this 63 falcon is the best quality I have seen, it is reported to be 22k actual miles, spending many years in storage, in calif, and indiana, and tulsa, ok, where I purchased it. I have no way to document the mileage. just saying what the previous owner said. he was suppose to know the history. have some paper work from the sixties, but nothing with mileage, except when car was purchased. the car runs and drives , and stops great. everything works, the motor is a 170 special, and fordamatic trans. ,all the heater control knobs that you pull for defrost, and heat, that on most cars, are hard to pull, or locked up, these work as should, all knobs are either new, or mint originals, including the tran lever knob. the parts that are new are fuel pump, and he gave me the original with the ford tag, new gas tank and sender, (not the cheap china one).fuel lines, carb kit. new springs all the way around, leafs and coil, new brakes, wheel cyls, lines, and master cyl. still has the generator, and he gave me another one, suppose to be the original, he put on new shocks, the ones that came off were the original ford ones. new door panels, front and rear, (sure are shiny with all the chrome inserts) new carpet, not sure if trunk pad is new or original, but looks new. new convt boot, still have the box. the dash paint is black and shiny, as new. the windows are all in good condition, roll up and down. the top is new, just been down maybe 3 times. I just purchased off ebay a set of the wire spinners, that were optional to this car, they are an excellent set, paid almost 400$ to get them here. (the pic I took was off center, my camera the screen is out) but the spinners are as new also. the bumpers, you can tell the chrome is getting thin, but they still wax up nice, and are straight, with no dings.some of the other chrome has a patina to it, but no pitting, except the fender spears has some. this car was original with back up lights, and I have the set of lenses that were on it, with the back up lights, the previous owner liked the others better.the paint on this car is shiny, and has no door dings, or scratches, this car is rust free, never had any, the paint is so good, that I drive it weekly, and keep it in storage, suppose to have never seen rain in 40 years. when I go somewhere, park it as far away as possible, so no door dents. it really is as new paint job. I have a few extra parts that go with it. going to take it next week for a under hood detail, all is clean and neet under there, just needs new stickers, which I bought, and maybe new paint on the air cleaner. the tires look like new, but suspect they are older, although no weather checking on them, this is a 4 lug 13" wheels, almost forgot, it does have a power top that works right. I have the original radio, he put this one in, has a good look and is fm, he also put in a new speaker, plus new kick panels with a speaker built in each, so you can hear the tunes with the top down, their is a cig burn in the drivers seat, from many years ago, I may have a person to put in a new panel, if needed, probably forgot a lot, send me questions, need a 500.00 deposit within 48 hours, and the balance in 7 days
Ten years ago, during the bright-eyed enthusiasm of the early 2000s and before the collective automotive industry did its best Titanic impression, we had the Ford GT. An everyman's supercar like there'd never been (remember, this was before 638-horsepower Corvettes were a thing), the GT arrived with a supercharged, 5.4-liter V8 that produced 550 horsepower and graced this retro-styled rocket with an easy, sub-four-second sprint to 60 miles per hour.
Equal to the GT's performance were its looks. Inspired by the GT40 racers that dominated Le Mans and bested Ferrari in the 1960s, the sleek, low, almost-reptilian look of the GT was the absolute pinnacle of the retro styling that so defined the early 2000s.
Crank and Piston put together a video celebrating the ten-year-old GT, arguing that Ford is a bit too busy with the next-gen Mustang, which turns 50 next week, to do it themselves. In the short clip, there is gratuitous engine noise and supercharger whine, not to mention scenes of the white-on-red GT prowling the deserts and streets of Dubai. It's a bit short, but very nicely shot. Scroll down, have a look and be sure to turn up those speakers before getting started.
Word coming in from across the pond has it that Ford is working on developing the business case to create a new Fiesta RS. The development is encouraged by the extremely positive reception the existing Fiesta ST has garnered to date, and the emergence of the above-pictured Fiesta RS WRC rally car, but it'll take more than goodwill to make a more extreme version a reality.
According to Auto Express, a new roadgoing Fiesta RS would almost certainly be based closely on the ST version, albeit with some vital differences. Its 1.6-liter turbo four would be increased from 180 horsepower to somewhere around 230 hp, and that powertrain would be accompanied by lightweight alloys inside blistered wheel arches, a stripped-out interior and possibly lightweight bodywork.
The vehicle's approval would reportedly require a strong business case in Europe, and not just in the UK where Ford hot hatches traditionally enjoy a strong following. It's unclear whether the Fiesta RS would potentially make the transatlantic voyage to American showrooms, but between it and the larger Focus RS, hopefully the Blue Oval wouldn't leave its home market out of the action altogether.
Each year since 2008, Ford has created a one-off Mustang to celebrate military aviation, and the cars have been auctioned off at the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Gathering of Eagles charity event to raise money to inspire the next generation of aviators. This year's charity car is the 2014 Ford Mustang GT US Air Force Thunderbirds Edition, which also helps celebrate 60 years of Thunderbirds air show excellence.
Of all the EAA charity cars, this Thunderbirds Edition is the most in depth. Painted to match the F-16 Tomcat fighter jets used by Thunderbirds, this Mustang also gets a widebody kit and 22-inch Forgiato wheels to go with the cockpit's Recaro bucket seats, rear-seat delete and modified navigation screen and gauge cluster. Even the Mustang's projector puddle lights have been changed to show an aircraft silhouette - rather than the Mustang's galloping horse logo - when the doors are open.
Themes for previous EAA charity cars include the Blue Angels, SR-71 Blackbird and the Red Tails as well as the F-22 Raptor-inspired AV8R and AV-X10 "Dearborn Doll" models.
