New FORD hubcaps and an extra.
Locking GAS cap.
2 sets of keys.

7.3 IDI Diesel has a great reputation of going forever. I have run it unloaded, and also totally full of furniture while pulling a 21 foot trailer and it always gets the same 10-11 MPG.  Will cruise at 80 on flat land.  Driving it cross country on the highway is like a boat on a calm lake!

I registered it as an RV in California and it is only $84 per year for tags!!!!!!!! As a commercial vehicle it was almost $500.  NO SMOG-1998 and older diesels do not require SMOG check.

Located in Rosamond, CA 75 minutes from Burbank.  If you want to fly into LAX or Burbank airport to drive it home I will pick you up at the airport.

Pay my BUY IT NOW price and I'll throw in:
 windshield mounted GARMIN GPS already installed,
 40 gallon new FORD diesel fuel tank I was going to mount in place of the spare tire for a 2nd tank,
 400Watt small Microwave that just needs the door handle glued into place(hard to find a microwave less than 700Watts).
 Powered cooler that plugs into the lighter that can hold about 12+ cans.
 Battery Tender brand trickle charger that automatically keeps batteries charged that is hard wired already.
 Set of sheets for the bed.
 Oil and filter for your next oil change.

I never thought I would sell it, I spared no expense on maintenance keeping it up until this Fall.  My idea was to add a few things to it to make it more of an expedition vehicle:
crank out awning.
2nd gas tank to go further between fill ups or make it a WVO tank and convert it to run both.
15 gallon water tank with 12V pump for out door showers.
mount spare on rear door with bike rack.
Put a generator box on the back door.
install Solar panels on roof and add 3 house batteries to run electric.
CHECK OUT the site for doing all these off-road camper builds at expeditionportal do tc om.



THE BAD:
AC does not blow cold, probably a leak.  I had it repaired 3.5 years ago and it worked great until this August.  Did not get an estimate.
Power steering pump whines a little when you turn the wheel too fast.
Oil pan is probably leaking as it appears wet on pan and in the area.  It does not drip oil much, maybe one drop each time I park it.  It does not burn or use any noticeable amount of oil.
I will remove magnets and easy to remove vinyl decals but it is your responsibility to remove all of the remaining decals within 60 days.
Cruise control buttons are on steering wheel but does not work.  I think they unhook that for Ambulance driving safety, I just never figured out where it was disconnected.
A few rust spots that I sanded and touched up.  One large rust hole about the size of a silver dollar under drivers door, sanded and painted but not really repaired yet.
Ambulance does not have the inverter to run 110V wall outlets, they must have taken it out just before I bought from the ambulance company.  It still has 2 wires with connectors ran to the storage closet so maybe it's a simple install.



I require a $500 PAYPAL DEPOSIT within 24 hours of auction end.
If picking up in person, only cash is acceptable.  I have a clear title in hand.  Must pick up by December 22nd.
Will ship but you must pay for and make all arrangements.Balance must be paid by bank to bank wire transfer within 5 business days, and must ship it within 15 days.
 
For questions call me anytime up until 11 PM California time any night.  66 1  no 87  4 texting7 546. or ask me at animal rescue and transport at ho t ma il dot co m.

Next Ford Mustang to drop 400 pounds

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 16:29:00 EST

The Ford Mustang is already the lightest of the current crop of muscle cars, at around 3,600 pounds for a GT coupe with the six-speed manual transmission. That's almost 260 pounds less than a Chevrolet Camaro SS and about 450 pounds less than a Dodge Challenger R/T, which means the Mustang has a pretty big advantage when it comes to handling, braking, accelerating and economy. More good news: The next Mustang will be even lighter.
According to a report from Edmunds, the sixth-generation Mustang, which is set to debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show, will shed an additional 400 pounds of body fat. That 11-percent weight reduction will be thanks to lightweight materials, with a particular focus on using stronger, but less material in construction. Aluminum will feature heavily, but Edmunds' inside source warns that there is "nothing terribly exotic" coming to the original pony car.
The other big news is that the new Mustang will be smaller overall. It's going to be 15-inches shorter than the 188.5-inch Mustang on sale today, while it'll also be 6.5 inches narrower. Shorter overhangs, both in the front and rear, are also good signs for those that want an agile Mustang.

Ford to update Sync, MyFord Touch software... again

Wed, 07 Aug 2013 11:01:00 EST

Ford hasn't had the best luck with its MyFord Touch and Sync systems, as the finicky infotainment system has been subject to a critical whooping while customer issues have helped sink Ford's IQS scores. The automaker has made a concerted effort, though, to try and fix MyFord Touch. And while the results have been mixed, The Blue Oval is hoping its latest free update, set to go live next week, will make things better.
According to a report from The Detroit News, the new system promises streamlined voice commands with fewer levels between opening query and actual result. Ford is also addressing where certain options are selected on the touchscreen. Rather than working one of the four quadrants on the homescreen, users will be able to select anywhere within the quadrant to make adjustments.
While it might only be a band-aid for MFT's problems, the fact that Ford is still trying to improve it is a promising sign. It's going to take more than just this update to address the system's ills, though.

Ford recalls select Explorer, E-Series vans

Tue, 21 Jan 2014 08:00:00 EST

Just a few days ago we brought you news that Ford had issued a recall on 28,000 units of the Edge crossover for problems related to the fuel line. But now the Blue Oval has issued recall notices on two more of its larger vehicles.
The first relates to the Explorer, 395 examples of which from the 2011 and 2012 model years were found to have problems with their steering systems if they underwent service after September 1, 2013. An apparent software glitch could lock the steering gear, preventing the driver from steering the vehicle and thereby increasing the risk of a crash. As a result, Ford dealers are being instructed to check their records to identify the problematic vehicles and bring them in to have the steering gear replaced. Details of the recall can be found in the PDF linked here.
The second problem revolves around E-Series vans that may develop bubbles in their windshields under hot temperatures. The decrease in visibility through the problematic windshield could - you guessed it - "increase the risk of a crash." As a result, Ford is calling in 4,532 units of the E-150, E-250, E-350 and E-450 vans built in the relatively short window between May 12 and May 26, 2011. Details of this recall can be found in the notice below from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
