YAK Car Pic of the Day

74 montego wht whtfld r copy

jc yak nyBack when this 1974 Mercury Montego was new, there were several after-market companies offering custom bits to make the intermediate Merc look like a mini Lincoln Continental Mark IV. This example has the opera windows and trunk lid, but not the front grille and headlights seen on some cars. It might have seemed like a good idea, but I find it difficult to believe these guys ever found buyers for this stuff. Then again…

This one’s for sale in Wheatfield if you’re interested in owning your own little bit of 1970s kitsch.
