True un-restored and uncut 1966 Ford Bronco Roadster, U13 vin code. Built in October, 1965. Bought from original owner's son in 1994 in Charlotte, NC. 75,103 original miles; original engine rebuilt in 1999 but only 1,000 miles since then. Has been in storage since 2000, driven occasionally until 2006. Pulled out of storage last month, taken to the mechanic for a complete check-up, and then detailed.
To the best of my knowledge, the Bronco has never been wrecked. I've certainly never wrecked it and I was told when I bought it, that it had never even been in a fender bender. The gas tank leaks when full.
New high-quality, custom-made seat covers (front buckets and rear bench) to match the original factory spec vinyl, including gray color (only color available on the '66 models) and texture, installed in 2000. Not sure if the paint is original (it's not been painted since I've had it) but is in very good condition. Small, slight bubble rust under paint in one place on front right quarter panel, near bumper. Slight surface rust on original floor pans; slight surface rust on the original bumpers. When I say "surface", I mean surface.
Just had all fluids changed, new tires (235/75R15 Goodyear radials), new battery, new brakes, rebuilt master cylinder, new right front brake cylinder, new front axle seals. My mechanic could not find a new distributor cap or rotor button, so it "bucks" a little on take off.
Less than 5,000 Roadsters were produced by Ford. How many are still around? And how many are still around in this condition...uncut, unmolested, and un-restored? My guess is less than five.

To answer a question I received...this Bronco came from the factory without "hard" doors and top. It came with canvas doors (mounted on metal rod frames) and canvas top. There are no door hinges, just holes to receive the metal rod frames at the bottom. The current door frames are original; the canvas doors and canvas top are replacements the original owner did in the 1980's.
I've posted a picture from a few years ago showing the Bronco with the doors off and the top rolled up in the back and on the sided. I have a picture somewhere of the top completely off but cannot find it right now; if I find it, I'll post it.

It's not the first time Ford has participated in the Daytona Prototype class as an engine supplier, but in revealing this new EcoBoost V6-powered Riley Technologies prototype for the new United SportsCar Championship, Ford is making a statement: "We want to show Ford EcoBoost's capabilities as an engine that provides both performance and fuel economy, on and off the track," says Jamie Allison, director of Ford Racing.

In addition to supplying the 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6, Ford had its production designer Garen Nicoghosian give the racecar brand-inspired design cues with support from Ford Racing chief aerodynamicist Bernie Marcus.
The car is scheduled to compete at next year's Rolex 24 at Daytona on January 25-26, but before that, Michael Shank Racing is working with Ford at another goal. Driving his Ford Thunderbird, NASCAR champion Bill Elliott set the track's top speed record at 210.364 miles per hour during a qualifying run for the Daytona 500 - way back in 1987 -- and Ford thinks it's about time for that record to fall. What better time the introduction of this new Ford-powered Daytona Prototype? Michael Shank Racing plans to use the twin-turbo V6-powered racer to beat Elliott's record, and it expects to begin prepping for the top-speed run on October 9. Scroll down for the full press release below on Ford's latest race effort.
Ford's EcoBoost engine lineup is only four years old, but it is growing into an important and popular global engine. As proof of its popularity, Ford just produced its 2 millionth EcoBoost engine - a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder - which rolled off the assembly line in Louisville, Kentucky under the hood of an Escape.

Ford now offers five EcoBoost engines around the world ranging from the 1.0-liter inline-three to the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6, and the automaker is expanding production of two of its engine lines to keep up with demand. Earlier this year, Ford announced that the 2.0-liter EcoBoost would be built in Cleveland, Ohio starting in 2014 and, more recently, Ford said that it will be doubling production of the 1.0-liter EcoBoost in Germany. That turbo-three will also be produced in China at a new Ford engine plant in Chongqing.
Scroll down for Ford's full press release on this EcoBoost production milestone, including a breakdown of where all the engines were made.
After the horrible weather last winter, it's hard to look forward for the season to return this year. For those readers in much of the country, the snow is going to be flying soon, and with it comes salt on the roads. That means Ford's regional recall for the 2007-2008 Edge and Lincoln MKX arrives at the perfect time because they are at risk for corrosion.
The campaign covers 204,448 examples of the models in 21 states, plus the District of Columbia and some provinces of Canada. In total there are 186,024 vehicles in need of repair in the US and 18,424 in Canada.
According to Ford, it's possible for the area, "under the reinforcement brackets where the fuel tank is mounted" to corrode. If this happens, there might be a gas smell in the vehicle or even a fuel leak could develop. In fact, the automaker reports that one fire could be related to the problem but no injuries or accidents are reported.
