Very nice car but too bad he set that reserve as I don't think he'll get a bite. Very small market for Park Lanes. If it were a Colony Park in that condition, and he set it at $8500 BIN, it would probably sell in a couple of days at most.
Speaking of big Mercurys here is a 1974 Colony Park. It is 1 of 16 to have a special order color and you should get a look at the color. Interior is immaculate. How it has a Historical Vehicle Plate is beyond me. All of our fossil fuel carriers are now mothballed but the Navy seems to have missed one.
I think these cars say made in the USA in the same way that a nuclear powered aircraft carrier with a deck full of fighters says something bad is gonna happen real soon. There is just no place else on earth that ever had the audacity to build things like this. In 50 years this will be as classic as they come. And no jokes about me loving the big girls... Just the big cars.
