16. Mercury Bobcat
Mercury has always been the also-ran brand for Ford. Many of the most popular Mercury cars such as the Sable were simply rebadged Fords. The Bobcat is memorable for being a clone of the Ford Pinto. The Bobcat didn’t have any substantial improvements over the Pinto in terms of design or performance.
The design of the Bobcat could have been more unique, but designers decided to take the easy route. The Mercury Bobcat was among the first Fords to be rebadged poorly, leading to a few decades of poorly-masked cars to hit the Mercury lineup.
