Upscale Granada: 1976 Mercury Monarch

The Mercury Monarch is another unknown oddball, which at first glance looks like a Mercury branded Fox body something-or-other…but it was actually the Mercury equivalent of the Ford Granada and as such, lived on the Comet/Maverick chassis…which was the last hurrah for Ford’s aging Falcon chassis.  Find this 1976 Mercury Monarch offered for $2100 in Hamilton, OH via craigslist.
