For sale on one of the nicest and RAREST T-bird convertibles around! Extensive restoration on a southern rust free
car. Body panels including the floor are original and never rusted! Bottom side of the car was left in factory
undercoated condition. The quality of the paint is outstanding!! The bumpers were rechromed and look fantastic
too!! New exhaust, brakes and front end. The engine and trans were said to be rebuilt also, the engine starts with
no hesitation. Sounds great with no strange noises. The automatic transmission shifts as it should. It goes right
down the road with no wandering, it.s a joy to drive.
To sum it up so far, the mechanics and cosmetics are in fantastic shape.
The car has power windows, power steering, power brakes, power seat AND a power top that work great! The power top
works perfectly and is very easy to stow, somewhat like a retractable hard top works. Just a flip of a button takes
around a minute and you're off!!
It's the 352 cubic inch "interceptor" engine, factory chrome dress up kit and take a look at those wide whites on
Kelsey style wire wheels!! Beautiful "Continental Kit" with a brand new whitewall inside.
Whats bad about the car?? Well, the previous owner installed a modern sound system in the car, the unit is tucked
away in the glove compartment. The speakers, however are mounted in the lower 1/4 of the door panels and kick
panels as pictured. It's not something I would have done but easily rectified. Also, the AC works and blows cold
but has a leak that needs to be addressed. That's about it. It's not so over the top restored that you'd be afraid
to drive it. It's for sure a trophy winner at any car show you take it to, it's a head turner!!

Ford owns Automotive Loyalty Awards, Audi and Subaru are king of conquests

Thu, 23 Jan 2014 18:32:00 EST

Customers are a commodity in the automotive industry, and like any other commodity, automakers trade them back and forth. Only nobody wants to give up their customers - just to keep the ones they have and try to attract others.
That's what the Polk Automotive Loyalty Awards are all about. Every year the industry research body names the automakers, brands and models that manage to keep their customers coming back for more - and attract buyers to switch from other makes. Ford usually does pretty well, but this year it rose above even its own track record.
Not only did Dearborn win the Overall Loyalty to Manufacturer award, but also the Overall Loyalty to Make. Ford also took the African American category, and the F-150 was named the top full-size half-ton pickup in customer loyalty. Ford COO Mark Fields (pictured above) accepted the awards and gave the keynote address at the awards ceremony.

2013 Shelby 1000 unleashes its 1,200 horsepower ahead of NY show reveal

Fri, 22 Mar 2013 18:00:00 EST

True story: Last fall, I had the opportunity to spend a week with Ford's new 2013 Shelby GT500 - the Blue Oval's factory Mustang with 662 horsepower and 631 pound-feet of torque. It's an amazing beast, to be sure. I'm not sure if it was Michigan's damp streets strewn with potholes and wet leaves, but at no point did I ever say to myself, "You know, Ford is on to a really good thing here, but what it really needs is about twice the power." And yet, for people in warmer climes with infrastructure in better nick - or for those whose muscle cars live their lives out on the track, there's apparently sufficient demand to warrant just such a beast.
Quick studies will recall that Shelby American launched its 1000 last year to commemorate its 50th anniversary, but it is returning to the New York Auto Show with a fresh version based on the 2013 GT500 I drove. The 2013 Shelby 1000 whips up 1,200 horsepower on pump gas thanks to beefed-up forced induction, engine internals and cooling. Wisely, it also incorporates an adjustable suspension and big brake package to make sure those ponies have the best chance being safely deployed to the ground.
What price the world's most powerful "production" muscle car? $154,995 for starters - donor GT500 not included. What, no convertible variant?

Shelby to auction 2012 GT350 No. 1 in Vegas

Thu, 19 Sep 2013 18:59:00 EST

With Shelby preparing to wind down production of its brutal GT350, a 624-horsepower Mustang that's meant to go up against the Roush Stage 3 in the world of tuned Ford ponycars, the Las Vegas-based tuner is looking to give back to one lucky customer. It'll auction off the very first GT350 ever produced, at the 2013 Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas, a three-day event that runs from September 26 through September 28.
The GT350 is a monster, with a 5.0-liter, supercharged V8 that's been tuned well past 600 horsepower in a time when Ford's own Shelby-branded GT500 barely reached 550 horsepower. The GT350 is much louder than Ford's effort, too, both visually and audibly. The wide body look isn't what we'd call conventional, but on a car that sounds and goes like this, something extreme is needed. According to Shelby American's vice president of production, Gary Davis, "Carroll was very excited about the new wide body option, so that was included on this car. It's the first 2012 GT350 serial number from our anniversary year. It is a very special car." Wilwood brakes, a massaged suspension, and some very fat, sticky tires add to the Shelby experience.
This particular GT350 will be lot number 750, and will cross the Barrett-Jackson stage on Sunday, September 28.
