    Hi Jared, Thanks for your comments! You certainly have a great potential street machine there and for only $175!! There are no Mercuries that I know of in Australia, and I think they have a real classic look about them, and you should benefit from their uniqueness. My vote would be for a good restoration and spend some time on the engine bay, cleaning it up and making it the jewel in the crown, so when you lift the bonnet, peoples jaws drop :-) Good luck with it. Cheers, Ian

    TY, In case your not aware, you have a fine classic there. Considering you only paid $175 for a car like that with such low mileage, dude, you should be on cloud eleven or twelve about now. If nothing else, look at it this way, you can fix it up or not and get more than your money back out of it, then buy something with more appeal to your specific tastes. You have a great starting point and I am curious to see what you do with it. If it were mine, I would do one of two things. I would either restore to factory specs or make an unmarked patrol car clone out of it. Good Luck and keep me posted. It's something different. Sure, you could probably have a lot of fun with a Mustang, Camaro, T-Bird or a Corvette, Impala or there's also the shoebox theory ('55-'57 Bel Air). But then you'd have a car like every other Tom, Dick and Harry has. To me I would have to ask, "Why?" Then I would say I want something different, an oddball if you will. Something you don't see everyday. You know what I mean? This is what I love about my ride. There were only 6,731 2 dr hardtops built in '72. Even less with the 351 Cleveland, as most '71 and '72 Monterey's came with the 400 or the 429. So, a 351 Cleveland isn't only different but desirable as these were the basis for some of the Boss and Mach 1 Mustangs. So, I have the best of both worlds. I have Mustang power and a rare machine that you don't see everyday. Think about it. Your ride has more potential than what I think your seeing at this point. Think about it. Here's an example; your at a car show and you are parked between a Mach 1 Mustang and a Camaro RS/SS. Now these are cars people see everyday. And 99.9% of the worlds population knows what these are. They will bypass them when they see your ride and they will ask you,"What the hell is that?" Dude, you will be opening some eyes to another fine Automobile. I've rambled enough, ttl.

    I'll give it five stars for the "cool, dare to be different, has potential" factor. What are your plans for it? Have you decided yet? Looks like you've got a nice clean ride to work with. Good Luck with it. Check out my ride some time and tell me what you think.
