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.

Consumer Reports says these are the worst new cars of 2014

Thu, 27 Feb 2014 13:00:00 EST

Consumer Reports has announced its annual list of worst vehicles, a cringe-inducing contrast to its list of top vehicles. Ignominiously leading the way in 2014 is Chrysler, which has a staggering seven models listed.
Jeep nearly sweeps the small SUV segment by itself, with its Compass, Patriot and 2.4-liter version of the new Cherokee, while the only midsize sedans listed by CR were the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger. The new Dodge Dart and the Dodge Journey round out CR's condemnation of Chrysler.
Ford is taking heat as well, with the Taurus, Edge and their counterparts from Lincoln all listed as the worst vehicles in their respective segments. Toyota doesn't fare much better, with its Lexus IS, Scion iQ and tC also making the list.

Jay Leno is far beyond driven in his 1971 Pantera

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 19:58:00 EST

Perhaps it's fitting that the band Pantera is known for its heavy metal music, because the DeTomaso Pantera is the automotive equivalent of a metal album. It's short, aggressive and makes a mean sound. It doesn't mess around either, with a Ford 351-cubic-inch (5.75-liter) V8 sending mountains of torque to the rear wheels. This week, Jay Leno takes us on a detailed tour of his '71 to show why it rocks.
There's a regular format to Jay Leno's Garage. It starts with Jay and maybe a guest taking a look at the car and talking about its history, and then they take it out on the open road. However, this video is practically a Pantera buyer's guide. Jay is adamant from the start that the last thing anyone should own is a stock example. To remedy this, he and his guest, the editor of the Pantera Club magazine, take viewers to school about some of the ways to turn them into even better performance machines.
No matter what you do to it, though, the Pantera requires that the driver adapt to it, not the other way around. For example, Jay isn't a big guy by most standards, but he has to cram himself into the cockpit with his shoes off and shirt partially unbuttoned just to go for a drive. Still, once out on the road, it all makes sense with that rumbling V8 and those Italian supercar looks. Scroll down to watch and learn a lot more about this uncompromising '70s performance car.

Ford announces 2014 F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition

Tue, 09 Apr 2013 18:00:00 EST

Ford has pulled the wraps off its anticipated 2014 F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition model, a new variant of the popular street-legal off-road specialist. In a nutshell, the "special" is all cosmetic - there are no mechanical upgrades to the truck and its 6.2-liter V8 (411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque), Torsen limited-slip differential, beadlock-capable wheels and internal triple-bypass FOX Racing Shox dampers all remain untouched.
The SVT Raptor Special Edition, which adds cosmetic enhancements to the existing Luxury Package, will be offered in Ruby Red Metallic and Tuxedo Black Metallic with box-side graphics. The interior upgrades include Brick Red seat bolsters (with black inserts), cloth honeycomb highlights and a console top finish panel.
As of now, Ford has only release a couple pictures of the Special Edition model. But check back later, as we will update the gallery when additional high-res images are released later today, and be sure to peruse the press release below for all the details.
