1984 Mercury Grand Marquis 5.0L V8 from North America
Big, powerful, and elegant
The day I first got the car, it needed an alternator badly. We had to jump it 3 times from my Tempo before it would even stay running, and it would stall again if nobody had their foot on the gas. It almost didn't get us back home.
One of the low beam headlights is out.
The driver's window and back left window don't work, and the small A-shaped window in front of the driver's window is off its hinge.
The engine acts like it wants to die when it's idling, but that may just be the throttle position sensor Other than that, the car is in great shape and runs beautifully.
All things considered, this is an amazing car. It's roomy, comfortable, powerful, and definitely big.
The big 302 5.0L V8 engine has lots of power to haul such a big heavy car, and sounds mean when you start it up.
The car itself looks and handles like a boat, and it is very elegant in style. Exactly what you would look for in an antique luxury sedan.
They really knew how to build cars back in 1984.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My grandparents had an '84 Grand Marquis that they bought new. They traded it for an '89 Town Car which was even nicer. I still remember riding in that Mercury with my grandma in the Winter and seeing a small car off the road. My grandma told me we didn't have to worry about that because we were in a big, heavy car. That is probably when my love for big cars began.
