertible with 158,000 miles. It has the 3.8L V6 that runs great with no problems. The automatic transmission shifts great. Overall the car runs great. Passed smog a few months ago with no problems. I put a brand new black convertible top on it with a glass window, the power top does not work, you have to put it down manually. The body is very straight and has very little rust on the bottom of the doors. Paint is original. It does need paint, the clear coat is coming off on the whole car. The interior is in great condition for its age, there are no rips in the vinyl seats. The carpet is in pretty good condition but will need a good shampoo to make it look really nice. The dash will need replacing due to cracks and the speaker grilles are completely gone. The car does need a new computer, currently the fuel pump relay is bypassed due to the computer fail. The car still runs and drives but will need a new computer at some point. I bought one off of eBay for $30 and it was the wrong one, new a computer is $170 but they are all over used for under $50 or you can get it rebuilt from what I was told. This car would make a good 5.0 conversion and or a good daily driver that's not to bad on gas. The car is currently on a non-op. I have the clean and clear CA title in my name. Please ask any questions you might have before bidding, 831-917-8215. Car is being sold as-is with NO warranty.

We may regard Ford as an American automaker, but ask a Brit and they may tell you otherwise. The Blue Oval has, after all, been selling cars in the UK since 1903, and started manufacturing there as far back as 1911 when it began local production of the Model T in Manchester. Last year Ford ended 100 years of vehicle manufacturing in the UK when the last Transit van rolled off the assembly line in Southampton, but it's still the biggest-selling automotive marque in Britain.

Ford has led the British market for 34 out of the past 45 years, selling more Fiestas than any other company sells any other car in the UK since 2009... when it overtook the Focus. In fact the Fiesta has now become the best-selling car in British history, topping 4,115,000 units since its introduction in 1976. The previous record was held by - you guessed it - another Ford: the Escort sold 4,105,961 units over the course of its 32 years on the British market.
Although the Fiesta is no longer manufactured in the UK (previous versions having been built at Dagenham until 2002), engines are: the EcoBoost line was developed at the company's R&D center in Essex and are built at the factory in Dunton, while its diesel engines were developed at Dagenham in East London. Even the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine in the Fiesta ST is built in South Wales.
Back in October, there were reports that General Motors and Ford Motor Company were hard at work co-developing new nine- and ten-speed automatic transmissions, and now both automakers have confirmed this joint operation. While there are no specific vehicles mentioned to receive either transmission, a collaborative press release issued by GM and Ford mention that the transmission will be designed for front- and rear-wheel-drive cars, crossovers, trucks and SUVs.

These aren't the first powertrain components developed jointly between these cross-town rivals, either. The six-speed automatic currently used in vehicles like the Ford Edge, Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Cruze and Chevrolet Equinox was engineered in a similar fashion. As is the case with this existing transmission, both automakers will assist in the design, development and testing of the new transmissions, but each will build its own units in its own factories. Scroll down for the official press release.
Remember when we used to talk about how close Lincoln was to being axed and how it seemed any day now the Grim Reaper would use it as a car service back to the grave? Last time we did it was, oh, not even a month ago. What a difference 27 days makes: Ford and Lincoln are trumpeting a $129M investment in the Louisville Assembly Plant that builds the MKC.
In July the MKC was the third-best-selling Lincoln of the brand's six offerings, beat by the MKZ and - by a much smaller margin - the MKX. It has sold 2,895 units in the two months it's been on sale, which is more than half the year-to-date sales of the MKS, MKT and Navigator. It's already important, is what we're trying to say, and this is before the Chinese market gets a crack at it later this year.
The money headed to Kentucky will be joined by 300 new workers, another marker in Ford's march to create 12,000 hourly jobs in the US by next year. You can read more about it in the press release below.
