Mercury [6] - Palomar

Although Mercury no longer made a two-door station wagon, this concept car demonstrated the possibilities of the hardtop design on a newer body style.  The third row rear seat elevated and a second windshield popped up to allow a "yacht-like" view for rear passengers.  The name was borrowed from Mt. Palomar Observatory.


Mercury's Palomar two-door hardtop station wagon featured a roof with an opening rear section. When open, the rear seat rose and a small windshield popped up allowing the passengers to see over the roof. The concept car was named in honor of Mt. Palomar Observatory in California.
