highest performance version in this line of cars and although

1966. The name was derived from Mercury's top of the line engine at
the time. These 121 wheelbase cars had neat designs incorporated
into them like the tunneled rear window and concealed headlights.
This 1970 belongs to the second generation and is in excellent
condition throughout. It is currently part of a private collection
and looking it over it is clear it had been well maintained since
new. It is a nice survivor which has around 71,500 miles but it
sure doesn't look like it. The body is all solid and painted in its
original Medium Blue color paired with a Black vinyl top. All of
the original style chrome and stainless trim is cleanly mounted in
place and has a great shine. The glass is all in great shape as
well. All of the exterior electrical like the hideaway lights are
working properly. The original steel wheels are painted to match
and feature chrome hubcaps and thin white wall tires.
