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.

Beautiful restoration! As you can see from the list in the video, some
engine mods were made, but everything looks original. Cale Yarborough raced
cars like this at the time. The paint and interior are perfection!

A nice example! The same underpinnings were used in Torinos, Cougars and
Mustangs of the era. A
nice, luxurious car! Nice paint and interior! This one has the bonus of

I finished painting this in Jan 2013. Removed the hood, deck, all trim,
bumpers, and doors. All panels were stripped and bodyworked (not much
bodywork needed). Painted 2013 Toyota/Lexus Sunset Bronze Mica (runs $900+
I also sent out the w/o and v-top mouldings and had all orig clearcoat
removed. Then they were polished. New non-padded top. Sprayed the 1/4"
stripe on the v-top moldings black bc/cc.
The Montego has a 400 2v completely stock.
The car runs and drives great.
Currently has 95K miles
