1971 Mercury Marquis Review

Semi-luxurious & Fully Reliable — I put this car through a grueling 4 hour drive through the Santa Cruz mountains in California, with on-and-off braking and accelerating, before it made it back to Saratoga smelling like exhaust and overheated brake calipers. If you want to take a road trip in a nice-looking machine, put the Marquis on your list of options.

Pros: Powerful 400ci engine, very strong brakes, and a Mafia-like image.

Cons: Headlight doors didn't work, evidently repainted, discolored carpet and door panels.

This Long Roof Is Like Driving Your Sofa Down The Highway! By 72Blazerod

This wagon reminds me of the 1971 Ford LTD Country Squire we had when I was growing up. It totally makes me feel like a kid again. I'm installing an 8-Track player in it so it's even more like my Da... Read More
