If you’re looking for a big, old, comfortable American sedan, you’ve found it. Here’s a 1991 Mercury Grand Marquis — one of the last true boats of an American automobile — and it’s currently offered for sale with just 20,000 miles. You can’t buy a new full-size American car-boat-thing … but you can get close.
Here are some details. On the outside, this car is some sort of off-peach color, with what appears to be a brown vinyl top. This, to me, is the perfect “American car boat” color combination — and the vinyl top is merely icing on the cake. Inside, the peach continues, and there’s also a burgundy in there. It’s fantastic.
Of course, inside this Grand Marquis you also have a front bench seat, a column shifter and ruffled cloth seats that must be a joy to plop down in, even though they surely aren’t particularly supportive.
But the best thing about this Grand Marquis is undoubtedly the fact that it’s so pristine. It’s traveled just 20,400 miles from new, surely a car owned by an elderly person who didn’t use it much. As a result, this is your chance to get a nearly new American full-size sedan — even though cars like this fell out of favor years ago.
If you’re interested, this Grand Marquis is offered by a private seller in Florida for $16,500, and it’s surely among the nicest Grand Marquis models you’re likely to find from this era. Find a Mercury Grand Marquis for sale
