1930 Ford Model A Deluxe Roadster Fully Restored on 2040-cars

Sayville, New York, United States

1930 Ford Model A Deluxe Roadster.  Complete nut and bolt restoration completed in 2004.  The restoration was done to specifications even higher than when it was first produced, but retains a 100% factory original look.  Restoration was done by a Smithtown, NY family for themselves with a long history in the restoration business.  They restored the car to keep, but unfortunately illness eventually forced them to sell. 

There was no expense spared when restoring this Model A.  The car is all original Ford steel, no reproduction panels were used.  The crankshaft was blueprinted/balanced to reduce the typical vibration when the engine's running.  The water pump was machined out for bearings instead of the original bushings to prevent the typical coolant leaks plaguing all Model A's.  The bearings are completely invisible from the exterior so it doesn't detract from the 100% factory original look.  The top and interior are from Lebarron Bonney, the foremost authority in Model A interiors/tops.  The bumpers are reproduction, but better than original in all stainless steel.  The car has dual sidemounts.

Since it's completion in 2004, it has logged just over 1400 miles.  The car was primarily used to drive to local shows, sunday afternoon drives etc and has a great patina now.  It still looks like a very fresh restoration, considering it's been 10 years since completion, but has been driven and carefully enjoyed.  I have owned it for over a year and half now, but the rumble seat is getting a little tight to fit my kids in now.  This car has no needs/issues and is ready for the next owner to drive and enjoy.  

The car runs/drives as good as it looks and I encourage you to take a look in person before the auction ends.  It is located in my climate controlled garage in Sayville, NY.

Ford wins second consecutive Engine of the Year with 1.0L EcoBoost [UPDATE]

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 09:00:00 EST

For the second year in a row, Ford has taken top honors in International Engine of the Year voting. As was the case last year, it is Ford's 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine that earns the automaker the accolade, achieving the highest-ever accumulated score in the 15 years that the award has been handed out.
A panel of 87 automotive journalists from 35 countries are responsible for choosing the world's best engines, and this is only the third time an automaker has managed back-to-back victories. Voters were impressed by the "Baby EcoBoost" engine's power output - 123 horsepower between 1,400 and 4,500 rpm, 148 pound-feet of torque from 1,400 to 4,000 rpm - and its compact size; Ford has demonstrated that the package is small enough to fit in the overhead bin of a passenger airplane.
Currently, the 1.0-liter EcoBoost is offered in the European Fiesta, B-MAX, Focus, C-MAX and Grand C-MAX, and Ford plans to put the engine in the Transit Connect, Transit Courier, Tourneo Connect, Tourneo Courier, Mondeo and EcoSport in short order. In North America, the Fiesta will be the first vehicle to offer the 1.0L EcoBoost later this year.

NHTSA closes investigations into Ford Taurus, Hyundai Santa Fe

Wed, 03 Jul 2013 13:30:00 EST

Ford and Hyundai are out from under the scrutinizing eyes of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration after the government agency said it was closing investigations against both automakers over vehicle safety concerns.
Ford was being investigated for reported damaged speed control cables on Ford Taurus (shown above) and Mercury Sable models, both built between 2000 and 2003. Vehicles with the company's Duratec engines allegedly failed to allow owners to brake as expected. Owners lodged 100 complaints and were involved in five accidents, according to NHTSA records. The American automaker responded to the reports, and on June 21 of this year, said that it would inspect and repair all affected vehicles, regardless of the mileage.
Hyundai was under investigation for a reported loose fastener on the steering shaft of its 2011 Santa Fe (shown in the gallery below). After NHTSA launched its inquiry, the Korean automaker responded with its own investigation that yielded four affected vehicles. Following the inspection of 680 vehicles at its assembly plant, Hyundai said the issue was due to employee error and that no further defects have been found.

Shelby GT500 laps N"urburgring in under 7:40?

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 12:33:00 EST

A couple of weeks ago we brought you footage and official times of the new Chevy Camaro Z/28 lapping the Nürburgring. With a 7:37.47 lap time, the Z/28 emerged as the fastest muscle car ever to lap the circuit. But what was missing from that picture was how fast the king of all Mustangs, the Shelby GT500, could manage to lap the Nordschleife.
Ford never released any information or footage of the GT500 on the Nürburgring that we were aware of - that is, until the guys at SVTPerformance.com put in a request for Mustang videos. Among the clips they received was never-seen, in-car footage of the Shelby GT500 lapping the circuit. And boy did it hustle.
Although not quite official, the video seems to show the GT500 lapped the venerated German track in a touch under 7:40. That would make it a tick or two faster than the Camaro ZL1 - but what of the Z/28? By Chevy's quoted time, the Z/28 is still faster than the GT500, but SVTPerformance suggests GM may have fudged the numbers a bit and scrubbed half a second or so off their lap time.
