1923 Ford T Bucket Rat Rod Project.  This is an Assembled Vehicle and was hand built.  It has not been registered or assigned a VIN, but it's easily done in your home State.  I will include a notarized Bill of Sale.  If you don't feel confident about getting a title, I can do it for you for an additional $400 and a 3 week wait (State Law).

The car features a hand built rectangular steel frame and original 1923 Ford T Bucket steel body, very hard to find.  It is powered with a 1970's 472 Cadillac motor (the high performance version) with a Turbo 400 Transmission - both running when removed from the Cadillac 2 years ago.  There are still a few things left to complete:  the brakes (I will include the pedals and the master cylinder); wiring; plumbing; floorboard; and firewall, as well as a few brackets that need to be made.  I will also include the parts to build a roadster style exhaust, but you will have to cut your own head plate as it is not included (they are available on Ebay for about $35).  It really wouldn't take much to get this car to run, a couple of weekends and a moderately equipped backyard garage.  If you don't feel comfortable but are interested in the car, please feel free to email me for my number and we can discuss a price to make this a running car.  It has everything a good Rat Rod should have with a 375+ hp cadi motor, it will be a monster!  I just have no time and too many projects.

I can assist you in setting up shipping.  I have shipped numerous vehicles all over the States and prices range from $700 to $1200 (note, back to college is a "shipping season" where rates can be a little lower).  You can also pickup yourself, I will allow time for travel arrangements within reason and upon full payment.

Please email with any questions.

Thanks.

Toyota fears supplier pressure in Australia with GM pull out

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 13:03:00 EST

With Ford and General Motors both announcing an end to production in Australia, the country's auto industry is in a bad way. With the exit of two big players, there's increased concern that a third Australian manufacturer, Toyota, will be forced out, as well.
"We are saddened to learn of GM Holden's decision. This will place unprecedented pressure on the local supplier network and our ability to build cars in Australia," Toyota Australia said in a statement. The GM closure of Holden production will be the direct end to 2,900 jobs, but will also force a dramatic reduction in the size of the country's supplier network, as there will simply be fewer cars to build.
In the same statement, Toyota Australia said it would work with suppliers and local government to figure out whether continuing production Down Under was even feasible. According to Automotive News, a representative for the Australian Manufacturing Workers' Union told reporters it was "highly likely" that Toyota would also close up shop within the next few years.

Ford partnering with MIT, Stanford on autonomous vehicle research

Fri, 24 Jan 2014 09:28:00 EST

Ask any car engineer what's the biggest variable in achieving fuel economy targets, and he'll tell you "the driver." If one human can't understand human driving behavior enough to be certain about an innocuous number like miles per gallon, how is an autonomous car supposed to figure out what hundreds of other drivers are going to do in the course of a day? Ford has enlisted the help of Stanford and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to find out.
Starting with the automated Fusion Hybrid introduced in December, MIT will be developing algorithms that driverless cars can use to "predict actions of other vehicles and pedestrians" and objects within the three-dimensional map provided by its four LIDAR sensors.
The Stanford team will research how to extend the 'vision' of that LIDAR array beyond obstructions while driving, analogous to the way a driver uses the entire width of a lane to see what's ahead of a larger vehicle in front. Ford says it wants to "provide the vehicle with common sense" as part of its Blueprint for Mobility, preparing for an autonomous world from 2025 and beyond.

Ford to auction Mustang Cobra Jet prototype for charity [w/video]

Mon, 16 Sep 2013 10:30:00 EST

Prototypes developed by major automakers typically remain in said company's custody, but every once in a while, one trickles out into private hands. And that's just what we have here. Ford is donating a one-of-a-kind factory prototype for the 2014 Mustang Cobra Jet that will be auctioned off later this month by Barrett-Jackson in Las Vegas to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 mated to a T4 competition gearbox, this rare Cobra Jet prototype includes a wheelie bar, chromoly roll cage, Weld wheels, three-link rear suspension, racing brakes, 9-inch rear axle and more. It's painted in a unique satin orange with reflective gray striping scheme, bears the serial number 2014 BJMS CJXX1 and is fully ready for NHRA competition on the drag strip.
To be offered with no reserve on Saturday, September 28, 2013, the Cobra Jet prototype's winning bidder will also receive tutelage at Roy Hill's Drag Racing School in Sophia, NC, along with tours of the Ford Product Development Center, Ford Racing headquarters and Ford Design Studios with Mustang chief engineer Dave Pericak. Scope out the video and details below for what could be the ultimate Mustang experience for a good cause.
