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

Has the auto industry hit peak hybrid?

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 09:30:00 EST

Hybrids are known for their great fuel economy and low emissions, but it looks like given current market conditions, only about three percent of new car consumers are willing to pay the premium for them. A new study from IHS/Polk finds that the hybrid market share among overall US auto sales are falling, despite more models with the technology on sale than ever before.
The study examined new car registrations in March from 2009 through 2014. In that time, the auto industry grew from 24 to 47 hybrid models available to consumers, but market share for the powertrain remained almost stagnant in that time. As of 2009, hybrids held 2.4 percent of the market; it fell slightly to 2.3 percent in 2010 and grew to 3.3 percent in 2013. However, 2014 showed a drop back to 3 percent. Overall hybrid sales have been growing since 2010, but they just aren't keeping up with the total auto market.
According to IHS/Polk, this isn't what you would expect to see. Usually, each new model in the market brings along with it a boost in sales. The growth in hybrid models 2009 to 2014 should have shown a larger increase in share for the segment.

Mulally wanted to kill Lincoln as late as last year, Fields vows to turn it around

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 17:29:00 EST

Lincoln fans might want to give incoming Ford CEO Mark Fields a pat on the back for having a hand in saving the brand from the chopping block last year. He's among the people spearheading the rejuvenation of the division away from its stodgy image to appeal to younger customers.
According to two unnamed sources speaking to Bloomberg, CEO Alan Mulally was ready to kill Lincoln last year. Following the slow production ramp-up of the MKZ combined a with a costly ad campaign, Mulally was frustrated and openly suggested dropping the brand. However, Fields and Jim Farley, Ford's marketing boss, convinced the CEO that the brand was worth saving. They also created a plan to prevent similar problems for new models in the future.
It seems that one part of the strategy may involve waiting until new models are at dealers before starting a big ad campaign for them. Lincoln global director, Matt VanDyke, recently told Autoblog that the division is holding off on a full marketing push behind the new MKC crossover to prevent the supply problems that plagued the MKZ last year. Its big offensive begins in the fall when the CUVs are at all of the dealers and consumers are at home watching more TV. VanDyke also told Bloomberg that Fields, Farley and Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of the Americas, have more direct oversight over new product launches now.

2015 Ford Mustang GT Line-Lock Burnout

In this brief Short Cut, Autoblog's Steven Ewing demonstrates Line-Lock on the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. Accessed through an on-screen performance menu, the feature temporarily locks the front brakes to help you heat up the rear tires for better traction, as you would for drag racing. The result? A 15-second smokescreen.
