I am not Ford man but I had to save this car. The previous owner was going to use it for a demolition derby. I couldn't stand to see a Galaxy 2dr fastback get smashed. 
The car was originally a 289 with a 3 speed cruise-o-matic. I swapped out the 289 for a low milage Ford reman 302 (18K). I added a 4 barrel, edelbrock intake and brand new Edelbrock 650 carb. The sale will include the original 289 motor and tranny to take it back to original, if you prefer. 
This car is not a rust bucket like most. It is rusted in the rear body mounts. floor pans are good, just rust pin hole in passenger side. This is indicated in the pics. quarters are pretty sold, not totally rust like most. rocker are ok also. one hole in the drivers side rocker. trunk is solid except for body mount. 
The front windshield is cracked but all the other glass is good, not faded or discolored. 
Has factory power steering. 
Interior is rough and in need of total restoration. Carpet and headliner are gone, but the rest is there. seats are torn and dash is cracked. Gauges all seem to work. 
I only took a few pics. I thought I would let buyers  request pics  as you want. 
A tree fell on the hood so it will probably need a new skin. See in pics. 

I do have the hood I just haven't put it back on since engine swap. 

That is about all I can think of for now. I have tried to explain the car as best I can so let me know what information you need.

A 500 dollar deposit is do via paypal within 24 hours of successful bid. the remaining amount is do in cash on day of pickup or within 4days of auction end via cashiers check.   

Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs. The car runs and drives nice so it can be loaded easily, i prefer no International bidding.

Ford faces class-action lawsuit for selling vehicles without brake override systems

Fri, 29 Mar 2013

A total of 20 Ford customers are suing the automaker in a class-action lawsuit for selling vehicles "vulnerable to unintended acceleration." According to Reuters, the suit names 30 models built between 2002 and 2010 with electronic throttle control systems but without a brake override system. Those include the 2004-2012 F-Series pickups and the 2005-2009 Lincoln Town Car. Adam Levitt, a partner with the law firm of Grant & Eisenhofer says the plaintiffs in the case want "to be compensated for their economic losses by having overpaid for cars that contained defects." Levitt contends that the plaintiffs would not have bought their vehicles or paid less for them had they known there was no brake override system in place.
Ford began installing brake override systems in its vehicles beginning in 2010. In response to the lawsuit, Ford has pointed to research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that indicated that unintended acceleration is mostly caused by driver error, saying in a statement that, "NHTSA's work is far more scientific and trustworthy than work done by personal injury lawyers and their paid experts."
Belville et al v. Ford Motor Co. will be heard in US District Court in the Southern District of West Virginia.

Mulally to stay at Ford through end of 2014 at least

Fri, 06 Dec 2013

Alan Mulally isn't going anywhere... at least not just yet. The CEO who helped turn around Ford Motor Company has been linked to the top job at tech behemoth Microsoft, leading to a flurry of rumors about potential successors. Those rumors, though, may have just been put to rest - at least for a little while.
Speaking to Edsel Ford II (great-grandson of company founder Henry Ford) at the unveiling of the new Mustang, Automotive News Europe confirmed that Mulally would stick around until the end of next year. "Alan is staying through the end of 2014 and that's all I know," said Ford. "Frankly, he has told us that his plan is to stay with Ford through the end of 2014."
Presuming that Edsel Ford is correct and that Microsoft isn't so hot on Mulally that it saves the position for him, it seems increasingly likely that the 68-year-old exec is more interested in continuing to work in Dearborn rather than in Redmond.

Watch Piquet and Mansell bend some sheetmetal in Ford Fusion GP

Tue, 12 Feb 2013

As we told you about before, there were four episodes planned for the Ford Fusion GP campaign in Brazil, and the whole series has now run its course. The Ford ads pit Brazilian Formula One driver Nelson Piquet against English F1 pilot Nigel Mansell driving the new Fusion, the two coming together again after their partnership at the Williams F1 team ended in a miserable state more than 20 years ago.
They're lined up for you below, in reverse chronological order. You should watch number three first, though, as it adds a bit more spice to the NASCAR action in the fourth.
