                                                       1956 Mercury Phaeton

   What we have up for auction is a 1956 Mercury Phaeton
owned by a buddy of mine. I'm listing this car for him. He has too many cars and needs to make some room.  It has
a 312 cubic inch Y-Block engine, believed to be the original from he was told. He bought it from the widow of a
gentlemen that had passed away. He had owned it for quite sometime. He had it painted a long time ago, we don't know the time period but we assume probably 20 yrs. It still looks good even though it does has some chips
and some wear on edges. The interior has a set of covers
over the original seats. He hasn't taken them off to look or
check it out. The door panels are in good condition along
with the headliner. Carpet looks good also. The trunk is
solid. The chrome shows some age but not bad.The motor
runs and starts real nice. Never fails to start hot or cold.
Doesn't overheat, trans shifts nice. It drives real good, you can drive it anywhere. All the lights work, heater works real
good. It has just had new tires,wheel cylinders and brake
hoses installed. New mufflers for the dual exhaust. It's just a real good driver and cruise-in car. There were only 23,493 Mercury Phaeton's made in 1956. The phaeton was the top of the line for the 4dr cars. This color combo of Salmon and white looks real nice on this car with all the
trim a Mercury has. It really catches your eye going down the road. Most people don't notice it is a 4dr with it not
having a post between the doors. It's priced fair so bid to
own.

Ford recalling 370,000 Crown Vic, Grand Marquis and Town Car models

Fri, 30 Aug 2013 13:00:00 EST

The Detroit News is reporting that Ford will recall some 370,000 Crown Victoria (pictured), Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car vehicles from model years 2005 through 2011, for an issue regarding the lower intermediate steering shaft. 355,000 of the vehicles in question were sold in the US, with the other 15,000 sold in Canada.
The report indicates that corrosion of the lower intermediate steering shaft could cause a "loss of steering," presumably because of a partial or complete failure of the part. The report points out the dealers will inspect and replace the offending steering component for recalled cars, and may also secure a lower steering column bearing and replace the upper intermediate steering shaft as needed. The company is unaware of any reports of the faulty part causing any accidents or injuries.
Ford helpfully lists states in which corrosion is more likely to have taken place, mostly in the Snow Belt, as you might guess. Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia are listed.

NHTSA and Ford investigating steering issues in Crown Vic, Grand Marquis and Marauder

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 18:29:00 EST

There may be more steering woes for the Ford Crown Victoria. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened a preliminary evaluation into the Crown Vic and Mercury Grand Marquis from the 2004 to 2007 model years and the Mercury Marauder for the 2004 and 2005 model years because the steering shaft can jam. The issue could potentially affect an estimated 500,000 vehicles.
According to the regulator, there is a possibility that the driver's side heat shield for the exhaust manifold can rust, dislodge, and then wedge into the steering shaft. If this occurs, it leads to a situation where the driver can no longer control the car.
NHTSA has received five complaints of this happening, including one alleged case with an injury. In that situation, the car was driving onto the highway, lost control and rolled over. One occupant was hurt in the accident.

Jill Wagner retired as Mercury spokeswoman

Wed, 17 Nov 2010 16:20:00 EST

Jill Wagner has officially given up her crown as the queen of Mercury. With the Ford middle child on its way to the scrap heap, Wagner no longer has any automotive hardware to promote. Given her varied talents, we wouldn't be surprised to see her pick up where she left off with another automaker.
And here you thought you'd never be upset about Mercury's passing.
Thanks for the tip, Gregg!
