You are bidding on a 1956 ford C800 Big Job and a 1990 F5 frame with 460 EFI w/Auto trans. The F5 frame has only 38,000 miles. I was going to build a car hauler but I have to many projects and I don't see myself getting to this in the next two years so it has to go. I bought this truck out of a barn in the state of Oregon. The truck started it's life at lumber yard delivering wood. After 15 years of service one of the employees bought the truck and took it home. He worked on it and fixed it up. For the next 35 years he used it to haul fire wood for his house. The owner fell sick and the truck was parked for 7 years in a large Carport. I purchased the truck a year ago and had it shipped to Michigan. I did nothing to it. Body is very solid. Many of the places that the cabs rot are solid in this cab. The Drip rail is soild and the dog house is solid. The running boards and fenders are solid as is most of the cab. There is rust one area of rust on the passenger side floor board. I have included pictures.
After I found the the Truck I looked for a donor frame and found a 1990 motor home with Air assisted springs and only 38000 miles on it. It has Frame has a air conditioning and cruise control. Disk Breaks on the front and drum breaks in the rear. It is an F5 frame which as far as I can tell means it is F-550 suspension but you might want to double check that. The F5 frame runs the Truck does not. The previous owner told me it ran when he parked it but since I was only going use the cab I never spent any time trying to get it running. You will get the original oregon title for the truck and a bill of sale for the Frame. Good luck bidding on it. I am going to miss her when she is gone.

Ford can't seem to build F-150 SVT Raptors fast enough. The off-road-ready trucks have been one of the Blue Oval's most reliable sellers, with record sales in eight of the last 10 months and a 14-percent jump in 2013. That's impressive enough, considering that the least expensive Raptor starts at $44,000. Factor in the modded F-150's fuel economy (it's rated at 11 miles per gallon in the city and 16 on the highway) and a national average gas price, as of this writing, of $3.55 per gallon, and its success is as unlikely as Ford's home team, the Detroit Lions, winning the Super Bowl this year (sorry, Lions fans, we're just quoting the experts in Vegas...).

Yet for some reason, Raptors spend an average of just 15 days on dealer lots before being snapped up, which is a quarter of the 60-day industry average. According to Ford's truck group marketing manager, Doug Scott, it's capability that keeps the Raptor selling strong. "What's helping drive Raptor sales is that Raptor delivers unmatched off-road performance to our customers. Raptor is also proof of our commitment to offer a truck for every customer and continuously improving them to meet our customers' evolving needs."
To address the strong demand for Raptors, Ford will bump production from three trucks per hour to five. Not much, we agree. But building an extra 48 trucks per day, at most, seems like a prudent way of addressing demand without oversaturating what is ultimately a niche market. Check out the press release below for more.
The Slippery Slope

I've had a healthy appreciation for cars that stop since one truly unfortunate incident with a runaway 1971 Lincoln Continental.
It's funny how quickly a party can turn from, "We're all having blast" to "What happened to the front of the house, and how many stitches do you think this is going to take?" Standing in a Mustang salvage shop in Kodak, Tennessee, I couldn't help but feel I had strayed into the latter territory with Ugly Horse. There was a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 plucked from a rear-ended Cobra sitting off to my left. The shelves were lined with second-hand Roush and SVT components galore, but I couldn't stop staring at a set of rotors with the approximate diameter of my chest.
We've reported on a few R/C car chase videos in the past. One in particular that stands out as a favorite is Zach King's "The Cliché RC Action Chase." It featured a pair of Ford Mustang coupes racing through a cardboard city, plowing into outdoor patios and busting through construction zones. It was wonderfully creative and fun to watch, yet we know there was more to its creation than a bunch of guys fooling around with a camera one afternoon.
Turns out we were right, as evidenced by this video produced by Ford that takes us behind the scenes of Zach's creation. The young filmmaker explains why he chose the Mustang to star in his video, as well as how the cardboard sets were created, what equipment they used for shooting and what it was like when his video went viral. Ford found the young filmmaker and produced the followup as part of its Mustang Countdown video series, which will see a new video about the Mustang culture released every week until the original muscle car's anniversary on April 17, 2014.
Want to make an RC chase video of your own? Yeah, we do too. Watch the behind-the-scenes video below (you can refresh yourself on the mini feature film, too) before you get started.
