New FORD hubcaps and an extra.
Locking GAS cap.
2 sets of keys.

7.3 IDI Diesel has a great reputation of going forever. I have run it unloaded, and also totally full of furniture while pulling a 21 foot trailer and it always gets the same 10-11 MPG.  Will cruise at 80 on flat land.  Driving it cross country on the highway is like a boat on a calm lake!

I registered it as an RV in California and it is only $84 per year for tags!!!!!!!! As a commercial vehicle it was almost $500.  NO SMOG-1998 and older diesels do not require SMOG check.

Located in Rosamond, CA 75 minutes from Burbank.  If you want to fly into LAX or Burbank airport to drive it home I will pick you up at the airport.

Pay my BUY IT NOW price and I'll throw in:
 windshield mounted GARMIN GPS already installed,
 40 gallon new FORD diesel fuel tank I was going to mount in place of the spare tire for a 2nd tank,
 400Watt small Microwave that just needs the door handle glued into place(hard to find a microwave less than 700Watts).
 Powered cooler that plugs into the lighter that can hold about 12+ cans.
 Battery Tender brand trickle charger that automatically keeps batteries charged that is hard wired already.
 Set of sheets for the bed.
 Oil and filter for your next oil change.

I never thought I would sell it, I spared no expense on maintenance keeping it up until this Fall.  My idea was to add a few things to it to make it more of an expedition vehicle:
crank out awning.
2nd gas tank to go further between fill ups or make it a WVO tank and convert it to run both.
15 gallon water tank with 12V pump for out door showers.
mount spare on rear door with bike rack.
Put a generator box on the back door.
install Solar panels on roof and add 3 house batteries to run electric.
CHECK OUT the site for doing all these off-road camper builds at expeditionportal do tc om.



THE BAD:
AC does not blow cold, probably a leak.  I had it repaired 3.5 years ago and it worked great until this August.  Did not get an estimate.
Power steering pump whines a little when you turn the wheel too fast.
Oil pan is probably leaking as it appears wet on pan and in the area.  It does not drip oil much, maybe one drop each time I park it.  It does not burn or use any noticeable amount of oil.
I will remove magnets and easy to remove vinyl decals but it is your responsibility to remove all of the remaining decals within 60 days.
Cruise control buttons are on steering wheel but does not work.  I think they unhook that for Ambulance driving safety, I just never figured out where it was disconnected.
A few rust spots that I sanded and touched up.  One large rust hole about the size of a silver dollar under drivers door, sanded and painted but not really repaired yet.
Ambulance does not have the inverter to run 110V wall outlets, they must have taken it out just before I bought from the ambulance company.  It still has 2 wires with connectors ran to the storage closet so maybe it's a simple install.



I require a $500 PAYPAL DEPOSIT within 24 hours of auction end.
If picking up in person, only cash is acceptable.  I have a clear title in hand.  Must pick up by December 22nd.
Will ship but you must pay for and make all arrangements.Balance must be paid by bank to bank wire transfer within 5 business days, and must ship it within 15 days.
 
For questions call me anytime up until 11 PM California time any night.  66 1  no 87  4 texting7 546. or ask me at animal rescue and transport at ho t ma il dot co m.

Ford board OK with Mulally stepping down earlier

Fri, 06 Sep 2013 11:00:00 EST

Ford's board is open to CEO Alan Mulally stepping down before his planned departure in 2014, inside sources are telling Reuters. Ford's plan of succession, aside from who would be his actual successor, has been something approaching common knowledge - the 68-year-old former Boeing exec had plans to stay through 2014. This was recently confirmed by Mulally himself on Bloomberg Television and in Automotive News.
Motivation for the about-face comes from what Reuters calls a "growing confidence" in the current crop of Ford execs, led by Mark Fields. Fields, Ford's current chief operating officer, has been tipped as Mulally's ultimate successor, although he's far from the only person with eyes on Ford's top job. Normally, Ford's board saying they're open to an executive, that's done very well for the company, stepping down early would be nearly unremarkable. It's the timing of this announcement, though, that makes this a big piece of news.
Recently, Mulally has been the subject of rumors that he's interested in taking the CEO position at tech giant Microsoft. The Redmond, Washington-based company's CEO, Steve Ballmer, told the media in August that he'd be retiring in a year's time. The fires were stoked when tech website AllThingsD speculated that Mulally would take the top spot, despite denials from the man himself. Could Ford's current boss become the new top dog at Microsoft? Will Mark Fields replace him? Could recently departed Renault exec Carlos Tavares land at Ford in some capacity? Let us know what you think below in Comments.

Ford recalling 370,000 Crown Vic, Grand Marquis and Town Car models

Fri, 30 Aug 2013 13:00:00 EST

The Detroit News is reporting that Ford will recall some 370,000 Crown Victoria (pictured), Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car vehicles from model years 2005 through 2011, for an issue regarding the lower intermediate steering shaft. 355,000 of the vehicles in question were sold in the US, with the other 15,000 sold in Canada.
The report indicates that corrosion of the lower intermediate steering shaft could cause a "loss of steering," presumably because of a partial or complete failure of the part. The report points out the dealers will inspect and replace the offending steering component for recalled cars, and may also secure a lower steering column bearing and replace the upper intermediate steering shaft as needed. The company is unaware of any reports of the faulty part causing any accidents or injuries.
Ford helpfully lists states in which corrosion is more likely to have taken place, mostly in the Snow Belt, as you might guess. Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia are listed.

Ford, Renault, VW shareholder oppose French aid for PSA/Peugeot-Citro"en

Mon, 29 Oct 2012 14:01:00 EST

Pots and kettles, glass houses and stones - that's a little of what we appear to have going on in the European car market. New reports say that that three European automakers have registered their opposition to a loan deal that PSA/Peugeot-Citroën is working on with the French government. Peugeot's finance arm, Banque PSA Finance, is struggling with its debts and has been downgraded by Moody's to its lowest investment-grade classification, one step above junk. This makes it more expensive for a potential buyer to finance a car through Peugeot. The last thing Peugeot needs is more difficulty selling cars in the tough European market, and the situation will only worsen if the bank's credit worthiness takes another hit.
A deal being worked on would have the French government offer €7 billion ($9B U.S.) in bonds to guarantee the bank's loans, which would give the institution some breathing room to manage its debts and lower its interest rates. Outside of that, a group of banks would provide other, non-guaranteed loans to the bank to further help its position. In exchange for state help, though, the government wants seats on Peugeot's board for worker representatives and a government liaison, along with factory and worker guarantees. The Peugeot family would maintain control of the company.
So what we have is government assistance being provided to a car company's finance arm, akin to the way General Motors' GMAC (now Ally Financial) and Chrysler Financial got help in their time of need. What we also have is Ford and Renault, and Germany's State of Lower Saxony, the second-largest shareholder in Volkswagen, voicing their concern about the proposal, because they say it could create an unfair competitive advantage for Peugeot. Everyone in Europe's down market is fighting for every sale, and if Peugeot gets help to keep its auto loan costs down, it figures to help buyers choose Peugeot or Citroën.
