Carroll, Iowa, United States

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.

This unique '64 Mustang was Edsel Ford II's first car

Thu, 02 Jan 2014 19:40:00 EST

You probably had the same dream when you were a teenager. Your sixteenth birthday is coming up, or Christmas, or maybe both, and all you want is a muscle car to call your own. That dream has come true for some, and one of them was none other than Edsel Ford II.
Henry Ford's great grandson turned 16 on December 27, 1964 - two days after Christmas and eight months after the original Mustang went on sale. And that's just what was waiting for him in the driveway, courtesy of his father (and reigning chief executive) Henry Ford II.
The specially-prepared pony car had a pearlescent cream paintjob with narrow blue racing stripes, functional hood scoop, chrome trim, Euro-spec fender-mounted mirrors, a blue leather and aluminum interior, a monogrammed fuel cap... and a 289-cubic-inch V8 under the hood.

Ford Police Interceptors win acceleration war against Dodge, Chevy

Thu, 17 Oct 2013 00:01:00 EST

Just last month, Ford announced its first-ever non-pursuit-rated version of the Police Interceptor sedan for agencies looking to maximize fuel economy, but that doesn't mean that Ford is giving up on chasing down the bad guys. While the Dodge Charger can lay claim to the fastest lap time at the Grattan Raceway test facility held by the Michigan State Police, the results are now in for the Police Vehicle Evaluation acceleration tests. And Ford's Police Interceptor duo (sedan and utility) came out on top.
In the acceleration tests, Ford says that the Taurus-based PI Sedan with the newly available 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 was the quickest among prospective police cars in both 0-60 and 0-100 mile per hour times. The sedan posted a 0-60 time of 5.66 seconds with all-wheel drive and 5.71 seconds with front-wheel drive, besting V8-powered competitors like the Chevy Caprice and Dodge Charger by more than 0.3 seconds. These rivals close the gap on the AWD sedan in the 0-100 test with the Ford taking 13.5 seconds compared to the Chevy's time of 14.35 and the Dodge's time of 14.7.
As for utility vehicles, the Explorer-based PI Utility, which accounts for 60 percent of Ford's police vehicle sales, essentially went head-to-head with the V8-powered Chevy Tahoe with similar results. Equipped with the new EcoBoost engine option, this big SUV hit 60 mph in just 6.28 seconds and 100 mph in 15.51 seconds compared to times of 8.22 seconds and 21.95 seconds, respectively, for the Tahoe. Other important tests in the PVE include braking and top speed, but while no automakers have stepped up to boast about their numbers in either of these categories, Ford's images show that the V8 Caprice had the highest top speed of the cars at 155 mph while the Tahoe's 139-mph speed made it the fastest utility vehicle.

Ford celebrates 1 millionth Mustang built at Flat Rock

Thu, 18 Apr 2013 10:45:00 EST

Yesterday, the Ford Mustang turned 49 years old, and Ford didn't miss the opportunity to celebrate the one millionth version of the Mustang rolling off the assembly line at the Flat Rock Assembly plant. Production of the Mustang at Flat Rock coincided with the fifth-generation design launching in 2004, and the one millionth car was the car shown above, a 2014 GT convertible painted in Ruby Red.
In total, Ford has sold more than 8.5 million Mustangs since the original car went on sale, but some of the key milestones over the car's nine years at Flat Rock include the Shelby GT-H, Bullitt, Boss 302 and, of course, the 662-horsepower Shelby GT500. Scroll down for a press release celebrating Flat Rock's milestone Mustang.
