CC Outtake: Mercury Grand Marquis Two-Door – Almost As Rare As A Spotted Panther


Panthers, even these ’80s versions, are still plentiful in most parts of the United States. Still, how often do you see a two-door Grand Marquis?  Total production of these from 1983 to 1987 was less than for the Colony Park wagon. The nadir was swan-song 1987, when production totaled 4,904 units–even fewer than the number of, say, 1971 Ford LTD convertibles that were built.
