Canon EOS 5D Mark III - 100 - f/5.6 - 46 mm
The Mercury Marauder debuted as a mid-year model, sometimes called "1963½" models. The Marauder featured a sloping notchback roof design, in contrast to the reverse-slated "Breezeway" roofline with a retracting rear window that was also used by the (1958–1960) Lincoln Mark III, IV, and V series. The more "fastback" Marauder was available on the Monterey, Montclair, S-55 (1963 only), and Park Lane models. Additional Marauder features included bucket seats, a central console, and other trim items similar to those in the Ford Galaxie 500/XL. This more aerodynamic roofline was developed for campaigning in the NASCAR circuit, and possibly assisting these models to be more competitive in racing.
In 1964, the Marauder became available in a four-door hardtop sedan, also with a more fastback roofline.
Many components were common to Ford and Mercury models including powertrain choices for the Marauder that were identical to the full-sized Fords. The 390, 406, and 427 cubic-inch Thunderbird V8s, (which Mercury labeled Marauder and Super Marauder V8s) were available, with 3-speed or 4-speed manual, or a 3-speed automatic transmission.
The Marauder was discontinued after the 1965 model year, with the role of the performance-oriented full-size Mercury available in a S-55 model, which was dropped in 1967.
