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.

Shelby boosts production of 575-hp Raptor on early demand

Mon, 08 Apr 2013 08:45:00 EST

Shelby American unveiled its all-new Shelby Raptor at the New York Auto Show last month, saying that it would build just 100 examples of its off-road bad boy, a pickup priced at $17,995 over the cost of the donor Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. But the Las Vegas outfit apparently underestimated just how popular the supercharged 575-horsepower 4x4 would actually be.
Strong early demand reportedly has Shelby singing a whole new tune, as the company is now saying it will build upwards of 500 units annually. While the increased production will likely make for at least 400 more happy owners, those who were on the original short list - possibly speculating on future values - might not be grinning as much. Needless to say, the company has assured everyone that each and every one of the modified Raptors will still be listed in the official Shelby registry.
Keep in mind that Ford isn't sitting idle on its trophy-truck-for-the-street, either. The company will reveal its own 2014 F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition this month.

We spy the Ford Mustang King Cobra early at SEMA

Tue, 04 Nov 2014 11:28:00 EST

As is the case with most auto shows, waiting for the reveal of hot new models is the worst part. So, while our own Drew Phillips has been wandering the halls here in Las Vegas since they unlocked the doors for SEMA 2014, we didn't expect him to come back with any big reveals until later in the day. Until this happened.
Meandering by the Ford stand, Phillips eagle-eyed a trunk lid that caught his attention. Popping out from an otherwise draped 2015 Mustang, the matte black lid clearly has the name King Cobra embossed on the rear.
That name is interesting for a few reasons: to start, Ford hasn't used the Cobra name (without "Jet" attached) since way back in 2004, so a new snake is certainly something to take note of. Second, the King Cobra name dates all the way back to the ill-remembered Mustang II, meaning there is a clear link to Blue Oval history here.

Ford EcoBoost successful because of Soviet laser weapons system expert?

Sun, 28 Jul 2013 09:01:00 EST

Mike Kluzner is a man of many talents. Not only is he the software engineer responsible for fuel system diagnostics for Ford globally, he "got his start designing laser weapon systems capable of disabling the navigation systems of enemy satellites" for the former Soviet Union. Quite a résumé, wouldn't you say?
You may be asking yourself the same question that popped into our minds upon reading about Mr. Kluzner: What do laser weapon systems have to do with Ford and its EcoBoost engines? We'll let the man answer himself. "The same process for analyzing key physical relationships works for what we do today in engine combustion, catalyst chemistry and mechanics," says Kluzner. "These are all part of Ford's software engineering expertise." Who are we to argue?
Ford also employs an engineer who previously designed software to detect damage to the heat tiles on the International Space Station, as well as one who's past work involved particle physics, says the automaker in the press release below. David Bell (pictured above right), global boost system controls engineer for Ford, describes the software running EcoBoost as "the secret sauce" that makes the technology work as the driver intends and demands.
