Drive Type: Auto
Vancouver, Washington, United States
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 2015 Ford Mustang is one of the most anticipated cars of the year, despite the fact that production hasn't yet begun. What's a pony car fan to do? It turns out that Ford already has pricing and options information about the vehicle in its dealer ordering system. A few enterprising folks have snapped some pictures from it and have posted them online. You might not be able to drive your car yet, but you can at least see what it might cost.
At the moment, Ford appears to be splitting the Mustang into five models - 3.7-liter V6, 2.3-liter EcoBoost, GT with the 5.0-liter V8, 50th Anniversary and SVT. There are 10 available paint colors, 2 of which require an extra outlay. Triple Yellow is $495, and Ruby Red Tint is $395. Regardless of model, navigation goes for $795, and reverse parking assist is $295.
For both the EcoBoost and GT, the six-speed automatic tacks an extra $1,195 to the sticker, and adaptive cruise control is the same price. The GT also has a limited-slip 3.55 rear end for $395 and a GT Performance package for $2,495. Recaro leather seats add an extra $1,595. For the EcoBoost, there's something called EcoBoost Performance package for $1,995. The system doesn't say what the packages include.
Is your beloved in love with the new 2015 Ford Mustang? Do they like chocolate (that's a trick question - everyone likes chocolate)? Are they a bit of a futurist? Then this Hallmark holiday, you need to get them this Ford Mustang, 3D-printed in sweet, delicious chocolate.
Ford is teaming with 3D Systems' Sugar Lab in LA to produce the super-accurate pony car confections in both chocolate and sugar candy varieties. The process kicked off with a CAD rendering of the 2015 Mustang, which was then programmed into the 3D printer. After a bit of work from the machine, a four-inch long, two-inch tall Mustang was the result. Why the tieup with 3D Systems, though?
"We wanted to create something fun to show that while 3D printing made these edible Mustangs, manufacturing-level 3D printing was used in the development of Ford's all-new sports car," said Paul Susalla, Ford's supervisor of 3D printing.
Concentrated ST Formula Proves Just As Potent
I'm not the jealous type... usually. But I will fully admit to being somewhat of a Pouty Polly when I read executive editor Chris Paukert's report after driving the then-new 2013 Ford Focus ST through the impossibly pretty southern French Alps region last June. I feel like a broken record saying this yet again, but hot hatchbacks hold a special place in my heart. And while I'm always giddy to drive any sort of small, turbocharged three- or five-door at home in Detroit, my jealousy was indeed piqued after hearing Paukert tell about the challenging yet breathtaking roads he encountered while driving the flamin' yellow Focus. You know, the sort of roads that, from above, look like carelessly drizzled lines of icing on the frosted Alpen caps.
Several months later, I found myself piloting a Focus ST just west of metro Detroit, pitting it head-to-head against one of Autoblog's perennial favorite cars, the Volkswagen GTI. It was fantastic - enough so that I fully stand behind my statement that in terms of balls-out performance, the Focus ST cannot be beat as far as today's front-wheel-drive hatches are concerned.
