 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

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.

Ford recalling 126,000 Fusions and Milans over wheel separation concern

Fri, 09 Dec 2011 11:02:00 EST

Ford has announced a recall of certain Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan vehicles after an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A total of 128,616 2010 and 2011 models equipped with steel wheels may have been manufactured with wheel studs that could crack and split over time. If that happens, the vehicle may experience a wheel separation.
According to The Detroit News, the company is aware of a total of 30 wheel separation incidents, one of which occurred on the front of the vehicle. Even so, no injuries have been reported as a result of the defect.
The problem apparently stems from the fact that the mounting pads on the vehicles' steel wheels may have been faulty from the factory. In addition, the wheel mounting face on rear disc brakes may not have been installed properly. Ford will inspect the rear disc face and replace them as necessary. In addition, the company will replace all of the vehicle's wheel studs free of charge. Head to the NHTSA website for more information, and click past the jump to view the full recall notice.

Automakers tussle over owners of 'orphan' makes

Thu, 10 May 2012 08:29:00 EST

When General Motors put down several of its brands in recent years, it also let loose thousands of brand-loyal customers who will eventually need another car.
R.L. Polk Associates estimates there are more than 18 million cars from 16 discontinued makes on the road today. Those "orphan owners" have sales-hungry competitors seeing dollar signs. GM is offering Saturn owners $1,000 cash toward a Chevy Cruze, Cadillac CTS or a GMC Acadia. Ford is giving its Mercury lease customers a chance to get out of their contracts with no early-termination penalty and offering to waive six remaining payments if they drive off in a Ford or Lincoln.
Edmunds.com research shows the efforts are paying off somewhat for GM, with 39 percent of Pontiac owners, 37 percent of Hummer owners and 31 percent of Saturn owners taking delivery of another GM-branded vehicle. But that leaves as much as 69 percent of owners going elsewhere. Ford, Honda and Toyota seem to be attracting many former GM owners.
