Mercury was hitting on all eight cylinders in the mid-50s thanks to cars like this gorgeous 1956 Mercury Monterey hardtop. Wearing Mercurys trademark yellow over black paint scheme and packing a rumbling Y-block V8, its a fantastic heavy cruiser for the guy that thinks Fords are just too ordinary. Add in a few upgrades and it becomes a favorite car for cruise nights and long-distance runs where comfort matters. Mercurys styling was a bit more extroverted than Fords, and the longer chassis allowed designers to create bodies that were a bit more upscale-looking. The 56 models were slightly revised from 1955, adding those peaked headlights and the wide chrome grille and bumper assembly that make this car easy to recognize even from a distance. The Saffron Yellow over Tuxedo Black combination is dramatic and incredibly appealing, showcasing the Mercs long lines and beautiful side trim. Theres plenty of chrome and stainless, dont worry about that, and the sweeping strip of stainless that stretches from the headlights to the door, where theres a neat little intake grille, makes the paint job look especially dramatic. Its an older paint job with some use on it, so its not perfect, but as it glides by, nobody is going to miss seeing this big coupe. Its just gorgeous. Most of the chrome and stainless trim is original, so its showing some age and could use some work, but even as it sits, this car makes one heck of a statement. The matching yellow and black interior was recently restored and looks pretty much as it would have in 1956. Vertical pleats on the seat, fantastic door panels that seem to echo the outside trim, and an arching instrument panel all make the Mercury feel very unique when youre behind the wheel. New black carpets help with the luxurious atmosphere and its quite possible that the dash is wearing original paint, so you know the color combination is legit. The big steering wheel has a leather wrap that feels substantial and helps muscle the big coupe around corners and the arching instrument panel puts all the gauges right in front of the driver. The original AM radio and clock are not working, which isnt really a surprise, but those things are easy and inexpensive to upgrade to make this a first-rate cruiser. The trunk is finished with black carpet mats, so it has a clean look that seems right in an upmarket Merc. Ford continually upgraded the Y-block V8 and by 1956, the Mercury version was displacing 312 cubic inches and making 225 horsepower. It feels muscular and torquey on the road and moves the big coupe with relative ease. Recently rebuilt, it still looks pretty original under the hood, which doesnt get in the way of the smooth idle or rumbling exhaust. A weekend spent cleaning things up would pay big dividends if thats what you prefer. Chrome valve covers dress it up a bit and that giant air cleaner is original equipment. Its nicely sorted and runs great, working well with the Merc-O-Matic automatic transmission to make motoring around town effortless. Manual steering lightens up nicely at speed and the suspension has that big car ride that makes cars like this a joy to drive. The dual exhaust system features Flowmaster mufflers, so its a bit racier than stock but the sound will ensure nobody complains. Flashy chrome wheels somehow look right on the vintage Merc and they carry right-sized wide whitewall radials for some 50s flair. A great entry-level cruiser that isnt the same thing everybody else owns. Big car comfort, Ford reliability, and a fantastic color combination make this Monterey a smart choice for anyone looking to have fun in an old car. Call today!... Read more

We see customs cross our paths pretty regularly here, but seldom do we encounter anything like this 1956 Mercury Monterey. This absolute one of a kind modded classic mixes a vintage foundation with some well-planned customization for a dramatic result. Care to stand out in any automotive crowd? Pull up behind the wheel of this truly inspired ride. This Mercury strikes an interesting balance - nostalgic and futuristic at the same time. It sports a multitude of well-executed modifications all over and yet retains its vintage identity, as if its been projected from its native mid-50s to the present. Its pearl white metallic paint, complemented with candy apple red on its roof, presents well and looks consistent from front to back - its a great backdrop that shows off the handiwork thats gone into making this such a distinctive looking car. Up front, the hood has been shaved and louvered, the headlight areas have been stretched with peaks centered over the bulbs sitting inside, and a grille taken from a Corvette splits the custom front bumper. In back, hand shaped rear quarter panels extend backwards, harboring a shaved deck lid and a pair of ultra-aggressive taillights that sit over a pair of exhaust tips extending subtly from the tail. The factory-configured chrome trim has been abbreviated while retaining its same shape, and its a very effective styling element. The interior makes a bold, resounding statement, with bench seats in both front and back whose textured red velour covers feature black inserts to match the door panels to each side and sit over matching red carpeting below. This is one spacious ride - youll notice right away just how much real estate separates the two rows of seating, which themselves are very comfortable and dont show much wear. Your backseat passengers will have no trouble with legroom here. The dash area has been left in its original configuration to create a very effective contrast with the modifications that have been added, and the sizable, fan-sized instrument cluster to the left and the signature Mercury scripted emblem on the passenger side have been refreshed, but look much as they did when this Mercury debuted. Adding audio accompaniment to your journeys will be an absolute blast - with a Kenwood AM/FM/CD player up front, sturdy speakers in the doors and a pair of subwoofers and an amp securely mounted in the trunk area, youll have no problem filling the cabin with sound. The trunk area is well-detailed, with a full size spare sitting in its upright position and a sturdy acrylic cover protecting the subwoofers from any shifting cargo inside. A 302 cubic inch V8 with a 4-barrel carb on top sits under the louvred hood to power this vintage Mercury. The powerplant is in great form - running very smoothly and looking sharp with its chrome, Mercury-badged air cleaner and Edelbrock valve covers that contrast with its nicely painted block. Owing to this Mercurys sizable front dimensions, theres all kinds of room to work around the engine, which pairs with a 3-speed automatic C4 transmission to make for a very solid drivetrain, and the collection of braided hoses inside the engine bay adds a nice, finished touch. Power brakes at all four corners makes stopping a low effort affair on this attention magnet that rides on its set of 15 vintage wheels carrying Coker Wide Whites. A dramatic look combines with an impressively strong running condition to make this 1956 Mercury Monterey a great acquisition for the collector who prizes an inspired, high-impact classic.
