You are looking and a very nice Street Rod that was built as a street rod and finished in 2000 and titled in 2001. The truck was professionally built with no expense spared. This one of, if not the first, Brookville Roadster Pickup body made. Brookville Roadster is the best all steel maker of 1928-32 Ford bodies. They are made exactly like the originals, with the same thickness steel, and Henry Ford could not tell which is original and that which was made by Brookville. The parts are so exact they are interchangeable with originals. This particular truck was pictured on the front of their sales catalog and transported to many shows around the country to promote sales. The truck at that time was just a well built body and rolling chassis. The truck was sold and the custom build was started. The truck speaks for itself and was built using the finest products and accessories. The truck would cost over $100,000.00 to build today.
I have attached a picture of a current Brookville Roadster Pickup kit to show the basic kit price. Keep in mind the kit price doesn't include fenders, high end components, Motor, transmission,or drive train. As you can see it would be very easy to spend $100,000. I have attached a ton of pictures and a link to a video. The following is an incomplete list I am sure of the major features of the truck:

1932 Roadster Grill, Cowl, and Front Bumper

Minor paint rub on very small area inside door jambs (normal for all model A's and not viewable with doors closed)
The list goes on and on and on and I can't remember it all. I am not going to give this car away.

I will assist with loading for your shipper. I live on a nice road and any size truck can get easily to my front door. I will assist with loading the vehicle for shipping. However I will not take the vehicle to a shipping terminal.
You are welcome to come view the vehicle or have someone come inspect it. I will not however let you or your inspector drive this vehicle. I will take you for a test ride but I have too much money invested to let a stranger drive my truck.
The vehicle has won best in show and its latest win was last week with a top 50 win in a very large 60th anniversary show (2nd place to 50th place received same trophy). I was told I was in the top 10.

Ford has announced through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it is recalling nearly 3,000 examples of its Five Hundred and Mercury Montego (pictured) sedans from the 2007 model year.

The action, which affects 2,945 vehicles, is due to potentially defective welds between the filler neck and the fuel tank, a condition that could result in a fuel leak or the smell of gasoline reaching the occupants. In the worst-case scenario, a leak could cause a fire. Cars with the affected fuel tank problem could see an illuminated dashboard warning light as a result of the evaporative emissions leak being detected.
Ford will inspect and replace the fuel tank at no cost to owners (those who have already had the procedure done at-cost can apply for reimbursement), and the Dearborn automaker will begin notifying Five Hundred and Montego owners beginning August 15. Check out the official NHTSA press release after the jump for further details.
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.
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.
