1964 Mercury Super Marauder Concept

1964 Mercury Super Marauder was created by the legendary customizer George Barris for Mercury. It was powered by a 427 V8 and featured side-mounted exhaust pipes and a chopped windshield. The overall length was cut eight inches, and the wheelbase shortened four inches from the production Marauder.

The wheelbase of "Super Marauder" is five inches shorter and overall length eight inches shorter than the standard Mercury. It is built for two passengers, with no top. The windscreen and side windows are designed to eliminate the need for goggles at high speeds. Two futuristic headrests in the filled-in deck area are individually adjustable and contain rear turn signals. Velocity stacks are incorporated into the bonnet to accommodate a multi-carb system not yet out of the drawing board stage. The engine is a stock 427 inches. Two front fender intakes feed air to the brakes. Exhaust exits through outlets in stainless steel moldings just ahead of the rear wheels. The steering is a two-handle type, utilizing conventional power steering. The exterior finish is "Golden Cinnabar," a bright Vermillion color.
