This Ford was purchased new by Genero Forte at the Vincent Montone dealership in Hazleton, Pennsylvania on March
21st, 1959, and it remained in the original owner's family until 2014. The car was always stored indoors, and has
covered just 30,333 miles since new. It is in remarkable original condition, and retains 60% of the factory
applied paint, as well as the original seat covers, door panels, carpeting, and floor mat. The interior surfaces
show minimal wear, constant with the miles, and the entire car feels like a well maintained two year old
automobile. All of the switches, windows, and latches feel solid, with almost no play or wear. The steering wheel
retains it's original white paint, with a few spots just beginning to wear through after 30,000 miles. I have
inspected this car thoroughly, and every part of it confirms the low mileage and excellent care it has received
since day one. The floors and trunk are solid, and still retain their original paint under the carpeting and trunk
mat. The door panels are in superb condition, with virtually no wear on the armrests, and no warping on the
panels. All of the windows crank up and down smoothly, and the side glass and windshield are original with the
Ford scripts. The weatherstripping is all original, and is still soft, retained by the factory brush-on glue. The
top well is excellent, along with the original top boot (not shown in the pictures, but included with purchase).
The power top works very well, with no known leaks in the hydraulics. All of the lights are functional, and the
horn and wipers both work. The heater works well, along with the original six tube AM radio. This car is equipped
with the desirable four barrel Thunderbird 352 V8, which was the largest engine available in the Galaxie for 1959.
It also has an automatic transmission, but manual steering and brakes. This car was stored for many years, and
returned to the road in 2007 by the original owner's family. The engine was completely rebuilt at this time, and
receipts for the machine work and installation go with the car

KBB 2013 Brand Image Awards has some obvious and oddball winners

Sat, 30 Mar 2013

The sixth edition of the Kelley Blue Book Brand Image Awards have crowned a wide range of winners - in a couple of cases the recipient of the laurels might say more about KBB users than they do about the actual winner. Compiled from the responses of more than 12,000 shoppers on KBB.com over the past year, there are 13 categories broken into non-luxury, luxury and truck segments "representing the combined wisdom of the American car-buying public."
The award categories have been revamped this year, with some dropping off, some new ones appearing and at least one other given a new term. What isn't surprising is that Honda won Most Trusted Brand for the second year running, Best Value Brand for the third year in a row and took Best Overall Brand, which wasn't on last year's list of awards.
On our own shores, in the non-luxury categories Chrysler got Most Refined Brand and Buick took Best Value Luxury Brand. Neither one of those marques won anything in last year's Brand Image Awards, while Cadillac, which won Best Interior Design Brand and Best Comfort Brand last year - those awards disappeared this year - went home without a single accolade.

Subcompact sales slump, yet again

Ford F-450 claims best-in-class towing, company abandons practice of removing items to boost payload number

Tue, 02 Sep 2014

The ongoing heavy-duty truck battle between Ford and Ram is showing no signs of slowing down. The Blue Oval is trying to remove at least one point of contention between the two brands by testing its 2015 F-450 Super Duty using the Society of Automotive Engineers J2807 towing standard, which Ram also uses. In the new evaluation, the F-450 is rated at a max towing capacity of 31,200 pounds. That's an identical amount as under Ford's own, previous test.
"We leave no doubt with customers that the F-450 pickup truck has best-in-class towing of 31,200 pounds - whether tested using our own internal towing standards or SAE J2807," said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president for Global Product Development, in the company's release.
At the same time, Ford is also changing how it calculates the F-450's payload. Instead of using its minimum curb weight as before, the brand is now using the truck's base curb weight. The revision lowers the pickup's rating to 5,300 pounds, compared to 5,450 pounds previously. The company said in its announcement that the reason for this is "aligning its payload rating practices with other manufacturers to make it easier for customers to compare vehicles." General Motors made a similar switch for its pickups in August.
