This is a very rare find, classic luxury performance with aftermarket performance upgrades to boot. This car is a matching numbers original factory ‘Home Office Reserve’ car, which meant it was built with every available option and sent to the home office in Detroit for advertising, promotional and executive use. They typically only made 3 or 4 cars a year with this designation. These are the vehicles that would be used for advertisements, shown to the public on tour or lent to the major magazines for testing. These 3-4 vehicles would be built in different colors, this one being originally maroon, which means in all likelihood this is the famous 1964 Marauder Fastback Sedan depicted on the Pikes Peak advertisements from 1964. This ‘Home Office Reserve’ designation is coded in the data plate and unique to this VIN number. The sub model is Parklane, which is the highest trim option. I have yet to see another one with all of these options.

This vehicle still sports its factory original driveline, but has had performance modifications such as an aluminum large tube radiator and 445ci stroker engine rebuild to put out 500hp. The transmission was rebuilt also at the same time. We are told this rebuild was done when the car had an original 80,000 miles on the chassis, which means it has about 9,000 miles on the restoration. This is a great looking and great driving Marauder with room for the entire family. It cruises easily at 70-80mph with its highway geared rear end and 3 speed Merc-o-matic transmission. This car came from the factory with every available option. Of course it has the power windows, which have been rebuilt with new modern motors and mechanisms and it also came with the 6 way power seat (currently not working). It is a factory air car! ICE COLD! The original A/C compressor stopped working so we have had it rebuilt with modern parts. We had a new modern condenser, dryer and compressor parts installed from Classic Auto Air and its converted to R134a. It was blowing out at 38 degrees when tested in the warehouse, and the warmest I saw while driving was 48 degrees. The blower and everything still works. This vehicle had the very rare dual fan switch for heat and a/c, nearly impossible to find functional representations today. The most rare option would be the cruise control, utilizing the ‘Price-is-Right’ style thumb-wheel on the dash top and a switch to lock in the speed. This under-hood unit then read the speedometer cables to control the speed. We are missing one cable which prevents this feature from functioning, but we are told this cable can be built special order. We can help with this if needed.
