1974 Ford Bronco Ranger Restoration Project on 2040-cars

I bought this Bronco from the previous owner because he was being deployed over seas and did not want to pay to store it. I had intended to restore it, but I am moving in a couple months and will not be able to take this with me. The frame was cleaned and painted along with having a 3.5" suspension lift installed about 10 years ago. The suspension lift only has leaf springs and will need shock absorbers. The body does have severe rust and will need new floor pans, fenders, tailgate, and several patch panels, or you could also just order a new fiberglass body to replace the rusted out steel one. The body is currently just placed on the frame and is not bolted down. It has 302 that does turnover freely, but should probably be rebuilt. The transmission is a 4 speed manual NP435 which is linked to the Dana 20 transfer case. The engine, transmission, and transfer case are also just set on the frame and are not attached. The tires are 36X13.50-15LT Super Swampers. It does have a brand new Borgeson Steering shaft installed. When the frame was restored it was built for off roading as you can see in the pictures it has heavy duty steering components, a differential guard, hi-lift jack, and skid plate. Please look at the pictures as they will help show the condition much better.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask. I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

I could possibly deliver within 100 miles or so for a small cost. 
The buyer is responsible for making shipping arrangements if necessary. 
This vehicle does not come with a warranty and is sold as-is. 
The vehicle is for sale locally, and I do reserve the right to end the listing early.
Please ask any and all questions you have before purchasing.
A deposit of $500 is required within 48 hours of the auction close.

Muscle wins big at 2013 Amelia Island Concours as 1936 Duesenberg, 1968 Ford GT40 take top honors

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 16:30:00 EST

The 18th-annual Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance took place this past weekend, and in one of the show's biggest years yet (bringing in more than 25,000 spectators and attracting more than 300 vehicles), two powerhouses ended up winning the judges' hearts. The top Concours d'Elegance award went to a 1936 Duesenberg SJN, while the Concours de Sport went to one of the celebrated marques, a 1968 Ford GT40.
Owned by Helen and Jack Nethercutt of Sylmar, CA, this flawless Duesy is described as "one of the most powerful open cars of the 1930s," and it displays design cues of the era like rolled fenders and a tapered rear end. The SJN's supercharged straight-eight allowed it to accelerate to 100 miles per hour in just 17 seconds - surely not a disappointing feat for its day.
On a much different level of performance and timelessness, this Gulf-livery GT40 from the Rocky Mountain Auto Collection is not outdone by the elegance of the big Duesenberg thanks to some well-documented racing history. This not only includes winning at LeMans in both 1968 and 1969 - Chassis No. 1075 also managed to win a total of six times in just 11 races.

Ford books $2.6B pretax quarterly profit

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 14:00:00 EST

While its crosstown competitors at General Motors are smarting over a drastic drop in net income to $200 million in the second quarter, Ford has reason to celebrate. The Blue Oval has announced its own Q2 financial results, including a growing net income of $1.3 billion, a $78 million increase over last year. Pretax profits for the company reached $2.6 billion, up $44 million from 2013, but total revenue dropped slightly to $37.4 billion, down from $37.9 billion. Profits per share before one-time charges totaled 40 cents per share, beating Wall Street analysts' expectations of 36 cents a share.
Regionally, the Blue Oval performed strongly, as well. North America posted a record quarterly pre-tax profit of $2.4 billion, a $119 million increase. Europe also showed signs of turn around with its first profit in three years of $14 million after a loss of $306 million in Q2 2013. Ford is actually predicting profitability in the troubled region in 2015. Asia Pacific operations also performed well with $159 million in profits, up $29 million from last year. The only region where the business posted a loss was South America.
According to Automotive News, Ford also announced more precise plans about the changeover to build the aluminum-intensive 2015 F-150. In August, the Dearborn plant will shutdown for eight weeks to retool and its Kansas City plant will do the same next year.

Jay Leno takes a Surfin' Safari in a 1937 Ford Woodie Restomod

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 12:44:00 EST

Woodie wagons were a major part of surfing culture in the 1960s, offering coastal style and a ton of room, and they even earned a mention in the Beach Boys' classic song Surfin' Safari. This week, Jay Leno's Garage takes a look at two modern, restomodded examples of these style icons.
Unlike a lot of restomods, builder Scott Bonowski keeps these wagons looking almost completely stock on the outside, and all of the upgrades are hidden underneath the timber. You can't tell by looking at it, but the '37 Woodie (pictured above) has independent front and rear suspension, disc brakes and a Ford 5.0-liter V8 under the hood.
Beyond the mechanical aspect, the craftsmanship into the wood is astounding. Bonowski claims there are between 30 and 50 coats of varnish on this wagon. It makes these woodies as much of a piece of fine furniture as a vehicle to drive.
