MERCURY MARQUIS

2-door 6-seater coupé/convertible, 4-door 6-seater saloon/hardtop, 5-door 9-seater estate.

Very large (by European standards), slightly up-market, version of full-size Fords of the period, on even longer wheelbase (except estates). Vast V8 engines, mountains of space, soft and floppy suspension, and full, if not tasteful, equipment. Engine sizes and power crept down during the decade, due to emission control. Visually more and more similar to Lincoln Continentals as annual face-lifts sharpened up the style. Officially only sold here in 1973-74, but there may be more.
