apparently the design inspiration for this car was a shoe box. Makes you wonder how a car like this ever get approved for production when you think of the layers of approval required. Nice photo though.

Mercury Zephyr: the most boring car design ever. But that, honestly, makes it more interesting to look at than the anonymously swoopy compacts made today.

Tony and Anon 2 hit the nail on the head. Great little car, and this one is rocking some awesome faded paint and primer.

Profile makes me wanna take a nap. Those "plate over meshies" hubcaps are pretty sick too. I bet some people have had a lot of fun with this platform on Cardomain.

Well Tony, Justin sad to say but you guys and I are the odd men out again. I actually like this car. Friend had a 2-door, brother had a wagon. Not much to look at, but easy to fix, drive and use- a utilitarian Ford/Merc design. As far as being the most boring- how about the Chevy Citation or the boxier Celebrity?

i wouldn't call it boring at all.

simple, plain, bland, yes--but to a degree beyond anything else you're likely to see.

which doesn't mean i want one, but i'll still photograph the heck out of 'em.

got another one i'm stalking right now.

My uncle drove a brown metallic Zephyr wagon with "wood" trim when I was a kid. It had these same hubcaps....good memories of that car!
