1994 Mercury Grand Marquis update, test drive, audio test!
In this video I'll give you a status update about my Grand Marquis. I will also do a test drive and will show you the capabilities of the stock speakers in this car! At the end some nice pics of the car :-)
2009 Mercury Grand Marquis Road Test
2009 Mercury Grand Marquis LS
Engine: 4.6 liter SOHC V8 (224 horsepower/275 ft. lbs. of
Transmission: 4-speed automatic w/OD
Rear Wheel Drive
City/Highway MPG: 15/23
This is a full road test of my mom's 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis, to show
how it performs in different situations, and to identify any problems that
may exist. I would normally do this after having the car in the shop for
repairs, but in this case I am driving the car around just to get a better
idea of how it feels on the road.
I drove it for about 2 hours and came away very impressed. It is
comfortable, refined, solid, and very agile. With only 224 horsepower, one would think
that it's underpowered compared to its V6 competitors. It's not. The
torquey V8 will pin you to your seat when gunned from a dead stop, and once
you're up to speed, there is always plenty of power in reserve. The big V8
has a deep, burly muscle car sound when revved, but at low RPMs it is muted
and unobtrusive in the cabin. The 4 speed automatic isn't much of a
handicap with the V8's torque curve, although it prefers not to downshift
into 1st or 2nd unless you mash the pedal to the floor. If you drive with a
light foot, and keep RPMs below 2000, you can easily attain 20+ mpg in
everyday driving situations. On the highway, the car is very efficient, due
to its tall overdrive gear that keeps the RPMs low.
The four wheel ABS disc brakes provide adequate stopping power, with
reasonably good pedal feel. Stopping distance is short in an emergency,
although the front end dives toward the ground.
The Marquis handles very well for a big car, even though it is not equipped
with the Handling Package (this option was discontinued around 2007). In
hard cornering, body roll is minimal and the Michelin tires provide plenty
of grip. The rack and pinion steering setup leaves feel somewhat numb, but
it's also pleasantly light and very accurate (especially on the highway).
Mercury obviously wanted to leave some "slop" in the steering, so the old
folks won't think they're driving a Ferrari :) If you must throw the car
around, it is safe and predictable, and can be quite fun for a boat.
Comfort is where the car really shines. The ride is very smooth, and gives
you the feeling of "floating" over bumps. This is great on the highway,
where little road imperfections are ironed out, but not so good on bumpy
back roads. If you hit potholes or man hole covers, the car pogos up and
down a couple times before settling. I enjoy this type of ride, but many
people do not. Inside, the car is very quiet, and road noise is minimal.
The leather bench seats are supremely comfortable and roomy, even after a
couple of hours.
Overall I am really pleased with how the car drives, and it just happens to
be a car I would consider buying used.
and all the Panther platform cars that have been discontinued.
The song at the beginning is Cradle of Love by Billy Idol, one of my
favorite 80s songs.
1994 Mercury Grand Marquis in depth tour
This is my new Car that I bought last March; a 1994 Mercury Grand Marquis
LS with leather trimmed seats, V8 power with dual Exhaust, digital dashboard and what's more.
The video includes a detailed walkaround of the car in the state in which I
I only got time now to finally edit the video footage I took in March. I'll
try to post an update of the car soon since I did some work on the car.
2000 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4.6 V8 55xxx Miles
I thought I'd show you the new daily driver that we picked up to replace
the Cougar. I'm still going to repair the Cougar, but I didn't want to
count on it as daily transportation. This 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis is in
really excellent shape for it's age. It's powered by the 4.6 SOHC V8 and
only has about 55xxx actual miles. I know it's not the most interesting car
in the world, but it should be a comfortable and reliable one. Thanks for
watching and commenting, I appreciate it!

1978 Mercury Grand Marquis Video 1 Owner 6.6L 400 V8 Classic Youngtimer Lincoln Town Car Ford Sedan
78 Mercury Grand Marquis 312,000 Miles Near Mint 1 Owner 6.6L 400 Big Block
Classic Youngtimer http://www.1ownercarguy.com This is a very cool car.
Usually I like cars with really low miles but this car is sol cool because
it has 312,000 original miles on it and runs like a newer car. This is only
a 1 Owner Car and yes the miles are actual. The previous owner drove the
car back and fourth from Canada to California. You would never guess the
miles by looking at the car. The factory baby blue paint is in great shape
and has a very nice shine to it. The factory white vogue top looks great on
the car and is in about as good of shape as you will find. The body is
straight as can be and the paint is original. It has the 6.6L 400 engine
that fires right up and runs great. It has been rebuilt along with many
other things on the car. I talked to the mechanics that worked on the car
and they remembered the guy and how good he took care of his car and really
liked it. You would have to really like a car to put that many miles on it.
The car feels and handles like a newer car and just floats down the road.
The interior is in mint condition along with the rest of the car. Only the
drivers seat shows minimal wear. It looks like he was the only one that
made the trips because none of the other seats look like they hardly ever
got sat in. Everything about this car is just clean as can be. You won't
find another car like this.

The Mercury Colony Park was the top-of-the-line full-size station wagon
offered by Mercury between 1957 and 1991. It wore woodgrain paneling on the
bodysides and tailgate, as did the 1957-1991 Ford Country Squire and the
1958 Edsel Bermuda wagons.
For 1979, Mercury joined its Detroit rivals in downsizing its largest
models, resulting in a car considerably smaller and lighter than its
predecessor. With the downsizing, the former 400- and 460-cubic-inch
engines were discontinued, and the 351-cubic-inch Windsor V8 became the
largest available in the Colony Park. All Colony Parks were equipped with
standard 8-passenger seating and exterior woodgrain siding.
The 351 would be dropped early in the 1980s, as most customers deemed the
302 Windsor engine sufficiently powerful.
This generation of Colony Park would see few substantial changes during its
12-year lifespan, garnering only minor grille and trim revisions annually
through 1987. In 1988, the entire front grille headlamp assembly (shared
with the Grand Marquis) was redesigned for a more modern and aerodynamic
appearance, and then in 1990, the instrument panel was revamped to allow
the addition of a driver's side airbag.
When the Grand Marquis was redesigned with aero-styling for 1992, the
Colony Park station wagon was dropped from Mercury's lineup. By that time,
full-size station wagons were no longer popular due to the increasing
popularity of minivans and SUVs. The last full-size station wagons, the
Chevrolet Caprice, the Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser and the Buick Roadmaster
Estate ended production in 1996. In 2005, DaimlerChrysler briefly
reintroduced the Dodge Magnum name on a full-size wagon, based on the LX
platform Chrysler 300, but it was dropped in 2008.
I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor
My 1990 Mercury Grand Marquis LS
***UPDATE*** A new video, Part II is now available! Please go see it
A quick and silent tour and test drive of my recently purchased 1990
Mercury Grand Marquis LS. I'm lucky to find this car in mint condition. All
original parts except for battery. Even the tires are original. Previous
owner had multiple cars, only used the Grand Marquis for special occasions.
Needless to say it drives like a dream.
Please excuse my poor filming skills as this camera does not autofocus. So
the road is kinda blurry. Enjoy!
