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.

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.
Wed, 05 Jan 2011 09:00:00 EST
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.
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.

Owners of Ford Escape, Mercury Mariner, Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan models, listen up. According to a report on Automotive News, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened an investigation into these four vehicles totaling an estimated 725,000 units. The investigation appears to center around a malfunctioning throttle body on non-hybrid models of the 2005-2012 Escape and 2011-2012 Fusion. With Mercury dying off after the 2011 model year, this probe will also apply to the 2005 through 2011 Mariner and the 2011 Milan. There has been some discussion around the Escape stalling issue for some time now, but this investigation appears to be larger in scope than before.
Though not a recall yet, NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) has received 123 complaints of stalling or surging vehicles, while Ford itself has logged 1,472 complaints. The investigation report, which is posted below, seems to indicate that a faulty circuit board for the throttle body could cause the vehicle to go into limp mode, which, according to NHTSA, could cause complaints of both stalling and surging.
