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.

Ken Block and friends race light in silly-beautiful Castrol commercial

Wed, 28 May 2014 12:45:00 EST

How does one make fast, loud, drifting cars better? Well, you can add more fast, loud, drifting cars or you can add lasers. Either or, really. In this case, Castrol did the right thing and added both, creating a highly stylized commercial for its Edge Titanium motor oil starring South African racer Adrian Zaugg, BMW factory driver Augusto Farfus, Audi DTM and Le Mans staple Mike Rockenfeller and some bloke named Ken Block.
Their cars? No surprise, but Block is in his Ford Fiesta GRC, while Zaugg samples a Lamborghini Aventador and Farfus and Rockenfeller drive along party lines, with a BMW M4 and an Audi R8, respectively. And those cars look good, too, thanks to the creative light and laser work on display.
Take a look below for the video from Castrol.

NHTSA upgrades Ford floor mat unintended acceleration probe

Mon, 17 Dec 2012 08:27:00 EST

According to a Bloomberg report, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has upgraded an investigation into complaints of unintended acceleration lodged against Ford vehicles. The investigation began in June of 2010 when just three complaints had been received and it only concerned the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan, but this was at a time when the phrase "unintended acceleration" made grown men go pale. With 49 additional complaints received since then, the investigation has been reclassified as an engineering analysis - the last phase before a recall - and it has been expanded to include the Lincoln MKZ, making for a total of "around 480,000" units affected between the three sedans from the 2008 to 2010 model years.
The ostensible cause is that floor mats are trapping the accelerator pedal, but according to a Ford statement at the time, the entrapment is due to owners placing the optional all-weather floor mats, or aftermarket floor mats, on top of the car's standard floor mats. NHTSA has backed up that assessment, pinning the blame on "unsecured or double stacked floor mats."
On the face of it, it would appear that NHTSA has upgraded the status not because of Ford's error, but owner error, and Ford has stated publicly that it is "disappointed" in NHTSA's move. On top of NHTSA still being skittish after that other unintended acceleration debacle, it could be seen to be taking its time investigating all of the variables: it's reported that Ford changed its accelerator pedal design in 2010, a "heel blocker" in the floorpan has been considered a potential culprit in how the floor mats could be trapping the pedal, some drivers have said the floor mats weren't anywhere near the pedal, and according to a report in the LA Times, in "a letter sent by Ford to NHTSA in August 2010, the automaker said it found three injuries and one fatality that 'may have resulted from the alleged defect.'"

Blue Oval's new Cargo cab-over rig is largest "One Ford" initiative yet

Thu, 24 Jan 2013 17:15:00 EST

The imposing commercial truck above has a feature that might be surprising to most Autoblog readers - a Blue Oval emblem on the front. Here in North America, Ford simply doesn't play in the eighteen-wheeler sandbox, but that doesn't mean that the Dearborn-based automaker is absent in the heavy hauling space in other parts of the globe. In fact, Ford presently fields two completely different big rig ranges under the Cargo moniker - one a product of an Eastern Europe/Turkey joint venture, and another from Brazil. But that's about to start changing with the advent of this new cab-over model seen here.
Unveiled in São Paulo, Brazil, this new generation of Cargo is perhaps the largest physical embodiment of CEO Alan Mulally's "One Ford" global streamlining strategy. Instead of multiple models, company engineers have developed a new single truck that it says will better meet the needs of truckers in all markets. Designed to compete in what's known as the "extra heavy-duty segment" elsewhere in the world, this Cargo was developed jointly by Ford engineering teams in Brazil, Turkey and Europe.
Specifics remain hard to come by (read: unreleased), but Ford is promising an all-new engine enabling hauling capability of up to 56 tons while still returning excellent fuel economy. Ford's global Cargo lineup will henceforth consist of a dozen models, but Ford tells Autoblog has no plans to bring this hot and heavy-duty action to North America.
