YAK Car Pic of the Day

1976 Ford Marquis 4

Last Sunday we went across the Atlantic to Germany, so today we’ll head in the opposite direction for a very long drive to Australia. Here we’ll check out the 1976 Ford Fairlane Marquis, which Ford Australia touted as “A luxury car in the grand tradition.” Not grand enough to be called a Grand Marquis, I guess, but probably a bit grander than other Ozian Fairlanes. After all, the Marquis came equipped with “…extra bright reversing lamps; steel-belted radial tyres; windscreen wipers with special intermittent control; and power radio antenna.” This was top-notch stuff back in 1976! (brochure photos from oldcarbrochures.com)
