1964 Mercury Meteor

Convertible

352 - V8 - Automatic

Canadian-built 1964 Meteor Custom Convertible with a Mercury body and Ford Galaxie interior. The engine is the 352-inch V8 that originally came with a 2-barrel carburetor but has been replaced with a 4-barrel. It has the Merc-O-Matic 3-speed dual range automatic transmission and it cruises very nicely. This Meteor has a working clock and original radio, an AM/FM-CD player under the dash. It also has power steering and brakes.

Great running car that is in great driver quality and really turns heads. Minor blemishes due to age but a very solid driver.

The major difference I found is that the 1964 Mercury built in the USA came with a 390-inch V8 as standard; while in Canada it was a 352-inch V8 with the 390 as an option. Other than that, everything from the Galaxie interior and different grille is Ford/Mercury produced, with the full-size exterior Mercury body.

Notable is that from 1961 to 1963, there was an American Mercury Meteor that in ’61 shared full size 120-inch wheelbase dimensions and ’62 shared mid-size dimensions with a 116.5-inch wheelbase. In ’63, the Meteor was a near compact Comet design on a slightly longer wheelbase of 116.5 inches versus Comet’s 114 inches.

During the time of the American Meteor sales, Canada changed its Meteor name to Monterey in ’62 and ’63 and then returned to the Meteor nomenclature in 1964 when Mercury dropped the line here in the U.S. In 1977, Mercury just used the same car model names for Canadian identification as its American counterparts.

This Meteor rides on a full size wheelbase of 120 inches. Notable, too, is that only 4,559 American full-size convertibles were ever built in Monterey and Park Lane trim. The Meteor’s run in Canada was much less, and perhaps even less than 1,000 units. (I’m still trying to lock down some solid production numbers of the Canadian Meteors). For history buffs out there, the first Mercury rolled off the assembly line in 1939 and the last one was produced in January 2011.
