Burn It With Fire: 1984 Mercury Lynx

The lynx rufus (commonly known as the North American bobcat) is a medium sized wildcat that hits the scales at somewhere in the sub 40lbs range and can top 30 mph in sprint.  The Mercury Lynx is a small sized econobox that hits the scales at 2200 lbs and can hit about 86 mph...but I'd guess that having a real live bobcat in your garage would be far less dangerous than a Mercury Lynx.  Find this 1984 Mercury Lynx offered for $999 in Placida, FL via craigslist. Tip from Dascpcu.

  1. This thing has to be as rare as any of the homemade kit cars featured on this site. I know, as I sold Lincoln/Mercury products from 1983-1986.

    1. 3 years is a long time to sell Lincoln/Mercury products...have you recovered yet!?!?!

  2. Actually, this truly is the Missing Lynx. Pretty rare. Has the 2L Mazda diesel with 5 spd manual. Mighty 52 hp, but reported to have 68 mpg for a range of >880 miles (long slow miles).

  3. $999 in Placida? Add another 9 in Spokane.

    Wrong coast for this one.
