I have owned this truck several years and due to financial reasons just pulled it out of the barn last week and need to sell it. In 2011 I cleaned the fuel tank and installed a disc brake conversion to the steer axle and had a machine shop make new kingpins and I installed them. The truck ran and drove and I put it back in the barn where it sat until last week. I got it out, put in fresh gas and a battery and it took off as usual. The 223 straight six does not smoke but has blow by. The three speed column shift and clutch work exactly as they should and are very smooth and quiet. Everything is original except the kingpins and brakes but I have the original drum brakes that go with the truck. It is a true survivor especially for the midwest. It has been inside the last 40 years. The guy before me started a body restoration which he never completed. The interior and all glass is prisitine. Original floor mats. All lights are there but may not be working. It is truly a complete, straight original truck ready for restoration. Disc brakes are not plumbed in so truck is not roadworthy but the truck lot drives. Remember, its a little stiff and crusty from storage all those years. By VIN this truck was built in Chicago in April, 1961 and is within the first 500 unibodies ever made. Unibody was a failure for Ford so they went back to the two-piece cab-bed models a few years later. This is an extraodinary truck as it has never been in a crash or overloaded and entirely intact. The tailgate even works great. Call with questions. 765-437-39five8. I have a clear indiana title and will help you or your shipper load. Low reserve. I need to sell. Thanks for your interest.

This weekend will see the world's collector car crowds descend on Las Vegas, NV for one of the biggest shows on Barrett-Jackson's popular auction circuit. There are hundreds of vehicles up for bidding, ranging from a brand-new Lamborghini Aventador to a spattering of Art Deco classics and a huge swath of classic muscle cars.
While it's virtually impossible to assemble an inarguable list of the best cars coming during the three-day, 700-plus vehicle auction, we've sifted through the listings for this year's show - it was a tough assignment, we promise - and assembled a list of what we think will be some of the most interesting lots. We'll admit, it's a bit heavy on American iron, but if you browse BJ's listings, you'll come to a similar conclusion. Still, scroll down for our list of what we think will be the most interesting vehicles at the upcoming auction.
At present, over 90 percent of all new vehicles sold in the United States today are equipped with event data recorders, more commonly known as black boxes. If the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gets its way, that already high figure will swell to a full 100 percent in short order.
Such automotive black boxes have been in existence since the 1990s, and all current Ford, General Motors, Mazda and Toyota vehicles are so equipped. NHTSA has been attempting to make these data recorders mandatory for automakers, and according to The Detroit News, the White House Office of Management Budget has just finished reviewing the proposal, clearing the way. Now NHTSA is expected to draft new legislation to make the boxes a requirement.
One problem with current black boxes is that there's no set of standards for automakers to follow when creating what bits of data are recorded, and for how long or in what format it is stored. In other words, one automaker's box is probably not compatible with its competitors.
While most of us believe that small, fuel efficient cars are the key to global expansion for US automakers, Jim Farley, Ford's vice president of Global Marketing, thinks otherwise. Last week, we attended an exclusive sneak preview of the Ford Edge Concept in advance of the Los Angeles Auto Show, and Farley told us that it's actually utility vehicles that will help the Blue Oval gain market share overseas. "There is no other segment in our industry that is growing like utilities," he said. "We expect over the next five years this full family of [utility] vehicles to really drive our growth as a company."
And Farley has the numbers to back it up, too. Ford projects overall automotive sales to grow 23 percent from 2012 to 2017, but the company's utility vehicles are expected to boom by an impressive 41 percent during that same period. Much of that growth will be in China, where Ford estimates its utility sales will explode. "The biggest opportunity for us globally for utilities is in China," Farley said. "China utility growth is expected to more than double from where it is today to 2017, which isn't that far away." Most astounding is that Ford projects its own utility sales in China will eventually increase by more than 2,000 percent when smaller crossovers, such as the EcoSport and Kuga (sold as the Escape in North America), and the Edge and Explorer, are factored in.
Ford's VP also expects utilities to lead the way in the struggling European market. "With all the difficulties of the European market, there is one segment that has actually expanded in volume over the last several years even though the market is way down, and that's utilities," Farley told us. Ford estimates that their utility sales will grow 65 percent in Europe from 2012-2017. "The utility segment is projected to grow we think about thirty percent between now and 2017 in Europe, and we think we are going to grow twice that rate as a brand," Farley continued.
