Really nice car!  I like the front-end style.

Did they make this style of Torino only for a limited time?

It's a 1972 Mercury Montego GT, the Mercury version of the 72 Gran Torino Sport. I don't know the details of all the Mercury trim levels, the MX is the one I recall hearing of the most.

The Torino for 1972 up was a bottom trim level of the main model, the Gran Torino. 99+% of all 72-74's were Gran Torinos, the Torino was an ugly duckling version of the Gran Torino. Ford finally dropped the base Torino trim level.
