Super Rare 1964 Country Squire Highly Optioned 6 Passenger Wagon in Suberb rust free unrestored condition. Options include T-Bird 390, A/C, Roof Rack, Power Stearing and brakes and working electric rear window. If you want the ultimate Surfwagon that you can drive to the beach and leave without body guards , this is it!!!!. Car was just driven on a 100 mile trip at 70 miles per hour without any issues. This is a beautiful unrestored rust free wagon with original trim and interior that is a survivor and a wonderfully fun driver. We bought this wagon two years ago with the idea to restore and have yet to start any major work. Recent work ( $2500.00) includes freshenening the engine compartment, along with carb rebuild, new valve cover gaskets, electric fuel pump, reconditioned gas tank, distributor, plugs, points wires and suspension gone through. The car starts and drives beautifully and is NOW solid and tight. This 64 Country Squire has the rare 390 CI Upgrade Thunderbird Engine Option with 300 HP which does not smoke or tick. The front suspension has been rebuilt and exhaust is new front to back. The car has had one driver quality repaint years ago but the door jambs are original and NOT all covered in overspray and thick paint as most old wagons are, and the woodgrain has been replaced at some point with after market panelling. The airconditioning is not connected but is all in tack. The rear tailgate window works perfectly. The front seat cover needs replacing and a new after market cover in the same pattern is included and the dash has two cracks and is covered with a dash pad . The head liner is great. Most people dont show you the drivers area because they are hiding the worn out seat but the replacement cover will fix the problem. The rear seats are great. This is a six passenger wagon. The exhaust has straight pipes and has a performance rumble when running. The rear tires are great, front will need replacing eventually. Door jambs and doors are 100% solid as is the body and undercarriage. Chrome is original and decent, These Country Squires are becoming impossible to find but even more so at this price, dont miss out all questions will be answered Car is 10 minutes from Toronto Pearson Airport. Thanks Greg

There is a new vehicle that you should keep an eye out for when you're going a little too fast down the Interstate. Ford's Explorer-based Police Interceptor Utility was the bestselling new law enforcement model in the country last year, and signs show that won't be changing anytime soon.
Wed, 11 Jun 2014 11:58:00 EST
Ford sold 14,086 Interceptor Utilities in 2013, up 140% from the year before, and 10,897 Interceptor Sedans, up 31%, according to USA Today. Overall, the brand's police sales were up 48 percent, and they were enough to boost the company's law enforcement vehicle market share by 9 points to nearly 50 percent.
The success comes just a few years after it made the decision to finally retire the long-serving Crown Victoria-based cruiser for two more modern vehicles. "We had to reinvent the category," said Chris Terry of Ford Communications to Autoblog. The automaker had to convince police departments that a unibody chassis without a V8 could perform better than a model that had been a law enforcement staple for years.
As a segment, fullsize vans are stealth-fighter invisible on most consumers' radar. Visit a dealership for any of the four brands that offer them and you'll be lucky to find even one on display. These are commercial vehicles primarily, even more so than pickup trucks. Vans are the shuttles for plumbers, caterers, carpenters, concrete layers, masons, electricians, florists and flooring, and a huge part of this country's productivity is accomplished using them. At the moment, Ford is the 800-pound gorilla in that room - fully 41 percent of commercial vehicles wear a Blue Oval. So when Ford announced three years ago it would be ditching its commercial bread-and-butter E-Series, it meant the Transit that would be replacing the Econoline had huge, 53-year-old shoes to fill.

We were still a bit nostalgic about Econoline vans going away until going directly from the Transit first drive in Kansas City to an E-350 airport shuttle. Climb up through the Econoline's tiny double doors and bang your head on the opening, crouch all the way to your seat then enjoy a loud, rattle-prone, creaky, harsh ride on beam-hard seats while struggling to see out the low windows. This is an experience nearly every traveler has had. By comparison, the Transits we'd just spent two days with were every bit of the four decades better they needed to be. It cannot be understated just how much better the Transit is in every single way. The load floor is barely more than knee high. There's a huge side door, and hitting your head on a door opening is nearly impossible. Stand up all the way if you're under six-foot, six-inches - no more half-hunching down the aisle. There are windows actually designed to be looked out of. The ride is buttery smooth, no booming vibration from un-restrained metal panels and no squeaks. Conversations can be held at normal levels rather than yelling over the roar of an ancient V8. The seats are comfortable. The AC is cold. There are cupholders.
Enough anecdote-laying, what's in a Transit? We're talking about a very fullsized unibody van that's enjoyed a 49-year history in Ye Olde Europe. This latest iteration is part of the "One Ford" initiative, so it was designed as a global offering from the get-go, eschewing the body-on-frame construction the E-Series has used since 1975. Instead, the Transit integrates a rigid ladder frame into an overall frame construction made of high-strength cold-rolled and boron steel. The suspension is a simple but well-tuned Macpherson strut array up front with a rear solid axle and leaf springs.
The news keeps pouring in from the Consumer Electronics Show now underway in Las Vegas, and the latest comes from Ford which has announced two new apps for its Sync AppLink system.
First up is a cooperative app launched by Ford together with Domino's Pizza that lets drivers of the former order pizza from the latter right from their car. The service allows those with Ford Sync AppLink in their car or truck and are registered with a Domino's Pizza Profile to place an order for their favorite pie using Dearborn's voice-recognition software for either pickup or delivery. Save your information in your Pizza Profile and it'll be sent to your house without even the push of a button, which strikes us as awesome a use of technology as we've ever seen.
