Mercury  - LeGrand Marquis
A dual action trunk lid based on the principle of the dual action station wagon tailgate has been applied with exciting results to a new idea car called the Mercury LeGrand Marquis. The trunk lid of the Mercury LeGrand marquis, including half the right rear fender, swings up from the rear and also swings over like the cover of a book to provide convenient, low loading height. This method also permits loading from the right side, affording the advantage of curb level access on city streets and protection from on-coming traffic on open roads. Other innovations on the Mercury LeGrand Marquis which have production possibilities include twin sun roof sections and unique interior lighting.
