OPTIONS DESCRIPTION
I replaced AM radio with AM-FM Stereo from '69 station wagon.

MISCELLANEOUS EQUIPMENT

Added capacitive discharge ignition. Converted carburetor to manual choke, replacing troublesome automatic choke. May replace distributor with modern self-contained electronic model. May add water/methanol injection to carburetor in order to keep original high-compression cylinder heads while using modern inefficient chemically modified gasoline.

GENERAL INFORMATION AND HISTORY

My mother bought car from Holiday L-M used car lot in Fort Worth on March 24, 1973; odometer read 35,910. She wanted a Mark III, but I convinced her to buy this unusual Mercury. After engine broke 2 oil pump shafts in mid- 1980s, I traded a '69 Montego hardtop for the Marauder which was driven only a few hundred miles a year afterwards. It may not have been driven since 1989-90, has 1990 Texas registration sticker on windshield.
