Swisher, Iowa, United States

 1996 Ford F350 XLT Crew Cab long box 4x4, 7.3 Powerstroke Diesel with a five speed manual O/D transmission , WARN manual lockout hubs, limited slip rear diff., I believe the axle ratio to be a 4:10.

I bought this truck about a year ago, as a project, it had a bad motor (someone eithered it) and had sat for a while (owner undecided on selling or fixing). I purchased a long block, had the heads rebuilt and the block tanked, checked, and honed by Lawrence  Machine Shop. Engine was reassembled with new cam bearings, rod bearings, main bearings, rings, oil pump, water pump, glow plugs, glow plug relay, cam sensor, several other new sensors, a reman. HPOP pump, HPOP regulator, and reman. injectors. New valve cover gaskets w/new wiring connectors, new thermostat, serpentine belt, pulleys and tensioner, new boots for intake manifold pipes, updated cold air intake. 3" down pipe and 4" exhaust all the way back, new shifter boot, and two new batteries.

Body and paint in really good condition, no major dents or scratches, has been cleaned, buffed, and waxed. One small area on drivers door has blistering (picture 7), the pickup bed is typical dinged, dented, and scratched but not rusty (could use a bed liner or line-x).  Interior is in good condition, normal wear on drivers seat (small tear picture13), one small puncture/hole on rear seat (picture 20), head liner and door panels in good condition.  SONY AM/FM CD player. NEW CARPET. Really nice (Eagle?)Alloy wheels with 33-12.50x16 Hercules Terra Trac tires, plenty of tread left.

Tow hitch, brake controller, and NEW CURT goose neck hitch with turnover ball.

I have tried to remember all that was done to this truck and show as much as I could with photos, but I probably forgot something. It is a really nice truck and looks, runs, sounds good and turns a lot of heads. I have put about a hundred and fifty miles on it since completed. I never intended to keep this project truck and I feel it is ready to sell before I start liking it to much. It could use step bars and a bed liner but I will leave those touches to the new owner. If you have questions or need other photos I will try to respond, can be seen or driven locally, and will be for offered for sale locally also, so may end early.

I have plenty of receipts and a clear title in hand. Contact : rkolosik@hotmail.com

As with any seventeen year old vehicle there is no warranty intended or implied.

Shipping and transportation is buyers responsibility.

AS I DO NOT WISH TO MISREPRESENT THIS TRUCK, I WAS ASKED WHAT THE CONDITION OF THE REAR WHEEL WELLS WAS. THEY APPEARED REALLY NICE BUT I HAD NEVER REMOVED THE FENDER FLAIRS. I REMOVED THEM THIS MORNING AND THE FINDINGS WERE DISAPPOINTING. THERE IS RUST. I APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE, PLEASE ADJUST YOUR BIDDING ACCORDINGLY. CONTACT ME IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS, PROBLEMS, OR PICTURES YOU WISH TO SEE. I HAVE EMAILED THE PERSON THAT ASKED THE QUESTION AND INFORMED THEM OF THE RUST ISSUE.

First 1K next-gen Mustangs to carry 2014 1/2 model year?

Thu, 18 Jul 2013

A new report from Mustangs Daily, citing insider sources at Ford, tells us that the Blue Oval will produce 1,000 next-generation Mustangs with the model year designation of 2014 ½, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the storied marque. The commemorative half-year designation is a rumor that's been swirling in Mustang forums for quite some time now, and seems more plausible than ever with this most recent report. Certainly it's not far-fetched to believe that Ford will want to make a big deal of the golden anniversary for its most-loved model.
The story (compiled by Drew Phillips, who runs the aforementioned Mustang site when he's not directing the photography on these pages) goes on to say that the limited-run cars will be the first built on the new Mustang platform internally known as S550 (and spied testing in the attached gallery). Each car is said to carry a "special" VIN and build number, though no performance upgrades versus the 2015 cars to follow are in the works. A collector's dream then, rather than a weekend racer's.

Project Ugly Horse: Part IX

One Step at a Time
Nearly every flavor of exotic driveline has been shoved into the ubiquitous Ford at some point or another.
Chuck Schwynoch had been patiently listening to my ramblings on the other end of the phone for a solid half hour. I'm not too big of a man to know when to ask for help, and at this point, I desperately needed some assistance. The truth is, working on a machine like a Fox Body Mustang is as easy as breathing thanks to the wealth of information available on the web. Nearly every flavor of exotic driveline has been shoved into the ubiquitous Ford at some point or another, and odds are the sorry souls behind those builds shared the highs and lows of their torment with the internet community.

Automakers tussle over owners of 'orphan' makes

Thu, 10 May 2012

When General Motors put down several of its brands in recent years, it also let loose thousands of brand-loyal customers who will eventually need another car.
R.L. Polk Associates estimates there are more than 18 million cars from 16 discontinued makes on the road today. Those "orphan owners" have sales-hungry competitors seeing dollar signs. GM is offering Saturn owners $1,000 cash toward a Chevy Cruze, Cadillac CTS or a GMC Acadia. Ford is giving its Mercury lease customers a chance to get out of their contracts with no early-termination penalty and offering to waive six remaining payments if they drive off in a Ford or Lincoln.
Edmunds.com research shows the efforts are paying off somewhat for GM, with 39 percent of Pontiac owners, 37 percent of Hummer owners and 31 percent of Saturn owners taking delivery of another GM-branded vehicle. But that leaves as much as 69 percent of owners going elsewhere. Ford, Honda and Toyota seem to be attracting many former GM owners.
