1966 Ford F250 Crew Cab
This rare Ford F250 Crew Cab also known as a Six Pack back in the 60's came out of Iowa and was used by a company called Higley Construction. It has been highly altered since it showed up at our shop here in Tennessee. We started by converting the now fully boxed chassis to an independent front suspension and a triangulated 4 bar rear. Because of the length of the vehicle we also opted for a two piece drive-shaft to keep from sectioning the floor. The frame has been stepped up in the front and the rear and fully boxed. Also, a set of Firestone air bags were installed at each corner for ride quality. When it came time to pick an air management system to control the suspension we went with the full Accuair setup. This is a self leveling air management system that has direct control of each corner or three preset settings of your choice. Its as easy to program the settings to your liking as it is to set a preset on your radio. It has a 10 gallon air capacity so that you never have to wait on any air pressure, always plenty on demand. Everything has been painted except the exterior of the truck because we liked that it still wore its original paint. Under the hood and inside of the bed were sprayed Wimbledon white for a cleaner look and to give the next owner a jump on an original two tone paint style. The chassis has also been completely painted top to bottom. You can see these details better on the website under the custom projects section along with the rest of the work that was done. The truck rides on a staggered set of 20x8.5'' front and 22x9.5'' rear billet smoothies and Nitto 555 tires. The engine is a stock 302 roller motor with all the goodies and accessories attached to an AOD transmission and 9'' rear. Lokar lines and shifter were used along with an aluminum radiator and fan shroud with electric fans and a billet overflow. Cal custom valve covers, breathers and air cleaner were used to top it off and all of the plumbing was ran with AN fittings. All of the sheet metal work that was in need of repair has been completed and painted. We just cleaned up the interior a little so that the next person could personalize it to their taste. We started with recovering the dash and the seats and adding carpet front to back. The list goes on and on so feel free to come in and see this truck or feel free to give us a call at 615-220-9000 and ask for Brian. We will be happy to scrape the logos off the truck for the winning bidder if he or she chooses. We welcome any third party inspections if you're unable to come see the vehicle before auctions end. I have no idea what the value of this truck is hence the auction format. Please honor this and do not email or call for the reserve price. Bid to own, thanks.

To quote Harry Hogge (played by Robert Duvall) in Days of Thunder, "rubbin, son, is racin'." That can mean some unfortunate damage to high-end racing machinery, which may be repaired easily enough in stock car racing, but when it comes to vintage racing, the stakes can be that much higher. And yet incidents do occur, like at this weekend's Goodwood Revival.

Among the many competitors taking part in the retro racing event in England was none other than Rowan Atkinson, the actor perhaps best known for playing Mr. Bean. Driving a classic Ford Falcon Sprint in the Shelby Cup event, Atkinson (pictured above at the 2012 revival) reportedly crashed head-on into another car on track.
According to reports, the two cars up spun out. The driver in between managed to avoid a pile-up, but Atkinson couldn't steer clear and hit the obstructing vehicle. Fortunately Rowan walked away unscathed (and, we imagine, in a humorous manner), but while we don't know how extensive the damage was to the Falcon, it was enough to take it out of the race.
The 2015 Mustang is one of the most hotly anticipated vehicles of the moment, and Ford continues to leak out interesting little details about its newest pony car. The latest info doesn't have anything to do with its quarter-mile time or handling, but if any of that goes drastically wrong, the innovative new glovebox-mounted airbag may prevent passengers from knee injuries.

All variants of the 2015 Mustang get the active knee airbag as standard, and it's the first vehicle in Ford's lineup to receive the system. The setup is actually quite simple and ingenious. The glovebox is made from a plastic outer panel that is attached to the inner door. Sandwiched between them is this new injection-molded plastic bladder that folds flat when in use. If the passenger-side airbag deploys, the system springs into action to act as a cushion for your knees. Compared to a traditional knee airbag that has to fully inflate, this arrangement is 65 percent lighter and can use a 75 percent smaller inflator. It's also basically invisible when you look at the glovebox door.
Ford spokesperson Ed Saenz declined to tell Autoblog whether the system will appear in other vehicles in the Blue Oval's lineup but said, "We're considering other applications." Provided it's effective, the approach seems too simple not to make its way to other products. Scroll down to watch a video showing how the glovebox-mounted knee airbag works.
The Ford F-150 is one of the best selling vehicles on the planet. Considering that, one can imagine that when it comes time for a redesign, there are hardly any half measures. For its lucky thirteenth generation, Ford has gone all-in on the single most important vehicle in its portfolio, redesigning it from the ground up.
The big news is the F-150's new, lightweight, Atlas-inspired body. Ninety-three percent of that new body is made from a sort of aluminum alloy not unlike what the US military uses in its M2 Bradley fighting vehicles and Humvees, and it accounts for up to 70 percent of the F-150's 700-pound weight reduction. As a side benefit, the aluminum body should prove more resistant to dents and dings. Built Ford tough, indeed.
If you're wondering where the other 30 percent of that 700-pound weight loss went, 8.5 percent (60 pounds) came from the increased use of high-strength steel (up from 23 percent to 77 percent) in its ladder-box frame. Ford claims this steel is comparable to some of the heavy duty pickups used by its competitors, with a PSI rating of 70,000.
