Chopped Channeled Custom Rat Rod Custom Street Rod Hot Rod Z'ed Frame Old School on 2040-cars
Frankfort, Kentucky, United States
I have a cool old rat rod for sale. Has a lot of custom work and a lot of money in it. To start its a 100% Henry Ford steel body that is solid and rust free. Cab was chopped 3 inches and channeled raising the floor another 3 inches. Surprisingly it still has room and Im 6'0 230lbs. Frame is z'ed in front of cab but other than that frame is the original frame for the truck. Bed is original also with a beautiful wooden floor.
Motor is a stock bore 350 4 bolt main with open headers, edelbrock intake and holley carb. Runs very well and just made a trip from Ga which was right at 11hrs. Trans is also a stock 350 turbo which shifts good no slips or leaks. Truck actually doesn't leak a drop of anything at all. Rear end is a 10bolt with open dif. Truck cruises the interstate with no problem at all.
Interior is all custom black and white from headliner to carpet all brand new. Has tilt column which helps with giving a little more room. Has a corvair steering box. All new wiring making sure all lights and gauges work like they should and no chance of fire from old wiring. Has original gauges and speedo works! Truck runs cool charges great and has great oil pressure. Has working turn signals brake lights and headlights.
Have coker white wall tires with chrome steelies and baby moon caps. Brakes are disc in front and drum in rear.
Paint is hot rod black with red hand painted custom pin stripping.
Truck is a very nice very reliable cruiser with a true 1937 Ford title that I have in hand. No builder title!
There is so much more than listed here but you would really have to just walk around the truck with me to remember everything.
Your more than welcome to come look and listen to the truck for your self.

Australia's Motoring has put together a little video on two of the great performance vehicles available down under - the Holden VF Commodore HSV GTS and the Ford Falcon FPV GT R-Spec. And while both FPV and the Falcon might be on their way out, there's still plenty of time for a little head-to-head comparison between the two.

The cars aren't all that well evenly matched, though. The Ford boasts a 5.0-liter, supercharged V8, which the Aussies measure out at 449 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. The HSV, though, with its Corvette-derived, 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 is just too powerful - 576 hp and 545 lb-ft of torque.
Predictably, it doesn't end too well for the Ford. As the guys from Motoring point out, the new VF Commodore is just too new and too good, with its extra power and its adaptive dampers (GM's excellent MagnaRide). Interestingly, Motoring did point out that the Holden's electric steering is better than the Ford's hydraulic steering, which is a lot like a Porsche purist saying they prefer water-cooled engines to air cooled.
Between slow sales and a hefty price drop for its nearest rival, the Ford Focus Electric may be looking at a pretty substantial price cut. The Detroit News is reporting that Ford will drop the price of the all-electric by about $4,000 to $35,200 to be more competitive with the Nissan Leaf, which received a big price cut for 2013 down to $28,800.

Ford has already admitted to having low expectations for the car's sales and massive rebates were reported earlier in the year, but there is still no official word from Ford on this matter. The company's consumer site still lists the 2014 model's starting price as $39,200. In addition to the Leaf, the Focus Electric will also have to deal with the lower prices of smaller EVs including the Honda Fit EV, Fiat 500e and the Chevrolet Spark EV.
Ford is recalling about 70,209 examples of the 2005-2008 Ford Escape Hybrid and the 2006-2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid because the cooling pumps for their hybrid systems could fail.
According to the company's defect notice, it's possible for the original "Motor Electronics Coolant (MEC) Pump" to wear out and fail, which would could cause the hybrid system to overheat. If this happens, the vehicle goes into a safety mode that takes away most or all of its power. However, braking and steering still operate normally. After cooling down, the affected models restart normally. The company says that it's not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this problem.
Ford will begin repairing the vehicles in late October, and dealers will be installing improved, brushless pumps on the affected models at no charge to owners. If drivers had their pumps fail before this recall, they can contact Ford for a possible reimbursement.
