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.
Ford is recalling about 70,209 examples of the 2005-2008 Ford Escape Hybrid and the 2006-2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid because the cooling pumps for their hybrid systems could fail.
According to the company's defect notice, it's possible for the original "Motor Electronics Coolant (MEC) Pump" to wear out and fail, which would could cause the hybrid system to overheat. If this happens, the vehicle goes into a safety mode that takes away most or all of its power. However, braking and steering still operate normally. After cooling down, the affected models restart normally. The company says that it's not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this problem.
Ford will begin repairing the vehicles in late October, and dealers will be installing improved, brushless pumps on the affected models at no charge to owners. If drivers had their pumps fail before this recall, they can contact Ford for a possible reimbursement.

A 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder takes over where the old 2.0 left off, making 270 hp and 300 lb-ft.
Right now, around 23 percent of all Ford vehicles sold in the United States is a utility vehicle. By 2020, Ford expects that figure to increase all the way to 29 percent. Put simply, SUVs and crossovers are very big business at Ford. So, when it comes time to update the Explorer, Ford's original sport utility vehicle, you can be sure that a whole heck of a lot of effort goes into the process.
2012 is almost in the books and automakers are spending December gearing up for the 2013 auto show season, which tips off next month at the Detroit Auto Show. Traditionally, the latter opens up with the announcement of the North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year awards, and this year figures to be no different.
But up until this moment, we didn't know which six vehicles would be parked ahead of the stage as finalists, with executives and engineers waiting for the winners to be disclosed. Whittled down from October's "short list" of nominees (11 cars and 10 truck/utility vehicles), the finalists are as follows:
