1975 Specifications


1976 Specifications

According to John B. whose uncle bought a Mercury Grand Monarch Ghia new in 1975 in Sioux Falls, SD, the 1976 Mercury Monarch brochure has a picture of the Grand Monarch Ghia on the cover. Also, two pages of the brochure describe the standard features of the Grand Monarch Ghia. It is surprizing that the standard powertrain in the 1976 Grand Monarch Ghia was the 250 6 cylinder with the 3 speed manual transmission; however, they were probably all ordered with 302 or 351 automatics. When John's uncle bought the Grand Monarch Ghia new in 1975 it was a big deal, because it was the only Grand Monarch Ghia sold in Sioux Falls, SD. It was a 351 V8.
