1963 Rambler Ambassador 990 Cross Country

Top of the line. V-8, power steering and brakes. For the Kenosha Cadillac, this is as good as it gets. This Rambler is for sale, and the owner was good enough to let me examine it in detail.

1964 Mercury Montclair Marauder

Mercury just couldn't win with the public, but it was not for lack of trying. They substantially updated their full-size models every year, and their standard 390 c.i. V-8 was quite powerful. Yet in 1964 Mercury sold just over 100,000 full-size cars while Chevrolet sold 1.6 million.

Mercury offered three cars in its full-size lineup, the Monterey, the Montclair and the Park Lane. All three lines were available in two different body styles. The "regular" car was called Marauder, while the Breezeway had a electric rear-window. Mercury offered at least one Breezeway model every year from 1957 to 1965.

1966 Ford Mustang fastback

This car has the "Pony" interior option - little horses etched into the seat backs. The headrests are not original. 1968 was the last year cars could be sold with low-back seats.
