For sale is a very nicely restored 1955 Ford F-100 1/2 T stepside shortbox pickup.

The truck starts right up, runs and drives well with good brakes.  This truck is pretty

fast with its rebuilt original 272 bored .30 over.  Rebuilt by the previous owner.  Later model 4-speed put in by previous owner also.  Shifts well.  The engine and exhaust sound strong.  Dual exhaust.  Power steering and brakes.  The dual exhaust has a good healthy rumble sound.  The hood of the truck is a forward tilt design that allows great access and uniqueness.  This '55 F-100 rides on near new Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 radial tires and very nice American Racing rims that really set the look off.  The body of this one is in excellent shape and the glass and stainless is nice too.  The underside is very solid as seen in the photos.  The bed is steel with a rubber mat and a snap-on bed cover is very convenient when hauling your "stuff".

The interior is almost new and looks great.  The bucket seats are very comfortable and are very nice.  The headliner and doors panels are nice.  Cool wood steering wheel.  The added-on guages work, but the speedo does not.  One very great feature on the F-100 is the added A/C which blows cold.  The wipers are working.  Horn works.  Turn signals, taillights and headlights work.  Has very good carpet and FORD floormats.  The truck also has seatbelts for both seats.

This is a really cool 1955 Ford pickup cruiser that can be enjoyed right now.  Not that many of these '55 Ford 1/2 T pickups left, let alone in excellent condition.  This one gets a lot of looks and appreciative waves as it cruises threw town.

Please feel free to ask questions.  Sold is as-is condition.  Personal inspection is encouraged.

Ford Mustang 50th anniversary edition brings in $170k

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 14:15:00 EST

Just the other day, we reported on the first Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat selling for a whopping $825,000 at auction. But impressive as that sum was, the Challenger wasn't the only sought-after modern muscle car to cross the Barrett-Jackson auction block in Las Vegas this past weekend. So did this rare Ford Mustang.
The last of 1,964 special-edition 50 Years Limited Edition pony cars sold for a princely $170,000, with proceeds benefiting the Edith and Benson Ford Heart & Vascular Institute, a branch of the Henry Ford Health System.
The pony car in question is based on the 2015 Ford Mustang GT and upgrades with a performance package and nearly every option on the book, along with a unique appearance package to set it apart in celebration of the Mustang's 50th anniversary. It's available in two exclusive shades - Wimbledon white or Kona blue - with either a manual or automatic transmission. Only 1,964 highly symbolic examples were to be built, and this was the last of them.

First retail 2015 Ford Mustang headed to Barrett-Jackson

Fri, 20 Dec 2013 11:15:00 EST

Want to be the very first person to own a 2015 Ford Mustang GT? Here's what you'll need to do: be in Scottsdale, AZ on January 18 for the Barrett-Jackson auction and bring a very big checkbook. Having a passion for charity isn't a bad idea either.
Yes, the first 2015 Mustang to be sold to the public will be crossing the block at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, with proceeds from the auction going to JDRF, the charity formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
"Ford Mustangs have always been among the most popular collector cars at Barrett-Jackson Collector Car events," said the president of Barrett-Jackson, Steve Davis. "While every collector wishes they had snapped up the first Mustang sold in 1964, this is an opportunity to realize that dream in a different way."

How new car shortages may impact your buying experience

Wed, 04 Sep 2013 14:30:00 EST

If you want further proof that the auto industry is bouncing back, look no further than the empty lots and forecourts of your local dealership. According to a story by The Wall Street Journal, continued high demand for mainstream cars is overtaxing automakers' ability to produce enough models. Several dealers interviewed for the story are reporting two-week supplies as opposed to the typical two-month allocations.
With sales expected to hit 1.4 million units when August numbers arrive shortly and incentive spending down to its lowest amount since January, these limited supplies are pushing prices even higher. For example, according to the WSJ, the average price of a Ford Fusion is up past $26,000. Unfortunately, it's difficult for manufacturers to increase production quickly. If it invests in its facilities, as many manufacturers have done, it risks wasting cash if growth suddenly slows. At the same time, the momentum gained over the past several years could be short lived if vehicle supplies continue to dwindle. "Manufacturers are in a precarious situation," notes Karl Brauer, a senior director at Kelley Blue Book.
Low interest rates and a wealth of desirable features are also allowing customers to purchase more expensive vehicles while justifying their higher overall price tags, a situation that is compounding supply shortages. Even now, during the annual end-of-summer clearance season, deals on new vehicles are remarkably difficult to come by. According to the report, the Toyota Corolla is in a self-inflicted state of shortage, as Toyota clears out inventory in anticipation of the new 2014 generation arriving in dealers. Ford's supplies should rebound as Fusion production comes on line at its Flat Rock, Michigan factory. The Chevrolet Impala, Honda Odyssey, Civic, and Accord and Subaru Forester are also facing shortages.
