1973 Mercury Colony Park Wagon 4-door 7.5l 460 Big Block Marquis Woody Wagon on 2040-cars
Lander, Wyoming, United States
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.

Ford has announced through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it is recalling nearly 3,000 examples of its Five Hundred and Mercury Montego (pictured) sedans from the 2007 model year.
Tue, 16 Jul 2013 15:58:00 EST
The action, which affects 2,945 vehicles, is due to potentially defective welds between the filler neck and the fuel tank, a condition that could result in a fuel leak or the smell of gasoline reaching the occupants. In the worst-case scenario, a leak could cause a fire. Cars with the affected fuel tank problem could see an illuminated dashboard warning light as a result of the evaporative emissions leak being detected.
Ford will inspect and replace the fuel tank at no cost to owners (those who have already had the procedure done at-cost can apply for reimbursement), and the Dearborn automaker will begin notifying Five Hundred and Montego owners beginning August 15. Check out the official NHTSA press release after the jump for further details.
A national law firm, Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, has filed a proposed class action lawsuit whose presupposition is that MyFord Touch is defective. Specifically, the complaint states that the system - as well as the MyLincoln Touch and MyMercury Touch clones - often freeze, fail to respond to voice or touch commands and have issues connecting to mobile phones.

According to Hagens Berman managing partner Steve Berman, MyFord Touch is a theoretically "brilliant idea" that falls short in actual execution. Said Berman in a press release, "In reality, the system is fundamentally flawed, failing to reliably provide functionality, amounting to an inconvenience at best, and a serious safety issue at worst."
Other MFT issues enumerated within the 41-page filing include problems controlling the window defroster, rear-view camera and navigation system. The suit maintains that Ford is aware of the problem but has yet to submit a workable and acceptable solution to MFT customers. Scroll down if you'd like to read the full press release.
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.
