    Cool

    Yea, I'd be willing to bet that color is "Midnight Canyon Red Metallic."

    Because, I have basically the same car, 2-door and all. Except mine has a "newer" interior and is a slicktop.

    But, nice car.

    seems like Midnight Canyon Red Metallic was introduced on the Grand Marquis in 1984 or 1985.

    That is one nice Merc. Looks like you are well on your way to having a real show stopper.

    You should try a picture like this one.



    Find a park or an open field and stage the car so there is only trees or bushes, maybe a wooden fence in the background and remember to turn the front wheels slightly.

    nice progress! I remember hoping this thing would get a full sorting and repaint when you first joined, I'm glad it's getting the love it deserved.

    Is that a variable venturi carb lurking under the air cleaner or???
