Question about 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis
MY MARQUIS CAME WITH A STERIO RADIO AND CASSETTE PLAYER, BUT NO CD PLAYER. I WANT TO ADD A CD PLAYER, WHAT IS THE SIMPLEST, MOST ECONOMICAL WAY TO DO THIS?
Go to a Salvage Yard or contact Car-parts.com which is a collection of online parts salvagers. There were optional radios which had this feature and also a 6 CD stack for the trunk.
The biggest thing would be to make sure the wiring is compatible if going to a trunk mount. But a dash mount single radio/CD is probably the cheapest way and I would think the speaker wires should be compatible.
The manufactuers used a 4 pin lock system in the front dash facing of the radio. You can get the simple release pin barbs at Walmart or most autoparts places. Just insert the barb pin stems into the 4 square holes and press and the radio should come out.

There are several ways to go about it.
You could install a CD changer and run it through the existing stereo.
There are also (portable) single disk players available that have an adapter that you slide into the cassette player and play it through the existing stereo.
You could look in the salvage yard to see if there are any factory (FORD) CD/Radios that would plug right in and you would not have to make any modifications to the vehicle wiring harnesses or connections.
Then there is the obvious option of visiting your local car stereo store and picking out some fancy new stereo with all the blinky lights and have them install it for you. (Be forewarned that many times, the vehicle wiring harnesses can get pretty butchered using this option - depending on who is doing the installation)
