1989 F-superduty 4x4 Flatbed No Reserve on 2040-cars
is pretty clean for its vintage but there are a few dings plus rust coming mostly at the door bottoms and mirror attachments and the rockerpanels have been patch welded
Adel, Iowa, United States
This is my Ford Superduty 4x4. It has a new 7.3L diesel crate motor (10K on it) with an ATS turbocharger, intercooler, and pyrometer. The transmission is a 5 speed manual with PTO pump and rear outlets with an in cab control box. The transfercase was replaced recently. The clutch was replaced with a kevelar clutch with the new engine and the 4 wheel disc brakes are all newish. The tires are solid but not new (I'd say around 25%). The flatbed was shop made and solid as a rock and has a gooseneck and rear hitch with a brake controller. The exterior is pretty clean for its vintage but there are a few dings plus rust coming mostly at the door bottoms and mirror attachments and the rockerpanels have been patch welded. The underbody is in excellent condition for its age with little rust, it is as clean as I've seen on a truck this old. The exhaust is 4" and new. The interior is in decent shape with power windows and locks. Overall just a solid workhorse. Will handle more weight than my newer 450's, its basically just an old, reliable tank. Not fancy but pretty sharp and definitely unique. Call Josh at 515-291-7420 with any questions. I will try to answer emails but I'm better about answering a phone.

With Shelby preparing to wind down production of its brutal GT350, a 624-horsepower Mustang that's meant to go up against the Roush Stage 3 in the world of tuned Ford ponycars, the Las Vegas-based tuner is looking to give back to one lucky customer. It'll auction off the very first GT350 ever produced, at the 2013 Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas, a three-day event that runs from September 26 through September 28.

The GT350 is a monster, with a 5.0-liter, supercharged V8 that's been tuned well past 600 horsepower in a time when Ford's own Shelby-branded GT500 barely reached 550 horsepower. The GT350 is much louder than Ford's effort, too, both visually and audibly. The wide body look isn't what we'd call conventional, but on a car that sounds and goes like this, something extreme is needed. According to Shelby American's vice president of production, Gary Davis, "Carroll was very excited about the new wide body option, so that was included on this car. It's the first 2012 GT350 serial number from our anniversary year. It is a very special car." Wilwood brakes, a massaged suspension, and some very fat, sticky tires add to the Shelby experience.
This particular GT350 will be lot number 750, and will cross the Barrett-Jackson stage on Sunday, September 28.
Unless you've been living in an off-the-grid cabin in the woods for the last couple of weeks or abstain entirely from social media activities, you've probably seen someone you know dump a bucket of ice and water over their own head recently. While the origins of the so-called Ice Bucket Challenge are shrouded in a history typical of Internet memes, its effectiveness in raising money and awareness for the ALS Association has been astonishing.

Celebrities from the worlds of entertainment, sports, technology and more have generated untold millions of video views in support of the organization that is helping patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease), and generated a much needed influx of cash, as well. Recent reports have some $15.6M raised in the last two weeks.
Of course, the big-hearted world of automotive celebrities has taken part in the drenching charity effort as well. Follow on below for some of the biggest names on four wheels getting iced for charity, with a smattering of your favorite Autobloggers thrown in for good measure.
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.
