So, I see an ad on our company bulletin board, guy selling his folks' 1980 Mercury Marquis, 351C, AOD, 68k miles. Is this stuff usable for the brake swap, etc? I think he wants to sell it to somebody who will baby it. I'll baby it, alright...

I'm not positive, but I'd think not, at least for front brakes. The Marquis is a totally different platform than the Monarch. I'm sure somebody will correct me if I'm wrong.

I think Jim is right.
IIRC the 80 Marquis is the full-sized land yacht and would not be an acceptable donor for brakes. Almost certain that the engine would not be a Cleveland. Could be an 'M' (Modified) or 'W' (Windsor), though. The M is not my favorite motor.

Thanks, guys. I know nothing of the brake swap and less of Mercuries. The guy said 351C in his ad. I did not speak to him because i didn't want him to get excited that he was going to find a fish for his whale. He was asking $1900. I was gonna offer $100. I sold my '82 Granada to my next door neighbor for $500 in 1990 because it was a dog and I didn't want him whining back at me. I made him sign an agreement that he would never bitch to me about it.
