Cool those 67's

My first car was a 68 Colony Park, so I'm biased and partial. Don't really like the "vent grilles" on the sides of the front fenders(have actually seen magazine ads where Mercury was bragging about those). At only $1,200, it's a better deal than the 68 up in Oakland. Oh, to have the funds and a lot to keep these things on!

Those side grilles actually were not just ornaments if the optional cornering lights were ordered, thought I've only ever seen a few examples in my life. Cornering lights were something only offered on the upper GM models until these at FoMoCo. It would be '68 before Thunderbird would get them.

Plus, for this one year only, Mercury would be known as "The Man's Car", and that bragging right is something even McGarret himself would not get!

When I first decided I wanted a wagon, this is the one I wanted. Alas, that was back in the pre-internet days, before Craigslist and eBay. I only came across a couple, and they were both wrecks.

Even today, I don't recall coming across any of these for sale that didn't need a bunch of work.

I almost remember some 67's with a lite but I'm not sure anymore. I tried to find a pic, hard to tell but I think it is a lite in this picture.
