Maroon Manatee: 1969 Mercury Marauder X100

You can’t blame the insane prices of 60s muscle cars on the modern online auction sites. Certainly you can blame those sites for other righteously priced pieces of machinery, but the big block powered ’60s classics became expensive before most people had an internet connection…so it is surprising when you find something that is simultaneously cool, interesting, rare, muscly, and reasonably priced. Find this 1969 Mercury Marauder X100 offered for $14,500 in Long Beach, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
