1950 Mercury Convertible "Lead Rag"
After nearly ten years of enjoyment, it's time for me to sell my all time favorite car. This is possibly the chance of a lifetime to own a real 1950 Mercury Convertible that has all the cool custom touches of only the best Lead Sleds. I call her the Lead Rag, which stands for Lead Sled Rag Top. She's been in magazines, won lots of top trophies and given me hours of great times. She is a driver too, this is no trailer queen you can drive her anywhere you want.

Here's a partial list of options:
Chopped top convertible with Haartz canvas top and boot cover and yes it works.
351 W Ford engine with AOD trans and a 9" Lincoln rear end.
4 wheel disk brakes, Fat Man front end, A/C, cruiser skirts, 
Ground effect lights under the car, Dual exhaust with Flame Throwers and 4 link Air Ride suspension by the Bagman.
53 DeSoto grille, 57 Caddie hubcaps and air cleaner
59 Caddie taillights, dual electric antennas and they are all frenched in.
Custom paint with multi-color flames and awesome pin stripping by "Styles".
Full leather interior, including the trunk.

    NHTSA investigating 725k Ford, Mercury vehicles for stalling issue

    Mon, 25 Feb 2013 17:31:00 EST

    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.

    NHTSA probing 2000-2003 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable models over throttle issue

    Mon, 29 Oct 2012 11:01:00 EST

    A potential issue with the speed control cable collar has got the 2003-20003 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable under the spotlight of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. If the collar breaks it can cause the throttle to be stuck open.
    The issue is limited to vehicles with the 3.0-liter V6 Duratec. There are just 50 complaints so far out of 310,000 cars, but the NHTSA has begun an investigation into whether a recall should be issued.

    Ford recalls Five Hundred, Mercury Montego sedans over fuel tank woes

    Mon, 18 Jul 2011 08:59:00 EST

    Ford has announced through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it is recalling nearly 3,000 examples of its Five Hundred and Mercury Montego (pictured) sedans from the 2007 model year.
    The action, which affects 2,945 vehicles, is due to potentially defective welds between the filler neck and the fuel tank, a condition that could result in a fuel leak or the smell of gasoline reaching the occupants. In the worst-case scenario, a leak could cause a fire. Cars with the affected fuel tank problem could see an illuminated dashboard warning light as a result of the evaporative emissions leak being detected.
    Ford will inspect and replace the fuel tank at no cost to owners (those who have already had the procedure done at-cost can apply for reimbursement), and the Dearborn automaker will begin notifying Five Hundred and Montego owners beginning August 15. Check out the official NHTSA press release after the jump for further details.
