Ok, I've got a 1928-1931 ford truck rat rod project.  There is no title because I havent gotten that far.  The cab, frame, and bed were built by a Heath at New Metal Kustoms in Kentucky.  The motor is a 1950's ford 223ci straight six along with a matching three speed trans from the same vehicle that the motor is from.  I personally have dissassembled and fully checked the internals.  The internals of the motor have been magnafluxed and all is great with the motor. I do not have a yoke for the trans but do have a drive shaft to fit the crown vic rear end. The front axle is from a 1930 ford model a, front brakes are from a 1955 ford f100 with new bearings and seals. The spindles are from a 1938 ford truck. I have split the wish bones and welded in new bungs and threaded heim joints.  The split wish bones are from a 1938 ford truck. The motor mounts are made by myself and are tacked in quite well. There is no trans mount made yet.  Transmission shift into all gears with the new Mr. Gasket three speed shifter. I have two steering wheels and shafts that go with the truck. One is from the same 1938 ford truck, and the other is from a Jeep that I found in the junk yard. I also have the dash from the old jeep that's been cut down.  Speedo guage is still in the dash from the jeep.  It gives that vintage feel having the large speedo. There is a front grill from a 1929 ford that I was going to use to hold the radiator and also goes with the truck. The rear end is from a crown vic and the emergency cables are still attached. The truck has no interior.The wheels and tires are original to a 50's merc and are 16x4 with a 3.5 inch white wall.  Ive got two vega steering boxes to go with the project. I've got bolts holding on the front axle but it will need the correct perches to be installed. The cab is a slant roof with speed holes cut in the visor. Mini Bear Claw latches are installed for the doors to lock shut. The gas tank is an spun aluminum 15 galon tank that is mounted in the rear of the truck.  I wish that I had time to finish but that isnt the case.  If you have questions or requests for additional pic's just let me know.

2015 Ford Mustang production to begin on July 14? Not quite, says Ford

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 14:03:00 EST

Mustang6g.com believes that it has unlocked start date for 2015 Ford Mustang production citing a Ford dealer communiqué. According to the report, job one on the 2015 hardtop will allegedly start in just a few days, on July 14, although units that are known as "OK to Buy" won't enter production until September 9. The cars built between those dates are most likely final pre-production cars for the executive test fleet, and will likely include the cars we'll be driving at the media launch.
Sun worshippers, meanwhile, would seem to have a longer wait. Job one on the droptop supposedly isn't slated to start until September 14, with production models starting on October 27. As is the case with the hardtop, these final pre-pros are for the execs and media to test, while actual dealer orders will come from vehicles made after the October date.
After speaking to Ford, though, we wouldn't put a great deal of stock in those dates as reported. We reached out to Said Deep, Ford's North American Product Communications Manager.

Ford acquires Livio to bolster connectivity biz

Thu, 26 Sep 2013 18:01:00 EST

Ford Motor Company has announced the acquisition of Livio, a Ferndale, MI-based software development company best known for aftermarket in-car connectivity devices, but also as a supplier of technology for proprietary systems for automakers. Livio, co-founded by Sigal and Massimo Baldini, will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford Global Technologies.
"With the additional expertise Livio provides us, Ford intends to continue to lead the next generation of in-car connectivity with technology advancements that give consumers more options to access their devices on the go," said Paul Mascarenas, chief technical officer and vice president, Ford Research and Innovation, in a statement.
Ford is clearly trying to beef up its in-house tech capability around telematics and device connectivity. While the Blue Oval has been a leader in these areas with SYNC and MyFord Touch in terms of getting the systems into as many cars as possible, the execution of the applications have been criticized for glitches.

Ford Fiesta ST orders off to strong start

Fri, 17 May 2013 17:46:00 EST

We at Autoblog love the new little Ford Fiesta ST, and apparently, folks in Europe are pretty impressed with it, as well. According to Ford, the automaker's European arm has already logged 3,000 orders for the new hot hatch since it hit dealerships this March. The US-spec car, which will only be available as a five-door, will go on sale in the United States this summer.
What's perhaps most interesting about the Fiesta ST ordering is that the majority of customers appear to be ordering high-spec cars. According to Ford data, 60 percent of customers have opted for the leather interior with Recaro buckets, and 90 percent have selected the upgraded 17-inch wheels (seen on our test car, above). Spirit Blue has been the most popular color, commanding 27 percent of all orders. As for the technology upgrades, 19 percent of customers have ponied up for the Sony stereo with navigation.
To recap, the Fiesta ST is offered with Ford's 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, putting out 179 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, mated exclusively to a six-speed manual transmission. We had an absolute blast flinging the hot Fiesta through the French Alps, and we can't wait for this sharp little hatch to make its way over to the States.
