“This rust-free Marauder two-door hardtop was originally built in 2005 in the first episode of the sixth season of the Wrecks To Riches reality TV show,” the listing states. “It is designated as Super Muscle Car #8 built by Barry’s Speed Shop in Corona, California as verified by a custom tag attached to the firewall. The exterior has been restored and refinished to pay tribute to the Parnelli Jones legendary race-winning #15 1964 Mercury Marauder NASCAR stock car. The roof is metallic blue with a white #15 graphic. The main body is white over red with 410 H.P., Mercury Marauder, Parnelli Jones, and 15 graphics. Exterior features include chrome bumpers, quad headlights, a chrome grille, chrome racing mirror caps, side pipes, and a set of six taillights with integrated reverse lights.”

It rides on a set Intro wheels with blue centers and staggered-size radial tires. This Mercury has power steering, Baer power disc brakes, and dual MagnaFlow side-exit exhaust outlets.

The interior’s front seat, rear trim, and door panels are upholstered with black vinyl. It features a matte black roll bar, black carpeting, racing lap belts, a floor-mounted automatic shifter, and Flaming River tilt steering column. The radio, heater, and rear seat have been deleted.

Under the hood is a rebuilt 460ci Ford FE V8 engine with MSD ignition, Edelbrock aluminum heads, and aluminized headers. The engine is paired with a C6 automatic transmission with a Currie 9-inch Ford rear axle.
