 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.

Winning bidder needs to pay for the car in full within 5 days and picked up in 7 days. Shipping cost is the responsibility of the buyer.

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

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.

Leno chooses his top 10 Mustangs

Sat, 14 Jun 2014 12:59:00 EST

He may be a few months late to the party, but in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang, Jay Leno has delivered a short video in which he runs down which of the Blue Oval's pony cars from the past 50 years are his favorites.
The list is pretty darn similar to our own, with some of the big names from the Mustang's half century making an appearance, while there are three or four cars here that we think you'll be pretty surprised by.
Take a look below for this short video from Jay Leno's Garage.

2015 Ford F-150 brings big aluminum to the Rust Belt [w/video]

Mon, 13 Jan 2014 09:05:00 EST

Just when you thought you'd figured the fullsize truck market out, Ford goes and throws us a massive curve ball with the 2015 F-150. The big headline news aren't tow or payload ratings, though we're sure those figures will be fully competitive if not class leading, they haven't yet been announced. Instead, the big headline news Ford is highlighting are the truck's new aluminum-intensive structure and 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine.
And with good reason - all that aluminum means that Ford was able to cut a massive 700 pounds from the truck's curb weight. That is going to cause all sorts of great things to happen to the 2015 F-150's driving dynamics, performance and fuel efficiency, not to mention its ability to haul heavy loads. For those customers worried about the strength of aluminum versus the more conventional steel, Ford is quick to point out that many military vehicles, such as the HMMWV and Bradley Fighting Vehicle, use a very similar sort of aluminum alloy in their construction.
It's also worth mentioning that the backbone, a fully boxed ladder frame, is hewn from high-strength steel. Ford says "2015 Ford F-150 is the strongest and most durable F-150 ever," for what it's worth, claiming that "torture tested" in labs and in the real world for more than 10 million miles. What's more, the truck, in disguised form, completed all 883 miles of the Baja 1000.
