Actually both Ford and Mercury trucks were available in Canada. Often small communities her could not support two dealers so Mercury was allowed to sell trucks to support themselves. Mercury also sold a "Falcon" in 1960 called the "Frontenac" but soon had the Comet to sell when the Edsel marque folded. Stu
See the Robert Redford and Morgan Freeman Movie called Unfinished Life, there's a NICE looking '64 to '66 Mercury M-100 you get some fairly nice shots at during the movie that Redford drives and fixes and sit's in...
FE, I'm looking for pictures of the unibody trucks not the F/M-100s. 64, thats what I'm looking for, but thats a Ford. The mercuries were more upscale, with more chrome and a wraparound back window. I've tried looking for pictures of them on the net, but they seem to be pretty rare.
A buddy of mine had a 63 in high school.It had been customized by a previous owner using the parts from a buick wildcat.It had the buckets,console(with factory tach and shifter) and tilt steering from the buick as well as the 401 engine.After we spun a crank bearing twice in the buick mill we swapped in a 429 Police motor.The thing was pretty quick for a truck.He sold it once he started college.Sure would like to have that truck today.
