1965 Mercury Monterey Marauder in Lutz Florida

 Vehicle Description
Its time to stop and take a serious look at a rarely-seen 1965 Mercury Monterey Marauder hardtop. Youll really love the big power and firm control of the dual-quad 427 V8 paired with four-on-the-floor. So when a classic fastback with this much power and distinction is also quite affordable, you know this is a very hot / brbr We dont see many real-deal first-gen Marauders too often. They were only available for a few short years, and were quietly offered as the sporty end of the upper-classic Mercury line. These Mercs were big and blocky like their Lincoln siblings, so its great to see all that sharply creased sheetmetal looking so good and aligned so well. Best of all, the brightwork is all present and shining to make the Marauders special hardtop lines truly distinctive. Theres even more great shine on the wide front bumper, grille, distinct fender trim, and the rear bumper thats so large it makes up half of the back end! The era-correct light blue color benefits from a professional respray later in life. It gives this a sophisticated look, which is the right tone for a Mercury. And the addition of Torq Thrust wheels hint at the power without losing the vintage / brbr Inside, youre instantly reminded of Mercurys upscale market placement. There is an impressive two-tone blue on both rows of seats as well as the door panels. Everything looks quite nice, right down to the insignia trim. The rest of the interior is a coordinated sea of blue that looks highly original and well-maintained. This is a full-size coupe, so it has plenty of room to share with family and friends. But you dont need anyone else to enjoy this Mercury. Bucket seats with a center console and floor shifter are true indicators of a drivers machine. As to not take away the original look of the interior and dash, an aftermarket am/fm cassette player was added inside the / brbr Under the hood is a classic presentation with polished Mercury script valve cover and nice details like the washer refill bottle mounted on the fender. But thats not what really has your attention. You can easily recognize the signs of American muscle with an engine bay filled with big block power. This 427 cubic-inch V8 is an upgrade, and while the best Marauders in 65 could have this displacement, none of them had dual Holley four-barrel carburetors on top. The mighty motor fires up nicely and has a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. You are in complete control over this big block and its muscular soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. While you already know this has street-eating power, the power steering, power brakes, and more modern tires that come with the wheel upgrade deliver a package to keep this a proper cruising / brbr The sale come complete with the original warranty card, factory build sheet, and owners manual! This Mercury Monterey Marauder is one of those cars you might not have thought about before, but now that you see it, youll never forget it. So hurry up, before this hardtop goes into someone elses garage. Call today!!!br/br/
