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.

This one pack Ford's old 4.6L SOHC V8 making only 224 HP which is pumped to
the Rear wheels through a 4 speed auto.
Pretty much the most old school sedan that you can get & they are one of
the toughest full-size sedans that you can get. But don't expect
sophisticated handling, top notch interior quality or brisk acceleration.

2004 Mercury Grand Marquis Blower Motor Repair -EricTheCarGuy
This video shows my little 'adventure' as I repair the blower motor on this
2004 Mercury Grand Marquis. The Grand Marquis is pretty much the same as
the Ford Crown Victoria or full sized Lincoln. I did end up fixing it in
the end but it took a little bit to get to the bottom of the problem. I'll
admit that was my own doing but all's well that ends well I suppose. There
is another version of this video that goes into more detail available to

2009 Mercury Grand Marquis Road Test
2009 Mercury Grand Marquis LS
Engine: 4.6 liter SOHC V8 (224 horsepower/275 ft. lbs. of
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.

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.
