    Mercury Monterey

    The Mercury Monterey is a full-size near-luxury car introduced by the Mercury division of the Ford Motor Company in 1950. It would later share the same body style with the slightly more upscale Marquis, and the Park Lane and Montclair until the latter two were extinguished after the 1968 model year. 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 car served as the high-end, mid-range, and entry-level fullsize Mercury at various times throughout its run. It was the only Mercury to be in continuous production throughout the 1960s. The Monterey was discontinued after 1974.

    Initially the Monterey was offered as a two-door coupe only. In 1952 the Monterey became a separate model range with two and four door versions and a DHC, to be followed by a station wagon in 1953.

    Here is a 1950 Monterey coupe, appropriately shot at the Pebble Beach resort in Monterey.

    Cool, new threads about classic cars! These are highly appreciated.

    And there seemed to be a lot of Mercury models missing in the Hide Out as well.

    A humble thanks to you Ferrer!
