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.

Aussie Ford Falcon GT shows its rear end to Lamborghini Gallardo

Sun, 27 Apr 2014 15:01:00 EST

When Ford Australia announces, as it did recently, that it wants to celebrate the end of its Ford Performance Vehicle division with a Falcon FPV GT-F that celebrates big-bore origins of the nameplate, it's talking about the kind of car in this video.
At some point the classic Falcon GT - said to be an XY series - was invited to a test of acceleration against a Lamborghini Gallardo. At the very least, the Falcon GT had a 351 cubic-inch motor and 300 horsepower, but whatever this guy's got under the hood of his yellow sedan makes has him so confident that he doesn't even move his elbow from its resting place on the door.
You'll find a reminder of Ford Australia's heyday, a raucous exhaust note and some NSFW language in the short video below.

Ford Mustang returning to Australia in 2016

Mon, 15 Jul 2013 11:33:00 EST

Australia's Herald Sun newspaper has reported that the next-generation Ford Mustang is heading Down Under in 2016, just as Ford is hanging the "Closed for Good" sign on its Australian manufacturing operations and sending the Falcon to its grave. Ford hasn't offered any official word on the matter, but the paper says that Ford's global VP of sales and marketing, Jim Farley, is flying to Australia to make the announcement himself.
While Ford converted Mustangs in the early 2000s from left-hand to right-hand drive for the Australian market and then sold them at high prices, it's been almost five decades since Ford imported a dedicated right-hand-drive Mustang to Oz. The arrival of the global model specifically made for places like Australia and the UK means Ford will also be able to offer them at better prices than the converted models; the Herald Sun says the price is expected to be "close to $50,000."
And that's for one of the "V8 performance models," which are the only ones Australia will get; Ford apparently won't send the turbocharged four cylinder or the V6. The Aussies could find out in a month from now whether this rumor is true. We will all find out what this Mustang fuss is about when the car debuts at next year's New York Auto Show.

EU formally questions French government assistance of Peugeot's finance arm

Fri, 28 Dec 2012 07:57:00 EST

Recently, the finance arm of PSA/Peugeot-Citroën was in such debt trouble that it was pricing itself out of the car loan market. The rates it was paying to service its debt, which was rated one step above junk, were so high that it was forced to charge car-buying customers higher rates than they could find elsewhere. This was adding to Peugeot's already impressive woes by sending revenue out the door to competitors.
Two months ago a deal was worked out with the French government whereby the state would provide 7 billion euro ($9 billion USD) in bonds to guarantee the finance arm's loans. The French government could nominate someone to join the Peugeot board, Peugeot would guarantee more French jobs, and on top of that deal, other banks would provide non-guaranteed loans. The government would take no equity stake in the car company.
Although not yet finalized, the arrangement is meant to create some breathing room for Peugeot Finance to lower its interest rates for customers, and a government-nominated board member, Louis Gallois, was recently named to Peugeot's supervisory board. The arrangement was also openly questioned by at least three competitors: Ford, Renault - which is 15-percent owned by the French government after it received state aid - and the German state of Lower Saxony, itself a 15-percent shareholder in Volkswagen.
