Swisher, Iowa, United States

 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 reveals concept trucks that ultimately became Atlas

Wed, 03 Apr 2013 19:50:00 EST

The Ford Atlas Concept was one of the quiet success stories of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, and now Ford has given us a quick glimpse as to how that creation came to be. Designers actually combined two early sketches to build the Atlas. One, called the Bullet Train, is a futuristic, aerodynamic creation, while the other, aptly named the Locomotive, features the squared off proportions we're familiar with.
Once designers settled on the truck's proportions, they began nailing down exactly which attributes they wanted the final design to have. The Concept's notched windshield originated as a forked glass roof that seamlessly transitioned into the windscreen.
Likewise, designers wanted to fit the truck's tailgate with a storage compartment for tools and a first aid kit, but settled on the dual-purpose step/cargo cradle. Interestingly enough, the concept's active aero shutter wheels actually originated in some of the earliest sketches. Check out the photos and slides here for a closer look.

Motorweek goes retro with '80s hot hatch shootout

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 19:57:00 EST

Motorweek's decades of history on television make it the perfect medium to look back into the automotive past and see how things are different now. It recently added old road test videos to its YouTube channel of the Acura NSX and Toyota Supra, as well as the Ferrari F40. For one of its newest flashback clips, Motorweek has exhumed an affordable five-car challenge of 1986's premiere hot hatches.
By today's standards, this is an eclectic field that features fondly remembered classics like the Volkswagen GTI 16-valve and Acura Integra. However, it also throws in some nearly forgotten contenders like the Dodge Colt Turbo and Ford Escort GT. The angular Toyota Corolla FX16 GT-S rounds out the group.
It's fascinating to watch Motorweek run the quintet through the slalom, down the drag strip and on various roads. What's most striking in this clip is the difference in the definition of a performance car between then and now. With its 16-valve, 1.8-liter four-cylinder, the GTI is the burliest of the contenders with 123 horsepower, but it still takes 8.8 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour. By today's standards, that would make it a plain-jane economy car, and not even a particularly quick one.

Nelson Piquet and Nigel Mansell revisit bitter F1 rivalry in... Ford Fusion campaign?

Wed, 23 Jan 2013 12:45:00 EST

Formula One World Champions Nelson Piquet and Nigel Mansell haven't been on good terms since the 1986 season, when Piquet joined Mansell at the Williams team and Piquet spent the year privately fuming about not being granted the status of number one driver. Things only got worse from there - even though Piquet won the title the following year with Williams, still partnered with Mansell, the fuming was a lot less private.
They're back together after a 25-year silence, in the city of Porto Alegre, Brazil to drive the new Ford Fusion. Called "Fusion Grand Prix," both men get the new Ford sedan, prepped to their liking - but still street legal, we assume - for a race to decide... well, who is faster behind the wheel of a Fusion.
There will be four episodes, with the first two having already aired. The third episode comes on January 29 and the race happens February 5. You'll find two video episodes and a press release below, but note - because it's a campaign for Ford Brazil, Piquet's dialogue in the vids isn't translated, so hit the Closed Captioning button to hear his side of the smack talking.
