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

Car and Driver lists 10Best for 2013, same as it ever was

Wed, 05 Dec 2012 13:30:00 EST

Forgive us for having the distinct feeling of déjà vu, but it certainly feels like we've been here before. By that we are referring Car and Driver and the announcement of its annual 10Best vehicles for 2013. To be sure, it's an impressive selection of cars that combine heart-pounding performance and frugal sensibilities, but it also represents something of a broken record on the part of C/D. We're not so sure that's a flaw, though, as the resulting list is tough to argue with.
Vehicles like the Ford Mustang, Porsche Boxster, and BMW 3 Series have maintained their high-horsepower spots on this list for several years now. Even on the more practical and nimble end, the Honda Accord, Honda Fit and Mazda Miata have not budged. These continued spots are even in light of redesigns for some vehicles such as the Accord, Boxster and 3 Series.
In fact, the only newcomer to the 10Best list this year are the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ twins, which knocked out the Cadillac CTS-V. We think it would have been a huge misstep to have excluded the FR-S/BRZ, even in light of the supercharged Caddy's lamentable departure from 10Best.

Consumer Reports explains its disdain for infotainment

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 19:14:00 EST

One of the perks of reviewing all manner of cars and trucks is that we're exposed to all the different infotainment systems. Whether Cadillac's CUE, Chrysler's UConnect, BMW's iDrive or MyFord Touch, we sample each and every infotainment system on the market.
Not surprisingly, some are better than others. It seems consumers have come to a similar consensus, with Consumer Reports claiming that Ford and Lincoln, Cadillac and Honda offer the worst user infotainment experiences. Not surprisingly, you won't find much argument among the Autoblog staff.
Take a look below to see just what it is about the latest batch of infotainment systems that grinds CR's gears. After that, scroll down into Comments and let us know if you agree with the mag's views.

Ford Mustang SVT caught looking fierce on the 'Ring

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 12:30:00 EST

The next-generation Ford Mustang SVT is one of the most anticipated performance cars of the moment. We've already seen it testing multiple times, but it has always been covered is some very heavy camouflage. However, Ford has just given us our best view yet of the new muscle car. According to our spy photographer, the Mustang was at the Nürburgring for high-speed testing, which meant that the Blue Oval had to remove most of the heavy obfuscation that the SVT has worn previously.
The stylish, more revealing camo makes picking out some of the more interesting details about the SVT rather easy. Starting from the front, there is the big hood scoop to feed cold air to its still mysterious engine. You can also immediately make out the model's new grille and lower front air dam. It has a vertical piece running from the bottom of the hood all the way to the ground. The aggressive styling almost gives the 'Stang the look of two fangs ready to bite down. The hood seam is even taped off here, which shows us its outline.
Around the side, it appears that the front and rear fenders are wider than stock, and the sills are certainly much larger. You can also just make out the SVT's bigger brakes behind its black wheels with a polished lip. Finally, at the rear, things appear mostly stock other than the diffuser that the exhaust outlets nestle into.
