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.

Ford C-Max Solar Energi takes a recharging station wherever it goes

Wed, 08 Jan 2014 08:28:00 EST

Companies ranging in size from small startups to major automakers have been experimenting with solar-powered charging stations for EVs and plug-in hybrids. And, of course, people have been powering vehicles with onboard solar panels for quite some time, too. Still, Ford's new C-Max Solar Energi Concept shows the promise of a truly practical implementation of solar on a production vehicle, and it may not be as far off in the future as we had thought.
As we reported a few days ago, the Solar concept makes use of a "concentrator lens" that focuses sunlight onto the Ford's roof-mounted solar panels. The special lens follows the rays of the sun to maximize the amount of charge being fed to the batteries of the car, taking about a day to fully charge the 21-mile, all-electric range of the C-Max Energi. Ford data suggests that combination might be enough to power 75 percent of all trips made by a statistically average driver. In turn, using the sun to power a vehicle could reduce yearly C02 emissions by up to four metric tons when compared with the driver of an average gasoline-powered sedan.
We've got live images of the C-Max Solar Energi Concept, jauntily tilted on its display to best present it's signature solar panels, straight from the CES floor.

How Ford plans to handle insurance and repair questions surrounding new aluminum-bodied F-150

Tue, 21 Jan 2014 14:37:00 EST

Building a car out of aluminum has a number of benefits - the lighter weight allows the vehicle to be more agile, more fuel efficient, make better use of its power and be more resistant to dings and dents. The downside to the advanced construction, though, is that repairs are both challenging and expensive. That's troubling for the new, aluminum-bodied Ford F-150, because it's kind of made a name for itself as a rugged, durable work vehicle.
How will the legions of Ford buyers cope when it comes time to insure and repair their new trucks? Well, according to Ford, it's expecting a ten-percent jump in insurance costs for the aluminum-bodied F-150, although Ford's truck marketing manager, Doug Scott, was quick to point out that the F-150 is generally cheaper to insure than its competition from Ram and General Motors. "At the end of the day, that's sort of a wash," Scott told Automotive News at last week's Detroit Auto Show. "We've spent a lot of time and feel very comfortable that that's not going to be an inhibitor."
The other issue facing Ford is the distinct lack of body shops that have the training or equipment to repair aluminum-bodied vehicles. AN cites an estimate from the Automotive Service Association claiming that of the 30,000 independent body shops in the US, less than 10 percent are able to work on aluminum.

Are you the next Ford Edge? [UPDATE]

Wed, 13 Feb 2013 10:59:00 EST

What looks to be the next Ford Edge has been leaked in an apparent corporate Powerpoint presentation deck. Despite the thumbnail image's blurry and pixelated quality, it appears as if the next generation crossover will be staying close to its current aesthetic despite an all-new front clip with redesigned grille, headlamps, and lower fascia with integrated fog lights.
The upscale-minded Blue Oval CUV is due for a redesign in 2015, having just received a mid-cycle refresh for 2011. It isn't clear what changes lie beneath the new skin, either in terms of mechanicals or interior refinement, but we suspect Ford will be looking to put some distance between the next generation model and the new Escape, which is suddenly much more car-like and not that far off the more expensive Edge in terms of overall size, power or refinement.
UPDATE: Substituted clearer image - thanks, Sean!
