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
1962 Imperial Lebaron & Imperial Crown Promotional Film
This is a promo featuring the 1962 Imperial Crown and LeBaron. They also
focus on the move from the Imperial factory to the Chrysler factory.
Imperials had been built in their own factory like Cadillac and Lincoln.
Many people this gave the car less prestige.

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.
This slide show is a part of a series of pictures of cars from different
car shows that I've attended here in Southern California U.S.A.
Heater Core Replacement How To - Ford Crown Victoria / Lincoln Town Car / Mercury Grand Marquis
How to replace the heater core on a 1985 Ford Crown Victoria LTD. The
procedure for removal and installation should be the same for the Grand
Marquis and Town car of the same vintage. This job was kind of a pain, but
worth it since winter is coming. Be careful when buying the replacement
core, I tried to buy at autozone, and their system calls for the wrong one
for this car, part number 94622. the correct part number for the autozone /
spectra premium core is 94620.
