11: 1964 Mercury Montclair Marauder
The Mercury Montclair Marauder was one of the first performance cars to exhibit the Marauder nameplate. The Montclair Marauder is probably one of the best examples of an early Mercury muscle car gone wrong. While it was not marketed as a muscle car, these were the buyers that were going for these models.
The long, sloping body was heavy and hard to maneuver, and performance was lackluster at best. The Montclair Marauder ended up being one of the least popular cars in the Mercury lineup. Although the design was seemingly tailored toward muscle car lovers, the result was not pleasing.
