For Sale this original 1946 Ford 59AB Flat head V8.  This is as original as it gets.  Original seats, cab, motor, drive train, horn, vacuum wipers, door locks, steering column lock with key, parking brake, dimmer light and switch.  Original tailgate with chains.  I was the second owner of this vehicle.  I have owned the truck for 43 years.  This is the truck I drove when I was in college.  Had a lot of beautiful girls in the original front seat as well as lounging around in the bed box. All floor boards are good as well as the floor box which is metal. Doors are clean and all work properly, no rust.   Have not driven the truck for over 15 years however I put a new battery in it and it turned over and fired up.  All gauges were working as well as turn signals and brake lights when driven last.  It is definately a one of a kind original survivor and has not been messed with.  To go with this I have a brand new set of factory equipment running boards that I purchased 40 years ago.  Does not need new running boards at present but they would be nice to have.  Also have a brand new bought 40 years ago left front fender.  In addition I have a matching Ford 59AB flat head motor that I also have had over 40 years.  Ran beautifully and has been kept in my basement.  With that I have two original equipment carbureators, starter, coil, original oil bath air cleaner as well as 2 original equipment coils and wires and other odds and ends that could go with this vehicle.  A lot of memories with this truck but getting older and am trying to downsize since I have quite a few other beautiful vehicles so if I get the right price I will go ahead and sell it.  I haven't seen another 1946 Ford in original condition like this one in this shape anywhere.  I have posted pictures of the running boards, extra engine and parts.  I you have any questions email me back through e-bay or you can call me at 618-893-4343.

2015 Ford F-150 appearance guide takes the truck from mild to wild with options

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 14:34:00 EST

We already know that the 2015 Ford F-150 has a base price coming in at just $395 more than the 2014 model, despite all of the new standard tech and aluminum-intensive construction in the upcoming version. Now the Blue Oval is finally giving us an idea of what that extra money actually buys customers, with the release of the appearance guide for its latest pickup.
The guide basically explains everything you could want to know about what changes occur among the multitude of trims on the 2015 F-150. There are five levels for the new truck. Although, that is something of a misnomer because most of them are also available with either Sport or Chrome packages, plus the FX4 Off-Road option with Hill Descent Control, an electronic-locking rear axle, off-road shocks and skid plates. With 13 available colors, including 4 new ones, and 14 wheel designs in various sizes, pickup buyers should have no problem specing one to fit their style.
The lineup starts out with the base XL with a black grille and fascia and 17-inch wheels. However, across most of the range the Sport and Chrome packages are also available to add either body-color or chrome accents, respectively. Next up is the XLT with a standard chrome grille but also available with a black, billet-style one with a body-color surround. Things really start getting plush with the Lariat model with leather trim, a three-bar front end and 18-inch wheels. The King Ranch sticks with that look but adds power running boards, 20-inch wheels and two-tone paint. Finally, the top-dog Platinum is all about bling with yet another frontal design, chrome door handles and mirror caps, a big logo running across the tailgate and more.

Ford C-Max Solar Energi takes a recharging station wherever it goes

Wed, 08 Jan 2014 08:28:00 EST

Companies ranging in size from small startups to major automakers have been experimenting with solar-powered charging stations for EVs and plug-in hybrids. And, of course, people have been powering vehicles with onboard solar panels for quite some time, too. Still, Ford's new C-Max Solar Energi Concept shows the promise of a truly practical implementation of solar on a production vehicle, and it may not be as far off in the future as we had thought.
As we reported a few days ago, the Solar concept makes use of a "concentrator lens" that focuses sunlight onto the Ford's roof-mounted solar panels. The special lens follows the rays of the sun to maximize the amount of charge being fed to the batteries of the car, taking about a day to fully charge the 21-mile, all-electric range of the C-Max Energi. Ford data suggests that combination might be enough to power 75 percent of all trips made by a statistically average driver. In turn, using the sun to power a vehicle could reduce yearly C02 emissions by up to four metric tons when compared with the driver of an average gasoline-powered sedan.
We've got live images of the C-Max Solar Energi Concept, jauntily tilted on its display to best present it's signature solar panels, straight from the CES floor.

Ford of Europe celebrates Mondeo's 20th anniversary

Wed, 25 Sep 2013 10:15:00 EST

Ford's European operations are celebrating a milestone of sorts as the Mondeo, the Blue Oval's bread-and-butter D-segment sedan in the old country, celebrates its 20th anniversary. The mid-sizer, which was sold in the US for a short time as the Contour, has been a far more popular vehicle in Europe - even receiving regular praise from one Jeremy Clarkson.
Narrated by Cockney actor Ray Winstone, the video goes through the Mondeo's years and how it's evolved from 1993 to the as-yet-unreleased fifth-generation model, which is essentially the same as the Ford Fusion that's sold in America. Take a look below for the full video from Ford of Europe.
