1964 Or 1965 Ford Falcon On A International Scout 4x4 Frame Rat Rod Lot Drives on 2040-cars
Saint Michael, Minnesota, United States
Up for auction in a 1964 or 1965 Ford Falcon body sitting on a International Scout 4x4 drive train. It's called a Ford-National. There is no title for the car or the 4x4 frame and is sold with a bill of sale only. I repeat there is no title and sold with bill of sale only. Vehicle is sold as is with no warranty.
I have driven it around the block and it runs and drives. The brakes need to be bleed. but if it ever warms up in the Mid-West I will try to do that. They work, but just need to be pumped like the Flintstones mobile to stop. The car runs good, but the carb really needs to be adjusted or rebuilt. It hates to idle and Again if it warms up I will tinker with that. It is a Holly 2-barrel. The motor runs off a bottle under the hood. The gas tank looks nice, but the fuel lines have not been run yet. The glass is good including the windshield and all the windows roll up and down. I have not been in the trunk yet and am looking for a key to get in. It has a 3-speed on the floor and shifts well. Use as a parts vehicle, Rat Rod or a mud runner, you make the call. I think it looks cool and is different and I purchased it for that reason. What you see is what it comes with and nothing else. It needs body work, tune up, interior work and who knows what else. That is all I know about the vehicle since I did not dive into it and just drove it up and down the block before loading it on a trailer. If it does not sell I may part it out, fix the mechanics and use as a mud runner or use as a rat rod. The options are endless since there is a blank canvas to start with. It will need tires also, the ones on it are cracked. If you have more questions please shoot me an email I work during the day and will get back to you in the evening.
Winning bidder to pay $300.00 by pay pal within 5 days of auction ending and vehicle can sit for 30 days if need to before pick-up. Balance to be paid by check, money order or cash before vehicle will be released.

Ford CEO Alan Mulally has less than a week left in his role of leading the Blue Oval before he hands off duties to Mark Fields on July 1. It doesn't look like Mulally is going to be shuffling off into his retirement anytime soon, though. The 68-year-old is being rather secretive about his next move, but he tells Bloomberg in a recent interview that he plans to stay close to Ford. Also, if Fields wants to ask for any advice, Mulally is happy to help.
Mulally took over at Ford in 2006 and led the company through a seriously rough patch in the auto industry. According to Bloomberg, he became famous or his Thursday meetings where executives were forced to deal with any problems before they could leave. Since announcing his retirement from Ford in May, Mulally has been insuring a smooth transition of power by traveling the world to all of company's major locations and saying goodbye to employees and dealers.
In terms of the future at Ford, Mulally doesn't predict any big changes in management style because the rest of the executive team is staying in place. He believes that Fields is going to maintain the processes already in place to keep things going. After all, it seems to be working. The company is predicting a return to profitability in Europe next year and is opening 88 new dealers in China. If the business could get its recalls under control, things could get even better.

It would seem Volvo is finally getting around to throwing all of Ford's things out of the apartment. Automotive News reports the Swedish automaker is preparing to unleash a range of new engines as well as a fresh platform designed entirely in house. The powerplants include an all-new four-cylinder engine set to bow before the end of this year before arriving in the US by 2014. Shortly thereafter, the world should get its first glimpse at the next-generation XC60, which will the company's first model to make use of the Volvo scalable platform architecture (SPA). US buyers can expect to see that machine on their roads by early 2015.
The next V70 and S80 will also use the SPA, though those models will carry V90 and S90 designations when they hit dealer floors. But that doesn't mean Volvo has completely weened itself off of Ford technology. The V40 will continue to ride on Ford bones until the model's next chassis can be co-developed between Volvo and Geely.
Ken Block became famous for his series of Gymkhana videos, but he's a real racer in his own right. Block has competed many rounds in the FIA World Rally Championship and also rallied in the 2013 Rally America series. He nearly won that latter title last year - if not for a massive crash in the final event of the season.
Block and his co-driver Alex Gelsomino went into the Lake Superior Performance Rally needing a win to take the championship. However, missing a clump of dirt on the side of the road and one little word in the pace notes was all it took to catapult Block's Fiesta off the road and into a tumbling accident. Block says his initial reaction was anger because the crash came out of nowhere.
For 2014, Block is joining the FIA World Rallycross Championship for at least three rounds. He'll drive a Ford Fiesta for the Hoonigan Racing Division at the Norwegian, French and Turkish events of the 12-round championship. Former Formula One World Champion Jacques Villeneuve will also compete in the series.
