Clean '78 bronco xlt. Bought for hunting truck but it's too nice to tear up. I'm the 3rd owner and have known this truck since it was new. Have all the original paperwork and manuals. Was owned by a local farmer and was driven sparingly by his wife and daughters then stored in the early 90's until it was bought by my buddy in 2011. He never drove it and i bought it from him in 2012. Was started and drove around the barnyard a couple times a year to keep it in shape. Has only 82k original miles! Seats are in great shape, didn't want to remove covers for pics. Driver seat has one small wear spot on vinyal portion. Rear seat is black and in perfect condition, i belive it was added in later years. No cracks in dash, visors or door panels. Tilt column. INTERIOR IS NEARLY PERFECT. Rear window works good from the dash, the key switch on the tailgate seems to need replaced. Body has what seems to be surface, paint is flaking but body feels smooth and is solid. Truck was completly repainted about a year before it was stored, bad paint prep perhaps? Has nearly new tires, new shocks, new brakes, brake lines, master cyl and booster. Has 351m with edelbrock performer intake with new 600 cfm electric choke holley. Burns no oil, rear main has dime sized drip. Newer extra cooling raditator. C-6 trans with rv shift kit and aux tranny cooler. np 205 t case. 3.55 axles. 4x4 works fine. New a/c compresor and accumulator, A/C is ICE COLD. New gas tank, sending unit and fuel pump. Still retains it's factory exhaust, quiet and solid. Have original bronco spare tire cover in great shape, not pictured. No trailer hitch, has NEVER pulled anything! Everything works as it should except key on tailgate as noted earlier. This truck runs and drives like a new, Would not hesitate to drive it cross country tomarrow. Will help load on truck you send or local pickup. $200 Non refundable depost through pay pal at time of purchase and the balance in cash if local pickup or certified check if shipped. check clears before truck leaves my possesion.

After one of the worst winters in recent memory for much of the country, summer is finally here. It's time to drop the top, open the sunroof or at least put down the windows and take a long drive. The United States Postal Service is celebrating the season's sun in automotive style with two new hot rod Forever stamps.
Tue, 27 Aug 2013 08:28:00 EST
Both stamps depict classic '32 Ford hot rods. One shows the car from the front at a low angle in red (pictured above), while the other depicts the car from the back in black with flames running down the side.
To introduce the new stamps on their first day of availability, the USPS went straight to the source at the National Street Rod Association Street Rod Nationals in York, PA. They were unveiled by Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe, Car Crazy host Barry Meguiar and NSRA Special Events Director Jerry Kennedy.
Ford has combined multiple steps into one with its commercial vehicle configurator, which allows users to choose, design and place orders for the Transit, Transit Connect, E-Series vans and F-Series Super Duty trucks.

The most interesting part of the new configurator is a fairly robust design tool. Users are able to choose paint color and wrap the vehicle, and then create their own graphics. No materials are needed - Ford provides numerous background textures, text boxes, plenty of shapes and 20 categories of images including floral, construction, plumbing and skylines. Self-created designs or images can be uploaded to the system as well.
We played around with the design tool a bit and uploaded our own image to create the Autoblog Podcast Live van you see here. Feel free to check out the configurator and make your own design.
Just one year after launching the all-new 2013 Fusion, Ford is reportedly set to alter the sedan's powertrain lineup with the addition of a new 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder EcoBoost engine. A member of Blue Oval Forums apparently got their hands on the ordering guide for the 2014 model year Fusion, and this 1.5-liter mill is set to be introduced with late availability.
This lines up with other news about the Chinese-market Mondeo being offered with a new 1.5-liter EcoBoost - a derivative of the 1.0-liter triple that will come to North America under the hood of the Fiesta (note: the 1.0 is also offered in the current Euro-spec Mondeo). In the Chinese application, the larger three-pot engine produces 177 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, which is very close to the current 1.6-liter inline-four's output numbers of 178 hp and 184 lb-ft.
What's interesting, however, is that the 1.6-liter engine will reportedly still be offered in the Fusion, but only with the six-speed manual transmission. The smaller 1.5-liter EcoBoost will only be mated to a six-speed SelectShift automatic, and will feature start/stop. This means that while the 1.5 is slightly down on power compared to the 1.6, it could easily improve fuel economy numbers, allowing the Fusion to regain the title of having the best mileage in the segment, likely besting the 38 miles per gallon of the Nissan Altima. Currently, the Fusion 1.6 is rated at 23 mpg city and 36 mpg highway.
