Ford executive intervened in Daytona squabble among drivers

Ford executive intervened in Daytona squabble among drivers A week after Daytona disappointment, Ford celebrated the first Cup win for the Mustang.

Yes, the lights and sirens actually work.

While there are plenty of cool Galaxies out there to collect, this 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Mayberry Police Car is probably the most unique of the bunch. Customized to look like what Andy Griffith and his small police force drove, this is the kind of car that will really draw looks of amazement and throngs of admirers no matter where you choose to take it.

Ford GT Attempts Top Speed Run On 2.7 Mile Track

Ford GT Attempts Top Speed Run On 2.7 Mile Track Just how close can an average Joe with a Ford GT get to the advertised 216 mile per hour top speed? Ford's quoted top speed for the Ford GT supercar is 216 miles per hour. Just how close can you get to that speed in the real world under normal conditions? Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds posted this video on their YouTube channel so that we could find out. The proving grounds in question, at least what we can see from this video, appear to be an extra-long airport runway. On a gloomy, cloudy day, they tested a 2017 Ford GT to see what kind of numbers it can put down on a 2.7 mile straightaway.

The black-and-white paint scheme, sheriff’s star on the front doors, huge CB antenna, plus the large gumball light attached to the roof make this an unmistakable replica of the beloved television show’s police cruisers. This car also has all those fun styling details which ruled American car design in the early 1960s, including afterburner taillights, a super wide grille, smooth lines everywhere you look.

Not only is the exterior in excellent shape, the tan interior looks immaculate. Either the upholstery, carpeting, and other materials are original, or someone went to great lengths to recreate what Ford used for the 1962 model year. Everything on the dash, door panels, and steering wheel is functional and whole, so there’s nothing which looks out of place or incomplete in this cruiser. There are retro switches for the lights and sirens, as well as a Motorola radio and functional spotlight, just in case.

Sure, the classic looks of this Ford Galaxie 500 is great, but it’s also a fun car to drive. A 292ci V8 is great for a pursuit situation, although in Mayberry that’s likely only reserved for getting home to supper on time after a long shift. Under the hood is quite presentable, complete with freshly-painted orange engine block, air topper, and valve covers. The three-speed automatic transmission makes driving this classic easy, while an aluminum radiator means you can lead the Fourth of July parade and not have to worry about overheating the engine.

Streetside Classics is offering the ultra-unique chance to own this highly collectible, nostalgic-filled ’62 Ford Galaxie 500 Mayberry Police Car.

The Original Ford Mustang Was a Surprisingly Practical Sports Car.
Back in the day, your Mustang had to be practical as well as stylish. The original Mustang was a sports car for the masses, and Ford sold them by the millions. One reason why: it was actually quite the practical car, as this in-period advertising film shows. This two-minute ad, uploaded to the Ford Heritage channel on YouTube, details some of the useful features of the new-for-'65 2+2 Mustang coupe. One of the coolest pieces of engineering is the rear seat area, which, when not in use, can fold down on itself and create a surprisingly large, flat storage area.
