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.

Muscle wins big at 2013 Amelia Island Concours as 1936 Duesenberg, 1968 Ford GT40 take top honors

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 16:30:00 EST

The 18th-annual Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance took place this past weekend, and in one of the show's biggest years yet (bringing in more than 25,000 spectators and attracting more than 300 vehicles), two powerhouses ended up winning the judges' hearts. The top Concours d'Elegance award went to a 1936 Duesenberg SJN, while the Concours de Sport went to one of the celebrated marques, a 1968 Ford GT40.
Owned by Helen and Jack Nethercutt of Sylmar, CA, this flawless Duesy is described as "one of the most powerful open cars of the 1930s," and it displays design cues of the era like rolled fenders and a tapered rear end. The SJN's supercharged straight-eight allowed it to accelerate to 100 miles per hour in just 17 seconds - surely not a disappointing feat for its day.
On a much different level of performance and timelessness, this Gulf-livery GT40 from the Rocky Mountain Auto Collection is not outdone by the elegance of the big Duesenberg thanks to some well-documented racing history. This not only includes winning at LeMans in both 1968 and 1969 - Chassis No. 1075 also managed to win a total of six times in just 11 races.

Watch these Australian Ford and Holden muscle cars duke it out

Wed, 21 Aug 2013 20:29:00 EST

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.

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.
