West Coast Classics present a mostly all original surviving example
of this very rare and limited H.O.R. production 1966 Mercury S-55 2
Door Convertible it's original factory specifications and desirable
factory options including; C6 Dual Range 3 Speed Automatic
Transmission, 2.80:1 ratio axle, Heater amp; Defroster, Power
Steering, Power Brakes, Power convertible top, Tinted Glass, Dual
Exhaust, amp; distinct and unique S55 sport options of Bucket
seats, front console, full carpeting, electric clock, bright
exterior trim, deluxe wheel covers amp; WW tires and it's original
'Q' code 428 c.i. 345 bhp 4BBL V8 'Super Marauder" engine! 1 of
only 669 of these legendary S-55 convertible models built in
1966!The sporty S-55 was an extremely low production
top-of-the-line and limited two year only full size model for
Mercury with only 669 built in 1966 amp; 145 in 1967 and this
particular example is a very rare DSO 84 "Home Office Reserve"
built car. This means that the order originated in the Dearborn
Ford Motor Company corporate headquarters. These cars were either
for executives as their personal company car or went into the
executive motor pool. The cars were usually offered to the dealers
as "program cars"! This particular example actually drives very
well and it was in the process of being prepared for a full
cosmetic restoration, before the previous owner had unforeseen
issues, and the car will now therefore need restoring cosmetically
after having been neglected for several years as it needs a
repaint, a new top and some of the all original interior needs
work. There is no rust in all the typical rust-prone areas and no
signs of any major accidents. All the power windows work as does
the power soft top frame. Mercury's revived big full size
performance car of 1966 returned after a two year absence and
featured 'Torque Box' construction, i.e. frames individually tuned
to minimize noise and harshness. A standard big block Ford 'Q' code
428 engine was matched to a heavy duty chassis with a sporty bucket
seats interior. A rare and very desirable high performance rag top
car with few such remaining.This is a rare opportunity to own a
great driving example in need or restoring of a very low production
1966 Mercury S-55 428 'Q' code Convertible!
