Up for sale is my 56 Ford Victoria - I have owned this car for close to 20 years.

Body/Paint- Paint is now 1 year old- paid 8K for paint....body is very straight.....this is an original CA car...body panels are original....no rust replacement....all original metal....Car is painted 2012 Mustang Red/Black....as I do drive the car- you will find a road chip here or there but over all in excellent shape as the car is garage kept under a cover - all emblems have been shaved

Chrome/Stainless- Very nice shape- car was built as a driver so you are going to find the normal imperfections here and there- but definitely presentable at car shows- if you are looking for a 100 point trailer queen where every piece of chrome and stainless is absolutely perfect- this is not your car- bumpers are smoothed

suspension/ brakes- front end/ steering box completely rebuilt 2000 miles ago- you can drive the car with one finger down the freeway- jamco lowering springs front and rear, Granada spindles and front disc brakes- also went to the larger station wagon sway bar so car handles very nicely  

Motor- 428Cj Edelbrock aluminum heads/10.1 compression/Crane Cam (over 540 lift so has a nice beefy idle) Edelbrock 427 intake manifold/ custom build headers and a custom one off MagnaFlow Exhaust System built by MagnaFlow (I work for MagnaFlow) Just the custom built headers and exhaust alone at any shop would be easily 2500 worth of work- The motor was put together by a friend of the family who used to build FE motors back in the 60s for drag boats- anyone familiar with Cobra Jet motors will tell you someone either knows how to build a Cobra Jet motor or they don't- and this motor was built right - transmission is a build C6 with a 2500 stall converter - with the huge Griffin radiator/ extra electric fans- car runs cool - stays right around 180-190 in 90 degree weather

Car is a definite sleeper!

 

Interior- nice shape- again car is not a trailer queen - but it has some nice touches.....autometer tach/ temp gauge down below B&M shifter- also went to a custom steering wheel which resembles the original wheel but is much smaller- aftermarket radio looks like the original one but has IPOD hook up

This is a great car- I hate to sell it but I need the money so I can go back to school and get my Masters Degree. Car was built to drive- but is still more then nice enough to drive into any car show pop the hood and grab attention as you see a ton of 55-56-57 Chevys but never seem to see any Fords

Please feel free to give me a call with any questions Brent -949-633-0946

Amazon looking to bring Kindle to your next car?

Mon, 25 Feb 2013 08:45:00 EST

Maybe so. The online retailer and digital media monolith recently announced the Amazon Cloud Player, an application for Ford Sync that allows users to stream media from their Amazon Cloud account directly to a Ford vehicle. This foray into automotive technology got the minds at Gigaom.com thinking about what could be next for Amazon. As Kevin Fitchard writes, the logical step is to make audio versions of your Kindle library selections available in your car. As he points out, Amazon has already laid the groundwork for such a move.
Amazon pulled the sheets back on Whispersync for Voice last year. The tech pairs ebooks with an Audible book for a small extra fee, allowing users to either read along with a narrator or switch between audio and text versions on command. Fitchard says it wouldn't be some great leap to apply the same principles to a car, where voice recognition software would allow users to pause or select chapters without ever taking their eyes off of the road.
It all sounds just fine to us, but Amazon hasn't said a thing about such a move. Still, we wouldn't be surprised to see the company come down this road in the near future just the same.

Mustang pinball game will feature art by Ford GT designer

Fri, 13 Dec 2013 08:45:00 EST

To celebrate 50 years of Mustang, Ford and Stern Pinball are collaborating on a new pinball machine that will feature the muscle car in all its glory, Polygon reports. Even better, Camilo Pardo, the guy who designed the Ford GT, will provide art for the table; Tanner Foust, Top Gear USA host and professional driver, will handle narrating duties; and a Sony Music soundtrack spanning five decades will provide the tunes.
"The Mustang is one of the most iconic, American cars ever made... What better way to celebrate 50 years of Mustang than with the launch of the Ford Mustang pinball game?" says Stern Pinball CEO Gary Stern.
Watch the promotional trailer for the upcoming Mustang pinball machine below, which will have to hold you over until pricing and availability are announced in early 2014.

2014 Ford Transit Connect configurator fires up for the whole family

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 08:44:00 EST

The second-generation Ford Transit Connect is almost upon us, and to get work- and family-oriented customers ready for the new model, Ford has launched a configurator for both van and wagon versions. Both body styles will go on sale early next year with the base TC Van starting at $22,000, but customers wanting side windows and rear seats will have to pony up at least an extra $3,000 for the TC Wagon.
Ford is definitely looking to get back into the family van business with the 2014 TC Wagon offering three available trim levels, two engines and the choice between five- and seven-passenger seating (with two wheelbases). Like many recent Ford products, a fancy Titanium trim level is offered, and opting for it will cost you - this trim starts at $29,000, and we were able to spec it out with a panoramic roof, tow package and front and rear parking sensors for a little over $33,000.
Businesses looking for a small, fuel-efficient work vehicle now get more options on the TC Van like the choice of split, hinged rear doors or a liftgate (with or without glass), a long wheelbase ($1,000) and Ford's CrewChief vehicle tracking system ($925). Fully loaded, this van is still costs less than the fullsize E-Series. On both Van and Wagon, the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine is a $795 option, but it is only offered on short-wheelbase models and Ford has yet to release power or fuel economy specs yet. With the standard 2.5-liter engine, the TC will get up to 21 miles per gallon in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
