1980 Mercury Bobcat

The Bobcat was Mercury's version of the Pinto, and, along with the Comet (the 70s one), was one of the worst Mercury rebadges. Before the seventies, Mercuries were always a little special, but from then on they became Fords with a different grill. The Bobcat/Pinto was intended to compete with the small Japanese hatches, popular during the fuel crisis, but the Pinto's reputation for bursting into flames did it no favors. This Bobcat is in fantastic condition, and the "sport" wheels look great.
