1953 Ford F-100 Short Bed on 2040-cars
Deer Park, Texas, United States
Almost all the parts are there, even has the original spare tire mounted under the bed.
The rear end has been replaced with another Ford rear end, unknown year.
The Cab Floor is good, no rust holes that I can see.
The Bed Floor is Steel Grating, not Wood.
The frond end appears good all the parts are there and steers good.
The Brakes will need rebuilding.
It is not the original Tailgate it is a cover that is screwed shut and does not open.
The Hood opens and closes but needs work and adjusting.
The Running Boards are pitted but ok for a Rat Rod.
Doors open and close very good. They do need the rubber seal.
The Windows roll up and down. Side vent windows are Lexan one opens one does not.
The Windshield and Seal are New.
The fresh air vent opens and closes good.
I don't know if the Gas Tank leaks or not. Smells like it still has old Gas in it.
The Tires are New but aged and will need to be replaced, decent enough for transporting and moving around the shop.
It appears the Truck has never been taken apart. The under carriage has never been cleaned up. The Frame is solid.
I'm not sugar coating anything on this 60+ year old truck. Like I said it needs a total make over.
Selling as-is where-is no warranty expressed or implied.

It's called "F3T," and that stands for Ford Free-form Fabrication Technology. The process that The Blue Oval has developed means being able to sidestep the weeks-long process of tool-and-die making when engineers want to construct a new part, allowing them to fabricate a three-dimensional part from a two-dimensional sheet of metal in just hours.

While F3T is being developed it is limited to "low-volume prototyping or even low-volume niche vehicles," but the next step is to evaluate it for use in Ford's global manufacturing facilities. You can find out more about it in the video and the press release below.
At the New York Auto Show this year, Ford revealed a special-edition Mustang to honor the iconic pony car's 50th anniversary. Only 1,964 highly symbolic examples will be made, all of them fixed-roof coupes. But the Blue Oval automaker has just announced that it's also building a single 50 Years edition convertible that it will raffled off for charity.

The first production example of the new Mustang Convertible to roll off the line this fall, this one-off will pack many of the features on the 50 Years coupe, including its white paintjob, chrome trim, aluminum dashboard, two-tone upholstery, contrast stitching, special 19-inch wheels and special-edition badging throughout.
This unique cabrio will also be fitted with a special performance pack including Pirelli PZero rubber, Brembo brakes and a limited-slip differential to help get the 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque from the 5.0-liter V8 through the six-speed manual transmission and down to the road. It'll also feature a serial plaque with the number 0001 of 0001 and chairman Bill Ford's signature.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has revealed its annual list of Top Safety Picks, an award that highlights automobiles it says offer "superior crash protection." A new and still more significant award, the Top Safety Pick+ honor, is given to those vehicles that earn good ratings for occupant protection in four out of five areas of measure. And while some 117 vehicles were given the TSP seal of approval for 2013, just 13 passed muster for TSP+.
To be fair, IIHS only evaluated 29 vehicles with its new testing procedures for TSP+ (we'd expect that the number of qualified cars will rise substantially for 2014). Luxury and Near Luxury midsize cars were the first groups evaluated, followed by midsizers in the Moderately Priced Cars category - unsurprisingly, it's only midsize cars that you'll find among the class this year.
Only two luxury sedans made the list of 13 for 2013: the Acura TL and Volvo S60. The other 11 cars on the list included entries from domestic, Japanese and German car makers: Dodge Avenger, Chrysler 200, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord (sedan and coupe), Kia Optima (but not its close kin, the Hyundai Sonata, strangely), Nissan Altima, Subaru Legacy and Outback, Suzuki Kizashi and the Volkswagen Passat all made the grade.
