29: Mercury LN7
Most Mercury sports cars and coupes are rare in today’s world. The LN7 looks familiar because it is based on the Escort EXP. Here we have a car that had a lot of potential, although it wasn’t marketed well enough. Based on the Escort EXP the car had all of the bones to make it a fun driving experience.
But the car just didn’t add up to a sales success and it was quickly axed from the lineup. The Mercury brand at this point was almost a carbon copy of the Ford lineup. Because the Mercury LN7 is a fairly rare vehicle you can find it from time to time with low mileage. Reliability wasn’t a strong suit for these cars by any means, but what you got for the price was a fun driving experience. If you love to collect older Mercury models, the LN7 is worth considering.
