Up for your consideration is my 62 Ford Falcon Pro Street Project. I got the car from my in-laws with plans to finish it out, but I have other projects I would like to get to so this one needs to go. It has a Pro built (18K in receipts) chassis which consists of square tubing from the front that joins to round tubing at the firewall. Roll cage is swept at the doors for easy in access. Also has really nice sheetmetal work as well. It is set up for a small block Chevrolet and 400 turbo. It has a 9 in Ford in the rear and a 3-link rear with coilovers at all 4 corners. Mustang 2 front end with manual steering. Also has disc brakes all the way around.
Glastek 4" cowl hood and front and rear bumpers
Flaming river steering column
Master cylinder with custom brake pedal
Steel fuel cell with GM sending unit
31 spline Strange axles
Coil over shock front end mustang kit and all rear suspension is new
Weld Pro Star wheels and Mickey Thompson street tires. Skinnies out front and 29x15.5x15 in the rear
Good used trunk with no rust (one dent)
Good front fenders with a little surface rust, no "rot through"
Grill and headlight rings
Several sets of front and rear window moldings
Radio delete plate
Right and left doors that need minimal body work
I am sure there are some things I am forgetting. The car has had rear quarters installed and the only other rust aside from just light surface rust from sitting in my garage is a little at the upper firewall under the top of the front fenders. The car is set up really nice and I am taking a major hit at my reserve price. I have around 25K in the car like it sits and all the work up to this point is very nicely done. Dave Hunt Racecraft here in Virginia did all the work on the chassis and frame. The front bench seat was also shortened to fit inside the door bars. I do not have any of the glass other than the glass that is in the used doors and I have not checked their condition. This is a great start to a nice Falcon and I am sure the buyer would be very happy to own it. I just don't have the time to finish everything I have going on right now. Any questions at all please ask them and I would prefer the buyer come take a look at the car to see what they are getting. Thanks for looking. Clear title on the car as well.
Details about the all-new, 2015 Ford Mustang continue to leak out. In fact, at this point, it's more of a stream than a drip. Its option prices are already available, and now the full ordering guide is on the web for all of the trims thanks to the Mustang 6G forum. Ford is rapidly running out of secrets to keep about its new sports coupe.
The 21-page guide can be perused in the gallery below and contains all of the standard features, colors, options codes, descriptions. Generally everything you might want to know about the 'Stang is there, other than its price or power. It even shows off the available wheel designs.
The guide finally gives away the contents of the Performance Package for the EcoBoost and GT trims. The EcoBoost's package includes: A larger rear sway bar, new chassis tuning, larger brake rotors, 19-inch black wheels, retuned driver assistance systems, an aluminum dash panel, added gauge pack, 3.55 limited slip rear differential, larger radiator, heavy-duty front springs and spoiler delete. When the options pricing leaked, it indicated the package would cost $1,995. If that is the case, it seems like quite a deal.
You've no doubt already pored over our first drive of the 2015 Ford Mustang, where author Jonathon Ramsey proclaimed that "this new car shames the old, redefines the model and gallops far ahead of anything else in the segment." And following Ramsey's first stint behind the wheel of Ford's new coupe, we sent him back out with another 'Stang to capture some of these same impressions over a backdrop of the car moving quickly along gorgeous California canyon roads.
But this also gave our author and editors time to read through the hundreds of comments left on that original Mustang review. You readers are indeed a vocal bunch, and one particular comment about how the automotive media is so willing to bash an outgoing car as soon as the new one arrives really caught our attention. In this video, Ramsey stands by his written text, saying the new Mustang is "massively better than the one it replaces," and in doing so, addresses your comments while providing more insight into just how good the Ford truly is.
We won't spoil the rest for you. Check out the feature video above, and as always, leave us your thoughts in the Comments section below.
Ford is recalling an estimated 64,869 examples of the 2014-2015 Fusion, Fusion Energi and Fusion Hybrid in North America because the key can be removed when the vehicle isn't in Park under certain conditions. Specifically, the campaign covers 56,479 units in the US, 6,048 in Canada and 2,342 in Mexico, according to the automaker's tally on November 11.
Ford says a programming problem in the instrument cluster means that the key can be removed 30 minutes after the ignition is turned off, even if the transmission is not in Park. The situation where this could happen seems quite limited, and the company is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue. However, the fault puts the vehicle out of compliance with federal regulations covering theft protection and rollaways, and must be repaired.
The fix is easy: Ford will reprogram the instrument cluster at no cost to consumers. According to Ford spokesperson Kelli Felker in an email to Autoblog, "We will notify customers the week of January 5th." Scroll down to read Ford's announcement.
