for sale is my 1979 ford f-100. now to answer the #1 question of the day...why am I starting it for so little?... The truck was purchased for work, I am a carpenter, and my former partner, whom the truck was purchased for, has moved back out West, to help his mother who is rapidly losing her vision. Before leaving he (who claimed to be a good mechanic) removed the engine, and it was rebuilt. After words he started putting the engine compartment back together, but is still apart... radiator hoses, exhaust system,  power steering pump, and probably more. I say probably more, because once again I am a carpenter, and not a mechanic. Before he completed the work on the truck, the plan was to finish the work on the truck, and then for him to leave. I was going to give the truck to him, but we had a falling out, and he left our partnership under bad terms, and the truck incomplete. Now after sitting around for a little over 6 months, I do not really know what to do with it. I have already spent more money on it than I had planned, and refuse to spend another dime on it! I have a great truck, and every time I look at this one, it just brings up bad memories. I can only compare this feeling, to having an ex-girlfriend as a roommate! I know very little about these trucks, only what I have been told. I do know these things,...The 351 is what is known as a modified, manual brakes(no power assist),  but has front disc brakes. Was told the frame is in good shape...apparently when this model has frame issues the cab and the bed meet at the top of the bed. As you can see from the side picture, this truck has no apparent issues here. Was also told that the body is very "clean" (although in need of new paint). The bed has one place on the passenger side forward of back tire, about the size of a car tag. The tailgate has a place about the size of a soda can, on the lower left side. The truck has always been in the South, and has very little surface rust, which I find surprising, due to the paint condition. Extras...lots of extras!! In the back of the truck there are two doors left and right, an extra dash panel, two drive shafts, a radiator (the one in the engine compartment is in place), four wheels (3 of which with tires, of unknown condition). There are exhaust parts, and the front bumper, but I am pretty sure they are the ones that came off, thus not making them extra, just there. the cap is included, as I have no obvious use for it. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask, I will answer to the best of my ability... My feedback score is a perfect 100%, and I do not want to change that!! If the truck were actually in driving condition, I would be starting the bid at a much higher price, so my loss, your gain. I am a big fan of old cars, and hate to see something just sit around and go downhill, so I hope someone who is mechanically inclined will give it a good new home! Thanks for checking out my auction!

Ford Fiesta ST customs get wild at SEMA

Tue, 05 Nov 2013 19:21:00 EST

The massive 57-car SEMA showcase by Ford ranges from obvious aftermarket-friendly models like the Mustang, to the not so obvious ones, like the Transit Connect and cute-as-an-explosive-button Fiesta ST. Ford plucked several Fiesta STs for SEMA duty, and we were on the show floor today to get a closer look at some of them.
First up is the striking COBB Tuning and Tanner Foust Racing Fiesta ST (above) finished in a black-and-gray digital camouflage, much like that used in the military, and is meant to raise awareness for the Pat Tillman Foundation. COBB also fitted a three-inch exhaust and a cold-air intake. A new shift knob, carbon-fiber hood and a Kicker stereo round out the mix of upgrades.
MRT got its hands on a Fiesta ST and created a car inspired by Forza Motorsport 5 (below, left). Featuring a two-tone paint job and more performance upgrades than you can shake a stick at, this Fiesta ST is one of the cooler compacts at Ford's stand. A high-performance exhaust system, along with a complimentary COBB induction system, allows the ST to breathe better, while an H&R coil over suspension and Steeda brakes help it stop and turn better than stock.

Entry-level F-150 now offers SuperCrew, Sport Package

Thu, 29 Aug 2013 14:29:00 EST

Ford has made a few notable tweaks to the lower end of its F-150 lineup, giving customers a more affordable version of the four-door SuperCrew body style. The popular SuperCrew could previously only be had on XLT models and above, but Ford has announced that 2014 F-150s with the base STX trim can get the more versatile body.
The STX SuperCrew brings the price of a four-door F-150 down from $34,525 to $33,145. Like the XLT SuperCrew, the STX will be available with the choice of a 5.5- or 6.5-foot bed, while a 5.0-liter V8 can replace the base 3.7-liter V6 for $4,425. Ford has not released pricing on the different bed lengths yet, but opting for the 6.5-foot bed on the XLT raises the price $1,240 and forces buyers into the 5.0-liter V8. We'd expect a similar arrangement on the STX.
The other big news for fans of affordable pickups is the addition of an STX Sport Package on the base-level truck. It adds 20-inch wheels, black exterior accents, black-and-gray cloth seats and decals on the truck's box. The Sport Package is available on all three of the STX's body styles, with Ford listing the price as $980 with current discounts.

Ford Transit gets outfitted for prison duty

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 18:31:00 EST

Between the Taurus-based Police Interceptor, the Explorer-based Police Interceptor Utility and the F-150 and Expedition special service vehicles, Ford has no lack of offerings for law enforcement. And now it has one more in the form of the new Transit PTV.
Based on the fullsize Transit van, the Prisoner Transport Vehicle can move as many as 12 prisoners in three separate compartments between detention facilities. Created in collaboration with Pennsylvania-based Havis Prisoner Transport Solutions and with input from Ford's Police Advisory Board, the Transit PTV takes advantage of the Transit's considerable configuration options that include three roof heights, two wheelbases, three lengths and four body-styles - not to mention engine options that include the flex-fuel 3.7-liter V6, 3.5-liter EcoBoost and 3.2-liter Power Stroke diesel.
"Transit PTV is the latest example of Ford's deep commitment to helping provide law enforcement agencies with capable vehicles. This concept proves Transit is upfit-ready and designed to Built Ford Tough standards," said Jonathan Honeycutt, Ford police marketing manager. "Many Police Advisory Board members have had the chance to drive this vehicle and they are excited about it. This new vehicle is tough, smart and efficient - ideal for the needs of law enforcement agencies."
