1986 Mercury Grand Marquis LS from North America
People mistake it for a Lincoln
Replaced windshield wiper switch and arm.
Replaced sending unit in gas tank.
Replaced linkable fuse.
Replaced 2 alternators.
Cassette player died, replaced with CD player.
Small chip in windshield.
When I bought my car is was in immaculate condition with only a broken sending unit in the gas tank and a broken wiper switch. I had both fixed immediately. There was also some minor rust.
I quickly began customizing it. I had the rear windows tinted. By the way, one of my favorite features of this particular Grand Marquis is the enclosed rear window. I instantly fell in love with it. I removed the script from the rear deck lid. I had custom landau bars made. I also found a place that made fender skirts for my Grand Marquis. Finally, I added some wide white wall tires. I've often had people ask me what year Lincoln or what year Continental I have. I tell them it's a Grand Marquis. But it's back when Grand Marquis' were still grand looking. I plan on showing my Grand Marquis at the local car show. I wish there was a way on here I could post a picture of it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

You should add some curb feelers, and one of those lighted crown air fresheners for the rear deck.
Well, you should!

Where did you have your landau bars made? I'm looking for some about 18" long. Thanks!
