hello! this is the last of my project type cars. i have been moving a number of them in the last year and half. this is a great 59 wagon that be restored to original or make a great rat rod wagon. honest barn find here in ohio but was driven from 0klahoma in the early 80s. it has sat quite awhile, needs total restore but great bones and very complete except for minor things. first off let me say importantly that the car will need floor pans obviously. but i have taken much time to scrutinize all the rust issues on the car, and the outer body,doors, rockers and inner rockers,floor supports,core support,rear wheel wells and lips, inner and outer quarters are all incredibley good. it has one small rust area in the spare tire well at the forward dip, see pics. there is minor rust out under the rear seat reall just needs minor patching.that pont forward is what needs replaced as you can see in the pics. the supports where the pans set are excellent front and back, and where the pans meet the inner rockers are also perfect. it will be very easy to make your own for a quick job or lay new ones in and will be hard to even notice. the tailgate is excellent. the hood looks good from the outside but typical bottom lip is going.battery box area rusted but overall very nice inner fenders, air ducts etc. the interior is still pretty nice, typical front seat, but very respectable door panels, this is a 9 passenger and the jump seats are super nice. the bottom of the extra seat is there but the top is missing. even the original cardboard headliner isnt too bad. decent tinted glass all the way around,crack in left vent and left rear side. roll up and down great. the the right door has obvious damage but should be pulled out with out major effort. 332 auto condition unkown. pulled the plugs and oiled her up, does turn over by hand, at the least the trans stays in park very well i think f you had a rust running 59 4 door would be a good way to do the car, or a late model crown vic etc. it can go rat rod on a cheap budget as the outer body is fine as is.or a good car to restore to original. the mettalic blue was sprayed right over top the original wedgewood blue and is cooly flaking off in various places. there appears to be no previous body work any where. only known missing parts is hubcaps,wiper motor and air cleaner that i see. the sill plates where bad. ask any questions you have. this will make a neat car, the real main effort is the floor pans. will help with loading here. overseas buyers fine. 0 and lower negatives contact first or i will cancel bids if i smell a rat. thanks!
Way back in August, we showed you a Ford concept for the Australian market called the Everest. Now, we can show you that work on the new Ranger-based SUV is well under way.
At this stage, it's still quite clearly a mule (note the misalignment of the front and rear doors), wearing the Ranger's front end and the rump of Ford's overseas Territory crossover. The wheelbase is shorter than a Ranger, according to our spy photographers, which strikes us as somewhat odd for a more passenger-oriented vehicle. Disc brakes should be fitted at all four corners, while the new SUV, which will almost certainly wear the Everest name, should sport a new rear suspension.
In terms of looks, we're expecting the Everest Concept to inform the appearance of the production model. Naturally, there will also be some interior tweaks, particularly around the dashboard, which is covered in these photos.
The product portfolio at Lincoln may seem a bit sparse at the moment, but if a report is to be believed, new products are on the way. TheDetroitBureau.com spoke with sources at Lincoln and Ford, who claimed the American premium brand is working on, perhaps more than one, rear-wheel-drive vehicle.
Lincoln would likely platform-share with the next-generation Ford Mustang to develop those RWD offerings in the early going. Moving forward, the report indicates that Lincoln could take the lead on other rear-drive projects in the future. As the RWD architecture continues to take shape, "most or all" of the front-wheel-drive portfolio will also be offered with all-wheel drive as an option, ala Audi.
But wait, there's more! The report also suggests that a replacement for the full-size MKS is on the way, as well as a new Navigator and a luxury crossover based on the current Ford Escape.
Ford is kickin' it old school at the Shanghai Motor Show for 2013 with a new Escort Concept - "a name that stirs up thoughts of basic, affordable transportation rather than great driving dynamics or bold design" as we said in our initial preview of the small C-segment sedan. Or, as Ford puts it, "Customers in China described seeking a vehicle that is stylish - but not one that is arrogant or pretentious." Potato, potahto...
It's an interesting amalgam of design notes with Ford's recent and stylish hexagonal grille up front, flanked by some pretty busy LED light clusters and chrome-trimmed air intakes at the lower extremities of the fascia, but the Escort Concept is not altogether unattractive. Besides its external appearance, we really don't have much information to report - Ford has not yet hinted at what may be powering this little machine, but we'd expect something with four cylinders and less that 2.0 liters of displacement sending a modest number of horses to the front tires.
It probably goes without saying, but we don't expect to see this Escort make its way to the United States, since we already have the Focus and the Fiesta battling it out in the econobox segment. That said, it's very likely to spawn a production model that will roll out here in China and in other developing market where multiple C-segment entries are becoming increasingly common.
