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

Ford has released projections for its 2013 profits, along with predictions of its 2014 earnings, and the news has forced the company's stock to stumble, falling over seven percent as of this writing. The Blue Oval is expecting earnings of $8.34 billion for 2013, although the bulk of that is coming largely from its North American operations, as troubles abroad continue to take a toll.

Calling 2013 an "outstanding" year, Ford expects its revenue to be up about 10 percent, thanks to gains in market share everywhere but Europe. But it's 2014 predictions that are causing stock prices to fall, as the Dearborn-based manufacturer expects pre-tax profits to fall to $7 to $8 billion, because of troubles in both Europe and South America, according to a report from Reuters. This is despite an expansion plan that will see it open an additional factory in the southern hemisphere, as well as two plants in China, all in a bid to launch 23 new or refreshed products next year.
The issues in South America aren't so much related to a fall in sales - Ford expects improved profits in Brazil and Argentina - but because of currency devaluations in Venezuela that are projected to cost it around $350 million. While that would still allow it to break even with 2013, Ford cites continued economic risks that could push losses even higher.
Ford is unsurprisingly bringing a herd of its new 2015 Mustang models to next month's SEMA show in Las Vegas. Over a dozen of them are arriving from top aftermarket outfits like Galpin Auto Sports, Steeda, Roush and others. The Blue Oval isn't just shining a spotlight on the V8 model, though. The new EcoBoost 2.3-liter version with 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque is also getting its time in the sun.

Among the shined-up ponies will be a showcar helping Galpin celebrate the Mustang's golden anniversary, with the car is covered in the precious metal. The black paint over the body has gold flecks in it, and the wheels, side sills, brake calipers and badges all match, as well. However, it takes more than something shiny to truly impress at SEMA, and Galpin's Mustang also packs a Whipple supercharger for the 5.0-liter V8, boosting the bottom line to 725 horsepower. Take that, Hellcat. There's even a window in the hood to look through, not unlike a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. The coupe also wears new headlights with LED turn signals that activate in sequence, just like the taillights, and the interior features black-and-gold Recaro seats.
Also set for its SEMA debut is an MRT showcar that takes the EcoBoost Mustang for a gallop with its TKO treatment. The black and orange two-tone car has been designed to incorporate select road racing elements. Mechanical upgrades include 14-inch brake rotors with new ducts, a Vortech air-to-air intercooler and an Air Lift suspension. The Mustang also shows off the company's products for added style and performance including a hood with integrated heat extractors and a unique front splitter.
Originally developed with the sole purpose of being a Ferrari rival to compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Ford GT40 became a prominent racing machine in the 1960s in both Europe and the US. Not wanting to leave such an important car out of the fun, the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance also took time out from its other celebrations to recognize the 50-year anniversary of the GT40.
Over its short lifespan, the GT40 was offered in a handful of configurations, but the classic short-tailed (Mk I and Mk II) bodystyles were well represented... especially in Gulf livery. James Glickenhaus (of Ferrari P4/5 fame) had his bright yellow Mk IV in the field, and there were several others in this bodystyle, including one that has seen plenty of time on the track judging by its chipped-up nose.
As a fitting statement for the car's lengthy racing history, GT40 Chassis Number 1075 won this year's Concours de Sport award. This car took home the checkered flag at Le Mans in 1968 and 1969, and racked up a total of six wins in just 11 races.
