CUSTOM BUILT ON A 1957 FORD THUNDERBIRD CHASSIS AND TITLED AS A 1957 FORD THUNDERBIRD CONVERTIBLE

I am very excited to be the new owner of this world famous-Tom Culbertson, award winning, one-of-a-kind
Jet-Age inspired custom 1957 Ford Thunderbird nicknamed "Roxanne". This fabulous showcar is all-steel construction
with all components welded in and skim coated smooth, remeniscent of the Jet-Age inspired "Big Three" prototypes
that today costs upwards $400,000.


The body is all hand formed steel of a 1957 Ford Thunderbird with many body modifications built by Tom
Culbertson of Culbertson's Customs based out of Indianapolis, Indiana. The inspiration for "Roxanne" came from Ed
"Big Daddy" Roth and George Barris designs from the 1950's and is finished in a high gloss brilliant gold metallic
paint with high profiled tailfins, custom grille and a chopped windshield.

One of the striking features is the fully custom white Naugahyde vinyl not only accented in the interior of
the cockpit but also the wheel wells and hood pad which set apart a show car from a mundane cruiser. The steering
wheel is a late '50's Plymouth Aero wheel, and also a custom shifter and of course, a retro rotary phone attached
to the center of the floorboard. The trunk is equipped with a restored 1950's Admiral television and matching
accessories accented in 14-karat gold.

Under the hood, this show stopping roadster sports a high-performance 351-CID Ford V8 engine mated with a Ford
C4 automatic transmission, both rebuilt before installation. The engine sits in a show prepared engine bay and the
car comes with a custom made tonneau cover to protect it from the elements when parked outside but does not have a
hard or soft top as this is a fair weather roadster.

NEVER failed to win, show or place in any auto show in which she was entered and has been
published in numerous magazines and newspaper articles, as this car is a global sensation that will be a unique and
exciting addition to any world-class automobile collection.

Was recently purchased by me from a New Jersey car collection and is currently enroute via enclosed
auto transport to the west coast. I can fully assist in shipping globally.

Ford dinged by OSHA for asbestos at Buffalo plant

Sat, 20 Jul 2013 10:58:00 EST

Ford has come under fire from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for violations regarding asbestos exposure in a company metal stamping plant in Buffalo, NY. OSHA has cited Ford for eight violations in total, according to an Automotive News report, and faces fines of up to $41,800. 537 workers are employed at the stamping facility.
The violations include a pipefitter at the facility being exposed to asbestos-containing material while working on a steam line, other workers exposed to the material without respiratory protection and work areas that were not designed to limited the number of workers in contact with asbestos. Further, areas in which asbestos was present were not properly restricted, and levels of asbestos in the air were not monitored.
According to an unnamed Ford spokesperson in the AN report, the company feels that the OSHA citation is erroneous saying, "We have fully cooperated with the local OSHA officials and we don't believe the citations are warranted." Ford also maintains that it will work with the authorities to resolve the issue.

Cadillac ELR, Nissan Resonance and Ford Atlas win Eyes on Design awards

Fri, 18 Jan 2013 09:29:00 EST

This year's annual Eyes on Design awards were presented at the end of press days for the Detroit Auto Show on Tuesday. Given out for the best production and concept car designs that debuted at the show, and voted on by an esteemed panel of actual car designers, this year's award for best production vehicle design went to the 2014 Cadillac ELR. The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, which was the show favorite among Autoblog editors, apparently did not impress the Eyes on Design judges enough with its all-new vent-festooned design.
The award for best concept design was actually split as a tie among the Nissan Resonance and Ford Atlas concepts. Last year's winners were the 2013 Ford Fusion and the Lexus LF-LC concept.
The Eyes on Design organization also presented a new honor this year called the Catalyst Award to Bob Lutz, former Vice Chairman of General Motors. Lutz is reported to have given a defense of design in his acceptance speech, arguing that advancements in quality across the industry as a whole have made good design a key differentiator for buyers.

2015 Ford Mustang already under recall, but just 53 units

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 12:03:00 EST

Ford has issued a small - but significant - recall for one of its spotlight cars: the 2015 Mustang.
The recall affects just 53 cars, with 50 in the United States and three in Canada. Ford said the passenger side safety belt buckle tension sensor may not have been calibrated properly by the supplier. This could lead to "misclassification" of the passenger seat occupant, and could cause the airbag to deploy improperly.
A Ford spokesperson didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. In a statement, the automaker said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries, and dealers will replace the buckle assembly at no cost to customers. The cars affected were built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan from Aug. 18 to Oct. 2.
