Ford Other Custom on 2040-cars
Grand Prairie, Texas, United States
This is an amazingly beautiful all-steel car showing no use. This car is 99% perfect. Building a car this nice would cost $100,000 to $150,000. This car is indoor show quality in every way.It was first built 60’s style with whitewalls, white top, and white interior by the original/owner and builder Randy G. of WV. He possesses a great deal of knowledge about this car. See SUMMARY below for links to the magazine article and pics of the car’s original 60’s style build. It was redone in approximately 2013 by Ender’s Hot Garage of Montgomery, TX for Erica Enders, the 2014 NHRA Pro Stock World Champion. Erica Enders and her sister Courtney were chronicled in the 2003 Disney movie “Right On Track”. This movie was the fact-based drama of the Enders sisters’ battle to compete and win in the male-dominated sport of NHRA racing with the inspiration of their father, Gregg Enders. I purchased this car from Gregg Enders. I have the clear title in my name. It shows Gregg Enders as the previous owner. I also have a copy of the previous title with Gregg Enders as the owner. Of course, I had to relinquish the title with Gregg Enders as owner when I titled the car in my name. Upon redoing the interior Enders Hot Rod Garage had the front panel inside the trunk stitched with the Erica Enders logo of 2 opposing letter “E”s.The all-steel body was built by Kenny's Rod & Kustom of Newton Falls, Ohio and is based on a Hot Rods & Horsepower body per the original owner/builder. Hot Rods & Horsepower was affiliated with and did work for Dearborn Deuce. I am certain the body is all steel because I have gone over entire body with a magnet. This car also has a 40 Ford-style dash, Duvall windshield, stainless grille, shaved door handles, hidden door hinges, removable soft top in tan Hartz cloth. The paint color is Chrysler Electric Blue. It is a bright-blue metallic showing only minor scratches from installing/removing the top and misaligned door hinges. I have re-aligned both doors. Scratches are only in six areas: top rear corner of both doors, near tabs where top mounts, and in front of the doors just above the frame (probably caused by letting the doors just swing open). If you are careful and have help, there is no reason to scratch the car installing or removing the top. Simple and clean pinstriping in tan and light blue at belt line and on trunk lid. CHASSIS: Fatman chassis purchased and assembled by the original owner/builder along with Kenny’s Rod & Kustom. Pete & Jakes all-chrome front suspension and shocks with tubular axle and polished billet Wilwood disc brakes. Rear end housing is a fully polished STAINLESS STEEL Ford 9” with an aluminum 3rd member and 3.56 gears. The rear end is located by Polished stainless 2-link bars with a stainless panhard bar. It is suspended by aluminum coil-over shocks and Aerospace billet discs. Brakes and steering are manual but function great in a car this light. 15” real Halibrands fully polished on both sides with knock off covers. BF Goodrich 285/70’s on the rear and 195/65’s on the front. The entire chassis and floorpan have been painted the same bright blue as the body. It is as clean and nice as you would expect of any show-winning ride. ENGINE/TRANS: 468 BB Chevy with polished Edelbrock Perfomer RPM heads. Dual polished Edelbrock carbs on a coated Edelbrock intake. Mild hydraulic cam. Cam specs unknown but it is not too wild and not too mild. It has the just-right mean and tough idle but purrs nicely at any speed. Jet-Hot coated and baffled headers are loud but not too loud to enjoy your ride. Fully automatic TH350 with a mild performance torque converter. Just put it in drive and enjoy the ride.INTERIOR: High-grade leather-look vinyl with high-end carpet in cockpit and trunk. Metal floor mats were fabricated in aluminum to improve fit and finish. They are covered in the same high-end carpet as the floor pan. Radio is mounted under the seat. Engraved aluminum steering wheel mounted on a polished Ididit column. Steering wheel has a quick-release mount to remove the steering wheel. This makes entry and exit easier for drivers who eat as good as I do. Trunk panels are easily removable to access battery and fuse block. ITEMS NEEDED: Vega steering is a little loose. It needs to be adjusted. Radio antenna does not seem to be hooked up but it is there hidden behind the seat. Speedometer does not work.

While monthly sales figures might be an easy way of tracking the progression of the auto industry and individual automakers, looking at market share might be more indicative of how each company is actually standing up against its competitors. For the Detroit Three automakers, they have collectively lost almost 30 percent of the market over the last 20 years, but now, for the first time since 1993, Ford, General Motors and Chrysler have each posted market share gains at the same time.
According to Automotive News, Ford's share increased the most by 0.7 percent, GM was up 0.5 percent and Chrysler rose marginally by 0.2 percent, giving the Detroit automakers a total market share of 45.6 percent. As for the Japan's Big Three, the article reports that Toyota is up by 0.7 percent, Nissan is down the same amount and Honda has seen "little change."
Automakers face competing interests when it comes to developing a new generation of vehicle. On the one hand, companies want to build their cars to be safer and better handling, with more equipment and maybe even larger dimensions over the model it's replacing. On the other hand, they strive to keep weight down to the benefit of both performance and fuel consumption. Usually something has to give, and in the case of the new 2015 Ford Mustang, those efforts may have resulted in a weight penalty of two or three hundred pounds.
This according to Blue Oval modifier Steeda Autosports, which states that "the 2015 Mustang ended up gaining 200-300 pounds in this remake". Despite the Mustang not being on the market yet, it would appear the leading Ford aftermarketer has been given early access to the 2015 model to help jumpstart its tuning efforts (a rather common development among trusted tuners). If Steeda's assertion is accurate, that would make the challenge of getting the new pony car up to speed for both Ford and aftermarket customizers like Steeda that much greater.
We're waiting for official word from Ford on the veracity of Steeda's claim, but if true, it's bound to be a bit of disappointing news for legions of Blue Oval performance enthusiasts. Watch this space for more.
Ford, along with KISS bassist Gene Simmons and his wife, Shannon Tweed, used SEMA as a backdrop to pull the covers off Snakebit, a 1956 Ford F-100 pickup truck that's been updated with Shelby Mustang-derived styling bits and a 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine. All 550 horsepower are funneled through a six-speed manual gearbox to the rear wheels.
Underneath the custom bodywork sits a chassis that's been stretched five inches and a bed widened and bedecked with billet machined pieces that are supposed to look like wood. The 20-inch rear and 18-inch front wheels ape those of past Shelby Mustang models. The interior is swathed in two-tone leather with a bench seat designed to look - try to act surprised - like a Shelby Mustang.
Like what you see? Bidding for the truck will take place in 2014 at an unspecified Barrett-Jackson event (we'd assume Scottsdale). Proceeds will be used to help build a children's hospital in Saskatoon, in the province of Saskatchewan, where Ms. Tweed grew up. See the high-res gallery above and the press release down below for more.
