1964 Ford Galaxie 500 Big block 390 4 speed
This is one sweet car! I recently found this car buried n an old guys garage! The last time It was registered and on the road was in the early 90s.
The man I purchased the car from said that the motor was professionally rebuilt shortly before he parked it. He also said that when he purchased the car sometime in the 1980's, he got it from Missouri. Until it was brought here, it was a Missouri car only, explaining how rust free it is. This Galaxie was wrecked back in the 1970s and the original owner in Missouri had the car fixed. The title on the car reflects that, as it says rebuilt on it. The car is nice and straight. It drives perfectly straight and feels nice and tight. The car makes no abnormal noises, and the transmission shifts nice and crisp.
The pictures make this car look really nice, and it is, however I want to be perfectly clear that the car needs some work. It has been sitting for a long time, so as you might expect, some of the lights don't work, a lower quarter panel patch is showing some blisters in the paint. The car needs a good tune up, etc..
The gas has been drained and refilled with fresh gas. A new fuel pump was installed, points were cleaned and adjusted, and she fired right up!!
Apparently this car used to do some racing back in the 1960's. It has a locked rear axle which is great for drag racing, but not so great for the street, but that is just my opinion.
The interior is all original and in very good shape. It does have some small tearing on the seams of the seats.
NOTE: The wheels and tires pictured do NOT go with the sale of the car. I will put on the original wheels and hub caps.
This car also comes with some misc parts including a perfect original hood from a 1964 Galaxie.

Typically when an automaker rolls out a concept car or pre-production prototype, it does its tour and then disappears into the company's archives. Maybe it will be displayed for the public to see in the company's own museum or maybe it will spend most of its time under covers in a warehouse somewhere, but every once in a while, an automaker will open up its history and start selling off its concept cars. For Shelby American, "once in a while" has just rolled around.

The House that Carroll Built is moving from its previous headquarters at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to a new facility off of the Las Vegas strip, and in the process is liquidating fourteen of the rarest cars in its collection. That presents a tremendous opportunity for muscle car collectors to bring one or more of these snakes home.
As you might expect, the catalog is composed mostly of Mustangs, but not exclusively. There's a pair of 289 Cobras: the last of the 50th anniversary slab-sided continuation cars and an original development vehicle, offered at $200,000 apiece. At the other end of the spectrum you'll find the 2013 Shelby Raptor concept for $125k and Focus concept for $50k. And of course there are the Mustangs.
It's that time in the life of the Ford Focus to get a little work done - a nip-tuck here, some Botox there. Yes, Ford is testing a facelifted version of its global C-segment entry, which first hit markets in Europe and North America in May 2011.

Like the touchup on the Fiesta, expect Ford's gaping grille to make its first appearance on the Focus. Our spy photographers point out that this is likely to be a more comprehensive makeover than previous spy shots suggested, based on the additional camouflage seen here on the front and rear ends of this five-door model. New head and taillights are also likely in order, as are changes to the front and rear fascia.
The interior was also snapped and features a cleaner design with a larger central display. Other than that, it looks like some buttons have been changed, making us think most of the Focus' updates are limited to the exterior.
Ford Motor Company has announced the acquisition of Livio, a Ferndale, MI-based software development company best known for aftermarket in-car connectivity devices, but also as a supplier of technology for proprietary systems for automakers. Livio, co-founded by Sigal and Massimo Baldini, will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford Global Technologies.
"With the additional expertise Livio provides us, Ford intends to continue to lead the next generation of in-car connectivity with technology advancements that give consumers more options to access their devices on the go," said Paul Mascarenas, chief technical officer and vice president, Ford Research and Innovation, in a statement.
Ford is clearly trying to beef up its in-house tech capability around telematics and device connectivity. While the Blue Oval has been a leader in these areas with SYNC and MyFord Touch in terms of getting the systems into as many cars as possible, the execution of the applications have been criticized for glitches.
