This one here is for all you Ford fanatics that have been looking to go back to the days when vehicles were manufactured for comfort and reliability. It's my pristine, pappy 1-Owner 1989 LTD Crown Vic 5.0L V8 time capsule with just 56,000 original barn stored miles. Complete with an original title and all the books to go with it.
Mechanically this car runs strong. Motor fires up without hesitation and sounds healthy through all the RPM's. Transmission shifts beautifully through all the gears with no funny shifts or slipping. Tires are like new Michelins with about 95% tread left. Drives well down the road. Steering feels good. A/C is ice cold. Has power seats, windows, locks and premium sound system. Fresh oil change done recently. Just an all around pure peach mechanically that has been well cared for over the years.
Cosmetically it's just as nice. Paint shines like new in the sun with no dry spots or sun damage anywhere and is all original. Body is nice and straight with no door dings. Has a little scuff on the front bumper that has been touched up about an inch long. Absolutely no rust anywhere on the car. Underneath is pristine. Under the hood and inside the trunk lid look great. This is literally a pappy owned car that has been preserved in a barn for years. Vinyl top is in great shape with no tears or discoloration. Interior is as fresh as they come. No tears or stains to note. Hasn't been smoked in.
Overall this is a true survivor of the old Crown Vics with the ultra reliable 5.0L V8 motor and it definitely shows. It has been meticulously preserved for the next Ford die hard to enjoy for years to come. If you have any questions please feel free to give me a call at 717-823-3349. My name is Zach. If you would like to have the privilege of seeing this rare peach in person please call and make an appointment. Keep in mind that although this is a very clean and beautiful car, it is a 1989 and not a 2015. A $500 non refundable deposit is due at the end of the auction. This car is being sold by Platinum Car and Truck Sales, LLC in Elizabethtown, PA.

Whether fitted with soft or hard folding lids, today's droptops are better than ever for year-round motoring. Advancements in power top mechanisms, sealing, aerodynamics, structural rigidity, rollover safety and creature comforts like heated and cooled seats mean that modern convertibles are more versatile and better to drive than ever before. Yet the segment's sales took a dive during the recession and haven't come back, Automotive News reports.
Part of that is because automakers are looking at today's more sensible buyers and simply not developing as many new models, and that lack of fresh iron is curbing sales. AN cites R.L. Polk data which notes that only about one percent of new vehicles registered in the US last year had tops that folded. Back in 2009, it was 1.4 percent, and it was 2 percent in 2006. All-in, some 151,636 convertibles were registered in 2012. That's more units more than were registered in each of the past three years, but the market has also grown as the economy has picked up speed, and as a percentage of new vehicles purchased, convertible sales are lagging.
Thus far in 2013, the Ford Mustang is America's top-selling convertible, with 6,421 units registered through the end of April, followed by its rival, the Chevrolet Camaro, at 4,751 units. The Volkswagen Beetle isn't far behind, with 4,305, but from that point, it's a steep drop off to the fourth-place Mercedes-Benz SL-Class and its 2,380 sales.
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.
Now that we're getting a steady stream of Ford's European offerings, the aftermarket world is finally starting to catch up as well. UK-based aftermarket tuning company, Mountune has just announced that it will be setting up shop in California to provide high-performance and racing parts for Ford vehicles including the Focus ST and Fiesta ST.
Mountune lays claim to being Ford's "official European tuning partner," and US buyers will soon have access to these parts through Ford dealerships and with a Ford Racing warranty. Speaking of Ford Racing, Mountune also says that it will be working with Ford's in-house team to develop future components for both street and track. There are no specifics as of yet for which products will be offered here, but the company plans to launch a US-specific website later this month with more information.
