Mercury Monterey 1956 Description

1956 Mercury Monterey, Vintage 390CI powered Lead Sled!

Cars from the Fabulous Fifties offer audacious lines, "gee whizz" gadgetry, and definite curb appeal driving down any boulevard or parked at any cruise in. Sometimes the technology of the era leaves the driving experience something to desired. Some take a classic beauty like this and transform it into full sized car art, which again isn't practical for the street. Although this Mercury Monterey appears original, it is a mild custom. This vehicle has been professionally inspected by an independent 3rd party professional as a condition of consignment.

This '56 Merc is equipped with a newly rebuilt 390CI Ford V8, kept cool with a custom built heavy duty radiator and matched to a later model 3 speed Ford automatic transmission. For creature comfort in the California heat, the current owner also added Classic Auto Auto Air air conditioning. The refreshed interior trim is a correct reproduction in factory yellow and gray, which offsets the black exterior very well.

Under the same owner's care, since April of 2009, the car has only logged 300 miles since the driveline and mechanical upgrade. Tastefully personalized, grab the deep dish steering wheel and go! This Mercury full-sized top model is ready for where your imagination will take you.
