If this were only Steve McGarrett's triple black Marquis sedan from Five-O? I wished it was but it is as close as you can come to the real deal. The only triple black Marquis Brougham I have ever found and in fabulous bone stock original condition...ready to restore as stock to honor that great TV series from the late 60's and 70's or make her into one incredibly cool radrod!

here are the specs

>460ci v8 with 4v carb & C6 trans
>59800 original miles
>pillar post style hartop sedan
>all available power options (PS, PB, PWindows, PSeats, PLocks, AC, Cruise)
>original owner from Bremerton,WA area then sold locally there and I bought her a year ago

there is so much that is good

>runs stong and whisper quiet
>new carb and front brakes
>100% there...I mean 100% and all factory matching original stock.
>perfect glass!
>great interior (seats, door panels, headliner all fine w/ exception of two small holes in driver's seat)
>dash in excellent condition (no cracks or other blems)
>power seats work fine
>excellent body with minor dents and very minimal rust in lower fenders only...super solid floors!
>really good chrome and stainless steel trim with only a few bings...front bumper is perfect & rear bumper very good
>headlight doors work

there's of course some bad

>issues with power windows at this time which I am working on
>wipers need new switch
>gas sender bad
>cruise control not working
>power locks buggy
>AC not hooked up
>steering wheel cracked
>front carpet sun faded
>very slight sunfading in front seats & small holes on side of driver's seat as mentioned above
>tires only fair to good
>a few bings in the body and trim and a couple of rust spots in lower fenders but very minor and easily fixed
>some rust bubbles under vinyl roof and material shrunken so will need new top eventually

luckily, there's only one ugly thing tho

>she deperately needs paint! it's in terrible condition and being black everything shows from 20feet.

If this car was any other combination, she just would not have the appeal that all black does. A true 70's ganster ride but don't say it too loud or the ghost of Jack Lord might smite you down. Whether for good or evil, this is a sexy bad assed ride. On top of that, this car is an easy restoration which I would do myself but I bought another classic car which is priority for me right now so this bad girl needs to go down the road to the next lucky contestant...which is YOU!

Although not in town at the moment, I can show the Merc after the 12th of July when I return, I am not firm on my price but please don't lowball me tho because I am not pressured to sell yet I will entertain reasonable cash offers. The more you appreciate this car, for its rarity and place in TV history the more I will try to negotiate with you. More photos are available at Flickr here and local delivery possible.

Located in Sedro Woolley, WA
Asking price: $3400
