This is a parade car. I bought it that way. I did build a carson top for it. Its soft/hard and comes on and off. 

The upgrades Ive made are new dash, new panels, new paint, new tires, some engine up grades, and power window up grades and wiring.
It needs a new battery currently in my drive way, needs new carpet and upholstry. The car smokes a little when first started and if not run for a while it will smoke as well, gets better if driven a lot.
Some of the gadges work, gas, light, heater. The speedometer does not work. I dont know the exact milage on this car. 
I can email more pictures if you need. 
The car is a real show stopper but still needs restoration. That is why I am listing it at a cheap price. 
 no refunds, come by and see it or ask questions first.

The fascinating forgotten civil defense history of Mister Softee trucks

Mon, 26 Aug 2013 16:29:00 EST

Hemmings came across an interesting article from the Throwin' Wrenches blog about the intersection of ice cream, cars and civic duty in America's late 1950s. In particular, it focuses on the Mister Softee trucks, which criss-crossed neighborhoods of the eastern US serving ice cream. Looking past the ultra-durable vehicles used - heavy-duty Ford-based chassis, for what it's worth - the article delves into some deeper national-security territory.
See, Mister Softee truck owners were voluntary members of the Civil Defense, thanks to all the useful stuff (potable water, generators, freezers and fridges) that the machines carried with them for serving ice cream. Click over to Throwin' Wrenches for the full run down of how Mister Softee would have stepped in to help fight if the Cold War ever turned a little hotter.

Ford open to diesel, hybrid or electric Mustang? [w/poll]

Sun, 08 Dec 2013 18:00:00 EST

The Ford Mustang may not be the first vehicle that comes to mind when you think of environmentally-friendly forms of transportation. The arrival of the turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the new Mustang could do a lot to combat that perception, but the EcoBoost engine may just be the tip of the iceberg in that regard.
Speaking with Ford powertrain boss Bob Fascetti at the reveal of the new Mustang in Australia, GoAuto reports that the Blue Oval automaker is considering offering its latest pony car with a diesel, hybrid or even electric powertrain in the future.
"We're not looking at diesel at the moment, but given where we need to go with fuel consumption we are looking at all our options," said Fascetti. Other options could include a nine- or ten-speed automatic transmission to replace the current six-speed unit in order to help improve fuel economy and emissions for the Mustang, although figures for the current lineup have yet to be revealed.

Man turns Ford Fiesta into a one-car band

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 10:45:00 EST

The one-man band is a rather ridiculous idea, drawing up images of one person attempting to manipulate several instruments, at once, in a vain attempt at creating music. It's usually represented by silly scenes like this. Interestingly, the concept isn't much more successful when the "man" in "one-man band" is replaced with "car," as we see in this video.
It seems that someone rigged up and edited (699 times, we might add) a Ford Fiesta, a bucket, 12 PVC pipes and the natural sounds that a car makes to come up with a song. Now, we don't recognize the tune, so we've no idea if this is a cover or an original piece. And while it's hardly Beethoven, we have to admire the amount of effort the "conductor" went to in his attempt to turn a subcompact car into a musical instrument(s). Take a look (or listen) below for the entire video.
