1979 Mercury Bobcat 1979
Lincoln-Mercury Public Relations Photograph
The Mercury Bobcat for 1979 - sporting the first major styling changes since its 1975 introduction - has a new sloping vertical-theme grille, single rectangular headlamps, a new more sloping hood and a bright bumper with black rubber end caps.  The rear end is highlighted by new horizontal taillamps on the three-door model (above) and a bright rear bumper with black end caps on both the three-door and station wagon models.  The acceleration capability of the snappy subcompact's optional 2.8-liter V-6 engine (not available in California) has been improved by the installation of a new camshaft and higher settings for the full-throttle shift speeds on the automatic transmission.
