By 1914 Ford had 48% of the US market share. That's because they were cheap and could be repaired with baling wire and chewing gum. But with so many people owning Fords, and men being boys, racing was bound to occur in a run-what-you-brung manor. But some of the men/boys were tired of losing to rich peoples cars with a lot more power.

Capitol Engine works primary business was converting airplane engines for boats, but they would put some pep in your Ford if you could A-Ford it.

80 to 100 years ago urban parking garages with car elevators were all the rage.
More cars parked in the space available meant bigger profits.
But some times the cars fa down go boom. :rolleyes:

My father was in the parking business. His company bought a pigeon hole garage in Philly that one end was not used. The track that the car elevator ran on was slightly higher on that end. Otis elevator leveled the track and Square Parking made a profit. Pigeon hole garages were a pain, because when the elevator broke down customers couldn't get their cars. Square Parking was sold in the 90's. They were wonderful employers and I made a lot of money with them.

Was that just a concept car? Looks pretty slick, except for the tilt up entry.

xoxoxoBruce 06-17-2017 10:55 PM

Yes. It looks awfully big to be built on a '63 Falcon wagon chassis, they were small.

that's weird.

the number of windows in the two photos is different. Where's the window behind the driver window that's visible in the first photo? I can't find it in the second photo.

BigV is right, those are two different cars. I call shenanigans.

Show car, work is progress as they moved from big show to big show, sometimes for two or three years. Often the color would be changed for each appearance.

If that bitch is gonna sit on the roof I'm takin' the side window out.

they make regular and super cab trucks. super cab models have a jumper seat behind the driver's seats. it's just 2 variations. why is that shenanigans?


I stand corrected. the cab converts.


The unique show vehicle in the F-250 class features a custom designed passenger compartment that expands at the push of a button from a pickup to a two-door sedan accommodating two additional passengers in the rear compartment.

When a four-passenger sedan is desired, a switch on the master control is activated and the rear portion of the cab moves 18 inches in to the bed of the truck, a roof section moves up into position and two additional bucket seats fall into place.

Thanks for the link Jim, that says a full sized wagon chassis not a Falcon like where I found the picture.

The regular to king cab conversion is interesting. With as many cross over trucks like the Avalanche and the Ridgeline, you'd think somebody would have tried to market that gimmick.
