 1962 Mercury Comet Custom Wagon
One Family Owned for Over 47 years

This car was sold new at Foothill Motors in Pasadena CA on Jan 20th 1962. The base price was $2772 and the options were Merc-o-matic, Padded dash, Full wheel covers, passenger mirror, Electric tailgate window, Backup lights, Push button radio, tinted glass. The car was bought as a regular family car but always taken great care of and parked in the garage.

Then in Feb 1975 the car was upgraded with a new engine. A 1966 289 with only 24,000 miles, shelby solid cam, c8zz ford intake and a holly 600 carb, a  C4 PEE transmission and a 1957 9" rearend was installed. Car was updated to 5 lug front & rear as well as upgrading to 14" wheels and full wheelcovers. And the car always looked just like it did originally....stock

This car was kept in the same family till I bought the car in 2010. Since than I have installed new tires, even a new spare, a complete new duel exhaust system with flowmaster mufflers (sounds great) new Alternator, new plugs, new wires, carb was rebuilt, valves adjusted, new fuel filter, new front brake drums, brake shoes. All with receipts. 

I have the original sales order & all paperwork & receipts showing owner and trade in, most every registration since new. I even have the original black CA licence plates along with Foothill motors license frames. Also included is a full car cover.

The car shows 49,492 miles which I was told is original to the car.

The body has no rust, other then a little surface you can see in the picture where I lifted up the factory rubber mat in the rear. The color is original as well as all the interior. As it was a family car and used it does have normal chips and wear around the car, chrome/stainless is bright and shiny, rear bumper does have a dent, all the windows and locks work, wipers work, windshield does have one rock chip, heater works, all lights and blinkers work, rear power tailgate window works from dash switch but not from key switch, the old tach works sometimes and the radio lights up but does not play music. The rear seat folds down flat for hauling lots a stuff and three seat belts were added to the rear to match the front (kinda odd front seats came with belts but none for the kids in the back) I also have the original gun sight spears for the tops of the front fenders.

 This is a great family cruiser that seems to make everyone smile as you drive by.

The reserve price is more then fair for such a rare classic Mercury Wagon in this shape

Report: Lincoln getting all of Mercury's ad dollars

Mon, 03 Jan 2011 11:01:00 EST

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."

Translogic drives wood-burning Mercury Beaver XR-7

Sun, 31 Jul 2011 18:29:00 EST

You read the title right, we're talking about the Mercury Beaver XR-7. No, Mercury never officially built a car called the beaver. This is the brainchild of upstate New Yorker Chip Beam, who owns and operates Beaver Energy, LLC. It runs on gases created by wood pellets fermented in a 2,400-degree furnace and fed to a supercharged Ford 4.6-liter V8.
By all accounts, it gets down the road just fine, and has pretty close to full power. The best part is, you can grow the fuel yourself and avoid patronizing big oil, if that's your thing. The only drawback that we can see to the Mercury Beaver XR-7 is the PVC pipe jungle occupying the space that would be the trunk under normal circumstances.
Still, if you're willing to smell like a mountain man and look like a bad Back to the Future knockoff, this ride is right up your alley. Click past the jump to see Translogic's take on this modified Merc.

Kit Cat: Mercury Cougar makes perfect Bugatti Veyron substitute

Bugatti Veyron kit car - Click above for high-res image gallery
If you've got a pulse in your wrist and a snapping brain cell in your head, chances are you wouldn't mind parking a Bugatti Veyron in your garage. But for most mere mortals, scrounging up the cash for a physics-bending piece of 16-cylinder glory would require all sorts of unpalatable tasks. Fortunately for those who want to look the part without having to participate in human trafficking, the kit car universe has stepped in to save the day. All you need is a 1999-2002 Mercury Cougar, a boat load of fiberglass and a little patience.
Oh, and $89,000.
