    We had to swap some hard to find Mustang parts and a wad of cash, but we got the deal done on this very neat old Ford.  The only problem is; unlike most of our local semi-arid vehicles, this one was out of Denver and has some normal rust.

     Unlike most people; we are protecting our 100% feedback by showing you all the bad we found, along with the good.  There is a lot of good.

     This is the 300 horse 390.  We are told they checked the numbers when they put the $2,533 in parts in the car.  At that time it got a full engine rebuild, new brakes, tires, new exhaust, and a full engine compartment detail including correct decals.

     Car starts, runs, and drives as you would expect the end result of a correct job.  Engine is quiet and very strong.  Carb functions correctly and the non-power brakes stop fine.

     This car has the correct 500 XL pieces inside and out, including buckets and console with shift.

      This is a good straight start, but will need the $3,500 interior kit, rear quarters, passenger front floor, and other misc. rust repairs, but it is 99% there and nice trim and hubcaps on a pretty darn straight body.  Windshield has a crack up through the middle and the top and boot are in fair to good condition.  It is missing the XL emblem on right front fender and we only have half of the letters for the trunk.

     We have seen much worse than this bring a lot of money because they totally misrepresented the car.  We would rather take less and have you get what you thought you were buying.

     The car is fun to drive and presents itself well as it is.  Do a total restoration or slowly bring it back to new.  Either way these are $30-45,000 units when finished.  It is rare and '63's are fine looking cars.

      Car is stored inside and there is not a great hurry in picking it up.   Insure it when you buy it.   We do not charge extra to help load. 

      If car goes over a month for pickup, it might get moved outside.

      Thanks for looking.  

      $500 down is due within 48 hours of auction end unless prior arrangements have been made.  Remainder is cashiers check or bank wire or? within 7 days.  We will work with you.  Allow cashiers checks 2 weeks to clear our bank.

Ford-sponsored survey says a third of Brits have snapped a 'selfie' while driving [w/videos]

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 09:30:00 EST

Talking on the phone while driving isn't advisable, and texting while driving is downright dangerous. Considering those truths, the fact that we even need to point this out this is incredibly disturbing: taking "selfies" while behind the wheel is exceptionally stupid. But, it's a thing that a third of 18- to 24-year-old British drivers have copped to doing, according to a new study from Ford.
Ford, through its Driving Skills for Life program, surveyed 7,000 smartphone owners from across Europe, all aged between 18 and 24, and found that young British drivers were more likely to snap a selfie while behind the wheel than their counterparts in Germany, France, Romania, Italy, Spain and Belgium.
According to the study, the average selfie takes 14 seconds, which, while traveling at 60 miles per hour, is long enough to travel over the length of nearly four football fields (the Ford study uses soccer fields, but we translated it to football, because, you know, America). That's an extremely dangerous distance to not be focused on the road.

Lincoln trumpets $129M investment, 300 new jobs in Louisville for MKC

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 16:16:00 EST

Remember when we used to talk about how close Lincoln was to being axed and how it seemed any day now the Grim Reaper would use it as a car service back to the grave? Last time we did it was, oh, not even a month ago. What a difference 27 days makes: Ford and Lincoln are trumpeting a $129M investment in the Louisville Assembly Plant that builds the MKC.
In July the MKC was the third-best-selling Lincoln of the brand's six offerings, beat by the MKZ and - by a much smaller margin - the MKX. It has sold 2,895 units in the two months it's been on sale, which is more than half the year-to-date sales of the MKS, MKT and Navigator. It's already important, is what we're trying to say, and this is before the Chinese market gets a crack at it later this year.
The money headed to Kentucky will be joined by 300 new workers, another marker in Ford's march to create 12,000 hourly jobs in the US by next year. You can read more about it in the press release below.

Ford F-150 King Ranch celebrates 'history and authenticity' for 2015 [w/video]

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 19:00:00 EST

What's life like on an authentic Texas ranch? We honestly have no idea, having never lived on such a ranch, but we imagine it requires lots of hard work, grit and determination to keep all 825,000 acres - that's larger than the state of Rhode Island - of the King Ranch in Texas under control. Indeed, a total of 350 vehicles, all of which come from Ford, we're told, are currently in use by the ranch. No wonder, then, that the collaboration between Ford and King Ranch has lasted for 15 successful years.
For 2015, in celebration of that 15th anniversary, Ford is debuting three new King Ranch models today at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. The most significant is the 2015 F-150 King Ranch, which, naturally, will add unique interior and exterior bits and pieces to the new aluminum-intensive F-Series pickup. Color choices will consist of Caribou, Bronze Fire, Guard and Ruby Red Metallic Clearcoat, with a range of two-tones to go along with a monochromatic scheme in Caribou. Inside, a bespoke King Ranch interior will be swathed in Premium Mesa Brown leather.
Joining the F-150 King Ranch on dealership floors later this year will be 2015 King Ranch editions of the Super Duty pickup and Expedition fullsize SUV, all of which will offer similar levels of content. Scroll down for more details and two videos from Ford, and be sure to check out the high-res image gallery above, which was shot by the official State Photographer of Texas, Wyman Meinzer.
