1967 Ford Fairlane 500xl on 2040-cars
Tipp City, Ohio, United States
1967 Ford Fairlane GT Clone/Tribute for sale or trade. This car is super solid and straight. As with every red car with mag wheels it gets compliments everywhere it is. New deep red paint job, less than 2 years old. What makes this car even more amazing than it already is, is the engine. Engine swap done extremely well. It looks like the car came was built with this engine. It has a 1992 Mustang 5.0 liter fuel injected engine, AOD transmission, Trick Flo top end with 24 pound injectors. Like new dual exhaust with Flowmaster 40 Series mufflers. It gives it that deep 5.0 Mustang sound. rearend completely rebuilt with 3:08 gears. New 17 inch Ridler wheels.
Couple things I would do to the car to really make it nice would be to redo the front seat. Has about a 2" separation at a seam on the top corner of the seat. Upholstery is also pulling apart on the bottom seat as well. You can't see it until you push the seat forward. I would also replace the transmission pan seal and the seal where the driveshaft fits into transmission tail. Doesn't leak terribly, just enough to be annoying. Car will probably need 2 rear tires but they will be fine for this cruise in season.
This car runs and drives like a new car. Old school cool car with newer fuel injected, computer controlled technology. ONLY trades I will consider will be 67-73 Camaro, 67-72 SHORTBED Chevy trucks. If your potential trade is a project, please be realistic and expect to bring a stack of cash along with it. This is not Gas Monkey Garage either so keep your CASH offers realistic as well. If shipment is required it is up to the buyer to arrange. I will make myself available to assist the shipper.
A non refundable deposit of 500.00 through Paypal will be required within 24 hours of purchase with the balance due upon pick-up of the vehicle. I have a clear Ohio state title in my name. I'm sure there will be questions, and you can call me at 937-623-3827 and ask for Dave.
The vehicle is also for sale locally, and I reserve the right to end the listing early if sold. Thank you.

It's no secret that MyFord Touch has had its share of problems since being introduced, but the most recent reliability survey from Consumer Reports shows just how much this infotainment system has affected Ford. Just two years ago, the automaker was in the top 10 for the institute's reliability rankings, but since then, it has tumbled to the second-lowest rung just above dead-last Jaguar. In addition to MyFord Touch, CR also attributes a handful of new products that have had issues right out of the gate.

Compiled from 1.2 million subscriber surveys, this year's auto reliability survey heavily favors Japanese automakers, with eight of the 10 spots hailing from Japan. Toyota brands grabbed the top three spots (Scion, Toyota and Lexus - in that order) with Mazda, Subaru, Honda and Acura filling the next four spots. The only non-Asian automaker cracking the top 10 was Audi at number eight.
Audi climbed a total of 18 spots from last year, and Cadillac and GMC round out this year's top gainers breaking into the top 15. Helping Cadillac's upward movement, the CTS Coupe was named the most reliable domestic car. Lincoln, Volvo and Chrysler join Ford on this year's biggest loser list.
Connected cars are coming en-masse. We know this much. How, though, remains something of an open question, especially as two of the world's largest tech companies are preparing to battle for control of your car's dashboard. On the one hand, we have Apple and its CarPlay system. And now, we know what Google has been working on with Auto Link.

Its new name is Android Auto, and yes, it's based off the Android architecture that is the primary challenger to Apple's iOS mobile operating system. Announced at Google's I/O conference today, Android Auto functions similarly to CarPlay - owners will need to plug their smartphones into their cars to access the full breadth of capability.
In Android Auto's case, that means a wealth of voice controls to limit distracted driving. Google's marquee apps will be available when the interface arrives in production models later this year, including Google Play Music, Google Maps and voice-activated texting and text playback. Meanwhile, developers will be able to begin designing custom apps for the new system via an upcoming software development kit.
Whether fitted with soft or hard folding lids, today's droptops are better than ever for year-round motoring. Advancements in power top mechanisms, sealing, aerodynamics, structural rigidity, rollover safety and creature comforts like heated and cooled seats mean that modern convertibles are more versatile and better to drive than ever before. Yet the segment's sales took a dive during the recession and haven't come back, Automotive News reports.
Part of that is because automakers are looking at today's more sensible buyers and simply not developing as many new models, and that lack of fresh iron is curbing sales. AN cites R.L. Polk data which notes that only about one percent of new vehicles registered in the US last year had tops that folded. Back in 2009, it was 1.4 percent, and it was 2 percent in 2006. All-in, some 151,636 convertibles were registered in 2012. That's more units more than were registered in each of the past three years, but the market has also grown as the economy has picked up speed, and as a percentage of new vehicles purchased, convertible sales are lagging.
Thus far in 2013, the Ford Mustang is America's top-selling convertible, with 6,421 units registered through the end of April, followed by its rival, the Chevrolet Camaro, at 4,751 units. The Volkswagen Beetle isn't far behind, with 4,305, but from that point, it's a steep drop off to the fourth-place Mercedes-Benz SL-Class and its 2,380 sales.
