Darlington, Indiana, United States

 Up for auction is a 1966 Galaxie 500 Convertible. It retains its original 289 2V engine and automatic transmission. Options include power steering, manual brakes, and a power top. The car will need a full restoration. It will start with the keys while being fed from a small gas tank under the car. The cars gas tank is not hooked up and I would want to run a bunch of junk through the carb anyway. The electrical system on the Galaxie seems to be in good shape. The headlights come on and off with the switch and change with dim/bright switch, turn signals both front and rear work, flashers, and best of all the power top goes up and down great. The windows roll up and down good, doors open,shut, lock, etc. as they should. The interior of the car is in pretty fair shape for being original. The piping on the driver side of the front bench seat has a small piece missing and there is a tear when you pull the driver side of the bench forward that can only see when it is forward. The carpet is in usable shape. The dash has a few cracks in it but overall very usable. The windshield will need replaced along with the top material. I have several misc. pieces and parts to throw in with the car. including a complete taillight for the drivers side and several trim pieces. Also included is new top material in white, a water pump which will need replacing, and the original carb. As far as the body is concerned, the floors have had a patch on the passenger side, the frame is very solid, front fenders doors, hood, and trunk lid are in restorable condition. It will need a driver side rear quarter and trunk pan. The main part of the trunk is in great shape but the drivers side was messed up when the car was backed into something. The car will come with 4 14" steel wheels and tires that will work for transport. The car is not drivable at this time. It will need trailered to its new home. I can work out delivery for a fee within a couple hundred miles. Please call or email with any questions 765-376-3486 Thanks and Happy bidding!!!

Ford considering return to Le Mans with new EcoBoost LMP2

Mon, 21 Jul 2014

If you want to see a Ford racing prototype, you need look no further than the United SportsCar Championship, where the Blue Oval fields two Daytona Prototypes powered by an EcoBoost-branded 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6. But according to the latest rumors, that may not be enough for Ford, which has as much brand to promote overseas as it does back home.
That could be why Racer magazine is reporting that Ford may be poised to return to Le Mans in the coming years. As we all know, Ford competed at Le Mans in the mid-through-late '60s, bringing home four consecutive overall wins with the legendary GT40. The new program would not, according to Racer, seek to relive those glory days, but would instead compete for class wins in the LMP2 category.
Currently, LMP2 regulations are somewhat split between the United SportsCar Championship in North America on the one hand and ACO-sanctioned series like the European Le Mans Series, Asian Le Mans Series and FIA World Endurance Championship on the other, but plans are underway for the regulations to be unified in time for the 2017 season. That could be when Ford is targeting its return, allowing it to compete on both sides of the Atlantic to maximize its exposure.

Google's new Android Autos OS unveiled, will be in cars this year [w/video]

Wed, 25 Jun 2014

Connected cars are coming en-masse. We know this much. How, though, remains something of an open question, especially as two of the world's largest tech companies are preparing to battle for control of your car's dashboard. On the one hand, we have Apple and its CarPlay system. And now, we know what Google has been working on with Auto Link.
Its new name is Android Auto, and yes, it's based off the Android architecture that is the primary challenger to Apple's iOS mobile operating system. Announced at Google's I/O conference today, Android Auto functions similarly to CarPlay - owners will need to plug their smartphones into their cars to access the full breadth of capability.
In Android Auto's case, that means a wealth of voice controls to limit distracted driving. Google's marquee apps will be available when the interface arrives in production models later this year, including Google Play Music, Google Maps and voice-activated texting and text playback. Meanwhile, developers will be able to begin designing custom apps for the new system via an upcoming software development kit.

Report: GM struggling to market turbo technology

Tue, 20 Apr 2010

In the automotive realm, marketing can sometimes prove just as important as the actual product. Take, for instance, Ford's well regarded EcoBoost technology, which couples turbocharging with direct injection to produce more horsepower and reduce fuel consumption. Would it surprise you to hear that General Motors has had similar technology on the market for over three years?
It's true. GM's first turbocharged, direct injected powerplants hit the market for the 2007 model. The 2.0-liter Ecotec mills put down an impressive 260 horsepower and a matching 260 pound-feet of torque, and they were lauded by the press in the engine bays of the Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Sky, Chevrolet Cobalt SS and Chevrolet HHR SS. But few people outside a core group of enthusiasts actually remember this fact.
Says Uwe Grebe, executive director of GM's global advanced engineering, "We didn't have a badge and say, 'This is the most important thing we will put on all our brochures.'" Ford, however, did just that, and it's EcoBoost engines are right at the tips of all our tongues when we discuss today's most advanced powerplants. So, how does The General fix its mistake?
