You are looking at my 1978 Mercury Marquis. It is not a Grand version-but it's close. It has power windows,trunk,locks,seats,AC,rear defroster,factory cassette(not 8 track) and cruise.
Everything works currently minus one window(off track-passenger door),clock and AC needs to be recharged. Also,there is a slight vacuum leak on the headlight doors-when the car is running-they close-when you turn it off-they will open. Common problem with these systems honestly.
It is a tow package car,but I removed the hitch some time ago. It has the optional 460 for 1978-most came with 351's.
The car shows pretty nice and looks awesome. It is not with out it's blemishes though from age and use so it is not perfect. The paint has had some ship repair,no rust to speak of except a small spot around the molding on the top-underneath is solid. There are no dents or Bondo on the car.
This car runs and drives great,cruise works,it is nice to take out for a family dinner or a night on the town. Gets compliments and stares everywhere you go.
The dual exhaust sounds awesome as well. Not too loud with a nice low tone. It's a cruiser.
The title is in my name and is clear. The car also will come with a custom car cover make to fit this Merc. If you choose to use it,simply unscrew the antenna for a tight fit.
It will need a few things to make nicer. Those items will be a new windshield wiper switch(it works-but is loose) and I would try to find a new right rear tail light housing. Not the lens-just the housing. All manuals and brochures included. This is a turn key car and one you can drive anywhere. A little more detail work and some cosmetic tuning will really make it pop. Enjoy and thank you for looking. I feel the photos represent the car extremely well. It is clean. If you have any questions-I will do my best to answer them for you. Have a great day!
