1978 Mercury Marquis
Please Inquire for Price
After a redesign in 1973, the Mercury Marquis emerged with a more squared-off appearance and new roofline. Federally mandated 5-mph bumpers also made their debut. Power came from a 460 cu in (7.5L) V8 which was the standard engine option starting in 1974. No matter the engine choice in 1978, all Marquis models were equipped with a 3-speed C6 automatic transmission. The Mercury division’s full-size entry into the luxury vehicle market featured prominent chrome bumpers, large rectangular grille, stylish body molding, rear wheel skirts, and a spacious interior trimmed in leather. Power front disc/rear drum brakes were standard, along with power steering and A/C. This Marquis came with an optional vinyl half roof and has since had a high quality paint job. It also rocks new Detroit Steel wheels with fresh rubber on all four corners and an aftermarket sunroof for when the clouds part ways. Other features include: functional headlamp doors, wood trim accents, AM/FM radio, power antenna, digital clock, locking glovebox, front seat armrests, door-mounted ash trays, and a Midland CB radio just for fun! Original build sheet is available. Get behind the wheel of a classic that was built for both boulevard cruising and highway flying.
