Hi, I'm selling my "turn key"1961 Ford Galaxie Sunliner (convertible). The car was fully restored a few years back
it has about 61,xxx miles on it and believed to be original, as I am the second owner of the car and prior to that,
the car was restored, pampered and parked at a climate controlled private garage.
It features a rare color combo Corinthian White exterior and factory 2 tone, white on red interior. Under the hood
is the famous 292 “Y” block Ford Thunderbird Special engine with an auto trans which was rebuild at the time of
the restoration and has about 4k miles on it. It also has power steering, aluminum 3 core radiator, new fuel tank,
new fuel and break lines, new front end, new shocks front / back(air shocks in the back), new front to back dual
factory specs exhaust, new holley carb with electric choke ect..(basically everything was redone at the time of the
Floors, trunk pan and quarters are solid, and in good condition. Interior is mint with no rips tears or cuts. New
powered convertible top with zip down back window. All glass and stainless is in excellent condition. Paint is just
as good as show quality with few things here and there from normal wear.
All fully working gauges, working original radio, original clock, lights, wipers, original heater, etc...
(everything works) After market Pioneer radio with remote control was installed and hidden in the glove box with
USB connection for iPod and Bluetooth compatibility for any smart phone. New Undercover II Speakers were installed
under the front seat, and the tweeters were upgraded to O Zone tweeters. To get max performance out of it all an
amp was added under the back seat. All panels remain uncut for the install of the aftermarket radio and speakers.
If you wish to remove it, it can be done in less than 10 min.
I'm sure i'm forgetting a ton of things but at the end of the day the car runs and drives flawlessly. Always turns
heads and draws crowds where ever I go.

We've gotten our grubby little digits on the dealer order guide for the as-yet-unreleased 2014 Ford Fusion thanks to an anonymous tipster, and while there isn't much that's unexpected, there are some meaningful equipment changes to report after the rakish sedan's first year on the market.
Mechanically, the big news is, of course, the recently confirmed availability of the 1.5-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder paired with a six-speed automatic. The powertrain replaces the 1.6-liter automatic setup of 2013, though if you want a manual transmission, you'll still get the extra .1-liter of displacement.
On the equipment front, there are newly available rear inflatable seatbelts - as seen previously on the Explorer - along with a new heated steering wheel and cooled seat option on Titanium and Titanium Hybrid models (the latter two options will be late availability).
More than two dozen jurors started with a pool of 23 concept cars introduced at the most recent Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago, Toronto and New York auto shows, then pared it down to three winners in three categories for the twelfth annual North American Concept Vehicle of the Year Awards. The trophy-bearers are said to be those "vehicles most likely to shape the future of the automobile industry," and lead their classes in the Concept Car, Concept Truck and Production Preview divisions.
Hyundai had two cars as finalists for the Concept Car category, the competition boiled down to the Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis concept, Veloster C3 Roll Top, Honda EV-STER and the Toyota Corolla Furia. It won with the HCD-14 Genesis that was introduced at the Detroit Auto Show, a sharp sedan that sharply divided opinion between those who thought it was too much, those who thought it was too much Audi A7, and those who thought it was perfect. The award panel's judges, however, thought so much of it that it's got two awards in one sitting, not only taking concept car honors, but because it earned the highest overall score in the competition it also takes the crown for Most Significant Concept Vehicle of 2013.
The final selection in the Concept Truck category was down to the Ford Atlas, Kia Cross GT, Nissan Resonance and Volkswagen Cross Blue. The Ford Atlas took the silverware, after also winning the Eyes on Design award - shared with the Nissan Resonance - at the Detroit Auto Show where it was introduced.
What you see in the above image is a rendering of the Hackmobile Transit Connect Wagon. What is that? It's a "mobile fabrication and hacking unit" that includes tools for metal- and woodworking, 3D and electronics fabrication, a three-axis CNC machine called "The Fabber," a video projector and screen, an air compressor, an 84x48-inch work surface that folds out like a Murphy bed and oh so much more. When not in use, all of the implements fold neatly into the back of Ford's award-winning van.
But perhaps the more important question is why is that? Because Make Magazine held an Ultimate Maker Vehicle Challenge in conjunction with Ford in which ten teams created were charged with creating "the ultimate Ford Transit Connect Wagon for the do-it-yourself enthusiast." Team Twin Cities Maker won the competition with the Hackmobile, and in addition to winning $10,000, Ford has declared it's actually going to build the thing - which is great, because if they can actually engineer a road-legal Hackmobile Transit Connect Wagon as envisioned, the inevitable A-Team movie reboot might need to think about including it.
Check out the video below for a cheeky walk-through of the Hackmobile, and get all the particulars in the press release below that.
