STAINLESS STEEL FORDS

www.atimetals.com/businesses/business-units/ludlum/about/Pages/History-of-the-Stainless-Steel-Car.aspx


1936 Stainless Steel Ford- A MUST READ! This is the 1936 Ford Tudor Sedan built for and owned by Allegheny Ludlum Steel. This is 1 of only 4 in existence and is the only one currently in running & in road worthy condition. The car is in exceptional condition, with the interior and even the frame looking great. All 4 cars each had over 200,000 miles on them before they removed them from service. These cars were built for Allegheny as promotional and marketing projects. The top salesmen each year were given the honor of being able to drive them for one year. The v-8 engine (max 85 hp) ran like a sewing machine and was surprisingly smooth and quiet. I thought this was a much better looking automobile than the Ford Thunderbird that visited us last year. FYI, the car was insured (we were told) for the trip to Louisville via covered trailer for 1.5 million dollars. We were also told that the dies were ruined by stamping the stainless car parts,making these the last of these cars ever produced.

Secrets of the F150

Secrets of the F-150: Five things you didn't know about Ford popular pickup By: B. Mitchell Carlson The F-150 has been the best-selling pickup truck in the U.S. since 1978. Yes, 36 years that longer than a lot of you reading this have been alive. However, there are a few things about Ford's popular pickup that most people don't know about. Here are five of them: Earliest Ford pickup wasn't an F-series. Although Ford offered delivery-bodied cars sporadically since 1905 and one-ton trucks since 1917, its first factory-assembled pickup was built on April 15, 1925. The 33,795 1925 model T runabouts with pickup body sold for $281. Why it was called the F-150. The earliest use of the F-series name dates to the all-new 1948 Ford trucks, the half-ton model being the F-1. Ford made the jump to the F-100 name in 1953, but the F-150 nomenclature didn't arrive until 1975. Why? This was a model that debuted to evade emissions requirements, as it was essentially a heavy half pickup rated at just over 6,000 pounds gross weight the line in the sand drawn by the EPA at the time, which required catalytic converters and subsequently unleaded gasoline. International Harvester also did this for 1975 its final year of pickup production making all half-ton 100 models 150s, to avoid installing catalytic converters. The final year of the F-100 was 1983 by which time leaded vs. unleaded was a moot point. We believe that every classic car has a story. Tell us yours here. Built all over North America, then there were two. When introduced for 1948, The F-1 was built at all 16 U.S. assembly plants that also built Ford cars. In 1956, with trucks becoming more specialized along with the opening of the Detroit Truck Plant, Ford started consolidating truck production to fewer plants. Beginning in the late 1970 Ford split its North American assembly groups into car and truck. Today, only two plants build all F-150 globally the Kansas City Assembly Plant in suburban Claycomo, Mo., and the Dearborn Truck Plant near Dearborn, Mich. Off-white or chrome? The longest-running component that was constantly used on every single pickup and remained unchanged during the F-series era was the front bumper from 1959 to 1979. Classic Trucks In The Movies And TV I guess he liked it. Sam Walton, founder of Walmart and one of the richest men in America, drove the same 1979 F-150 Custom 4x4 to work every day until he died in 1992. When asked why in an interview, he stated What am I supposed to haul my dogs around in, a Rolls-Royce Today it can be seen enshrined in the company visitor center / museum in Bentonville, Ark.
