Super Rare 1964 Country Squire Highly Optioned 6 Passenger Wagon in Suberb rust free unrestored condition. Options include T-Bird 390, A/C, Roof Rack, Power Stearing and brakes and working electric rear window. If you want the ultimate Surfwagon that you can drive to the beach and leave without body guards , this is it!!!!. Car was just driven on a 100 mile trip at 70 miles per hour without any issues. This is a beautiful unrestored rust free wagon with original trim and interior that is a survivor and a wonderfully fun driver. We bought this wagon two years ago with the idea to restore and have yet to start any major work. Recent work ( $2500.00) includes freshenening the engine compartment, along with carb rebuild, new valve cover gaskets, electric fuel pump, reconditioned gas tank, distributor, plugs, points wires and suspension gone through. The car starts and drives beautifully and is NOW solid and tight. This 64 Country Squire has the rare 390 CI Upgrade Thunderbird Engine Option with 300 HP which does not smoke or tick. The front suspension has been rebuilt and exhaust is new front to back. The car has had one driver quality repaint years ago but the door jambs are original and NOT all covered in overspray and thick paint as most old wagons are, and the woodgrain has been replaced at some point with after market panelling. The airconditioning is not connected but is all in tack. The rear tailgate window works perfectly. The front seat cover needs replacing and a new after market cover in the same pattern is included and the dash has two cracks and is covered with a dash pad . The head liner is great. Most people dont show you the drivers area because they are hiding the worn out seat but the replacement cover will fix the problem. The rear seats are great. This is a six passenger wagon. The exhaust has straight pipes and has a performance rumble when running. The rear tires are great, front will need replacing eventually. Door jambs and doors are 100% solid as is the body and undercarriage. Chrome is original and decent, These Country Squires are becoming impossible to find but even more so at this price, dont miss out all questions will be answered Car is 10 minutes from Toronto Pearson Airport. Thanks Greg

The V8 grunt of the Mustang has defined Ford performance cars in the US for the last 50 years, but in Europe, the Blue Oval has nearly as a long history of building some of the best hot hatches on the market with the Fiesta, Escort and later the Focus. The latest Fiesta ST has just hit the roads on both sides of the pond and has been enthusiastically received thanks to its combination of a peppy, turbocharged engine and hatchback utility.

However, Europe is getting a bumper crop of hot hatches at the moment, including the forthcoming, third-generation Mini Cooper S. Should Ford have waited to launch the ST until it knew how the competition performed? That's the answer that Xcar is after in its latest video, and it took the Fiesta to the track and some very misty, Welsh roads to find out. Scroll down to find out whether the ST stacks up.
If you're going to build your own hot rod, you'll want to start with a '32 Ford 5-Window Coupe. Favored by American servicemen returning from World War II, the '32 Ford remains the very icon of the hot rod to this day. The trouble is there were only so many of them made in the first place, and finding one today can be a challenge. That's where reproduction models come in.

The aftermarket is replete with companies that will sell you a fiberglass body in the form of a '32 Ford coupe, but quality can be hit or miss. So to help meet demand among hot rod builders and enthusiasts, Ford has teamed up with United Pacific Industries to offer officially licensed body shells.
Announced at the SEMA show in November, the '32 Ford 5-Window Coupe body is made from stamped steel according to original specifications from original machinery where possible or reproduced machinery built to the same original specifications where necessary. The bodies are ready to accept vintage powertrains or crate motors from the Ford Racing catalog, and join the 9,000 other parts offered in the Ford Component Sales catalog - including similar reproduction bodies available for the 1965-70 Mustang and 1940 Ford Coupe. From there, the proverbial sky's the limit.
We at Autoblog love the new little Ford Fiesta ST, and apparently, folks in Europe are pretty impressed with it, as well. According to Ford, the automaker's European arm has already logged 3,000 orders for the new hot hatch since it hit dealerships this March. The US-spec car, which will only be available as a five-door, will go on sale in the United States this summer.
What's perhaps most interesting about the Fiesta ST ordering is that the majority of customers appear to be ordering high-spec cars. According to Ford data, 60 percent of customers have opted for the leather interior with Recaro buckets, and 90 percent have selected the upgraded 17-inch wheels (seen on our test car, above). Spirit Blue has been the most popular color, commanding 27 percent of all orders. As for the technology upgrades, 19 percent of customers have ponied up for the Sony stereo with navigation.
To recap, the Fiesta ST is offered with Ford's 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, putting out 179 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, mated exclusively to a six-speed manual transmission. We had an absolute blast flinging the hot Fiesta through the French Alps, and we can't wait for this sharp little hatch to make its way over to the States.
