When it comes to vintage automobiles, California and the West Coast of the United States have always been the most desirable the world over for many reasons; the mild climate a large population and the fact that many automotive trends started in California. The automobile is the perfect technological symbol of American culture, a tangible expression of our quest to level space, time, and class and a reflection of our relentless mobility, social and otherwise. You see automobiles advertised the world over described as California cars because at some point they were in California. We are liquidating a collection of 300 actual California cars. This is a collection that took 70 years to comprise. Most have the original paint and original California licence plates issued to them when they were new.
This 1986 Mercury Sable sedan is an original California time capsule that has spent the last 19 years in storage and is part of a 300 plus car private collection that is being liquidated.This Sable is the newest of the classics in the collection and the only one from the 1980's. The car is finished in white with a like new grey interior with a back seat that has never had a passenger and the front passenger side has been sat in may two times. The owner was in his 80's when the car was retired 19 years ago so all of the driving was from 1997 to early 2000s
. It is powered by the trusty 3.0 Ford V6 with automativ over drive It fires up with a new battery and runs very well.This is a true California survivor with the original California plates issued to this car 33 years ago years ago.
Exterior: This Mercury Sable is fantastic on the exterior. The body is in great shape and very straight. The paint is also in fantastic shape and shines very nicely. For being owned by a senior it has a almost flawless body with a few minor imperfections on the bumper cover. It has never been in an accident and has a above average rating of 77 on the car fax report.Overall the exterior of this Sable is great shape. The only thing I can find wrong with this car is one of the rear hub caps are missing other than that she is like new
Interior:This car is all original and has aged well. The dash looks beautiful and is a blast when these came out they were future and its cool to see a futuristic 80s car that is like brand new because it has had hardly any use.All the gauge's are bright and like new and everything works as it did 33 years ago. The headliner is pretty much flawless with no sagging or tears. All the door panels look great. The carpet has aged very nicely and still looks new. The seats are fresh and new like it was only driven by one person who took care of it and it was never stored outside and in fantastic shape .
Mechanically:The car is in good shape. The 3.0L V6 fires up and runs good. It had been storage for 19 years only being moved around to reorganize. The transmissions shifts good in all gears and reverse. All the lights work, front and rear. Overall mechanically this car is in goodoriginalcondition
This car is not the most valuable vehicle in the collection but is possibly the nicest Mercury Sable or Ford Tauras in existence anywhere and would be an ideal and affordableA to B transportation car.
