ou are looking at a customized 1962 Ford Thunderbird that has been transformed into a sweet pro touring car. This car was built to be a driver, it gets a ton of attention at the cruises. The rear wheel-wells were radiused and the trim was removed from the rear quarters, making this Thunderbird look more sleek and smooth than how it rolled off the assembly in 1962. 

Vehicle Specifications:
1962 Ford Thunderbird 
10,500 miles 
Automatic 8 cylinder 460 
Red leather interior 
Power windows 
Clean title 
Custom aftermarket rims 

Drivetrain modifications include:
460 engine

Edelbrock carburetor 
Edelbrock performance intake 
New aluminum radiator with electric fan 
C6 transmission 
New Driveshaft and U-joints 
4 wheel disc breaks 
New front wheel bearings and seals 
Upgraded master cylinder and booster 
New rag joints 
New power steering pump 
New battery 
New starter 
American Racing wheels, 17 x 7 front, 20 x 8.5 rear 
Hankook Ventus V12 EVO Tires, 225-45-17 front, 245-40-20 rear
Rebuilt 3.50 Ford 9" rear 
New rear wheel bearings and axle seals 

*All of this work has been done in the past six months; all these items are new, not new three years ago 

In a prior build someone built this into a hot rod and installed a fuel cell in the trunk. A brand new gas tank, filler neck, straps, and sending until will need to be installed by the new owner. Fuel gauge is not currently connected; it will work when connected to the new sending unit. 

There in no rust on the Thunderbird at all. The only imperfection on the body is a very small blister on the front passenger side of the hood. The chrome is in great shape. The vent windows have the usual pitting and there are some minor dings on some of the trim. The vehicle also includes a new set of window felts that will need to be installed by the new owner. The interior is in nice shape, the seats and headliner were redone, the door panels need attention (door arm rest specifically started to crack). Overall, this is a nice straight car with no excuses. 

I am not looking for any trades.

Ford shows off V8-powered Ranger headed to Dakar Rally

Tue, 30 Jul 2013

Avert your eyes now if you're jealous that the global version of the Ford Ranger is not offered in the US. Ford's midsize pickup is being tuned up to take on the 2014 Dakar Rally, and the result is a truck that is probably even cooler than any F-150 SVT Raptor we've ever seen in the States. Ford is actually building two versions of the truck for Dakar, which will run from January 5 through January 18, covering more than 5,000 miles from Argentina to Chile.
Starting with a fully composite body and a 5.0-liter V8 plucked from a Mustang, nearly every aspect of the trucks have been purpose built to take on the grueling race. This includes things like the six-speed sequential gearbox, liquid-cooled rear brakes and the 132-gallon fuel tank. As proof that Dakar is more about endurance than speed, the engines used in these race trucks will be limited to around 350 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque, and will max out at a top speed of just 105 miles per hour. Scroll down for Ford's official press release offering more information about the trucks and teams being prepped for Dakar.

Shelby to auction 2012 GT350 No. 1 in Vegas

Thu, 19 Sep 2013

With Shelby preparing to wind down production of its brutal GT350, a 624-horsepower Mustang that's meant to go up against the Roush Stage 3 in the world of tuned Ford ponycars, the Las Vegas-based tuner is looking to give back to one lucky customer. It'll auction off the very first GT350 ever produced, at the 2013 Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas, a three-day event that runs from September 26 through September 28.
The GT350 is a monster, with a 5.0-liter, supercharged V8 that's been tuned well past 600 horsepower in a time when Ford's own Shelby-branded GT500 barely reached 550 horsepower. The GT350 is much louder than Ford's effort, too, both visually and audibly. The wide body look isn't what we'd call conventional, but on a car that sounds and goes like this, something extreme is needed. According to Shelby American's vice president of production, Gary Davis, "Carroll was very excited about the new wide body option, so that was included on this car. It's the first 2012 GT350 serial number from our anniversary year. It is a very special car." Wilwood brakes, a massaged suspension, and some very fat, sticky tires add to the Shelby experience.
This particular GT350 will be lot number 750, and will cross the Barrett-Jackson stage on Sunday, September 28.

Hear the 2015 Mustang GT V8 roar for the first time

Wed, 26 Jun 2013

Our combined knowledge of the 2015 Ford Mustang continues to deepen, as spy shooters have begun to compile video and audio of the upcoming sixth-generation car.
Case in point is this latest series of video clips, which not only gives us a great vantage point of the Mustang in motion, but also allows us to hear the Ford V8 engine and exhaust. After perusing the aural delights of this short video, which, admittedly, doesn't catch the Mustang GT at full song, we can at least say that the throaty exhaust isn't disappointing.
Chances are good that the 2015 Mustang GT will debut with some version of the current (and excellent) Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine, though we're unclear as to whether or not the motor has been massaged for its next-gen debut, or what may have been done to exhaust plumbing. At this point, we're just happy to hear the pony run. Scroll below to hear for yourself.
