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.

Mustang pinball game will feature art by Ford GT designer

Fri, 13 Dec 2013 08:45:00 EST

To celebrate 50 years of Mustang, Ford and Stern Pinball are collaborating on a new pinball machine that will feature the muscle car in all its glory, Polygon reports. Even better, Camilo Pardo, the guy who designed the Ford GT, will provide art for the table; Tanner Foust, Top Gear USA host and professional driver, will handle narrating duties; and a Sony Music soundtrack spanning five decades will provide the tunes.
"The Mustang is one of the most iconic, American cars ever made... What better way to celebrate 50 years of Mustang than with the launch of the Ford Mustang pinball game?" says Stern Pinball CEO Gary Stern.
Watch the promotional trailer for the upcoming Mustang pinball machine below, which will have to hold you over until pricing and availability are announced in early 2014.

Ford Escort Concept goes back to basics

Fri, 19 Apr 2013 21:30:00 EST

Here's the thing about China: The folks buying cars there have a very different set of standards than shoppers in many other markets around the globe. While we all drool over hot metal with bold designs, and while we appreciate automakers going an extra step to inject even their cheapest offerings with aggressive and interesting cues, that sort of sheetmetal sex appeal doesn't always sell in the People's Republic. Case in point is Jaguar, which may be designing a more traditional-looking version of its XJ for the Chinese market, or more to the point of this story, Ford currently sells the less-exciting, last-generation Focus compact in China right alongside the new one.
So consider this new Shanghai-bound C-segment concept a preview of what's to come for that more traditional, budget-minded, less-sexy market. More proof of this pudding: Ford's even calling this concept the Escort - a nod to the Blue Oval's compact car days of yore, and a name that stirs up thoughts of basic, affordable transportation rather than great driving dynamics or bold design. "Customers in China described seeking a vehicle that is stylish - but not one that is arrogant or pretentious," Ford states. And this new Escort concept previews a possibility of providing exactly that for this rapidly expanding automotive market.
What you're looking at, then, is one of the most simple Ford designs we've seen of late, though it still incorporates all of the automaker's latest DNA. The signature hexagonal grille is front and center, flanked by attractive LED headlamps and chrome-rimmed foglamp housings. The entire car's design focuses on clean, smooth surfaces, with one strong character line flowing from front to back just below the beltline. We will say that the car looks decidedly more premium from the rear view, where narrow, horizontal taillamps with an LED accent give the car added visual width. Bland as it may be, it's a handsome little concept, though fear what would likely happen if all of the conceptual details get dumbed down for a production model.

Ford recalling 370,000 Crown Vic, Grand Marquis and Town Car models

Fri, 30 Aug 2013 13:00:00 EST

The Detroit News is reporting that Ford will recall some 370,000 Crown Victoria (pictured), Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car vehicles from model years 2005 through 2011, for an issue regarding the lower intermediate steering shaft. 355,000 of the vehicles in question were sold in the US, with the other 15,000 sold in Canada.
The report indicates that corrosion of the lower intermediate steering shaft could cause a "loss of steering," presumably because of a partial or complete failure of the part. The report points out the dealers will inspect and replace the offending steering component for recalled cars, and may also secure a lower steering column bearing and replace the upper intermediate steering shaft as needed. The company is unaware of any reports of the faulty part causing any accidents or injuries.
Ford helpfully lists states in which corrosion is more likely to have taken place, mostly in the Snow Belt, as you might guess. Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia are listed.
