A good price for a clean car. I also like these types of big cars, now that I don't see them everywhere like I did in the '70's.  This model in coupe configuration is very striking. The "Grand Marquis" on the trunk sure sticks out...you never see that font anymore.

I just read the owner's original ad, on Craigslist:  


In there he states the V-8 engine is a 360.  Well there wasn't an option for the 360 engine in that car, in 1978.


The engine options were 351M, 400, and 460.  


The 351M is basically the same as the 400 engine. Shorter stroke and different pistons. Ford used the 351M name after they dropped the Cleveland name.  This engine bares no resemblance to the 351 Windsor engine. All of these engines are torque monsters; well suited to this size of car.
