Amswer is always the same - no, but thanks.


They all want your car, ask them what they will pay? If the offer is higher than 7-8k Iíd be surprised. They all want it, till itís for sale, then they want it for nothing, or want to trade a Honda for it.

Like many others, I always dug looks of the 90's impala ss and got to drive one when I worked at a Chevy dealer service department. I've honestly always liked sleeper 4door sedans. S4 Rs4 Rs6 G8 M5 M3 ctsv, name it.

Skip forward to December 17 and I needed a car to replace my 6.0 excursion that was for sale. I always drive something that has some unique factor and I needed another ford since I work for ford. I always knew about the marauder and what it was. So on a whim I start looking. Find several that peak my interest all over the country. I wanted a low miler and was willing to pay up but still hadn't sold the X so didn't have much coin to drop. Settled on an 04 within 150 miles from home after looking at another in K.C. that was garbage. Bought it from the original owner who is in his middle 60's. Got to his house to see it sitting in his garage next to his 12 f350 that's simply gorgeous too. Car was super clean and obviously well taken care of even though the miles were high so I bought it.
The car is a black 04 with 205k miles. Extremely clean. Not happy with the crap factory stereo and painfully slow acceleration. New stereo and 4.30's to come...and maybe a coyote and 6r80.

If I was interested in selling, perhaps I might, but I should also point out these individuals don't typically appear to have particularly deep pockets...

Everything has a price, when I get asked about selling mine the answer is always yes... it's yours for 20 grand. Obviously I haven't had a bite yet but there was one guy in Austria who genuinely thought about it, not kidding.

If someone gave me 20 grand then of course I would sell it and just import another, better one from the States.

Iím about as indecisive as they come, so a decent offer would probably pry my Marauder away, just like it did my first one lol

I do have plans on keeping this one for a long time though!

Wanted a Marauder since 2007 when I was 16. I had a 97 Crown Victoria and one night I was online looking at the different mods available for it and came across the Wikipedia page for the Marauder and Iíve been obsessed ever since.

I remember seeing and reading about the 2 door convertible proposal - followed it from there. Dealers always offered free test drives - no way I could make the $500 - $600 car payment at the time. Was sad when I read they had been discontinued.

Auto Trader and eBay were loaded with Marauders but they were very rare on the used car lots around here. I thought about alternatives like the Charger, Chevrolet SS, Pontiac G8 GXP, etc. but often found low mileage Marauders on the internet in seemingly good condition at often very good prices. When I found mine on Auto Trader earlier this year I knew it was mine - the owner apparently agreed too.

I've always had full size cars. When I first saw the Marauder I thought, this is it. Subtle style, comfort and power potential. I'm on my second Marauder now. Though I won't own one without a power adder.

I'll name all of the full sized cars in the order that I owned them:

1969 Oldsmobile 88 Delta Royale Coupe
1971 Cadillac Sedan Deville
1979 Cadillac Sedan Deville
2004 Mercury Marauder

Of my earlier cars, the Olds was the most memorable. Completely loaded with a 455 2bbl and single exhaust. Just loved the way the car looked and felt while driving. AM-FM 8 track with one speaker in the front and one in the rear - always wondered what they were thinking. Traded the Olds for my 1st brand new car, a 1978 Monte Carlo - wasn't quite the same LOL!!!

Randy O'Dell's Marauder

The thread that prompted me to sign up to MM.net:

https://www.mercurymarauder.net/foru...ad.php?t=82009

Wondering if Randy ever sold the car? He has serious coin in his car...
