This Custom 2-door Sedan R-code is by far the rarest of the 1964 (factory produced) 427/4spd cars, w/less than 15 built. 1964 R-code Galaxies - hundreds built. 1964 Galaxie "Lightweight" - 100 built. I have done my research and in 5 years, I have only found one other road worthy Custom R-code (currently being restored) & 1 story from a past owner (his car being MIA). My car is the only 1964 Custom R-code listed on the 427 Registry online (check it out online - 427GalaxieRegistry.com). The Custom Sedan was a bare bones factory drag car & again more rare than the Lightweight cars! Perhaps by offering my car on eBay - a couple more original 1964 R-code Sedans will surface. * I am giving a very brief description here - "serious" buyers are encouraged to contact me directly for a full run down of this extremely rare car. - 4 year complete restoration - period correct "street/strip" look- new paint - org. Guardsman Blue- new interior - org. Med. Blue- correct date coded (org. to the car) 427 solid lifter motor - two 4 barrel carbs (Holley) - motor was removed & completely gone thru - 4 spd Toploader re-built (Hurst shifter)- all new front/rear suspension (factory) & adjustable gas (drag) shocks- 4:11 rear end - all new brakes- Tear Drop hood (I have the org. factory hood)- period correct 3" exhaust - Crites headers & cut-outs- period correct bias-ply tires (the rears are Monarch "street" slicks from the 1970's which are in perfect cond!)- period correct dash mounted drag tach * She runs perfect - is always stored indoors - and of course turns heads everywhere she goes (nothing is more beautiful sounding than a solid lifter FE motor!

Vaughn Gittin Jr. spends a great deal of his workday going sideways, but he's usually alone in the endeavor. For a guy that is clearly a dog lover, we imagine that can get a bit lonely.
That won't be a problem for Gittin in this latest video, which features the racer hanging out with his good pal Brody (a dog) and everyone's favorite hot hatch, the Ford Fiesta ST.
The attractive new 2013 Ford Fusion has done wonders for the brand in the highly competitive midsize sedan segment - the vehicle is up nearly 22 percent compared to last year. But that sales momentum may soon hold steady due to low inventory levels of the new Fusion across the United States.
According to a report in The Detroit News, citing automotive data and Ward's Auto, Ford currently has a 39-day supply of the Fusion. That might sound fine, but a normally healthy average is about a 60-day supply. If Ford were to stop production on the Fusion today, there would only be enough vehicles available to get through another five weeks of sales, according to the News.
Currently, Ford produces the Fusion at its three-shift assembly plant in Hermosillo, Mexico, and will add production at its facility in Flat Rock, MI later this year. A Ford spokesperson told The Detroit News that when Flat Rock production comes online, the automaker will need to rush new stock out to the regions with the most demand for the Fusion. Ford has doubled its coastal retail market share, with huge amounts of growth in areas like Los Angeles, San Francisco and Miami, the News reports.
Despite some truly impassioned pleading from Jay Leno himself - including calling on Arizona's notoriously Republican-rich voters to beat the $600,000 level set the last time Leno sold a vehicle for this particular charity... in California - bidding for George Bush's 2009 Ford F-150 pickup truck stalled at $300,000.
All proceeds will be sent to the Fisher House Foundation, so at least it's $300K going to a good cause. Feel free to check out the live image gallery above, which includes shots showing Leno's skills helming the auction, and read through the official auction description below.
*UPDATE: Video of the auction and Leno's prods to the crowd for more money can now be seen below.
