Here is a 1956 Ford Sunliner convertible project, rough and rusty, including a super solid, rust free AZ 1956 Ford Town Sedan. Make a nice '56 Sunliner from the two cars, or have two really good parts cars. The Sunliner was originally Colonial White over Fiesta Red, with Fiesta Red/White vinyl interior and a black convertible top. There is a yblock in it - not sure if it is a 292 or a 312. Has a Fordomatic auto trans still in it. Most convertible components are still present in the car. Seat springs are partially there but pretty rough - usable for a pattern. Has a decent set of roof bows on it - car steers and rolls. I can't find any data plates on the car, but the VIN numbers should be stamped on the frame front and rear. I will have a look to see if I can find them. There is no title on this car.


Included is a rust free 1956 Ford Fairlane Town Sedan. Looks to have a 292 yblock mated to a Fordomatic auto trans. The sheet metal on this car is super solid. It also has Master Guide power steering, and a T&C radio in it. I don't have the grill or park lamp housing for the car. Has a data plate on it, but I do not have a title for this car. 

I won't part these cars out - will only sell complete. They are also listed for sale outside of Ebay, so the auction here may end at any time. If you have any questions, drop me a line here or contact Greg @ 1-250-640-6479.

Ford's Mulally makes shortlist for Microsoft CEO

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 10:43:00 EST

Ford CEO Alan Mulally has made the short list to take over tech giant Microsoft, lending further credence to rumors that the 68-year-old former Boeing exec would ditch Dearborn and move to Redmond.
The report comes from Reuters, which claims that alongside Mulally, former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop and three candidates from within Microsoft are on the short list to succeed Steve Ballmer at the company's helm, although previous reports claim the Ford exec is the number one candidate. Mulally is currently working without a contract, although Bill Ford seems to believe that he isn't likely to depart. Despite this belief, Ford was quoted just last month talking about the depth of talent on the Blue Oval's executive team.
"There is no change from what we announced last November. Alan remains fully focused on continuing to make progress on our One Ford plan. We do not engage in speculation," said Ford spokesman Jay Cooney.

The fascinating forgotten civil defense history of Mister Softee trucks

Mon, 26 Aug 2013 16:29:00 EST

Hemmings came across an interesting article from the Throwin' Wrenches blog about the intersection of ice cream, cars and civic duty in America's late 1950s. In particular, it focuses on the Mister Softee trucks, which criss-crossed neighborhoods of the eastern US serving ice cream. Looking past the ultra-durable vehicles used - heavy-duty Ford-based chassis, for what it's worth - the article delves into some deeper national-security territory.
See, Mister Softee truck owners were voluntary members of the Civil Defense, thanks to all the useful stuff (potable water, generators, freezers and fridges) that the machines carried with them for serving ice cream. Click over to Throwin' Wrenches for the full run down of how Mister Softee would have stepped in to help fight if the Cold War ever turned a little hotter.

Ford hybrids getting update to improve fuel economy

Tue, 16 Jul 2013 20:00:00 EST

Ford has announced that it is introducing "calibration updates designed to improve on-road fuel economy for owners of the 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid, 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid and 2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid."
We can speculate that these changes are at least due in part to lawsuits over mileage claims of hybrid vehicles. The automaker is enhancing 2013 models starting in August by raising their electric cruising speed to 85 miles per hour from 62 mph, optimizing the use of active grille shutters and the climate control system, shortening the engine warm-up period by 50 percent and reducing electric fan speed to minimize the fan's energy consumption.
It bears mentioning that Ford is doing pretty well in the US electrified vehicle market this year. The company claims to have grown its share in the segment by 12 points to 16 percent while taking a high number of Toyota Prius trade-ins in the process. Conversely, Toyota has experienced a five-percent drop in new-Prius sales over the same period. Additionally, Ford states that it has increased its share of the US vehicle market by one percent this year, more than any full-line automaker.
