THE CAR WAS IN STORAGE FOR THE PAST 15 YEARS. I HAD THE RADIATOR FLUSHED AND ALL OF THE COOLANT HOSES REPLACED, TUNED THE CAR UP AND REPLACED THE TIMING BELT. BOTH FRONT CALIPERS ARE NEW ALONG WITH THE FRONT PADS. THE CAR RUNS GREAT. THE INTERIOR IS IN GREAT SHAPE BUT THE CARPET COULD BE REPLACED. THE REAR RUMBLE SEAT IS IN GREAT SHAPE AS WELL. THE BODY IS IN NICE SHAPE I DONT SEE ANY CRACKS, JUST SOME SCRATCHES AND NICKS WHICH I THINK A GOOD BUFF JOB WOULD TAKE CARE OF. THE BUMPERS AND WHEEL SPOKES HAVE SOME RUSTY SPOTS AND PITTING BUT SHOULD CLEAN UP REALLY NICE WITH SOME STEEL WOOL. THE TOP IS IN NICE SHAPE WITH NO TEARS OR RIPS AND THE BACK WINDOW IS IN NICE SHAPE AS WELL. IT COMES WITH THE SIDE CURTAIN WINDOWS WHICH LOOK LIKE THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN USED AND IT ALSO HAS THE STRAP-ON TRUNK. AFTER ALL THAT BEING SAID THE CAR REALLY IS IN NICE SHAPE CONCIDERING THE AGE AND CAN BE A GREAT CAR WITH VERY LITTLE TLC...THIS WOULD BE GREAT FOR THOSE CRUISE NIGHTS...CAR SHOWS..AND PARADES

Leno drives Henry Ford II's all-original '52 Ferrari 212 Barchetta

Tue, 17 Jun 2014

The story of the relationship between Henry Ford II and Enzo Ferrari is absolutely fascinating. The two great men of the auto industry had what appeared to be a burgeoning friendship until Ferrari pulled out of a deal to sell his company to Ford in the '60s. The latest car featured in Jay Leno's Garage is a 1952 Ferrari 212 Barchetta that tells the very beginnings of that story.
This Prancing Horse was a gift to Ford from Enzo when the two companies were first thinking about merging, according to the curator of the Petersen Automotive Museum. Ferrari really wanted to show off its best so instead of the 212's normal V12, this car was fitted with the larger 2.7-liter unit from a Ferrari 225. The car has been almost unaltered since then. It still wears its original paint, and it's tires date back to 1954.
The great thing about the Petersen is that unlike a lot of auto museums, the people there actually drive the cars and keep them in working order. Once on the road with Leno behind the wheel, this Ferrari really sings. Unfortunately, he can't open it up too much because the 60-year-old tires really hold things back. Scroll down to watch this amazing piece of automotive history and learn it's possible effect on the styling of the original Ford Thunderbird.

2014 Ford Fusion order guide reveals new base Hybrid model, equipment changes

Tue, 23 Apr 2013

We've gotten our grubby little digits on the dealer order guide for the as-yet-unreleased 2014 Ford Fusion thanks to an anonymous tipster, and while there isn't much that's unexpected, there are some meaningful equipment changes to report after the rakish sedan's first year on the market.
Mechanically, the big news is, of course, the recently confirmed availability of the 1.5-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder paired with a six-speed automatic. The powertrain replaces the 1.6-liter automatic setup of 2013, though if you want a manual transmission, you'll still get the extra .1-liter of displacement.
On the equipment front, there are newly available rear inflatable seatbelts - as seen previously on the Explorer - along with a new heated steering wheel and cooled seat option on Titanium and Titanium Hybrid models (the latter two options will be late availability).

Fallon picks Ford F-150 King Ranch, launches dealership contest

Tue, 01 Apr 2014

New truck! Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show has been searching for the perfect new truck for a few weeks now, soliciting help from all corners in the process. Last night, Fallon made the announcement that the Ford F-150 King Ranch - in all of its cowboy glory - had been picked as his big winner.
To add some more spice to a storyline that now dips deeply into the realm of the advertorial, Fallon also announced a contest to see which Ford dealership would get the privilege of selling him the King Ranch. Dubbed "Fingers on a 4x4" The Tonight Show has invited 10 dealer reps from around the country to keep their hands on Jimmy's F-150 for as long as possible. Last salesperson standing wins.
Watch Fallon make his pick and introduce the dealer reps below, and be sure to click on the second video for a live-streaming feed of Fingers on a 4x4 in action (the contest seems to be going strong).
