1956 Mercury Phaeton
What we have up for auction is a 1956 Mercury Phaeton
owned by a buddy of mine. I'm listing this car for him. He has too many cars and needs to make some room. It has
a 312 cubic inch Y-Block engine, believed to be the original from he was told. He bought it from the widow of a
gentlemen that had passed away. He had owned it for quite sometime. He had it painted a long time ago, we don't know the time period but we assume probably 20 yrs. It still looks good even though it does has some chips
and some wear on edges. The interior has a set of covers
over the original seats. He hasn't taken them off to look or
check it out. The door panels are in good condition along
with the headliner. Carpet looks good also. The trunk is
solid. The chrome shows some age but not bad.The motor
runs and starts real nice. Never fails to start hot or cold.
Doesn't overheat, trans shifts nice. It drives real good, you can drive it anywhere. All the lights work, heater works real
good. It has just had new tires,wheel cylinders and brake
hoses installed. New mufflers for the dual exhaust. It's just a real good driver and cruise-in car. There were only 23,493 Mercury Phaeton's made in 1956. The phaeton was the top of the line for the 4dr cars. This color combo of Salmon and white looks real nice on this car with all the
trim a Mercury has. It really catches your eye going down the road. Most people don't notice it is a 4dr with it not
having a post between the doors. It's priced fair so bid to

Ford has announced five separate recalls, affecting 202,000 vehicles built between 2005 and 2014.
It's not been a great couple of weeks for Ford. On October 30, the company announced a 205,000-unit recall, and yesterday, it was revealed that the Ford brand's year-over-year sales were down over 5,000 units while the company itself was down 3,000 units over through October. Now, the company has announced five separate recalls affecting 202,000 vehicles built between 2005 and 2014.
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.
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.
