1956 Mercury Montclair Additional Info:

National first prize AACA winner 1993. Has photo album of the complete ground up restoration. From the estate of a Mercury collector. He has owned this and a Turnpike Cruiser for decades. Both were well cared for. It has had only 5,000 miles since the restoration.
EXTERIOR: Painted 27 years ago but I tell you what, it looks like just rolled out of the paint shop. It is absolutely laser beam straight and body gaps are right on. I've been around it a couple times now I don't see any signs of rust, damage, cracking or bubbles. It has really proven itself. The paint is still a glass finish. Jambs are painted neatly, weatherstrips are soft. It also looks like literally every piece of exterior chrome has been replated. All the stainless has been straightened and polished. Has a premium set of spotlights on each fender with mirrors and handles inside the car. It is also dressed up rocker trim, stone shields, fender skirts and a continental kit in back. Has the flipper style hubcaps and radial white wall tires. White convertible power top is in very nice shape.
INTERIOR: It was completely restored to factory specifications. Has the correct upholstery with the gold piping. I love the Mercury head interior light. Seat belts have been added. The dash area is beautiful- steering wheel, instrument bezels, knobs are all beautiful. Interior lights work, even in the glove box. There's an owner's manual in there too.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Has original 312 motor with 4 barrel carb. Runs smooth! It was completely restored to factory specifications. Correct finishes, hose clamps and stickers. It features power steering, power brakes and also has the glass washer fluid bottle.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has a complete gray and white plaid liner kit. Restored spare rim with a white wall tire for a spare. Restored jack assembly. Well liner was replaced. Includes a soft car cover.
UNDERSIDE: During restoration the front end was gone through- springs, shocks, bushings, balljoints. Bottom of the motor and automatic trans are clean. Has dual exhaust with cherry bomb mufflers and correct tips in back. Fuel and brake systems were restored. The floors are completely solid including the rockers and braces. Frame is solid and smooth, painted black.
I think the 56 Mercury is a gorgeous car, full of style. This is an older restoration that has proven itself. Recently serviced, it functions really well.
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.
