For your consideration, a 1962 ford Unibody truck with the V8 and the 4 speed. Ford attempted to attach the tuck bed to the cab in 61 and 62 and unfortunately it created body flex problems for people using the truck for hauling loads, which is generally why people get a truck to begin with. The trucks looked great, but soon truck buyers were aware of the problem and it was discontinued in 1963 to return to a separate bed. Unibody ford trucks have become quite sought after as they look great and they are still strong enough for most purposes.
This truck was a rust free Colorado truck in Pueblo. In fact, it was in such nice condition that it was hard not to completely repaint and detail the undercarriage. The miles are unknown, but the engine starts instantly and has full compression, it is the original 292 Y block. We pulled the engine to detail it and it didn't even have a leak. The 4 speed shifts perfect and we detailed it. The interesting thing about this truck is being an F250, 3/4 ton. Most survivors are more likely to be the F100 driven more as a car than used as a full work vehicle. Hauling heavy loads could bend the cab but this one was quite straight. We did put in new kingpins and they need to break in, but the truck is ready for show or go. The drive train is very sound, an overhaul just was not justified. It has new paint, new glass, new seals, complete detail and everything kept as original except for the bed liner. There were a few bumps and bed liner just made sense. This is a very interesting truck and quite original. It's a solid base to build a modified but the originality makes it a great show truck. Even has the original tailgate. It's also street legal but advisable to trailer it if you are an out of state buyer.
Partial delivery can be arranged for states adjacent to Colorado at a nominal fee. It is also available to test drive in the Denver area. The truck would really look sharp at a farm or any nostalgia business. I'm a 100% seller and sold quite a few western cars with rave reviews. I do require a $500.00 paypal deposit. Paypal weeds out the scammers and it protects you if the item is not as described. I can work with you on some transportation out of Denver at reasonable rates.

While its days may be numbered, Ford isn't just going to let its Falcon sedan limp out for the Australian market. No, the Blue Oval is releasing a refreshed Falcon for its final years, and it's lead by this, the new XR8. That's right, this dead-car-driving is going to go out on a high note.

Ford's global design DNA dominates the looks of the new Falcon, with a grille reminiscent of the US market Fusion and the European-market Mondeo. The headlights aren't a straight port, and boast their own unique LED running light pattern (at least on the XR8), but the overall look is strikingly similar. Out back, LED taillights highlight the rear of the Faclon. Despite the substantial new fascia, this is still a mid-cycle refresh. That means most of the rest of the Falcon's body panels are carryovers from the current model.
The XR8 model, shown above, arrives with a supercharged V8, allegedly displacing 5.0 liters. Unfortunately, details on the Falcon's mechanicals are in remarkably short supply. Ford has committed to a range of turbocharged four, as well as turbocharged and naturally aspirated six-cylinders, in addition to the V8, although specifics on those mills aren't available.
Motorweek's decades of history on television make it the perfect medium to look back into the automotive past and see how things are different now. It recently added old road test videos to its YouTube channel of the Acura NSX and Toyota Supra, as well as the Ferrari F40. For one of its newest flashback clips, Motorweek has exhumed an affordable five-car challenge of 1986's premiere hot hatches.

By today's standards, this is an eclectic field that features fondly remembered classics like the Volkswagen GTI 16-valve and Acura Integra. However, it also throws in some nearly forgotten contenders like the Dodge Colt Turbo and Ford Escort GT. The angular Toyota Corolla FX16 GT-S rounds out the group.
It's fascinating to watch Motorweek run the quintet through the slalom, down the drag strip and on various roads. What's most striking in this clip is the difference in the definition of a performance car between then and now. With its 16-valve, 1.8-liter four-cylinder, the GTI is the burliest of the contenders with 123 horsepower, but it still takes 8.8 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour. By today's standards, that would make it a plain-jane economy car, and not even a particularly quick one.
The Detroit News reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has officially closed its investigations into 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2004-2005 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey models. The separate probes found no issues that pose safety concerns. NHTSA began investigating certain Grand Cherokee SUVs over complaints that power steering hoses could detach during operation, thereby increasing the risk of a vehicle fire. Of the 24 reports of failure, none alleged smoke or fire in the engine bay, and Chrysler has since modified the power steering cooler assembly to reduce the likelihood of the failure.
Meanwhile, certain Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey vehicles garnered a government probe after receiving complaints that the models were equipped with faulty scissor jacks. The agency had received six reports of the jacks failing or causing injuries, including one incident that resulted in a fatality. But NHTSA says the jack failure rate is similar to those found in other vehicles. In those six cases, the government agency found the jacks were being used for something other than changing a tire, and investigators could not determine whether the emergency brake was set or the rear tires were properly chocked.
