    Found on Ebay: 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis Wagon

      The Mercury Colony Park went out of production after 1991, but that didn't stop a shop teacher from building a 1999 model of his own.

    From 1957 through 1991, the Mercury Colony Park reigned supreme as the biggest and sometimes most expensive vehicle in the Mercury lineup. During the early years it was a hybrid of sorts, often sharing its platform with whatever full-size Ford sedan was in production at the time while occasionally plucking engines or suspensions from the Lincoln catalog.


    After 1978, the Colony Park's fate was forever tied to its Marquis sedan brother and the Ford cousins, no longer did it have equipment ties to Lincoln. For 1992, the big Ford and Mercury sedans were redesigned to the new Aero look introduced ten years earlier on the Tempo/Topaz and made into a best seller with the 1986 Taurus. Unfortunately for the Colony Park, that also meant the end of the line. By 1992 Mini-vans and SUVs were all the rage, so Ford canceled the big wagons.


    For some people, that end of the Colony Park just wouldn't do. If you're one of those people, you just missed out on a great E-Bay find.


    This 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis Wagon with 44,000 miles sold on E-bay for only $2500. It was a mere 900 miles old when it was rear ended and a shop teacher converted it (with parts from a Mercury Sable I presume) into the wagon you see here.

    The seller says that car runs and is complete with only a minor rust area over the right front wheel well. Unfortunately, there is no side facing third row in this conversion.



    So what do you think? For $2500, would you have rocked a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis Woody Wagon?

    Actually not bad, though the C-pillar and hatch area are pretty awkward...might have looked better using an older Taurus/Sable wagon, which were less bubbly....I think I've seen pics of something like that somewhere...
