This is one of 144 FoMoCo convertibles used in the Walt Disney designed Magic Skyway that was the highlight of Ford’s pavilion at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair. A dozen of those cars were early production Mustangs and a hundred of them were Ford convertibles, which means this is one of only 34 Mercurys made specifically for the World’s Fair, and it’s the only one in Palamino beige. It’s a one family car, bought by Ford Engineering employe Adolph “AJ” Jedryczka of of the Ford “B” lot where the Park Lane was offered for sale to Ford employees after the Fair was over. The Jedryczka’s daughter Virginia and her husband restored it after it sat in her parents’ garage since 1970. Not a survivor because it’s fully restored, but it’s a one-family, one-of-one numbers matching car that is surely one of the more collectible modern Mercurys that exist.
