1978 Mercury Grand Marquis

This vehicle is a true time capsule. Purchased from the original owner who had ordered the car new from Castrucci Mercury in Cincinnati, OH in April 1978. Most of the mileage was accumulated driving between Ohio and Florida. The car has never been in snow, never been in an accident, never been smoked in and has been in climate controlled garages its entire existence. The vehicle is very well equipped for 1978 with its full power package (steering, brakes, windows, door locks, driver's seat, antenna), AM/FM stereo, leather interior, cruise control, digital clock, rear window heater, and A/C. All factory options still function properly including the cigar lighters in the rear doors! The car has the original full vinyl top and the original silver paint still shines like new. The dark red leather interior is in perfect condition with no wear marks, tears or cracks anywhere and includes the optional factory floor mats. The fully carpeted trunk includes the factory spare tire (which has never been removed from the mount), bumper jack and wax pencil markings from the assembly line 38 years ago. The car was rustproofed by the dealership when new and before it was delivered to the original owner. Other than regular maintenance the only things that have been replaced are the tires, battery and the A/C compressor was updated ( the factory original A/C compressor is in the trunk in its box). The factory original owners manual, books, warranty card, keys, build sheet and most of the service records are also in the car. This vehicle is truly in amazing condition and could be driven anywhere. As one would expect from a 38 year old untouched car, there are a few nicks and minor scratches from being driven over the years and the A/C could use a recharge. The car is being sold as is and there is no warranty expressed or implied of any kind. We have done our best to describe the vehicle accurately and welcome any questions or comments. Any third party inspections are welcome and can be set up by appointment. Thanks for looking and watch these '70's era luxury cars, they are quickly appreciating in value, especially true originals!More pictures are available per email request
