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.

Oprah Winfrey loves giving away cars. Not only has she given Pontiac G6 sedans and Volkswagen Beetle retro-mobiles to everyone in the audience of her past show, but the other night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! she gave another car away to one lucky audience member, while yelling her now-famous line: "You get a car!"

Although the acting of Oprah and Jimmy Kimmel was obviously staged for this giveaway, the reaction from the woman in the audience was genuine shock as she found out that she had just won a new Ford Fusion Energi. Congrats!
Not to take away from what Oprah and Jimmy pulled off, but our cynical sides have to wonder if there isn't more than just a little coincidence that this giveaway took place on the same day that Ford announced a fuel economy reduction for the C-Max hybrid. You be the judge... Scroll down to watch the short clip from the episode.
Solid axle? What solid axle?

I was fully prepared to embark on a seven-day journey down a rabbit hole of broken bolts, internet hearsay and consternation.
This should not have gone this easily. Having a long and checkered history of simple projects punctuated by much wailing and gnashing of knuckles, I was fully prepared to embark on a seven-day journey down a rabbit hole of broken bolts, internet hearsay and consternation when I finally decided to lay hands on the '89 Mustang with the goal of relieving the car of its stock rear axle. Instead, it took less than a full morning's worth of work to carve the old 7.5-inch solid axle from its moorings and mock up something, well, different.
There is no doubt that Ford has had its hands full fielding complaints with its MyFord Touch and MyLincoln Touch systems these days, but looking to keep its customers happy, Ford is once again upgrading its infotainment systems and extending the warranties. Despite having just sent out updates for its systems back in March, Automotive News says that customers are still complaining about the speed and ease of use.
Vehicles with MyFord Touch will now get a five-year, unlimited-mile warranty, while the MyLincoln Touch will have a six-year, unlimited-mile warranty. Previously, the systems were covered under basic warranties (three-year, 36,000-mile for Ford and four-year, 60,000-miles for Lincoln).
What is being referred to as "version 3.5" for the MyFord Touch and MyLincoln Touch systems will be mailed out (or downloaded) next month for owners of cars without navigation and in January for cars with nav. Owners of hybrids, plug-ins and electric vehicles will get the update sometime in the first quarter of next year.
