This is a 1929 Ford Model A Roadster, It is in driving condition, runs well and stops well. It has been in storage for over 60 years. It was never restored, It was painted green and red in the 40s by a man who came home from service after WWII. It has the typical scratches and dings of an old unrestored car. It is very solid with just a few spots of rust. He also painted the interior red along with the firewall to snap it up a bit. I did take the oil pan and the head off and found it had been rebuilt 60 over and still had white grease on the crank and almost no carbon on the pistons. I put a new head gasket on and that was that! The drive train is all original and has just been maintained through the years. It was a trunk model but the owner flipped the lid down and brazed it in place as a rumble seat. I cut off the welds and turned it back to a trunk. The interior door panels and kick panels were made of sheet metal and were well done for 60 years ago. Other than that it is the way it was fixed up back in the 40s. The headlight and taillight wiring needs to be redone as it is still the old cloth covered type. The rims are 17 inch 1934 models. The exhaust is straight with no muffler, it exits just in front of the rear tire under the running board, it has a nice throaty sound. I did put a new battery in it last year. The patina on this car is just great. The car could be left as is and driven. It is a true period piece, it is very hard to find a roadster that has been left alone all these years! The old homestead is sold so its time to go to a new caretaker as I just don't have room to keep it anymore.

Ford Mustang pinball machine has supple wrist, plays by sense of smell [w/video]

Fri, 07 Feb 2014

Ford didn't have anything major to show off at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, so it seems it instead opted to have some fun - it brought a row of pinball machines to the show. Yes, pinball machines.
We originally told you about the Stern Pinball Ford Mustang machine a few days ago, and as day two of the Chicago show is a bit of a slow one, we opted to head to the show floor and get some snaps of the bank of new machines. Not surprisingly, there's plenty for the Mustang fan in each of these machines, ranging frond different models, to logos to a full model.
Take a look below for our full gallery of live shots, available up top. Then head below for our original gallery of stock images, along with a video and press release on the new machines.

Feds looking into Ford Explorer exhaust leak complaints

Fri, 20 Jun 2014

There may be a burgeoning problem with exhaust leaks in the 2011-2014 model year Ford Explorer. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is examining multiple complaints of a gasoline smell in the cabin of these SUVs. However, the exact cause of this problem is still unknown.
"The agency is reviewing all available data and will take appropriate action as warranted," said a NHTSA spokesperson in an email to Automotive News. Owners seem to generally complain on the regulator's website of the smell entering the cabin through the air vents. At this time, the government organization has not yet opened an official investigation into the problem, though. When it does begin inspecting vehicles, NHTSA posts a detailed breakdown of its public data online.
Similar problems have been reported about the Explorer in the past, though. In 2013, Ford issued a recall for the 2013 model year of the SUV due to a fuel leak that could cause drivers to smell a gasoline odor and repaired them again later for another possible leak. In response to Autoblog's questions, Ford responded via email: "We are not aware of a NHTSA investigation. We are currently reviewing the case and in the event that any action is required, we will address it promptly."

Facelifted Ford Focus caught testing in the cold

Wed, 18 Dec 2013

It's that time in the life of the Ford Focus to get a little work done - a nip-tuck here, some Botox there. Yes, Ford is testing a facelifted version of its global C-segment entry, which first hit markets in Europe and North America in May 2011.
Like the touchup on the Fiesta, expect Ford's gaping grille to make its first appearance on the Focus. Our spy photographers point out that this is likely to be a more comprehensive makeover than previous spy shots suggested, based on the additional camouflage seen here on the front and rear ends of this five-door model. New head and taillights are also likely in order, as are changes to the front and rear fascia.
The interior was also snapped and features a cleaner design with a larger central display. Other than that, it looks like some buttons have been changed, making us think most of the Focus' updates are limited to the exterior.
