This auction is for my E350 Extended Club Wagon V10. It is in very good condition for its age and low miles for a 97 vehicle, most of it highway. I have never driven it in winter during the 9 years I have owned the vehicle, so the body is in very good condition and not rusty. During all the time I owned it, the rear three seats were stored in plastic bags in my attic, as I used the van to carry boxes of items. l towed a medium sized trailer about half a dozen times a year up to 2009, when my friend bought a larger trailer and we used his tow vehicle and trailer instead. It tows very well. It is very smooth and stable on the highway and when not towing gets about 15mpg at normal highway speeds. It is also quiet for a heavy duty vehicle.
It has new Kumho 16" 6ply tires with less than a thousand miles on them and new front shocks as of last fall.
I have owned the van for 9 years and it has been extremely reliable and never stranded me. The engine and transmission work as they should with no problems. I have always maintained the van carefully.
It has dual A/C and dual heat, which both work perfectly. All options work. I just put in a new Reese brake controller.
The driver's seat is in excellent condition and not torn or flattened out...and the interior overall is very good as you can see from the photos. There is a small bad spot of carpet in the very back and one of the rear seats has a stain...there are of course, other small stains, small dents and scratches consistent with age.
This vehicle is of course, a used vehicle and is sold as is, with no warranty. Prospective buyers may contact me to test drive the vehicle or to arrange for an inspection.
I have started the bidding very low. You will be very unlikely to find a similar vehicle in this good condition.
If you win the bid, we have entered into a binding agreement for the sale of this van. Winning bidder must send $500 by paypal within 2 days of the end of the auction. This is a non-refundable deposit. The remainder of the purchase price must be by cash when you pick up the vehicle in zip code 60004. That should be within 7 days, but I am willing to discuss other options.

Ford will be putting the brakes on production at its Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, MI, idling production during the weeks of October 28 and December 16. Ford is citing the first drop in US sales in 27 months, a 4.2-percent dip in September, as the impetus for trimming their supplies, according to Automotive News.

Ford's deft management of its supplies has been part of its success over the years, and seeing supplies of Focus and C-Max, the two vehicles built at MAP, rise from 58 and 108 days, respectively, to 71 and 122 days over the span of a month was apparently all that was need to justify the trimming. As AN points out, the rule of thumb for many automakers is to maintain a 60-day supply of vehicles.
"Ford has been focused on keeping their pricing in check. Their operating margin is in double digits. Nobody else is there and they're obviously very proud of that," Alan Baum, an auto analyst with Baum & Associates told AN. Keeping the supply chain operating smoothly and not increasing supplies too much is crucial to that healthy profit margin. After all, a large supply lowers prices ,which, in turn, cuts profit. So while this news might not be great for employees at MAP, who now have an extra two weeks of vacation time, it's far from a sign of problems in Dearborn. Quite the opposite, actually.

Justin Lapriore was there, and seemingly everywhere, getting footage of the various wares on display on the lawns and the sand and the runway. The resulting video, Born of a Blue Sky, is a 16-minute survey of some of the finer sights and plenty of engine sounds. Check it out below.
Ford has gone all-in on its efforts to offer most of its new vehicles with a fuel-efficient EcoBoost engine, but the automaker is reportedly preparing to take another big step toward improving vehicle efficiency. Automotive News is reporting that Ford will soon expand the availability of start-stop technology, which was first offered - presumably the first non-hybrid vehicle, that is - on the 2013 Fusion (equipped with the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine) as a $295 option.
The benefit of start-stop is reduced fuel consumption as it shuts the engine off at long stops, and AN quotes Ford as saying that drivers can save more than $1,000 on fuel costs over five years. Despite this, the option hasn't been popular on the Fusion thus far, but it could be more beneficial on bigger vehicles like the F-150. Ford also said that the next-gen Edge, which was previewed in concept form at the LA Auto Show, will be equipped with auto start-stop to help make the EcoBoost engines even more efficient.
