The 1965-66 Mercury Park Lane Breezeway (in the white, click for the next screen) had a power rear window at a 45 degree angle. Gorgeous. My grandparents owned one just like this. Ford, you’re making a big mistake. Without Mercury, you’re just…Ford.

In the red, the 1969 Mercury Cougar convertible. I still want one.
