    Owned a lot of iron over the years but never a Mercury. Vowed I wouldn't buy anymore project cars as well. Stumbled across this and always thought they had good crisp lines. 1965 is at the end of what's acceptable here and it's the first non-50's era car in many years.
    No idea what the game plan is. Looking forward to getting it home and cleaned out. Call me crazy but I like the potential.

    Had one back in my younger days. Got rid of the shock towers, inner fenders, weak ass front suspension. Dual sprung, 5" custom dropped tube axle, mustang steering box. 486bbc, glide, 57 ford 9". Econoline bucket seats, aluminum interior, full cage. Heck of a daily driver.
    Yours looks like a nice start.

    Pretty sure the plug wires on the SOHC cost more than my Comet.
