The wipers don't work. there is a load on the volt meter when you turn them on but they don't move.

the passenger window is malfunctioning. it requires a push or pull to make it go up or down

the passenger door lock does not function with the lock button

the windshield is cracked, one of the back windows is plexiglas because I was loading up some logs and mis judged the distance

I bent the driver door the wrong way like in Tommy boy so you have to lift it to close it

I was standing on the roof to trim a tree and pinched a wire for the dome light and had to pull the fuse. this in turn means the radio has no power. when it worked it sounded terrible any way.

the paint is toast and there are company decals on the doors.

the tail gate is bent because I slammed 3, 12 foot by 4" x 2.5" bars of 17-4 with a forklift to transport them up the road to be cut

The bumper has a zodiac sticker on it however I have come to the conclusion that they left the boat on the ramp and drove the truck in the ocean because the frame is rusted bad. Not the elegant surface rust, the flaky bad kind.

the tires are old but have tread. there are 3 on the Ford exploder rims and one junkyard rim.  the forth exploder rim is FUBAR. I drove it for two miles with a flat overloaded with concrete.

The brakes are bad, also there was a horrendous set of grooves on the rotors when I replaced the pads. most of the brake lines are new because the old ones exploded. there is a large loop in the line from front to rear and is asking to get snagged on debris.

the engine is original as far as I can tell I routinely overload it and it pulls fine. I have hauled several skids of landscape block from lowes which are said to be 2800# according to the label on them. manual downshift is required if you don't like the smell of burnt brakes. a guard rail will help slow it down if needed. the ford 5.0 had a higher nickel content so they tend to wear less and run strong like bull.

the tranny shifts good. it shifts hard into third if there is not a heavy load on it but its probably the u joints. if it is original its a miracle.

there is a clunk when you step on and let off the gas, im guessing ujoints

I used the bumper hitch to pull rocks and stumps out of the ground with a chain. it is now loose.

the interior is filthy but ill probably vacuum it if there are bids

It passed emmissions !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but is due again, the muffler is new but the pipe after it has fallen off and has a leak up front some where.

The ignition is toast. I ripped it apart because it would shut off in the middle of the road. it turned out to be a connector at the bottom of the assembly which I zip tied. needless to say there is a piece of aluminum you must push to start it. its fully functional down one click for on, push to start. back for acc.

The fuel filters have to be clogged with sediment. when traveling up a hill it will sputter at anything more than idle. after a few seconds it runs ok. on several occasions when driving up a hill I have said out loud to my self that this would be a bad time for it to sputter and it happened with in a few seconds.

both fuel tanks work but the fuel gauge only works on the rear tank.

it leaks a small amount of oil

one of the E-brake cables was ripped off during the flat tire incident

the tailgate was smashed a second time in the opposite direction when the chain slipped off a tree stump

The engine runs better when the check engine light is on. depending on the weather it idles high and low

the temp guage does not work

 

Some of the super large rocks I moved to my parents house by using a set of wood ramps a rope and my brothers F-TREE FIDDY. the rock was chained and the rope fastened to the chain. we then ran it over the roof and onto the tow hook of the other truck. we pulled slow at first and when it was lined up I had him ram it home. the rock made it but the rope dented the roof and ripped the passenger side mirror off.

I would not let any one I care about drive it.

I have set a reserve of what the junk yard would give me if I drive it there. It is 325.00 because ebay take 60 for <2000

If you haven't noticed from the pictures this heap is riddled with dents and scratches

 This is being sold AS IS

Bid with confidence

Creations n' Chrome Top Notch Mustang is a one-of-a-kind fox

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 15:40:00 EST

Is there a cooler car from the 1980s and early 90s to mod than a Fox-body Ford Mustang? No, there isn't. If you disagree with us, we suggest you have a look at this 1990 Mustang Coupe, which just might change your mind. Although considering just how extensively modified this car - the Top Notch Mustang from Creations n' Chrome - is, we wonder just how much Ford is left in this old pony.
It rides on a custom race tube chassis that weighs a scant 700 pounds, while carbon-fiber bits and bobs help lower the overall curb weight to a mere 2,400 pounds. When paired with supercharged, 5.0-liter, Aluminator V8 from Ford Racing, the results are, doubtlessly, exciting. 855 horsepower at the rear wheels and 667 pound-feet of torque are available from that force-fed V8 should be just plenty for this car's intended purpose of running in standing-mile competitions.
The Top Notch Mustang is more extreme than just weight savings and a big engine, though. That 5.0-liter is essentially in what's known as a front-mid layout - where the engine is actually behind the front axle. In this case, the 5.0-liter V8 is 17 inches further back than a factory Fox-body, for better weight distribution. As a result, the cabin has been completely overhauled. An SLA front suspension, wheels from HRE, Wilwood brakes and Sparco interior items round out the extensive list of mods.

Ford Transit Skyliner Concept does discreet luxury in NYC

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 08:59:00 EST

There's something to be said for luxed-out vans. They're cool, and as a means of getting chauffeured about, they're extremely comfortable and far more low key than your typical executive luxury sedan. For the 2014 New York Auto Show, Galpin Auto Sports has shown the potential of the new-for-the-US Ford Transit as an ultra-luxurious people hauler.
The Transit Skyliner Concept, which we previewed last week, sports four finely crafted captain's buckets that can be moved into different formations based on need. Want to watch a movie? The seats can be swung around to face a 52-inch screen. Riding along with some business associates? A table can be popped up. There's even a configuration for tailgating.
The materials are, unsurprisingly, pretty plush. The leather seats and wood floors (yes, wood floors in a van) look great, while the trunk and its customized luggage are a nice touch, as well.

This is what a 3D-printed liquid metal Ford Torino looks like

Sat, 12 Oct 2013 11:57:00 EST

Artist Ioan Florea has encapsulated a 1971 Ford Torino with 3-D-printed liquid metal transferred onto the car using technology that he developed, and the result is a stunningly shiny, seamless design.
"The surface has the highest coefficient of reflectivity never achieved before," Florea told us in an e-mail, using "nano-materials and nano-pigments that create an internal three-dimensional structure and dictate the polymer how to behave." Sure... We'll leave it to him to make any more 3-D-printed liquid metal-transferred art pieces.
Florea grew up in Romania, and the motivation behind picking the old Ford as his canvas came from his childhood memories of what an American car is - "big and wide and fascinating," he says - and the European name of the car itself, which it shares with an Italian city.
