2000 Mercury Grand Marquis With Just 20 Original Miles Up For Sale

Sponsored

There have been many vehicles throughout history that have been purchased and stowed away for decades, all with the intent of one day reselling them for a tidy profit. However, these vehicles are usually models like an early Ford Bronco or vintage Ford Mustang – not something like this 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis, which is listed for sale in Canada via Auto Hebdo with a ridiculously low 31.4 kilometers – or 19.5 miles – showing on the odometer.

It’s hard to say if this is the lowest-mile 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis in existence, but if we were the betting types, we’d certainly place a wager that it is. As such, this veritable time capsule looks like a brand new example one might have come across on a dealer lot two-plus decades ago, and it isn’t selling for some exorbitant price either – $29,900 CAD, or roughly $23,300 USD.

The seller doesn’t provide many details about this immaculate sedan, other than noting that it has never been driven in the rain or snow. Heck, it hasn’t been driven much in any kind of weather, with less than 20 miles on the clock, but that’s beside the point. The Grand Marquis has also been stored rather carefully, judging by its impeccable condition, as there are no obvious flaws that we can spot in the provided photos.

The big blue-on-blue machine features this model’s signature cushy interior with faux wood trim, and there is virtually no wear to speak of inside the cabin, either. Everything apparently works perfectly, including the digital gauge cluster. Pop the hood, and it’s immediately evident that the engine bay belongs to a low-mileage vehicle as well, as this car’s Ford 4.6L V8 looks as good as new and sends its power to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission.

The seller notes that this big Mercury has no leaks, and the undercarriage supports that claim with an ultra-clean appearance. Overall, this 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis is a surprisingly well-preserved example of its breed, and certainly not something we see every day – or, perhaps, something we’ll see ever again.

    One never knows what lurks behind garage or barn doors. Someone must have bought it and passed away shortly afterward and for whatever reason, nobody was aware or wanted it. Hopefully some lucky soul will get it and take extra care of it.

      119k is nothing for these when 500k is often the case. As I said before, until early November of this year, I had an ’04 from new at it had just over 205k. That engine and transmission still ran like Swiss watches and interior was undamaged but the body was getting quite rusted. I’ve seen many CROWN VICTORIA’s(police and civilian) and GRAND MARQUIS’s that had rust and peeling paint in exactly the same spots as mine. I had some repaint work done back in the early ’10’s and that extended the body life and improved the looks over peeling paint for a long while so no regrets there. The rust was to the point in recent where flakes were falling off the thing and a hole in the fender so I decided to trade it in. I was great to me and I was a bit sad to give it up but I didn’t want to start to put more and more money into repairs and kicking myself especially with such rust on it and not getting better. So far my ’21 NISSAN ALTIMA has surpassed my expectations. It too is smooth, quiet and comfortable with good power. Yes I was wrong about 4 cylinder engines these days. They are hardly the noisy and crude powerplants of decades ago and mine isn’t even a turbo. Hey, less fuel stops too and won’t complain about that. 🙂

      All the rubber seals in the motor and all rubber parts on the car are probably dry rotted. Noway it’s sitting on the original tires. All the hoses are dry rotted by now too. 23K is stupid!!!!

        I agree. This auto is not in the collector category. We acquired an 05 with less than 40k on it and have had to redo a lot of the rubber components on it(and still have some to do) and it was garage stored it’s entire life. Ours was a gift and still barely worth the amount of resources put into it. Anyone that pays that much for that vehicle will learn a valuable lesson at an outrageous price.

    It has a long way to go. My ’03 LSE just rolled over on 521,000 miles. Still a pleasure to drive.

    This car is not a “barn find.” With only 20 miles on the odometer, It’s likely it was stored immediately after purchase, in a climate-controlled warehouse, where the elements and critters couldn’t get to it. At least half of milage is from when the car drove off the assembly line, to the holding lot where it waited to be transported to the selling dealer, and other miscellaneous movements around the dealer’s lot, and, maybe from the drive over to the location where it was stored for the past 21 years

    I own a 2003 Mercury Marauder which is the 2003-2004 limited production high performance sport model. I bought it with 103k on the clock and it now has 122k and drives like a dream. It is my daily driverthat I enjoy driving thus giving my 1967 GT350 and 2014 GT500 “toys” a break. Whoever buys this will enjoy the comfort and quality.

    I own a 124,000 mile 03 Grand Marquis. Bought it in 2008 from old lady with 7,000 miles for $11,000. Best car I have ever owned. They stopped building them because they do not break. I have a ton of NOS parts in my garage for this great car because I plan on keeping it. I would buy this blue beauty before any other pile of computerized new crap sold today. Oh Yeah, 25 mpg on the highway.

    Grand marquis and crown vic’s were the best cars ever made. 4.6 engine is the best most durable engine I’ve seen in my long life. I like the older ones 1995 96 97. A real steering box!! I’ve been working in the taxi and recycled police cars industry for 40 years. The 4.6 gets the crap beat out of it 24 hours a day 7 days a week and holds up. Yes you’ll have to do a trany and cats one day, and rear axle bearings. Awesome cars, now everybody is junking them, wish I had a place to put them. I’d like. To find a mint 97 or 95 cause 95 doesnt have to pass New York emissions.

    I just bought an ‘08 Mercury Grand Marquis that was in a garage that had 24,500 original miles on it on Nov 22, 21 for $8,900. It is in perfect condition. So shiny. Love it. The father died from cancer awhile ago and the mom can’t drive so they kept the car in the garage and used it to go to Drs apts once in awhile. Like a new car. Having the original radio taken out and another one installed by Best Buy next week with all the modern car conveniences….. Bluetooth, GPS, Sirius, etc. Excited to get it installed.

    I have a 2004 Crown Victoria that I bought from an elderly lady that was garaged with 32,000 miles on it and now has 36,000 miles. I would not trade it for a brand new car. Lovely cars! I have never had a problem with it except a recall for headlights. You can’t beat the Crown and Mercury. They are the best and real beauties.

    I have a 1987 2door Grand Marquis with 62K original miles that is still original except for rubber parts and a water pump. My father was the 2ed owner, he purchased from an estate in 2008 with 31K miles. The original owner retired in 1987 from Mercury and this was his retirement gift to himself after 39 yrs.
