<section id="postingbody">Is this Steve McGarrett's triple black Marquis sedan from Five-O? I wished it was but it is as close as you can come to the real deal. The only triple black Marquis Brougham I have ever found and in fabulous bone stock original condition...ready to restore as stock to honor that great TV series from the late 60's and 70's or make her into one incredibly cool radrod!

here are the specs

>460ci v8 with 4v carb & C6 trans

>original owner from Bremerton area then sold locally there and I bought her a year ago

here's the good

>runs stong and whisper quiet

>new carb and brakes

>100% there...I mean 100% and all factory matching original stock.

>perfect glass all the way around!

>great interior (seats, door panels, headliner all fine w/ exception of two small holes in the driver's seat)

>dash in excellent condition (no cracks or other blems)

>power seats work fine

>excellent body with minor dents and very minimal rust in lower fenders only...super solid floors!

>really good chrome and stainless steel trim with only a few bings...front bumper is perfect & rear bumper very good

>headlight doors work

here's the bad

>issues with power windows at this time which I am working on (it appears to be mostly related to needing grease on the slides)

>AC not hooked up but likely will need full service before is can be used

>gas sender bad

>cruise control and clock not working

>power locks buggy

>steering wheel cracked

>carpets sun faded

>very slight sunfading in front seats & small holes on side of driver's seat as mentioned above

>tires only fair to good

>a few bings in the body and trim and a couple of rust spots in lower fenders but very minor and easily fixed

>some rust bubbles under vinyl roof and material shrunken so will need new top eventually

here's the ugly

>she desperately needs paint! it's in terrible condition and being black everything shows from 20feet.

If this car was any other color combination, she just would not have the appeal that all black does. A true 70's gangster ride but don't say it too loud or the ghost of Jack Lord might smite you down. Whether for good or evil, this is a sexy bad ride. On top of that, this car is an easy restoration which I would do myself but I but another car which is priority for me so this bad girl needs to go down the road to the next lucky contestant...which is YOU!

The car is currently in Mt. Vernon, WA and I'm planning to take to take the Merc to the Monroe, WA Swap Meet next weekend to put in the car corral there but in case someone wants a shot at her first, I am available to show the car most anytime.

Price is $3995/obo
