Spare parts? They will be on the market at some point, even everything currently being hoarded.

This board? After I made post #18 above, my 'search privileges' were severely neutered. I can no longer search by 'terms'. Now, no matter what I plug in I get EVERYTHING that has been put up for sale except reasonably priced COTs (and there were many). The former format for 'returned search results' is no longer appearing. A form of 'shadow banning'. Just WOW. Some interesting 'politics' here at MM.net LOL!!!

Is Tapatalk disabled? I wasn't allowed to register - errors for incorrect 'model year' were returned.

Compared to the Crown Vics Grand Marquis and Lincoln so yes the Marauders definitely special if you don't see that then you're blind. Millionaires million-dollar cars no! Everywhere I go in my Marauder people will come up and talk to me and when they say how it runs how fast is there amazed and impressed. the Mercury Marauder is definitely a standout special one-of-a-kind car. and it has a pretty big fan base old and young alike. Just a little FYI if the car wasn't special people wouldn't be shelling out $8 to 9k for stock ones. The car has received more exposure and more advertising now than it did when it was released. I had a guy in a Hellcat pull up to me the other day and was "impressed" he had never even heard of them! He said in the future he would definitely be in the market for one. And one day these rare parts will be worth a whole lot more money for people who buy them and want to restore them. so everybody else who has rare Parts hold on to them. who cares if everybody else wants to drive the value of the car down.
lastly the reason why the price for these hard and rare parts are high is too many people are trying to make clones out of Crown Vics and Grand Marquis and one day People Like Us who own the real Marauder might need a replacement part and they will be in the junkyard crushed on Crown Vics and marquis!!! Okay I said everything I need to say. Lol. time to take Marauderstine for a drive.
I'm not blind, do people like them? Yes. Are they increasing in value right now? Maybe. You are providing anecdotal personal evidence, the same I would provide as their future to be a classic. Right now prime condition cars are still worth less than half of what they sold for new, ask people on here who have had their car for sale for ages. You want a collectible 2004 car? Get a Ford GT, they sell for way more than they sold for originally - that's a collectible.

Look, I hope they increase in value too and I believe they will. I understand there are less out there and parts have been lost because they have been put on crown vics only to get unknowingly crushed in a graveyard. But at 5K - 10K for decent examples today shows that if these cars had that much of an upside they'd be selling for more already. It doesn't mean it won't happen. 30 years a Hemi Cuda convertible would have gone for $25k which seemed ridiculous, today more than a million. But 25k was still a premium 15 years after the car was built not the 20% of their original cost like today's Marauders.

Don't know about your issues with searching etc. but standard insurance valuation doesn't dictate a cars true value either. One of my Cutlass' have regular insurance since I drive it all the time. Its a risk I take, its probably valued at $5k as they look at it as a 48 year old used car. If I insured it for agreed value it would be 25k minimum. You can get your Marauder insured as a collectible valued at around $15k or so.

Jerry is probably sick of offering one off parts only to have members jump to "I want one" then go to "wait till I get paid" when they find out how much the item costs.

Well said, when I looked at for sale ads I handled questions thru pmís

What it comes to in short is either ďyouĒ want it or donít .. plain and simple.

Glws
I'm sorry I don't have before pictures. I didn't think to take any as I was planning on putting it on my car at the time, but it was on mint condition.

I agree about cleaning out the o-ring grooves before install, before powder coating the tube was split in half which I didn't even know it was two individual parts put together.

All this talk about the COT makes me wonder how they originally filled these cars up with antifreeze. I'm guessing there is no way the factory went through the burping process we go through

No, I'm not 'beating' anyone down - too obvious. You? Posturing because you're some sort of 'icon'(?) within the Marauder Community? Again, too obvious. The IT person controlling the board and manipulating my search privileges? Again, too obvious. The 4yo thread about the fabricated stainless COTs was interesting - the asking price at the time was $475. Have I failed to pay for anything in a timely manner? Not to your knowledge. Honest commentary about the price of spares goes a long way.

As info, the $475 stainless crossovers are for eaton swapped supercharged cars. They don't fit stock motors.Jerry may decide to make stock crossovers and I'm sure will be similar or higher priced

You did, and offered me substantially less than it was listed for. I gave you my best price that I would take. This is not a flea market or swap meet

1. You were berating the seller on his price in his F.S. ad.
2. I am the black sheep of this board, no icon status.
3. There is no "I.T." person, just owners.
4. Jerry did a run 4 years ago, they are all gone, costs go up, next batch will be closer to $600, I wonder how I would know that?
5. You haven't bought anything from me, so I don't know your manner in paying bills.
6. The "honest commentary on prices", price is dictated by what the market will bare, but these comments are why the Marauders for sale section is moderated, too many people telling others how their cars were only worth what the commentator thought.

And... he did some for the Trilogy cars as well, a whole new set of jigs would need to be made up to do them for a N/A car, since these were done as a break even kind of thing, I don't think there will be an advantage to produce them, because as we know, everyone wants them, till they get produced, then most of the buyers all fade away.
