Description
Lot #668 - This is a very cool Mercury with a unique history. It is a one owner car and originally sold new in Hollywood, CA. The owner used it as his weekend drag racing toy at the Saugus and San Fernando drag strips. The car was tuned and maintained by a repair shop owned by the man's brother and was running on a Super-charged small block until 1970 when it gave up the ghost. As a replacement, they found a 430cid '59 Mercury big block and put Lincoln internals in it to bump displacement to 462cid. He continued to race the car until 1987 when he retired it and put it in storage. In 2000, he undertook a full frame-up restoration that took two years to complete and was done to a very high standard with correct interior, redone original chrome, original AM radio, original heater, fender skirts and more. 62,923 original miles. This car is as fun to drive as it is to show.
