For eighteen years, Mercury a division of Ford built the Monterey, it was a full size automobile built in a body styles. The Monterey would serve as the flagship, mid-range and entry level offering for Mercury. It is also the only Mercury nameplate that would be in continuous production throughout all of the 1960's This absolute wonderful example we are pleased to present was first registered in AZ in 1955 and would not leave the dry Southwest climate until 2011. We have a copy of the AZ title upon being sold from what appears to be long-term ownership. The current consignor purchased the car and has used it very sparingly in the summer months here in northern Michigan. Several years ago, the car did undergo a complete mechanical rebuild with receipts. The 292 cubic inch V8 starts, runs and goes down the road with better than expected power. I have been all over this car and other than some paint fade which appears to be original and some very minor what is to be expected of a sixty five year old survivor surface rust on the very bottom of the rockers, this Monterey is solid as a rock. After putting a couple miles on this car personally, I feel like I could trust this to go just about anywhere. All the lights work, the brakes pull evenly and with a newer dual exhaust it sounds just right. These are getting hard to find in unmolested or unrestored condition in this type of shape.
