1965 Ford Mustang Fastback 289 V8 Fully restored. Show and Go!
Professionally restored in 2009. The car was rust free and only needed a cosmetic restoration which was done to a
very high standard.
This classic can be driven, enjoyed and has brought home its share of trophies at the local car shows.
Runs fantastic, handles great, and does not have any of the typical rattles of the older ponies.
The overall paint quality is excellent and the car has a great stance. Their is a small paint crack on the
passenger side below the rear glass where the roof begins to curve which is quite common. Other then perhaps a tiny
paint chip or two I believe you will find the body to be show ready.
The rear valance was changed to accommodate the GT style dual trumpet exhaust. Chrome trim, bumpers and glass all
look excellent and the windows roll up and down nicely.
The entire interior looks fantastic and everything works.
A custom Auto Sound Digital AM/FM with a satellite dock was installed in the original radio spot and speakers were
neatly placed into the front kick panels.
The car has the original C-code 289 V8 slightly dressed up with chrome valve covers and air cleaner.
Nicely upgraded to an Edelbrock Preformer 289 Intake and 4bbl carburetor. A nice set of headers was also added and
this car truly preforms like an A-Code 289 would. It pulls very strong and drives very smooth.
Front suspension was redone and although it is manual steering it is a breeze to steer and drives nice and
straight.
Radiator was replaced and it runs nice and cool.
The original door tag (will come with the car) was removed when the car was restored and replaced with a
reproduction door tag that shows the current color. The original vin # stamping is present on the drivers side
inner fender.
The inside of the trunk is nicely detailed and rock solid.
Floor pans and frame rails are in fantastic condition and were lightly undercoated at the time of the restoration.

Detroit 3 small cars lay an egg in latest Consumer Reports reliability study

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 14:31:00 EST

Consumer Reports has released its Annual Auto Reliability Survey and the results are, in a word, interesting. While we already covered the score-damaging effects of infotainment systems, there's another big angle to the data that's getting some attention - the utterly dismal scores of the Detroit Three's small car offerings.
The turbocharged Dodge Dart and Chevrolet Cruze, as well as the Ford Fiesta were their respective brands' lowest-scoring models, a stat that's made worse by the fact that the American automakers finished 25th, 21st and 23rd, respectively.
That's not acceptable for The Detroit Free Press' auto critic, Mark Phelan, who has penned a scathing critique of the D3's small car reliability scores, arguing that GM, Ford and Chrysler are "out of excuses."

Formula Drift kicks off 11th season on Streets of Long Beach

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 17:44:00 EST

The 2014 Formula Drift series kicked off last weekend in Long Beach, and saw Chris Forsberg, who you'll recall went mad and drifted around a warehouse in an Infiniti M, take the title behind the wheel of his Hankook Tire Nissan 370Z (shown above).
Forsberg really ran away with the first round of competition, outscoring his closest opponent, second-place finisher Kenneth Moen and his Bridges Racing Nissan 240SX, by 20 points. Third place was 2013 championship winner Michael Essa and his Yokohama BMW M3, 30.5 points behind Forsberg.
In the manufacturers' title, Nissan took an early lead with 122 points, which isn't a huge surprise considering five of the top ten drifters were piloting either a Z or a product of the brand's S platform. Ford, which had two drivers (Justin Pawlak and Vaughn Gittin, Jr.) in the top ten, took home second place, while BMW is currently third in the manufacturers' standings.

2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost

Fri, 16 May 2014 11:57:00 EST

Earlier this week, Ford invited us to Charlotte, NC, to ride in an all-new 2015 Mustang fitted with its turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder. It's the first forced-induction, four-cylinder ponycar for the Blue Oval since the sun set on the 1986 Mustang SVO. We jumped at the opportunity, as only a handful of people have ever been in the passenger seat of this new car, and most automotive media won't get as close as we did until this fall.
As we revealed in our Deep Dive, Ford will slot this new turbocharged four as premium powerplant between its naturally aspirated 3.7-liter V6 and the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8. At last mention, the automaker said the direct-injected, all-aluminum engine will develop 305 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, returning the best fuel economy of the three powerplants in the process. History buffs will note that those figures are appreciably stouter than the 200 horses and 240 lb-ft that the '86 SVO realized out of the same displacement, and the latter's figures were hugely impressive at the time. On paper, the new EcoBoost four looks to be a good fit for most owners who want to balance performance with efficiency - we were eager to see how it felt from the passenger seat.
