This Grand Marquis was owned by my Dad he gave it to me three years ago. Dad purchased this vehicle new in December of 1986 from Sentry lincoln/Mercury in Medford, MA and it has never seen sand or salt roads. This vehicle has 108K original miles. The vehicles has no rust, nor has it ever been in an accident. The car is extremely clean inside and out, including the underside, but the paint has faded with age. In the last two years since I have own the car I have done many mechanical updates. New tires, shocks, exhaust, battery , AC compressor, and heater core, rear brakes, rear drums and wheel cylinders ,master cylinder. In November of 2012 I replaced the water pump and while everything was apart I replaced the timing change cover, power steering pump, alternator, clutch fan, radiator, all hoses and belts, thermostat and anti freeze, new spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor. Also at the same time replaced front brakes, rotors and wheel bearings. This car is mechanically sound and needs nothing. Starts and drives very well. Steering and suspension are solid.

Small impact dent on driver side rear door from a basketball hit it does not show well in the pictures it is near the top where the pin stripe is. Small dent in roof near the top of rear window, this was done by a transport company when my Dad would ship the car to Florida. Passenger front door needs new power door lock actuator. Rear passenger door window motor runs but the window does not go up or down. Everything else works perfectly including the clock which also provides the date. We have a service journal on the car since the day it was purchased with everything that was ever done with dates and mileage recorded, oil changed religiously at 3 thousand miles or less since new.The vehicle is purchased as is where is and it is the responsibility of the buyer to ship the vehicle if that is your preference.

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.
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.

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.
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.
