This Ford was purchased new by Genero Forte at the Vincent Montone dealership in Hazleton, Pennsylvania on March
21st, 1959, and it remained in the original owner's family until 2014. The car was always stored indoors, and has
covered just 30,333 miles since new. It is in remarkable original condition, and retains 60% of the factory
applied paint, as well as the original seat covers, door panels, carpeting, and floor mat. The interior surfaces
show minimal wear, constant with the miles, and the entire car feels like a well maintained two year old
automobile. All of the switches, windows, and latches feel solid, with almost no play or wear. The steering wheel
retains it's original white paint, with a few spots just beginning to wear through after 30,000 miles. I have
inspected this car thoroughly, and every part of it confirms the low mileage and excellent care it has received
since day one. The floors and trunk are solid, and still retain their original paint under the carpeting and trunk
mat. The door panels are in superb condition, with virtually no wear on the armrests, and no warping on the
panels. All of the windows crank up and down smoothly, and the side glass and windshield are original with the
Ford scripts. The weatherstripping is all original, and is still soft, retained by the factory brush-on glue. The
top well is excellent, along with the original top boot (not shown in the pictures, but included with purchase).
The power top works very well, with no known leaks in the hydraulics. All of the lights are functional, and the
horn and wipers both work. The heater works well, along with the original six tube AM radio. This car is equipped
with the desirable four barrel Thunderbird 352 V8, which was the largest engine available in the Galaxie for 1959.
It also has an automatic transmission, but manual steering and brakes. This car was stored for many years, and
returned to the road in 2007 by the original owner's family. The engine was completely rebuilt at this time, and
receipts for the machine work and installation go with the car

Fields 'required' to use private aircraft, could make $5.25M as Ford CEO this year

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 13:57:00 EST

Mark Fields' travels on the friendly skies will soon be a relatively personal affair, as the new CEO at Ford will be required to resume air travel via the company's private planes. Fields caught plenty of flak in 2007 for flying on the company's dime to visit his family in Florida. He's since flown commercial.
According to Ford spokesperson Susan Krusel, who spoke to Bloomberg, Fields (pictured above right, with Bill Ford, Jr. at center and Alan Mulally at left) will switch to private travel "for safety and to maximize his availability for company business." In addition to his new travel arrangements, the 53-year-old exec's salary and bonuses have been revealed.
Regulatory filings by Ford revealed that Fields, whose first day in the big chair was July 1, will receive a base salary this year of $1.25 million and he'll be eligible for $3.5 million in bonuses, both of which are lower than Alan Mulally's $2 million salary and $5.88 million in bonuses received last year. That's also lower than General Motors CEO Mary Barra's alleged $1.6-million salary and considerably less than Sergio Marchionne's $3.19-million fixed salary from Fiat. Despite falling short of other CEOs, Fields' new pay still represents a 33-percent increase over his pay as Chief Operating Officer.

Toyota again claims Corolla outsold Focus worldwide

Wed, 10 Apr 2013 16:23:00 EST

Toyota isn't convinced the Ford Focus was the best-selling nameplate globally last year. Bloomberg reports that for the second time in seven months, both Toyota and Ford are laying claim to the title. Ford cites R.L. Polk & Co. data that says the automaker moved some 1.02 million Focus models in 2012 compared to just 872,774 Toyota Corolla units. But Toyota says the actual figure is closer to 1.16 million Corolla models.
Last year, Ford said it took the sales crown through the fist half of 2012 based on information from IHS Automotive, but Toyota pointed out those numbers left out models like the Corolla-based Matrix and Auris, as well as the Corolla Fielder and Scion xB-based Corolla Rumion. Whether or not Toyota's belief that all these cars should be counted in the Corolla bucket is accurate or not is seemingly up for debate... as is the question of why it matters so much to both parties.
This time around, Ford is holding the line that the Focus is the "best-selling nameplate," with Erich Merkle, a US sales analyst with Ford saying the company's figure is, "a pure number that is verified by a third party." Toyota, meanwhile, has requested clarification from Polk.

Report: GM struggling to market turbo technology

Tue, 20 Apr 2010 16:01:00 EST

In the automotive realm, marketing can sometimes prove just as important as the actual product. Take, for instance, Ford's well regarded EcoBoost technology, which couples turbocharging with direct injection to produce more horsepower and reduce fuel consumption. Would it surprise you to hear that General Motors has had similar technology on the market for over three years?
It's true. GM's first turbocharged, direct injected powerplants hit the market for the 2007 model. The 2.0-liter Ecotec mills put down an impressive 260 horsepower and a matching 260 pound-feet of torque, and they were lauded by the press in the engine bays of the Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Sky, Chevrolet Cobalt SS and Chevrolet HHR SS. But few people outside a core group of enthusiasts actually remember this fact.
Says Uwe Grebe, executive director of GM's global advanced engineering, "We didn't have a badge and say, 'This is the most important thing we will put on all our brochures.'" Ford, however, did just that, and it's EcoBoost engines are right at the tips of all our tongues when we discuss today's most advanced powerplants. So, how does The General fix its mistake?
