1972 Mercury montego GT 2
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
Mercury Cars of 1949 to 1951
The Mercury car model has been around since 1939 and was introduced as a
mid range priced vehicle by Edsel Ford.
Cars built between 1949 and 1951, would in later years prove to be very
popular amongst the Hot Rod Car Enthusiasts. They would reshape the steel
to produce cars that would set a new standard for Customized Vehicles.
Early model Mercury cars of 1949 to 1951 had a 90 degree V type, "L" head 8
cylinder engine with a displacement of 255.4 cubic inches. These engines
put out 112 horsepower at 3600 R.P.M.
Later model cars of 1955 replaced the "L" engine with the "Y" block V-8
producing between 188 and 198 horsepower dependant on the
engine type for that year.
This slide show is a part of a series of pictures of cars from different
car shows that I've attended here in Southern California U.S.A.
