Description for Mercury Parklane 1965

It's time to stop and take a serious look at a rarely-seen 1965 Mercury Park Lane hardtop. It has a ton of originality, right down to a believed original 390 big block V8. So when a classic coupe with this much power and distinction is also quite affordable, you know this is a very hot deal. How often have you seen a Mercury Park Lane coupe? These are truly a rare sight with only about 6,800 produced in... 1965. Now over half a century later how many of these classics do you think are remaining? Plus, this example has some interesting pedigree as it's believed to be a one-owner car all the way until 2012. These Mercs were big and blocky like their Lincoln siblings, so it's great to see all that sharply creased sheetmetal looking so good and aligned so well. Best of all, the brightwork is all present to make this hardtop truly distinctive. This includes the grille, wide front bumper, fender trim, and the rear bumper that's so large it makes up half of the back end. Factory-correct Polar White gives it a sophisticated look, and it has the right tone for people to ask you about the car's history. The addition of Mag-style wheels hints at the power without losing the vintage attitude. Inside, you're instantly reminded of Mercury's upscale market placement. Two wide benches of nicely pleaded seats offer plenty of room for '60s-style luxury. There are great features like power windows and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo mounted cleanly below the dash. This coupe has plenty of sporty attitude, too, with machine-turned metal trim along the doors and dash. The thin dual spoke factory steering wheel gives you a clear view of the bright gauge panel. And it all makes you feel like the king of the road. Under the hood is the correct 390 cubic-inch V8 motor. The engine bay has a bit of flair with polished Mercury valve covers and a bright air topper with 390 callout. The motor fires up eagerly and has a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. The same V8 big block would make a few legendary Mustangs, so it can still move this big coupe around with authority. But you don't want this for a muscle car. Having a Park Lane is about reconnecting with a time when dad let you borrow his car for a big date, or you snuck it out so you and all your friends could have the ultimate Friday night in one car. If you're too young for that, here's the perfect machine to make memories like this. That's because with a Ford-o-Matic automatic transmission, power steering, and a suspension that will keep you floating down the road, this Mercury is the ideal cruiser. This Mercury Park Lane is one of those cars you might not have thought about before, but now that you see it, you'll never forget it. So hurry up, because at this value price, it's going to its new home soon. Call now!
