1930-31 Model A Ford Chassis on 2040-cars
Eagle Creek, Oregon, United States
I purchased this chassis to build a 5 window coupe for myself, but ended up buying a finished car from a fellow club member, hence the chassis is for sale. It is a running driving chassis, complete with radiator, grill shell, hood, cowl, gas tank, floor boards etc. as shown in the photos. This is the nicest Model A frame I have ever seen. No bends, splits, tears, welds or modifications of any kind. There are very few rust pits and the running board brackets are mounted with the original Ford rivets. The engine has just had the valves ground and head surfaced. It runs beautifully, with lots of power and no smoke or unusual noises. It comes with a Zenith carburetor, with all stock linkage in place. The clutch does not chatter, the transmission shifts smoothly and there are no unusual noises from either the transmission or rear end. I just took it for a two mile drive yesterday. All components have been cleaned, detailed and painted (frame painted with chassis black), ready for your next project. New brake rods have been installed, and all brakes (including the emergency brake) adjusted. All fluids are fresh. The cowl is from a closed car, and could be the start of a woody wagon, speedster or remove it and install your body. It has been cleaned, primed and painted with semi-gloss black. Wheels (with stock hubcaps) are very nice and tires are " good rollers". The radiator is original and has been repaired, but cools well and does not leak. The steering has some play in it, and have not attempted to set the alignment or make any adjustments. The muffler is near new, but has a dent in the bottom that does not impair its function and is not obvious unless you are on your back. If desired, I will provide the buyer with 4 freshly powder coated red wheels and new Bedford tires (no miles) for an additional $500 (shown on last photo). The engine number indicates a June 1930 build. The chassis is being sold with a bill of sale only (no title will be provided). eBay requires that I state the type of title, but there is no title. You can acquire a title or have your DMV issue a constructed vehicle title. Shipping is the buyer's responsibility, but I will assist in loading. I will also store for up to 30 days after the sale at no charge. Please feel free to contact me with your questions via email or phone--Bill (971) 235-3804

He may be a few months late to the party, but in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang, Jay Leno has delivered a short video in which he runs down which of the Blue Oval's pony cars from the past 50 years are his favorites.

The list is pretty darn similar to our own, with some of the big names from the Mustang's half century making an appearance, while there are three or four cars here that we think you'll be pretty surprised by.
Take a look below for this short video from Jay Leno's Garage.
The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling truck in the United States for the past 37 years, and the best-selling vehicle outright for the past 32. That's quite a legacy, and thus, it's no surprise that Ford worked super-duper-extra hard on creating the all-new, aluminum-bodied 2015 F-150 that debuted at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year.

During an event at the company's headquarters in Dearborn, MI this week, we were able to see all of the ways that Ford endurance tests, not just the new F-150, but all of its vehicles. From examining things like light exposure to interior materials and paint finishes, to making sure that corrosion absolutely does not happen when steel components come in contact with aluminum panels in the new truck. The goal: ensure that the new F-150 is nothing short of "Built Ford Tough."
But that's only a small part of the story. Of course, the new F-150 has to be able to withstand whatever a pickup buyer might throw at it - and truck buyers arguably demand the most from their vehicles. So in an effort to convey just what the new F-150 had to go through before being given the final go-ahead, Ford has released a series of videos, showing how its new halo truck was indeed torture tested.
Autonomous cars may still be in their infancy, but more and more big names in the auto industry are diving in head first. Nissan is already making strides with a semi-autonomous Leaf EV and General Motors is planning to offer semi-autonomous tech by 2020. And then there's Google, doing its thing with a fleet of Toyota Prius. Now, Ford is showing off its latest automated effort, a driverless Fusion Hybrid.
Partnering with the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and State Farm Insurance, the project is part of Ford's Blueprint for Mobility, the company's plan for transportation beyond 2025. "The Ford Fusion Hybrid automated vehicle represents a vital step toward our vision for the future of mobility," Chairman Bill Ford said. "We see a future of connected cars that communicate with each other and the world around them to make driving safer, ease traffic congestion and sustain the environment."
The automated Fusion features four LiDAR infrared sensors that scan the road 2.5 million times every second, using a principle similar to the echolocation used by dolphins or bats. Using the infrared light emitted by the LiDAR, the car can draw a picture of everything within 200 feet to create a map of its surroundings. According to Ford, the sensors are able to tell the difference between a paper bag and a small animal from a football field away.
