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.

Ford is in a bit of a pickle for importing and selling Turkey-built Transit Connect cargo vans as passenger vehicles in the US, then converting them to commercial-vehicle specification stateside in an effort to bypass a 25-percent tax imposed on vehicles imported for commercial use. Automakers are required to pay a 2.5-percent tax on imported passenger vehicles.

The Blue Oval got into trouble for this in a January ruling in which U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials asked Ford to stop the practice of importing the Transit Connect vehicles with passenger seats, then removing and shredding them. Now Automotive News reports that Ford is appealing the ruling. The 25-percent "Chicken Tax," as the tariff is often called, is 50 years old and was enacted as a response to a German tariff on chickens. Like Ford, Chrysler bypasses the higher tariff, but it does so in a different manner. It partially disassembles Sprinter cargo vans before shipping them to the US, then rebuilds them at a plant in South Carolina.
But the ruling against Ford's strategy states that it "serves no manufacturing or commercial purpose" and is there to "manipulate the tariff schedule," Automotive News reports. As Ford's appeal goes through, it is importing the Transit Connect and paying the higher tax, hoping for a favorable outcome and planning to build the next-generation Transit Connect, which it plans to launch before the end of the year, in Spain.
The signs have come down and retail production ended back in October of 2010. Now, the very last Mercury model has rolled off the assembly line. This last Mercury somewhat fittingly takes the form of a Grand Marquis reporting for fleet duty. It was built at the St. Thomas plant in Ontario, Canada, which is the same facility that continues to produce the Ford Crown Victoria and Lincoln Town Car for fleet and livery duty.

St. Thomas' days are numbered, however, as the factory is slated to close on August 31. When it goes, the Panther platform is likely to follow. So long, and thanks for all the fish memories.

With the 2015 Ford Mustang firmly on the scene, the inevitable comparisons with its arch rival, the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro are just starting to trickle out. Over the next several months, you're likely to be inundated by every outlet's muscle car comparison, whether it be the turbocharged Ford against the V6 Chevy, a V8-powered convertible comparo or what we have here, a competition between each vehicle's performance upgrade.
Motor Trend has pitted the Camaro SS 1LE against a Mustang with the GT Performance Pack for a comprehensive series of comparisons on the test stage, street and finally, at Willow Springs with ace Randy Pobst behind the wheel. As per usual, we aren't about to spoil this one for you.
