1973 Mercury Montego BlackThis is a custom designed replica of the Wood Brothers Mercury street version racecar. It is not a track car with a roll bar, but is an excellent driver restored car that can be enjoyed driving at any time. David Pearson drove the #21 Purolator car to defeat Richard Petty in the memorable Daytona 500. The car evokes nostalgia to all classic racing fans that appreciate the Golden Age of Stock Car Racing. The car was painted by Michael Brogel in Orange County, CA some time ago. Michael was certified by Rolls Royce in the 1970's and has been painting custom cars for over 30 years including contract painting jobs by Boyd Coddington in the late 1990's. The car was painted some time ago and has very little patina. The white and red NASCAR paint scheme shows well.
Hope you like the car as much as I do. I'm a huge NASCAR fan from the golden age of Nascar. This car can be driven home, wherever you may live. Never overheats or has issues restarting in Los Angeles type hot and humid weather. All windows roll up as they should. All door molding is original and in good shape.
This is a All original Marti Report Montego with custom features to replicate the #21 Purolator car David Pearson raced with on the Nascar circuit. Many new parts and restoration funds were used to make this a daily driver, if desired custom car mechanically sound.

11/13/17--THE FRONT SEAT IS BEING PAINTED BLACK BY THE PROFESSIONAL UPOLSTERY SHOP. INTERIOR AND TRUNK PICS WILL BE POSTED THIS WEEK. THE ENTIRE CAR IS IN GREAT SHAPE WITH NO RUST. Most of these old Mercurys have rust and metal issues. This is a California Car and to the best of my knowledge has ever been out of California. It appears evident, the only body filler on this car came from the factory. A new passenger side mirror will be installed.
*I will post engine and interior pics this week with the car engine running. ***********PLEASE DON'T MAKE ANY OFFERS IF YOU HAVE NOT CHECKED WITH YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER. THE BIDDING COMMUNITY AND MYSELF DON'T LIKE TO PAY FOR RELIST FEES AND I REALLY DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO DEAL WITH PAYMENT DRAMA. BID WITH YOUR HEART AND LOVE FOR STOCK CAR RACING.*****
