For your consideration, a 1962 ford Unibody truck with the V8 and the 4 speed. Ford attempted to attach the tuck bed to the cab in 61 and 62 and unfortunately it created body flex problems for people using the truck for hauling loads, which is generally why people get a truck to begin with. The trucks looked great, but soon truck buyers were aware of the problem and it was discontinued in 1963 to return to a separate bed. Unibody ford trucks have become quite sought after as they look great and they are still strong enough for most purposes.
This truck was a rust free Colorado truck in Pueblo. In fact, it was in such nice condition that it was hard not to completely repaint and detail the undercarriage. The miles are unknown, but the engine starts instantly and has full compression, it is the original 292 Y block. We pulled the engine to detail it and it didn't even have a leak. The 4 speed shifts perfect and we detailed it. The interesting thing about this truck is being an F250, 3/4 ton. Most survivors are more likely to be the F100 driven more as a car than used as a full work vehicle. Hauling heavy loads could bend the cab but this one was quite straight. We did put in new kingpins and they need to break in, but the truck is ready for show or go. The drive train is very sound, an overhaul just was not justified. It has new paint, new glass, new seals, complete detail and everything kept as original except for the bed liner. There were a few bumps and bed liner just made sense. This is a very interesting truck and quite original. It's a solid base to build a modified but the originality makes it a great show truck. Even has the original tailgate. It's also street legal but advisable to trailer it if you are an out of state buyer.
Partial delivery can be arranged for states adjacent to Colorado at a nominal fee. It is also available to test drive in the Denver area. The truck would really look sharp at a farm or any nostalgia business. I'm a 100% seller and sold quite a few western cars with rave reviews. I do require a $500.00 paypal deposit. Paypal weeds out the scammers and it protects you if the item is not as described. I can work with you on some transportation out of Denver at reasonable rates.

Shelby is a name as synonymous with the Ford Mustang as marshmallows are with campfires. But unlike the short-lived sugary confection that is prepared on a stick, the late Carroll Shelby's name on the placard means added performance and exclusivity. Launched in 1965, the automaker's celebrated early cars were in production for a limited run - today, a mint concours-quality 1965 Shelby GT350 can sell for upwards of $350,000.

To coincide with the 45th anniversary of the original Shelby GT350, Shelby American reintroduced the GT350 in 2011. Like the original, it was only offered in white with blue stripes. Customers were offered a choice between naturally aspirated (440 horsepower) and two levels of supercharging (525 horsepower with a warranty or 624 horsepower without). The manufacturer calls the GT350 a "post-title" package, a term that means it starts out life as a stock Mustang and is modified outside Ford's factory (this is in contrast to the Shelby GT500, which is a standard Ford production car).
As the GT350 enters its third year, Shelby has made several changes. Mechanically, Wilwood brakes replace Baer units and Recaro seats and a tinted glass roof are on the options list. Cosmetically, the vehicle is now offered in most of the Blue Oval's factory colors, new multispoke wheels are available in Satin Black or Bright Silver Metallic finish, and customers can choose between Satin Black, Silver or Gloss White stripes (or Azure Blue Metallic on Performance White or Ingot Silver). Aesthetically, the look of the car has also changed somewhat - keen eyes will note that it actually appears more 'stock' than it did last year.
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?

Ford has combined multiple steps into one with its commercial vehicle configurator, which allows users to choose, design and place orders for the Transit, Transit Connect, E-Series vans and F-Series Super Duty trucks.
The most interesting part of the new configurator is a fairly robust design tool. Users are able to choose paint color and wrap the vehicle, and then create their own graphics. No materials are needed - Ford provides numerous background textures, text boxes, plenty of shapes and 20 categories of images including floral, construction, plumbing and skylines. Self-created designs or images can be uploaded to the system as well.
We played around with the design tool a bit and uploaded our own image to create the Autoblog Podcast Live van you see here. Feel free to check out the configurator and make your own design.
