Will lot drive with fuel, a little brake work, and trans linkage hooked up. Can hear run. Rebuilt 312 (.030 over) starts right up. All bright work is there, with many parts doubled. Top will operate by jumping it. All seats are there along with new red and white vinyl interior kit. Will come with extra wiring harnesses,solenoids, two tops, two trunk lids, and many other doubles. Body is nice but has had lower quarters installed, will need more body work to ready for final paint. Floor pan looks ok, doors shut nice, body lines ok. As pictures show jams cut in. Look at the pictures, but looks better in person. Perfect for retro/restore (ever see one??) or back to stock. Please call me if needed with questions Bob 330 322 9552... I will try to answer your questions or get back to you after I get the info. Will help load car as needed with a little notice. Please be serious as this could make someone a nice car. Pay Pal $500.00 down within 24 hrs. of auction end, balance cash or CLEARED bank check to remove car. NO RESERVE. Thanks for looking....
Ford deserves credit for being a front-runner in offering advanced infotainment technology with its Sync and MyFord Touch systems, but continued consumer complaints over its confusing touchscreen interface and capacitive controls has made the automaker relent. The Wall Street Journal reports that physical buttons and knobs for controlling tuning and volume will be coming back to Ford vehicles equipped with the controversial infotainment system.
The 2013 F-150 with MyFord Touch gives us a glimpse of what the new layout with buttons and knobs might look like, as Ford says a similar balance of touch screen capability and buttons/knobs are what's being planned for future models. And, while capacitive controls have no fans in the halls of Autoblog, many of Ford's models with MyFord Touch do have a large physical knob for adjusting volume with integrated buttons for tuning and advancing tracks, though most of those are models with the optional upgraded Sony Audio system. Lincoln models with MyLincoln Touch, however, feature only capacitive controls for all stereo and climate functions.
Despite receiving enough complaints to throw buttons and knobs back into the mix (a move that reminds us of BMW's iDrive trajectory, among others), Ford reports that Sync and MyFord Touch have still been sold on 79 percent of its 2013 model year vehicles, a number it claims is double the rate that Honda and Toyota are getting for their infotainment systems. Ford also states that owners who do opt for the duo of technologies are more satisfied with overall vehicle quality than those who don't have it.

16 of the 23 new launches will be for the North American market.
2014 is shaping up to be a big year for Ford Motor Company, as it's announced an onslaught of 23 new global product launches which will help create 5,000 new jobs in the US. As part of the new product push, three more manufacturing plants will be opened.
The signs have come down and retail production ended back in October of 2010. Now, the very last Mercury model has rolled off the assembly line. This last Mercury somewhat fittingly takes the form of a Grand Marquis reporting for fleet duty. It was built at the St. Thomas plant in Ontario, Canada, which is the same facility that continues to produce the Ford Crown Victoria and Lincoln Town Car for fleet and livery duty.
St. Thomas' days are numbered, however, as the factory is slated to close on August 31. When it goes, the Panther platform is likely to follow. So long, and thanks for all the fish memories.
