1975 Mercury Grand Marquis Commercial - Featuring Arthur Hill
Arthur Hill is the spokesperson in this Mercury advertisement. Arthur Hill was the star of the TV show "Owen Marshall, Counselor of Law" which aired from 1971 till 1974. The Grand Marquis was completely restyled for 1974 and would remain basically unchanged until the 1979 model year. This features the "close the door and look at the seat not wobble test"? Now that's a test I've never seen before!!!! But clearly a sign of quality! lol This commercial also features older footage of 1973 Mercury vs 1973 Buick Electra

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





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.

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...

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.
