You are bidding on a 1956 ford C800 Big Job and a 1990 F5 frame with 460 EFI w/Auto trans. The F5 frame has only 38,000 miles. I was going to build a car hauler but I have to many projects and I don't see myself getting to this in the next two years so it has to go. I bought this truck out of a barn in the state of Oregon. The truck started it's life at lumber yard delivering wood. After 15 years of service one of the employees bought the truck and took it home. He worked on it and fixed it up. For the next 35 years he used it to haul fire wood for his house. The owner fell sick and the truck was parked for 7 years in a large Carport. I purchased the truck a year ago and had it shipped to Michigan. I did nothing to it. Body is very solid. Many of the places that the cabs rot are solid in this cab. The Drip rail is soild and the dog house is solid. The running boards and fenders are solid as is most of the cab. There is rust one area of rust on the passenger side floor board. I have included pictures.
After I found the the Truck I looked for a donor frame and found a 1990 motor home with Air assisted springs and only 38000 miles on it. It has Frame has a air conditioning and cruise control. Disk Breaks on the front and drum breaks in the rear. It is an F5 frame which as far as I can tell means it is F-550 suspension but you might want to double check that. The F5 frame runs the Truck does not. The previous owner told me it ran when he parked it but since I was only going use the cab I never spent any time trying to get it running. You will get the original oregon title for the truck and a bill of sale for the Frame. Good luck bidding on it. I am going to miss her when she is gone.

The Detroit News reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has officially closed its investigations into 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2004-2005 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey models. The separate probes found no issues that pose safety concerns. NHTSA began investigating certain Grand Cherokee SUVs over complaints that power steering hoses could detach during operation, thereby increasing the risk of a vehicle fire. Of the 24 reports of failure, none alleged smoke or fire in the engine bay, and Chrysler has since modified the power steering cooler assembly to reduce the likelihood of the failure.

Meanwhile, certain Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey vehicles garnered a government probe after receiving complaints that the models were equipped with faulty scissor jacks. The agency had received six reports of the jacks failing or causing injuries, including one incident that resulted in a fatality. But NHTSA says the jack failure rate is similar to those found in other vehicles. In those six cases, the government agency found the jacks were being used for something other than changing a tire, and investigators could not determine whether the emergency brake was set or the rear tires were properly chocked.
The Ford Everest Concept SUV at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show shows the future of the Blue Oval's truck line in China. While a concept for now, we're told that JMC, Ford's Chinese joint-venture partner, will build a production version sometime in the near future.

With design from Ford's Asia Pacific design team, the handsome seven-passenger SUV shows off some very muscular styling with wraparound headlights that hook into the contours of the angular trapezoidal grille. The beltline rises up the body in the rear and makes the back appear higher than the front. The rear is made from hard, chiseled contours that give the truck a very tough look. The Everest looks ready for some rough roads.
Ford is keeping the interior and mechanical details about the Everest a secret for now, but the SUV is rumored to share some components with the overseas Ranger pickup. The company has no plans to sell the truck in North America. Scroll down to read the official announcement, including the few details on its production.
The V8 grunt of the Mustang has defined Ford performance cars in the US for the last 50 years, but in Europe, the Blue Oval has nearly as a long history of building some of the best hot hatches on the market with the Fiesta, Escort and later the Focus. The latest Fiesta ST has just hit the roads on both sides of the pond and has been enthusiastically received thanks to its combination of a peppy, turbocharged engine and hatchback utility.
However, Europe is getting a bumper crop of hot hatches at the moment, including the forthcoming, third-generation Mini Cooper S. Should Ford have waited to launch the ST until it knew how the competition performed? That's the answer that Xcar is after in its latest video, and it took the Fiesta to the track and some very misty, Welsh roads to find out. Scroll down to find out whether the ST stacks up.
