back in 2001 i wanted to get a 68 or 69 ford truck as a every day driver . as i was shopping i remembered these mercury trucks as a kid in canada .. looked up on the net and sure there was 3 for sale in my price range .. so i set out to get the one with the lowest mileage . 3 weeks later im up there buying it and the old man says to me "by the way.. this is the last one they made" well i know 1968 was the last year they made these ,and only 290 trucks were made .your saying this is the last truck ,,"yes" i did what resreach i could when i got it home and came up with rock solid in stone the last day of production but thats as far is i ever took it.
 now 9 years later i had 3 back opperations and cant restore a truck like i use too . i never got to have my old truck as a daily driver.
i have this old truck but dont drive it much, people are telling me it should be in a meusium .. so i didnt want to rack up miles on it . didnt want to change a thing on it .. i feel it deserves more than i can provide for it . and if its to go somewhere else , someone who can afford to give it a proper restoration and treat it for what it is ..
  so were talking trade here .. or cash ..

could be a nice classic pickup or a convertable .not interested in anything 1972+
pictures can be seen at mercurypickup . com  its the yellow 68 with a white grille  . or    bottom of the page on the mercury truck section ..   andrew
