Prescott Valley, Arizona, United States

1973 F-100 Ranger 4 wheel drive truck. Originally purchased in Berkley CA. has spent most of its life in AZ. I bought this truck with the intent of returning it to a nice driver since I was familiar with its past. I knew one of its previous owners. I just have too many trucks and projects so its got to go. The original engine was a 360. Previous owner claims to have put a 390 crank and rods in it approx. 35,000 miles ago. I cannot verify this and have no idea what other work may have been done at that time. The 2bbl intake was changed to iron 4bbl intake. I recently put an Edelbrock carb on it that was rebuilt about a year ago and used on one of my Chevys. It has been jetted for this elevation and may retuning else where. It has an automatic transmission that shifts well. NP 205 transfer case that shifts well also. High pinion Dana 44 front axle with power drum brakes and power steering. Rear is a 9" with Nodular third member and Trac Loc. Ratio is 3:50. I just installed good used set of chrome spoke wheels and 33" tires. I believe the camper shell and extra fuel tank were dealer installed items when purchased new. Truck also has fact A/C which actually works. I think it needs charged some, its not real cold. A Crane Fireball electronic ignition was also installed by previous owner. Since my purchase I have replaced the brake master cyl. ign. switch carburetor and tires and wheels. All glass is good. Body is mostly straight except where pictured. Body is completely rust free as far as I can tell. No rust found. Original paint is poor from sitting under a tree. Inside of the bed is exceptional for an old pickup with only a few dents and surface rust. Interior is fair. Drivers side of the seat is damaged. Dash pad has some cracks but has a cover on it. Door panels aren't too bad but has a few screws hold them on instead of clips. All gauges seem to work except for oil pressure but an after market gauge has been installed. Engine runs well and has decent power. I haven't noticed any smoke. Runs cool, 60-80psi oil pressure. Great restoration or good driver. I believe the 88779 miles to be correct and original but cannot verify that. Note: I have the missing windshield trim and is included.

Ford S-Max Concept previews new look, technology for Euro seven-seater

Wed, 28 Aug 2013

Ford unveiled today the S-Max Concept, which comes with a new, sleek look and loaded with innovative technology, such as a heart-rate monitoring seat. But if you're heart is set on a minivan sports activity vehicle (SAV) and you live in the States, don't wait for this one - it's a Europe-only product, and we don't expect that to change when the next-gen S-Max is released.
The styling follows Ford's global design language, looking a bit like an overgrown Focus hatchback with the company's signature grille, wraparound headlamps, steeply raked windshield and curved roof line. Ford also implemented details to make the S-Max look longer and faster, such as a feature line on each side of the vehicle and muscular-looking fenders. The engine isn't Ford's most powerful, but the new 1.5-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine should be potent enough with turbocharging and other efficiency related technologies.
Ford says the new interior, which seats up to seven people, features high-quality materials and fine detailing, such as an "ultra-soft" leather wrap for the instrument panel and leather and carbon-fiber details on the seats. Ford's Sync connectivity system with MyFord Touch makes the car a wireless hotspot, and there's a tablet docking station for second-row occupants.

George W. Bush's 2009 Ford F-150 fizzles with $300,000 bid at Barrett-Jackson [UPDATE: w/video]

Sun, 20 Jan 2013

Despite some truly impassioned pleading from Jay Leno himself - including calling on Arizona's notoriously Republican-rich voters to beat the $600,000 level set the last time Leno sold a vehicle for this particular charity... in California - bidding for George Bush's 2009 Ford F-150 pickup truck stalled at $300,000.
All proceeds will be sent to the Fisher House Foundation, so at least it's $300K going to a good cause. Feel free to check out the live image gallery above, which includes shots showing Leno's skills helming the auction, and read through the official auction description below.
*UPDATE: Video of the auction and Leno's prods to the crowd for more money can now be seen below.

Watch this Ford F-150 SVT Raptor fly like an eagle [UPDATE]

Mon, 04 Feb 2013

The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is a very capable truck right out of the box, but "capable" has never translated into "invincible." Just ask the owner of the machine in this video. In it, the driver gets frisky with an aggressive jump with plenty of speed on his hands. The result is enough air to make Vaughn Gittin Jr. blush. As always, it's not the launch that's painful, but the re-entry. Gravity eventually asserts its dominance over the $43,630 pickup in a big way, and when it comes crashing down, it does so with a vengeance.
The impact was hard enough to set off both the alarm and multiple airbags inside the cabin. It's unclear if anyone was injured in the stunt, but we certainly wouldn't be surprised to hear that was the case. You can check out the stunt in the video below, and remember, when in doubt, back out of the throttle. Be warned, there may be some explicit/NSFW language in the clip.
UPDATE: Second video added with an even better look at the jump added below.
