This striking 1955 Mercury Montclair has everything a classic mid-fifties cruiser should have. A continental kit in the back, beautiful two tone color (Persimmon Orange and white) showcasing that the exterior is both shapely and having clean lines at the same time. Classic radial tires to go along with the whole setup. The interior carries through the two tone with a colorful two tone orange/white dash and the white seats.

The vehicle name was introduced in 1955 and applied to Mercury's premium automobile line. Ford historians are at a loss as to where the name originated; the consensus is that it's taken from the upper class community of Montclair, New Jersey. 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.
