This is my '67 Ford Fairlane 500 GT clone. It has a 351 Windsor, lots of chrome, that was rebuilt with a mild cam, headers, aluminum intake and 4 bbl carburetor. The engine and C4 automatic transmission are a matching drive train out of a '71 Mustang. The transmission, with B&M shifter and shift kit, was rebuilt to stock specs 1 year ago and shifts perfectly. The car is fun to drive with power steering, power front disc brakes and AM/FM CD radio. The disc brake booster was rebuilt 4 years ago. I've had the car up to 75 mph and it drives smoothly with no shake, shimmy or pulling. It has true dual exhaust with aftermarket mufflers, although I don't know the brand, I can say it has a nice deep throaty tone. The car starts right up and drives impressively. The bright red interior was redone 4 years ago and is in excellent condition. Glass is very good, no cracks or chips, and the windows roll up and down easily. All electric items (wipers, lights, radio, turn signals, gas gauge etc.) work great. The body is rust free and was repainted also 4 years ago. The paint job is good "driver" quality and is fine for local show and shine car shows but would need to be refinished for serious showing. The car does not leak in the passenger or trunk areas and does not have that "musty smell" many older cars have. There are a few "blisters" over the left rear wheel well that can be ground off and a small area on the trunk lid needs attention. The Tiger Paw ASC radials are mounted on 14" Magnum 500 wheels and are almost new and have lots of tread left. I refitted the entire power steering system with new hoses and pump about 18 months ago. New Heavy Duty front coil springs and shocks were installed a year ago. The rear leaf springs were also replaced a year ago with new springs that offer a 3" lift and new shocks.Headlight and tail light bezels were rechromed and polished . Included with car I have new O.E.M door handles, trunk boards, plaid trunk mat, door scuff plates, a very nicely reconditioned complete bumper jack and an extra Magnum 500 wheel for a spare. Bumpers are in good condition but would need to rechromed for serious showing. I've had the car for 3 years and I'm preparing to retire and have other non-automotive projects to work on. Thanks for looking. Vehicle sold "as is" with no stated or implied warranty.

When one speaks of sporty and fun-to-drive utility vehicles, few would put the Ford Explorer in the same category as the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, BMW X5 or Porsche Cayenne. Yet, with just a few reservations, I'd toss the new-for-2013 Ford Explorer Sport close to that arena for consideration.
Mon, 20 Jan 2014 18:03:00 EST
As a recap, the sportiest of Explorers is fitted with Ford's twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter Ecoboost V6, making 365 horsepower and 350 pound feet of torque. Acceleration is brisk (figure about 7 seconds to 60 miles per hour), as power goes to all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. Contributing to its more athletic demeanor are larger front brakes, a sport-tuned suspension, chassis upgrades, quicker steering ratio and a more aggressive wheel/tire package. Cosmetically, the Sport is distinguished by its blacked-out lights, black trim and noticeable lack of chrome (with the exception of the door handles).
Ford recently handed me the keys to a Ruby Red Metallic Explorer Sport. Rather than mindlessly drive the big seven-passenger all-wheel drive hauler in soccer mom circles around Los Angeles, I loaded up my family and embarked on a long weekend road trip to Yosemite National Park.
Back in July, a mid-year study from YouGov found Ford to have higher brand perception than any other company in the US. While Ford failed to top the year-end study, it still has plenty to brag about. The final BrandIndex report shows that online retail giant Amazon edged out Ford for the top ranking, while Subway, the History Channel and Lowe's rounded out the top five spots.

For Ford, it's still an improvement from sixth place in the 2012 study, and, more importantly, it dominated other automakers in terms of brand perception with a clear advantage over Toyota, Honda, Chevy and Volkswagen. To determine how well - or not so well - a brand is perceived, YouGov uses a Buzz score that asks respondents whether they've "heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth" and whether it was positive or negative. While it isn't clear how many respondents were included, YouGov does point out that Ford had a strong presence in social media, advertising and newsworthy toward the end of the year.

There's no doubt that Ford is taking a risk in producing the body of its upcoming new F-150 pickup truck in aluminum. What is up for debate, however, is whether aluminum was a wise risk to take in the first place. Wards Auto took the opportunity to poll some experts on the subject of aluminum versus steel in the automotive sector, with somewhat unsurprising results.
Richard Schultz, a project consultant at Ducker Worldwide, which bills itself as "a leading aluminum industry consultant (though they also deal in steels), suggests that the potential drawbacks to aluminum - higher costs, lower supply - aren't really impediments to the auto industry's increased acceptance of the lightweight metal.
Similarly, Randall Scheps, global automotive marketing director for Alcoa, a massive aluminum producer, counters claims that aluminum is less safe for vehicle occupants, suggesting that the use of aluminum can actually increase safety as it could potentially allow for larger vehicles with more crush space than steel.
