You are looking and a very nice Street Rod that was built as a street rod and finished in 2000 and titled in 2001. The truck was professionally built with no expense spared. This one of, if not the first, Brookville Roadster Pickup body made. Brookville Roadster is the best all steel maker of 1928-32 Ford bodies. They are made exactly like the originals, with the same thickness steel, and Henry Ford could not tell which is original and that which was made by Brookville. The parts are so exact they are interchangeable with originals. This particular truck was pictured on the front of their sales catalog and transported to many shows around the country to promote sales. The truck at that time was just a well built body and rolling chassis. The truck was sold and the custom build was started. The truck speaks for itself and was built using the finest products and accessories. The truck would cost over $100,000.00 to build today.
I have attached a picture of a current Brookville Roadster Pickup kit to show the basic kit price. Keep in mind the kit price doesn't include fenders, high end components, Motor, transmission,or drive train. As you can see it would be very easy to spend $100,000. I have attached a ton of pictures and a link to a video. The following is an incomplete list I am sure of the major features of the truck:

Minor paint rub on very small area inside door jambs (normal for all model A's and not viewable with doors closed)
The list goes on and on and on and I can't remember it all. I am not going to give this car away.

I will assist with loading for your shipper. I live on a nice road and any size truck can get easily to my front door. I will assist with loading the vehicle for shipping. However I will not take the vehicle to a shipping terminal.
You are welcome to come view the vehicle or have someone come inspect it. I will not however let you or your inspector drive this vehicle. I will take you for a test ride but I have too much money invested to let a stranger drive my truck.
The vehicle has won best in show and its latest win was last week with a top 50 win in a very large 60th anniversary show (2nd place to 50th place received same trophy). I was told I was in the top 10.

Connected cars are coming en-masse. We know this much. How, though, remains something of an open question, especially as two of the world's largest tech companies are preparing to battle for control of your car's dashboard. On the one hand, we have Apple and its CarPlay system. And now, we know what Google has been working on with Auto Link.
Fri, 25 Jan 2013 15:45:00 EST
Its new name is Android Auto, and yes, it's based off the Android architecture that is the primary challenger to Apple's iOS mobile operating system. Announced at Google's I/O conference today, Android Auto functions similarly to CarPlay - owners will need to plug their smartphones into their cars to access the full breadth of capability.
In Android Auto's case, that means a wealth of voice controls to limit distracted driving. Google's marquee apps will be available when the interface arrives in production models later this year, including Google Play Music, Google Maps and voice-activated texting and text playback. Meanwhile, developers will be able to begin designing custom apps for the new system via an upcoming software development kit.
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.
The pickup market is so competitive that all three major American makers are constantly trying to find a way to prove their product is the best. The new 2015 Ford F-150 is grabbing headlines at the moment by winning awards and posting segment best numbers. But in a new video, Chevrolet is taking aim squarely at the 2015 F-250 Super Duty in a battle of heavy-duty truck supremacy against the 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD... well, in a single metric anyway.
The big numbers from pickups often come down to payload, towing rating and fuel economy, but for this test, Chevy and Howie Long are challenging the torsional rigidity of the trucks' frames, specifically which one flexes less. Long plays the everyman here having the Chevy engineer explain what's going on in the tests. Unsurprisingly for a video on Chevy's official YouTube page, the 2500HD wins out by a good margin. The company also reports that similar results as shown here have been certified in third-party testing.
Check out the video to see the full test. While this might seem like a marketing win for Chevy, Ford isn't immune to it, either. In 2009, the Blue Oval uploaded a similar video comparing the flex under 225 pounds of weight from the bare frames of the F-150, Chevy Silverado, Dodge Ram (as it was still called at the time) and the Toyota Tundra. The results fell in the Blue Oval's favor, as you can see here.
