Condition & Features

Is the Ford Pinto collectable or merely a punchline to automotive history? This 1977 Mercury Bobcat makes the case for the former, offering good looks that have endured the past four decades pretty darned well plus the kind of originality that makes seasoned collectors sit up and take notice. Yes, that bright red paint appears to be mostly original and the preservation on this Bobcat suggests that someone believed all along that it was worthy. Today, who defines what collectability means?

It’s got a few signs of age and use, but after all, it’s nearly 40 years old and it can wear those as evidence of a life well lived. Good proportions make it look stylish even today and with flared fenders and a few dashes of chrome, it looks sporty, not cheap. You can see echoes of big brother Torino in the front end and the two-door wagon has been popular for decades, offering just the right combination of utility and style. Nice chrome bumpers, a roof rack, and a fine-toothed grille all help the Mercury version of Ford’s compact look a bit more upscale. The tan interior is this car’s crowning jewel, a handsome bucket seat setup that seems to defy the passage of time. There might be some very slight wear on the outer edges of the driver’s seat, but we’re really picking nits at this point. The carpets, door panels, headliner, and even the dash pad all remain in excellent condition, and again the Mercury’s upscale look has an appeal all its own. Twin gauge pods give the driver speed and fuel level and match what Ford was doing in its other vehicles around this time. Options include the automatic transmission, factory A/C, and an AM/FM radio and everything works like it should. The back seat is pretty much made fo
