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 Mercury Marquis Brougham
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.

This is a Dodge Demo Screen Promotional Film from Chrysler Corporation.
They were used by dealers for salesmen training and in some cases even
shown to customers. 44,039 of these Full Sized Dodges were produced in
it's final year of production. (2206 were police packages) Production
ended actually in November or December of 1976 with no cars actually being
built in 1977. There were no Full Sized Dodges after 1977 model year, this
was the end of the C Platform for Dodge. In 1979, Dodge did introduce the
St. Regis which was based off the Chrysler B Platform. This body style was
introduced in the 1974 model year at the height of the Arab Oil Embargo and
Fuel Crisis. 218,049 Dodge C Platform Monacos were produced in the 1974

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.
