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

Ford recalling 205k Edge and Lincoln MKX units for possible corrosion

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 13:30:00 EST

After the horrible weather last winter, it's hard to look forward for the season to return this year. For those readers in much of the country, the snow is going to be flying soon, and with it comes salt on the roads. That means Ford's regional recall for the 2007-2008 Edge and Lincoln MKX arrives at the perfect time because they are at risk for corrosion.
The campaign covers 204,448 examples of the models in 21 states, plus the District of Columbia and some provinces of Canada. In total there are 186,024 vehicles in need of repair in the US and 18,424 in Canada.
According to Ford, it's possible for the area, "under the reinforcement brackets where the fuel tank is mounted" to corrode. If this happens, there might be a gas smell in the vehicle or even a fuel leak could develop. In fact, the automaker reports that one fire could be related to the problem but no injuries or accidents are reported.

Ford moving medium-duty F-Series production from Mexico to Ohio

Thu, 27 Feb 2014 09:30:00 EST


A few more Ford trucks will be built in the US in the near future with news that production of the F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks will move from Mexico to Ford's Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake, OH. Ford hasn't confirmed a precise timeline for the move, but The Detroit News claims the Blue Oval will make the shift later this year or in early 2015.
As Ford spokesperson Mike Levine reminded us, back in 2011, Ford announced in an investor release that it would shift production "after the [Ohio] plant stops current production of the Ford E-Series vans." According to that release, the Ohio factory will also receive $128 million in upgrades to build the new trucks, plus the F53 motorhome chassis and F59 commercial chassis.

2015 Ford Focus gets more Aston-y [w/video]

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 17:02:00 EST

With more and more members of the Ford brand adopting a new familial face, the Focus has been left looking like an odd man out. At the Geneva Auto Show, though, it properly rejoined the family, adopting the now familiar Aston Martin-ish grille that's proliferated throughout the range.
Overall, we're liking the refreshed Focus' look. Aside from the new grille, the headlights have been restyled and now look like elongated versions of the lamps on the Focus ST. Functionally, those headlamps are bi-xenon units, complete with an adaptive front lighting system. Out back, the rear retains the same overall look, which has been smoothed out for 2015.
In the cabin, the second-generation of Ford's much-maligned Sync system makes its debut. Sync 2, as it's called, is supposedly more intuitive than the first-gen system. Ford is promising "one-shot" navigation functions for the system. Saying "I'm hungry," should bring up a list of nearby restaurants. Of course, we'll be reserving final judgment until we can test the new system in person.
