**The grand Marquis was introduced in 1975 as a luxury trim line after the Monterey series was dropped. All of the full-size Mercury's carried the Marquis namesake through 1978. '78 was the last year of 'the big Mercs'- as the cars were down-sized in 1979. **
I bought this carfrom an estate sale in South Dakota.As far as I can tell, this car is 100% original in every way. There are a lot of factory markings still clearly visible on this car: the hand-written #611 on the driver's side frame rail, #7138 stamped in yellow on the driver's side valve cover, the words "PAINT OK WILLIAM" are stamped in white on the inside of the left fender, and on the front right underside of the hood. There is a sticker on the trunk from a car dealership in Ellendale, ND. It is quite possible that this car spent it's entire life in this area. The fact that it is a 37 year old true survivor is remarkable!! This is a great automobile that drives like new. Just imagine rolling up to your next family gathering, business meeting, or golf outing in this iconic classic. Not only does this beauty turn heads, but it also implies elegance and demands respect. A true piece of American history that deserves a great home!
