 1996 Ford F350 XLT Crew Cab long box 4x4, 7.3 Powerstroke Diesel with a five speed manual O/D transmission , WARN manual lockout hubs, limited slip rear diff., I believe the axle ratio to be a 4:10.

I bought this truck about a year ago, as a project, it had a bad motor (someone eithered it) and had sat for a while (owner undecided on selling or fixing). I purchased a long block, had the heads rebuilt and the block tanked, checked, and honed by Lawrence  Machine Shop. Engine was reassembled with new cam bearings, rod bearings, main bearings, rings, oil pump, water pump, glow plugs, glow plug relay, cam sensor, several other new sensors, a reman. HPOP pump, HPOP regulator, and reman. injectors. New valve cover gaskets w/new wiring connectors, new thermostat, serpentine belt, pulleys and tensioner, new boots for intake manifold pipes, updated cold air intake. 3" down pipe and 4" exhaust all the way back, new shifter boot, and two new batteries.

Body and paint in really good condition, no major dents or scratches, has been cleaned, buffed, and waxed. One small area on drivers door has blistering (picture 7), the pickup bed is typical dinged, dented, and scratched but not rusty (could use a bed liner or line-x).  Interior is in good condition, normal wear on drivers seat (small tear picture13), one small puncture/hole on rear seat (picture 20), head liner and door panels in good condition.  SONY AM/FM CD player. NEW CARPET. Really nice (Eagle?)Alloy wheels with 33-12.50x16 Hercules Terra Trac tires, plenty of tread left.

Tow hitch, brake controller, and NEW CURT goose neck hitch with turnover ball.

I have tried to remember all that was done to this truck and show as much as I could with photos, but I probably forgot something. It is a really nice truck and looks, runs, sounds good and turns a lot of heads. I have put about a hundred and fifty miles on it since completed. I never intended to keep this project truck and I feel it is ready to sell before I start liking it to much. It could use step bars and a bed liner but I will leave those touches to the new owner. If you have questions or need other photos I will try to respond, can be seen or driven locally, and will be for offered for sale locally also, so may end early.

I have plenty of receipts and a clear title in hand. Contact : rkolosik@hotmail.com

As with any seventeen year old vehicle there is no warranty intended or implied.

Shipping and transportation is buyers responsibility.

AS I DO NOT WISH TO MISREPRESENT THIS TRUCK, I WAS ASKED WHAT THE CONDITION OF THE REAR WHEEL WELLS WAS. THEY APPEARED REALLY NICE BUT I HAD NEVER REMOVED THE FENDER FLAIRS. I REMOVED THEM THIS MORNING AND THE FINDINGS WERE DISAPPOINTING. THERE IS RUST. I APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE, PLEASE ADJUST YOUR BIDDING ACCORDINGLY. CONTACT ME IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS, PROBLEMS, OR PICTURES YOU WISH TO SEE. I HAVE EMAILED THE PERSON THAT ASKED THE QUESTION AND INFORMED THEM OF THE RUST ISSUE.

Ford Q1 profits dragged down by warranty costs

Fri, 25 Apr 2014 19:13:00 EST

General Motors isn't the only Detroit automaker posting falling profits in the first quarter. Ford just released its Q1 2014 financial data, and it reported a net income of $989 million, down $622 million from Q1 2013. The drop is partially blamed on higher warranty and recall expenses than the company had anticipated.
Financially, Ford suffered a rough quarter almost across the board. Its pre-tax profit of $1.4 billion was also down $765 million from a year ago. Things were even worse in the North American market where operating profit fell significantly to $1.5 billion, down from $2.392 billion in Q1 2013. However, its global revenue ticked up slightly to $35.9 billion, from $35.6 billion in this period in 2013.
Ford admitted that it spent about $900 million on expenses that it hadn't planned for during this quarter. According to Reuters, the company paid about $400 million in additional warranty and recall costs in North America. The automaker didn't explain why the costs were so much higher than expected. However, in the last three months, Ford has had several recalls, including on the 2001-2004 Escape for rust, Explorer for its steering, Edge for its fuel line and others.

Ford Mustang GT500 successor spied near SVT

Tue, 17 Sep 2013 12:31:00 EST

Details about the next-gen Ford Mustang are scarce, and there's even less information out there about the upcoming replacement for the Shelby GT500. Previously rumored to drop the Shelby name and wear the GT350 moniker, the highest-performance Mustang has just been spotted testing near Ford's SVT operations.
Despite being cloaked in heavy camouflage, we can instantly tell this prototype is different from other Mustang spy shots we've seen in the past. Aside from the Shelby-spec wheels, quad exhaust outlets (previous spy shots show only two) and beefier brakes, this car also has air intakes on the hood and front fenders. These elements help to neither prove nor dismiss rumors that the next SVT Mustang will be naturally aspirated. It also looks like Ford is may be planning some changes to this car's rear suspension, as there is some extra camouflage added beneath the rear end of this prototype.
As a bonus, these spy shots also give us our first look inside the new Mustang, revealing a new steering wheel (with more buttons) and a glimpse of the dual-pod instrument gauges. Check out past spy shots of the 2015 Mustang showing off its new face and driving around town.

Ford Figo concept unveiled in India

Mon, 03 Feb 2014 10:15:00 EST

Ford has officially unveiled the Figo Concept at the 2014 Auto Expo in New Delhi. While it may wear a concept badge, we'd argue this little sedan, which is under 12 feet long, looks ready to replace the current Figo and do battle with other B-segment cars in the world's emerging markets.
"With the Figo Concept, we are showing that choosing a compact sedan does not mean compromising on premium design or smart solutions," said Kumar Galhotra, Ford's VP of engineering, global product development. That premium design includes Ford's familial, trapezoidal grille and Fusion-esque headlights in front, while the rear end reminds us of the last-generation Focus Coupe. While that car wasn't exactly attractive, the chopped off tail looks pretty nice on this smaller car. And if you really don't like the looks of the Figo Concept, just remember - it looks better than the current production model. Aerodynamically, the Figo's shape is quite slippery, which means reduced wind noise and improved fuel economy.
As for the "smart solutions" touted by Galhotra, the narrow confines of Indian streets make driving even the tiniest cars a challenge. To give the Figo Concept a one-up on the competition, Ford has fitted power-folding mirrors that sport a "flexible architecture," which should stand up well to bumps from cars, people or bikes. We don't have any interior images, but Ford is promising a large cabin, that includes a dock that can accommodate a phone or MP3 player, allowing either to be controlled through the car.
