A rare ’68 Merc convertible with wood paneling treatment… Cool factor x100.

David Kirkel is the proud owner of a car that you don’t hear about very much. His Merc is a rarity with its paneling. 

David added…

“This is a rare convertible with 1 year only optional “Yacht Paneling.” Only 215 customers opted for the “Yacht Paneling” vinyl wood grain option generally only available on station wagons and some hardtops. It’s believed that there are only 15 convertibles left in running condition. The car is equipped with full power, 390 Marauder engine, factory AM-FM stereo, and A/C.”
