Monarch from Germany...
1978 Mercury Monarch 2-door - Powered by 250CID inline six engine with C4 automatic tranny (floor shifter).
Here is what Dennis says about his car:
I bought my Merc two years ago in Dahlewitz, Germany near Berlin. The car is in bad overall condition but it runs. Tires are bad, the interior was wet because the Merc stayed 3 years outside. I want to restore this beautyful mid-size car in 2004 and this will by my first car project. Before that I had been restoring motorcycles only. My Monarch was built in July 1978 and it seems to be a Canadian model with speedo in kilometers (114.000 on the odometer). I found the orginal tools and spare tire in the trunk. There have been hi-jackers installed in the rear and I also got a set of original wheel covers.
Thank you, Dennis, for photos and description of your Monarch.
