Ok, I've got a 1928-1931 ford truck rat rod project. There is no title because I havent gotten that far. The cab, frame, and bed were built by a Heath at New Metal Kustoms in Kentucky. The motor is a 1950's ford 223ci straight six along with a matching three speed trans from the same vehicle that the motor is from. I personally have dissassembled and fully checked the internals. The internals of the motor have been magnafluxed and all is great with the motor. I do not have a yoke for the trans but do have a drive shaft to fit the crown vic rear end. The front axle is from a 1930 ford model a, front brakes are from a 1955 ford f100 with new bearings and seals. The spindles are from a 1938 ford truck. I have split the wish bones and welded in new bungs and threaded heim joints. The split wish bones are from a 1938 ford truck. The motor mounts are made by myself and are tacked in quite well. There is no trans mount made yet. Transmission shift into all gears with the new Mr. Gasket three speed shifter. I have two steering wheels and shafts that go with the truck. One is from the same 1938 ford truck, and the other is from a Jeep that I found in the junk yard. I also have the dash from the old jeep that's been cut down. Speedo guage is still in the dash from the jeep. It gives that vintage feel having the large speedo. There is a front grill from a 1929 ford that I was going to use to hold the radiator and also goes with the truck. The rear end is from a crown vic and the emergency cables are still attached. The truck has no interior.The wheels and tires are original to a 50's merc and are 16x4 with a 3.5 inch white wall. Ive got two vega steering boxes to go with the project. I've got bolts holding on the front axle but it will need the correct perches to be installed. The cab is a slant roof with speed holes cut in the visor. Mini Bear Claw latches are installed for the doors to lock shut. The gas tank is an spun aluminum 15 galon tank that is mounted in the rear of the truck. I wish that I had time to finish but that isnt the case. If you have questions or requests for additional pic's just let me know.

Even as rumors swirl that the next-generation of high-performance Ford Mustang will drop the Shelby name, Ford has released a short video telling how the legend of the Shelby Mustang came to be. In its latest installment of its video series entitled Mustang Countdown, Ford dug up some footage from Carroll Shelby to give a little insight into how this automotive icon was created.

While it's definitely interesting to hear the late legend tell the story in his own words (including numerous references to the 1964 Mustang as a "secretary's car"), it's also pretty funny learning exactly how the Shelby GT350 got its name in the first place - a name allegedly making a comeback as the replacement for the current Shelby GT500. As development work continues on the 2015 Ford Mustang, the Shelby video posted below shows that the automaker is always looking at its past - even as it looks ahead to the future.
Joe Hinrichs, Ford's President of The Americas (pictured above), announced today that in late 2014, the automaker will be building the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder at its Cleveland Engine Plant, a move requiring a $200-million investment and the hiring of 450 new employees. European-built Ford products will continue to source this engine from the Valencia, Spain plant where all of these EcoBoost four-cylinder engines are currently built, and the new Cleveland engines will be used for all North American-made models.

Ford is planning to build its popular EcoBoost engines regionally to maximize production capacity and meet customer demand. Last year, Ford sold 334,364 vehicles with EcoBoost engines in the US alone, and that number is expected to swell to more than 500,000 by the end of this year, with global sales expected to total 1.6 million. By 2015, Ford says that 95 percent of its nameplates will offer an EcoBoost engine.
One such vehicle that could be adding an EcoBoost engine, according to Automotive News, is none other than the 2015 Ford Mustang. The report says that Ford could use either the 2.0-liter EcoBoost or an upcoming 2.3-liter EcoBoost in the sixth-generation pony car.
Back in September, Ford announced a non-pursuit version of its Police Interceptor Sedan, which swaps out a choice of two V6 engines for a fuel-efficient 2.0-liter EcoBoost inline four-cylinder. This Special Service Police Sedan will be marketed to law enforcement agencies looking to cut fuel costs and don't need the extra power.
For college campuses, detectives and the like, this new police car has now been certified with EPA fuel economy estimates of 20 miles per gallon in the city, 32 mpg on the highway and a combined rating of 24 mpg. These figures represent a decrease of two mpg in city and combined ratings compared to the civilian-spec 2014 Taurus. These police cars still offer active grille shutters for better aerodynamics, although we're guessing agencies upfitting their cars with light bars and push bumpers aren't exactly concerted with aerodynamics. The true benefit of the SSP version is when it's compared against other police sedan options like the Dodge Charger, Chevy Impala, Chevy Caprice and even the V6 Police Interceptor Sedan.
Ford claims the new Police Interceptor Sedan SSP is the most fuel-efficient current option for police departments, saying that this car can save $1,720 per car over three years and almost $260,000 over the same span of time for fleets with 150 vehicles. There is an official press release posted below, and also check out the gallery of images from Ford collected from various police agencies across the US (although none show the 2.0-liter SSP model).
