The early '60s Mercury was the definitive big car cruiser. Let’s face it, it was more of a large boat than a car. You could fit most of your neighborhood and have room left over for the dog! The car designs of the early '60s were just starting to streamline from the spaceship and fin designs of the '50's. The '50s were a great time in imaginative flair. From the huge fins to the chrome dashes, chrome side trim, chrome everything, the '50's were a fun time for the automobile. When the '60's came along the big three auto manufacturers started to clean up the edges a bit. The great thing was the cars really didn't get smaller, heck some of them might have gotten bigger! Also when you have that long of a wheelbase, you get a smooth ride. It evens out the bumps and also they started to get coil springs on all four corners. That helped out a lot. The Mercury was a cruising machine, with it long lean lines and great suspension, it just glided down the road. If you wanted the best riding car, you got yourself a Mercury.
