I have for sale my 1953 f100 short bed project truck. Its an extremely solid and straight truck! I painted the frame with ppg single stage with hardner chassis black. I sanded all the body panels and primed the fenders, hood and cab of the truck and blocked it. There's no rust at all on the truck. the roughest part of the truck is the bed there's some small dings here and there on the bed of it. I painted the truck twilight black metallic from hot rod flatz. the interior and the grille of the truck is two toned with diamont platinum grey metallic base and diamont clear. the inner fender panels, the floor pan inside and out have been undercoated along with underside of hood. im selling as a rolling chassis. the bed i've put brand new braces and bolts stained and cleared both sides of plywood board, brand new factory style tailgate. I have brand new bed extensions front and rear that have not been put on the truck but will go with it. all parts were bought through mid fifties ford company. ive got brand new black carpet that goes with the truck as well. Its got brand new set of vision legend 18x9.5 wheels with a set of Dunlop tires. the wheels are 5x5 bolt pattern because that's the only style of rim I could find that was an 18 inch so its got 4 wheel billet adapters. Ive got a rack and pinion I'Il send with the truck as well. I have the factory radiator that goes with the truck as well. 4 brand new wheel cylinders go with the truck. ive got the drivers side window but all the glass and both wing windows is needing replaced. only reason im selling this truck is because ive got to many projects and don't have the time to finish this one. this truck is all factory stuff except for wheels tailgate and the bed rails. Everything for the truck ive got is all pictured. This truck is a project still. Its just a rolling chassis no motor or transmission. I had planned on putting a fuel injected sbc with overdrive trans but like I said just have way to many projects going on at once and have to let this one go. The truck will go with a bill of sale only. ive got a lot more pics and can get more just let me know what you would like to see.If you have any questions feel free to contact me at 6205211447. Thanks Nate
Last month Ford's Jim Farley made waves at the CES when it was reported he told show attendees, "We have GPS in your car, so we know what you're doing. By the way, we don't supply that data to anyone." Farley and Ford later partially retracted and clarified that statement.
Spurred by a desire for further transparency on data collection policies, Ford representatives answered questions from Congress, specifically Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.), about driver privacy.
The Detroit News reports that Ford told Congress it does collect some vehicle location data in an effort to "troubleshoot and improve our products" on behalf of the driver. Ford went on to say that it only collects limited data after receiving permission from owners.
We're sure that dealers must see all sorts of interesting trade ins, but this one may take the cake. Red River Chevrolet in Bossier City, Louisiana, recently had a customer come in with an odd request. Tina Boyter wanted to trade in three vehicles on a brand-new 2013 Chevy Corvette. Among the hardware was 1980 Corvette, a 1978 Cadillac Eldorado and a 1914 Ford Model T. While the '80 Corvette had been her personal car for years, the '78 Eldorado had belonged to Boyter's mother before she traded up to a Lincoln. The big Caddy had just 10,290 miles on the clock when it was traded in.
And the Model T? Boyter says the car was built as a racer by Ford, and that it had been a show winner for years when it belonged to her father. But, after spending the last 16 years in a museum with its fluids drained, Boyter decided it was time to shed some of the past. She walked into the dealer, laid eyes on a white 2LT Corvette with a red interior and offered to trade all three of the vehicles in on the sports car.
Why not wait for the C7? "I fell in love with that one when I walked in the door," She said. We can't fault her there.
Ford is recalling 6,308 units of the 2012 and 2013 Focus Electric and 2013 Focus ST that were fitted with HID headlights because a "wiring incompatibility" could keep the front side marker lights from working. A bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the recall should begin in the middle of this month, after which owners can take their cars to dealers to have the wiring assembly repaired free of charge.
