First and foremost this is a REPLICA. I have had several and this is by far the nicest, best looking, most
detailed, and best driving example to date. The build started with an early (pre-merger) MidStates fiberglass body
and chassis, built before the Shell Valley merger. The paint, panel gaps, and overall quality of this car are top
notch without the squeaks, rattles, and other characteristics of lesser builds. The underside of the car is
painted in most places and extremely nice as well. This car is well sorted out, has the best of everything
available at the time of the build, and will turn more heads than most exotics. It is an absolute animal when you
want it to be, but has really good street manners for a 600+ hp 427 stuffed inside a 2000 lbs car.

It is titled as a 1965 Ford and has a clean title,


ENGINE- This car features a true, Serial #CSX495, all aluminum FE, Shelby motor. The engine has a Scat stroker
crank, Oliver billet rods, Wiseco pistons, Edelbrock Performer FE ported heads, Edelbrock 427 victor Victor intake,
and Ferrea stainless racing valves. A massive King Demon 795 carburetor sits on top of it all. The engine made
580HP/586ft lbs on pump gas. This thing sounds like a cross between a Nascar, a Harley, and a top fuel dragster
and is extremely angry.

Transmission- Tremec TKO road race 5-speed transmission with mid-shift shifter position. Lakewood bell housing,
Mcloed clutch, pressure plate, and hydraulic throw out bearing.

Rear End- 9" Ford, custom narrowed with Moser axels, richmond ring and pinion (3.73), and Strange Limited Slip
differential.

Suspension- 4-Link suspension set up with adjustable Alden shocks and coil-overs.

Brakes/Misc- Wilwood disc up front, 1980 Trans Am rotors with Cadillac disc in back. Wilwood portioning valve,
and Ford brake booster and master cylinder. All brake and hard fuel lines are stainless.

Appearance/Other- The car features 15" Halibrand style knockoff replicas (5 lug) with 235/60-15s in the front and
295/50-15s in the rear. The wipers, all lights, heater, and all gauges work like intended. The dash features an
MSD timing control knob.

NHTSA releases updated Takata airbag recalled cars list, but it still has errors

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:31:00 EST



Unfortunately, the government's list still contains errors.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued an updated list of vehicle models that it's urging owners to repair under the mushrooming Takata airbag inflator recall. The latest version adds vehicles from new automakers like Subaru and Ford that are missing from the original announcement, and it also removes erroneous entries from General Motors, leaving only the 2005 Saab 9-2X (a reskinned Subaru WRX), and the 2003-2005 Pontiac Vibe, a joint project with Toyota.

Fitting Retirement: Grand Marquis last Mercury off the line

Wed, 05 Jan 2011 09:00:00 EST

The signs have come down and retail production ended back in October of 2010. Now, the very last Mercury model has rolled off the assembly line. This last Mercury somewhat fittingly takes the form of a Grand Marquis reporting for fleet duty. It was built at the St. Thomas plant in Ontario, Canada, which is the same facility that continues to produce the Ford Crown Victoria and Lincoln Town Car for fleet and livery duty.
St. Thomas' days are numbered, however, as the factory is slated to close on August 31. When it goes, the Panther platform is likely to follow. So long, and thanks for all the fish memories.

Ford says 70% of its models to get stop-start by 2017

Sun, 15 Dec 2013 17:59:00 EST

Ford is following up on a report we posted a few weeks back that the Blue Oval would be adding stop-start technology to its entire model range. Now, the Dearborn-based automaker has announced that the fuel-saving feature would be available on 70 percent of the company's range by 2017.
Ford claims the technology will improve fuel economy by around 3.5 percent, although its actual effect will vary based on how the owner drives - apparently up to a 10-percent improvement is possible for those who sit in heavy traffic (Los Angelenos, this means you). The latest recipient of the technology is the updated 2014 Ford Fiesta with the company's three-cylinder EcoBoost powerplant.
Part of the reasoning for the new addition has to do with cost. Ford claims the tech is affordable and easy to implement. "Simply put, Auto Start-Stop helps customers use less fuel, which is an important component of Ford's Blueprint for Sustainability," Ford's global powertrain vice president, Bob Fascetti, said.
