1974 Ford Bronco Ranger Restoration Project on 2040-cars

I bought this Bronco from the previous owner because he was being deployed over seas and did not want to pay to store it. I had intended to restore it, but I am moving in a couple months and will not be able to take this with me. The frame was cleaned and painted along with having a 3.5" suspension lift installed about 10 years ago. The suspension lift only has leaf springs and will need shock absorbers. The body does have severe rust and will need new floor pans, fenders, tailgate, and several patch panels, or you could also just order a new fiberglass body to replace the rusted out steel one. The body is currently just placed on the frame and is not bolted down. It has 302 that does turnover freely, but should probably be rebuilt. The transmission is a 4 speed manual NP435 which is linked to the Dana 20 transfer case. The engine, transmission, and transfer case are also just set on the frame and are not attached. The tires are 36X13.50-15LT Super Swampers. It does have a brand new Borgeson Steering shaft installed. When the frame was restored it was built for off roading as you can see in the pictures it has heavy duty steering components, a differential guard, hi-lift jack, and skid plate. Please look at the pictures as they will help show the condition much better.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask. I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

I could possibly deliver within 100 miles or so for a small cost. 
The buyer is responsible for making shipping arrangements if necessary. 
This vehicle does not come with a warranty and is sold as-is. 
The vehicle is for sale locally, and I do reserve the right to end the listing early.
Please ask any and all questions you have before purchasing.
A deposit of $500 is required within 48 hours of the auction close.

Ford to rebrand SVT as 999?

Mon, 22 Sep 2014

Ford operates a number of performance divisions around the world. There's SVT in the US, Team RS in Europe and Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) in Australia. But the Blue Oval has been steadily integrating its performance operations into one unit, and here we might have our first indication of what it will be called.
A reader at Jalopnik sent in a survey in which respondents were asked to gauge the name for a new performance brand from a "major automotive manufacturer," and while the identity of that automaker was not disclosed, according to the survey, the automaker is considering the name 999 for its new go-fast unit.
As our compatriots point out, the 999 was Ford's first racecar, a rudimentary chassis with a 19-liter inline-four campaigned by Henry Ford around the turn of the 20th century. (Ford also used the number to designate a Fusion fuel-cell racer a few years back.) That could prove the tie-in Dearborn is looking for in rebranding its performance operations worldwide, replacing the letters SVT, RS and FPV globally under one name.

Meet Floyd Pullin, 102-year-old honorary president of Ford trucks [w/video]

Wed, 28 Aug 2013

When we talk about trucks we often talk about how loyal truck owners are; it's men like Floyd Pullin who provide the proof. The 102-year-old man from Confluence, Pennsylvania has only owned Ford products since the 1920s, and he's done so well by Ford Trucks that the division named him honorary president for a day, not long after he took delivery of his latest ride, a 2013 F-150 STX.
That's the 16th Ford he's owned. If he bought his first when he was 16, he'd have flipped into a new car or truck about every five years. For 86 years. Not a bad run of business for either side.
Ford Trucks made a video to wish Pullin a happy birthday, which was celebrated at his local Ford dealership and was visited by a Pennsylvania state senator. You can watch it below.

Ford's Galhotra succeeds Farley as head of Lincoln

Wed, 23 Jul 2014

Ford Motor Company is announcing a major personnel shakeup that could have a dramatic effect on the future of the Lincoln division. Kumar Galhotra (pictured above), currently vice president of engineering at Ford for all of its vehicles worldwide, is taking over as the president of the luxury brand on September 1, replacing Jim Farley. The automaker is also hiring a new head of advanced engineering.
Galhotra has a huge job ahead of him as the new boss of Lincoln worldwide, overseeing product development, marketing, sales and service. His task is to turn the luxury division into a world-class brand as quickly as possible, and he reports directly to Ford President and CEO Mark Fields.
"These changes underscore our commitment to build on the success of our One Ford plan by accelerating our pace of progress. They also make clear we are serious about Lincoln as a world-class luxury brand and that product excellence and innovation are what will deliver growth and define our entire company going forward," said Fields in the company's announcement.
