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.

Jay Leno has to be under significant pressure knowing the appetite his fans have for a new Jay Leno's Garage video every week. This time, Jay takes a break from his usual format (something he's been doing with some frequency as of late) and goes back to his roots as a talk show host. There's no classic in the garage his episode with an interesting story to tell and a sumptuous exhaust note. Instead, the focus is purely on interviewing 23-year-old NASCAR racer Joey Logano about what it's like to be a racecar driver in his Ford Fusion.

Logano started racing at the tender age of six and has risen up the circle-track ranks to the big show of the NASCAR Sprint Cup. The two of them talk about what it's like to compete in the sport today compared to yesteryear, and Logano shares some racing anecdotes. Of course, they also get into what it's like to be on the racetrack controlling a car with about 850 horsepower, a four-speed manual transmission and brakes without any power boost. Scroll down to watch the video.
The ongoing heavy-duty truck battle between Ford and Ram is showing no signs of slowing down. The Blue Oval is trying to remove at least one point of contention between the two brands by testing its 2015 F-450 Super Duty using the Society of Automotive Engineers J2807 towing standard, which Ram also uses. In the new evaluation, the F-450 is rated at a max towing capacity of 31,200 pounds. That's an identical amount as under Ford's own, previous test.

"We leave no doubt with customers that the F-450 pickup truck has best-in-class towing of 31,200 pounds - whether tested using our own internal towing standards or SAE J2807," said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president for Global Product Development, in the company's release.
At the same time, Ford is also changing how it calculates the F-450's payload. Instead of using its minimum curb weight as before, the brand is now using the truck's base curb weight. The revision lowers the pickup's rating to 5,300 pounds, compared to 5,450 pounds previously. The company said in its announcement that the reason for this is "aligning its payload rating practices with other manufacturers to make it easier for customers to compare vehicles." General Motors made a similar switch for its pickups in August.
Say what you will about the evolution of the Ford Explorer, from roofed Ranger to body-on-frame sport utility vehicle to unibody crossover - the bottom line is that it's been a tremendously successful model for Ford. In fact, the Blue Oval automaker has sold seven million Explorer models in the United States alone.
The milestone, marked nearly a quarter-century after the introduction of the original in 1990, comes on the eve of the introduction of a new Explorer at the Los Angeles Auto Show this week. We don't yet know how the new Explorer will shape up, but we're mere days away from finding out.
Now heading into its sixth generation, the Explorer has formed the basis of Ford's utility lineup for over two decades. The Explorer landed on the market right around the time that the Bronco was trailing off, predating the company's expansion into larger SUVs like the Expedition and Excursion and crossovers like the Escape, Edge and Flex.
