Mercury Retrospective
Starting in 1939 when it was introduced by the Ford Motor Company, Mercury was positioned between Ford and Lincoln in the Ford brand hierarchy, designed to compete against GM's Buick, Oldsmobile, and Pontiac brands. Over the years Mercury offered up some distinctive cars and in the sixties it introduced the first luxury Pony Car, the Mercury Cougar, which was a spin off of Ford's wildly successful Ford Mustang. Over the last decade Mercury offered few unique products and now it joins Oldsmobile, Plymouth, Pontiac, and Rambler in the graveyard of American automotive brands. Over the last five years I haven't shot too many Mercury magazine features but here's nine publication-worth Mercury cars from my archives. Mercury the automotive world is now poorer for your passing. All images copyright 2010 by Richard Truesdell and automotivetraveler.com, all rights reserved.

1975 Hurst Oldsmobile
George Hurst and Hurst Performance was responsible for some of the best known muscle cars as well as drag cars like the Hurst Hemi Under Glass Barracuda. While the 1969 Hurst Oldsmobile is considered as one of the muscle car era's high water marks, Hurst continued to build many limited production performance cars. By 1975 when this Oldsmobile Cutlass received the Hurst touch, the emphasis was more on refined performance than 0-60 times, it remained on top of the muscle car pyramid. This 1975 Oldsmobile Cutlass is a true Hurst Olds and except for a 1990 repaint, is all original, still owned by its original owner. Check out the swivel bucket seats, the console mounted tach, and the reversible front seat cushions. All images copyright 2010 by Richard Truesdell and automotivetraveler.com, all rights reserved.

1970 Pontiac GTO 455 H.O.
In 1964 John DeLorean, Jim Wangers, and Pontiac invented the iconic American muscle car with the introduction of the first Pontiac LeMans GTO. The Pontiac GTO legend was forged when it was compared to the Ferrari GTO. Throughout the sixties the Pontiac GTO got more powerful and remained at the top of the muscle car pyramid. This 1970 Pontiac GTO 455 H.O. is a reference restoration by Phil LaChapellE of Ventura, California's Automobile Classics and Musclecars and is faithful right down to the chalk marks on the firewall and the original Goodyear spare tire residing in the trunk.

1956 Mercedes-Benz 300 C
Although Mercedes-Benz didn't offer a factory-built 300 C station wagon for 1956, that didn't stop one enthusiast owner from asking Mercedes-Benz to build one for her. This Mercedes-Benz-based 300 C station wagon was custom built to her specifications and was one of the Top 10 sales at the 2010 Gooding and Company Amelia Island Auction. Combining timeless Mercedes-Benz styling with the practicality of a traditional rear-wheel-drive American station wagon, this Mercedes-Benz 300 C truly represents the best of all worlds, classic looks, luxury, and unprecedented practicality. Check out the photo of the Blaupunkt Mexico AM/FM radio. All images copyright 2010 by Richard Truesdell and automotivetraveler.com, all rights reserved.

1959 Ford Fairline 500 Skyliner Retractable Hardtop
While Ford didn't invent the world's first hardtop convertible, the Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner was the first mass hardtop convertible offered in a mainstream car line. Ford offered the innovative Fairlane 500 Skyliner retractable hardtop for three model years, 1957, 1958, and 1959. In 1959, after the introduction of the Ford Galaxie 500, the Skyliner migrated from the Fairlane line to the Galaxie 500 model. The Galaxie 500 Skyliner retractable hardtop was discontinued after the end of the 1959 model year -- it was rumored that Ford lost money on each one sold -- and it took almost 30 years before this better idea returned in the form of the Mercedes-Benz 230SLK.
