A Restored 1965 Mercury Park Lane Convertible
Mercury’s top-of-the-line Park Lane convertible is one of the most nostalgic cars of the ‘60s and our ’65 convertible stands out for a number of reasons:
- Restored for beauty and reliability
- Records galore
- 390 cid V-8 Marauder engine–rebuilt
- Finished in gleaming Turquoise
- Automatic transmission
- Power steering and brakes
- Build sheet
- Shop manual
For those of you who would like to decode the VIN, it is:
Paint and Chrome
This car has a nice respray in its Turquoise finish.
The chrome and stainless are in good condition.
The underside is in good condition with typical surface rust on some of the non-undercoated surfaces.
The Blue vinyl seat upholstery is in very good condition and shows extremely well. The door panels are also very nice. The dash pad is generally nice but has some peeling.
Likewise, the white convertible top is in good condition and operates correctly. (see video)
The engine in this Park Lane is the powerful 390 cid V-8 with a 4bbl and the Marauder upgrade. The engine was rebuilt about 14,000 miles ago (see receipts) and it starts and runs properly. The engine compartment is clean. It is smooth-running and a pleasure to drive.
The car has an automatic transmission that shifts properly.
Tires, Brakes, Comfort and Safety Systems
The car is equipped with four Hankook 225/75R15 tires with much of their tread remaining, mounted on steel wheels with original spinner hubcaps.
There is, of course, power steering—and power brakes with disc brakes up front—to make driving—and stopping—effortless.
The safety equipment (lights, wipers and turn signals) all work. The horn and back-up lights will need attention.
The car’s convertible top was replaced and the top and glass rear window are in very good condition. The lowering/raising mechanism works properly.
The Classy Family Cruiser That Defined an Era
The Park Lane convertible was a car that helped define the ‘60s as families wanted a car with more pizzazz that could take 4-6 people out on the town. Now you can relive that era with an extremely nice example of these fine cars from Mercury Motor Company. This Turquoise convertible will be equally at home at the Friday night cruise-ins, local car shows or the ice cream shop!
