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.

According to a Bloomberg report, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has upgraded an investigation into complaints of unintended acceleration lodged against Ford vehicles. The investigation began in June of 2010 when just three complaints had been received and it only concerned the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan, but this was at a time when the phrase "unintended acceleration" made grown men go pale. With 49 additional complaints received since then, the investigation has been reclassified as an engineering analysis - the last phase before a recall - and it has been expanded to include the Lincoln MKZ, making for a total of "around 480,000" units affected between the three sedans from the 2008 to 2010 model years.

The ostensible cause is that floor mats are trapping the accelerator pedal, but according to a Ford statement at the time, the entrapment is due to owners placing the optional all-weather floor mats, or aftermarket floor mats, on top of the car's standard floor mats. NHTSA has backed up that assessment, pinning the blame on "unsecured or double stacked floor mats."
On the face of it, it would appear that NHTSA has upgraded the status not because of Ford's error, but owner error, and Ford has stated publicly that it is "disappointed" in NHTSA's move. On top of NHTSA still being skittish after that other unintended acceleration debacle, it could be seen to be taking its time investigating all of the variables: it's reported that Ford changed its accelerator pedal design in 2010, a "heel blocker" in the floorpan has been considered a potential culprit in how the floor mats could be trapping the pedal, some drivers have said the floor mats weren't anywhere near the pedal, and according to a report in the LA Times, in "a letter sent by Ford to NHTSA in August 2010, the automaker said it found three injuries and one fatality that 'may have resulted from the alleged defect.'"
Jill Wagner has officially given up her crown as the queen of Mercury. With the Ford middle child on its way to the scrap heap, Wagner no longer has any automotive hardware to promote. Given her varied talents, we wouldn't be surprised to see her pick up where she left off with another automaker.

And here you thought you'd never be upset about Mercury's passing.
Thanks for the tip, Gregg!
Ford is already well into winding down its Mercury line, and the autoamker has announced that the very last of the soon-to-be dead brand's products built for retail sales was manufactured on Sunday, October 3. The final Mercury Mariner rolled off of the assembly line at the company's Kansas City facility, putting an end to a brand with over 70 years of history behind it.
Even after the Mariner heads off into the automotive sunset, Ford says that it will continue to manufacture a handful of Mercury models for fleet and government service for a while longer, though mum's the word on how long we can expect that practice to continue.
Interestingly enough, according to USA Today, most incentives on Mercury vehicles have all but dried up, even as the brand's August production increased by 120 percent compared to July's figures. Instead of cash on the hood, some areas are offering no-cost maintenance or similar programs. Even so, Mercury has continued to out-sell Lincoln right to the end - besting Ford's luxury arm's sales by nine percent in August.
