Ranch Wagon
Chassis Num: E7RS146914
 
Sold for $77,000 at 2010 RM Auctions.
For 1957, Ford introduced its all-new models, which wore all-new 'Equaflair' styling by George W. Walker. They were longer and lower than ever before, with styling that incorporated a full-width rectangular grille, bright accents and a pair of tailfins or 'high-canted' rear fenders, as Ford described them.

The 1957 Ford Station Wagon was offered in five body styles in two- and four-door form and three levels of trim, mirroring the Custom, Custom 300 and Fairlane 500 models. Several powertrain options were available from the base-level inline six through the 312 cubic-inch V8 engines. For those individuals seeking even more style and performance, the sporty two-door Ranch Wagon could be purchased in 1957 with the E-Code 312 cubic-inch V8 which offered 270 horsepower, thanks - in part - to a 9.7:1 compression ratio and a pair of Holley four-barrel carburetors mounted on a special intake manifold.

This 1957 Station Wagon was originally built with the E-Code 312 V8 engine. It was given a complete nut-and-bolt restoration and earned an AACA Junior, Senior and Special National awards. In 2007, the car was acquired by the O'Quinn collection.

The car is finished in red and white two-tone interior with maroon carpets. There is a three-speed manual transmission with overdrive, air conditioning, power steering, a reclining front seat and a Town & Country radio. Exterior features include combination rear-view mirrors with spotlights, full bumper guards, rocker moldings and the 300-level trim package.

Since the restoration, the car has traveled just 102 miles.

In 2010, the car was offered for sale at the Automobiles of Amelia Island sale presented by RM Auctions. As bidding came to a close, the vehicle had been sold for the sum of $77,000 including buyer's premium.

The powerhouse of the 124 model series: A highly sought-after young classic: the Mercedes-Benz 500 E
Anyone in the know will already be slavering at this model designation: launched in 1990, 25 years ago, the Mercedes-Benz 500 E with V8 engine and subtly muscular body is the top-of-the-range model in the 124 model series - and has long been one of the brand's most desirable 'young classic' models. A modest appearance, at first glance – this is one side of the Mercedes-Benz 500 E. Only the somewhat more voluminous wings, the slightly lower body and a modified front apron with inset fog lamps ...[Read more...]

GM'S TONAWANDA PLANT RETOOLED FOR HIGH-TECH ENGINES
BUFFALO, N.Y. – Some of General Motors' advanced manufacturing techniques to produce the all-new, Gen 5 Small Block engine family are microscopic, but they have a huge impact on the 75-year-old Tonawanda Engine Plant, where about 1,500 jobs have been created and retained since 2009.
