Wouldn't it be great if the ladies didn't have to muscle that big scary steering wheel in order to park the Mercury? Sure would!

There was a tantalizing image of Ford's "Wrist Twist" steering wheel concept in the 1970 Motor Service's Encyclopedia, and it didn't take long to turn up this 1965 Ford promotional film. Sure hope the power steering belt doesn't break!

Back then the power steering was effortless. I rather liked that when it was time to park!

If you like seeing Fords, Mercs and Lincolns from the Sixties, go get a DVD set of the TV show "The Invaders".
