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.

Ford may have tied together much of its global lineup under the One Ford campaign, but one market where it still offers unique products is Australia. That will soon draw to a close as well, but before it does, the Blue Oval's Aussie operations are rolling out refreshed versions of its two unique products. For the moment, Ford isn't revealing much in the way of powertrain details, but it has shown off a couple of snaps of the revised products on its in-market Twitter feed.
First up is the new Territory. The SUV is neither based on a front-drive crossover platform nor on a truck frame, but shares its rear-drive underpinnings with the Falcon, taking it a step beyond the Falcon wagon alongside which it sits in Ford's Aussie range. Like the outgoing third-generation SZ Territory, the facelifted version is dominated by a narrow grille and larger front air dam, but further punctuates its big-chinned look with more rugged lower cladding and other metallic inserts that bring its look up to date.
And there's the Falcon, which Ford revealed in XR8 trim just last week and is now presenting in G6E spec. If the XR8 is the performance model, the G6E is the luxury version, swapping in more refined trim like a chrome-slat grille (instead of a black honeycomb), chrome foglamp surrounds, less-aggressive multi-spoke wheels (instead of five-spokes) and a flatter hood (instead of a power bulge). Otherwise, it looks essentially the same as the one we saw last week, its facelift bringing it more in line with the smaller, front-drive Mondeo (which we know here as the Fusion) and other members of the Ford family.

A 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder takes over where the old 2.0 left off, making 270 hp and 300 lb-ft.
Right now, around 23 percent of all Ford vehicles sold in the United States is a utility vehicle. By 2020, Ford expects that figure to increase all the way to 29 percent. Put simply, SUVs and crossovers are very big business at Ford. So, when it comes time to update the Explorer, Ford's original sport utility vehicle, you can be sure that a whole heck of a lot of effort goes into the process.
Just when you thought you'd figured the fullsize truck market out, Ford goes and throws us a massive curve ball with the 2015 F-150. The big headline news aren't tow or payload ratings, though we're sure those figures will be fully competitive if not class leading, they haven't yet been announced. Instead, the big headline news Ford is highlighting are the truck's new aluminum-intensive structure and 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine.
And with good reason - all that aluminum means that Ford was able to cut a massive 700 pounds from the truck's curb weight. That is going to cause all sorts of great things to happen to the 2015 F-150's driving dynamics, performance and fuel efficiency, not to mention its ability to haul heavy loads. For those customers worried about the strength of aluminum versus the more conventional steel, Ford is quick to point out that many military vehicles, such as the HMMWV and Bradley Fighting Vehicle, use a very similar sort of aluminum alloy in their construction.
It's also worth mentioning that the backbone, a fully boxed ladder frame, is hewn from high-strength steel. Ford says "2015 Ford F-150 is the strongest and most durable F-150 ever," for what it's worth, claiming that "torture tested" in labs and in the real world for more than 10 million miles. What's more, the truck, in disguised form, completed all 883 miles of the Baja 1000.
