Power windows, locks, mirrors, cruise control, air conditioning, tilt steering
6.8 Liter Triton V10 Gasoline with Automatic transmission
**132k actual miles shown but unable to guarantee**
This vehicle was purchased from corporate fleet group. A very solid truck. Cab is very tight - shows no sign of off-road abuse. Engine starts easy - runs smooth - no smoke. Transmission shifts out smoothly - powertrain throughout is quiet & well meshed. Steering is tight - truck drives true down the road. Would be a great candidate for natural gas or propane conversion. This truck is capable of being fitted with a standard size 9.5 ft cab and chassis flat bed. If you are interested in one we can give you a price on one of ours and have it installed prior to shipment.
This truck's actual mileage is 132,526 but it will have to be sold as true mileage unknown.
When it was brought in to auction, it had a fuse blown that prevented mileage odometer from displaying in dash and so it was represented as TMU. The vehicle history report will reflect that.
We replaced the fuse and everything shows as should.
Even though the truck's mileage has continued to be logged by vehicle's ECM module, and the vehicle would have to have the computer replaced in order to tamper with actual mileage shown; we will have to represent this vehicle as being sold with actual mileage as unknown. Check out the vehicle history report on this vehicle - it will solidify mileage accuracy.
All in all this is a great truck. Please call 479.267.1860 or email me with any questions you may have. This truck is for sale locally, therefore I reserve the right to end auction early due to an on the spot purchase. Thank you.

Whether it's lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring or automatic emergency braking, most of the electronic systems we see emerging on new vehicles focus on safety. But there are some there just for enthusiasts. We're talking about systems like automatic throttle blipping for perfect downshifts, or launch control to get that textbook acceleration from a standstill. But the latest system could prove just the opposite of the latter.

Although it has given us most of the details, Ford is still keeping certain elements of its new Mustang secret. But emerging reports may have the skinny on one system which Ford is trying is darnedest to keep under its hat for the time being. That, according to unnamed sources cited by Motor Authority, is burnout control.
The system is reportedly designed to help novices execute the perfect smokey burnout - sort of like launch control, but specifically the opposite. The system could, according to elaborative speculation, lock the front brakes while spooling up the engine to optimal revolutions before dumping (or indicating the driver to do dump) the clutch. A cloud of tire smoke and a long pair of skid marks would then ensue.
The economic downturn wrought devastating effects on motor racing. Formula One alone lost half its engine suppliers when Honda left at the end of the 2008 season, and both BMW and Toyota followed at the end of 2009. But things are looking up again. Cosworth may have dropped out this season, reducing the engine suppliers to three: Ferrari, Renault and Mercedes, the latter of which admits that it may have left had the engine formula not changed. But Mercedes has stayed and is dominating the championship. Honda is coming back next season. And word around the paddock is it may not be the only one.

According to Giancarlo Minardi - founder of the team now known as Scuderia Toro Rosso - BMW engineers have been conspicuously spotted lately at F1 test sessions and grands prix, lending to speculation that the new engine regulations may entice the Bavarian automaker back into the series. According to Minardi, BMW's marketing division is pushing for the automaker's return to F1, with the board slated to make a decision in May. BMW would be more likely to consider an engine-supply deal rather than taking a team over like it had with Sauber, but with which team or teams it might collaborate remains a big question mark at this point.
As if that's not enough, Ford is said to be considering taking over Cosworth's aborted V6 turbo engine program to take both outfits back into the sport as well. Cosworth supplied F1 engines under the Ford banner for years, but returned under its own name for four seasons from 2010 through 2013 before shuttering its program to develop an engine to meet the new regulations adopted this season.
As Ford celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Mustang with the unveiling of the all-new sixth-gen design, one Chicago women can lay claim to a piece of Mustang history. According to CBS Chicago, Gail Wise was the first person in the US to buy a Mustang in 1964, and she did so two days before the car was even unveiled to the public.
Wise, then a 22-year-old teacher, went into the Chicago Ford dealership wanting to buy a convertible, and a salesperson ushered her over to car covered by a tarp. That car was a baby blue Mustang convertible, which she still owns today - along with the documentation. After sitting for almost 30 years and undergoing a full restoration, the car now looks to be in original condition. The report says that this $3,400 purchase could be worth anywhere between $100,000 and $250,000. While this worked out well for Mrs. Wise, we wouldn't recommend anyone going into a dark, back room of a dealership hoping to get a jump on the purchase of a 2015 Mustang.
