This 1956 Mercury Monterey has a terrific custom cruiser attitude with its detailed two-tone inside and out. As you look over the full package, this hardtop almost turns back the clock with its commitment to individual style and true charm.
You can tell this car has style even from blocks away. The red paint with white highlighting the hardtop roof has a timeless attractiveness. And as this one gets closer, you start to notice the details. They deleted the front badging so that the white pinstripes have a smooth canvas to take center stage. They flow from the hood, down the side, and onto the rear for a comprehensive appearance. The dual exhaust tips, side skirts, whitewall tires, and exhaust cutouts all add to this cruiser appeal. And of course, the Continental kit on the back gives this a longer and more sophisticated appearance. There's even quality in the fundamentals. The doors line up nicely so that the sweeping side trim has an artful style, and the big chrome bumper/grille combo has the bright look of distinction. Overall, what we like best about this one is the balance it provides. It's a true custom cruiser with a terrific look from every angle. But this is also not one of those cars that will only get trailered to the World of Wheels. Instead, this is a true cruiser and a real driver. So it will impress no matter if you're asked to join the parade route or just going on an ice cream run.
The two-tone red and white continues inside on the upholstery, side panels, carpeting, headliner with a bright and clean style. There's even red pinstriping across the full dash. So we know you'll be rolling down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop just so people can get a good look inside. The view from behind the wheel is pure 1950s cool. The instrument panel is a great-looking piece of industrial design, and it comes complete with plenty of bright trim to accentuate the dash. This Mercury Monterey was truly meant for cruising around the town, and so you are upgraded to an AM/FM/cassette stereo, modern speakers, and updated fuel gauge are all well-placed to make a better driver without taking away from the overall vintage atmosphere.
The Mercury V8 made for a great powerhouse for the cruisers back in the day, and so it's great to have an era-correct block still under the hood today. The 292 cubic-inch motor looks tidy, with the blue oil bath air cleaner with matching valve covers radiating from the darkness. It produces good power, and you'll love taking full control with the three-speed manual transmission.
This Mercury Monterey is one of the coolest ways to aimlessly wander the boulevard on a Saturday night. So don't let this distinctive hardtop slip away. Call today!!!
