Think fast! Name three domestic marques from the mid-Sixties that you wouldn't mind adding to your collection or purchasing as your first collector car. Sliding behind the wheel of a two-door Marauder, you quickly find that the interior is richly appointed with a full bench seat in front of you is a stunning yet simple silver-trimmed instrument panel sporting round gauges, the speedometer sits dead center over the steering column clearly visible behind the two-spoke steering wheel.Your line of sight over the long hood is unimpeded, with stately A-pillars that do not detract from your peripheral vision. Curved side windows--new in the 1965 Mercury lineup eliminate the glare potential, blind spots usually felt in the area of the C-pillars are virtually nonexistent and the vast expanse of side glass that the hardtop offers means a quick glance over your shoulder is all that's required to see what's beside you, turn the key and a V-8 jumps to life without a whimper.The rumbling big-block 390 engine residing under the hood of this handsomely styled Marauder produces 330 hp, slide the Merc-O-Matic transmission into gear and the seemingly lumbering giant is ready to jump to life. Throttle response is immediate and easily controlled without much effort.This Marauder comfortably floats over the blacktop below you, keeping up quite easily with modern traffic. The new-for-1965 suspension handles the imperfections in the road surface without transferring them into the seat of your pants, and the power-assisted steering is surprisingly responsive for a vehicle that measures 218.4 inches.This is a stunning example of a fully restored (with receipts), matching numbers 1965 Mercury Montclaire Marauder, powered by a 390 V8 Police Interceptor and driven by the original Merc-O-Matic automatic transmission with only 79,600 miles.It is equipped with power steering, power brakes, modern CD I pod music with a custom amp in the finished trunk.It runs and drives great, powerful, dependable, iconic looks and big enough to hold 6 adults.# 73227Now on display at the home of “over the top cars” CHECKERED FLAG CLASSICS 7743 MONTEREY ST GILROY, 408-847-8788 or 888-625-2774, sold as-is, California buyers are responsible for sales tax and license fees.
