Mercury Monterey 1956 Description


1956 Mercury Monterey 2 Door "NO-POST" Coupe. BLACK exterior, GREY interior, chrome trim. Straight body, ZERO RUST, hot rod driver!!! Looking for an original ride that's not your typical bel-air at the car show? This could be it.


Found this car a few years ago in Northern California from the previous owner whohad the vehicle since 1981. Most of the modifications were completed during his ownership (engine, paint, interior, etc.) and he garaged it for many years except for the occasional weekend trip/car show. The odometer shows 55,XXX miles which I'm assuming are original due tohis extremely light use over the years. It was kept in a separate garage on his property undera car cover and had never seen a drop of rain. Since I bought the car, I've made modest tweaks to keep the car in it's original state while helping it perform like it should.It's still garage kept and meticulously maintained. My quick synopsis: IT'S FAST, FUN, RELIABLE AND DEFINITELY UNIQUE - MOST IMPORTANTLY IT'S A QUINTESSENTIAL 50S, BAD ASS HOT ROD !
