Here is a 1956 Ford Sunliner convertible project, rough and rusty, including a super solid, rust free AZ 1956 Ford Town Sedan. Make a nice '56 Sunliner from the two cars, or have two really good parts cars. The Sunliner was originally Colonial White over Fiesta Red, with Fiesta Red/White vinyl interior and a black convertible top. There is a yblock in it - not sure if it is a 292 or a 312. Has a Fordomatic auto trans still in it. Most convertible components are still present in the car. Seat springs are partially there but pretty rough - usable for a pattern. Has a decent set of roof bows on it - car steers and rolls. I can't find any data plates on the car, but the VIN numbers should be stamped on the frame front and rear. I will have a look to see if I can find them. There is no title on this car.
Included is a rust free 1956 Ford Fairlane Town Sedan. Looks to have a 292 yblock mated to a Fordomatic auto trans. The sheet metal on this car is super solid. It also has Master Guide power steering, and a T&C radio in it. I don't have the grill or park lamp housing for the car. Has a data plate on it, but I do not have a title for this car.
I won't part these cars out - will only sell complete. They are also listed for sale outside of Ebay, so the auction here may end at any time. If you have any questions, drop me a line here or contact Greg @ 1-250-640-6479.

Okay Ford, this is what we like to see. One of our intrepid spy photographers has captured a vehicle that we weren't even sure would see the light of day - the next Focus RS. While this is pretty clearly a mule based on the current Focus ST, as our spy points out, there are a number of giveaways about this hot hatch's true nature.
Sat, 21 Jun 2014 11:00:00 EST
Indication number one that all is not right with this Focus is the heavily camo'd front fascia, which has been completely reconfigured for duty on the RS. It boasts significantly larger grilles that are meant to accommodate what is likely the 2.3-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder that's destined for the 2015 Ford Mustang. Considering that, then, we can expect around 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque from the hottest of Foci, although it's entirely possible that the production model could climb even higher, to around 330 hp.
The front fascia tweaks are complemented in the back by a modified rear bumper, which fails at hiding a pair of exhaust tips quite unlike the standard Focus ST's center-exit exhaust. Other obvious changes include the wheel/tire/brake package on this particular car. Larger 19-inch wheels are shod in super-sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires in 235/35/19 while the brakes feature what we think are four-piston calipers, possibly from Brembo, up front.
The 2015 Mustang is one of the most hotly anticipated vehicles of the moment, and Ford continues to leak out interesting little details about its newest pony car. The latest info doesn't have anything to do with its quarter-mile time or handling, but if any of that goes drastically wrong, the innovative new glovebox-mounted airbag may prevent passengers from knee injuries.

All variants of the 2015 Mustang get the active knee airbag as standard, and it's the first vehicle in Ford's lineup to receive the system. The setup is actually quite simple and ingenious. The glovebox is made from a plastic outer panel that is attached to the inner door. Sandwiched between them is this new injection-molded plastic bladder that folds flat when in use. If the passenger-side airbag deploys, the system springs into action to act as a cushion for your knees. Compared to a traditional knee airbag that has to fully inflate, this arrangement is 65 percent lighter and can use a 75 percent smaller inflator. It's also basically invisible when you look at the glovebox door.
Ford spokesperson Ed Saenz declined to tell Autoblog whether the system will appear in other vehicles in the Blue Oval's lineup but said, "We're considering other applications." Provided it's effective, the approach seems too simple not to make its way to other products. Scroll down to watch a video showing how the glovebox-mounted knee airbag works.
With the polar vortex fresh in the minds of Autoblog's Detroit-based staff, we're finding it funny that any manufacturer would choose January in the Motor City to show off a new and highly anticipated convertible to the general media and public for the first time. But Ford has done just that, giving us our first real peek at the new Mustang Convertible in the flesh.
The new Mustang Convertible is more or less unchanged from the standard coupe, with some subtle styling tweaks to accommodate the retractable soft top. Engine and transmission choices are identical to the hardtop, although we should expect slightly lower performance due to the hardware for the roof. Like the coupe, neither prices nor performance metrics have been published yet for the convertible.
