This a hardy, yet in need of some TLC classic F-100 ford truck.  "She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid."  Unlike our hero, the modifications have been minimal and less evasive.  It has 390 cubic inch V8, mostly untouched original engine.  The headers and exhaust were replaced long ago.  It has an upgraded Mallery distributor, MSD ignition box and Super coil.  The transmission is a four speed manual with one heck of a stump pullin' creeper like, first gear.  She can pull, no doubt.  The four wheel drive is original..low/high....and yes you have to get out of the truck to engage the front hubs ;)
   The bed needs work, as does the rest of the body...which you can see in the pictures.  I have the panels to replace the bad, rusted ones between the wells.  ..she will need some other cosmetic attention to make her real pretty again, but she runs solid. The glass is also unharmed and original.
      I haven't had time to play with her for a couple of years now.  I'm sure a battery is needed to get things moving again, I just don't have the time or the resources to futz anymore.   
   I purchased the truck from a little old man and his son way back in September 1998.  It was basically used for hauling stuff to the dump, picking up wood chips and helping move people in and out of their residences.  Unfortunately the truck has sat more often than it has been used.  As of now, I have plum ran out of time to take of her properly.  
    Please feel free to ask questions.  I will do all I can to answer them.

Thank you very much for looking.

Introducing the 1965 Ford Mustang

Sat, 24 Aug 2013 18:58:00 EST

Put on your space suits and diving bell helmets, for it's time to step into a time capsule. The 50th anniversary of a historic model, like, say, the Porsche 911 this year, is certain to bring flights of nostalgia. This historical trip with the 1965 Mustang, though - preliminary hype for next year's anniversary, we know - is a swell museum exhibit for anyone who enjoys bygone days of the automobile.
Lee Iaccoca gave a speech to motoring journalists on April 1, 1964 at the New York World's Fair to introduce a sporty car for younger drivers. His opening line: "Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to one of the proudest moments of our lives." The company was so excited by what it had made that the Mustang was Ford's first "International Press Introduction," being introduced to some 2,000 journos around the world on the same day in the US and 11 European cities. Even through its difficult points, no one at the time could have known how well the Mustang would acquit that pride.
After the intro, the press drove Mustangs 750 miles from New York to Dearborn, MI, reading press kits that touted features like the "vertical, three-sectional taillights/turn signals," "170" six-cylinder engine with 101 horsepower and the available Cruise-O-Matic transmission.

Ford Australia pulls the ol' talking car prank

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 15:01:00 EST

Siri from Apple has proven that being able to talk to your technology doesn't always work perfectly. But what if it could eventually go far enough to give a personality to inanimate objects like our cars? Ford took just this path to comedic effect by playing a prank on many unsuspecting Australians, in a new commercial for its EcoSport compact crossover.
The Aussies seem very nonchalant about having a random parked car talk to them, and they seem surprisingly game when it asks them to get in, call a celebrity and tell a joke. (We're guessing there are some hilarious outtakes, too.) Scroll down to watch some folks from Down Under have a conversation with Ford's CUV.

NHTSA probing 2000-2003 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable models over throttle issue

Mon, 29 Oct 2012 11:01:00 EST

A potential issue with the speed control cable collar has got the 2003-20003 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable under the spotlight of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. If the collar breaks it can cause the throttle to be stuck open.
The issue is limited to vehicles with the 3.0-liter V6 Duratec. There are just 50 complaints so far out of 310,000 cars, but the NHTSA has begun an investigation into whether a recall should be issued.
