Repeat Offender: 1978 Mercury Monarch

The general rule when selling your used car or classic is to start your asking price high and then lower it if you don’t sell. This way you maximize your selling price — start high and then wait for the right buyer or drop and sell. Seems logical. Or you could list the car for $12k and then INCREASE the asking price and keep the car forever. Perhaps this is a 3D chess move when the wife wants you to downsize the fleet. Yes dear, the car is for sale, nobody wants it. Find this 1978 Mercury Monarch offered for $14,000 in Fall Branch, TN via craigslist. Tip from Cory.

Dare to be different!!! Super Rare. They made 585 of these in ’78 with a 4-speed. low HP 302 (135hp?) but runs down the road nice and smooth. Car is from Vegas………NO RUST! According to Marti Report, built on Valentine’s day sold in Michigan , (I have dealer plate surround) went to Denver , then Vegas.
Other equipment: P/Steering , P/Brakes, rear defogger, Factory AM/FM-8-track and it works, Factory A/C car. Buckets with console , factory mag wheels. Upholstery is near mint. Paint is not perfect, but done about 7 years ago.
Since owning I have done the following: New brakes, clutch, shocks, A/C Conversion, carb rebuild, Cooper tires, Misc bushing/tie rod ends, new hood ornament

Misc: Horn does not work. Gas gauge stopped working (I have new tank float for it), and A/C has a small leak, (worked all summer, but now not as cold.) Otherwise a very dependable ride.

drove it 5 years, time to move on to another project in the wings. Morons keep moving with your “is it still available ” BS. If you’re serious CALL ME!! I’m off I-81 @Exit 50 about 80 mile from Pigeon Forge.
