The Mercury Marauder was the name of different automobiles made by the Mercury division of Ford Motor Company.

The early Marauder was a V8-engined large automobile. It débuted as a 1963½ model as a two-door “fastback” hardtop version of the full-size Mercury. Marauders were offered from the 1963½ to 1965 model years, then again from 1969 to 1970.

In 1964, the Marauder name was used to designate both two and four door models of the Mercury Monterey, Montclair, and Park Lane using a fastback roofline, rather than the reverse-slant Breezeway roof that had been introduced in 1963.

This fastback roofline was developed for both the Mercury Marauder and the Ford Galaxie for NASCAR competition, and may have helped with the many 1963-64 Ford Mercury victories.

Engine and transmission choices for these cars were identical to the big Ford, including 390 and 427 cubic-inch Thunderbird V8s, and a choice of 3-speed or 4-speed manual, or 3-speed automatic transmissions.

Marauders also featured bucket seats, central consoles, and other trim items similar to those in the Ford Galaxie 500/XL.
