Leading the 1970 line were modestly facelifted full-size Fords with «poke-through» center grille sections on LTDs and XLs, plus revamped rear ends on all models. Hidden-headlamp grilles marked the ’68 LTDs and Galaxie XLs as part of a lower-body restyle for all models. The sporty XLs were in their final year. Mid-1970 brought the final Falcons: a stark wagon and two sedans derived from the intermediate Torino (which had evolved from the Fairlane). But unlike Chrysler, Ford retained full-size Customs and Galaxies — a wise move even though Fairlane sold more than 297,000 units its first year and over 300,000 for ’63. At the same time, the Sunliner convertible and Skyliner retractable gained Galaxie rear-fender script (but retained Fairlane 500 ID at the rear). The «500» stood for the 500-mile NASCAR races the division was winning (Ford won every 500 in ’63). Ford had its best NASCAR year ever in 1965, winning 48 of 55 events, including 32 straight at one point. Ford enjoyed its first two-million-car year in 1965, though that was a great year for all domestic automakers.
Kansas Speedway, the newest NASCAR track, opened its gates in June 2001 and hosted its first NASCAR NEXTEL Cup race less than four months later. Underneath was a stronger chassis with a completely new front suspension evolved from NASCAR experience. Please share your Experience and feedback to help others after finding your queries. But in the meantime they left Mozilla and joined Palm to help build their web platform, especially Ares — web-based app builder. Rudy Gobert’s offensive numbers won’t draw any attention his way, but his defensive skills easily make him a star in the league. Draw and cut out a crown pattern from poster board. V-8 choices expanded via two new «FE-series» big-blocks: a 332 offering 240/265 horsepower, and a 300-bhp 352. A deep national recession cut Ford volume to just under 988,000 cars. Ford stubbornly resisted the winds of change, promoting its aging big cars on the basis of greater passenger space and the presumed safety of their «road-hugging weight.» But the public didn’t buy this cynical line — or as many of the cars. The entire Ford line won Motor Trend magazine’s «Car of the Year» award, partly because of the division’s ever-widening «Total Performance» campaign.
Los Angeles would’ve been better off investing that $50 million in Posh’s clothing line. Still, Dearborn was the last of the Big Three to abandon traditional full-size cars — and the first to suffer for it. At decade’s end, it was also selling only about 400,000 more cars per year than in 1960 — despite expansion into important new markets: economy compacts, intermediates, and sportier standard-size models. A conventional suspension and cast-iron six — mostly a 170-cid unit of 101 horsepower — certainly looked dull next to Corvair engineering, but made for friendly, roomy little cars that rode well and delivered 20-25 mpg. This ran on regular gas with a two-barrel carb and delivered 210 bhp; with a four-barrel it made 230 horsepower on premium fuel, though emissions considerations soon put an end to that version. One magazine was actually disappointed when its Cobra ran 0-60 mph in 7.2 seconds and the quarter-mile in 15 seconds at 98.3 miles per hour! Even a relatively mild 390 XL could scale 0-60 mph in 9.3 seconds; a 427 reduced that to just over 7 seconds.
GTs carried a big-block 390 making a potent 335 horsepower. Bored out to 289 cid as a ’63 option, it packed up to 271 horsepower — almost one horsepower per cubic inch. Naturally, only one manufacturer decided this was worth an experiment, and that company was Yamaha, which hired Murray to design the Motiv using this remarkable process. Assuming control of a third-rate company in 1945, they’d turned it into something approaching General Motors in less than 15 years. Think about the technology we use every day compared to 20 years ago: e-mail, instant messaging, pocket cell phones, SMS (text) messaging, PDAs. Perfect for a family tournament on a rainy day!
