1966 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 up for sale after 40 years in storage

Posted by on May 5, 2016 in Auto News | Comments Off on 1966 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 up for sale after 40 years in storage

By Noah Joseph Published May 04, 2016 Facebook1028 Twitter0 Email Print  (Bonhams) Dreaming of picking up a classic Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, but can’t afford the lofty price? Early models are selling for well over $200,000 these days, but this one is expected to go for far less. This Shelby-tuned Mustang fastback was originally used for demonstration and competition, logging 55,000 miles over the course of a decade before being put into storage in 1976. There it has sat ever since – in apparently less than optimal conditions, judging by the state of the vehicle. That could make this a steal for someone with the time and resources to undertake a restoration – or for someone who really, really loves a good patina. More from Autoblog: Lamborghini-powered Batmobile Ford F-150 Raptor conquers desert LaFerrari Spider confirmed It’s only had one owner, who never told anyone about it, which (as anyone could tell you) is the best way to keep a secret. Classic racing enthusiasts may be particularly enticed by its “carryover” status: though the car incorporates many of the upgrades applied to the ’66 model, its VIN 6S163 is from ’65. That means that it just makes the cutoff for the 1965-and-older class at many vintage motorsports events. Bonhams expects it to sell for...

Ford F-150 gets highest rating in new insurance crash tests

Posted by on Apr 18, 2016 in Auto News | Comments Off on Ford F-150 gets highest rating in new insurance crash tests

Published April 12, 2016 Associated Press Facebook1155 Twitter94 Email Print  (IIHS) The 2016 Ford F-150 is the only full-size pickup truck to score the top rating in new front crash tests performed by the insurance industry. Rival pickups from Chevrolet, GMC, Ram and Toyota didn’t fare as well, according to results released Tuesday by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The institute evaluated 2016 models in a small overlap crash test, which replicates what happens when a vehicle runs off the road and a portion of its front end hits a tree or a pole at 40 miles per hour. The tests evaluated both crew cab and extended cab versions of each truck, since those are the most popular body styles. A crew cab has four full doors and two full rows of seating. An extended cab has two full front doors, two small rear doors and smaller second-row seats. The institute also evaluated different body styles because past tests have shown varying results. In tests last year, the 2015 F-150 SuperCab — the extended cab version of the F-150 — lacked some of the structural elements of the larger F-150 SuperCrew so it got lower safety ratings. Ford responded by adding reinforcements to the 2016 SuperCab, including high-strength steel tubes in the wheel wells and aluminum rocker...

Posted by on Mar 12, 2016 in Auto News | Comments Off on The Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew is ready to roll over just about anything

By Gary Gastelu Published January 18, 2016 FoxNews.com Facebook2849 Twitter0 livefyre39 Email Print  (Ford) Ford may want to think about making a four-door Mustang Shelby. The F-150 Raptor pickup was the best-selling vehicle produced by the Ford Performance division (then-known as SVT,) when it went on hiatus at the end of 2014. At that time, the SuperCrew model accounted for 80 percent of its sales, despite the trimmer SuperCab, with its small rear-access doors, being a more fitting configuration...
