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.

Ford Focus EV's slow sales trigger massive incentives

Fri, 25 Jan 2013 15:45:00 EST

The Detroit News reports Ford is having real trouble moving its new Focus Electric. As a result, the automaker is offering substantial incentives in an attempt to lure in more buyers. How substantial? Try $10,750 off of a three-year lease. What's more, the EV can now be had for $37,995 ($2,000 less than its original base price) on top of an additional $2,000 cash discount to buy the EV outright - or you can opt for 1.9-percent financing if you work through Ford Motor Credit. None of which factors in various potential government incentives. Last year, Ford managed to sell a paltry 685 of the 1,627 Focus EV hatchbacks it built.
Ford isn't alone in trying to woo more buyers to its EV effort. Nissan cut the price of its Leaf by a whopping 18 percent for 2013, now down to $28,800 and built in the USA. The move followed the automaker's substantial incentives in 2012.
If you want a Focus Electric, you can now apparently get your hands on one for as little as $285 per month with $930 due at signing for a 36-month lease with 10,500 miles per year.

Hurricane Sandy cost automakers 15,000 vehicles, may have ruined up to 200k

Wed, 07 Nov 2012 16:29:00 EST

Hurricane Sandy was the largest Atlantic storm in US history, and its total economic impact is just now coming into view. According to Automotive News, Toyota, Chrysler, Nissan and Honda are set to scrap around 15,000 new vehicles ruined by the storm. Nissan alone accounts for about 40 percent of those, with 6,000 Nissan and Infiniti models deeded "un-saleable" due to damage. The company saw 56 dealerships shuttered due to the storm, but 51 of those have since reopened.
Toyota, meanwhile, had some 4,000 vehicles at its Newark port facility, and of those, 3,000 may be scrapped. An additional 825 were dealer inventory when they were ruined. Honda and Acura dealers are reportedly sending 3,440 vehicles to the salvage yard. By comparison, Chrysler weathered the storm fairly well with 825 units destroyed, while Hyundai suffered only 400 lost units and Kia scrapped around 200.
As you may recall, Fisker also suffered some losses, and Automotive News reports the manufacturer saw 320 Karma models damaged beyond repair. Ford and General Motors have yet to come up with estimates, and no automaker has commented on the full cost of replacing the vehicles.

F-150 just the start of Ford's aluminum plans

Tue, 14 Jan 2014 14:31:00 EST

Not only have we been told that the 2015 Ford F-150 is tougher, more durable and up to 700 pounds lighter than the current truck, Ford COO Mark Fields said it's also "CAFE-positive." That means, for the first time in the history of corporate average fuel economy standards, the F-150 would be a positive contributor on Ford's CAFE balance sheet instead of being a vehicle it needs to counterbalance with frugal offerings.
Fields' comments made at the Detroit Auto Show were among quotes from other Ford execs that confirmed the carmaker will be using aluminum for more of its vehicles. CEO Alan Mulally said it would "proliferate across our lineup," with speculation being that we'll see it applied to crossover and sport utility models first, since they'll benefit the most. Even gaining the massive scale of using aluminum on the world's best selling vehicle for its first effort - on average, the company sells two times as many F-150s in a single day as Land Rover sells of its aluminum Range Rover in a month - Ford will be looking to further spread the cost of its five-year development investment in aluminum technology. And that should mean better handling and fuel economy for those of us who don't need to wear hardhats at the office.
