Vehicle Description

6,080 actual miles! This top of the line Grand Marquis is a time capsule. Excellent survivor condition. It was owned by an elderly couple and seldom used. After they passed the car was stored in a heated garage for many years. More recently someone bought the car, had it serviced and drove it about 1,700 miles. It is turnkey, functional and ready to cruise in luxury.

EXTERIOR: The body is in outstanding condition. It does not have any "garage damage" dents, scrapes or rust. The factory paint is still glossy and shows really. It has just a few minor touch ups. The factory pin stripe is painted on. The stainless trim is excellent. The chrome is very good, there is some pitting on the taillight bezels. The vinyl top is splitting below the rear window. The glass is crystal clear,, the windows have been tinted. The weather strips are still soft in excellent shape. Door jambs are clean. The headlight doors open and close properly. The tires have been recently replaced.

INTERIOR: I'm gonna say it's practically brand new inside from carpet to headliner. I don't see a flaw. It's not been smoked in, the lighters and ashtrays are clean. The door panels are mint, there's no cracking or loose parts. The seats are genuine leather still pristine. The front is a split bench with arm rests and passenger side reclines. 6 way Power on both sides. The headliner is mint. The carpets still look new. There are floormats over the floormats! The dash area is also mint, the chrome sparkles. It features power windows, seats, locks, tilt, Am-Fm 8 track, power antenna and a rear defogger.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It has a big 460 4 barrel motor. Still looks like it dis when leaving the factory. The stickers and paint OK stamps are still visible. All the vacuum lines, pollution pump, air cleaner assembly, cruise control is still in place. Overall it is clean considering it is original. Runs smooth.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It's a huge trunk compartment. It still has it's factory carpet liner in excellent condition. The original jack and spare have never been out of the trunk. The weather strip is still like new. The paint under the trunk lid and jamb are excellent, it still has paint OK stamp. The trunk light works.

UNDERSIDE: Not detailed but rock solid original condition. It still shows some factory markings and tags. It has disc brakes in front. The catalytic converters are still in place. It has the big C-6 automatic trans.

This is a luxury time machine ready to take you back to 1978!
