What it is: 1960 Ford Falcon Ranchero. Not too many of them made in 1960, and even fewer of them still around. I haven't seen another one of them of this year in Maryland at all, and I doubt that you'll see another one of this year any time soon.
Runs great, stops as it should, drives straight. 144ci original engine, original C3 transmission with manual 3 speed on the column. Newly replaced carpet, new custom made door panels, new kick panels. Interior firewall, floor, and cab rear has been completely sound deadened. Rear end has air adjustable shocks (in case you actually want to put anything in the bed of the truck (car). Bed has been sanded down and mildly coated. Gaps between the cab and bed have been coated, and all those pesky little hidden drain holes have been located and flushed so that water doesn't just sit inside the frame rails (common complaint with Falcon wagon / ranchero owners).
Engine bay has been gone through cleaned up, and sealed up. All new fluids (oil, brake, radiator), new plugs, new wires, new coil. The engine runs pretty strong for a 144, but could use a timing job. Not absolutely necessary, but it's a straight 6, and if you don't like the "lope", you'll have to re-time it. 

This is a driver...not a pristine show car. Everything on the car works as it should, but not everything looks immaculate. It's an honest little runner that gets a lot of looks wherever it goes. It presents well in it's current color scheme, with the custom pin striping on the rear, blacked out front...hood...roof...bed...tail gate...bumpers...and gets quite a few second glances, but it could use some polishing compound or a good once over with a talented wet sander if you want that color to stand out.

As with every other car that's over 50 years old and is still actually on the road, if you want to make this into an absolute show car, it's going to need some tweaks here or there, but it's a fun little car (truck) to tool around in, and you'll love owning it. No major rot to be concerned with, and won't need any serious body, frame, or replacement panel work. Comes with some new parts as well. New front turn signal lenses, replacement signal buckets, turn signal switch, signal switch stalk, lots of vinyl material (same that was used to cover the kick panels and door panels), NOS fan blade, and whatever else I can find laying around that was ordered or picked up for the car. The Buy It Now price is pretty reasonable, but of course if you would like to take a chance with the auction, you're more than welcome.

This vehicle is for sale locally as well, and I reserve the right to end the auction early if a local sale is completed.

IIHS says these are the safest cars of 2013

Wed, 02 Jan 2013

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has revealed its annual list of Top Safety Picks, an award that highlights automobiles it says offer "superior crash protection." A new and still more significant award, the Top Safety Pick+ honor, is given to those vehicles that earn good ratings for occupant protection in four out of five areas of measure. And while some 117 vehicles were given the TSP seal of approval for 2013, just 13 passed muster for TSP+.
To be fair, IIHS only evaluated 29 vehicles with its new testing procedures for TSP+ (we'd expect that the number of qualified cars will rise substantially for 2014). Luxury and Near Luxury midsize cars were the first groups evaluated, followed by midsizers in the Moderately Priced Cars category - unsurprisingly, it's only midsize cars that you'll find among the class this year.
Only two luxury sedans made the list of 13 for 2013: the Acura TL and Volvo S60. The other 11 cars on the list included entries from domestic, Japanese and German car makers: Dodge Avenger, Chrysler 200, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord (sedan and coupe), Kia Optima (but not its close kin, the Hyundai Sonata, strangely), Nissan Altima, Subaru Legacy and Outback, Suzuki Kizashi and the Volkswagen Passat all made the grade.

Ford reveals EcoBoost-powered Riley prototype for Daytona 24

Tue, 01 Oct 2013

It's not the first time Ford has participated in the Daytona Prototype class as an engine supplier, but in revealing this new EcoBoost V6-powered Riley Technologies prototype for the new United SportsCar Championship, Ford is making a statement: "We want to show Ford EcoBoost's capabilities as an engine that provides both performance and fuel economy, on and off the track," says Jamie Allison, director of Ford Racing.
In addition to supplying the 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6, Ford had its production designer Garen Nicoghosian give the racecar brand-inspired design cues with support from Ford Racing chief aerodynamicist Bernie Marcus.
The car is scheduled to compete at next year's Rolex 24 at Daytona on January 25-26, but before that, Michael Shank Racing is working with Ford at another goal. Driving his Ford Thunderbird, NASCAR champion Bill Elliott set the track's top speed record at 210.364 miles per hour during a qualifying run for the Daytona 500 - way back in 1987 -- and Ford thinks it's about time for that record to fall. What better time the introduction of this new Ford-powered Daytona Prototype? Michael Shank Racing plans to use the twin-turbo V6-powered racer to beat Elliott's record, and it expects to begin prepping for the top-speed run on October 9.

More evidence GT500-replacement will be named GT350

Tue, 17 Dec 2013

During the recent unveiling of the 2015 Ford Mustang, we saw the car in both V6 and GT form, but we'll have to wait a little bit longer to see the successor to the Shelby GT500. In the meantime, though, it looks like has confirmed reports that this high-performance model will bring the Shelby GT350 name back to Ford.
According to the forum post, a user found the Shelby GT350 name on a Ford promo website listing its 2015 lineup. The Shelby GT350 name was first used on a Mustang back in 1965, and most recently it has been a model created for customers as a post-title purchase by Shelby American. As for that car, Shelby confirmed earlier in the year that its GT350 would be phased out at the end of this month.
The million-dollar question for Mustang and Shelby enthusiasts is when we'll see next factory Shelby GT350. Last we heard it was planned for a debut at the New York Auto Show. We've included our previous spy shots of this hi-po, sixth-gen Mustang, and we've also captured it on spy video showing off its exhaust note.
