'73 Mercury Marquis Hearse - One of a kind custom!!!

I am selling my one of a kind, Abbott & Hast (There are only four known A&H hearses in existence), 1973 Mercury Marquis hearse. I need to sell it because I have a baby on the way and need to get a more family friendly vehicle.

I am asking for between $5000 and $5500, make me an offer! It has Montana plates, so I will deduct the licensing fee from the price. I have the title in hand. Runs great!

Interior is Blue Nagahide, Exterior is brilliant purple.

The good:
'73 460 Police Interceptor Engine,
Four Barrel Carb,
Working electrical system,
New radiator cap,
Locking gas cap,
Working eyelid headlights,
Extra storage space,
Folding bench back seat,
It's purple!
Low engine miles,
Good tires,
Straight, strong body,
Double hinged back door (side opening, and pickup hatch style),
Power everything,
Easily adjusted belts (New belts, and recently adjusted),
Doesn't burn oil,
Good gas mileage for such a beast (13-17mpg),

The Bad:
Rear window needs rewiring to roll down,
Rear door needs lock,
Some rust inside,
Small rust spot on rear panel,
Original Upholstery is torn in places (Driver's door, Head liner, Driver's Seat),
Vinyl on outside is worn/torn from age shrinkage.

Overall, this car has been well maintained, all of the issues are due to the previous owner, I just haven't had the ability to fix them.

This car was used as a hearse and part time ambulance in rural Idaho, so it has remarkably low miles. It has gotten me to the midwest and back twice with no problems whatsoever.

Email me with any questions, or if you would like more pictures.

Buy it. Buy it. Buy it!

I would've considered it if I had the money... Then I saw this, and it has become the new focus of my auto-lust:

http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/cto/1440884004.html

1957 Cadillac Ambulance Superior Similar to 1959 Ghostbusters - $7500 (Springfield, Oregon)

Halloween Special 1957 Cadillac Superior Rescuer Ambulance. I think that is a great
car... I've taken a lot of pictures of it and can send them to you. It has
a rebuilt engine.. sometime in 1978 or 79. It was sold from the ambulance
company in 1980, driven into a barn, wood blocks were put under the
axles... and then it sat. I haven't done anything to it so far. I
installed a battery in it only to check the lights and the sirens. My two
boys wanted to see and hear them... there were some fuses that were dead and
only a few lights worked. I didn't try the motor at all. The brakes are
soft. It is very solid... with the only rust just in front the rear wheels
on both sides. I have a picture of the rust. It is a big car and weighs
7100 lbs.

When I had it up on the trailer.... everything looked really solid. It was
really taken from service and driven into a barn. The frame and floors are
dirty, but they are not rusty at all from what I've seen. We don't salt
roads at all, and it came from a dry part of Oregon... so I've never had a
frame rust. I've looked down inside the floor (under the deck) and it looks
all solid inside. Hard to take a picture of it though.

I just checked the glass... There are a few cracks (not broken out) in the
passenger side front door, and both side doors... Luckily, the glass that is
cracked is all flat... and it is all still together. Flat glass can easily
be replaced. The superior only glass on the rear sides and back door and
the windshield is all good. It was missing the rotating beacon when I bought
it. The noisy part of the siren is in the engine compartment. It did not
have a cot. It is also missing a spot light that goes on the passenger side
fender. The driver side has one. IT is a unity spotlight, so that is a
very common part. Also, you may have noticed that it has four headlights on
the front fenders... Originaly, all 57 cadillacs had two headlights. It
looks like these original 57 fenders were modified to have four headlights.
I don't know if it was done at Superior, or later during the ambulance
company's life. I have original 57 fenders with the trim that I would
include if you wanted to go back with 57 front fenders... or just stay with
the four. I'd stay with the four if Superior did it. Yes, I do have
a title. I have a starting price of $9500 for it, but, If you are
interested, please make me an offer. I realize you have to calculate in
shipping home etc...I hope this helps you... Please look through the dirt
on the photos. I have not spent very much time as you can tell cleaning it
up.

When I start a car that has been stored for a while, I always soak the
engine for a while before I even try to turn the engine over... I have not
had a chance to do that.

To get it on the road, it would more than likely need the carb cleaned, new
water pump, new tune-up parts..... And new or rebuilt brake cylinders/master
cylinders, new tires, and more than one fuse.

I think there is a Superior book with numbers, but I've never seen it. I've
been told less than 20, but I'm not sure.
Thanks.

This isl my car, I am not a broker for anyone else. It is located in
Springfield, Oregon. I also have 1959 and 1960 Cads for sale.









That car is pure distilled awesome.

1976 Suzuki RE5 has the Wankel engine and 9734 miles on the odometer.
These were only made in 1975 and 1976, so it's pretty rare. Jay Lemo has one in his collection.
All original except for the seat. The only missing parts as far as I can tell are the gas cap and 2 turn signal lens.
Not running. Engine turns over, but it needs a complete restoration. I have the key.
Plenty of parts and info available on-line. I have the Engine Repair Manual that is included.
I bought it because it was cool and unusual, but it really needs someone who will restore it.

Things got better in the 90's with the return of non-poo poo box pony cars and solid Japanese rivals (300zx, Rx-7, etc).
But guess what? Those cars are hard to keep on the road now and keeping those computers up and running 20 years from now will border on the impossible. My guess is that in 10 years the only running 3000gt VR-4 will be in a Mitsubishi museum.

So where does that leave the "car guys" over the next 20 years? Well, there are a handful of post-70s cars that will be affordable to keep on the road (Miatas, 240zs, Fox-bodies, some mercedes). But if want a sexy car, that you can afford and keep on the road you will have to consider something from the Muscle car era.

I'd expect aftermarket computer options to become increasingly prevalent as the stock electronics in cars from the 80s and beyond degrade in greater numbers. The Internet makes it wayyyyy easier for the specialized knowledge required to keep things going or modify them to spread too.

I'm sure someone will come out with aftermarket electronics for whatever ends up being the 80s equivalent of a '69 muscle car (probably M and AMG cars) but how many boring-but-could-be-popular-in-20-years cars are just going to get scrapped because they can't pass inspection? I'm not sure there are going to be a bunch of 3000GTs sitting around in barns for people to find. By the time all those cars become popular enough again they may be so niche that replacement electronics will be horribly expensive.

Also, who the gently caress is going to be willing to take on the liability of producing aftermarket SRS electronics.

Yeah... That's actually an excellent point. There are a lot of jurisdictions with fixed cutoffs for emissions testing that end up killing a lot of cars when they're in the 'beater' price bracket and just not worth pumping the cash into if there's a blocker to registration renewal.

With regards to SRS, I'd fully expect that stuff to just be left non-functioning by a decent number of enthusiasts. Or, with early generation SRS vehicles, the model years just before the giant ugly airbag containing steering wheels became standard would become the most collectible.

I think you could be on to something with making yourself a cheap toy to thrash the hell out of. But, it could easily end up being a horrible money pit unless you could/want to do all of the labor yourself, including to fix the transmission and repaint it.

You can already find much nicer examples for what it would cost just to buy that thing and get a cheap transmission rebuild and paint job for it. Trying to get the interior presentable again would make be spendy on top of that, and I'd bet it has electrical gremlins too. If, say, that digital dash is hosed, you're looking at several hundred just for that.

I guess 93,000 miles means a bit more on a '68 than on something newer... I should resist even looking at it. But 3 on the tree, drat.

FE engines are durable as heck and there's nothing really complicated to go wrong with the truck itself either. I've driven one into the shop with what turned out to be the camshaft broken in half. As long as it isn't rusted out you're probably good to go effectively forever with one of those things. Even if something does break or maintenance has been deferred for years, it'll be cheap and easy to fix anyway.
