So rare, most people don't know they exist. I have a 1965 Mercury Park Lane convertible. They only made like 3,000 of them. If you google pictures of the car, it's the same as a Monterey, just with more trim. A lot of the old Mercury records were lost. If you google the car, pics will often show a 4 pronged front chrome piece. I noticed when I bought my car it had 5 prongs, and the center piece looked like it connected to more chrome. Bumper guards that run the length of the car. Since I started looking for it, I've seen a couple cars with it, and it really makes the car look nice. Since my car came with it, I wanted it, obv. But they don't make repro parts for these cars. Some of these rare chrome pieces are just impossible to find. So anyway, my bumpers are like a 7 out of 10, I am looking for some 9's, and I happen to find an ad on CL. I look at his other ads, he has a whole front clip froma 4 door monterey. No big deal right? EXCEPT ... it's a 5 prong car. And the chrome is there. And he's gonna sell it to me cheap!
It's a 4 door, so I wont have the door chrome for my 2 door convertible, but I will have the chrome for the front fenders, which I thought I would never find.
