I owned this very rare Mercury for 22 years and not a single other person ever drove it in that whole time. I of 18 left alive in the USA at the time I sold it in 2007. Only 18,000 of this 2dr sdn body style manufactured by Mercury USA.
OEM engine/trans was a 6 cylinder/3spd on the column. I transplanted a 460/C6 combo in it, upgraded to disc brakes in the front, installed big anti sway bars front and rear, and classic ET slotted mags on all four corners.
I built it to drive and drive it I did ! Raced in the Old Freezeout Hillclimb a couple of years and had a blast flinging that big red boat up the hill ! Not really fast but REALLY FUN !
