My son and I just bought this all original 1977 Mercury Marquis Brougham from the original owners son. It was kept in a garage all its life. It's got 19,000 miles on it. It still has the original tires and Exhaust. It has the 460 4brl V-8. Lots of power.
Since I posted this We've done some paint work, mainly the fiberglass nose and repaired and painted the skirts.The original vinyl top has also been redyed the same navy blue color. Now it looks like new.
1973 Mercury Marquis Brougham 429 V8
This is an old video that I found on my hard drive. I figured instead of
deleting it, I'd go ahead and post it. I thought somebody might find it
interesting. It's a 1973 Mercury Marquis Brougham, black on black, powered
by the big 429 V8, backed by an automatic trans. It's a two door luxury
cruiser for sure. It's pretty nice shape for it's age. Hope you find it
interesting....thanks for watching!

Starting up my 1977 Mercury Grand Marquis
Winter 2010, November 28th.: Starting up my mint 1977 Mercury Grand Marquis
after weeks of standing still underneath my car port out in the cold. The
irritating sound you hear when I film the inside is the lights-on reminder.
Watch the hidden headlights pop up when I drive out of the car port. They
are so cool!
Got this car from the 1st. owner, who lives in Calgary.
The car has the 460 BB V8 in it with 80k on the odometer.

1977 Ford Lincoln Mercury Grand Marquis Cold Start.MP4
Now I know how to make my usually hard-to-start-even-on-an-80 degree-day
'77 Mercury easy to start--have a video camera trained on it! What I would
give most of the time for it to start this easily would be a king's ransom!
This is the best I could conjure up right now, but perhaps after it has
sat for awhile--like 18 hours--it should be much harder to start. It's
usually a long series of tries-to-run-but-dies before finally agreeing to
My Car Collection 1979 Lincoln Continental Collector's Series
This Lincoln Continental is one of the less driven cars in my car
collection it has no 12k miles Originals it has never been restored or
something like that, it works absoulutely everything ,power windows,powered
locks, it has a working MAGAZINE, its really in a mint condition as you can
see it, it runs a V8 Ford 400ci (6.6lt) . The 1979 Collector's Series Mark
V was equipped essentially the same as the Diamond Jubilee Edition of 1978;
virtually every Lincoln luxury was provided as standard equipment on these
cars. Offered in just two colors initially, Midnight Blue Moondust Metallic
and White, two additional colors, Light Silver Moondust Metallic and
Crystal Blue Moondust Metallic, were offered later in the year.The
"Collector's Series" option almost doubled the retail price of the standard
Continental Mark V to almost $22,000 US dollars, The Mark V version truly
was limited with production of just 5,159 cars. Enjoy
1977 Ford Lincoln Mercury Grand Marquis
This is the fourth 1977 Mercury Grand Marquis I've owned since 1985. They
have all had the same drive-train combination: 460 with 2.50 axle ratio. In
the mid-80's when both GM and Ford products had gotten so bad, I was trying
to think of what car in the 70's had consistently had good quality and was
big and powerful as well, short of a Lincoln and I arrived at the
Marquis--a Lincoln in everything but name. I owned my first one from
August of '85 to April of '86, then traded it on an identical yellow one
with 10,000 fewer miles (51,000) and drove it until Nov. 1990 when it had
112,000 miles on it. I traded it for a '72 Mercury Marquis which was nice,
but gave a lot of trouble and got rid of it in 1991 for a '73 Olds 88.
Didn't have another '77 Grand Marquis until October 1998. Back in 2002,
when I was in my third one, a brown one owned from 1998 to 2005, a friend
found this one on eBay, located in Oklahoma, with 41K miles on it, still in
the original family. He won it with a bid of $2,000. I rode with him from
Dallas to Norman, OK to pick it up. It had sat inside the original owner's
garage for nearly ten years. He had it taken to a Lincoln/Mercury
dealership and spent $1,500 having every single thing that deteriorated
with age replaced: all tune-up components, gas tank, tires, you name it, it
was on the invoice. Then he gave it to his son, who tired of it after about
six months and 5,000 miles because of its huge appetite for gasoline. I
drove it part of the way back and instantly realized it was the nicest one
I had ever driven and told my friend to give me first right of refusal if
he ever wanted to sell it. I sold my third one in 2005 and bought this one
in August, 2006 with about 45K miles on it--it now has 50,000 miles. None
of my other GM's had had the dish wheels and I especially wanted one with
them. This car lacks two things that I've seen on all the others I've ever
come across--the rubber bumper protection group, which was an option, and
remote control for the right outside mirror. On the drive back, I
instinctively reached for the lever I always reached for on my other
cars...but there was only an empty space! I can't for the life of me
imagine why something as small as that would not be made standard
equipment. To this day, the car runs flawlessly, returning probably 11 MPG
overall. With 35 years hindsight, it's easy to see now that the
Ford/Lincoln/Mercury automobiles were the best constructed vehicles of the
1970's, a decade known for some of the poorest quality automobiles ever
built. When 1975 arrived, with the redesigned Mercurys and similar Ford
LTD's in place, the company was in such bad financial condition it couldn't
afford another redesign for 1977 as GM was planning, and indeed soldiered
on through the 1978 model year with cars identical to those introduced in
1975. Those 75's were well built with good quality appointments both inside
and out in contrast to the shoddy cars GM and Chrysler were turning out.
Especially GM with its stick-on trim beginning in '74, plastic extensions
that failed within five years, etc. Mercury had enjoyed a much higher trim
level during most of the 70's and even a slightly longer wheelbase than
Fords, much more Lincoln-esque in feel. In '79, Mercury reverted back to
being nothing more than a re-badged Ford, a status it has retained ever
since. Although these cars look the same from '75-'78, each year has a
slightly different standard engine due to the ever changing government
emissions and gas mileage regulations--CAFE was started in 1975. This
applies only to the Grand Marquis--'75 has a 460 standard, '76 has 400
standard with 460 optional, '77 has 460 standard and '78 has a 351 standard
with both 400 and 460's as options. The 460 is the only engine to have--it
was Ford's last and best big block, comprising the 385 engine family of 370
(light trucks only), 429 and 460. They didn't have a lot of horsepower by 1977, but they
still had massive torque. They were designed to be adequate for motor homes
and trucks and are only loafing when driving a 4,700 lb. passenger car. The
400 engine was a replacement for the far superior 390, designed for low
emissions and little else. It has only modest power for its size and none
of the built-in durability of the 429/460 engines. The idea of a 351 engine
in a car this size is ludicrous, but in the late 70's, the companies were
doing everything they could to eke out one or two more miles per gallon in
a government test, but a 351 wold destroy any of the enjoyment potential of
a car of this weight and class.

This Mercury has the 400 cubic inch with a 6.6 litre V8. I have had this
car for a couple of months and it has proven itself to be a reliable car.
Sorry for the camera shake, Im not sure why it started to do that.

SOLD 1950 Mercury Coupe Hot Rod for sale by Corvette Mike Anaheim California 92807
1950 Mercury Custom Coupe Candy Apple Red w/White interior.
If you get a bunch of gearheads in a room together and they get to talking
about what the ultimate hot rod is, inevitably there will be three
constants on the list; the '32 Ford Hi Boy Roadster, the '32 Ford 3 window
coupe and the subject of this ad; the iconic '50 Merc coupe.
The quintessential lead sled; the Merc defined the full bodied hot rod in
the '50's. Its flowing lines were a vast canvas on which customizers could
practice what was a fairly new art form back in the late '40's, early 50's.
Chopped, channeled, frenched and decked. That's what you did if you wanted
your Merc to stand out in a crowd!
And the sled being offered here does that in spades!
Designed to emulate customs made famous by legends like Sam and George
Barris, Gene Winfield and many others, this rolling piece of art has all of
the elements mentioned above, in addition to being wrapped in stunning
Candy Apple Red paint, white tuck and roll interior with a multi-carb'd
Flathead under the hood! Held in a vast private collection consisting of
only the finest custom automobiles, the work was done by Steve's Auto
Restorations using elements of Chevrolet, Pontiac, Cadillac, Olds & Kaiser.
The hardtop body has no "B" pillar, the headlights have been "Frenched",
hood corners have been rounded and of course it wouldn't be a '50's custom
without Appleton spots!
The interior features white "Tuck and Roll", laminated plastic knobs and a
'57 Olds steering wheel, power steering, a hidden audio system and solenoid
operated doors, windows and trunk The business end features a full dress
Motorhead City 1950 Flathead engine featuring an Offenhauser intake and
heads and three Stromberg '97 carbs. House of Color supplied the Candy
Apple over Gold exterior and "Von Dutch" style pinstriping. Wides whites
with full Cadillac wheel covers completes the deal!
It's an investment grade custom that spells upside in it's fortunate new
owners future. It was good enough for James Dean! Stk #N/A
Mercury Cars of 1949 to 1951
The Mercury car model has been around since 1939 and was introduced as a
mid range priced vehicle by Edsel Ford.
Cars built between 1949 and 1951, would in later years prove to be very
popular amongst the Hot Rod Car Enthusiasts. They would reshape the steel
to produce cars that would set a new standard for Customized Vehicles.
Early model Mercury cars of 1949 to 1951 had a 90 degree V type, "L" head 8
cylinder engine with a displacement of 255.4 cubic inches. These engines
put out 112 horsepower at 3600 R.P.M.
Later model cars of 1955 replaced the "L" engine with the "Y" block V-8
producing between 188 and 198 horsepower dependant on the
engine type for that year.

car shows that I've attended here in Southern California U.S.A.
