1957 Farmall 350 Diesel Restoration
This is a visual representation of what I did to restore a 1957 Farmall 350 Diesel for a FFA project. This tractor was manufactured on or around December 17th, 1957. I worked on this project in an independent Ag class in school, and throughout the summer. I placed 1st at the Iowa State Fair in the original tractor restoration class. If you have any questions, I would be glad to answer any! Thanks for watching!
Corvair in Action 1960 General Motors 7min

"Promotional film for the controversial Chevrolet Corvair."
Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied.
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
The Chevrolet Corvair was a compact automobile produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors for the 1960--1969 model years. It was the only American-made, mass-produced passenger car to feature a rear-mounted air-cooled engine.
The Corvair range included two-door coupe and convertible, four-door sedan, and four-door station wagon configurations, included the more powerful Monza model -- and included passenger van, commercial van, and pickup derivatives. The range competed with imported cars such as the original Volkswagen Beetle, as well as the Ford Falcon and the Plymouth Valiant, new entries in a market segment that was established in the U.S. by the Nash and Rambler American.
The Corvair's legacy was affected by controversy surrounding its handling, which led to its inclusion in Ralph Nader's Unsafe at Any Speed. Nonetheless a subsequent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) study concluded that the car's handling was as safe as that of its contemporaries.
The Corvair name originated for a 1954 Corvette fastback show car. The car's development was directed by Ed Cole, holding chief engineer and general manager positions at Chevrolet during the 1950s. It was General Motors' response to the growing popularity of small, lightweight imported cars such as the original Volkswagen Beetle, as well as to compete with domestic-built compact cars, the Rambler American and Studebaker Lark. The "compact" term was coined by George W. Romney as a euphemism for small cars with a wheelbase of 110 inches (2,794 mm) or less. The Corvair's design began in 1956 with the first vehicles rolling off the assembly line in late 1959 for the 1960 model year. The car was introduced October 2, 1959 initially as a four-door sedan offered in two trim levels. Two Corvairs were tested at the Riverside International Raceway in California, for 24 hours. One car rolled over, but the other completed the drive consuming only one quart (0.95 L) of oil.
The Corvair's sales exceeded 200,000 for each of its first six model years. The rear engine design offered packaging and economy advantages, providing the car with a lower silhouette, flat passenger compartment floor, removing the need for power assists, and offering improvements in ride quality, traction, and braking balance. The different design also attracted customers from other makes, primarily imports. The Corvair stood out with engineering significantly different from other American offerings. It was part of GM's Y-body ("Z"-Body from 1965 on) line of cars, with design and engineering that advanced the rear-engine, rear-wheel drive layout pioneered by cars including the Tucker Torpedo, Porsche 356, Volkswagen Beetle, Renault Dauphine, and NSU Prinz—and employed by the concurrent and short-lived Hino Contessa.
The Corvair's powerplant is an aluminum air-cooled 140 cu in (2.3 L) flat-six (Later enlarged, first to 145 and then to 164 cubic inches). The first Corvair engine produced 80 hp (60 kW; 81 PS). Power peaked with the 1965--66 turbocharged 180 hp (134 kW; 182 PS) Corsa engine option. The first generation model's swing axle rear suspension, invented and patented by engineer Edmund Rumpler, offered a comfortable ride but raised safety concerns associated with the car's handling stability, and was replaced in 1965 with a fully independent rear suspension similar to the Corvette Sting Ray.
The Corvair represented several breakthroughs in design for mass-produced Detroit vehicles with 1,786,243 cars produced between 1960 and 1969...
The Corvair spawned a number of innovative concept vehicles including the Corvair SS, Monza GT, Monza SS, Astro I, and even two Carrozzeria Pininfarina "Corvair Speciale" show cars and the Testudo, designed by Carrozeria Bertone.
The Chevrolet Corvair Monza GT coupe toured together with the Monza SS (Spyder) in early 1963, making a further public appearance at the New York Auto Show. Although both cars were based on the Corvair drive train, each represented a futuristic development of the adaptable Corvair design. In the SS convertible, the engine (with a four-carburetor setup) was left in its stock location behind the transaxle, allowing a shorter (88 in (2,200 mm)) wheelbase. Although the SS came very close to production, both cars remained concepts only. The Monza GT is housed at the GM's Heritage Center in Detroit...

132887 / 1965 Ford Falcon Futura
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/87wdldx
If you're looking for a fun classic that is as unique as it is cool, this impressive '65 Ford is the incredible value you've been waiting for!
When this striking Futura rolled into our showroom, one thing was immediately apparent. The quality of its restoration is top notch in every way; and whoever spent the time hammering its solid body back into shape has either spent most of their adult life in a body shop or restored more than their fair share of second generation Falcons. From the top of its smooth roof to the bottom of its cool Turquoise body, this car is much straighter than when it rolled out of Ford's Lorain, Ohio manufacturing facility and features a great looking coat of urethane paint which displays virtually no flaws.
The car's reliable but basic 6-cylinder engine was swapped for a larger 351 Cleveland four valve V8 that looks great covered in a thick coat of traditional Ford Blue paint. And its clean engine bay was fitted with an assortment of dress up pieces, which range from gray hood hardware to polished stainless fuel lines, and then refinished in the same slick Turquoise urethane as its glossy exterior panels. The 351 gets its air and fuel from an Offenhauser aluminum intake which props a Holley 4-barrel carburetor below a chrome topped, satin black dual snorkel air cleaner. Fire is provided by a traditional points distributor that sends spark through eight Autolite Pro Fit premium plug wires which snake around finned aluminum Ford Racing valve covers. And cooling is provided by a Northern aluminum radiator which is complete with both a polished cap and a polished overflow tank.
Motivation is provided by a reliable Ford C6 3-speed automatic transmission and a traditional Ford nine inch rear end. Steering is provided by a traditional manual rack which gives the car a unique, vintage feel. And braking is provided by a combination of manual front discs and manual rear drums which do an excellent job of providing fade free, drama free stops. Keeping the car firmly planted on the pavement is a nice set of Halibrand 15 inch Five Spoke wheels which ride on 195/65 Hankook radials up front, and 215/70 Cordovan Centron radials out back. And overall, the bottom of this Falcon presents very well with solid floors that display no signs of rust, a straight frame that shows no indication of damage, and a slew of road ready parts that all function just as they should.
This cool Falcon's tasteful and comfortable two-tone blue interior is a classy reminder of the days when style and appeal were the central focus of automotive design. At the front of the car, rebuilt factory gauges ride inside a fully restored dash which hangs pristine stainless trim above a set of modern, chrome trimmed auxiliary gauges and a chrome shifter that's complete with an awesome piston shift knob. At the sides of the car, great looking two-tone door panels wrap like-new vinyl around restored, stainless trimmed armrests, fresh chrome handles for the doors and windows and correct chrome emblems. And in the middle of the car, completely rebuilt and recovered two-tone blue bench seats provide the perfect spot for main street cruise nights. In front of those seats, a correctly restored steering wheel holds a chrome horn button above a chrome turn signal stalk and a large, column mounted Sunpro tachometer. Below the seats, excellent looking dark blue carpet rides under color-matched floor mats. And above the seats a like-new tan headliner leads the eye from chrome A-pillar covers and a flame embossed rearview mirror to a straight and fade-free package tray which hangs two speakers over a fully restored trunk.
Solid, well-done early 60s metal like this doesn't come along too often, and given the attention it draws in our showroom, it won't last long either! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this awesome car!
A RESTORED 1959 EDSEL
In the model year of 1958 Ford Motor launched a new car named after Henry Ford's son, Edsel. Ford Co., thought there was a niche to fill between the Ford car and the next model level Mercury. They thought wrong. There were several reasons for the failure of Edsel, one being it's different if not bizarre styling featuring a " horse collar" grill. Another reason was that there was no niche to fill between Ford and Mercury. Edsel used a lot of Mercury parts so it appeared to be a lower scale Mercury than a upper scale Ford. The economic recession of 1958 also helped to kill sales of the introductory year. This video gives you a tour of a restored 1959 Edsel. The styling was less severe than the fifty eight model year and looks more appealing but it didn't encourage sales for the damaged image was already there. This Edsel is the lower model Ranger. Under the hood lies the six cyclinder Ford engine with dual Exhaust. The exterior paint on this car is excellent while the interior uphostery is not original or authentic but looks great. The bottom line Ranger cost $3,072 and sold 7,778 units out of a model year total of 44,891.
The two model years did nothing to increase sales and the 1960 model year was a tacky version of a Ford of which the Ranger model sold 295 two doors at $2,705, and 1,288 four doors at $2697. So, Ranger model totals for 1960 were 1,583. Edsel was cancelled in November '59 after only making 110,847 for the three model years.
