[NOTE: I didn't see any classified forum for this section like those in other sections, like here...

...so hopefully this post is OK &/or could be moved elsewhere by a moderator.]

I need a change, so I am selling my 1979 Caprice Classic sedan to get (hopefully) a 1995 Mercury Grand Marquis.

1979 CC DETAILS:
350, with non-factory TBI
rusty, but solid car "winter warrior"
Caprice Classic locking wire wheels
Pioneer AM-FM radio with CD player
Extra parts, including pair of taillights

I've owned this super-reliable DAILY DRIVER (translation: it runs & drives) since 11/2009. I had to reduce costs (no full-time job since 02/2012), so I sold my 1989 Caprice Classic Brougham "summer cruiser" 09/01/2015. Now, I want a different year-round just-as-reliable daily driver for a new beginning!

Pics of the 1979 CC are in my CL ad:

Yep! No chance Mercury will turn it into a front-wheel-drive nameplate.

Try to avoid any of the Grand Marquis models that have air suspension. Otherwise, that should be a a good choice.
