 For Sale is a 1955 Ford Customline 4 door project car. Ive owned this Ford for about 2 years. It has a clear Tennessee Title. Under the hood is the original Y block engine. It is the last year of 6 volt electrical systems in Ford cars. I have a new 6 volt battery, voltage regulator and coil. Radiator has been serviced. 3 speed manual trans with O/D. Not running but engine is mostly complete from what I can tell, have the fan, pulley, and air cleaner. My plan if I continue to work on this Customline is to try to get the original engine running, but these cars are easy to convert to 5.0L engine. Has surface rust as can be seen in pics and the outer rockers are rusted out, I have new rockers still in the box that I purchased here on Ebay. The floorpan and trunk floor are mostly solid. The floor needs a few small patches but overall in good shape. The dash is nice original and just recently noticed the ash tray is not in the dash in this pic but is in the car. Need cash to put into another project at this time. This could be a cool family project to drive to the cruise ins. Give me a call if interested in taking a closer look. 931-625-8104, located in Flintville TN 37335, 35 miles from Huntsville and 100 miles from Nashville.

Reflecting on the Ford GT on its 10-year anniversary

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 17:00:00 EST

Ten years ago, during the bright-eyed enthusiasm of the early 2000s and before the collective automotive industry did its best Titanic impression, we had the Ford GT. An everyman's supercar like there'd never been (remember, this was before 638-horsepower Corvettes were a thing), the GT arrived with a supercharged, 5.4-liter V8 that produced 550 horsepower and graced this retro-styled rocket with an easy, sub-four-second sprint to 60 miles per hour.
Equal to the GT's performance were its looks. Inspired by the GT40 racers that dominated Le Mans and bested Ferrari in the 1960s, the sleek, low, almost-reptilian look of the GT was the absolute pinnacle of the retro styling that so defined the early 2000s.
Crank and Piston put together a video celebrating the ten-year-old GT, arguing that Ford is a bit too busy with the next-gen Mustang, which turns 50 next week, to do it themselves. In the short clip, there is gratuitous engine noise and supercharger whine, not to mention scenes of the white-on-red GT prowling the deserts and streets of Dubai. It's a bit short, but very nicely shot. Scroll down, have a look and be sure to turn up those speakers before getting started.

Detroit's new fleet of donated police cars have safety issues [w/video]

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 16:30:00 EST

In a show of generosity in mid-August, Detroit's business leaders donated $8 million to the Police Department and Fire Department in order to buy 100 new police vehicles and 23 EMS ambulances. But now officers have discovered - and complained - that the police vehicles have glaring safety issues, Deadline Detroit reports. It is not made clear what models of the fleet vehicles - which include police versions of the Ford Taurus, the Chevrolet Caprice and the Dodge Charger - are affected by the safety issues.
Officers reportedly have complained that the Plexiglass partition separating front-seat officers and back-seat prisoners is easily breached, and that the front passenger seat is installed too close to the dashboard. Prisoners who manage to writhe out of their handcuffs can bend the Plexiglass and reach into the cockpit, and sitting too close to the dashboard can render airbags more dangerous and make officers more vulnerable to injury in a crash.
Mark Diaz, president of the Detroit Police Officers Association, received the complaints and reportedly said the vehicles would get safety updates addressing the issues. But Deadline Detroit reports that it checked some of the offending police cars and, as of the last few days, they hadn't been updated.

Ford looks back on 50 years of the Mustang in Detroit

Tue, 14 Jan 2014 17:28:00 EST

Ford has something special sitting in its booth here at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. In fact, it brought two special somethings in the form of the Ford Mustang 1 Concept that first saw the light of day in 1962 and the very first production Mustang that rolled off the production line in 1964.
These classic creations are sharing floor space with the brand-new 2014 Mustang in honor of the pony car's 50th Anniversary. Since Ford's latest 'Stang already made its auto show debut (at a number of locations, including Los Angeles), we think it's pretty cool that the Blue Oval did something special for its home-town show.
Check out both the Mustang 1 Concept and first production 1964.5 Mustang above and below.
