 1931 Model A roadster highboy project with a "B" motor. I just bought an unexpected project so I decided that I have to sell my prewar/ postwar stripped down roadster project. This car is about 80% done and will not take much to finish. This is a late 31' deluxe roadster titled in my name and registered to the number on it's super clean original chassis. I pulled the body and had the bare frame sandblasted and etch primed and painted black along with all the other suspension parts. The front suspension has a stock wishbone, Okie Joe 4" dropped A axle, 37-41 round back spindles, 40' juice brakes, 40' lever shocks. Stock A steering box, pitman arm, and wheel.
Rear suspension is original A banjo with 40' Juice brakes, original A spring reversed and 3 leafs removed, stock radius rods and torque tube. 40' lever shocks.
All the suspension parts have been cleaned and all wear items and hardware replaced if needed.
B motor was a running take out from a mint B chassis. I took the pan off and shimmed the Babbitt with plastigauge and checked everything. Custom header and downdraft intake made with WAC custom flanges. Ultra rare Simmons Super Power Head, and Thomas finned valve cover. Nice Ford 94 carb. Stock B head and water pump is also available. Stock A trans and flywheel housing.
Wheels and tires are 16 X 4 steel wheels on all 4 corners with like new 4.50-16 firestone deluxe champions on the front and New 7.00-16 firestone Deluxe champions on the rear. I will be glad to sell the car less wheels and tires.
The Body is a nice original body that looks to have never had any exterior patch panels. The subrails are really nice. The wheel wells need to be replaced and there has been patch work on the rear floors. The Rumble lid and doors are really nice with very minimal work to fix. I have the deluxe top irons, wood bows, and back glass. 
Car needs to have the brakes gone thru, master cyl mounted, brakes plumbed, wiring, radiator checked, etc
I have a lot of new parts for the car and I am sure I am forgetting a lot of details so please call me for more info.

Ford Mustang SVT caught looking fierce on the 'Ring

Tue, 15 Jul 2014

The next-generation Ford Mustang SVT is one of the most anticipated performance cars of the moment. We've already seen it testing multiple times, but it has always been covered is some very heavy camouflage. However, Ford has just given us our best view yet of the new muscle car. According to our spy photographer, the Mustang was at the Nürburgring for high-speed testing, which meant that the Blue Oval had to remove most of the heavy obfuscation that the SVT has worn previously.
The stylish, more revealing camo makes picking out some of the more interesting details about the SVT rather easy. Starting from the front, there is the big hood scoop to feed cold air to its still mysterious engine. You can also immediately make out the model's new grille and lower front air dam. It has a vertical piece running from the bottom of the hood all the way to the ground. The aggressive styling almost gives the 'Stang the look of two fangs ready to bite down. The hood seam is even taped off here, which shows us its outline.
Around the side, it appears that the front and rear fenders are wider than stock, and the sills are certainly much larger. You can also just make out the SVT's bigger brakes behind its black wheels with a polished lip. Finally, at the rear, things appear mostly stock other than the diffuser that the exhaust outlets nestle into.

Project Ugly Horse: Part VIII

Now With More EcoBoost
There's an EcoBoost 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in there somewhere, and it's headed straight for Ugly Horse.
For the second time in my life, I'm staring at an engine in the back of a truck with no concept of how to get it safely into the garage by my lonesome. The first time this happened, I dragged home a $300 International 345 V8 in the back of my Scout Terra only to discover that the bounds of my manliness terminated well before my ability to muscle that 800-pound cast iron block out of the pickup bed.

2015 Ford F-150 shaves 700 pounds, adds 2.7-liter EcoBoost [w/video]

Mon, 13 Jan 2014

The Ford F-150 is one of the best selling vehicles on the planet. Considering that, one can imagine that when it comes time for a redesign, there are hardly any half measures. For its lucky thirteenth generation, Ford has gone all-in on the single most important vehicle in its portfolio, redesigning it from the ground up.
The big news is the F-150's new, lightweight, Atlas-inspired body. Ninety-three percent of that new body is made from a sort of aluminum alloy not unlike what the US military uses in its M2 Bradley fighting vehicles and Humvees, and it accounts for up to 70 percent of the F-150's 700-pound weight reduction. As a side benefit, the aluminum body should prove more resistant to dents and dings. Built Ford tough, indeed.
If you're wondering where the other 30 percent of that 700-pound weight loss went, 8.5 percent (60 pounds) came from the increased use of high-strength steel (up from 23 percent to 77 percent) in its ladder-box frame. Ford claims this steel is comparable to some of the heavy duty pickups used by its competitors, with a PSI rating of 70,000.
