These are your typical used Broncos with the usual defects--selling as is--the 1966 (the one in red primer) could be restored as the body is in fairly good shape--the 1970 (the light yellow one) could be restored but it would be from ground up--the 1972 (chassis only) has a 302 engine that ran good back five or six years ago--the body was in bad shape .(rusted) so I removed it thinking I would put the engine and drive train in the 1966 body but I just don't have the time or place for all the work--I do not have the title to the 66 but do have titles for the 70 &72--I also have a few extra parts that would go with them. I also researched the VIN numbers on all three Broncos to make sure that they are correct model years. All in all these Broncos would most likely be used for parts but with the right work could be restored--I am just getting to old and wore out to do this type of work anymore and just want to sell them to someone who will do something with them--I don't want to be one of those persons who say --Well now I am going to get around to a fixing them one of these days and ten years later their still setting in the same place only in a lot worse shape (LOL)
Last month Ford's Jim Farley made waves at the CES when it was reported he told show attendees, "We have GPS in your car, so we know what you're doing. By the way, we don't supply that data to anyone." Farley and Ford later partially retracted and clarified that statement.
Spurred by a desire for further transparency on data collection policies, Ford representatives answered questions from Congress, specifically Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.), about driver privacy.
The Detroit News reports that Ford told Congress it does collect some vehicle location data in an effort to "troubleshoot and improve our products" on behalf of the driver. Ford went on to say that it only collects limited data after receiving permission from owners.

A few more Ford trucks will be built in the US in the near future with news that production of the F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks will move from Mexico to Ford's Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake, OH. Ford hasn't confirmed a precise timeline for the move, but The Detroit News claims the Blue Oval will make the shift later this year or in early 2015.
As Ford spokesperson Mike Levine reminded us, back in 2011, Ford announced in an investor release that it would shift production "after the [Ohio] plant stops current production of the Ford E-Series vans." According to that release, the Ohio factory will also receive $128 million in upgrades to build the new trucks, plus the F53 motorhome chassis and F59 commercial chassis.
Autocar has some sour news for fans of go-fast Ford products. According to Roelant de Waard, Ford's president of marketing in Europe, the automaker will probably never offer more than one RS performance model for sale at the same time. That statement runs contrary earlier rumblings that suggested Ford would launch its next-generation Focus RS in 2015 and follow the hatch with a spate of other vehicles with an RS badge. But de Waard has made it clear that Ford of Europe is now focused on squarely on the next Mustang, even though there may be more RS models on the way eventually.
"What is clear is that the RS shouldn't be a series, or a car badge that we have in our portfolio all the time. It is an extreme car - something more than ST," he said.
That philosophy makes plenty of sense. We loved the old Focus RS - shown above in RS500 trim - because it was generally bonkers and plenty exclusive. Diluting either aspect is sure to end in disappointment for everyone involved.
