Acquired in 2002 by the current owner, this Mercury Montclair was professionally restored by Harbor Auto Restoration over the next two years with outstanding results that remain evident. With good reason; this Saffron Yellow and Tuxedo Black beauty has a winning show history that includes events with the AACA (Jr. and Sr. National and Grand National Firsts), IMOA Nationals (Best in Class two times), IMOA National First, Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance (Lion Award), plus other respected shows with further class winning results. The Mercury is exceptional, including the undercarriage and engine compartment.
This Montclair convertible is one of 7,762 similar cars built. It is equipped with the dependable 225 horsepower, 312 cubic inch V-8 engine paired with the smooth three-speed Merc-O-Matic automatic transmission. Among the many amenities are power windows, seat, brakes and steering; Travel Tune radio, “Sea Tint” windows, dual spot lights, tissue dispenser, fog lights, curb guards, day/night mirror, vanity mirror, under hood light, seat belts, and power-operated lubrication.
This is a beautiful package of style and power that looks great from any angle with its low silhouette. The vibrant colors only add to the detail laden presentation.
