1961 MERCURY MONTEREY.
I bought this car from the original owner. 292 v8. automatic. starts super easy! Was in his barn, he sold the farm and I got it out of his way for him. Put a battery on it and it started right up. Put a carb kit in it, plugs and wires. fuel filter, flushed the lines, gas tank and radiator, put new belts on it and away we went. I drove this car 300 miles to my home after we had it road worthy! Cruise in it here and there. Moving soon and can't take this monster with me. Everything on this car works. Well except for the a/c. it worked until the compressor went out this past summer. Horn sounds like a freight train! Old tube radio even picks up a.m. stations. Painted the car solid white, was red and white, didn't dig the red. Interior is good other than the drivers side of the front seat as you can see in the photos. Lowered the car 2 inches all the way around. put some new retro 17" wheels and tires on it. This car does need a muffler or something on it, just a straight pipe running back right now.
IF the car sales, a 500$ deposit thru paypal is due within 24hrs. No exceptions. Even if you are coming with cash 2 days later, the deposit is still due!

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.
It's taken four years of study, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has finally closed the books on its investigation into rollaway accusations surrounding 1.56-million Ford SUV models.
The probe, which centered on the 2002-2005 Ford Explorer, 2002-2005 Mercury Mountaineer and 2003-2005 Lincoln Aviator, ends without the federal agency calling for a recall. According to The Detroit News, the investigation was closed due to a "low number of complaints" - NHTSA documented 180 such complaints that resulted in 14 crashes and six minor injuries, but the number of incidents have been slowing. The suspected defect rate for the trucks' automatic transmissions was found to be 4.4 per 100,000 units, and the brake-shift interlock mechanism failure rate was judged to be even lower at 3.4 per 100k.
Jill Wagner has officially given up her crown as the queen of Mercury. With the Ford middle child on its way to the scrap heap, Wagner no longer has any automotive hardware to promote. Given her varied talents, we wouldn't be surprised to see her pick up where she left off with another automaker.
And here you thought you'd never be upset about Mercury's passing.
Thanks for the tip, Gregg!
