1973 Ford Bronco Explorer. This Bronco has its original paint and CA license plates with the original white seats which are in good condition with no rips or tears.
The original engine (302) and automatic transmission (C-4) were recently rebuilt by the previous owner and I have put on less than 4000 miles since purchasing it.

A new carburetor , Headers and exhaust system were installed at the time of the rebuild.
A new electronic ignition system.
It has new front disk power brake pads installed about 3 months ago on a conversion kit put in by previous owner. The passenger and driver floor pans were replaced by the previous owner. It currently has aftermarket bumpers to accommodate a winch ( not included) and a spare tire ( not included).
I will include the original chrome front and rear bumpers (which are not pictured and are in excellent condition).
It has its original Dana 44 front end and stock rear end and it has about a 2-3 inch lift.
It has a new high output power steering pump and the box is in excellent condition.
It had new tires (31X10.50) and aluminum wheels put on when I purchased it About 4000 miles ago.
It also had new rubber seals installed around the driver and passenger doors.
It has the stock 12 gal rear fuel tank and an 8 gal side tank.
I have owned this vehicle for 2 years. I had the top off and stored it and the vehicle in my garage during the winter. I never drove it in the rain. I was going to finish restoring it but just don't have the interest any more. It is a great daily driver. It runs great with no issues.
It has minimal rust and most of its original parts. There are a couple of small dents the largest on the front left fender which I have included as a close-up in my pictures.
I am not the original owner and I bought it in Lodi CA from a private party who said they were the third owner.
I have tried to photograph all of the rust, dents/scratches and area's of concern to give everyone a clear idea of the condition of this vehicle.
I spent a year searching northern CA for one of these when I was in the market and this was the cleanest one in my price range that I came across in that time frame.
It drives and brakes straight and with the top on is very quiet inside which tells me it is a solid and well maintained vehicle.

These are great investments and this one is a very popular color combination.

Just when you thought you'd figured the fullsize truck market out, Ford goes and throws us a massive curve ball with the 2015 F-150. The big headline news aren't tow or payload ratings, though we're sure those figures will be fully competitive if not class leading, they haven't yet been announced. Instead, the big headline news Ford is highlighting are the truck's new aluminum-intensive structure and 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine.

And with good reason - all that aluminum means that Ford was able to cut a massive 700 pounds from the truck's curb weight. That is going to cause all sorts of great things to happen to the 2015 F-150's driving dynamics, performance and fuel efficiency, not to mention its ability to haul heavy loads. For those customers worried about the strength of aluminum versus the more conventional steel, Ford is quick to point out that many military vehicles, such as the HMMWV and Bradley Fighting Vehicle, use a very similar sort of aluminum alloy in their construction.
It's also worth mentioning that the backbone, a fully boxed ladder frame, is hewn from high-strength steel. Ford says "2015 Ford F-150 is the strongest and most durable F-150 ever," for what it's worth, claiming that "torture tested" in labs and in the real world for more than 10 million miles. What's more, the truck, in disguised form, completed all 883 miles of the Baja 1000.
In case you haven't been paying attention, Ford has been gradually redesigning its lineup to sport a familiar face. The Aston Martin-inspired grille shape debuted on the Fusion and was soon applied to the Fiesta. Even the front end of the new Mustang takes its cues from the same, and we're sure other models will soon be made-over to fall in line. The next on the docket? The Focus.

Set to be unveiled in little over a week at the Geneva Motor Show, the revised Focus has leaked out a tad early, revealing a mild facelift that bears that same trapezoidal grille with horizontal slats. Along with the new grille, the headlights, lower fascia and hood appear to have been reshaped. Around back there appears to be a new rear bumper and taillights, but otherwise the shape remains largely the same as the current model.
Expect the updates to be applied to all bodystyles offered around the world, including the hatchback, wagon and sedan. The engine lineup is expected to carry over largely unchanged, though the plug-in hybrid powertrain from the C-Max Energi could port over to the revised Focus. Plus Ford seems to have taken the opportunity to spruce things up in the cabin some. Check it out in the image gallery above and watch this space for the official announcement as we pack our bags for Switzerland.
The V8 grunt of the Mustang has defined Ford performance cars in the US for the last 50 years, but in Europe, the Blue Oval has nearly as a long history of building some of the best hot hatches on the market with the Fiesta, Escort and later the Focus. The latest Fiesta ST has just hit the roads on both sides of the pond and has been enthusiastically received thanks to its combination of a peppy, turbocharged engine and hatchback utility.
However, Europe is getting a bumper crop of hot hatches at the moment, including the forthcoming, third-generation Mini Cooper S. Should Ford have waited to launch the ST until it knew how the competition performed? That's the answer that Xcar is after in its latest video, and it took the Fiesta to the track and some very misty, Welsh roads to find out. Scroll down to find out whether the ST stacks up.
