This beautiful ’63 has the 300 HP 390 Ford FE Z-code engine. Above and beyond that, it is outfitted and upgraded with with some 406/405HP G-code goodies! Like a G-code 406 this XL 500 has a 6V Triple Holley 3Χ2 induction (tripower)
and cast iron 406FE headers. This car runs and sounds like a true HIPO car. The 390 barks through its dual
exhaust. Shifting gears is a dream with the smooth shifting tough Borg-Warnder t-10. If you haven’t been behind
the wheel of a 390 or bigger FE 4-speed Galaxie, you would be surprised how well they run. These cars can hang
with the sporty pony cars with no issues. AC blows cold! The long block is still original to the car. C3AE heads and engine block do have the correct date code. The engine is very strong with the only modifications being the hipo 406 intake, exhaust and electronic ignition.

Exterior: The Rose Beige paint shines nice. The car has been repainted the original code W color. There is no
evidence of cracks or rust. The bumpers and emblems look great. The aluminum trim is all there, some could use
restoration if you want the trim to be at a show quality level. The paint measures pretty consistent across the
car. There has been some body work done to the rear quarter-panels behind the rear tires. The work appears to be
of high quality and there are no signs of cracking or issues. The convertible top has been replaced and is in good
shape.
Interior: All original upholstery, dash pad and door panels are in good shape. The carpet appears to be replaced
however it is in OEM quality carpet set. All of the glass, door handles and dash components are in nice shape. The
air conditioning works, all of the gauges work, all lights work. The clock is intermittent.
Mechanical: The 390 is very strong and very fun with the 6V(tripower). The 4 speed adds to the excitement, it
shifts smooth like a T-10 should. The car steers super easy, rides nice and stops well! Data Tag Breakdown:

Jay Leno and Lee Iacocca reflect on 50 years of Ford Mustang

Mon, 30 Dec 2013 19:58:00 EST

Lee Iacocca oversaw the birth of the Ford Mustang back in the 1960s, rocketing the new pony car nameplate into million-unit sales territory in its initial go-round and cementing its place in the history books. Thus, we were immediately drawn to this latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage, in which the funnyman hosts Iacocca for a look at the origins of Ford's most iconic sports car. The legendary auto exec is looking notably more frail than when we last saw him, but if we're being asked around as a video guest when we're 89 years old, we'll consider that evidence of a life well lived.
Serial No. 0001 is on hand for the occasion for Jay's romp through history, as is the historic Mustang 1 showcar from 1962. Of course, the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang GT (in prototype form) makes an appearance at the end of the episode with chief engineer Dave Pericak, as well. Get some, below.

Chevy Camaro is a good sport, wishes Ford Mustang Happy 50th

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 15:45:00 EST

It was 1966 when Chevrolet launched its challenger to the wildly successful Ford Mustang, the Camaro. While the competition between the two brands was already healthy, the arrival of the Camaro set off one of the most intense, model-to-model rivalries in the industry.
That competitive spirit hasn't stopped Chevy and the Camaro from wishing Ford's iconic muscle car a Happy 50th Birthday as the Ford's April 17 anniversary rolls around. These two cars have been linked over the years, and while the rivalry took a break for a few years in the 2000s, today's competition between the Camaro and Mustang is as fierce as it's ever been.
You might recall that this friendliness when it comes to major milestones isn't too rare. Ford put on quite a display for General Motors' hundredth anniversary back in 2008. As the Camaro's fiftieth birthday approaches in 2016, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Mustang sending its best wishes to its Bowtie rival.

Pickup sales may hit 2M units for first time since 2007

Sat, 21 Sep 2013 17:03:00 EST

Even as fuel prices creep back up, trucks are still a hot item among new-vehicle shoppers. To see how popular pickup trucks still are, you don't have to look any further than how much effort automakers put into the continual one-upmanship of their trucks. Backing this fact up, USA Today is reporting that the segment could top two million sales this year - a total not matched since 2007, though still far from the pre-recession, three-million-unit levels.
Through August, the Ford F-Series continues to be the segment leader with almost 500,000 units sold, but the Chevy Silverado (328,269), Ram 1500 (234,642), GMC Sierra (122,232) and Toyota Tacoma (110,293) are all seeing at least 20-percent sales increases, helping to account for around 1.44 million truck sales so far this year - not including possible outliers like the Suzuki Equator and Chevy Avalanche.
This year alone, General Motors has completely redesigned its fullsize trucks, Ram and Toyota have significantly updated their offerings, the next-gen Ford F-150 will be out next year and Nissan is promising an all-new Titan around the same time with an eventual Cummins diesel under the hood. It would seem, then, that truck sales are poised to continue their upward trend.
