1965 Mercury Parklane

It's time to stop and take a serious look at a seriously rare 1965 Mercury Park Lane convertible in a seriously cool color combination. And when you look under the hood to see the original 390 big block V8, and you notice the affordable price, you need to seriously hurry up because someone else might grab this exceptional deal before you even finish reading the details.How often have you seen a Mercury Park Lane convertible? We know the answer is likely never because there were only 3,008 of these produced in 1965...That's it! Now over half a century later how many of these classics do you think are remaining? This example has done more than just survived; it has thrived. Just look at the two-tone paint. That electric blue with a huge silver streak makes this look modern and vintage all in the same glance. These Mercs were big and blocky like their Lincoln siblings, so it's great to see all that sharply creased sheetmetal looking so good and aligned so well. Best of all, the brightwork is all present to make this ragtop truly distinctive. This includes the grille, wide front bumper, fender trim, and the rear bumper that's so large it makes up half of the back end. Even the factory turbine-style wheel covers are in place, and the rear arches still have their fender skirts. Yes, this is a real attention getter!Inside the new white vinyl seat covers are not only a great matching complement to the power folding roof, but the pristine condition also reminds you of Mercury's upscale market placement. There's more 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, heater/defrost controls, 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 there are provisions for a more modern CD player to keep them entertained.Under the hood is the original 390 cubic-inch V8 motor. The engine bay looks amazingly authentic with the big blue block and valve covers. Even the air cleaner looks original with its 390 callouts. This kind of care means the motor fires up on the first try and has a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. 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. Having a Park Lane convertible like this is about reconnecting with a time when dad let you borrow his car for a big date, or you snuck it out so you and all your friends could have the ultimate Friday night in one car. And if you're too young for that, here's the perfect machine to make memories like this. That's because with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and a suspension that will keep you floating down the road, this Mercury convertible is the perfect cruising convertible.Complete with owner's manual, this rare Mercury Park Lane ragtop is one of those cars you might not have thought about before, but now that you see it, you'll never forget it. So hurry up, because at this value price, it's going to its new home soon. Call today!!!
