It's time to stop and take a serious look at a seriously rare 1966 Mercury Park Lane convertible in a seriously cool color combination. And when you look under the hood to see serious 428 big block V8 power, and you notice the affordable price, you need to seriously hurry up because someone else might grab this exceptional deal.
How often have you seen a Mercury Park Lane convertible? We know the answer is likely never because there were less than 2,600 of these produced in 1966...That's it! Now over half a century later how many of these classics do you think are remaining? This example looks quite good as it balances its premium and sporty images. For example, the factory-correct red makes a bold first impression, and it has been updated later in life so that this sunshine-friendly convertible still has a nice gloss on a Sunday drive. And if the weather does turn wet, the white convertible top gives this one the all-American appeal of a Coca-Cola bottle. The full-length side trim showcases the straightness of the sheetmetal. Plus, its sporty ribbed design matches the rear panel. There's all the right brightwork, including a front bumper that's wide enough to own the road, the factory wheel covers, and a rear bumper that makes up half of the back end. So this Mercury is elegant, sporty, coordinated, premium, imposing, and absolutely appealing - all in the first glance.
While we like the way this one looks with the roof in place, with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal an even more impressive interior. After all, there's just something special about a factory red-on-red convertible. There are premium touches, like the wood paneling that runs along the door panels and below the dash. When you slip behind the wheel, you get that great feeling of upscale classic style with the thin dual-spoke factory steering wheel that gives you a clear view of the bright gauge panel. This one stays faithful to its original driver-oriented layout with full round gauge panel and factory AM radio all remaining in place. Still, there are going to be plenty of people who want to go for a ride in this six-person convertible. So to keep them entertained, there was a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth added under the dash for the best in upgraded driving music.
The Q-code in the VIN means a big 428 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. The engine bay looks amazingly authentic with the big blue block and valve covers. But you'll also spot the right upgrades, like and MSD coil and distributor. This kind of care means the motor fires eagerly. The same V8 big block would make a few legendary Mustangs, so it can still move this big convertible around with authority. But you don't want this for a muscle car. Instead this premium Park Lane has the unmistakable smooth-running nature you want in a Mercury. With a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and a suspension that will keep you floating down the road, this Mercury convertible is the perfect cruising convertible.
This Mercury Park Lane convertible can't help by impress with its presentation, power, and true rarity. So hurry up, because at this value price, it's going to its new home soon. Call today!!!
