For your consideration is a 1914 Model T Ford Speedster. New items on the car include: All new paint by a professional painter in a booth for all the sheet metal (all steel, no fiberglass), all new wiring, floor mat, light bulbs, spark plugs, ammeter, brass data plates, firewall and brass rim, exhaust manifold and gaskets, radiator hoses and clamps, fan belt, and new starter switch. You will notice the headlights are marked with a V on the top. The headlights were made by the Velie Automobile Company which was active in the same early years as Ford. These headlights are original from about 1910/1911 and are not aftermarket items. They have been restored and new halogen 12 volt bulbs installed. For the most part, Speedsters were/are "put together cars", similar to later hot rods. While this Speedster is titled as a 1914 model the engine is a 1922, cast in January of that year. In the early years when these cars were first being made the builders of Speedsters would use whatever they could find to build the car they wanted. The car can still be crank started but there is a 12 volt battery under the seat and an alternator and electric starter. I normally start the car on battery using the starter but it will run on magneto but not as well as on the battery. You will note that three of the tires have matching tread while the right rear is a different tread. I debated new tires but some folks would like all white tires and some prefer all black tires. The present tires, while not new, are suitable for most Model T driving----just one has a different tread. You may bid with that in mind. I do have a clear Texas title. Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer and the car is for sale locally so the auction could be ended early if a local sale takes place. Preferred method of payment is wire transfer. You are invited to make a personal inspection before bidding. Thanks for looking.

The 2003 Ford F-Series Super Duty (shown above) introduced the 6.0-liter Power Stroke diesel supplied by Navistar, and while that is an engine Ford would love to forget, it's now one step closer to putting that particular problem behind it. Automotive News is reporting that Ford has settled a class-action lawsuit brought on by problems with this engine that started right out of the gate and ultimately broke up the 30-year relationship between Ford and Navistar.
Owners and lessees of 2003-2007 Super Duty trucks and E-Series vans equipped with the 6.0-liter Power Stroke are eligible for deductible reimbursements of between $50 and $200 from the original five-year/100,000-mile engine warranty, while Ford is paying out as much as $825 for out-of-warranty engine repairs. These repairs may include the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) cooler, EGR valve, oil cooler, fuel injectors and turbocharger, but are only covered if the components failed before six years or 135,000 miles.
In total, Ford has agreed to pay about 50 percent of the value of the repairs and deductibles paid by its customers who submit a claim before the end of this year, and $150,000 is going to the 16 named plaintiffs in the case; Navistar was not included in the lawsuit.
If you're going to build your own hot rod, you'll want to start with a '32 Ford 5-Window Coupe. Favored by American servicemen returning from World War II, the '32 Ford remains the very icon of the hot rod to this day. The trouble is there were only so many of them made in the first place, and finding one today can be a challenge. That's where reproduction models come in.
The aftermarket is replete with companies that will sell you a fiberglass body in the form of a '32 Ford coupe, but quality can be hit or miss. So to help meet demand among hot rod builders and enthusiasts, Ford has teamed up with United Pacific Industries to offer officially licensed body shells.
Announced at the SEMA show in November, the '32 Ford 5-Window Coupe body is made from stamped steel according to original specifications from original machinery where possible or reproduced machinery built to the same original specifications where necessary. The bodies are ready to accept vintage powertrains or crate motors from the Ford Racing catalog, and join the 9,000 other parts offered in the Ford Component Sales catalog - including similar reproduction bodies available for the 1965-70 Mustang and 1940 Ford Coupe. From there, the proverbial sky's the limit.
You know how people refer to someone as having "been around the block" to mean they're very experienced? Well, when it comes to automotive spy photography, Jim Dunne actually laid down the concrete slabs of the block's sidewalk. The unforgettable Dunne more or less invented the car spy game - a fact he cemented by writing book called Car Spy - and has been delivering spy shots and reporting on the industry for some 45 years now. (He also once employed this writer as his impromptu personal chauffer on a Volkswagen trip in Germany, while he slept, but that's a story for a different time.)
In any event, Dunne must be on a mission to prove that "elder statesman" doesn't also mean "washed up" as it is his shots of the upcoming new 2014 Ford Mustang that we've been handed by our friends at KGP Photography.
Mr. Dunne has likely spent the last few years obtaining powerful telescopic lenses, as the Ford in question has clearly been photographed from some distance. Nevertheless, what you see here is visual evidence that the sixth-generation Mustang has moved beyond the mule stage, and is now testing in proper prototype form. Sources indicate that there are production-spec body panels under that baggy canvass dress; but the slightly less bulky silhouette of the new car can be just made out. While the car's bumpers have been removed to obfuscate things, we can tell by way of the camo's apertures that the car's taillights have moved upwards and towards the lip of the tail. A fender vent appears to be visible, too, just behind the front wheel.
