1956 Ford Crown Victoria
Frame-off Restoration Project
No Reserve Auction 

This is a 1956 Ford Crown Victoria. This auction includes the running drive train, body, and remainder of pieces to complete the project. There is a new front and rear windshield, set of wire-wheel style hub caps/centerpieces, and interior kit. The 312 engine was rebuilt, brake system rebuilt, suspension rebuilt, and is mechanically sound. There are too many parts to list, but I have tried to capture as much as possible with photos. I have many other additional photos upon request. 

The body was just set on the frame on 3/28/13 to make transportation easy for buyer.

More details: This is the beginning of a frame off restoration. The engine (V8, 312") was completely rebuilt (I have a recent start-up video available on request), and has been stored in a garage for the past 15+ years. The chrome parts were re-finished in 1992 and are in good condition. Body appears in good shape, but there are several relatively small defects in the floor (see photos). Title, which I believe is original, is included with the sale along with new matching VIN plate.

This was my father's car which I inherited, and I am not as knowledgable about details as he would have been. It is my understanding that all parts (except the two front seat cushions) are present to complete this vehicle. I am selling this vehicle as-is: what you see is what you get and I do not take responsibility for any missing components. Prospective buyers are more than welcome to see in person. Please let me know if you would like any additional photos.

$1000 Non-refundable deposit due at auction end. Buyer is responsible for pickup/transportation, but I am more than willing to help you load the vehicle. Call me with questions, my name is Tom.

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.

Ex-GM VP LaNeve takes over Lincoln ad agency

Wed, 10 Apr 2013 18:32:00 EST

Those of you that caught yesterday's op-ed about Lincoln will have heard already, but Mark LaNeve has taken the helm at Team Detroit. Once the North American vice president of sales, service and marketing for General Motors, LaNeve will now head up the agency that handles all of Ford advertising. LaNeve will also run the account for Lincoln. While at GM from 2001 to 2009, the exec oversaw ad campaigns like Cadillac's Breakthrough and sales initiatives like "Employee Pricing for Everyone."
He left in 2009 to join Allstate as chief marketing officer, oversaw the creation of the Mayhem ad spots and was moved into the role of VP of agency operations overseeing Allstate's 10,000 agents. He resigned from the insurer in February 2012 for personal reasons and joined Team Detroit in August 2012 as chief operating officer, in charge of satellite offices in New York and internationally. He replaces ex-CEO Cameron McNaughton, and will continue to hold the title of COO.
Lincoln is trying to get its 2013 back to rights after putting big dollar commercials for the 2013 MKZ on television then having production glitches preventing cars from getting to dealerships. With rumors of a relaunch in the works, it's no surprise LaNeve has been given the reins - and from here it looks like the brand is desperate for the kind of magic he's proved he can marshal. Perhaps he can start by calling a mulligan on the renaming exercise that gave us the hoary "Lincoln Motor Company" and go back to oh, say, "Lincoln." Then he can ask the product folks to get to work on the MKC concept...

Ford announces four recalls, 1.4M vehicles affected

Thu, 29 May 2014 15:58:00 EST

Ford is taking a bit of the spotlight away from General Motors, announcing a major group of recall campaigns, covering a total of 1.4 million vehicles built between 2006 and 2013.
Let's start with the big one, which covers the Ford Escape, Mercury Mariner and, according to The Detroit News, Ford-built Mazda Tribute CUVs. 915,216 vehicles are covered, all of which were built in model years 2008 to 2011. 736,000 vehicles are in the US, while Canada then Mexico make up the vast majority of the remainder. The problem is due to an issue with the torque sensor in the steering column, which could lead to sudden power steering failure. Manual steering would still be available, though.
"Dealers will perform one of three service fixes, depending upon what diagnostic codes are shown when the vehicle is taken to the dealer," Ford spokeswoman Kelli Felker wrote to Autoblog in an email. "They will either update software for the power steering control module and the instrument cluster module; replace the torque sensor; or replace the steering column, which includes upgraded power steering control module software."
