1956 Mercury Montclair
The Montclair name was introduced in 1955 and applied to Mercury’s premium automobile line. For 1955 and 1956, Montclairs featured Mercury’s best appointments; extra chrome trim, and different two-tone paint combinations to set them apart from other Mercury products. 1956 was the year Ford introduced its Lifeguard safety program, and the Mercury Montclair came standard with a deep-dish steering wheel to help protect the driver from the steering column, safety door locks, a breakaway rear view mirror, and optional seat belts and padded dashboards. The dash was redesigned with a new three-tier instrument panel.
This Montclair was treated to a body of frame restoration previously and is just stunning. It starts, runs, drives, cools and charges just like it should. More details soon, however the pictures should indicate the condition of this car.
