1986 (titled as a 1985) Ford F250 plain Jane with a fresh 6V53 Turbo Detroit Diesel, two-stroke, twin cam, blown and turboed!  You've got to hear this thing to believe it!!  Purchased from the original owner who owned his own diesel repair shop, started out with the 6.9 Ford (International) diesel.  About 11,000 miles ago the owner pulled the cab & bed off and did the conversion to the Detroit Diesel, put the turbo on it, did the exhaust plumbing, put new cab mounts & lifted and painted it and put a heavier duty 5 spd O/D ZF tranny in it.  You just about need to double clutch it, so it is a pretty heavy duty trans.  Not sure about the rear diff if it was upgraded or not, some might be able to tell by the photos. 

 
So the mileage reads a little over 134k but the whole thing was freshened up including the engine, blower & turbo gone through also at that time 11k miles ago.  This thing really turns heads, as people are not expecting it to sound like it does and then they try to figure out what it has in it, a lot of fun!!

I give the complete drivetrain, tires & brakes a 10.  The body, paint, chrome & glass between a 7 to 8.  The interior about a 8.  Drives down the road straight, stops straight, shifts great, very comfortable for a regular cab.

Its not a show truck but it is a very usable, very heavy duty, very powerful, everyday work truck/hot rod!!

Official USPS Muscle Cars stamps coming to a mailbox near you

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 13:59:00 EST

As much as our digital lives have cut down on our trips to the post office, there are still times that sending "snail mail" is necessary. With us car lovers in mind and philately in their hearts, the good folks at the United States Postal Service will introduce a new stamp design called "Muscle Cars" starting on February 22.
Designed by artist Tom Fritz, the new collection of stamps consist of five classic muscle cars: 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, 1967 Shelby GT-500, 1966 Pontiac GTO and 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda. In addition to just the stamps, the USPS is also commemorating the new series with plenty of collectable memorabilia. Previous car-related stamps include 50s Sporty Cars from 2005 and 50s Fins and Chrome from 2008.

2015 Mustang-based Saleen S302 to boast as much as 640 hp

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 13:57:00 EST

The Ford Mustang is obviously a famous performance vehicle in its own right, but it often works even better as a platform for the aftermarket to upgrade. With the all-new 2015 model just now hitting the scene, the famous tuners at Saleen are getting their improvements for the new pony car ready for the world. After recently teasing it, the specs for its fresh S302 model are officially here, along with a first look at it in profile.
Of course, the biggest question on everyone's mind is how much power the company can get from the Mustang's V8. With the 2015 V8 model rated at 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet, Saleen expects to bump the Ford factory numbers slightly to 450 hp and 410 lb-ft in naturally aspirated form, or with the benefit of a supercharger, it will rocket the engine's output figures to 640 hp and 565 lb-ft. No matter which powerplant a buyer chooses, there are a wide variety of available final-drive ratios with a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox.
Available as either a coupe or convertible forms, Saleen will offer its S302 in three trim levels - White Label, Yellow Label and Black Label. The White Label is the only naturally aspirated one of the bunch, but it still benefits from upgrades like a new exhaust, limited-slip differential, improved suspension, heat extractor hood and rear wing.

Hennessey completes first VelociRaptor SUV conversion [w/video]

Mon, 20 May 2013 16:57:00 EST

Start with a Ford F-150 SVT Raptor as your base vehicle for modification, and chances are high that you'll end up with something pretty cool. Now, have those modifications done by professional lunatics Hennessey Performance, make the project turning the pickup into an ultra-long SUV, and the result stands a real chance of being a total kick in the ass. Let us present the Hennessey VelociRaptor then, in all of its awesomeness.
Hennessey has taken care in grafting a "Expedition style" rear cabin onto the Raptor, complete with an optional third row. The pictures we have show a cabin that's up to the fit and finish standards of the original Ford truck, too. The cab added over the bed also makes room for a massive load space out back, accessible via split out-folding doors and long enough for a person to lay down in (see video).
Mechanically, the truck-turned-SUV sticks with Ford's stock 6.2-liter V8, rated at 411 horsepower, or can be had with a supercharger and some 600 hp. Hennessey says the stock-motor VelociRaptor will run from 0-60 miles per hour in 7.5 seconds, while the hi-po version takes just 5.9 seconds. The SUV does take some of the off-road ability away from the Raptor, with the company saying it hasn't yet had the opportunity to test its capabilities. On-roading and "moderate off-road duties" are the current prescription.
