Condition: UsedA vehicle is considered used if it has been registered and issued a title. Used vehicles have had at least one previous owner. The condition of the exterior, interior and engine can vary depending on the vehicle's history. See the seller's listing for full details and description of any imperfections.Seller Notes:"I would describe this truck as in good running condition. The only parts that are not original is it has a new carburetor with a oil bath air cleaner and a different speedometer cluster but it looks correct to the period. The new black paint on the truck is like a rubberized black. Tires are new. The seat looks like it came out of the 70s but its comfortable and we seem to like it when we are riding around. All the locks work with the keys including the glove box and all the glass is original. The back glass has a crack but has not seemed to be an issue. The motor probably has some blow-by because it leaks some oil out of the crankcase ventilator, but it has strong oil pressure, plenty of power and runs great. The fuel gauge does not work, and the speedometer worked until last week and started making noises so I unscrewed the cable. Could be something simple, not sure. The blower defrost and wipers work. It has a vintage horn that is super loud."

 I have a very rare and desirable 1956 Ford F250 in good running, condition.  These F-Series Trucks are very popular because you can still buy parts for them.  This truck has the original 272 Y-Block V-8 Engine mated with the original 4 Speed Transmission and is a 12 volt system. I have converted over to a alternator but I have the original generator in working condition, I have the original coil, solenoid, and other parts. The truck has new tires all the way around. To the best of my knowledge very few of the 250s were produced. This truck was converted to a dually flatbed at one time which was very well done and looks factory.  I also have a new electronic ignition module for the distributor but its running so good I have not yet installed. I have serviced the transmission and differential. I also replaced the points, condenser, plugs, cap, rotor, coil, solenoid, fuel filters.  The left front wheel cylinder needs to be replaced but its drivable. Parking Brake mechanism works well, but needs new brake shoes/pads. There is no rust on the frame but the cab corners would need repair in a restoration. Clutch shifts good but there doesn't seem to be much pedal left. There might be some adjustment underneath but I am not sure.  The truck is flat black, but the original color was Meadow Green. Truck drives and rides good.   Truck comes with most  original parts like arm rests, door panels, etc. Truck has a clean open title.  Truck has dual fuel tanks.There is plenty of room on the running boards for tool boxes, generator, etc.  Has a nice stereo in the glove box with custom speaker boxes on the floor. Some say this is the coolest truck ever made and gets thumbs up and complements. I think out of the 50 vehicles that I have owned this is one of the most fun to drive. I hate to sell this truck but I don't have the room and I can't stand to let it sit outside. Mileage stated is an approximate, we're not really sure. This trucks so rare there is not another 1956 Ford F250 for sale on Ebay.

 PLEASE READ!  We are not trying to misrepresent the truck in any way but it was brought to our attention that the 56 has a rounded front window and rectangular vents and this one don't. This truck has a clean 56 title and matching Vin plate.  Looks like someone cloned this truck as a 56.  After further review of the front grille we think is is a 53 Deluxe cab.  It is still a cool truck but it don't seem to be the true 56 it says it is.   Thanks and please understand this ad revision.

2015 Ford Mustang specs revealed, GT to pack 435 HP

Thu, 17 Jul 2014

The 2015 Ford Mustang sounds great so far - at least on paper. Ford has just announced specs for the latest version of the iconic pony car in Dearborn, telling Autoblog that it will pump out as much as 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque from its 5.0-liter V8.
Those gaudy figures power the naturally aspirated GT model, and they easily eclipse the "more than" 420 hp and 390 lb-ft that Ford originally estimated.
The 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder makes 310 hp and 320 lb-ft, and it's the first turbo Mustang since the 1986 SVO.

NHTSA closes probes on Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey

Wed, 09 Jan 2013

The Detroit News reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has officially closed its investigations into 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2004-2005 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey models. The separate probes found no issues that pose safety concerns. NHTSA began investigating certain Grand Cherokee SUVs over complaints that power steering hoses could detach during operation, thereby increasing the risk of a vehicle fire. Of the 24 reports of failure, none alleged smoke or fire in the engine bay, and Chrysler has since modified the power steering cooler assembly to reduce the likelihood of the failure.
Meanwhile, certain Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey vehicles garnered a government probe after receiving complaints that the models were equipped with faulty scissor jacks. The agency had received six reports of the jacks failing or causing injuries, including one incident that resulted in a fatality. But NHTSA says the jack failure rate is similar to those found in other vehicles. In those six cases, the government agency found the jacks were being used for something other than changing a tire, and investigators could not determine whether the emergency brake was set or the rear tires were properly chocked.

Ford rethinking vehicle launch strategy

Tue, 07 May 2013

With a new boss at the helm, Ford is looking at new ways to improve its vehicle launches in North America to prevent recent issues that have popped up with models like the Lincoln MKZ, Ford Escape and Ford Fusion. Speaking with Automotive News, Ford's new president of the Americas, Joe Hinrichs, revealed a few ways the automaker plans to avoid early build issues such as the engine fires on certain 2013 Escape and Fusion models and months-long delays for customers to receive their MKZs.
It sounds like the root of the problems may have been Ford's relationship with suppliers compounded by the fact that the product surge came on the heels of the recent industry-crippling recession, and in the AN article, Hinrichs says improvements are being made to reduce problems during the launch of new or redesigned models. Three such improvements that were implemented during the first quarter of this year including more rigorous quality comparisons, better use of computer technology to catch major problems sooner and hiring engineers to work closer with suppliers.
