Rebuilt in 2006 many features of the original truck kept and rebuilt, from the original V-8 motor to the 4-speed transmission, to the single wiper, 6-volt wiring harness, the oil bath breather and overall 50 vintage style. Many new and original items were updated from the polished grill, to a full oak deck and stakes, to the seat covering and cab liner, as well as a rebuilt radio and heater (not installed), as the original truck came without them. Smaller upgrades were made by chrome plating of the stake bed, its rails, and hardware, steering column gear shift and bumpers, to adding wooden running boards, mud flaps, and a bright Goldenrod yellow paint job. For a semi-modern look the front end was combined into a one piece clip, west coast mirrors and BGF radials mounted on chrome rims were also added. Every part of this truck has been gone through with a close attention to detail and keeping the truck as not only a great Sunday driver, but show truck as well. Since it’s rebuilt and when not driven, it is covered and garaged out of the weather. There is some wear due to age and the restoration is 9 years old. The sale comes with additional parts and pieces to maintain this sweet little ride, including a radio, heater core, gauges and all steel running boards. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Ken Block walks you through his new 'Hoonigan Racing' HQTue, 24 Jun 2014
Ken Block seems like one hell of a nice guy. I ran into him at CES this past January, and he dropped the video games he was playing to chat with me for a while. His crew also recently gave our Steve Ewing a tour of the offices you're about to see on this video. Good guy to know.
As it turns out, they're some fairly cool new digs. Dubbed 'Hoonigan Racing Division HQ,' the office is open to Ford Focus ST and Fiesta ST owners who attend the driving program offered out at Miller Motorsports Park. The very same program that Ewing reported on just recently.
Or, if you've no plans to buy an ST or travel to Utah any time soon, you can let Block show you around himself in this MTV Cribs-style video. With interior decorating that relies heavily on shipping containers and luxurious amenities like a ping pong table, 10 refrigerators and a bear(?), there's no lack of eye-candy in the driverly HQ. (Judging by Block's outfit, you'll probably not go thirsty if you're a Monster drinker, either.) Take the tour along with the Gymkhana master, below.
GM readying aluminum-body fullsize pickupsWed, 19 Feb 2014
Ford's extensive use of aluminum in its 2015 F-150 is a big deal. A really big deal. Big enough, in fact, that General Motors is reportedly changing its fullsize pickup strategy. According to The Wall Street Journal, The General has locked in partnerships with Alcoa Inc. and Novelis Inc. - companies that will supply aluminum for the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks.
"Ford's introduction of the 2015 F-150 pickup truck was a game changer, and it's the first, not the last, conversion of this type," Novelis spokesperson Charles Belbin told the Journal. The switch to aluminum has allowed Ford to shave roughly 700 pounds off its fullsize truck's curb weight. And while official mileage ratings have not been announced, the weight loss should go a long way for improving efficiency, especially when combined other efficiency-minded improvements including better aerodynamics and new, turbocharged V6 engines.
Of course, aluminum-bodied cars are nothing new. But extensive use of aluminum in a major, best-selling product like the Ford F-150 is expected to kick off widespread use of this weight-saving material as availability rises and cost decreases. The WSJ reports that GM had originally explored the idea of moving to aluminum pickups back in 2008, but abandoned the idea due to cost concerns amid economic woes.
White House clears way for NHTSA to mandate vehicle black boxesFri, 07 Dec 2012
At present, over 90 percent of all new vehicles sold in the United States today are equipped with event data recorders, more commonly known as black boxes. If the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gets its way, that already high figure will swell to a full 100 percent in short order.
Such automotive black boxes have been in existence since the 1990s, and all current Ford, General Motors, Mazda and Toyota vehicles are so equipped. NHTSA has been attempting to make these data recorders mandatory for automakers, and according to The Detroit News, the White House Office of Management Budget has just finished reviewing the proposal, clearing the way. Now NHTSA is expected to draft new legislation to make the boxes a requirement.
One problem with current black boxes is that there's no set of standards for automakers to follow when creating what bits of data are recorded, and for how long or in what format it is stored. In other words, one automaker's box is probably not compatible with its competitors.
