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.
Just when you thought you'd figured the fullsize truck market out, Ford goes and throws us a massive curve ball with the 2015 F-150. The big headline news aren't tow or payload ratings, though we're sure those figures will be fully competitive if not class leading, they haven't yet been announced. Instead, the big headline news Ford is highlighting are the truck's new aluminum-intensive structure and 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine.
And with good reason - all that aluminum means that Ford was able to cut a massive 700 pounds from the truck's curb weight. That is going to cause all sorts of great things to happen to the 2015 F-150's driving dynamics, performance and fuel efficiency, not to mention its ability to haul heavy loads. For those customers worried about the strength of aluminum versus the more conventional steel, Ford is quick to point out that many military vehicles, such as the HMMWV and Bradley Fighting Vehicle, use a very similar sort of aluminum alloy in their construction.
It's also worth mentioning that the backbone, a fully boxed ladder frame, is hewn from high-strength steel. Ford says "2015 Ford F-150 is the strongest and most durable F-150 ever," for what it's worth, claiming that "torture tested" in labs and in the real world for more than 10 million miles. What's more, the truck, in disguised form, completed all 883 miles of the Baja 1000.
There have been many great car commercials over the years, but is it possible to define the best? Well, Ad Week recently took a crack at it by rating the top commercials of the year by looking at their view counts on YouTube, but Auto Express took a more democratic approach by putting the decision to a vote. Just after Thanksgiving, Auto Express came up with a list of the 20 popular commercials, and it tasked its readers with choosing the winner for the best car ad of all time. The winner? Honda's 2003 commercial for its then-new European Accord titled "The Cog."
While the ad never aired in the US, most car people have surely seen the impressive Rube Goldberg-style spot. In fact, the only commercial on this list that we saw on US television was the Volkswagen ad "The Force," but many of the others have become viral videos, including transforming and dancing Citroën C4. Of the 19 other commercials that vied for the title of best ad of all time, only the Ford Puma "Steve McQueen" commercial gave Honda a run for its advertising money.
