Grand Marquis on a racetrack!
"So, just how well DOES a 4-passenger Mercury Grand Marquis handle?" you
ask. Well, have a look at this video from Barber Motorsports Park and see
for yourself! Some commentary provided by my friend Kellie... :-)
1978 Mercury Marquis Brougham Cold-Start and Walkaround
CLICK MORE INFO AND COMMENT! I bought this car for a winter driver, but
I'm sure if I take care of the motor it will last longer that that. It
hadn't been on the road in many years, so it ran "interestingly" on the 4
hour ride home. It has a 400 CI and I believe a C6 tranny. I love driving
it, just because it is so damn big, and probably an eye sore to everyone
haha. Many people want to buy it from me to use as a demo car, but I don't
think any of these cars should be used for that...even though it would
probably kick ass...
1978 Mercury Marquis Alarm System
CLICK MORE INFO - A short look at the car again, then I show the different
parts that make up the older type of alarm systems that are commonly seen
on 70's and 80's cars. They seemed to have slowly been phased out by the
late 80's. The lock and key was made by Chicago Lock Company (Ace) and the
siren does not have a label on it.
1955 Mercury Sun Valley
Chuck Togstad is considered one of the world's experts on 1954 to 1956
Mercurys. Chuck and his wife Joyce show off their impeccable 1955 Mercury
Sun Valley on display at the Seattle Roadster Show. Lance Lambert, host of
TV's "Vintage Vehicle Show", interviews the Togstads and asks if they
really are as hot inside as rumored. More information about the show can be
found at www.vintagevehicletv.com.
