1966 Ford F250 Crew Cab
This rare Ford F250 Crew Cab also known as a Six Pack back in the 60's came out of Iowa and was used by a company called Higley Construction. It has been highly altered since it showed up at our shop here in Tennessee. We started by converting the now fully boxed chassis to an independent front suspension and a triangulated 4 bar rear. Because of the length of the vehicle we also opted for a two piece drive-shaft to keep from sectioning the floor. The frame has been stepped up in the front and the rear and fully boxed. Also, a set of Firestone air bags were installed at each corner for ride quality. When it came time to pick an air management system to control the suspension we went with the full Accuair setup. This is a self leveling air management system that has direct control of each corner or three preset settings of your choice. Its as easy to program the settings to your liking as it is to set a preset on your radio. It has a 10 gallon air capacity so that you never have to wait on any air pressure, always plenty on demand. Everything has been painted except the exterior of the truck because we liked that it still wore its original paint. Under the hood and inside of the bed were sprayed Wimbledon white for a cleaner look and to give the next owner a jump on an original two tone paint style. The chassis has also been completely painted top to bottom. You can see these details better on the website under the custom projects section along with the rest of the work that was done. The truck rides on a staggered set of 20x8.5'' front and 22x9.5'' rear billet smoothies and Nitto 555 tires. The engine is a stock 302 roller motor with all the goodies and accessories attached to an AOD transmission and 9'' rear. Lokar lines and shifter were used along with an aluminum radiator and fan shroud with electric fans and a billet overflow. Cal custom valve covers, breathers and air cleaner were used to top it off and all of the plumbing was ran with AN fittings. All of the sheet metal work that was in need of repair has been completed and painted. We just cleaned up the interior a little so that the next person could personalize it to their taste. We started with recovering the dash and the seats and adding carpet front to back. The list goes on and on so feel free to come in and see this truck or feel free to give us a call at 615-220-9000 and ask for Brian. We will be happy to scrape the logos off the truck for the winning bidder if he or she chooses. We welcome any third party inspections if you're unable to come see the vehicle before auctions end. I have no idea what the value of this truck is hence the auction format. Please honor this and do not email or call for the reserve price. Bid to own, thanks.

Ford is giving its F-Series Super Duty trucks some upgrades for 2015, and we're happy to say that one of them is an improved Power Stroke diesel V8. Also, Ford is strengthening the top-of-the-line F-450 to handle more abuse. And if wild west-style luxury is your thing, the automaker has performed minor cosmetic updates to its King Ranch Edition trucks, as well.

The turbocharged 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 is currently rated at 400 horsepower and 800 pound-feet of torque, and Ford only tells us the new and improved Power Stroke can "produce power beyond today's" engine. What, then, did Ford actually improve upon? First, the Blue Oval swapped in a new, larger turbocharger. The new Garrett GT37 turbine unit is 72.5 millimeters in diameter, eclipsing the old GT32's 64-mm diameter piece. Ford states output increases with the new turbo setup, but since the new turbocharger operates at a lower peak pressure than the old one, the automaker was able to eliminate the wastegate system and reduce the engine's complexity. Ford even redesigned the turbo's oil and cooling lines to make the powerplant simpler. A byproduct of the larger turbo is better engine exhaust braking, which is controlled manually by a button on the dashboard.
Ford claims the upgraded diesel engine is more powerful, more robust, more efficient and more refined than before.
Just one year after launching the all-new 2013 Fusion, Ford is reportedly set to alter the sedan's powertrain lineup with the addition of a new 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder EcoBoost engine. A member of Blue Oval Forums apparently got their hands on the ordering guide for the 2014 model year Fusion, and this 1.5-liter mill is set to be introduced with late availability.

This lines up with other news about the Chinese-market Mondeo being offered with a new 1.5-liter EcoBoost - a derivative of the 1.0-liter triple that will come to North America under the hood of the Fiesta (note: the 1.0 is also offered in the current Euro-spec Mondeo). In the Chinese application, the larger three-pot engine produces 177 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, which is very close to the current 1.6-liter inline-four's output numbers of 178 hp and 184 lb-ft.
What's interesting, however, is that the 1.6-liter engine will reportedly still be offered in the Fusion, but only with the six-speed manual transmission. The smaller 1.5-liter EcoBoost will only be mated to a six-speed SelectShift automatic, and will feature start/stop. This means that while the 1.5 is slightly down on power compared to the 1.6, it could easily improve fuel economy numbers, allowing the Fusion to regain the title of having the best mileage in the segment, likely besting the 38 miles per gallon of the Nissan Altima. Currently, the Fusion 1.6 is rated at 23 mpg city and 36 mpg highway.
According to Automotive News, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is launching a probe into 400,000 Ford F-150 models over possible acceleration problems. According to the article, NHTSA has received 95 reports "alleging incidents of reduced engine power during hard accelerations" on 2011 to 2013 F-150 models equipped with the company's 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine.
Automotive News reports that Ford has issued three technical service bulletins "related to intermittent stumble/misfire on acceleration from highway cruise in humid or damp conditions," according to the government agency's documents. About one third of the 95 reports NHTSA has received cited humid or rainy conditions when these problems allegedly occurred.
These technical service bulletins have allowed dealers to address a "condition related to moisture accumulation in the charge air cooler during extended highway cruising at constant throttle in humid or damp conditions," AN reports, citing NHTSA documents. Furthermore, the TSB outlines details for "reprogramming the powertrain control module with the latest calibration and installing a new CAC and air deflector plate."
