Classic Car Overview

For 1956, Mercury sedans underwent an exterior revision, trading its crest badge for a "Big M" emblem. The side trim was revised to a full-length multi-tier chrome spear, with two-tone paint combinations becoming more widely used; the Montclair retained its window-line contrast panel. The update brought several functional revisions, including a 12-volt electric system, standard dual exhaust, and an automatic self-lubrication system (for the steering and front suspension). Mercury added its own version of the Ford Lifeguard safety system; a deep-dish steering wheel was standard, along with safety door locks, tubeless tires, and a breakaway safety glass rearview mirror. In addition, childproof rear door locks, seatbelts, and a padded dashboards were introduced as free-standing options. The 292 V8 was replaced by a 312 cubic-inch V8, producing 225 hp.

This outstanding example of the upscale offering by the Ford Motor Company is an older restoration done with many original parts. The paint, chrome, glass, stainless trim, interior are all very nice. It has some original, some rechromed, parts and it runs like a Swiss watch. The 312 V8 has the power and runs down the road great and the unique 3 speed Merc-O-Matic automatic transmission.
