1923 Ford T Bucket Rat Rod Project. This is an Assembled Vehicle and was hand built. It has not been registered or assigned a VIN, but it's easily done in your home State. I will include a notarized Bill of Sale. If you don't feel confident about getting a title, I can do it for you for an additional $400 and a 3 week wait (State Law).
The car features a hand built rectangular steel frame and original 1923 Ford T Bucket steel body, very hard to find. It is powered with a 1970's 472 Cadillac motor (the high performance version) with a Turbo 400 Transmission - both running when removed from the Cadillac 2 years ago. There are still a few things left to complete: the brakes (I will include the pedals and the master cylinder); wiring; plumbing; floorboard; and firewall, as well as a few brackets that need to be made. I will also include the parts to build a roadster style exhaust, but you will have to cut your own head plate as it is not included (they are available on Ebay for about $35). It really wouldn't take much to get this car to run, a couple of weekends and a moderately equipped backyard garage. If you don't feel comfortable but are interested in the car, please feel free to email me for my number and we can discuss a price to make this a running car. It has everything a good Rat Rod should have with a 375+ hp cadi motor, it will be a monster! I just have no time and too many projects.
I can assist you in setting up shipping. I have shipped numerous vehicles all over the States and prices range from $700 to $1200 (note, back to college is a "shipping season" where rates can be a little lower). You can also pickup yourself, I will allow time for travel arrangements within reason and upon full payment.
Please email with any questions.
The Ford Mustang turns 50 years old this year, and this is the logo that will announce the milestone occasion on a special line of merchandise. The graphic is the result of an internal design competition, and Ford will give 50 different companies the license to use it on traditional logo merchandise like shirts and watches, along with some untraditional items like pinball machines.
Ford is going to begin the celebrations at this week's New York Auto Show and continue them throughout the year, but April 17 is the official birthday of the the pony car that just won't quit. You can expect to start seeing anniversary merchandise in the next couple of weeks.
It's only been a couple of years since Ford rolled out the current Fusion, but if these spy shots are anything to go by, it's already planning what appears to be a substantial update for the mid-size sedan.
According to our paparazzi on the ground, the new Fusion is being prepared for launch late in 2016 or early 2017. Although heavily camouflaged to keep it from prying eyes such as ours, it appears that the updated Fusion will tone down the Aston Martin-style grille, ditch the small corner window with revised front side glass and tweak the vehicle's overall shape. But there's more to the new Fusion than a styling adjustment, and our spy photographers have caught a glimpse inside and taken us along.
Apparently the new Fusion is to get a completely overhauled interior with soft-touch surfaces and matte wood trim to make it seem more upscale. There's an all-new rotary gear selector (like you'd find on a Jaguar, for example) hinting at the implementation of a new nine-speed automatic transmission. The prototype appears to be packing the Microsoft SYNC system, suggesting that the new Blackberry QNX system isn't ready quite yet - though that doesn't necessarily mean it won't be ready by the time the new Fusion is.
If the 2014 Transit Connect is anything like it's utile current-generation predecessor, and we suspect it is, it will undoubtedly be one of the most functional vehicles in North America. Ford has used the occasion of SEMA to turn the TC in to things that both make use of that functionality, and occasionally sort of wreck it in the name of good old-fashioned fun. The Ford Hot Wheels Transit Connect most certainly falls into that second category.
Most TC owners might cite the vehicle's massive cargo capacity as its top positive trait, though in the case of this wide-bodied Transit said space has been sapped in the name of a 55-inch television screen, a massive Hot Wheels drag strip (continuing a popular theme at SEMA this year) and custom storage for dozens of models from one's personal hot wheels collection. Designers have also plucked the grippy Recaro seats from the Focus ST, and thrown in a pair of 18-inch tablet screens for connectivity on the go.
Naturally, the Transit Connect wouldn't be an appropriate SEMA vehicle, or Hot Wheels name-bearer, if it weren't wearing an eye-popping appearance package. Additional homage to the Focus RS can be found in the blazing blue and orange front fascia and bumpers, while 20-inch wheels make sure the wider (four-inches in front and six-inches in the back) Transit Connect sits just right. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder-engine that powers the Hot Wheels TC ensures that the concept is more show than go, but you probably had that pegged from your first look, anyway.
