1973 MERCURY MARQUIS BROUGHAM - TRIPLE BLACK BEAUTY

DUSTY, DIRTY, BUT STILL LOOKING ATTRACTIVE IN IT'S TRIPLE BLACK STATE. LOOK BEYOND THE DUST AND YOU CAN SEE A BLACK LUSTRE PAINT, IT'S COMPLETE FLAWLESS BLACK LEATHER INTERIOR, AND IT'S EXCELLENT ORIGINAL BLACK VINYL ROOF. THIS BABY HAS UNDER THE HOOD EITHER A 429 OR 460 CID V-8 ENGINE AT A TIME WHEN THE FUEL CRISIS IN THE EARLY SEVENTIES WERE LOOMING. POWERFUL ENGINES WERE NEEDED TO PROPEL THIS 4,475 LB. TOP-OF-THE-LINE LUXURY MERCURY. THIS CAR WOULD HAVE A $5,151 STICKER PRICE AT THE DEALER. ONLY 22,770 TWO DOOR MARQUIS BROUGHAM HARDTOPS WERE MADE, HOWEVER, TOTAL MARQUIS MODELS - 4-DOOR SEDANS, HARDTOP SEDANS, WAGONS, AND MARQUIS WOULD AMOUNT TO 105,879. FOR THAT MANY MARQUIS MODELS MADE THIS YEAR PROVES THE POPULARITY OF MERCURYS IN '73. TOURING THIS CAR YOU MIGHT NOTICE THAT THIS EXAMPLE HAS LINCOLN WHEEL COVERS INSTEAD OF MERCURY BUT THAT THE OVERALL POTENTIAL OF THIS CAR STILL LIES WITHIN. PLUSH, EMBOSSED VINYL SEATS IN PERFECT CONDITION, WHEEL COVERS, AND PERFECT TRIM DESIGNATE THIS RARE ORIGINAL SURVIVOR AS A WINNER. Another rare and original survivor car brought to you by 55lincoln. THANKS FOR VIEWING.

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! http://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundonYouTube http://ramblinaroundonyoutube.wordpress.com/ https://twitter.com/#!/RamblinAround The background music track is Whiskey on the Mississippi by Kevin MacLeod.

The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to electric piano. 011 ISRC: US-UAN-11-00709 Bouncy, Grooving 2010

1971 Mercury Marquis coupe for sale in Columbus, Ohio.
Too cold to be outside in this godforsaken state to be looking at cars at this time of year, but I could not resist! Factory 429 2BBL high-compression engine, and was told that the car will run and drive okay, however, the gas tank would eventually need to be replaced, for it leaks(more than likely rusted through in some places), and this is the reason for the "temporary plumbing" with the plastic gas can under the hood that is routed to the mechanical fuel pump, and then, of course, the factory hard fuel line leading directly into the carb. Both rear quarter panels are pretty badly rusted, and more than likely, both would need to be replaced. However, the rest of the body seems solid. I was told that the driver's side cylinder head was removed and a valve job was done, and then the head was reinstalled with a new head gasket. Again, this was only for the driver's side. Factory "rim-blow horn" 3-spoke sport steering wheel with tilt, but the wheel itself needs to be restored, or at least the inner rubber contract-strip replaced for the horn to work again, for it is dry-rotted. The car was attempted to be started, but for about 15 minutes and with multiple trying, no success. The steering column ignition tumbler sticks and moves slow, but more than likely, a simple, cheap replacement of the ignition switch, and that would solve the problem. One may speculate on a simple greasing of the rod between the ignition switch and tumbler assembly, but my intution tells me that it is really the 41 year-old original ignition switch that could stand to be replaced. Lastly: YES, I knew all along that this is a Mercury and not a Lincoln. I don't know what possessed me to say so, but I blurted out Lincoln. Silbing rivalry anyway.

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.

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.





2009 Mercury Grand Marquis Road Test
2009 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Engine: 4.6 liter SOHC V8 (224 horsepower/275 ft. lbs. of torque) Transmission: 4-speed automatic w/OD Rear Wheel Drive City/Highway MPG: 15/23 This is a full road test of my mom's 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis, to show how it performs in different situations, and to identify any problems that may exist. I would normally do this after having the car in the shop for repairs, but in this case I am driving the car around just to get a better idea of how it feels on the road. I drove it for about 2 hours and came away very impressed. It is comfortable, refined, solid, and very agile. With only 224 horsepower, one would think that it's underpowered compared to its V6 competitors. It's not. The torquey V8 will pin you to your seat when gunned from a dead stop, and once you're up to speed, there is always plenty of power in reserve. The big V8 has a deep, burly muscle car sound when revved, but at low RPMs it is muted and unobtrusive in the cabin. The 4 speed automatic isn't much of a handicap with the V8's torque curve, although it prefers not to downshift into 1st or 2nd unless you mash the pedal to the floor. If you drive with a light foot, and keep RPMs below 2000, you can easily attain 20+ mpg in everyday driving situations. On the highway, the car is very efficient, due to its tall overdrive gear that keeps the RPMs low. The four wheel ABS disc brakes provide adequate stopping power, with reasonably good pedal feel. Stopping distance is short in an emergency, although the front end dives toward the ground. The Marquis handles very well for a big car, even though it is not equipped with the Handling Package (this option was discontinued around 2007). In hard cornering, body roll is minimal and the Michelin tires provide plenty of grip. The rack and pinion steering setup leaves feel somewhat numb, but it's also pleasantly light and very accurate (especially on the highway). Mercury obviously wanted to leave some "slop" in the steering, so the old folks won't think they're driving a Ferrari :) If you must throw the car around, it is safe and predictable, and can be quite fun for a boat. Comfort is where the car really shines. The ride is very smooth, and gives you the feeling of "floating" over bumps. This is great on the highway, where little road imperfections are ironed out, but not so good on bumpy back roads. If you hit potholes or man hole covers, the car pogos up and down a couple times before settling. I enjoy this type of ride, but many people do not. Inside, the car is very quiet, and road noise is minimal. The leather bench seats are supremely comfortable and roomy, even after a couple of hours. Overall I am really pleased with how the car drives, and it just happens to be a car I would consider buying used. R.I.P. Mercury and all the Panther platform cars that have been discontinued. The song at the beginning is Cradle of Love by Billy Idol, one of my favorite 80s songs.

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...
