For Sale: 1956 Mercury Montclair in Volo, Illinois

Vehicle Description

This is why it was called the fabulous fifties; cars had style! This convertible really makes a statement. It won't go unnoticed anywhere you take it.

EXTERIOR: It shows really well. The body is straight, lines up nice and doesn't show any rust. Painted fender skirts are included. Beautiful 2 tone colors are polished smooth and glossy. Overall the chrome and trim is straight and shiny. Extras include a continental kit, rocker trim, stone shields and dual mirrors. Fat white walls wrap around 4 bar spinner hubcaps. The white convertible power top is in great shape.

INTERIOR: Sharp looking 2 tone interior restored to original condition. The seats are reupholstered, door panels were replaced. The metal trim was repainted. Nice looking dash area. The instrument numbers are same color as the car, cool. Interior lights work.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It has the 312 motor with a 4 barrel carb. The carburetor looks like it's been rebuilt. The motor is clean and stock. Original valve covers, air cleaner and manifolds. Features include power steering, power brakes and a windshield washer system. The engine bay is clean overall.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has a clean appearance. New well liner. The floor liner is good. It has a jack, the spare tire is in the continental kit.

UNDERSIDE: The floors appear to be very clean rust free metal. They've been prepped and painted black. The chassis has also been cleaned and painted black. The front-end components look good. It has dual exhaust with Cherry Bomb mufflers. The fuel tank has been replaced. Bottom of the motor looks clean. We just had the Merc-o-matic professionally rebuilt, over $3,000. The drive shaft was rebuilt.

To buy a car that makes a statement these days will typically cost well over $100,000. This one is about half that price and will turn heads everywhere you drive it.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year membership.
