Car History
Early in 2004 a Quality Assurance Engineer from North American Aircraft Corporation decided to do a full body-off
restoration on his 1957 Thunderbird.
He proceeded to completely disassemble the vehicle including; removing the engine, transmission, undercarriage
components suspension / steering components and separated the body from the chassis.
The chassis and all undercarriage components were powder coated gloss black. This powder coating included: frame,
suspension components, steering components, brake components and rear axel housing.
After frame was coated, new brakes, brake lines, gas tank and fuel lines were added. The engine and transmission
were professionally rebuilt and assembled into the chassis. The rolling chassis was topped off with four new
chrome Kelsey Hayes type 14 inch spoked rims and new Cooker radial whitewall tires.
The body was sent out for a rotisserie Starmist Blue paint job. After painting, body and chassis were mated at his
workshop. It was later sent out to Prestige Thunderbird, Santa Fe Springs, CA, for a complete new interior, seat
upholstery, dashboard, all panels and a new white top, headliner, glass and associated hardware.
Once back in his garage he proceeded to finish the rest of the restoration process. Unfortunately, The Engineer
fell ill in 2009 and passed away early 2010 without completing his project. The car was covered and in his garage,
where it remained for the next nine years.
Needless to say when I purchased the car in March of 2017, it was not running and many items had frozen over time.
The car had been run at some point during the restoration, as the odometer indicated five miles had been put on the
car. Odometer currently at 110 miles.

Fitting Retirement: Grand Marquis last Mercury off the line

Wed, 05 Jan 2011 09:00:00 EST

The signs have come down and retail production ended back in October of 2010. Now, the very last Mercury model has rolled off the assembly line. This last Mercury somewhat fittingly takes the form of a Grand Marquis reporting for fleet duty. It was built at the St. Thomas plant in Ontario, Canada, which is the same facility that continues to produce the Ford Crown Victoria and Lincoln Town Car for fleet and livery duty.
St. Thomas' days are numbered, however, as the factory is slated to close on August 31. When it goes, the Panther platform is likely to follow. So long, and thanks for all the fish memories.

Ford EcoSport Storm concept swallows a Raptor in Sao Paulo

Sun, 02 Nov 2014 14:02:00 EST

Ford rolled into the Sao Paulo Motor Show with some pretty cool crossovers in tow, the awesomest of all being the EcoSport Storm concept shown above, which draws its inspiration directly from the F-150 SVT Raptor. It packs a lower grille clearly derived from the now-famous muscle truck, as well as a Blue Storm paint job, black and silver trim, special graphics, lower body cladding and 215/75 R15 off-road tires. Don't go holding your breath for a supercharged V8, though; made locally in Brazil, India and Thailand, the tiny EcoSport is typically powered by a three- or four-cylinder engine.
The Storm isn't the only specially prepared Ecosport on show, however, joined as it is by another pair called Beauty and the Beast. Beauty is decked out in matte copper with a black roof, LED fog lamps, 18-inch wheels with low-profile tires and an interior complete with four individual bucket seats, leather upholstery and a full multimedia suite. The Beast, meanwhile, takes a sportier approach with a white pearl finish, blue and orange trim and three-bar grille. It also wears 18-inch wheels and LED fog lamps, but its interior swaps out its rear seats for a bike rack.
Joining the EcoSport show cars was an Edge crossover equipped with all the latest technologies and done up in bright red with three-bar grille, bulging hood, and an interior featuring 10-inch touchscreens and leather upholstery. Feel free to read more in the press release below.

Former Ford president, Jaguar chairman Nick Scheele dead at 70

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 17:01:00 EST

We have the privilege here at Autoblog of reporting a lot of good news, but it is our duty as well to report the bad news and sad news as well. And this is one of those occasions as the automotive industry mourns the passing of one of its leaders.
Nick Scheele was born in the UK in 1944 and joined the Ford Motor Company upon graduating from the University of Durham in 1966, staying within the Blue Oval's portfolio for the entirety of his career. After moving to North America in 1978, he rose through the ranks to become president of Ford's Mexican operations in 1988. After acquiring Jaguar, Ford appointed Scheele as its chairman.
Scheele subsequently acted as chairman of all of Ford's European operations, making difficult decisions to take the division out of the red and into the black. He briefly headed up Ford's North American division before he was appointed in 2001 as president and chief operating officer of the global automaker, working under CEO Bill Ford following the departure of Jacques Nasser departure and retaining the role until his retirement in 2005.
