For your consideration a 1967 Mercury Cougar. Restoration has been on going for the past three years. Bodywork needs to be completed. I purchased the car on ebay from a private owner in California. The person I bought the car from could not verify if the mileage was correct. It has a freshly rebuilt engine and transmission with less than 500 miles @ 61429. Rebuilt starter, alternator, regulator as well as a new battery. The power steering has been overhauled including the pump, hoses and actuator. The front suspension has been completely rebuilt. It has five new tires and rims. It has baby moon hubcaps. Rebuilt water pump, aluminum radiator and transmission cooler. The headlight door actuators were also rebuilt. The exhaust system is new from the Hooker plasma coated header through the pipes and Flowmax mufflers. New Grant steering wheel. Seats, dash and console have been reupholstered. The sequential direction lights has a digital processor. I installed a '68 Cougar Tachometer in the clock position. It has new speakers front and back. The bumpers and other parts have been rechromed Yes, there is rust on the car. A lot has been done, but more is needed. The Cougar sat in a backyard (not mine) with the driver's side window open for five years. The floor pans in the back seat and trunk needs to be reconstructed. If I could keep the car, I would also replace the rear axle bearings. The car comes with new door seals and other parts ready to be installed after the restoration is complete. I am also including manuals and catalogs as source of information.

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.
These days, when you buy a new car, it's not unreasonable to expect a certain period of free maintenance to come along as well. Sometimes this is through the life of the warranty, in other cases a little less. But Ford Motor Company is going beyond those deals for at least one part of its cars. As of now, if you buy a set of Motorcraft brake pads for a Ford, Lincoln or Mercury model, you get free replacements for as long as you own the vehicle. The offer is good at Ford or Lincoln dealers and Quick Lane Tire & Auto Centers.

"We will replace the pads for as long as you own the vehicle," said Elizabeth Weigandt to Autoblog. She did clarify that the Motorcraft pads are generally for models from the '90s or newer. Also, to take advantage of this program, a person must return to the same dealer each time to get the free parts.
Of course, Ford isn't just handing out brake pads to anyone who walks by; there are certain stipulations. First, the components have to be worn down to less than three millimeters to be eligible, and the buyer still has to pay for the labor to install them. If the model is used as a fleet vehicle for commercial purposes like as a taxi or limousine, this offer also doesn't apply; the same thing for racecars. On the plus side, if you recently bought a set of pads from one of the participating locations, you're still in luck. The deal covers parts purchased as of July 1.
It's taken four years of study, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has finally closed the books on its investigation into rollaway accusations surrounding 1.56-million Ford SUV models.
The probe, which centered on the 2002-2005 Ford Explorer, 2002-2005 Mercury Mountaineer and 2003-2005 Lincoln Aviator, ends without the federal agency calling for a recall. According to The Detroit News, the investigation was closed due to a "low number of complaints" - NHTSA documented 180 such complaints that resulted in 14 crashes and six minor injuries, but the number of incidents have been slowing. The suspected defect rate for the trucks' automatic transmissions was found to be 4.4 per 100,000 units, and the brake-shift interlock mechanism failure rate was judged to be even lower at 3.4 per 100k.
