1973 Mercury Colony Park Woody Wagon with the 460 Big Block.  This car was ordered with every optional upgrade.  Seats have been covered since new in 1973.  Custom Covers were made for them.  The carpet is in excellent shape with a few small stains.  I didn't try to clean it or shampoo it.  Glass is in great shape.  Seats look showroom new.  Dash and door panels are excellent.  Chrome is shiny.  All power options work.  8track player works.  The belt for the air conditioning is off.  I was told it works but didn't install a new belt so its condition is unknown.  The tailgate window is electric and works smoothly.  The tailgate opens both ambulance style and also tailgate style depending on which handle you use to open it.  The two facing third row seats look never used.  I picked the car up out of an old house garage here in Lander last fall from the original owner.  I stored it through the winter and now deciding to sell it.  I had a local mechanic go through all the fluids…it starts and runs excellent.  Floats down the road.  Tires are in great shape.  No leaks on the concrete floor in my building from sitting the winter.  Cracked rubber piece behind front bumper (see pic), golf ball size dent in front bumper (see pic) , vinyl "wood" decal is faded and cracking (see pic),  Sun faded paint and vinyl mainly on driver's side.  Small rock chips on front of hood from rocks (see pic).  There is some fluid around the carb and intake but never enough to get to the ground.  Doors are solid, hinges like new.  Overall, excellent condition! If you have any questions please ask.  I will take additional pics upon request of specific part/area.  57,400 original miles!  NO RESERVE!  Not far from being showroom new… Original owners manual included.

NHTSA investigating 725k Ford, Mercury vehicles for stalling issue

Mon, 25 Feb 2013 17:31:00 EST

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.

Ford Recalling 70k Escape and Mariner Hybrids for cooling issue

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 13:31:00 EST

Ford is recalling about 70,209 examples of the 2005-2008 Ford Escape Hybrid and the 2006-2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid because the cooling pumps for their hybrid systems could fail.
According to the company's defect notice, it's possible for the original "Motor Electronics Coolant (MEC) Pump" to wear out and fail, which would could cause the hybrid system to overheat. If this happens, the vehicle goes into a safety mode that takes away most or all of its power. However, braking and steering still operate normally. After cooling down, the affected models restart normally. The company says that it's not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this problem.
Ford will begin repairing the vehicles in late October, and dealers will be installing improved, brushless pumps on the affected models at no charge to owners. If drivers had their pumps fail before this recall, they can contact Ford for a possible reimbursement.

Ford announces free brake pad offer if customers stop by dealers

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 00:01:00 EST

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.
