Mercury 1962-1978

Local assembly of Mercury models shut down in 1948, so by 1967 when dealers began importing Cougars the brand was again a novelty. Cougars arriving here new were RHD converted, however those imported since the 1990s are predominantly left-hand drive.

Sitting above Cougars in the Mercury Muscle Car standings are the Montego and Cyclone, which we rarely see in this country, however for something different they are worth a look. Just one popped up in recent sales and although priced at $70,000 that is unlikely to cover the cost of buying and importing a US-market Cyclone.

Full-sized Monterey and Park Lane models offer interesting alternatives to the Ford Galaxie and at very similar prices.
