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 ST Octane Academy [w/video]

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 11:59:00 EST



The ST school is about more than just handbrake turns, hot laps, and sliding into parking spaces.
I felt like such a rock star. On my second pass around the UrbanCross course (read: fancy autocross) at the Ford ST Octane Academy, I absolutely nailed the exit, sliding the bright-yellow Focus ST sideways into a box the size of a parking space, all four wheels in line.

Ford Police Interceptors win acceleration war against Dodge, Chevy

Thu, 17 Oct 2013 00:01:00 EST

Just last month, Ford announced its first-ever non-pursuit-rated version of the Police Interceptor sedan for agencies looking to maximize fuel economy, but that doesn't mean that Ford is giving up on chasing down the bad guys. While the Dodge Charger can lay claim to the fastest lap time at the Grattan Raceway test facility held by the Michigan State Police, the results are now in for the Police Vehicle Evaluation acceleration tests. And Ford's Police Interceptor duo (sedan and utility) came out on top.
In the acceleration tests, Ford says that the Taurus-based PI Sedan with the newly available 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 was the quickest among prospective police cars in both 0-60 and 0-100 mile per hour times. The sedan posted a 0-60 time of 5.66 seconds with all-wheel drive and 5.71 seconds with front-wheel drive, besting V8-powered competitors like the Chevy Caprice and Dodge Charger by more than 0.3 seconds. These rivals close the gap on the AWD sedan in the 0-100 test with the Ford taking 13.5 seconds compared to the Chevy's time of 14.35 and the Dodge's time of 14.7.
As for utility vehicles, the Explorer-based PI Utility, which accounts for 60 percent of Ford's police vehicle sales, essentially went head-to-head with the V8-powered Chevy Tahoe with similar results. Equipped with the new EcoBoost engine option, this big SUV hit 60 mph in just 6.28 seconds and 100 mph in 15.51 seconds compared to times of 8.22 seconds and 21.95 seconds, respectively, for the Tahoe. Other important tests in the PVE include braking and top speed, but while no automakers have stepped up to boast about their numbers in either of these categories, Ford's images show that the V8 Caprice had the highest top speed of the cars at 155 mph while the Tahoe's 139-mph speed made it the fastest utility vehicle.

Oprah at it again, gives car away on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Sat, 17 Aug 2013 20:01:00 EST

Oprah Winfrey loves giving away cars. Not only has she given Pontiac G6 sedans and Volkswagen Beetle retro-mobiles to everyone in the audience of her past show, but the other night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! she gave another car away to one lucky audience member, while yelling her now-famous line: "You get a car!"
Although the acting of Oprah and Jimmy Kimmel was obviously staged for this giveaway, the reaction from the woman in the audience was genuine shock as she found out that she had just won a new Ford Fusion Energi. Congrats!
Not to take away from what Oprah and Jimmy pulled off, but our cynical sides have to wonder if there isn't more than just a little coincidence that this giveaway took place on the same day that Ford announced a fuel economy reduction for the C-Max hybrid. You be the judge... Scroll down to watch the short clip from the episode.
