Here is an excellent example of a Luxurious 1973 Mercury Grand Marquis Brougham. My Dad purchased the car from the original owner about 7 years ago. This car is completely original as it came from the factory in 1973. It has only 38,000 miles and is in excellent condition. It has always been garaged. Rare Find! They only sold 22,000 of this body style and this car is one of only 150 left registered in the US!
The vehicle is big and drives like a dream. It is powered by the rare optional 460 CID -V8 with the optional 4 Bbl carburetor. The engine is paired with a 3 speed automatic transmission and shifts as smooth as glass. It functions perfectly as it should. These are highly reliable transmissions and are very low maintenance.
The vehicle has been meticulously maintained and handles well. Its road manners are impeccable. The power steering and power brakes work flawlessly. The engine and transmission combination provides super smooth acceleration and power. The engine starts easily- it runs and idles smoothly. It doesn’t smoke or use oil. The engine runs cool as a cucumber even on a hot San Diego day.
This beauty is fully equipped with all factory options including air conditioning (nice and cold), climate control, trademark Hidden Headlights, 6-way power seats, power windows, cruise control, power steering, power disc brakes, AM-FM tape. An aftermarket CD player in the trunk and aftermarket back up camera is also included.
It has beautiful, flawless white factory pillowed upholstery on the power seats and door panels. The white headliner is perfect, as is the contrasting dark green carpet. The glass is perfect and chip-free. All power windows and power seats function as they should. The dark green vinyl top is spectacular. The body is solid and rust-free. The doors shut like vault doors. The factory fender skirts are a handsome treat.
The brilliant chrome bumpers and trim is all in perfect condition with no rust or pitting. The paint is original and is in excellent condition except a few small paint chips, which is normal for an original paint job that is nearly 50 years old.
The dash cluster gauges, including the oil pressure, temp, ammeter, fuel, speedometer, and odometer work perfectly. The CLOCK even works, keeping accurate time.The odometer reads 38,652 ORIGINAL miles and has not been tripped over.
The Whitewall Tires have plenty of tread on them and really set off a luxury look. The brakes and lights are all functioning as they should. In fact, this one has a special feature: SEQUENTIAL TURN SIGNAL LIGHTS!
The trunk is absolutely huge and contains the spare tire and the factory tools. In fact, the factory spare tire has never been mounted with the factory markings still on it. The factory original jack and handle are included. All factory labels under the hood, the trunk and door jams are present and in perfect order.
The car has been on display twice at the San Diego Auto Museum and was featured on the local news station KUSI-TV. It has won numerous trophies and awards including a Grand National Prize Winner Award from the Antique Automobile Club of America (SEE PHOTOS). All of its many trophies will be included with the sale.
All in all, this vehicle is ready for show or go. It needs nothing. The car is a head-turner. It has a commanding road presence-you will be amazed at all the attention it gets. That’s why the San Diego Auto Museum has hosted it twice!
The vehicle is currently registered and located in San Diego, California. I have a clear title in hand.
