1930 Ford Model A Deluxe Roadster Fully Restored on 2040-cars
so it doesn
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 opened 88 dealerships in China last year." "Ford opened 88 dealerships in China during the first half of 2014." "Ford opened 88 dealerships in China last month." None of those statements - even the last one - would seem unbelievable. Saying "Ford opened up 88 dealerships in China last Thursday," though, is a bit more dramatic.

Yes, on June 19 alone, Ford opened the doors on nearly 100 showrooms in the People's Republic, boosting the Blue Oval's total presence in the country to 750 dealerships. Of course, while an overabundance of dealers in the US proved troublesome for American manufacturers back in 2008 and 2009, there's no such concern in China. Considering the country's huge population and the breakneck pace of the local auto industry, you could be forgiven for being surprised Ford only has 750 outlets at this stage.
What's notable about this most recent push, besides the sheer volume of new stores, is their location. Over three-quarters of the new dealerships are in so-called Tier 4 cities, which are smaller towns that still contain millions of people. This fits with Ford's strategy in China of avoiding the bigger battlegrounds that are already dominated by competitors and focusing on setting up shop in newer markets that may have been overlooked, according to Automotive News.
Saleen may be making headlines these days for working on the Tesla Model S, but its history and bread-and-butter is all about the Ford Mustang. The rear-wheel-drive Dearborn pony cars singlehandedly put the company on the map in the '80s. Founder Steve Saleen was already a talented American racing driver when he started the venture, and like many auto industry businesses before him, Saleen went to the track to prove his vehicles' worth. Now, there's a chance to buy one of those early racers on eBay Motors.

Saleen Mustangs raced in the Sports Car Club of America Escort Endurance Championship - a series of multi-hour races meant to challenge man and machine. Ostensibly a showroom stock class, the cars had larger wheels, tuned suspensions and other upgrades that stretched the concept slightly. Saleen found major success though, taking the championship for its class in 1987 and winning the 24 Hours of Mosport consecutively from 1986 through 1988.
According to the seller, Saleen only built eight of these cars, and this one carries the #21R serial number. They all started life as new Mustangs from Ford dealers but were immediately stripped and prepped to go racing. Beyond obvious mods like a roll cage, they featured eight-inch wide wheels in front, an inch of additional track width, stiffer suspension bushings and much more.
The 2014 model year brings a whole host of changes to Ford's Fiesta B-Segment fighter, the most important of which (to our enthusiast eyes, anyway) is the addition of a potent new ST model. The US-spec hot hatch was first shown at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show last November, and thanks to Ford's build-and-price site, we've now learned that the Fiesta ST will slide in at $21,400 when it goes on sale later this year (*not including $795 for destination).
Under the hood of the ST is a turbocharged 1.6-liter EcoBoost inline-four good for 197 horsepower and 214 pound-feet of torque, mated solely to a six-speed manual transmission. Ford hasn't released performance data on its pint-sized puncher just yet, but know that these numbers make the Fiesta ST ever-so-slightly more powerful than the larger Volkswagen GTI while returning an estimated 34 miles per gallon on the highway.
Elsewhere in the lineup, the standard Fiesta also gets a smattering of improvements for the 2014 model year, including a new 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine and revised exterior styling. Pricing for the 2014 Fiesta sedan starts at $14,000, with the five-door model adding $600 to that number (again excluding the $795 destination fee).
