Well folks let me begin by saying that it was always a dream of mine to restore a 60's Ford Mustang. I began to piece together my plan at the begining of the year when I found this original California 1966 Mustang in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately my family comes first and an unforeseen medical emergency puts my plans on hold for now. I am listing this coupe for sale and prepared to take a loss to sell it fast!!! Car had been stripped of its original 289 engine and 3 speed manual transmission but the body is in excellent condition. NO RUST ANYWHERE!!!! The engine bay, interior floors and under carriage have already been re-sprayed. This is a great project to finish, just pick your engine, interior color and exterior paint. I have already done the following since April 2013:
New complete suspension ($500)
New front disc brakes ($500)
New rear drum brakes ($200)
New rear leaf springs and shocks ($250)
New Shelby Hood ($800)
New front valance ($150)
New rear GT valance ($150 not yet installed)
New GT trumpet exhaust tips ($125 not yet installed)
New steeering wheel ($150 Turqouise, not yet installed)
New gas tank and kit ($150 not yet installed)
New emblems ( $50 not yet installed)
I also have all the original trim, seat frames (re-welded & painted), dash parts, wiring harness, windows, glass and additional parts ready to go with the car. I was setting up this car to be automatic so I also have a C4 automatic transmission ($400) from another 66 Mustang that will go with the sale.
Email me with questions and concerns or for additional pictures. Good luck!
Buyer responsible for pick up but buyer will assist with reputible transport company contact used in the past.
Car is also listed for sale locally so I reserve the right to pull the car from auction at any time.
Ford has announced that it is introducing "calibration updates designed to improve on-road fuel economy for owners of the 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid, 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid and 2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid."
We can speculate that these changes are at least due in part to lawsuits over mileage claims of hybrid vehicles. The automaker is enhancing 2013 models starting in August by raising their electric cruising speed to 85 miles per hour from 62 mph, optimizing the use of active grille shutters and the climate control system, shortening the engine warm-up period by 50 percent and reducing electric fan speed to minimize the fan's energy consumption.
It bears mentioning that Ford is doing pretty well in the US electrified vehicle market this year. The company claims to have grown its share in the segment by 12 points to 16 percent while taking a high number of Toyota Prius trade-ins in the process. Conversely, Toyota has experienced a five-percent drop in new-Prius sales over the same period. Additionally, Ford states that it has increased its share of the US vehicle market by one percent this year, more than any full-line automaker.
It's official: A panel of female automotive writers has chosen the Ford Fiesta 1.0-liter EcoBoost as the Womens World Car of the Year, and it beat tough competition like the Mazda CX-5, Range Rover and Porsche Boxster S for the overall top spot.
The CX-5 and Range Rover won the SUV and Luxury Car categories, respectively, and the Boxster S laid claim to the Sports Car category, beating the runner up Audi RS5 and third place Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ (or Scion FR-S). The Audi Allroad was named the Family car of the year.
The panel consisted of 18 female automotive writers from around the world tasked with picking the best car in each of eight categories, including top vehicle overall, using criteria that women utilize when shopping for a car. That includes safety, value-for-money, aesthetic appearance, storage space, child-friendliness, ease-of-driving, color, sex appeal and environmental footprint.
Ford's been a supporter of EAA AirVenture, a huge, annual air show held in Oshkosh, WI, for several years now, with one of its most notable contributions being a modified Ford Mustang, designed to look like one of America's great fighting aircraft. There was an SR-71 Mustang, based on the legendary spy plane, a Red Tails edition, which honored the ground-breaking Tuskegee Airmen of World War II, as well as Blue Angels and Thunderbird Mustangs, based on America's two great military aerial demonstration teams.
Each car is auctioned off, with all proceeds going to the EAA Young Eagles program, which introduces kids to the joy of flight. For the 2014 AirVenture, which runs from July 28 to August 3, the one-off pony car is based on the new-for-2015 Mustang, and America's latest fighting aircraft - the controversial F-35 Lightning II.
The unique Mustang sports titanium paint scheme, with both glossy and matte sections, as well as yellow-and-blue trim and decal elements inspired by CF-1, the first F-35 test plane. A carbon-fiber front splitter and rear diffuser add some visual eye candy, while the interior boasts a set of Recaro seats. Ford also opted to fit unique wheels and a brawnier rear spoiler, to tie everything together.
