Up for Auction is a 1986 F250 4x4 Extended Cab Diesel, I bought this truck with the Intentions of fixing it up, but have decided to head a different direction. What ive done since I bought it, New Injectors, New Glowplugs, New Glow plug Controller, New Glow Plug Relay, New Return Lines. The Tires are Newer, I had Intentions of replacing them with stock sizes and selling the Offroad tires to offset the cost. The Truck currently has a tool box bed on the box, Its seen better days as some of the compartments are rusted out. My plan was to simply rip it off and install a flat bed. The Passenger side window motor gear went bad so I currently have it apart. The Brakes feel soft to me, I just haven't had a chance to tear into them and see what the Issue is. Im currently away from the Truck but if I recall correctly it has roughly 169K (Ill Clarify that next time im out there) on it. The Batteries are Old and they aren't too far away from being replaced, I started it up and drove it around this afternoon, It seemed to shift a little harder than I would have liked, but im also used to my New Ford, It does have a C6 Automatic. Its a Used Truck.. Don't expect to jump in it and head across the country If would like to inspect it, Simply send me a message with a contact number and we can make arrangments. The Truck is Located in Mexico, Mo 65265. Ill also be including a box full of Filters and What Not. It has some Rust in the Extended cab corners, some Paint Peeling etc.. Ive tried to list all the details that I can think of, Its Sold AS-IS., As I stated earlier it will need some work to make a reliable daily Truck IMO.
Automakers and their executives rarely like to divulge information regarding future goings on, but the board of directors at Ford sound like they're getting a little antsy about chief executive officer Alan Mulally and his plans for 2014.
According to Reuters, as news of Mulally's possible departure to Microsoft continues to swirl, Ford's board is looking to push the affable executive to make a decision about his future sooner rather than later. Apparently, the board is growing concerned that this will-he/won't-he drama may end up distracting the media from covering Ford's other big news events next year - items like the debut of key all-new products like the Mustang and F-150.
So far, the picture for Mulally's eventual successor remains fuzzy, but it's understood that the leading candidate remains the company's chief operating officer, Mark Fields. Just recently, we heard that Mulally will stay until the end of 2014, but a few months ago, Ford seemed open to the idea of him stepping down earlier than that.
These days, when you buy a new car, it's not unreasonable to expect a certain period of free maintenance to come along as well. Sometimes this is through the life of the warranty, in other cases a little less. But Ford Motor Company is going beyond those deals for at least one part of its cars. As of now, if you buy a set of Motorcraft brake pads for a Ford, Lincoln or Mercury model, you get free replacements for as long as you own the vehicle. The offer is good at Ford or Lincoln dealers and Quick Lane Tire & Auto Centers.
"We will replace the pads for as long as you own the vehicle," said Elizabeth Weigandt to Autoblog. She did clarify that the Motorcraft pads are generally for models from the '90s or newer. Also, to take advantage of this program, a person must return to the same dealer each time to get the free parts.
Of course, Ford isn't just handing out brake pads to anyone who walks by; there are certain stipulations. First, the components have to be worn down to less than three millimeters to be eligible, and the buyer still has to pay for the labor to install them. If the model is used as a fleet vehicle for commercial purposes like as a taxi or limousine, this offer also doesn't apply; the same thing for racecars. On the plus side, if you recently bought a set of pads from one of the participating locations, you're still in luck. The deal covers parts purchased as of July 1.
The current Ford Explorer is sold in more than 64 countries, and this three-row vehicle continues to grow in popularity worldwide. To keep up with demand, Ford began producing the Explorer at Ford Sollers Elabuga Assembly Plant in Tatarstan, Russia, a joint venture facility. This partnership will build Russian-market Explorers only, and production of export vehicles not destined for Russian buyers will continue to be built at Ford's assembly plant in Chicago.
Before this plant went online, Ford would ship Explorers to Russia (and other regions around the world) as partially assembled knock-down units where final assembly would eventually take place. While there is no indication as to how many Explorers Ford Sollers will build for Russia, Ford did add that exports of the SUV were up 65 percent last year (from 2011) accounting for more than 24,000 units.
Scroll down for a press release about the Russian Explorer as well as a video (bad music and all) showing the SUV being produced in Tatarstan.
