1975 Mercury


Lincoln-Mercury dealers marketed a re-badged variant of the Pinto, as the Mercury Bobcat, beginning with model year 1974 in Canada and 1975 in the United States.
The Bobcat was available as a 2-door hatchback or wagon, but Mercury did not make available an equivalent to the "sedan" Pinto with an enclosed trunk. Mercury wisely installed the Pinto's deluxe interior as standard trim to appeal to upper-market subcompact buyers.
The Mercury Bobcat differed from the Pinto with larger taillights, separate parking lights, a taller Lincoln-esque grille and somewhat fancier interior and exterior trim.
