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.

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.
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.

Never underestimate what you'll see on eBay Motors. Take this unique creation, for example. Near as we can tell, it's the same 2002 Mercury Marauder that was modified into a two-door convertible by Ford for the 2002 Chicago Auto Show. According to the seller, this car still boasts its Eaton supercharger bolted to a 4.6-liter V8 engine, and at the time of its debut, the engine was rated at a lofty 335 horsepower. We have a hard time believing that the extra ponies would do much to offset the weight of the additional frame stiffeners and top mechanism on the car, however.
The vehicle is currently offered for sale by a dealer in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, though the listing is mum on how the convertible managed to make its way from Ford's Windy City show stand into the seller's inventory. If you like what you see, the machine can be yours for the princely sum of $75,000 or best offer. Head over to eBay Motors to take a gander at the listing.
