This listing is by Sherman Auto Sales. Inc. in Fenton. Mo. 63026. We are a 68 year old family automobile dealership. We are fully licensed as a Mo. dealer. My name is Mark Sherman. I am the owner of our company and will be glad to discuss this car in detail with anyone over the phone at 314 920-2804. This 1969 Mercury Marauder X-100 is a true and real car. The mileage on this car is an actual 31. 00 miles. I have owned this car twice. I originally purchased this car in 2009 with 28. 02 miles from a retired gentleman in Mo. that had this car for many years. The car was very well protected and was taken primarily to car shows. This car was placed in our showroom and was sold very shortly after the first purchase was made. The car was in excellent condition and at that time we had only performed a carburetor repair. The car had a few panels that were painted years ago. These panels appeared dulled in finish and again at the time they were still left alone as the car was very impressive the way it was. The AC was also checked by a quality shop that we used and I was told the compressor was bad. We had left it alone as the customer that made the purchase was comfortable with the AC not working. The car was owned by our customer for approx. the next 4 years. He was a true car person and his ownership was with much pride and care. It was only taken to car shows over his period of ownership. During this time. anns Restoration in Festus Mo. as our suggestion was used to completely go through the brake system entirely and some other incidentals. I am planning to call there shop today to see if I can get a copy of this work. The bill at that time was approx. $3000. 00. This owner over 4 years drove the car about 2000 miles. Due to circumstances I was fortunate enough to re-purchase this car back last year. This time I had the paintwork performed by Manns Restoration. The car again showed nicely. The left quarter panel was dull in finish and also the right trim panel around the trunk surface was also dull. Manns restoration refinished the entire left side and the trunk area with the side inner panels. The work was done very nicely and an additional $3000. 00 was spent on this repair. The car over the 45 years had other panels painted. so this work was done to properly accompany the rest of the car. There are some minor blemishes of touchup over the years. that was left alone. The right rear quarter tip extension was left alone. There is some dulling on the piece. but I felt it should be left alone. The leading area on the hood edge only has a very. very small amount of bend from the hood being closed over the years. This is very minimal and does not take away from this car at all. The black rear panel with the light assembly also has some minor spots where the black finish is thin. This car DOES NOT HAVE RUST. The pictures are nice. the car is even nicer. This is a true turn key car that is very impressive. The drive-train is original and even the factory staple on the upper hose clamp is still in place. I have checked everything on the car with the exception of the 8-track player. The radio played properly. The AC is still warm. the clock did not work. the windshield washer did not operate (wipers were fine). and the hold-down for the battery was not with the car. Everything else was very proper. The owners book is in the glove box. This is the smoothest easiest starting carburetor big block engine you will ever hear run. The idle is as smooth as can be. It has a very low deep throated dual exhaust that just makes you want to drive. This system was on the car when I made my first purchase. The car is sitting on Coker tires. The interior is 100% original and even still has the plastic remains under the seats when delivery was made. There are still pieces of the plastic attached with staples. The inside including all the trim. rugs. seat belts. door panels. and headliner are amazing and fresh in condition **THIS CAR HAS NO INTERIOR ODOR AT ALL. I have driven this car today for about 15 miles in getting gas and driving on the highway. This car drives with no surprises. This CAR RUNS AND DRIVES THE WAY YOU WOULD EXPECT A LOW MILEAGE CAR TO DRIVE. It is very tight. The performance and the sound is very impressive. Everyone that has come in contact with this car has been impressed. The car has been professionally waxed and polished by Manns Restoration. The motor was not washed. The car is wonderful. *This car is available for any type of inspection. I have taken several pictures that all have the zoom option. The bottom of the car is very original and solid. I do not have a lift in my building. but there is a picture as I was lying under the car. *All proper paper work and transfer will be completed by our company. We are a licensed Mo. dealer. The car is being sold on a clean Mo. title. *Our company does NOT charge any type of documentary fees when we sell our cars. * Our vehicles are sold As-Is. *This car is for sale locally at our dealership. If the vehicle is sold. the selling dealer has the rights to close this listing. * My direct cell number is 314 920-2804. I will be pleased to discuss this car.
**SPECIAL NOTES: I was doing some additional research on this car. as I did this listing. If you go on You-tube and type in 1969 Mercury Marauder X-100 you will actually see 2 videos of this car that I was not aware of. The first one is at Manns Restoration that was done on 10/22/2013 when I had the car there for the paintwork. This was done from RAMBLIN AROUND AND WALKS AROUND THE CAR COMPLETELY. The other video is from the previous owner and this is titled not a muscle car. but plenty of muscle. ** IN NOT TRYING TO REPEAT MYSELF. THIS IS A TRULY WONDERFUL CAR. THIS WAS A 2 YEAR PRODUCTION ONLY. IF YOU TAKE THE TIME TO READ THE FULL DESCRIPTION AND GO THROUGH ALL THE PICTURES THIS CAR WILL NOT DISAPPOINT YOU IN ANYWAY. Thank you for reading this lengthy description. Regards. Mark Sherman
