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
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:

Ford C-Max Solar Energi takes a recharging station wherever it goes

Wed, 08 Jan 2014 08:28:00 EST

Companies ranging in size from small startups to major automakers have been experimenting with solar-powered charging stations for EVs and plug-in hybrids. And, of course, people have been powering vehicles with onboard solar panels for quite some time, too. Still, Ford's new C-Max Solar Energi Concept shows the promise of a truly practical implementation of solar on a production vehicle, and it may not be as far off in the future as we had thought.
As we reported a few days ago, the Solar concept makes use of a "concentrator lens" that focuses sunlight onto the Ford's roof-mounted solar panels. The special lens follows the rays of the sun to maximize the amount of charge being fed to the batteries of the car, taking about a day to fully charge the 21-mile, all-electric range of the C-Max Energi. Ford data suggests that combination might be enough to power 75 percent of all trips made by a statistically average driver. In turn, using the sun to power a vehicle could reduce yearly C02 emissions by up to four metric tons when compared with the driver of an average gasoline-powered sedan.
We've got live images of the C-Max Solar Energi Concept, jauntily tilted on its display to best present it's signature solar panels, straight from the CES floor.

2013 Shelby GT350

Fri, 31 May 2013 14:58:00 EST

Shelby is a name as synonymous with the Ford Mustang as marshmallows are with campfires. But unlike the short-lived sugary confection that is prepared on a stick, the late Carroll Shelby's name on the placard means added performance and exclusivity. Launched in 1965, the automaker's celebrated early cars were in production for a limited run - today, a mint concours-quality 1965 Shelby GT350 can sell for upwards of $350,000.
To coincide with the 45th anniversary of the original Shelby GT350, Shelby American reintroduced the GT350 in 2011. Like the original, it was only offered in white with blue stripes. Customers were offered a choice between naturally aspirated (440 horsepower) and two levels of supercharging (525 horsepower with a warranty or 624 horsepower without). The manufacturer calls the GT350 a "post-title" package, a term that means it starts out life as a stock Mustang and is modified outside Ford's factory (this is in contrast to the Shelby GT500, which is a standard Ford production car).
As the GT350 enters its third year, Shelby has made several changes. Mechanically, Wilwood brakes replace Baer units and Recaro seats and a tinted glass roof are on the options list. Cosmetically, the vehicle is now offered in most of the Blue Oval's factory colors, new multispoke wheels are available in Satin Black or Bright Silver Metallic finish, and customers can choose between Satin Black, Silver or Gloss White stripes (or Azure Blue Metallic on Performance White or Ingot Silver). Aesthetically, the look of the car has also changed somewhat - keen eyes will note that it actually appears more 'stock' than it did last year.

Is Tesla's next project an F-150 competitor? [w/poll]

Wed, 13 Nov 2013 15:00:00 EST

What's the future look like for Tesla after it launches the Model X CUV and possibly a smaller, sub-Model S sedan? Would you believe a pickup truck? Yes, Tesla could be looking to use its EV know-how to take the fight to Ford and the F-150, based on comments made by company founder Elon Musk.
"If you're trying to replace the most gasoline miles driven, you have to look at what people are buying," Musk said during an impromptu Q&A session following a speech at Business Insider's Ignition conference. "[The F-150 is] the best selling car in America. If people are voting that's their car, then that's the car we have to deliver."
And while the idea of electric pickup may sound kind of absurd to some, Musk makes a very valid point - if Tesla's goal is to replace gas miles with electrical miles, it simply can't afford to ignore pickups.
