Hello I am selling my 1955 ford pickup truck. This is my dads truck. He is not very good with computers. He has had the car for about a year.


The car was restored 4 years ago. my dad wanted to change the color from a two tone green to a metallic blue. So it has a fresh new paintjob less than 4 months old. The flakes in the paint sparkle like crazy!

The interior was just replaced with new reclining bench seats, headliner, carpet and side door inserts. While they were doing this they lost my dads door handle for the interior which you could buy anywhere. 


The engine is a corvette 327 v8 four barrel carb, and center dump manifold with powerglide transmission. Was rebuilt 4 years ago by the previous owner. 30,000 after rebuild. Starts and runs great. Automatic transmission shifts smooth.

No rust anywhere. Solid truck.

Steering column tilt. The key is on the column now.

new brake lines. 

New American Racing wheels.

Truck was dropped 3 inches to get that hotrod look.

Tires have 75 percent tread left.

New exhaust system Sounds very mean. Due to the engine.

Power steering makes this car easy to drive.

disk brakes are very powerful.

Very fun to drive gets peoples attention. me and my dad have had many people stop by my garage asking if they could see it. It is a great conversation starter.

Reason for the low price is because My dad needs the money for my college.

Ford auctioning off F-35-themed 2015 Mustang for charity

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 18:01:00 EST

Ford's been a supporter of EAA AirVenture, a huge, annual air show held in Oshkosh, WI, for several years now, with one of its most notable contributions being a modified Ford Mustang, designed to look like one of America's great fighting aircraft. There was an SR-71 Mustang, based on the legendary spy plane, a Red Tails edition, which honored the ground-breaking Tuskegee Airmen of World War II, as well as Blue Angels and Thunderbird Mustangs, based on America's two great military aerial demonstration teams.
Each car is auctioned off, with all proceeds going to the EAA Young Eagles program, which introduces kids to the joy of flight. For the 2014 AirVenture, which runs from July 28 to August 3, the one-off pony car is based on the new-for-2015 Mustang, and America's latest fighting aircraft - the controversial F-35 Lightning II.
The unique Mustang sports titanium paint scheme, with both glossy and matte sections, as well as yellow-and-blue trim and decal elements inspired by CF-1, the first F-35 test plane. A carbon-fiber front splitter and rear diffuser add some visual eye candy, while the interior boasts a set of Recaro seats. Ford also opted to fit unique wheels and a brawnier rear spoiler, to tie everything together.

Chevy Silverado frame twist test a marketing victory versus Ford

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 20:01:00 EST

The pickup market is so competitive that all three major American makers are constantly trying to find a way to prove their product is the best. The new 2015 Ford F-150 is grabbing headlines at the moment by winning awards and posting segment best numbers. But in a new video, Chevrolet is taking aim squarely at the 2015 F-250 Super Duty in a battle of heavy-duty truck supremacy against the 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD... well, in a single metric anyway.
The big numbers from pickups often come down to payload, towing rating and fuel economy, but for this test, Chevy and Howie Long are challenging the torsional rigidity of the trucks' frames, specifically which one flexes less. Long plays the everyman here having the Chevy engineer explain what's going on in the tests. Unsurprisingly for a video on Chevy's official YouTube page, the 2500HD wins out by a good margin. The company also reports that similar results as shown here have been certified in third-party testing.
Check out the video to see the full test. While this might seem like a marketing win for Chevy, Ford isn't immune to it, either. In 2009, the Blue Oval uploaded a similar video comparing the flex under 225 pounds of weight from the bare frames of the F-150, Chevy Silverado, Dodge Ram (as it was still called at the time) and the Toyota Tundra. The results fell in the Blue Oval's favor, as you can see here.

Are you Ford's next Bullitt Mustang? [w/poll]

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 17:28:00 EST

Ford has a long history of offering special editions of its legendary Mustang. One of the most vaunted of those trim packages, though, has only been offered twice. The first time was in 2001, and then again in 2008. Yes, we're talking about the Bullitt.
Named for the infamous Dark Highland Green Mustang Fastback driven by Steve McQueen in the 1968 cop melodrama Bullitt, the car was famous for not just its pilot, but the high-speed chase it took part in during the movie. Now, we think we have images of the next Bullitt.
According to our spy photographers, the paint is a "dead-ringer" for the Dark Highland Green that has signified these special edition Mustangs. While we're inclined to agree, it's also worth pointing out that this shade looks very similar to one of the 2015's other new colors, Guard. We've yet to see one on the road (let alone in such dreary conditions), so it's tough to say for certain.
