I'm no expert but never seen a hood mounted tach on Mercury or Ford cars. Was it really offered from Ford? Looks like a Pontiac Tach kind of.

The hood tach (C9AZ-17A326-A) was available from Ford as an option in the 1969 Muscle Parts catalog, I don't recall it being standard equipment on any model.

Wasn't this a dealer added/over-the-counter factory option?

Yes, you could order it from any Ford/Lincoln/Mercury parts counter. It was listed in the 1969 Muscle Parts catalog from FoMoCo. That picture is clip from the catalog.
