1966 Ford F250 Camper Special. This is a very nice drive as is or a super start to a resto. This F250 lived the first part of its life on a small island in the Olympic mountain range, which is why it has under 40K. Although the truck has minimal rust none of it is abnormal for the places that these would start to see some. This truck was ordered with the heavy GVW camper special and rare power brake and auto trans. The outside still wears 99 percent of the OEM Marlin Blue, the inside is nearly perfect.... in fact check the steering wheel, no black showing through or cracks in it. A perfect dash pad and floor mat as well. I had the comfort weave part of the seat redone with the original material from SMS Auto Fabrics to make it period correct, the cost was high but worth it! The auto leaked and made noise so I stepped up and had it completely rebuilt and new converter installed. Other repairs that have been done include new tires, brakes, hoses, belts, alt, radiator, carb rebuilt, and tune up. This truck, as most this age do, still has room for repair and enough to make it your own! Nothing major though, take it out and have some fun or get a little work done. The stock 352 runs like a watch and sails down the road with a solid 60 lb of oil pressure. This old girl hides nothing under new paint or bondo, what you see is what you get! Email with questions prior to bidding. Payment due 48 hours after end of auction via bank trans, truck to be picked up no later than 7 days after end of auction. Other arrangements can be made prior to bidding, thanks!
The Ford Mustang turns 50 years old this year, and this is the logo that will announce the milestone occasion on a special line of merchandise. The graphic is the result of an internal design competition, and Ford will give 50 different companies the license to use it on traditional logo merchandise like shirts and watches, along with some untraditional items like pinball machines.
Ford is going to begin the celebrations at this week's New York Auto Show and continue them throughout the year, but April 17 is the official birthday of the the pony car that just won't quit. You can expect to start seeing anniversary merchandise in the next couple of weeks.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's investigation into 2008 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty pickups, which was originally opened last year, has now ended without a recall. NHTSA was looking into steering failures on some 336,000 trucks.
The issue rested with the steering gear - NHTSA received five complaints of failures - which was redesigned in 2005. According to the report on the matter, investigators "found evidence of broken sector shaft gear teeth and piston damage consistent with incidents of single event overload."
NHTSA investigators, however, "found no evidence of fatigue or material property defects in any of the fractures. Analysis of complaint rates by vehicle build month showed no patterns indicating potential manufacturing quality issues and no difference before and after Ford introduced design changes to the input shaft and sector shaft seals in July 2007 to address potential leak concerns," according to the report, obtained by The Detroit News.
A problem with the fuel line on certain examples of the Ford Edge has prompted the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to issue a recall. The issue revolves around the metal housing on the fuel line pulse damper, which was apparently improperly manufactured in the first place and is prone to crack in certain circumstances, leading to a fuel leak. And as we all know, a fuel leak is not a good thing.
The problem affects model year 2012 and 2013 Edge crossovers equipped with the 2.0-liter engine and manufactured between September 2, 2010 and April 25, 2013 - a total of 27,933 units. Although the Lincoln MKX is closely related to the Edge, since it isn't offered with the same engine (to which the problem is related), the recall does not include the premium-badged version. See the recall notice below for further details.
