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.

2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost flogged and analyzed by Ignition

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 19:59:00 EST

Aside from the way it looks and perhaps its independent rear suspension, the biggest bit of news on the 2015 Mustang may be the inclusion of its 2.3-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. That blown mill marks the first time since the Mustang SVO of the '80s that a turbo has been fitted under the engine of Ford's pony car.
The Mustang EcoBoost is the subject of the latest episode of Ignition from Motor Trend, giving us a great look at the technical, nitty-gritty side of the turbocharged coupe. Covering it from bow to stern, host Carlos Lago walks us through the boosted Ford before taking to the track for some driving impressions, with particular praise given to the low-end grunt of the 2.3-liter mill.
Check out the full video and then let us know which 2015 Mustang has your interest piqued the most - the EcoBoost four, the 5.0L V8 or the entry-level V6.

Unrestored 1969 Shelby GT500 one of many classic barn finds going to auction

Wed, 19 Mar 2014 16:01:00 EST

We love a good barn find here at Autoblog. We like that there's a palpable excitement and sense of mystery surrounding barn finds. Each case has its own uniqueness to it, and this latest discovery is no different: an unrestored, one-owner 1969 Shelby GT500 with just 8,531 miles on it.
In the case of this particular barn find, many of the typical questions have already been answered. For example, we know who owned it - his name was Larry Brown. He recently passed away, and as he had no wife or children to inherit the estate, the car he purchased at Pennsylvania Ford dealer in May of 1969, will be auctioned off by Ron Gilligan Auctioneers.
The car was fastidiously maintained, having never been driven in the rain. In fact, Brown never even washed it, out of fear of it rusting. According to the auction website, the last time this car saw water was probably when it was detailed ahead of being delivered to Brown. If that doesn't sound like a fanatical sense of maintenance on the part of this GT500's owner, this next part will. The interior has been treated to a similarly painstaking attempt at preservation, with garbage bags covering the seats and two layers of floor mats over the carpets. The result is a car that, aesthetically, is in remarkable shape considering it's spent so long in a barn.

Watch how a Ford Raptor rolls down the assembly line in Dearborn

Sun, 30 Mar 2014 19:19:00 EST

Bloomberg TV reporter Matt Miller is the proud new owner of a pretty killer truck. How do we know? The reporter headed to Dearborn, MI to Ford's assembly plant, with a film crew in tow, to see exactly how his new F-150 SVT Raptor and its mother-loving 6.2-liter V8 engine, was screwed together.
The resulting video does an excellent job of summing up how an assemblage of parts and pieces is turned into a triple-black Raptor, thanks to the work of some 1,000 employees and about 20 hours of real time. Click through below to see how the truck is born, with a surprise cameo playing the part of delivery driver at the end.
