1973 Ford Bronco Explorer. This Bronco has its original paint and CA license plates with the original white  seats which are in good condition with no rips or tears.

The original engine (302) and automatic transmission (C-4) were recently rebuilt by the previous owner and I have put on less than 4000 miles since purchasing it.

 A new aluminum intake manifold.

A new carburetor , Headers and exhaust system were installed at the time of the rebuild.

A new electronic ignition system.

It has new front disk power brake pads installed about 3 months ago on a conversion kit put in by previous owner. The passenger and driver floor pans were replaced by the previous owner. It currently has  aftermarket bumpers to accommodate a winch ( not included) and a spare tire ( not included).

 I will include the original chrome front and rear bumpers (which are not pictured and are in excellent condition).

 It has its original Dana 44 front end and stock rear end and it has about a 2-3 inch lift.

 It has a new high output power steering pump and the box is in excellent condition.

It had new tires (31X10.50) and aluminum wheels put on when I purchased it About 4000 miles ago.

 It also had new rubber seals installed around the driver and passenger doors.

It has the stock 12 gal rear fuel tank and an 8 gal side tank.

 I have owned this vehicle for 2 years. I had the top off and stored it and the vehicle in my garage during the winter. I never drove it in the rain. I was going to finish restoring it but just don't have the interest any more. It is a great daily driver. It runs great with no issues.

 It has minimal rust and most of its original parts. There are a couple of small dents the largest on the front left fender which I have included as a close-up in my pictures.

I am not the original owner and I bought it in Lodi CA  from a private party who said they were the third owner.

I have tried to photograph all of the rust, dents/scratches and area's of concern to give everyone a clear idea of the condition of this vehicle. 

I spent a year searching northern CA for one of these when I was in the market and this was the cleanest one in my price range that I came across in that time frame.

It drives and brakes straight and with the top on is very quiet inside which tells me it is a solid and well maintained vehicle. 

I am not interested in shipping which means  it is the responsibility of the Buyer to pick up or arrange for shipping to be completed  within 1 week of completing the transaction. I am only accepting pay pal or cash as payment in person only. If you purchase this vehicle you must contact me within 48 hours of doing so to make arrangements for pick up and the transfer of the title. I have the title and it is clear and current. This vehicle is being sold AS IS without any kind of warranty or guarantee. Please ask questions and I will do all I can to give you complete and correct information.

I am only accepting cash or US cashiers check. VEHICLE WILL NOT BE RELEASED UNTIL FINAL PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE WHICH MEANS IF YOU ARE PAYING WITH A CHECK THAT THE CHECK HAS BEEN RECEIVED, DEPOSITED, AND CLEARED MY ACCOUNT.

These are great investments and this one is a very popular color combination.

 You are welcome to inspect the vehicle and I would encourage you to do so. Rick (916) 224-3199 if you have any questions.

Ford builds USAF Thunderbirds Edition Mustang for charity

Tue, 02 Jul 2013 13:29:00 EST

Each year since 2008, Ford has created a one-off Mustang to celebrate military aviation, and the cars have been auctioned off at the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Gathering of Eagles charity event to raise money to inspire the next generation of aviators. This year's charity car is the 2014 Ford Mustang GT US Air Force Thunderbirds Edition, which also helps celebrate 60 years of Thunderbirds air show excellence.
Of all the EAA charity cars, this Thunderbirds Edition is the most in depth. Painted to match the F-16 Tomcat fighter jets used by Thunderbirds, this Mustang also gets a widebody kit and 22-inch Forgiato wheels to go with the cockpit's Recaro bucket seats, rear-seat delete and modified navigation screen and gauge cluster. Even the Mustang's projector puddle lights have been changed to show an aircraft silhouette - rather than the Mustang's galloping horse logo - when the doors are open.
Themes for previous EAA charity cars include the Blue Angels, SR-71 Blackbird and the Red Tails as well as the F-22 Raptor-inspired AV8R and AV-X10 "Dearborn Doll" models. Scroll down for the press release for the 2014 Ford Mustang GT US Air Force Thunderbirds Edition, and be sure to check out our galleries for all six aviation-themed Mustangs.

Nuclear-powered concept cars from the Atomic Age

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 12:31:00 EST

In the 1950s and early 60s, the dawn of nuclear power was supposed to lead to a limitless consumer culture, a world of flying cars and autonomous kitchens all powered by clean energy. In Europe, it offered the then-limping continent a cheap, inexhaustible supply of power after years of rationing and infrastructure damage brought on by two World Wars.
The development of nuclear-powered submarines and ships during the 1940s and 50s led car designers to begin conceptualizing atomic vehicles. Fueled by a consistent reaction, these cars would theoretically produce no harmful byproducts and rarely need to refuel. Combining these vehicles with the new interstate system presented amazing potential for American mobility.
But the fantasy soon faded. There were just too many problems with the realities of nuclear power. For starters, the powerplant would be too small to attain a reaction unless the car contained weapons-grade atomic materials. Doing so would mean every fender-bender could result in a minor nuclear holocaust. Additionally, many of the designers assumed a lightweight shielding material or even forcefields would eventually be invented (they still haven't) to protect passengers from harmful radiation. Analyses of the atomic car concept at the time determined that a 50-ton lead barrier would be necessary to prevent exposure.

RWD Lincolns are coming, fate depends partly on MKZ success

Tue, 04 Dec 2012 11:01:00 EST

The product portfolio at Lincoln may seem a bit sparse at the moment, but if a report is to be believed, new products are on the way. TheDetroitBureau.com spoke with sources at Lincoln and Ford, who claimed the American premium brand is working on, perhaps more than one, rear-wheel-drive vehicle.
Lincoln would likely platform-share with the next-generation Ford Mustang to develop those RWD offerings in the early going. Moving forward, the report indicates that Lincoln could take the lead on other rear-drive projects in the future. As the RWD architecture continues to take shape, "most or all" of the front-wheel-drive portfolio will also be offered with all-wheel drive as an option, ala Audi.
But wait, there's more! The report also suggests that a replacement for the full-size MKS is on the way, as well as a new Navigator and a luxury crossover based on the current Ford Escape.
