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.

Lee Iacocca oversaw the birth of the Ford Mustang back in the 1960s, rocketing the new pony car nameplate into million-unit sales territory in its initial go-round and cementing its place in the history books. Thus, we were immediately drawn to this latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage, in which the funnyman hosts Iacocca for a look at the origins of Ford's most iconic sports car. The legendary auto exec is looking notably more frail than when we last saw him, but if we're being asked around as a video guest when we're 89 years old, we'll consider that evidence of a life well lived.

Serial No. 0001 is on hand for the occasion for Jay's romp through history, as is the historic Mustang 1 showcar from 1962. Of course, the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang GT (in prototype form) makes an appearance at the end of the episode with chief engineer Dave Pericak, as well. Get some, below.
Pots and kettles, glass houses and stones - that's a little of what we appear to have going on in the European car market. New reports say that that three European automakers have registered their opposition to a loan deal that PSA/Peugeot-Citroën is working on with the French government. Peugeot's finance arm, Banque PSA Finance, is struggling with its debts and has been downgraded by Moody's to its lowest investment-grade classification, one step above junk. This makes it more expensive for a potential buyer to finance a car through Peugeot. The last thing Peugeot needs is more difficulty selling cars in the tough European market, and the situation will only worsen if the bank's credit worthiness takes another hit.

A deal being worked on would have the French government offer €7 billion ($9B U.S.) in bonds to guarantee the bank's loans, which would give the institution some breathing room to manage its debts and lower its interest rates. Outside of that, a group of banks would provide other, non-guaranteed loans to the bank to further help its position. In exchange for state help, though, the government wants seats on Peugeot's board for worker representatives and a government liaison, along with factory and worker guarantees. The Peugeot family would maintain control of the company.
So what we have is government assistance being provided to a car company's finance arm, akin to the way General Motors' GMAC (now Ally Financial) and Chrysler Financial got help in their time of need. What we also have is Ford and Renault, and Germany's State of Lower Saxony, the second-largest shareholder in Volkswagen, voicing their concern about the proposal, because they say it could create an unfair competitive advantage for Peugeot. Everyone in Europe's down market is fighting for every sale, and if Peugeot gets help to keep its auto loan costs down, it figures to help buyers choose Peugeot or Citroën.
Whether it's lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring or automatic emergency braking, most of the electronic systems we see emerging on new vehicles focus on safety. But there are some there just for enthusiasts. We're talking about systems like automatic throttle blipping for perfect downshifts, or launch control to get that textbook acceleration from a standstill. But the latest system could prove just the opposite of the latter.
Although it has given us most of the details, Ford is still keeping certain elements of its new Mustang secret. But emerging reports may have the skinny on one system which Ford is trying is darnedest to keep under its hat for the time being. That, according to unnamed sources cited by Motor Authority, is burnout control.
The system is reportedly designed to help novices execute the perfect smokey burnout - sort of like launch control, but specifically the opposite. The system could, according to elaborative speculation, lock the front brakes while spooling up the engine to optimal revolutions before dumping (or indicating the driver to do dump) the clutch. A cloud of tire smoke and a long pair of skid marks would then ensue.
