Dear friends,

Finally, the 1964 Mercury Breezeway is on the way to USA.

And you may remember, it took longer than expected, as I decided to modify the Coupe, and finally made it as a four door.

I hope you will like the result.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

My Uncle Eddie  had a '63 in white. I loved his Mercury. Steve

Well, it comes at a time when I'm considering a de-four-dooring of my collection. Sigh.

I absolutely loved the '64 Mercury but hated the "Breezeway" roof line rather than the "Marauder" scat back roofline. The "Breezeway" design just took all the 'coolness' out of its looks and turned it into a 'ho-hum' family hauler. Well... IMHO anyway. Despite that, this is a really well done model that absolutely nails the look.

Any idea if a shipment might soon be on its way to Goldvarg dealers in the UK?

A great looking model!  Thanks, Mr. Goldvarg.  It makes me remember this one:

@d-m-holcombe You know, despite being a Packard fan (and once owning a '56 Packard for 20 yrs) .....I NEVER made this "rear window" connection. Good eye David.

I always believed the Merc breezeway was simply a style extension of the 1958-60 Lincoln's inverse rear window treatment. But you're quite correct...The Predicator came first!

EXCELLENT choice on the four door configuration, Mr. Goldvarg.  Thank you!

@d-crowe I am a diehard fan of the 2dr. body style (and station wagons) but I must admit it is nice to see Sergio producing many 4drhts and sedans for the many fans of such cars.  They will no doubt find the rather unique Breezeway roof design a valuable addition to their collections.  Great color selections too.  I had forgotten about the coral color being offered on this car back in the day; it wasn't seen as much as other 64 Merc colors as I recall.  I hope to see a fastback and/or a Colony Park wagon one day!

@d-m-holcombe 

Funny, but I always thought the roofline was borrowed from the back half of the 1956 Plymouth Plainsman concept station wagon roof, only reversed!
