1950 Mercury Convertible "Lead Rag"
After nearly ten years of enjoyment, it's time for me to sell my all time favorite car. This is possibly the chance of a lifetime to own a real 1950 Mercury Convertible that has all the cool custom touches of only the best Lead Sleds. I call her the Lead Rag, which stands for Lead Sled Rag Top. She's been in magazines, won lots of top trophies and given me hours of great times. She is a driver too, this is no trailer queen you can drive her anywhere you want.
Here's a partial list of options:
Chopped top convertible with Haartz canvas top and boot cover and yes it works.
351 W Ford engine with AOD trans and a 9" Lincoln rear end.
4 wheel disk brakes, Fat Man front end, A/C, cruiser skirts,
Ground effect lights under the car, Dual exhaust with Flame Throwers and 4 link Air Ride suspension by the Bagman.
53 DeSoto grille, 57 Caddie hubcaps and air cleaner
59 Caddie taillights, dual electric antennas and they are all frenched in.
Custom paint with multi-color flames and awesome pin stripping by "Styles".
Full leather interior, including the trunk.
Real Appleton spotlights,
Booming great stereo with sub-woofer built into center consol.
Molded in side pipes with Mercury Man covers.
Diamond Back classic wide white wall tires.
Lots more goodies with unlimited cool fun.

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.
The process of shutting down the Mercury is complete. Ford officially made the decision to close its mid-level brand in June of 2010. In the months that followed, Ford offered its dealers money to stop selling the cars, with production shutting down in September. The last Mercury, a Mariner, rolled off the assembly line in the beginning of October and former spokesperson Jill Wagner said her good-byes to both the car and her job. Now the last piece of the brand has come down as dealers are removing any and all Mercury signage from their lots.

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!
