1977 Ford F100 Custom Explorer 2wd 302 Auto Fact A/c 73k Orig Miles 1976 1978 79 on 2040-cars
has some issues with pinstriping on hood that needs redoing and some parking lot scratches here and there
Auburn, Maine, United States
|Beautiful original 1977 F100 Custom Explorer with like new orig interior you have to see to believe!!! Also undercarriage is like off the lot in 1977 with only very end of dual exhaust pipes showing rust through due to chrome exhaust tips being on it when I got it that held moisture between them and pipes causing some rust through.Exterior has some issues with pinstriping on hood that needs redoing and some parking lot scratches here and there,but zero rust,rot,or sheet metal repair anywhere...this truck is solid as a rock.There is also a dent above rear passenger side tail-light that is the exteriors worst issue keeping it from receiving trophies at car shows.Truck has factory a/c that needs recharging and new belt,but did blow air before I took belt off so all power would transfer to motor and not needlessly turn a/c pulley.Truck also features orig AM/FM stereo,orig FORD hubcaps,and loud air horns mounted under hood run by compressor and air tank along with aux. air hose to inflate other things as needed(orig horn still operates as well). I also recently put on a new carb that still needs tuning,but starts,idles,and runs good,but under power does hesitate some at slow speed,but does come out of it as it increases in speed.Honestly,I'm horrible at adjusting carbs as well as setting timing so someone that can do that or send to a garage to do it right will have a great running truck!!! Currently the truck is running off a 22 gallon fuel cell mounted in bed of truck due to both orig gas tanks needing a thorough draining and cleaning or possible replacement due to possible rusting from inside out or just crappy old gas varnishing inside tanks(that's what messed up my orig carb). Also,drivers side inner door panel is a bit loose on bottom due to a few clips falling out so I'll try and get that fixed before new owner takes delivery of it,but new clips are easily obtained as well as most new parts for these old Fords through LMC Ford Parts.
Truck is advertised locally so if it's sold or traded locally the ad will be taken down promptly! If truck is won by auction on here,winner is solely responsible for all shipping charges or can be picked up locally.I can hold truck as long as needed as long as it's paid for in full and you explain situation before final winning bid!!

You might not be interested in owning a subcompact (B-segment) hatchback for $20,000. Let's be clear from the get go here: there are any number of reasonable arguments for staying away from the highest-content versions of these small cars. Ford's player in the B-segment arena is the newly updated 2014 Fiesta, and the Titanium trim represents the most luxurious instantiation of the model. We recently were loaned a Fiesta Titanium for a week, whose final sticker price hit $20,390, with navigation being the only standalone option added to the bottom line. By way of comparison, the most basic version of the all new, one-segment-up Mazda3 hatchback costs $19,740 with delivery and destination accounted for, and no options added on.

Hold on to that thought for a moment, we'll get back to it.
Ford is doing well. It can't make enough examples of its new Fusion, it can barely make enough of the aging F-150, it's getting good brand rankings, people like its turnaround story, it's selling oodles of product and its quarterly profit numbers end in the word "billion." As other high-flying examples have demonstrated over the past few years, though, big numbers can come with problems that aren't exactly small.

Automotive News has published a good "nutshell" report of Ford's progress and problems. The Dearborn automaker's optimistic "general label rule" determination of gas mileage for the C-Max Hybrid has led to lawsuits, hybrid software updates, a downward revision of C-Max fuel economy and millions in rebates. AN notes the C-Max was the "worst-scoring model in this year's J.D. Power Initial Quality Study," but Ford will probably be happy that it managed not to be mentioned further in the study's results after last year's mediocre showing. Its MyTouch and SYNC systems, the bugbears sabotaging Ford's J.D. Power results, have also led to lawsuits, software updates, more software updates and a center console rethink. On top of that, the 1.6-liter EcoBoost in the 2013 Ford Escape that Ford called a "hero" was soon catching fire for three different reasons. And let's not even get into the troubled launch of the Lincoln MKZ.
The Automotive News piece notes that industry observers have been surprised at Ford's stumbles because everything has been looking so good. Nevertheless, there is still the issue of those billions in profits - the company is doing plenty of things, plural, right. Ford says it is tackling its problems, hiring engineers and instituting new quality control processes as part of its effort to find solutions. The test will be to see if in a year from now we begin the discussion of these issues with "Remember when Ford...", or "Problems continue at The Blue Oval."
We just recently saw our first spy shots of the next-gen hi-po Ford Mustang slated to replace the Shelby GT500, but now we're getting our first look - and listen - of prototypes captured on video. Mustang6g.com has the video (along with some different spy shots), which show that, if nothing else, SVT knows how to tune an exhaust system. The :50 mark is a good example of this, but fast-forward to around 2:00 where the driver revs the engine and really gets on the throttle hard taking off from a stop.
There's still no definitive evidence that the next-gen SVT Mustang - said to be called GT350 - will be naturally aspirated, but it sounds just as menacing as the current Shelby GT500. While the video posted below exhibits the sort of quality that is to be expected from someone driving while trying to film someone who is attempting to elude being filmed, it's still exciting to see and hear this new Mustang in motion.
