Good morning This a 1968 Cougar XR7 302 3 speed stick. The car was setting in a body shop when we bought it and had been there for 13 years. The car had been taken down to bear metal and had rust in the drivers side floor pan and light rust in the rear lower finders. My husband replaced the floor pan with a new stamp out one from CCCW. He welded in the new one and seam sealed it.  The light rust in the lower finders were repaired using POR15.  Car was sealed and painted. He installed a new carpet, new f-seats, new r-seats, new door panels, new kick panels, new window end seals new side window felts and wipers, new windshield and seal.  The car also has a New Tires, brakes , battery,  heater core, hoses, and tune-up.  And the raidator was service. The car has a factory AmFm stereo with new speakers and cyclone wheels. We have done are best to bring you a good dependable car. All the chrome is on the car but is not new and shows its age. The paint job is ok and is a 7 out of 10 the interior looks good and is a 9 out of 10  Like I said this is not a show car but would make a great high school car for the boy or girl. and yes this car is nice anought to take to the week end [ show and shines ] or that Friday night cruses.  The motor and tranny work good  and sound great as it has duel exh with old school glass packs all the way out the back. . The interior is not stock but it sure looks good as you can see from the pictures. there are a few small problems.  There is a small hole in the headliner from a now dead mouse.  There is also a very small dent in the roof that can be pop right out when headliner is replaced.  My husband has said that this was a fun car to build and should last another 40 years. He did not rebuild the engine as he said it runs good.  My husband is just finishing this up this week and told me to list it for sale.  This is his 253 car that he has built and sold.  He has a glass man coming out to replace the windshield next week before the end of the auction.  My husband has said that you can drive this car home but he thinks it should be trailered. This car is being sold as a good running driving car but because of age and millage the car is being sold AS-IS.    The new windshield and seal will be installed thursday along with the newley recovered dash pad.  and car will be done at that time.  My husband has told me that if you need time to pick this up. He will keep it inside the shop for up to a month. after that it will be moved out side to make room for other car projects and a 1938 fairchild 24 airplane.

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.

Fitting Retirement: Grand Marquis last Mercury off the line

Wed, 05 Jan 2011 09:00:00 EST

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.

NHTSA closes probes on Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey

Wed, 09 Jan 2013 17:59:00 EST

The Detroit News reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has officially closed its investigations into 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2004-2005 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey models. The separate probes found no issues that pose safety concerns. NHTSA began investigating certain Grand Cherokee SUVs over complaints that power steering hoses could detach during operation, thereby increasing the risk of a vehicle fire. Of the 24 reports of failure, none alleged smoke or fire in the engine bay, and Chrysler has since modified the power steering cooler assembly to reduce the likelihood of the failure.
Meanwhile, certain Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey vehicles garnered a government probe after receiving complaints that the models were equipped with faulty scissor jacks. The agency had received six reports of the jacks failing or causing injuries, including one incident that resulted in a fatality. But NHTSA says the jack failure rate is similar to those found in other vehicles. In those six cases, the government agency found the jacks were being used for something other than changing a tire, and investigators could not determine whether the emergency brake was set or the rear tires were properly chocked.
