Feel free to ask me any questions about the car : dirk.schuck@clovermail.net .

We are selling our 1969 Mustang Mach 1. This is an original 4 speed with the numbers matching 428 Cobra Jet, as it
carries the Q engine code. This is an absolutely beautiful example of a rotisserie restoration. Every nut and bolt
was taken off when this holy grail of a mustang was restored.
The Interior is all brand new, and has the rear sport deck seat, allowing it to fold down, an option original to
the car from the factory. The car has the orginial factory tilt away steering column, along with a functioning
factory tach. Headliner is flawless.
The Engine and the trans were both completely rebuilt, and the car runs and drives flawlessly. The engine is the
numbers matching original block that the car came with from the factory. The clutch is also brand new, with no more
than 300 miles on it. The Engine has Edelbrock Aluminum heads and an Aluminum intake. The car also has power disc
brakes and power steering, both original options from the factory. Being completely rebuilt, the four speed trans
shifts like butter, and also has a complete Hurst shifting assembly. The original shift knob and complete original
linkage is also included with the car. The rear end is a ford 9 inch and is a 3.50 Traction-Lok rear, exactly what
it came with from the factory.
The body on this mach 1 is laser straight, and the red paint job is absolutely beautiful. The Decals and striping
are perfect. The Matte black on the hood, spoiler, and louvers is beautifully done. All of the body panel gaps are
very well executed. Doors shut great. All of the door jams look as good as the body. Trunk is very clean. The under
body is painted the original red oxide, and carries all of the factory markings that this particular car came with.
This car is priced to sell. I can have a video walk around of the entire car made for serious buyers. Digital copy
of Deluxe Marti Report is included.

Ford investing $500M in engine plant for 2.7L EcoBoost production

Sun, 30 Mar 2014 13:09:00 EST

Ohio is a hot area for Ford at the moment with the announcement just a few weeks ago that production of the next-generation F-650/F-750 medium-duty trucks would move from Mexico to the Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake, Ohio. Now, Ford is investing $500 million to hire 300 workers at its Lima Engine Plant in Lima, Ohio, to add production of the twin-turbo 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 for the 2015 F-150.
The latest investment will be used to add a new flexible engine assembly system and renovate 700,000 square feet of the plant for machining and assembly areas. The Lima factory already builds Ford's 3.5-liter and 3.7-liter Duratec V6 engines. The plant opened in 1957, and it's on track to build its 40 millionth engine later this year.
Ford claims that the 2.7-liter EcoBoost will offer V8 performance with better efficiency in the F-150. It comes standard with intelligent stop/start that doesn't activate when the truck is towing or in four-wheel drive, and it's made from a combination of compacted graphite iron and aluminum for low weight and high strength. The company says that V6 engines have already proven popular in the F-150 with 57 percent of trucks in 2014 being equipped with either the naturally aspirated 3.7-liter or turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost engines.

Is it time for American carmakers to give up on dual-clutch transmissions? [w/poll]

Mon, 22 Jul 2013 19:31:00 EST

Last week, in the midst of Detroit's first days seeking relief in Chapter 9 of the bankruptcy code, Automotive News contributor Larry P. Vellequette penned an editorial suggesting that American car companies raise the white flag on dual clutch transmissions and give up on trying to persuade Americans to buy cars fitted with them. Why? Because, Vellequette says, like CVT transmissions, they "just don't sound right or feel right to American drivers." (Note: In the article, it's not clear if Vellequette is arguing against wet-clutch and dry-clutch DCTs or just dry-clutch DCTs, which is what Ford and Chrysler use.) The article goes on to state that Ford and Chrysler have experimented with DCTs and that both consumers and the automotive press haven't exactly given them glowing reviews, despite their quicker shifts and increased fuel efficiency potential compared to torque-converter automatic transmissions.
Autoblog staffers who weighed in on the relevance of DCTs in American cars generally disagreed with the blanket nature of Vellequette's statement that they don't sound or feel right, but admit that their lack of refinement compared to traditional automatics can be an issue for consumers. That's particularly true in workaday cars like the Ford Focus and Dodge Dart, both of which have come in for criticism in reviews and owner surveys. From where we sit, the higher-performance orientation of such transmissions doesn't always meld as well with the marching orders of everyday commuters (particularly if drivers haven't been educated as to the transmission's benefits and tradeoffs), and in models not fitted with paddle shifters, it's particularly hard for drivers to use a DCT to its best advantage.
Finally, we also note that DCT tuning is very much an evolving science. For instance, Autoblog editors who objected to dual-clutch tuning in the Dart have more recently found the technology agreeable in the Fiat 500L. Practice makes perfect - or at least more acceptable.

2014 Ford Fiesta Titanium

Mon, 28 Oct 2013 12:01:00 EST

You might not be interested in owning a subcompact (B-segment) hatchback for $20,000. Let's be clear from the get go here: there are any number of reasonable arguments for staying away from the highest-content versions of these small cars. Ford's player in the B-segment arena is the newly updated 2014 Fiesta, and the Titanium trim represents the most luxurious instantiation of the model. We recently were loaned a Fiesta Titanium for a week, whose final sticker price hit $20,390, with navigation being the only standalone option added to the bottom line. By way of comparison, the most basic version of the all new, one-segment-up Mazda3 hatchback costs $19,740 with delivery and destination accounted for, and no options added on.
Hold on to that thought for a moment, we'll get back to it.
