An EXTREMELY rare 1963 Ford Fairlane Squire Wagon! This wagon has spent all of its life in Oregon and Washington State. I am the third owner. It comes with a 260 V-8 engine, power steering, power brakes, automatic transmission, roof rack, power rear window. It is all original for the exception of the passenger's fender. Everything is all there. Nearly all of the panel trim is there, but a couple pieces. I will be taking a picture that shows the layout of all of the pieces, so one can see what is there, and not there. The body is in great shape. Any rust is located in the rear cargo area and spare tire area. All of the glass is great with no cracks. The car does not start due to a missing gas tank(I know where there is one) and the previous owner lost the ignition key, so he would touch wires to start the car with an external fuel container. The car have been undercover all of it's life; from grandma's garage, to a carport in Hillsboro, OR, to my garage in Washington State. It has a replacement tailgate, but comes with the original. The upolstery, dash area, door panels are in very good shape. It does need a replacement steering wheel, and a new headliner. have owned it for 1 1/2 years, but have never attempted to start it. The engine turns free Everything under the hood is all original. I am in no hurry to sell, so no lowballers. I know how rare it is. I will be posting pictures on Wednesday, 2/20/2013.

Ford must be desperate to get itself ready for the beach this summer because it is really trying to get into shape. Shortly after unveiling the Lightweight Concept that cut the weight of a Fusion down to that of a Fiesta, it's now the rest of the line's turn for improvement. The company is wrapping up a 10-year research project aimed at developing next-gen automotive batteries to improve efficiency.

Ford claims that 70 percent of its lineup will have stop/start tech by 2017. The key to this massive proliferation is its new dual-battery system that combines a lithium-ion battery with a lead-acid one and regenerative braking. The setup works by harvesting braking energy and converting it to electricity. When the vehicle stops, the engine shuts off, but the Li-ion battery has enough juice to keep the accessories running. The engine starts up again as drivers take their foot off the brake. The layout would mean less wasted gas while idling. It's already available on Ford hybrids and is somewhat similar to the i-Eloop capacitor-based system from Mazda.
The bigger challenge is tuning the regenerative braking right. While hybrid drivers may be a little more adventurous, when it comes to getting a hang of regen braking, conventional buyers might not be so open-minded. The systems have a tendency to be a little grabby at first and then taper off at very low speeds. Ford needs to make sure it's just right to avoid turning off buyers.
Way back in August, we showed you a Ford concept for the Australian market called the Everest. Now, we can show you that work on the new Ranger-based SUV is well under way.

At this stage, it's still quite clearly a mule (note the misalignment of the front and rear doors), wearing the Ranger's front end and the rump of Ford's overseas Territory crossover. The wheelbase is shorter than a Ranger, according to our spy photographers, which strikes us as somewhat odd for a more passenger-oriented vehicle. Disc brakes should be fitted at all four corners, while the new SUV, which will almost certainly wear the Everest name, should sport a new rear suspension.
In terms of looks, we're expecting the Everest Concept to inform the appearance of the production model. Naturally, there will also be some interior tweaks, particularly around the dashboard, which is covered in these photos.
Good news out of Dearborn today, as Ford announced $3 billion in profit for the last quarter of 2013, a 90-percent increase over the same period of 2012. Net income for all of last year, meanwhile, jumped to $7.2 billion from $5.7 billion in 2012, while pre-tax profits sat at a decade-topping $6.9 billion for all of 2013.
The results of the substantial profit increases are bigger profit-sharing checks for UAW employees. How big? A record $8,800 on average for 47,000 UAW workers, making 2013 the biggest year for profit sharing in Ford history. In total, $414 million will be paid as part of the profit-sharing scheme.
Now, it should be pointed out that a fair portion of Ford's Q4 profits were due to tax benefits, totaling $2.1 billion, according to Automotive News. Total profits would have also been higher, had there not been a significant recall on the Escape, as well as plant issues in South America.
