1978 Mercury Grand Marquis
A cool-cruising survivor-grade classic that even has cold-blowing A/C. So yeah, we know you like this 1978 Mercury Marquis even before you checked out the ultra-affordable price.
Covered headlights, a matching vinyl roof, and a profile as long as the horizon this classic makes a statement everywhere it goes. But more than just knowing how to make an entrance, this sedan will really impress people who take the time to get to know it better. The Dove Gray paint is the same that was applied at the factory nearly 40 years ago. And speaking of originality, all the delicate trim is in place. This includes all the sweeping profile pieces that run the full length of the car. And since the panels have been treated with such great respect, all of this trim appears like an unbroken line. You'll love all the details from the crest at the base of the roof, to the rear fender skirts, to the turbine-style factory wheel covers it's truly an impressive luxury survivor.
The burgundy interior provides a bold and comfortable place that's perfect for cruising. This has the space and seatbelts to seat up to six, but when it's just you, the fold-down armrest provides individualized comfort. As a true Mercury, you've got great options like power steering, AM/FM stereo, power windows, and plenty of wood paneling on the dash. Even the air conditioning was converted to modern R134a to make sure you're ready to take this one out any time of year.
Under the hood is a true Ford legend. The 351 cubic-inch V8 is the perfect motor to reliably and economically add a ton of performance parts to create the ultimate sleeper. Then again, with this numbers-matching motor looking so original, right down to the decals in the engine bay, it would be a shame not to continue letting lovers of originality marvel at this time capsule. Besides, this V8 already has so much torque that you'll love the way it pulls away from every stoplight. And when you factor in the three-speed automatic transmission, front disc brakes, and Mercury's luxury ride, you soon realize how much fun cool cruising can be.
Complete with the full owner's manual packet, this survivor-grade full-size luxury sedan is a true delight. And at this price, you can indulge without feeling guilty. Don't miss out, call today!
