    2006 GM with Marauder style paint

    Hi Folks!

    I purchased this 2006 Grand Marquis LS in November 2020. Dark Toreador Red/Tan Leather.
    I am the fourth owner. Clean CarFax. Last long term owner (2010-2020) was an elderly gentleman and the car had scrapes and broken turn signals from banging into things. My mechanic bought it from him, and then I bought it! I decided to do a full repaint to repair scratches etc, and proceeded to do a monochrome paint job = Marauder of '03-'04. Added 18" Mustang Bullitt Style (OE Performance) wheels and new tires 235/70ZR18 General Gmax. NOS Marauder Spoiler.
    Next was going to be dual exhaust, but I have decided to use my money on the four other classics in the garage!

    Some Details:
    96,xxx miles
    Everything works.
    Tons of new parts:
    Shocks, struts all around, stabilizer bar, sway bar bushings, all stock specs.
    Battery, MAF sensor, blower motor, window regulator left front, Turn signals and tail lights all around.
    Rebuilt seat belt tensioners, remote key fob, power steering pressure switch, alignment.
    OEM fog lights added. Empire All Weather car cover.

    Finish it off with your exhaust of choice and whatever other mods you like!

    $8,500

    I'll get more pictures this weekend!

    Great looking car. Not a 2006 Marauder clone by any stretch. Not trying to sound nasty but facts are facts. Gonna be a difficult sale when that is a Marauder asking price. Good luck though.

    Nicely done car that I'm sure drives as nice as it looks. I'd add some Crown Vic or Marauder tails and tail panel, 4.10's and a tune, maybe P71 or Marauder sway bars. What a nice little sleeper one could have.

    Unfortunately I don't think it's worth the asking price, but maybe close.

    The paint job - monochrome like Marauder. The front end and rear end are totally different in this year too so I couldn't swap out. I did what I could to get the "look". More fun that the stock chromed out ride.

    Interesting that CarFax has adjusted market values due to lack of inventory and KBB has not. CarFax says $8000.

    Do you actually want to sell this car?? You posted this ad almost 10 days ago & you've checked into the site once. You have left no other way to contact you other than through pm's & then don't read them. I'm very interested but want more information.

    Hi Ed,
    I have been in Amelia Island for the Concours car events all week so I have been out of touch with the computer! I could be reached today at . I'll be at the Concours but will have my phone.
    Car was painted at Eastern Auto Works in Cambridge, MD. This is the third car they have done for me. It is super nicely done, polished out the orange peel and everything. I do have the original wheels and tires as seen in the "before" picture in the ad.
