Remember Jason Bagge? Sure you do. He’s the Pacific Northwest’s Brougham Whisperer. He seeks out, buys, refurbishes, and sells on classic 1970s Broughamtastic Broughams to happy new owners. Many of his previous cars have been featured right here on Riverside Green, including his 1976 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight, 1976 Caprice Classic Landau, 1976 Bonneville Brougham, 1972 Bonneville four-door hardtop, and 1973 Imperial LeBaron. Well, folks, he just can’t keep anything, ha ha!
Nope. He finds something cool, fixes it up, sells it on, spies another classic ’70s yacht, and repeats the process. All the aforementioned Detroit land yachts are long gone! If he has a car you like, chances are you can get it-for the right price. And now, ladies and germs, he’s selling a very nice 1978 Mercury Marquis. And it can be yours!
Jason just can’t decide on a keeper, ha ha. He buys something awesome, I tell him he should keep it, and then he sells it. Then a month or two later he tells me he should have kept it. Ha ha! But variety is the spice of life, and he’s got some serious variety, with the classic iron he finds and enjoys. But there’s always the next one. And with the next one, it means another car has to go. So here’s your big chance!
This 1978 Marquis is a full-figured beauty, and powered by a mighty, albeit thirsty, 460 CID V8. We shall never see its like again. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a premium retro FoMoCo luxocruiser today!
Yes, it is true. Jason has found, yet again, another gotta-have-it full-sized cruiser. So that means this Marquis has to go bye bye. And that’s where you come in, if you play your cards right!
This car is ready to enjoy. New whitewall tires. Plenty of room. Plenty of comfort. And, perhaps best of all, it is not some butt-ugly combover in beige beigemist with a tippy toed ride and muddling handling. No! This car is lean and mean. And full-figured, yet steady.
And thirsty. Did I already say that? Well, she is. But, if you can handle that, it’s a fine car to take to cruise nights and pilot to the supper clubs on weekends.
What price Broughaminess? How about an opening bid of 3,500 bucks. And let’s face it, there will be no mistaking it in the parking lot!
Best of all, it’s got full-figured comfort and is Ride Engineered by Lincoln-Mercury. So why not throw in a bid. Not only will you be getting a fine, full-sized, V8 powered, rear drive classic, you’ll be helping Jason rescue his next Brougham! So whaddaya say? Check it out. Tell ’em Klockau sent ya!
