This vehicle is a true untouched survivor car. Purchased in the summer of 2011 from the original owner who had special ordered the car new from Castrucci Mercury in Cincinnati, OH in April 1978. Most of the mileage was accumulated driving to and from Florida and Ohio. The car has never been in snow, never been in an accident, never been smoked in and has been garaged it's entire life. The car is well equipped with full power (Steering, brakes, cruise, widows, seats, door locks, antenna) and everything works even the factory clock and rear window heater! Powered by Mercury's largest engine a 460 C.I. V8. The car has the original full vinyl top and the original silver paint shines like new. The interior is a dark red leather in perfect condition with no wear, tears or cracks anywhere. The rear seat was only used a few times, and the cigar/cig lighters still work! Original spare tire is still in the trunk with the factory markings and has never been taken out of its mount. The car also has the working original AM/FM stereo. The car was rustproofed by Mercury before it was delivered. Other than regular maintenance the only things that have been replaced are the tires and battery (approx 3 years ago) and the A/C was converted to 134A (still have original A/C compressor too). Also have the original books/manuals, factory build sheet, warranty card etc...This car is ready to go and can be driven anywhere. It has had excellent care and maintenance and I have tried to describe the condition to the best of my ability. As one would expect of a completely original 34 year old car there are some nicks and scratches from being driven over the years but the car is truly in amazing condition. The vehicle is being sold as-is with no warranty of any kind and I encourage any interested parties to ask questions and inspect the vehicle. Thank you for your interest. Have more photos if interested please email.

This car is amazing. It is so big and fun to drive, it literally feels like riding on a cloud down the street.  

Dont hesitate to email with any questions. 

The car is in Traverse City, Michigan at this time.

Report: Lincoln getting all of Mercury's ad dollars

Mon, 03 Jan 2011 11:01:00 EST

Now that the curtain has closed on Mercury, Ford Motor Company will redirect all of its marketing dollars for the oft-overlooked brand to the Blue Oval's luxury outpost, Lincoln. In speaking to Automotive News, the chairman of the Lincoln National Dealer Council, Bob Tasca, Jr., said, "You'll see a lot stronger presence in the advertising of Lincoln in 2011."
Lincoln spokesperson Christian Bokich reminded AN that the automaker is "preparing the way for seven new or significantly refreshed vehicles" that will be launched over the next four years, and the largest ad blitz in 2011 will focus on the refreshed MKX crossover, as well as the MKZ sedan and its hybrid counterpart. Following that, Lincoln has plans to launch a completely overhauled version of its Navigator SUV, an all-new C-segment vehicle and the overhauled 2013 MKZ, which Tasca says will be "strikingly different from its Ford Fusion sibling."

NHTSA probing 2000-2003 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable models over throttle issue

Mon, 29 Oct 2012 11:01:00 EST

A potential issue with the speed control cable collar has got the 2003-20003 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable under the spotlight of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. If the collar breaks it can cause the throttle to be stuck open.
The issue is limited to vehicles with the 3.0-liter V6 Duratec. There are just 50 complaints so far out of 310,000 cars, but the NHTSA has begun an investigation into whether a recall should be issued.

NHTSA and Ford investigating steering issues in Crown Vic, Grand Marquis and Marauder

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 18:29:00 EST

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.
