In 1963, Bill Stroppe was charged with bringing the Mercury back to stock car racing. He was given a big budget, encouraged to hire big name drivers like Parnelli Jones and in general 'go for it'. So he did, and Jones, driving a car called the Mercury Marauder, became a force in major stock car racing. What resulted was a big car with a 120 inch wheelbase and more than 215 inches long. The most attractive model is this two-door hardtop. One of the most prominent elements of the design is the huge rear overhang, giving the car a deck length approximately equal to its hood length. Though great for trunk space, the big overhang was ungainly. The simply drawn roofline of the Marauder is one of the best-looking pieces of the design. The front end offered a full-width outwardly V'ed grille, quad headlights and a massive chrome bumper. The rear was more attractive with tailfins, a trio of taillights on each side and a bumper that meant business. A big-block 390 cu. in. was relentlessly conventional, but it could turn out 330 horsepower and a wheel-spinning 427 pound-feet of torque. Unfortunately for performance, the big horsepower and torque numbers were squared off against a very heavy car. Maybe not the best muscle car of its time, the Marauder was a stout performer.
