1956 Ford Crown Victoria
Frame-off Restoration Project
No Reserve Auction 

This is a 1956 Ford Crown Victoria. This auction includes the running drive train, body, and remainder of pieces to complete the project. There is a new front and rear windshield, set of wire-wheel style hub caps/centerpieces, and interior kit. The 312 engine was rebuilt, brake system rebuilt, suspension rebuilt, and is mechanically sound. There are too many parts to list, but I have tried to capture as much as possible with photos. I have many other additional photos upon request. 

The body was just set on the frame on 3/28/13 to make transportation easy for buyer.

More details: This is the beginning of a frame off restoration. The engine (V8, 312") was completely rebuilt (I have a recent start-up video available on request), and has been stored in a garage for the past 15+ years. The chrome parts were re-finished in 1992 and are in good condition. Body appears in good shape, but there are several relatively small defects in the floor (see photos). Title, which I believe is original, is included with the sale along with new matching VIN plate.

This was my father's car which I inherited, and I am not as knowledgable about details as he would have been. It is my understanding that all parts (except the two front seat cushions) are present to complete this vehicle. I am selling this vehicle as-is: what you see is what you get and I do not take responsibility for any missing components. Prospective buyers are more than welcome to see in person. Please let me know if you would like any additional photos.

$1000 Non-refundable deposit due at auction end. Buyer is responsible for pickup/transportation, but I am more than willing to help you load the vehicle. Call me with questions, my name is Tom.

Ford tumbles to second worst in Consumer Reports reliability survey, list dominated by Japanese [w/video]

Mon, 29 Oct 2012 15:59:00 EST

It's no secret that MyFord Touch has had its share of problems since being introduced, but the most recent reliability survey from Consumer Reports shows just how much this infotainment system has affected Ford. Just two years ago, the automaker was in the top 10 for the institute's reliability rankings, but since then, it has tumbled to the second-lowest rung just above dead-last Jaguar. In addition to MyFord Touch, CR also attributes a handful of new products that have had issues right out of the gate.
Compiled from 1.2 million subscriber surveys, this year's auto reliability survey heavily favors Japanese automakers, with eight of the 10 spots hailing from Japan. Toyota brands grabbed the top three spots (Scion, Toyota and Lexus - in that order) with Mazda, Subaru, Honda and Acura filling the next four spots. The only non-Asian automaker cracking the top 10 was Audi at number eight.
Audi climbed a total of 18 spots from last year, and Cadillac and GMC round out this year's top gainers breaking into the top 15. Helping Cadillac's upward movement, the CTS Coupe was named the most reliable domestic car. Lincoln, Volvo and Chrysler join Ford on this year's biggest loser list.

This woman owns the first Ford Mustang sold in the US

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 11:29:00 EST

As Ford celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Mustang with the unveiling of the all-new sixth-gen design, one Chicago women can lay claim to a piece of Mustang history. According to CBS Chicago, Gail Wise was the first person in the US to buy a Mustang in 1964, and she did so two days before the car was even unveiled to the public.
Wise, then a 22-year-old teacher, went into the Chicago Ford dealership wanting to buy a convertible, and a salesperson ushered her over to car covered by a tarp. That car was a baby blue Mustang convertible, which she still owns today - along with the documentation. After sitting for almost 30 years and undergoing a full restoration, the car now looks to be in original condition. The report says that this $3,400 purchase could be worth anywhere between $100,000 and $250,000. While this worked out well for Mrs. Wise, we wouldn't recommend anyone going into a dark, back room of a dealership hoping to get a jump on the purchase of a 2015 Mustang.
