This vehicle is powered by, I believe, the original 292 Y block V8 with a Ford Autolite 4V carburetor and dual
exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. It starts instantly and runs very nice. The transmission is the cast iron 3 speed
cruiseomatic and the rear is the indestructible Ford 9" . It also has power steering, which has just recently had
the control valve and cylinder rebuilt, and power drum brakes. I also just replaced the alternator.

The chrome including bumpers, emblems, trim, and door handles are excellent.The front bumper was replaced shortly
after I received the car due to an incident which happened during transporting the car to me, and at the same time
both turn signal surrounds were slightly creased, which is visible in the 7th and 8th photos. I did purchase a very
nice pair to have rechromed and replace them, but then decided not to, because the slight damage is not real
noticeable. I will include the two extra ones with the car, and also I have a new complete set of the gold anodized
aluminum side inserts that will come with the car. They probably were not available at time of restoration. All
the stainless steel trim has been polished. The 15 X 6" front and 15X8" American polished 5 spokes are very nice.
Tires are like new 215/65 front and 255/60 rear. The windshield and two side windows appear to have been replaced,
and in excellent condition. The rear window is excellent and original with the Ford script, and the vent widows are
also original, but have some bubbling around the edges.

The beautiful interior was professionally redone just before I purchased it. The newly upholstered power seat is
from a later model Ford Crown Victoria and fits like it belongs there. I believe the white surfaces of the seat is
leather. last year I restored the original steering wheel, and the speedometer cluster. It has an amplified after
market sound system, which can blow your ears out, which was installed in 2013 with receipts for over $400.00, but
the stock Ford AM radio is not a functional unit

Ford shows off V8-powered Ranger headed to Dakar Rally

Tue, 30 Jul 2013 10:31:00 EST

Avert your eyes now if you're jealous that the global version of the Ford Ranger is not offered in the US. Ford's midsize pickup is being tuned up to take on the 2014 Dakar Rally, and the result is a truck that is probably even cooler than any F-150 SVT Raptor we've ever seen in the States. Ford is actually building two versions of the truck for Dakar, which will run from January 5 through January 18, covering more than 5,000 miles from Argentina to Chile.
Starting with a fully composite body and a 5.0-liter V8 plucked from a Mustang, nearly every aspect of the trucks have been purpose built to take on the grueling race. This includes things like the six-speed sequential gearbox, liquid-cooled rear brakes and the 132-gallon fuel tank. As proof that Dakar is more about endurance than speed, the engines used in these race trucks will be limited to around 350 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque, and will max out at a top speed of just 105 miles per hour. Scroll down for Ford's official press release offering more information about the trucks and teams being prepped for Dakar.

Car companies used to cook up sales with recipe books

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 08:45:00 EST

The evolution of automotive marketing has undergone a number of strange phases. Few, though, match the strangeness of the 1930s to 1950s, when automotive marketers turned to cookbooks as a means of promoting their vehicles. Yes, cookbooks. We can't make this stuff up, folks.
This bizarre trend led to General Motors distributing cookbooks under the guise of its then-subsidiary Frigidaire. Ford, meanwhile, offered a compilation of recipes from Ford Credit Employees (shown above). The cookbook-craze wasn't limited to domestic manufacturers, though. As The Detroit News discovered, both Rolls-Royce and Volkswagen got in on the trend, although not until the 1970s.
The News has the full story on this strange bit of marketing. Head over and take a look.

Ford rethinking vehicle launch strategy

Tue, 07 May 2013 16:27:00 EST

With a new boss at the helm, Ford is looking at new ways to improve its vehicle launches in North America to prevent recent issues that have popped up with models like the Lincoln MKZ, Ford Escape and Ford Fusion. Speaking with Automotive News, Ford's new president of the Americas, Joe Hinrichs, revealed a few ways the automaker plans to avoid early build issues such as the engine fires on certain 2013 Escape and Fusion models and months-long delays for customers to receive their MKZs.
It sounds like the root of the problems may have been Ford's relationship with suppliers compounded by the fact that the product surge came on the heels of the recent industry-crippling recession, and in the AN article, Hinrichs says improvements are being made to reduce problems during the launch of new or redesigned models. Three such improvements that were implemented during the first quarter of this year including more rigorous quality comparisons, better use of computer technology to catch major problems sooner and hiring engineers to work closer with suppliers.
