A VERY LOW MILAGE AND ORIGINAL 1975 MERCURY MARQUIS BROUGHAM
For sale a truly unbelievable time machine, right from 1975! This Mercury has less than 20000 original miles and is imported from Canada, Vancouver Island. The car is in almost like new original condition. One prior owner had the car for over 40 years. The "Royal blue" metallic shows fantastic on this Marquis. The upper parts on this Marquis looked somewhat faded so they were professionally repainted by "Priceless paint" in Asperen. The result is a beautiful and sparkling colourful car. Sidepanels have original paint, however with some touch-ups. The vinyl roof is original and in like new condition. No underlying rust issues. The interior is in concours condition. Everything untouched by time. All glass is like new, all lighting work. The 7.5 liter/225 hp bigblock starts good, no smoke. Idles great and has lots of power. No squeeks whatsoever, a very, very quit car, except for this great rumble of the massive V8. Steering, brakes, transmission, suspension feel like new. The whitewalls are as good as new. Chrome all original and good to very good, nothing missing. Alle doors open and shut like day one. Under the hood all original 1975, even the placards. Six persons can legally take place, all have seatbelts.
This car is recently licensed and safetied by Dutch-state RDW.
This Mercury is undoubtedly one of the finest and original around. In my opinion a true collectors car and increasingly rare!

Now THE question: why a 70’s decade car, of all the nice classics around... The seventies cars are maybe not as iconic than the fifties or sixties era cars, but they are the more comfortable, reliable and safer (because of better brakes, lights, seatbelts etc.) Spare parts are generally speaking easier to find. They are better suited for longer road trips and in much better comfort than earlier cars. One thing is for sure; no new classic cars will be produced!
