Mount Angel, Oregon, United States

You are bidding on this very nice 1956 mercury Monterey.
This car is a prime example of an unrestored survivor car in excellent driver quality condition.

The car was purchased new in Eugene Oregon, has been in the Oregon Valley it's whole life, and is a rust free car.

As stated This car has never been restored, it has had a repaint in the mid 1980's back to original color.
The paint is showing some age and minor flaws but is still driver quality.

The original Y-block 312 fires up and idles so nice and smooth and the original Merc-O-Matic transmission shifts flawlessly.
The engine and transmission were both overhauled back to factory spec in 1995.
(documentation included)

The odometer reads 90,435 and is believed to be correct mileage.  Actual mileage of the engine/transmission since the overhaul is 1,199.

The interior of the car is original aside from a door panel repair in 1994 (documentation also included) and is in very good condition for being 58 years old.

There are no patch panels or cancer on this car, it is solid and rust free! 

It has spent it's entire life in a climate controlled garage and has been very well cared for.

The tires and exhaust are new, they were both replaced last year.

There are only 3 things that do not work on this car, and they are,
the radio, the clock and the speedometer needle has fallen off and is still inside the speedometer, although the odometer still works.

All interior and exterior lights work properly, as well as all gauges (aside front the previously mentioned absent speedometer needle)

The car runs and drives amazingly well!

All glass is scratch free and in good condition aside from some very minor bubbles around the outer edges on the drivers side wing window and door window.

Registration is current and tags are good to 07/2015

This is a great classic, driver quality car

I reserve the right to end the auction at any time due to the car also being for sale locally.

Translogic drives wood-burning Mercury Beaver XR-7

Sun, 31 Jul 2011 18:29:00 EST

You read the title right, we're talking about the Mercury Beaver XR-7. No, Mercury never officially built a car called the beaver. This is the brainchild of upstate New Yorker Chip Beam, who owns and operates Beaver Energy, LLC. It runs on gases created by wood pellets fermented in a 2,400-degree furnace and fed to a supercharged Ford 4.6-liter V8.
By all accounts, it gets down the road just fine, and has pretty close to full power. The best part is, you can grow the fuel yourself and avoid patronizing big oil, if that's your thing. The only drawback that we can see to the Mercury Beaver XR-7 is the PVC pipe jungle occupying the space that would be the trunk under normal circumstances.
Still, if you're willing to smell like a mountain man and look like a bad Back to the Future knockoff, this ride is right up your alley. Click past the jump to see Translogic's take on this modified Merc.

Preposed class-action lawsuit targets 'defective' MyFord Touch

Tue, 16 Jul 2013 15:58:00 EST

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.

Ford recalling 126,000 Fusions and Milans over wheel separation concern

Fri, 09 Dec 2011 11:02:00 EST

Ford has announced a recall of certain Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan vehicles after an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A total of 128,616 2010 and 2011 models equipped with steel wheels may have been manufactured with wheel studs that could crack and split over time. If that happens, the vehicle may experience a wheel separation.
According to The Detroit News, the company is aware of a total of 30 wheel separation incidents, one of which occurred on the front of the vehicle. Even so, no injuries have been reported as a result of the defect.
The problem apparently stems from the fact that the mounting pads on the vehicles' steel wheels may have been faulty from the factory. In addition, the wheel mounting face on rear disc brakes may not have been installed properly. Ford will inspect the rear disc face and replace them as necessary. In addition, the company will replace all of the vehicle's wheel studs free of charge. Head to the NHTSA website for more information, and click past the jump to view the full recall notice.
