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.

Total auto recalls already on record pace in 2014

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 18:30:00 EST

If you've noticed that there have been more recalls than usual this year, you may be on to something. According to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the US market is on pace to break a record for recalls. In 2013, 22 million cars were recalled. We're only a third of the way through 2014, though, and we've already halved that figure, with 11 million units recalled. That's wild.
Considering the past few months, it shouldn't be a surprise that General Motors is leading the charge, with six million of the 11 million units recalled coming from one of the General's four brands. Between truck recalls, CUV recalls and the ignition switch recall, 2014 hasn't been a great year for GM.
Other recall leaders include Nissan (one million Sentra and Altima sedans), Honda (900,000 Odyssey minivans), Toyota (over one million units in a few recalls), Volkswagen (150,000 Passat sedans), Chrysler (644,000 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs) and most recently, Ford (434,000 units, the bulk of which were early Ford Escape CUVs). So while it's been a bad year for GM so far, its competitors aren't doing too well, either.

Toyota again claims Corolla outsold Focus worldwide

Wed, 10 Apr 2013 16:23:00 EST

Toyota isn't convinced the Ford Focus was the best-selling nameplate globally last year. Bloomberg reports that for the second time in seven months, both Toyota and Ford are laying claim to the title. Ford cites R.L. Polk & Co. data that says the automaker moved some 1.02 million Focus models in 2012 compared to just 872,774 Toyota Corolla units. But Toyota says the actual figure is closer to 1.16 million Corolla models.
Last year, Ford said it took the sales crown through the fist half of 2012 based on information from IHS Automotive, but Toyota pointed out those numbers left out models like the Corolla-based Matrix and Auris, as well as the Corolla Fielder and Scion xB-based Corolla Rumion. Whether or not Toyota's belief that all these cars should be counted in the Corolla bucket is accurate or not is seemingly up for debate... as is the question of why it matters so much to both parties.
This time around, Ford is holding the line that the Focus is the "best-selling nameplate," with Erich Merkle, a US sales analyst with Ford saying the company's figure is, "a pure number that is verified by a third party." Toyota, meanwhile, has requested clarification from Polk.

Ford F-450 claims best-in-class towing, company abandons practice of removing items to boost payload number

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 18:30:00 EST

The ongoing heavy-duty truck battle between Ford and Ram is showing no signs of slowing down. The Blue Oval is trying to remove at least one point of contention between the two brands by testing its 2015 F-450 Super Duty using the Society of Automotive Engineers J2807 towing standard, which Ram also uses. In the new evaluation, the F-450 is rated at a max towing capacity of 31,200 pounds. That's an identical amount as under Ford's own, previous test.
"We leave no doubt with customers that the F-450 pickup truck has best-in-class towing of 31,200 pounds - whether tested using our own internal towing standards or SAE J2807," said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president for Global Product Development, in the company's release.
At the same time, Ford is also changing how it calculates the F-450's payload. Instead of using its minimum curb weight as before, the brand is now using the truck's base curb weight. The revision lowers the pickup's rating to 5,300 pounds, compared to 5,450 pounds previously. The company said in its announcement that the reason for this is "aligning its payload rating practices with other manufacturers to make it easier for customers to compare vehicles." General Motors made a similar switch for its pickups in August.
