You are bidding on a 1972 Ford Gran Torino Sport. This has been a daily driver since I bought it in 2005 it has a 351cc Cleveland motor 2 barrel stock from everything I know. I have never had the motor opened up. The motor and tranny are in good shape no leaks and does not smoke. Things I have done over the years replaced the carburetor, 4 new tires they now have about 20000 miles on them, replaced the ball joints and some of the bushing, recently replaced the back shocks, front shocks replaced about three years ago, we tinted the windows about 6 month ago, master cylinder was replaced 5 months age, starter replaced about a year ago, changed the radio to an FM CD player, added some 6X9 speakers, quarter window seals, front and rear emblems about 5 years ago and a bench seat cover.
Things that need attention she has some rust in the normal spots re-quarter panels, under the doors, trunk lid, under the vinyl top, a few spots on the hood, interior needs to be replaced, passenger front fender has a small dent, paint is starting to fade, power steering has a leak, gas gauge does not work along with the clock and tires are ok for now. If I can think of anything else I'll add it. The mileage posted is what the odometer reads I have NO IDEA of its accuracy.
I bought this car because it could be driven and worked on it wasn't someone else's jigsaw puzzle nor was it a trailer queen. She is affordable and can be enjoyed my son and I have done just that, she is a little better off than we found her.
I am selling this car in as is condition with warranty at all. All sales are final so PLEASE ask all the questions before you bid I will try to get you the info or picture if you need them asap. Bid to win if the price gets close to the reserve I may remove the reserve.
The car is in south Florida but was in TN for about five years.

I hope I covered it all if not just ask. Thank you for your time and happy bidding

Jay Leno has to be under significant pressure knowing the appetite his fans have for a new Jay Leno's Garage video every week. This time, Jay takes a break from his usual format (something he's been doing with some frequency as of late) and goes back to his roots as a talk show host. There's no classic in the garage his episode with an interesting story to tell and a sumptuous exhaust note. Instead, the focus is purely on interviewing 23-year-old NASCAR racer Joey Logano about what it's like to be a racecar driver in his Ford Fusion.

Logano started racing at the tender age of six and has risen up the circle-track ranks to the big show of the NASCAR Sprint Cup. The two of them talk about what it's like to compete in the sport today compared to yesteryear, and Logano shares some racing anecdotes. Of course, they also get into what it's like to be on the racetrack controlling a car with about 850 horsepower, a four-speed manual transmission and brakes without any power boost. Scroll down to watch the video.
A few years back, Volkswagen made some waves when it announced the Golf GTD - a diesel-powered car that, aside from its ultra-efficient, ultra-torquey engine, was identical to the gas-powered GTI. That meant cosseting sport seats, larger wheels, sportier suspension, larger brakes and a body kit that made the GTD indistinguishable from the GTI, except for the three little letters on the back and in the grille.

Now, Ford is looking to replicate VW's success, with a diesel version of the Focus ST. According to Motor Trend, the diesel-powered ST will use a 2.0-liter, 182-horsepower four-cylinder. With an unspecified amount of torque on offer (we'd guess around 280 pound-feet), the diesel hot hatch should hit 62 miles per hour in about eight seconds.
The report, which originally comes from Auto Express, claims the ST Diesel was confirmed by Ford Chief Marketing Officer Mark Fields during this week's Geneva Motor Show. Not surprisingly, it doesn't appear there are any plans to bring a diesel-powered Focus of any kind to the US, let alone one that uses the suspension, steering and other items from the ST. Of course, if there's an official confirmation from Ford, we'll be sure to report on it.
Up until now, it's been some years since I managed to get behind the wheel of the hot Mustangs tuned by the folks at Roush Performance. My memories of those vehicles are fond, as the Roush up-fits usually make for better-driving examples of the iconic Ford pony, with better-tuned suspensions, excellent short-shift kits and, of course, huge additions of power. The wake-your-neighbors aural characteristics of these cars have been nothing short of outstanding, too.
But in the years since my last experience with the Roush formula, Ford's own development team has churned out some pretty potent 'Stangs. We currently live in a world where the Blue Oval will sell you a Mustang with 662 horsepower from the factory, and the recently departed Boss 302 remains one of the best Mustangs - and best sports coupes - the Autoblog crew has ever driven.
So with great-driving and hugely powerful Mustangs coming straight off the line at Ford's Flat Rock Assembly Plant, does the Roush package still offer that extra special something to make it stand out? I spent a week with a Stage 3 coupe to find out.
