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 bringing production F-150 to Detroit with Atlas styling and Alcoa blast shields

Fri, 27 Dec 2013 16:30:00 EST

According to a report in Bloomberg, the 2015 Ford F-150 will indeed be showing up at the Detroit Auto Show next month. It will bring attitude with it, not only in the form of sheetmetal inspired by the Atlas concept (pictured) that appeared at the 2013 Detroit show but also in the Alcoa military blast shields among the display being used to showcase the ruggedness of aluminum.
There's been a lot of talk about the F-150 switching to aluminum body panels (although maintaining a steel frame), and for good reason. The lightweight body is expected to shed more than 700 pounds and greatly increase its highway mileage, but production-line issues and possible delays have been a major focus of attention concerning the best-selling vehicle in America for 32 years, meaning Ford has to get it right. F-150 is responsible for a massive portion of the company's global profits and it will come in a year when company profits are already predicted to decline because of new car launches.
When it comes to dings, the Bloomberg story says Ford wants Alcoa to supply some of the military-grade aluminum it uses for blast shields on battlefield vehicles to help it talk up the toughness of aluminum. Reading commentary on the many stories about the F-150 reveals there are many more little questions about the aluminum overhaul, like "How much will it cost to repair and insure?" and "How will companies hang their magnetic signs?" Answers should start coming in a couple of weeks.

Watch how Ford torture-tested the 2015 F-150

Wed, 09 Apr 2014 19:31:00 EST

The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling truck in the United States for the past 37 years, and the best-selling vehicle outright for the past 32. That's quite a legacy, and thus, it's no surprise that Ford worked super-duper-extra hard on creating the all-new, aluminum-bodied 2015 F-150 that debuted at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year.
During an event at the company's headquarters in Dearborn, MI this week, we were able to see all of the ways that Ford endurance tests, not just the new F-150, but all of its vehicles. From examining things like light exposure to interior materials and paint finishes, to making sure that corrosion absolutely does not happen when steel components come in contact with aluminum panels in the new truck. The goal: ensure that the new F-150 is nothing short of "Built Ford Tough."
But that's only a small part of the story. Of course, the new F-150 has to be able to withstand whatever a pickup buyer might throw at it - and truck buyers arguably demand the most from their vehicles. So in an effort to convey just what the new F-150 had to go through before being given the final go-ahead, Ford has released a series of videos, showing how its new halo truck was indeed torture tested.

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.
