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.

Exceptionally rare '65 Ford GT40 Roadster prototype up for auction

Sat, 14 Jun 2014 15:00:00 EST

Think of mid-engined supercars and your mind is bound to gravitate towards Europe, but the United States has been known to make a handful from time to time - exceptional vehicles from the likes of Vector, SSC, Mosler, Hennessey, and Saleen. But long before any of those came around, Ford famously became obsessed with beating Ferrari at its own game, leading to the development of the iconic GT40.
The story is well known, sending Ford to the checkered flag at Le Mans four times in a row in the late 1960s. Ford and Shelby also built over 100 for public consumption, but just four of them were roadsters. Of those only one remains in original condition, and now that exceedingly rare example going up for auction.
Consigned to RM Auctions for its mid-August sale during Pebble Beach weekend in Monterey, California, this 1965 model is the first GT40 Roadster built. It was used as a development and demonstration vehicle for Ford and Shelby. Carroll Shelby himself drove Henry Ford II in this very car during one of many test and demo events, this time held for Ford's board of directors in Los Angeles.

Ford hiring 2,200 salaried US workers this year

Fri, 11 Jan 2013 00:01:00 EST

With its influx of popular new products made in the US, Ford Motor Company has announced that it intends to hire 2,200 new salaried workers domestically this year. This is the biggest increase of salaried workers for Ford in the last 10 years, and it is all a part of Ford's contract commitment to the United Auto Workers union to bring 12,000 new jobs to the US by 2015.
There were no specifics as to where in the US these job openings will be, but Ford did reiterate that it will be spending $773 million on equipment upgrades and capacity expansion at six plants located in southeast Michigan; as a whole, Ford is investing a total of $6.2 billion to its US assembly plants over the next couple years. According to recently appointed president of the Americas Joe Hinrichs, the new jobs will be focused on areas such as engineering, manufacturing and computer software. Ford will post its job openings online at careers.ford.com, and it will also use social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to recruit new workers, including military veterans.
Scroll down for more about Ford's planned job growth as well as how to go about applying for said openings.

Ken Block's 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR and CR Supercars Villain are retro done right

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 20:20:00 EST

Gymkhana king Ken Block has had a pretty simple car history in his trademark videos, starting out with Subaru Impreza rally cars before moving into Ford Focus racers for the past four installments. His next video, though, Gymkhana Seven, kind of goes back in time.
Rather than the cutting-edge rally racers of past videos, Block will pilot a heavily modified 1965 Ford Mustang, called the Hoonicorn. How heavily modified is it? Well, Block's Hooligan Racing Division, ASD Motorsports and Vaughn Gittin Jr.'s RTR, spent two years working on it, ditching the standard engine and rear-wheel-drive layout and replacing it with a 410-cubic-inch Roush Yates V8. Yes, that's a NASCAR engine, and it produces 845 horsepower.
A NASCAR-powered Mustang would be news in itself, but it's the other powertrain changes made by Block and Co. that really makes headlines. Power is channeled through a one-off Sadev transmission and all-wheel-drive system, meaning that Block has basically married a NASCAR stock car with a WRC racer. ASD also developed the customized suspension, tubular chassis and roll cage. The wide Mustang body is the work of RTR and Block's own Hoonigan Racing Division, while the 18-inch fifteen52 wheels are shod in Pirelli Trofeo R tires that use a specialized compound exclusive to Block.
