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.

Curtain officially comes down on Mercury as dealers remove signage

Mon, 03 Jan 2011 09:32:00 EST

The process of shutting down the Mercury is complete. Ford officially made the decision to close its mid-level brand in June of 2010. In the months that followed, Ford offered its dealers money to stop selling the cars, with production shutting down in September. The last Mercury, a Mariner, rolled off the assembly line in the beginning of October and former spokesperson Jill Wagner said her good-byes to both the car and her job. Now the last piece of the brand has come down as dealers are removing any and all Mercury signage from their lots.

Ford finally issues recall for 230K minivans over rust problems

Sun, 10 Mar 2013 11:00:00 EST

The rust issue in the rear wheel wells of 2004-2007 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey minivans has finally led to a recall. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began an investigation into the matter in 2011, said investigation being upgraded to an engineering analysis a year later while NHTSA tried to figure out how many model years should be included in the assessment.
Ford has decided to recall all of the 230,000 minivans potentially affected, namely those sold in salt-belt states and countries like Canada. The excess rust in the rear wheel wells was also able to prevent the third-row seats from locking to the floor of the minivan. To repair the problem, owners can take their minivans to dealers, and the dealers will place new panels in the wheel wells, replace the third-row seat mounting brackets and relocate the latches to an area away from any corrosion.
Ford says it will begin notifying owners during the last week of March.

eBay Find of the Day: Craterface's '49 Mercury convertible from Grease

Wed, 29 Jan 2014 17:30:00 EST

Here is your chance to own your very own piece of greased lightning. Well, not the Greased Lighting, it's actually the black, flamed 1949 Mercury convertible that races against John Travolta in the classic 1978 movie Grease, and it's for auction on eBay Motors.
While it appeared in the film's exciting drag race in a Los Angeles storm drain, the hot rod was reportedly lost until last year, when the seller found it as a shell. He verified that it was the actual car with original builder, Eddie Paul, and sent the car for a complete restoration.
The auction includes original parts like the exhaust tips used in the movie and bent bumper from when it hit Travolta's car in the scene. The restorer recreated the scorpion stickers on the doors, razor hubcaps and license plate. He also installed a 1949 Mercury 255-cubic-inch (4.2-liter), flathead V8 and three-speed manual transmission with overdrive.
