I have for sale my 1953 f100 short bed project truck. Its an extremely solid and straight truck! I painted the frame with ppg single stage with hardner chassis black. I sanded all the body panels and primed the fenders, hood and cab of the truck and blocked it. There's no rust at all on the truck. the roughest part of the truck is the bed there's some small dings here and there on the bed of it. I painted the truck twilight black metallic from hot rod flatz. the interior and the grille of the truck is two toned with diamont platinum grey metallic base and diamont clear. the inner fender panels, the floor pan inside and out have been undercoated along with underside of hood. im selling as a rolling chassis. the bed i've put brand new braces and bolts stained and cleared both sides of plywood board, brand new factory style tailgate. I have brand new bed extensions front and rear that have not been put on the truck but will go with it. all parts were bought through mid fifties ford company. ive got brand new black carpet that goes with the truck as well. Its got brand new set of vision legend 18x9.5 wheels with a set of Dunlop tires. the wheels are 5x5 bolt pattern because that's the only style of rim I could find that was an 18 inch so its got 4 wheel billet adapters. Ive got a rack and pinion I'Il send with the truck as well. I have the factory radiator that goes with the truck as well. 4 brand new wheel cylinders go with the truck. ive got the drivers side window but all the glass and both wing windows is needing replaced. only reason im selling this truck is because ive got to many projects and don't have the time to finish this one. this truck is all factory stuff except for wheels tailgate and the bed rails. Everything for the truck ive got is all pictured. This truck is a project still. Its just a rolling chassis no motor or transmission. I had planned on putting a fuel injected sbc with overdrive trans but like I said just have way to many projects going on at once and have to let this one go. The truck will go with a bill of sale only. ive got a lot more pics and can get more just let me know what you would like to see.If you have any questions feel free to contact me at 6205211447. Thanks Nate
Judging by the destruction the Oklahoma City area experienced earlier this week, residents are going to need a lot of help in coming months. Fortunately, a number of automakers - including General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Volkswagen, Honda and Toyota - have stepped up to donate money, supplies and vehicles to aid in the recovery and rebuilding processes.
Here's a quick rundown of which automakers have pitched in and what each contributed so far:
Ford Motor Company has donating $250,000 and a Transit Connect to the American Red Cross, and it will match all other donations made to the Red Cross (up to $250,000) using a special URL tied to the latter's website (link here). Additionally, its local Oklahoma dealers have thrown in an extra $150,000 for the United Way and the automaker will be offering an extra $500 toward the purchase of a new Ford vehicle.
Okay, okay, okay, so I was just a smidge wrong. Those that read my review of the Ford Fiesta with the new 1.0-liter, EcoBoost engine will know that while I really enjoyed the torquey little three-cylinder, I was concerned that Ford's decision to force 1.0-liter owners into a manual transmission, steel wheels and one trim level might hurt sales of the new engine. I was also concerned that the promised 45-mile-per-gallon highway rating wouldn't be enough to tempt buyers into trying an engine that's so far outside of what the general public is use to. My concerns, though, seem to have been for naught.
While not doing a booming business on the triple-equipped Fiesta, Ford is seeing a take rate of four to eight percent per month in the engine's first few months on sale. Now, four to eight percent might not sound like a lot - if, like last year, the Fiesta sells around 71,000 units, there'd be barely 5,600 1.0-liter models on the road. It is also small potatoes relative to the take rate on EcoBoost-equipped vehicles across the Ford range, which US sales analyst Erich Merkle estimates to be roughly 35 to 40 percent of retail sales. Still, according to The Detroit News, the 1.0-liter is getting adopted at roughly the same rate as the sparkling Fiesta ST, which should be a solid indication of just how well this little engine is doing.
The 1.0-liter's success "really speaks volumes, not just to what we're doing with the Fiesta, but with EcoBoost in general," Merkle told Autoblog.
He may be a few months late to the party, but in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang, Jay Leno has delivered a short video in which he runs down which of the Blue Oval's pony cars from the past 50 years are his favorites.
The list is pretty darn similar to our own, with some of the big names from the Mustang's half century making an appearance, while there are three or four cars here that we think you'll be pretty surprised by.
Take a look below for this short video from Jay Leno's Garage.
