Here is one eye popping 1971 Torino GT convertible that stops people in their tracks. Only 1613 GT convertibles were made in 71 which makes them very rare and collectible today. This beauty is 1 of only 31 made with this paint and trim combination of bright red and Vermillion bucket seat interior. It's probably the only original one left on the planet. If you want a GT convertible this incredible Arizona beauty is the one you want. A Deluxe Marti Report documents the build, which is included.

The car is in excellent condition having been in Arizona from 1971 until 2000. It was restored in the midwest between 2002 and 2010 and then brought back home to Scottsdale soon after that. The paint work is stunning having been cut and buffed to a glass like finish. There are zero issues with the paint. All the jambs and inside the trunk look original and are nice. No signs of filler are present, Undercarraige looks original and nice and solid. .All the trim and chrome is excellent along with all the rubber and crystal clear glass and a perfect white power top with glass window. The laser stripes are perfect also. All the gaps are right on and doors, hood and trunk shut perfect. Five Magnum 5oo's with excellent Firestone rubber. The spare has never been on the ground. Under hood and trunk are fully detailed and complete.

Motor is the original rebuilt 351 Cleveland 2bbl with a Select Shift C4 automatic transmission. Motor and trans run and shift nicely as expected. Included is a thick folder documenting all the replacement parts and service performed over the years. Basically everything mechanical has been addressed over time and parts replaced as needed. This is a power steering, power disc brake car with cold air conditioning and tinted glass. Everything works except the radio and the high blower fan position. Even the headlight warning buzzer works,

The interior has been preserved beautifully. There is only a minor wear spot on the driver's seat lower bolster that is not even an issue and can be touched up easily. Door and quarter panels are outstanding along with the dash and console and shifter. . The original factory boot is nice also. Carpet and floor mats are perfect. All window regulators and door locks work flawlessly. This orange interior shown outside in the sun is a knockout.

Social media star Scott Monty leaves Ford

Thu, 22 May 2014 18:33:00 EST

It seems weird to think that an automaker could have a social media star, but Ford does. Or at least it did. Scott Monty, its Global Digital Communications Manager, led the company's team for almost six years and forged a reputation as being one of the most talented people in corporate social media. But the guru recently announced that he would be leaving the automaker for an undisclosed job elsewhere.
"I just decided the time was right. I am going to take a little time with my family, and I am going to start on a new adventure pretty soon," said Monty in an interview with AdWeek. He also explained a little about his theory of how companies should use social media. In his opinion, it should be a chance to go beyond standard marketing and build a relationship with people. Businesses need to have a broad focus for its online message, and using just one service isn't enough to be successful.
Under his guidance, Ford expanded its Facebook presence significantly. According to AdWeek, it launched the 2010 Explorer on the popular site. Also, when the company wanted to investigate selling electric models, it initially gauged the public's reaction on Facebook and then advertised them there first. Monty has been a major supporter of Twitter as well to broaden the company's communication with the public.

First retail 2015 Ford Mustang headed to Barrett-Jackson

Fri, 20 Dec 2013 11:15:00 EST

Want to be the very first person to own a 2015 Ford Mustang GT? Here's what you'll need to do: be in Scottsdale, AZ on January 18 for the Barrett-Jackson auction and bring a very big checkbook. Having a passion for charity isn't a bad idea either.
Yes, the first 2015 Mustang to be sold to the public will be crossing the block at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, with proceeds from the auction going to JDRF, the charity formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
"Ford Mustangs have always been among the most popular collector cars at Barrett-Jackson Collector Car events," said the president of Barrett-Jackson, Steve Davis. "While every collector wishes they had snapped up the first Mustang sold in 1964, this is an opportunity to realize that dream in a different way."

Ford won't be releasing GT500 lap times for the 'Ring, or any other car

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 11:29:00 EST

Trucks have towing capacity, EVs have driving range and performance cars have Nürburgring lap times. What do all three have in common? They should all be taken with a grain of salt. Currently, there is no sanctioned way to record lap times or verify production-spec cars - a lesson we recently learned with the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo - and until there is a way to do so (and there probably never will be), we'll never officially know the actual time it took for Ford to lap the 'Ring with its ultra-powerful Shelby GT500.
After posting a Ford-made video of a 2013 GT500 running around the 'Ring, the guys over at SVTPerformance.com (an enthusiasts forum not affiliated with Ford or SVT) wanted more answers. They got in touch with Ford's Global Performance Vehicle Chief Engineer Jamal Hameedi, who said until there is a way to verify the times and inspect the cars, Ford will not get involved with lap-time wars. In the email, Hameedi pointed out that the 'Ring is a useful tool in that it allows a wide spectrum of track conditions, but until there is a governed way to record times, there is no way to accurately compare cars head-to-head.
And as much as some may not like it, Hameedi speaks the truth. It really isn't possible to compare times from one car to another, unless those cars were lapping the same track at the same time with the same driver. Not that any of this means there won't be continuous wars by fans and manufacturers alike... in other words, feel free to voice your opinions in the Comments below.
