Man! Haven't seen one of these forawhile. Looks like this one's well-cared for. Only thing I see is that the windowchannels are loose and need to be redone. Check the vaccuum lines going to the headlight doors. They might need to be replaced to. They tie into a booster unit near the left fender well. This was a common problem with theLTD's and Grand Marquis. Other than that, I'll bet it still runs and drives sweet.
Learned how to drive on one of these. Probably as close as I'll ever come to piloting the Queen Mary.
It that a jaguar in front of it?
i confess that when i hear the word "convertible," this is not what i picture.amazing "condition." four hubcaps!
also, whenever anyone but me drives my truck, the driver's window comes off its track and falls down into the door. if i don't have time to pull the door panel off and get everything set up again, i'll get the glass back up and then wedge something down in the gap to keep it up until i'm able to deal with it. i usually use a pen, but a wad of folded paper would work pretty good, i think. that's my guess as to what's going on in pic #4.
@Grumpy Cat, guess again.
@Grumpy Cat: It's a Rolls Royce/Bentley from the SZ Series, like this one:http://www.oldparkedcars.com/2011/12/1990-rolls-royce-silver-spirit-mark-iii.html
Yeah Tony, that's why I said it. I can't imagine trying to get that window back up if you didn't have a solid door pillar to help you get the glass alligned properly when the glass falls. My BIL owned a '61 Ford wagon with the same problem. He used tocarry a sheet of bisqueen to cover the open hole if it rains or snows.
Is is a Corniche or a sedan?
Weird. From the front, I see 1972 impala- just...more of it. From the side, I see Cadillac. The back is all mercury.
This Mercury Marquis is wearing eighties Lincoln hubcaps; not attractive at all.Note the rust on the lower corners of the door on the drivers side. Full size Fords and Mercury's have a real problem with this in 1969 and 1970 specifically. My 1969 Marauder lived forty years in Nevada and still had rust on the front corners of the door!Ford Motor Company's vacuum operated headlight doors are a pain compared to Chrysler Corp's much more reliable electric headlight doors.
Is this car for sale
