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

Now that the curtain has closed on Mercury, Ford Motor Company will redirect all of its marketing dollars for the oft-overlooked brand to the Blue Oval's luxury outpost, Lincoln. In speaking to Automotive News, the chairman of the Lincoln National Dealer Council, Bob Tasca, Jr., said, "You'll see a lot stronger presence in the advertising of Lincoln in 2011."

Lincoln spokesperson Christian Bokich reminded AN that the automaker is "preparing the way for seven new or significantly refreshed vehicles" that will be launched over the next four years, and the largest ad blitz in 2011 will focus on the refreshed MKX crossover, as well as the MKZ sedan and its hybrid counterpart. Following that, Lincoln has plans to launch a completely overhauled version of its Navigator SUV, an all-new C-segment vehicle and the overhauled 2013 MKZ, which Tasca says will be "strikingly different from its Ford Fusion sibling."

Owners of Ford Escape, Mercury Mariner, Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan models, listen up. According to a report on Automotive News, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened an investigation into these four vehicles totaling an estimated 725,000 units. The investigation appears to center around a malfunctioning throttle body on non-hybrid models of the 2005-2012 Escape and 2011-2012 Fusion. With Mercury dying off after the 2011 model year, this probe will also apply to the 2005 through 2011 Mariner and the 2011 Milan. There has been some discussion around the Escape stalling issue for some time now, but this investigation appears to be larger in scope than before.

Though not a recall yet, NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) has received 123 complaints of stalling or surging vehicles, while Ford itself has logged 1,472 complaints. The investigation report, which is posted below, seems to indicate that a faulty circuit board for the throttle body could cause the vehicle to go into limp mode, which, according to NHTSA, could cause complaints of both stalling and surging.
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!
