Hello I am selling my 1955 ford pickup truck. This is my dads truck. He is not very good with computers. He has had the car for about a year.


The car was restored 4 years ago. my dad wanted to change the color from a two tone green to a metallic blue. So it has a fresh new paintjob less than 4 months old. The flakes in the paint sparkle like crazy!

The interior was just replaced with new reclining bench seats, headliner, carpet and side door inserts. While they were doing this they lost my dads door handle for the interior which you could buy anywhere. 


The engine is a corvette 327 v8 four barrel carb, and center dump manifold with powerglide transmission. Was rebuilt 4 years ago by the previous owner. 30,000 after rebuild. Starts and runs great. Automatic transmission shifts smooth.

No rust anywhere. Solid truck.

Steering column tilt. The key is on the column now.

new brake lines. 

New American Racing wheels.

Truck was dropped 3 inches to get that hotrod look.

Tires have 75 percent tread left.

New exhaust system Sounds very mean. Due to the engine.

Power steering makes this car easy to drive.

disk brakes are very powerful.

Very fun to drive gets peoples attention. me and my dad have had many people stop by my garage asking if they could see it. It is a great conversation starter.

Reason for the low price is because My dad needs the money for my college.

1969 Ford Talladega GPT Special is a SEMA showstopper

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 17:59:00 EST

Rad Rides by Troy has unleashed upon the SEMA crowds this custom 1969 Ford Torino Talladega GT Special, and it's a beauty. The car calls to mind the classic Holman Moody stock cars that circled NASCAR tracks in the late 1960's, driven by the likes of Mario Andretti, Dan Gurney and David Pearson, who won the Grand National title in both 1968 and '69 in a Ford Torino.
Even though it has plenty of stock-car influence, there's nothing retro about the car's design or powertrain, other than the fact that the engine is based on a Ford Boss 429 block. Fuel injection, aftermarket aluminum heads and a high-tech custom computer system combine to send 750 reliable ponies to the rear wheels through a Tremec five-speed manual transmission. Brakes measure 14-inches all around, with six-piston Wilwood calipers up front and four-piston units out back.
There's custom bodywork abound, painted in a two-tone Tennessee Whiskey Gold and Daytona Sand finish. Check out all the amazing details in the image gallery below, and scroll down to read all about it in designer Troy Trepanier's own words.

Detroit Three autoworkers could get huge bonuses

Mon, 06 Jan 2014 19:15:00 EST

For a long time, being a line worker for one of the Detroit Three has meant living with an uncertain future. With the health of American automakers on the rise, though, things are also starting to look up for the men and women building the cars. The latest sign that things aren't bad? Big profit-sharing checks.
According to The Detroit News, Ford, General Motors and Chrysler could end up paying over $800 million to 130,000 workers as part of a profit-sharing plan. According to The News, the economic impact of these profits in Michigan alone could exceed $400 million, besting the NFL's Super Bowl, MLB's All-Star Game and the NHL's Winter Classic for their economic impact.
This is the third straight year the Detroit Three have issued profit-sharing checks to UAW employees, and for many workers, the checks are as close as they'll get to a raise, due to the most recent contract between the union and the manufacturers. On average, employees at GM and Ford receive $1 for every $1 million in North American (not just the US) pre-tax profits. Chrysler, meanwhile, gets a similar deal, although the Auburn Hills-based company calculates profit sharing using 85 percent of the brand's global profits.

Thieves still love older Hondas and pickups most, says NICB [w/video]

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 19:00:00 EST

No one wants to have their car stolen, but a new study by the National Insurance Crime Bureau has some bad news for older Honda owners and pickup drivers. Fortunately, it has better news for drivers overall. The group is reporting that according to preliminary data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, thefts were down 3.2 percent in 2013 (versus 2012) to fewer than 700,000 cars. That's the lowest figure since 1967. That's also less than half of the peak of over 1.66 million thefts in 1991. "The drop in thefts is good news for all of us," says NICB President and CEO Joe Wehrle. "But it still amounts to a vehicle being stolen every 45 seconds and losses of over $4 billion a year."
Honda drivers might not find it such good news with older Accord and Civic models topping this year's theft study. Toyota and Dodge can't really celebrate, either, with two models each on the list, as well. Overall, this year's list was split evenly between foreign and domestic models, which were mostly pickups.
The 10 most likely vehicles to be stolen in 2013 were:
