SORC 2012 1973 Mercury Montego GT

This is something of a tribute video to Chris Bischof's video that got me really excited about this race way back in 2003. My average on the northbound leg was 90.004 mph, which was good enough for second place in the class, but my average of 89.722 on the return leg resulted in a 9th place finish.

1972 Mercury montego GT
Our 72 Montego Gt thats awaiting restoration. This car was suppose to be the 72 cyclone spoiler GT but Mercury changed their minds and made it the Montego GT. Most came with bench seats and 302 small blocks.This one is rare with the hounds tooth bucket seat interior which is white with black carpet, console and rallye dash.It had the rare rim blow steering wheel which has long since disappeared a long time ago. Also this one has the rare 351 Cobra Jet Motor option. I cant find any info on the half white vinyl top. its the only one ive ever seen this way. There is not another one like this on the Montego Gt registry website.Its quite possible it might be one of one which would make it the only one with this vinyl top option.Please dont ask me if you can buy it. Its not for sale now or in the future.
