To compete with Chevrolet’s Nomad that was launched in 1955, Ford Motor Company’s Mercury division launched their new model called Parklane in 1958 with a Ford made MEL V8 engine that gave an output of 360 hp.
Ford maintained a strategy of keeping the price lower by US$ 300 over the Nomad (in today’s equivalent it was priced Rs. 2 lakh lesser). This amount was a considerable difference looking at the final price of Rs. 16.4 laks (in today’s value).
Sales figures reflected it’s success - in two years the Mercury Parklane sold twice the number of all Nomad’s. However production of the same ended in 1960.
The Marauder variant of the Mercury Park Lane was a car with a more powerful engine that gave an output of 400 hp.
Created by Sergio Goldvarg, a Guinness Book of Record holder, each scale model is highly detailed and only 150-230 pieces created. There will be no re-run production of this model.
