Vehicle Story

This 2004 Mercury Marauder is one of 3,214 produced for its model year and was sold to its first and only owner by Velde Lincoln Volvo of Peoria, Illinois in April of 2004. The mechanical odometer displays 2,981 miles, and the factory floor mats remain wrapped in plastic in the trunk, along with the trunk organizer, and unworn Marauder leather jacket. Carpeting is protected by factory-applied plastic, and equipment remains factory unmodified including original BFGoodrich G-Force T/A tires. Power comes from a 4.6-liter DOHC Ford Modular V8 paired with a 4-speed 4R75W automatic, and this Marauder is one of 1,414 finished in Silver Birch.

The exterior of this Mercury Marauder retains a factory appearance including windows that are free of tint, and model-specific elements such as the tinted headlights and taillights, the front bumper with integrated Cibie fog lamps, the rear bumper which displays the model designation, and dual chrome tailpipe finishers. Much of the trim follows the style of the contemporary Mercury Grand Marquis, and this Marauder is one of 1,414 finished in Silver Birch, with 997 of those made for the 2004 model year.

Five-spoke 18" wheels were unique to the Marauder and come wrapped in the original BFGoodrich G-Force T/A tires.

The interior is upholstered in Light Flint Nudo leather and is also unmodified, including elements such as the factory tape deck, and factory-installed Autometer gauges ahead of the shifter. Seating is belted for five passengers and carpeting remains protected by the car's original plastic lining. The floor mats are retained in the trunk in their original packaging along with the trunk organizer. An unworn large-size Mercury Marauder leather jacket is also included, within its original garment bag.

Model-specific aluminum-finished instruments include a 140-mph speedometer and a 7,000-rpm tachometer, along smaller gauges for the fuel level and coolant temperature. Factory-installed Autometer gauges with a matching appearance mounted forward of the shifter inform the driver of oil pressure and voltage.

Beneath the hood sits a DOHC, 4-valve version of Ford's ubiquitous 4.6-liter Modular V8 engine. Output when new was 302 horsepower at 5,750 rpm and 318 pound-feet of torque at 4,300, and the Marauder received the updated Ford 4R75W 4-speed automatic transmission for 2004.

The suspension came factory-equipped with Tokico shocks and front and rear sway bars, and the rear differential is a limited-slip unit with 3.55:1 gearing courtesy of the Crown Victory Police Interceptor. Heavy-duty brakes also come from the P71.

This 2004 Mercury Marauder is accompanied by its original window sticker and leather jacket.

@johnnyp – seems the brake rotors are chewed up pretty well...this the undercarriage and engine room all revile many more miles ...

Visually the lighting certainly makes it look like deep grooves in the rotors. I just walked up to the car and felt the rotors, and sure there is some texture to them. If you are a bidder we could inspect the pad part numbers and depth if you feel the seller is misleading on mileage. The undercarriage was addressed in previous comments from onlookers. The contrast is enhanced on undercarriage photos to give greater detail in the low light. The engine bay and undercarriage have likely never been washed. The car was brought directly from owners garage to facility with it's 6 digit odometer, dealer floor plastic, original paperwork, and clean CarFax. We have been selling cars on consignment for 22 years and won't sell 'just anything.' Happy bidding!

@Joe1098 – Thank you for your honest reply. Again, I had no intent to castany suspicion on your well respected business. I look at your website many times a week with the knowledge that any automoblie sold by your organization will be reliable and road worthy . As mentioned before, good luck on the sale!! Wish I had room for another Marauder. Thanks again Joe ...

No problem! I think it certainly raised concerns, but it is a fair observation. I wish I could send smell samples of the interior. Seriously, it's incredible.

@GatewaySTL – We understand the concern! When taking undercarriage photographs lighting is limited and contrast is often enhanced to give buyers more detail. This can exaggerate some of the rust coloring. With that being said we don't feel the underside looks unreasonable. Many of the components with surface rust are non-treated non/coated metals. We are likely looking a vehicle that has never actually been washed before. We welcome in person inspections and validations. The vehicle has an original VIN tag, clean Car Fax, and 6 digit odometer. ...

@Joe1098 – Beautiful automobile but that mileage cannot be corret, can it? It just seems to me that the undercarriage looks too worn out for a car with only 3K miles on.. My 2004 Marauder ( original owner ) driven in northern Illinois has 156K on it and the undercarriage looks nowhere near as worn as this one. Appreciate the honesty to take pictures of the undercarriage. Just wondering if anyone else though the same thing as me. Good luck on the sale. Again, beautiful automobile. ...

@Estebon – Is the mileage verified? ...

Hello - the car has a 6 digit odometer, and the CarFax helps verify the history/mileage some. Hope this helps! The car is available for in person inspection if you would like.

@Dbarhum – Are you the original owner? What’s the reason for the low mileage? ...

We are selling the vehicle for the original owner. I'm assuming he knew the rarity of the Marauder, and the extra exclusivity of the Silver Birch color and kept the mileage low to preserve the car. He's an enthusiast and this is not his only car. Hope this helps! We keep the windows up. The smell of the interior is intoxicating.
