1964 Mercury Comet 202 on 2040-cars
Lebanon, Indiana, United States
I am selling my 1964 Mercury Comet that I have owned for the past 10 years. It has 77,500 original miles. When I bought the car in June of 2004 it had 57300 miles, as reflected on the title. I have spent countless hours, effort and money to restore. It is in excellent condition. Ready to enjoy, drive, take to shows and be proud of.
This Comet had started its life as a maroon vehicle. But since blue is my favorite color and I grew up in a blue 1964 Comet, the only choice for this one was blue. It was painted in a high quality, base coat clear coat. All panels of this car are incredibly straight (ie... fenders and quarter panels and behind all wheels). There was rust in the floor on the front passenger side that was cut out and metal put back in. All door jams were also painted. Windshield wipers do not work. The passenger side windshield does have a 6 inch crack that happened about 8 years ago that has not progressed. It has new carpeting and the front seat cushions were recovered. The headliner could use replacing as it has 2 wholes in it.
All 4 breaks have been completly rebuilt including shoes, springs, adjusters and wheel cylinders. There are no breaking issues.
There is no smoke from the 6 cylinder engine. These 6 cylinder engines are known to have issues with exhaust manifold leakage. As part of the countless hours I have mentioned, I searched and found a new exhaust manifold and the original was replaced. There is absolutely no manifold leakage with this car. Very quiet. The air filter housing, fuel filter cylinder and valve cover have all been painted in the same blue base coat clear coat as the rest of the automobile.
Radiator, ignition coil, distrtibutor cap, wires, rotor, points and condensor are all new. All lights operate including all dash board lights. All factory guages work properly except the temperature gauge.
The gas tank was removed, cleaned and new sending unit was installed. It has a stereo/cd player installed under the dash with a high quality speaker system mounted in the package tray behind the rear seat. It also has 4 new radial tires.
This car is ready for you to enjoy and well worth the low reserve price. Thank you for your interest in my Comet.

The signs have come down and retail production ended back in October of 2010. Now, the very last Mercury model has rolled off the assembly line. This last Mercury somewhat fittingly takes the form of a Grand Marquis reporting for fleet duty. It was built at the St. Thomas plant in Ontario, Canada, which is the same facility that continues to produce the Ford Crown Victoria and Lincoln Town Car for fleet and livery duty.

St. Thomas' days are numbered, however, as the factory is slated to close on August 31. When it goes, the Panther platform is likely to follow. So long, and thanks for all the fish memories.

Never underestimate what you'll see on eBay Motors. Take this unique creation, for example. Near as we can tell, it's the same 2002 Mercury Marauder that was modified into a two-door convertible by Ford for the 2002 Chicago Auto Show. According to the seller, this car still boasts its Eaton supercharger bolted to a 4.6-liter V8 engine, and at the time of its debut, the engine was rated at a lofty 335 horsepower. We have a hard time believing that the extra ponies would do much to offset the weight of the additional frame stiffeners and top mechanism on the car, however.

The vehicle is currently offered for sale by a dealer in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, though the listing is mum on how the convertible managed to make its way from Ford's Windy City show stand into the seller's inventory. If you like what you see, the machine can be yours for the princely sum of $75,000 or best offer. Head over to eBay Motors to take a gander at the listing.
The Detroit News is reporting that Ford will recall some 370,000 Crown Victoria (pictured), Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car vehicles from model years 2005 through 2011, for an issue regarding the lower intermediate steering shaft. 355,000 of the vehicles in question were sold in the US, with the other 15,000 sold in Canada.
The report indicates that corrosion of the lower intermediate steering shaft could cause a "loss of steering," presumably because of a partial or complete failure of the part. The report points out the dealers will inspect and replace the offending steering component for recalled cars, and may also secure a lower steering column bearing and replace the upper intermediate steering shaft as needed. The company is unaware of any reports of the faulty part causing any accidents or injuries.
Ford helpfully lists states in which corrosion is more likely to have taken place, mostly in the Snow Belt, as you might guess. Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia are listed.
