I can't be the only one who thinks this would be cool with a 351w/c and a top loader in it. damn good price for such a pristine low mileage car too.

I drove a four door Mercury Monarch for about six months after I sold my 73 Gran Torino Sport.

Had a '77 Lincoln Versailles(the Granada's upscale cousin) that somebody swapped a '72 351C-4V motor into.  It was hilarious. The suspension was so soft, under full acceleration the gas tank would drag the ground. Parted it out for a '68 Mustang I was building.  Good times..Thumbs Up
