    Anything Marauder specific is considered a holy grail part if it's OEM.

    Bumper skins!

    Tail lights are becoming hard to locate too. You can get aftermarket headlights and front turns but no-one makes rear tail lights.

    Holy grail and rarest part are two different issues. I'll bet the hardest OEM part to find for a 2003-4 Marauder are the wiper blades. On the other hand, I doubt anyone is looking for them or would think of them as the holy grail. Supply and DEMAND
    1963 Marauder S-55, Super Marauder 406
    Only factory 406 powered Marauder, and earliest built Marauder documented to still exist.

    Couldn't locate any on Amazon, eBay or google shopping, Those sites usually drum up anything available. Maybe there's something out there I missed...

    TYC online catalogue for any Marauder light = 0 of 0 results for "Mercury、Marauder、2003、200 4"

    They appear to be out of stock now, I bought my set like 6 years ago or so. A black 03 that I parted out also had 1 aftermarket marauder tail light, so they did exist.

    Seeing Marauder Unobtainium is like Marauder Pron. lol. I remember a post I started many years ago asking to see everyone's stash from the parts horders. I have quite a few myself. Missed a lot of good ones though. Like I remember when Green Sales or Parts Voice still had a few Marauder NOS front bumper covers. Wish I had got one before they were gone.

    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    I'm looking to eliminate the double pump process I have to follow right now to get the pedal hard
