Beautiful original 1977 F100 Custom Explorer with like new orig interior you have to see to believe!!! Also undercarriage is like off the lot in 1977 with only very end of dual exhaust pipes showing rust through due to chrome exhaust tips being on it when I got it that held moisture between them and pipes causing some rust through.Exterior has some issues with pinstriping on hood that needs redoing and some parking lot scratches here and there,but zero rust,rot,or sheet metal repair anywhere...this truck is solid as a rock.There is also a dent above rear passenger side tail-light that is the exteriors worst issue keeping it from receiving trophies at car shows.Truck has factory a/c that needs recharging and new belt,but did blow air before I took belt off so all power would transfer to motor and not needlessly turn a/c pulley.Truck also features orig AM/FM stereo,orig FORD hubcaps,and loud air horns mounted under hood run by compressor and air tank along with aux. air hose to inflate other things as needed(orig horn still operates as well). I also recently put on a new carb that still needs tuning,but starts,idles,and runs good,but under power does hesitate some at slow speed,but does come out of it as it increases in speed.Honestly,I'm horrible at adjusting carbs as well as setting timing so someone that can do that or send to a garage to do it right will have a great running truck!!! Currently the truck is running off a 22 gallon fuel cell mounted in bed of truck due to both orig gas tanks needing a thorough draining and cleaning or possible replacement due to possible rusting from inside out or just crappy old gas varnishing inside tanks(that's what messed up my orig carb). Also,drivers side inner door panel is a bit loose on bottom due to a few clips falling out so I'll try and get that fixed before new owner takes delivery of it,but new clips are easily obtained as well as most new parts for these old Fords through LMC Ford Parts. 
Truck is advertised locally so if it's sold or traded locally the ad will be taken down promptly! If truck is won by auction on here,winner is solely responsible for all shipping charges or can be picked up locally.I can hold truck as long as needed as long as it's paid for in full and you explain situation before final winning bid!!

Ford board OK with Mulally stepping down earlier

Fri, 06 Sep 2013

Ford's board is open to CEO Alan Mulally stepping down before his planned departure in 2014, inside sources are telling Reuters. Ford's plan of succession, aside from who would be his actual successor, has been something approaching common knowledge - the 68-year-old former Boeing exec had plans to stay through 2014. This was recently confirmed by Mulally himself on Bloomberg Television and in Automotive News.
Motivation for the about-face comes from what Reuters calls a "growing confidence" in the current crop of Ford execs, led by Mark Fields. Fields, Ford's current chief operating officer, has been tipped as Mulally's ultimate successor, although he's far from the only person with eyes on Ford's top job. Normally, Ford's board saying they're open to an executive, that's done very well for the company, stepping down early would be nearly unremarkable. It's the timing of this announcement, though, that makes this a big piece of news.
Recently, Mulally has been the subject of rumors that he's interested in taking the CEO position at tech giant Microsoft. The Redmond, Washington-based company's CEO, Steve Ballmer, told the media in August that he'd be retiring in a year's time. The fires were stoked when tech website AllThingsD speculated that Mulally would take the top spot, despite denials from the man himself. Could Ford's current boss become the new top dog at Microsoft? Will Mark Fields replace him? Could recently departed Renault exec Carlos Tavares land at Ford in some capacity? Let us know what you think below in Comments.

Weekly Recap: Auto execs face life in prison for recall delays under proposed legislation

Sat, 09 Aug 2014



The stiff punishments are part of broader transportation legislation, but clearly McCaskill has automakers in her sights.
Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill threw down the gauntlet this week, proposing a bill that could send auto executives to prison for life if they were found to have delayed a recall. She also wants to eliminate the limit for fines for auto safety violations, which are currently capped at $35 million.

Ford invests $682 million in Edge-producing Canadian facility

Sun, 22 Sep 2013

Ford announced that it's investing $682 million in its Oakville assembly plant in Ontario, Canada, to make it a global manufacturing plant, which the automaker also says secures 2,800 jobs there. Including this injection of cash, Ford has invested over $2 billion in Canada in the last decade, starting with nearly $1 billion for Oakville in 2004, and over $570 million for its Essex Engine Plant in 2010.
The move to make Oakville a global manufacturer of Ford vehicles means, "If consumers suddenly shift their buying habits, we can seamlessly change our production mix without having to idle a plant," says Joe Hinrichs, Ford's president of the Americas.
Ford says that the latest investment will help it meet North American demand for the Oakville-produced Edge crossover, which is on track this year to beat 2007's US sales record of 130,000 Edges. The Ford Flex and Lincoln MKX and MKT are also manufactured at the plant.
