Up for auction is my 68 Ford F-100 Ranger short bed. The truck has a good running 360 V-8 with an automatic transmission and factory air conditioning!  This is a rock solid truck with absolutely no rot with the exception of some light surface rust on the bed and hood. The truck has spent its whole life in the dry Arizona desert. The dash is cracked in pieces and the door pulls were cracked as well. The body is super solid with a couple dents and dings as you can see in the pics. This truck is almost totally complete except for some trim pieces and the rear bumper. Somebody also at some point took the A/C compressor off the truck. This is an awesome original paint two owner short bed that runs great and has the best set of floors I've seen in a long time. I took the worn out carpet out to show how good the floors are. I kept a small piece of the carpet so you can color match it later. This is a great short bed that would be perfect to fully restore or drive it as is right now! The reserve is set low so BID TO WIN!! This truck will be sold as is where is with no warranty implied. I also reserve the right to end this auction early as the truck is for sale locally.

Ford recalls 434k vehicles for several unrelated issues

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 15:56:00 EST

It seems that the hard winter in much of the country has been as rough on some Fords as it has on many people. The Blue Oval is recalling roughly 434,000 vehicles in two separate recalls, and one of them partially caused by the salt used to melt the snow on roads.
The first recall covers 385,750 2001-2004 Escape models in the Midwest, Northeast and Canada because a subframe could rust and eventually fail. This is partially due to the road salt used in those areas, and about 349,000 of the affected vehicles are in the US. To remedy the problem, dealers are installing a reinforcement cross brace on the frame to strengthen them. There has been one crash caused by the failure but no injuries. According to The Detroit News, this is not the first rust-related recall for Ford. It estimates the company has repaired over two million vehicles since 2010 for problems on vehicles related to the iron oxide, including the rear wheel wells of the Freestar minivan.
The second recall covers 48,950 2013-2014 Ford Fusion, Escape, C-MAX and Lincoln MKZ models because welds in their seatbacks don't meet National Highway Traffic Safety Administration standards. The fault affects the front seats, and the sub-standard welds joining the setback to the recliner could increase the chance on injury. There have been no reported injuries or accidents caused by the problem, but there are 42,972 affected vehicles in the US and 4,744 in Canada.

Ford Explorer, Expedition next to go aluminum?

Sun, 13 Apr 2014 15:00:00 EST

Ford made some serious waves when it unveiled the latest F-150. Instead of making its bodywork out of steel, like just about every other truck on the market, Ford went with aluminum. And you can bet the F-150 won't be the last Ford model to go with the lightweight alloy construction, either.
Our compatriots at Edmunds report that Dearborn is considering replacing two of its most popular SUVs with aluminum versions. One candidate is the Expedition, which would make sense considering that the current model (like the two preceding generations and the fullsize Bronco before it) is based on the F-150's underpinnings. Another is the Explorer, which was traditionally based on the Ranger pickup but went with a car-like unibody chassis in its current iteration. If the Explorer does go the way of aluminum, don't expect it to be a part of its very next update, which is likely due too soon for such major changes.
It would stand to reason that, if the Expedition were to go aluminum, so would the next-generation Lincoln Navigator. Ditto the MKT together with the Explorer. But those aren't likely to be the only models in contention for aluminum construction. Like any other automaker, Ford is under pressure to steadily reduce its carbon emissions and improve its fuel economy figures, prompting it to look at a whole range of measures - including more efficient engines, lower rolling-resistance tires, active aerodynamics and lightweight construction. Expect aluminum to play a big part in that equation moving forward.
