62k original miles, nearly flawless
More photos coming soon!
This beautiful Limited Edition Mercury Grand Marquis is an Arizona car with only 62k miles and basically in showroom condition, evident in the photos. The clean Car Fax reports no accidents. The car comes with excellent maintenance documentation, original dealer literature including window sticker, book-bound owner’s manual, and two key-fobs. The Limited Edition trim level includes leather wrapped steering wheel, two-tone leather seats, “Limited Edition” badging, gold trim, chrome trim wheel wells, canvas coach carriage top, premium sound system, and additional courtesy lighting features.
The performance, handling, and durability of the Ford/Mercury/Lincoln body-on-frame panther design with its super dependable drive train, has for decades made these cars extremely popular with limousine services and major fleet operators. Parts are easily available and with regular maintenance you can drive these cars 500,000 miles.
This Limited Edition example is satisfyingly quick with its 4.6-liter V8 engine producing 224 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque. Has the very dependable 4R75E 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission. The upgraded torque converter and rear-axle 3.27:1 gearing make for quick acceleration off the line. The rack-and-pinion steering and redesigned front suspension give it a sporty big car ride with great handling dynamics. The car has no apparent mechanical issues and performs flawlessly.
The roomy interior accommodates six and all their luggage in the huge 21-cubic-foot trunk. Appointments include automatic climate control, two-tone leather seats, PB, PS, PW, PDL, 8-way power heated front seats, heated power mirrors, power trunk release, tilt, cruise, overhead console with universal remote capability, and multiple reading lamps.
The AM/FM/CD multi-speaker stereo sounds surprisingly great. Seats, door panels, headliner, dash, and all interior finishes are nearly flawless. All gauges, switches, lights, signals, climate control, window and seat motors, clock, etc, are fully functional.
Body panels are very clean and straight. The beautiful silver-green paint is original, still very glossy with all pin striping intact. The canvas carriage top is in excellent condition. The only noticeable flaw regards some of the faux chrome body trim which has pitting. Replacement trim pieces are available in the aftermarket and relatively easy to install. Original headlamps have crystal clear light bezels, no fading. All glass and weather stripping are excellent. The undercarriage is clean. The factory alloy wheels are pristine and wrapped with nearly new tires.
Those of you who have done business with me know that I focus on curating extremely clean, all original, low mileage cars with low ownership history. This MINT Limited Edition Grand Marquis is another example of this strategy that I have stuck to for 15 years with over 70 cars. In my humble but experienced opinion the Mercury Grand Marquis is a sleeper that will continue rising in value as collectors move in. Now’s the time.
