1967 Ford Fairlane 500xl Ranchero 289v8 on 2040-cars
Mooreville, Mississippi, United States
1967 Ford Fairlane 500XL Ranchero Barn Find!! This survivor is pretty well all original except the hood has been changed( original hood was in bed as picture shows and comes with the car and is in fair shape itself) All the trim package is on car, and is fairly good shape. The interior is original worn condition and seat is in good condition. Also as picture show it comes with complete set of 6 floor pans( cost about $600)..picture shows where someone started to put patch panels in floor. The ranchero has a 289V8 automatic with power steering and disc brakes. The side glass and back glass are crack free but does need windshield replaced. Not sure if rims are original or maybe old mustang rims. The ranchero runs and shifts good, but probably needs to have gas tank cleaned(when we pulled it out we used gas jug to crank it) probably needs brake work, it slows down but not to a quick stop. The car has normal rust in places, tried to take pictures of that and also as you can see in pics..the front bed plate near cab is rusted and needs work. The car has not been cleaned up, neither has chrome or trim its in found shape tho we did water hose it down on outside. You don't see to many of these around, would make great project car for someone. Thanks for looking..if you have any questions just shoot me a message.

The last 2014 Ford Shelby GT500 Convertible was sold on Saturday at a Barrett-Jackson auction in Reno, Nevada, for $500,000. Ford donated the Mustang to be auctioned for charity, and all of the money is going to the Brain Injury Association of America.
Parnelli Jones, winner of the 1963 Indianapolis 500, was there on behalf of the BIAA with his son Page, who suffered a brain injury in a sprint car crash in 1994. The bidding increased quickly, reaching $500k in no time, spreading a bit more hope to people who live with brain injuries.
The winning bidder will be able to choose the GT500's exterior, interior and stripe colors, and is scheduled to receive the car, signed by Parnelli Jones in appreciation for the donation, by the end of 2013. Watch the video below to see the auction-block action.
It happens every year. We bid adieu to some cars and trucks that will be missed, and say good riddance to others wondering how they stayed around so long. Whether they're being killed off for slow sales or due to a new product coming along to replace them, the list of vehicles being discontinued after 2012 is surprisingly long and diverse.
CNN Money has compiled a list of departing vehicles, to which we've added a few more of our own. In the slow sales column, cars like the Lexus HS 250h, Mercedes-Benz R-Class and the full Maybach lineup appear, while the Ford Escape Hybrid, Mazda CX-7 and Hyundai Veracruz are all having their gaps filled with more modern and more fuel-efficient alternatives. Obvious exceptions to the rule include models that still sell in decent numbers like the Jeep Liberty and the Chrysler Town & Country (which will eventually be replaced by a crossover-like vehicle).

We may regard Ford as an American automaker, but ask a Brit and they may tell you otherwise. The Blue Oval has, after all, been selling cars in the UK since 1903, and started manufacturing there as far back as 1911 when it began local production of the Model T in Manchester. Last year Ford ended 100 years of vehicle manufacturing in the UK when the last Transit van rolled off the assembly line in Southampton, but it's still the biggest-selling automotive marque in Britain.
Ford has led the British market for 34 out of the past 45 years, selling more Fiestas than any other company sells any other car in the UK since 2009... when it overtook the Focus. In fact the Fiesta has now become the best-selling car in British history, topping 4,115,000 units since its introduction in 1976. The previous record was held by - you guessed it - another Ford: the Escort sold 4,105,961 units over the course of its 32 years on the British market.
Although the Fiesta is no longer manufactured in the UK (previous versions having been built at Dagenham until 2002), engines are: the EcoBoost line was developed at the company's R&D center in Essex and are built at the factory in Dunton, while its diesel engines were developed at Dagenham in East London. Even the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine in the Fiesta ST is built in South Wales.
