Vehicle Description

1977 Mercury Grand Marquis

30k Original Miles

460 V8 - 4 BBL

1 of 1654 Produced in this Paint Trim and Code

It's amazing to think these luxury liners were everyday drivers in the streets of America back in the 70s. These were the cars I grew up with, taking family trips, getting dropped off and picked up from school, and our parents allowing us to take a handful of friends to the prom in them. We were the last generation that grew up kind of normal and looking through photo albums today, I always love pointing out these cars in the background. But now our generation is all grown up and we are starting to really collect these cars because they were and are a huge part of our lives. I hope you feel the same way I do about these vehicles in some way or fashion and as for this particular 1977 Mercury Grand Marquis it started its life as the possession of a Pennsylvania Dentist's car who works within walking distance to his office. He drove the car very little until it was just put in storage since it meant more to him than selling it for cheap money back in the early 90s (which was all they were worth back then). It wasn't until the Dentist had passed away in 2012 that the car was then offered for sale through the estate. It was sold in 2017 to a gentleman that remembered the car from the town the Dentist lived in. It was towed from storage to his garage where the only it did was take up space in his garage and the nostalgia of owning a car from his childhood quickly vanished. So he sold it to the gentleman I purchased it from. The previous owner went through the brakes, and fuel system and rebuilt the carburetor, and was sent through PA state inspection on 5/21. He had visions of lowering the car (bagging it) and making it a custom cruiser but didn't have the heart to do so, so again the novelty wore off. So now that you know the history, Please read on to find out the condition of the car.


The exterior of the car is in excellent condition and shows extremely well. The car is an original, one of 1654 produced in this paint color combination. For the lower part(dark grey), after cutting and buffing the sides, I just couldn't make them shine as I wanted them to so I had the sides painted in a base clear coat which was the original factory color. The top silver color still had some luster left so I touched up some areas and cut, compounded, and polished it to make it the best it could be, but the top silver paint does show blemishes and wear. The vinyl top appears to be original and in excellent condition. All the chrome and stainless are original and shine very well with very little pitting or haze. The car at some point early in its life was treated with a thorough Ziebart Under Coating so it is rust-free underneath and under the doors. The headlights operate as they should but when you shut the car off the headlight doors start to creep up. All the lights and marker lights work as they should and the glass is original and free of damage. Please view the pics and video and let me know of any questions you may have.


The interior is as close to mint as you can get for being original. There is a hairline crack in the upper part of the dash but aside from that, it is near perfect. The seats and carpet looked as they were never used. The headliner is in excellent condition with no rips or separation but a little discolored from age. Everything works except the gas gauge. Please review the photos.


One of the last years the 460 v8 with 4 bbl was available. The engine and transmission run excellent. The car was gone through last May for state inspection and when I bought it I drove it 50 minutes home with the majority at 60+ mph with no problem. All components are roadworthy but it will need an exhaust because half of it is original and a generic muffler was installed by the previous owner and an amateur tailpipe to pass it through inspection.

In Summation:

If you're looking for an extremely low mileage, clean classic car from the '70s this could be for you. It is pretty close to flawless as the way it sits, but to make it perfect it will take very little effort and money. The car can be driven and shown and is turn-key the moment you get it. Thank you for viewing this highly optioned, low production color combo car!!
