This gorgeous, black 1956 Mercury Monterey cruiser has very clean lines and clean interior. The pin striping on the trunk and hood add to both its character and to its appeal, by adding that extra touch of flair it is now quite the unique ride; plus having the Lincoln style door handles, it's lines are even smoother. 2 doors and a maroon/white interior, this car is sure to turn heads on the road and at the roll-in.
The Marquis-Monterey body was built on a longer wheelbase and had a longer body than the Ford LTD, Ford Galaxie, and Ford Custom. During its production the Monterey served as the high-end, mid-range, and entry-level full-size Mercury at various times throughout its run. This 1956 model, along with the rest of Ford, Mercury cars started to sport the Lifeguard safety equipment. The deep-dish steering wheel and safety door locks were standard.
