Description:

1978 Mercury Grand Marquis

1978 mercury marquis, 400 engine,auto. Car is all original, and in excellent shape inside and out, and clean as a whistle underneath, absolutely no rust,rot,or body repairs,or paint work anywhere, its all original. Chrome is excellent, tires like new. Interior is like new,and dont get any better. The only little bit of wear on the car is a small area in the middle of the hood, and top of the front nose panel that has some minor fading/patina from the sun, and the center portion of the vinyl roof itself on the very top has some minor dry cracking, but not to bad at all. Also, awhile back i pulled up to close to a guard rail while parking at a store parking lot, and i barely bumped the RH turn signal lens,and chrome bezel, no damage was done to the car itself, it just bumped into the lens and bezel, it still works fine as is,which is why i never got around to replacing it yet, it can be changed in 20 minutes with ease,only phillip screws hold it on. There is a lens and bezel currently on ebay in excellent shape for 95 dollars including shipping, i am willing to knock off a 100 dollars from agreed upon price so you can replace it, and make the car perfect again.
This car has ONLY a little over 21,000 original documented miles, and before i bought it, it was owned by the same family since new, it was well maintained, and garage kept, and rarely used over the years. This summer i put many,many new maintenance and tune up parts under the hood to freshen it all up, to much to list, but can give details over phone, and have all receipts. The engine is all original, and never apart or messed with, and lots of power, tranny works perfect. This car needs nothing, it is turnkey, and ready to drive immediately, i drive it many times every week, it drives,handles and steers and stops like a dream, and everything works, and wouldnt be afraid to drive it any distance, its never let me down. Also the car is inspected for a long time yet, till 8/21.
Straight up, this is essentially a brand new 42 year old car, about as close as you can get, youd be hard pressed to find one better, and it will be almost impossible to find one with 21,000 or less original real miles on it in this price range. Description is 100% accurate, and pics just taken a few days ago. Car is driven many times a week, it is insured, and it is inspected, and if your close enough to my area, your welcome to come see it, and drive it before the auction is over. I am ok with you picking it up in person, or if youd want it shipped im willing to ship it if you make all the arrangements and have it picked up. I can give any other details you wish to know over phone, please e-mail for phone number, or any questions, car is up for sale locally on craigslist in the pittsburgh,pa section, it has many more pics you can go see there, as it would only let 12 pics on here, or i can send other pics in e-mail if you wish. $500.00 deposit within 48 hours, and full payment due within one week of purchase by cash ONLY in person, or if having shipped a certified check, and will ship after it clears. thank you
(also wanted to make clear, this is a mercury marquis, not the "grand" model as it says in the top title, it was the only option ebay gave for this model so i had no choice but to use it, am not trying to misrepresent)
