Beautifully restored 1952 Ford Marmon Harrington F2 All wheel drive 3/4 ton truck. This truck
went through a full body off nut and bolt restoration in the early 1990s by a well known 1952 Ford private
collector, parts and funding were not an issue when this truck was done and the results are obvious. I was a teen
at the time this truck was coming together and always admired its quality an detail. Then many years later I was
able to buy it out of his private collection. It's worth mentioning the
previous owner is very patriotic and wouldn't think of using foreign or any non OEM parts during its restoration so
all it's parts are USA made or NOS Ford, taken from his large inventory of NOS 52 Ford parts he was a large scale
collector. So you can be assured this isn't a restoration with a hodgepodge of foreign stuff today's market seems
to bring.
The engine is the correct era 239 V8 Flathead Ford and was rebuilt prior to the restoration and starts and runs
very nice. The only point I can deduct from the entire truck is that the engine block has a small repair near the
r/s water-pump that probably dates back to the 1950s and was obviously a good enough job that the rebuilder saw no
reason to replace it in after pressure testing in the early 90s when it was rebuilt prior to being installed in
this truck. This is not an issue it does not affect any performance or cause the engine to do anything unusual like
leak or run hot. The bed has been rebuilt using kiln treated, sanded and sealed hardwood, the trim is stainless steel and is show
caliber. The paint is one of the trucks many highlights, it is the factory color this truck was date coded with,
and is PPG Delstar Acrylic enamel, the finish is a 10 out of 10 I'm certain this paint job in today's market would
cost you over 20k to duplicate, which is one of the reasons I'm nervous to be around it. The interior is also
extremely nice and the seat has be reupholstered the spring set and even the burlap are were NOS 52 Ford, the
headliner replaced, all gages work even the dome light goes on and off with the doors being opened and shut, and
both spot lights shine bright. The odometer reads the mileage since the trucks rebuild.
To my knowledge everything on this truck works as
it should I have put a limited amount of miles on it with no problems, leaks,etc. It has been very well received
in the parades and shows I've had it in. The truck pretty much speaks for itself. This would make a wonderful
marketing tool for a large company to enjoy. I hold a clear title in hand.

Project Ugly Horse alive and kicking at Road & Track

Thu, 29 Aug 2013 19:29:00 EST

The hallways of the Autoblog campus are much quieter now that Zach Bowman has taken his prose, along with his welders, wrenches and hammers, over to the digital pages of Road & Track, but that doesn't mean our favorite project Mustang is gone forever. Project Ugly Horse is still coming along, and Zach has gifted us another update on his unfoxy Fox Body.
Last we saw of the Ugly Horse, Zach was strengthening up the '89 Mustang's chassis as he prepares to stuff the turbocharged, direct-injected EcoBoost engine of a Ford Focus ST under the hood. First things first, the old mill must go. Head on over to Road & Track to catch the latest chapter of Project Ugly Horse.

2014 Ford F-150 gets CNG option

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 00:01:00 EST

Ford is toiling away, installing heavy-duty engine components into select 3.7-liter V6s to allow them to run on compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquid petroleum gas (LPG) in addition to gasoline. That's nothing new, but now, Ford has announced that it will offer the 2014 F-150 with this engine configuration, bringing the Blue Oval's total number of CNG/LPG-friendly vehicles up to eight. The F-150 will be the only half-ton pickup on the market that can run on these gases.
Ford will charge $315 per vehicle to equip the optional engine, but the trucks won't be ready to run on the alternative fuels straight from the factory and must be upfitted with additional equipment. A Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier will install a separate fuel system for the compressed gases at a cost of $7,500 to $9,500, depending on fuel tank size. With the right-size tank, the F-150 equipped with the CNG/LPG-prepped engine can go 750 miles on one tank of gas, according to Ford, averaging 23 miles per gallon.
The practice of offering flex-fuel vehicles is gaining momentum as businesses take advantage of cheap gas. CNG can be bought for $2.11/gallon on average (per gasoline equivalent), and sometimes for as little as $1.00 in some parts of the US, Ford states. "With the money saved using CNG, customers could start to see payback on their investment in as little as 24 to 36 months," says Jon Coleman, Ford's fleet sustainability and technology manager. The automaker expects to sell a total of 15,000 CNG/LPG-prepped vehicles in the 2014 model year.

2014 Ford Transit Connect Taxi hopes to fare thee well

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 10:21:00 EST

New York City may have selected its taxi of tomorrow, but there are still plenty of municipalities across the US with citizens that depend on yellow livery cars to get them across town in a jiffy. That's why Ford is going ahead with this, the new Transit Connect Taxi.
Based on the 2014 Transit Connect, the TC Taxi boasts a number of features designed to make the compact van appeal to discerning taxi drivers and their fares, with the most notable upgrade being a standardized prep package to convert the 2.5-liter four to run on liquefied petroleum or compressed natural gas. The clean-burning fuel options will allow operators to save on fuel costs and cut down on pollution without sacrificing performance.
A lower load floor and a new twist-beam rear suspension are meant to improve the riding experience for passengers, while the longer 2014 Transit Connect sports extra cargo space as well. In addition to the CNG/LPG conversion, the Transit Connect Taxi can also be easily modified for wheelchair access. Drivers, meanwhile, will have access to optional goodies like Sync with MyFord Touch and a rear-view camera.
