Silver City, New Mexico, United States

Up for grabs is  a 1974 Ford F-100 Custom Long Box. I bought this truck from the original owners wife who's husband bought it brand new . It had been sitting for some time before I purchased it last licensed in 2012. Truck has original paint  (Village  green & Wimbledon white) and has never been wrecked. Truck was equipped with 3 spd cruise o matic  and 390 v8 has power steering and power brakes has a/c but has been removed have original compressor  and will come with truck . Truck has a new 4 barrel elelbrock  carb and truck runs ok it's not perfect. It had been sitting like I said for two years only being started every few weeks  had old gas I've since ran a tank of new gas through the front tank . I have not used the rear tank at all. Motor looks to be stock except the carb and headers. I have replaced the collector gaskets and then noticed a leak on the drivers side header gasket  so it does have a leak on the drivers side that will need attention. Truck does leak a little oil  but have not noticed it burning any oil. Odometer shows 47k I would guess 147k the wife of owner who passed away said she thought 147k .  The interior of truck looks great has some cracks on dash but seat is like mint condition had seat cover on truck since new. Every thing works except the blinkers you have to hold the lever to get them to operate. Oil pressure gauge does not work  and left turn signal light on dash is out. Truck doesn't overheat and does drive ok it's old so don't expect a new truck. Tires only have 4k miles on them but they were purchased in 2000 according to receipt  they are dry rotted and I wouldn't trust them to drive across the country.  Truck has been in NM it's entire life so the sun has rotted all rubber parts  on truck. For some reason the owner liked spray paint  and painted the engine black  and grill guard silver  also had even sprayed the mag wheels  and parts of engine bay silver..  The truck has rust on hood and spots on truck you see that are covered in primer ( see pictures ) . Windshield is cracked and all other glass  is somewhat cloudy and scratched. Owner also did a half ass job with bed liner material in truck bed . Front bumper is bent in a little on passenger side and tailgate latch is not working you can open tailgate by pulling rod with pliers .  Truck will come with original  A/C compressor , exhaust manifolds , warranty card and owners manual and purchase agreement .

This is a cool vintage truck that has a lot of potential have a clear NM title in my name ready to transfer . If you have zero feedback please contact me before bidding . Truck is at No reserve If you have any questions or need additional pictures please call me at 575-534-9089. Thanks.

Ford dinged by OSHA for asbestos at Buffalo plant

Sat, 20 Jul 2013

Ford has come under fire from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for violations regarding asbestos exposure in a company metal stamping plant in Buffalo, NY. OSHA has cited Ford for eight violations in total, according to an Automotive News report, and faces fines of up to $41,800. 537 workers are employed at the stamping facility.
The violations include a pipefitter at the facility being exposed to asbestos-containing material while working on a steam line, other workers exposed to the material without respiratory protection and work areas that were not designed to limited the number of workers in contact with asbestos. Further, areas in which asbestos was present were not properly restricted, and levels of asbestos in the air were not monitored.
According to an unnamed Ford spokesperson in the AN report, the company feels that the OSHA citation is erroneous saying, "We have fully cooperated with the local OSHA officials and we don't believe the citations are warranted." Ford also maintains that it will work with the authorities to resolve the issue.

Ford EcoBoost smashes records at Daytona

Thu, 10 Oct 2013

Some mighty machines have lapped the banks of the Daytona International Speedway over the years: thunderous V8-powered stock cars, Le Mans-conquering Group C prototypes, open-wheel Champ Cars, knee-dragging superbikes... heck, the infield lake has even hosted powerboat racing. But this - this is the fastest car ever to lap the legendary raceway.
What you're looking at is the new Daytona Prototype being prepared by Riley Technologies for the new United SportsCar Championship. The car, released just last week, is powered by a new 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 from Ford's EcoBoost family, and just obliterated the top speed at the track with a blistering 222.971 miles per hour through the traps.
That's enough to annihilate the previous record that was set, also under Ford power, by Bill Elliott while placing his Thunderbird on pole for the 1987 Daytona 500 that he would go on to win. His 210.364 mph record had stood for 26 years until now.

Ford Transit Skyliner Concept does discreet luxury in NYC

Thu, 17 Apr 2014

There's something to be said for luxed-out vans. They're cool, and as a means of getting chauffeured about, they're extremely comfortable and far more low key than your typical executive luxury sedan. For the 2014 New York Auto Show, Galpin Auto Sports has shown the potential of the new-for-the-US Ford Transit as an ultra-luxurious people hauler.
The Transit Skyliner Concept, which we previewed last week, sports four finely crafted captain's buckets that can be moved into different formations based on need. Want to watch a movie? The seats can be swung around to face a 52-inch screen. Riding along with some business associates? A table can be popped up. There's even a configuration for tailgating.
The materials are, unsurprisingly, pretty plush. The leather seats and wood floors (yes, wood floors in a van) look great, while the trunk and its customized luggage are a nice touch, as well.
