One owner, all original, 1962 Ford Galaxie with only 96,000 actual miles. Equipped with a 292 Y-Block V8 and 3-speed manual transmission with column shift, padded dash, deluxe two-tone white interior. Was driven daily by a woman until 2004 when she quit driving. Regular maintenance and repairs were always done on time and immediately by the same local repair shop in town for the entire life of the vehicle. The car had been sitting until last year when I acquired it. I have buffed and polished the original paint (two-tone burgandy and white top) and it looks really nice for a weathered but clean 'PATINA' look with the two-toned paint faded away but shiny. Throw a coat of wax on it regularly and preserve it for another 20 years. Original hub caps are included although not shown in the pictures. I have ran the engine with an electric transfer pump and a gas can, and it runs like a watch-clean, quiet and smooth as silk. I have overhauled the carburetor and reinstalled it, but have not replaced the fuel filters or the rubber hoses. Therefore I have not ran it on its own fuel tank. It wouldn't hurt to clean the tank first. This car is equipped with a factory optional auxiliary canister fuel filter, so there are two filters. I have also replaced the brake master cylinder, and removed the weathered and worn carpet. I have new fuel filters and new front wheel cylinders that should be installed. The original headliner, door trim panels, sail panels, quarter trim panels, and trunk mat is all intact and in very good condition so I have not removed it. The car will need front seat upholstery, carpet, and the dash pad is cracked. It will need a new ignition lock cylinder or switch but I have correct keys for the car. The right front floor pan is rusted through but easily replaceable and only $67, the driver front floor pan is somewhat rusted but not through the metal. The battery tray is rusted as well. The car will also need a battery. The tires are not road worthy and the left front only holds air for a few days and the right rear only for a few hours. I had hopes of getting the drivetrain all in good working order and driving it, but I am moving and do not have time to fix it and I already have too many vehicles that will be going into indoor storage.

2014 Roush Stage 3 Mustang

Fri, 26 Jul 2013 11:57:00 EST

Up until now, it's been some years since I managed to get behind the wheel of the hot Mustangs tuned by the folks at Roush Performance. My memories of those vehicles are fond, as the Roush up-fits usually make for better-driving examples of the iconic Ford pony, with better-tuned suspensions, excellent short-shift kits and, of course, huge additions of power. The wake-your-neighbors aural characteristics of these cars have been nothing short of outstanding, too.
But in the years since my last experience with the Roush formula, Ford's own development team has churned out some pretty potent 'Stangs. We currently live in a world where the Blue Oval will sell you a Mustang with 662 horsepower from the factory, and the recently departed Boss 302 remains one of the best Mustangs - and best sports coupes - the Autoblog crew has ever driven.
So with great-driving and hugely powerful Mustangs coming straight off the line at Ford's Flat Rock Assembly Plant, does the Roush package still offer that extra special something to make it stand out? I spent a week with a Stage 3 coupe to find out.

Amazon looking to bring Kindle to your next car?

Mon, 25 Feb 2013 08:45:00 EST

Maybe so. The online retailer and digital media monolith recently announced the Amazon Cloud Player, an application for Ford Sync that allows users to stream media from their Amazon Cloud account directly to a Ford vehicle. This foray into automotive technology got the minds at thinking about what could be next for Amazon. As Kevin Fitchard writes, the logical step is to make audio versions of your Kindle library selections available in your car. As he points out, Amazon has already laid the groundwork for such a move.
Amazon pulled the sheets back on Whispersync for Voice last year. The tech pairs ebooks with an Audible book for a small extra fee, allowing users to either read along with a narrator or switch between audio and text versions on command. Fitchard says it wouldn't be some great leap to apply the same principles to a car, where voice recognition software would allow users to pause or select chapters without ever taking their eyes off of the road.
It all sounds just fine to us, but Amazon hasn't said a thing about such a move. Still, we wouldn't be surprised to see the company come down this road in the near future just the same.

Next Ford Mustang to drop 400 pounds

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 16:29:00 EST

The Ford Mustang is already the lightest of the current crop of muscle cars, at around 3,600 pounds for a GT coupe with the six-speed manual transmission. That's almost 260 pounds less than a Chevrolet Camaro SS and about 450 pounds less than a Dodge Challenger R/T, which means the Mustang has a pretty big advantage when it comes to handling, braking, accelerating and economy. More good news: The next Mustang will be even lighter.
According to a report from Edmunds, the sixth-generation Mustang, which is set to debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show, will shed an additional 400 pounds of body fat. That 11-percent weight reduction will be thanks to lightweight materials, with a particular focus on using stronger, but less material in construction. Aluminum will feature heavily, but Edmunds' inside source warns that there is "nothing terribly exotic" coming to the original pony car.
The other big news is that the new Mustang will be smaller overall. It's going to be 15-inches shorter than the 188.5-inch Mustang on sale today, while it'll also be 6.5 inches narrower. Shorter overhangs, both in the front and rear, are also good signs for those that want an agile Mustang.
