    Default Mod Box - 85' Grand Marquis

    After years of searching for a rust free box I finally got one.

    I give you the 1985 Mercury Grand Marquis. I am assuming it's a LS but not really sure as there is no badging. It has nice leather interior though so my guess it is a LS. Car originally came from North Carolina so it's pretty much rust free. Has only 60000 miles. Previous owner had the vinyl top removed but the body shop guy did a crappy job on the welds so it's all cracking and needs to be redone. Paint job is not the greatest either but for 800 bucks I am not complaining.

    I will be hanging around here more often.

    Looks awesome!
    For $800 you certainly did well.

    Very nice indeed. I've always believed that the '85 Grand Marquis I had back in the day was the best car I ever owned.

    Looks like yours has been rustproofed , I see a couple plugs in the doorjambs.

    It's been raining out so I haven't had a chance to take any closer look. I see some trim pieces are missing but the trunk is full of various chrome parts so hopefully they are all there. The door sills are definitely missing though. The other 3 aluminum wheels are in the trunk. Someone stole a steelie right from the guy's driveway. The guy I bought it from said he has another bumper and a bunch of other parts that he will drop off.

    I got major plans for this car. The biggest issue that I see with it is a crappy slick top conversion. Bondo around the welds will need to be removed, welds cleaned up and redone. Otherwise the paint is decent but I have no clue what color this is. No paint code or anything and it's not OEM.

    Found one of the sills sitting in the trunk. Still missing one. Also need to find some chrome rear window trim.

    If I post my plans on here I will most likely get crucified. lol

    On another note I got the car transferred in my name today without having to get it appraised since it's over 20 years old. I guess they had a new guy working at the MTO that didn't know the rules.
