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.

Thanks to the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat there is a new magic number in the muscle car world - 707. To raise eyebrows these days in the power war, a vehicle needs to match or preferably exceed that palindromic figure. The tuners over at Hennessey took a look at it for their 2015 HPE700 Mustang and decided to go one better. Well, ten actually, because they bestowed their latest creation with 717 horsepower and 632 pound-feet of torque.
The HPE 700 Mustang takes the standard Mustang GT with its 5.0-liter V8 and turns up the power a few hundred notches with a Roots-type supercharger running at 7.25 psi. Hennessey claims that this boosted 'Stang can rocket to 60 miles per hour in about 3.6 seconds and cover the quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds at 131 mph. For those keeping score at home, those figures are very similar to Challenger Hellcat.
To cope with all of the added boost, the engine gets a high-flow throttle body, upgraded injectors, new fuel pump, stainless steel exhaust and Hennessey's calibration for the engine management. Pricing for the package is $59,500, including the base 2015 Mustang GT, but the company is limiting production to 500 units for the 2015 model year. Founder John Hennessey told Autoblog that he has already received about a dozen orders for them.
Saleen used the occasion of the race-fueled Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca to announce its new Heritage Collection Lineup. The event was punctuated with the debut of the collection's first member, the 2014 Saleen George Follmer Edition Mustang.
Follmer's name will likely sound familiar to fans of American racing in the 1960s and '70s. The driver competed in Formula One with the Shadow team in 1973, ran the Indianapolis 500, was the Can-Am champion in 1972 and drove stock cars in NASCAR's Winston Cup as well. The multi-disciplined driver is now one of three -the other two being Mark Donohue and Swede Savage - with the honor of upcoming, limited edition Saleen-tuned vehicles..

Ford is in a bit of a pickle for importing and selling Turkey-built Transit Connect cargo vans as passenger vehicles in the US, then converting them to commercial-vehicle specification stateside in an effort to bypass a 25-percent tax imposed on vehicles imported for commercial use. Automakers are required to pay a 2.5-percent tax on imported passenger vehicles.
The Blue Oval got into trouble for this in a January ruling in which U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials asked Ford to stop the practice of importing the Transit Connect vehicles with passenger seats, then removing and shredding them. Now Automotive News reports that Ford is appealing the ruling. The 25-percent "Chicken Tax," as the tariff is often called, is 50 years old and was enacted as a response to a German tariff on chickens. Like Ford, Chrysler bypasses the higher tariff, but it does so in a different manner. It partially disassembles Sprinter cargo vans before shipping them to the US, then rebuilds them at a plant in South Carolina.
But the ruling against Ford's strategy states that it "serves no manufacturing or commercial purpose" and is there to "manipulate the tariff schedule," Automotive News reports. As Ford's appeal goes through, it is importing the Transit Connect and paying the higher tax, hoping for a favorable outcome and planning to build the next-generation Transit Connect, which it plans to launch before the end of the year, in Spain.
