1956 Mercury Monterey
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

Fully Customized with Only 715 Miles on Modern Build
The current owner of this 1956 Mercury Monterey Hardtop purchased it back in 2010 as the 4th total owner. He informs us that it underwent a multi-year, frame-off restoration to restore it to better than new condition in virtually every possible way. The entire build is highly documented as well so there’s no guesswork involved with this beautiful classic. With a modern fuel injected drivetrain and extensive upgrades to the suspension, axles, exhaust and brakes, this is closer to a modern performance car wrapped in a ’56 Mercury frame/body. The curb appeal and ride quality are sensational!
Additionally, this 1956 Mercury Monterey Hardtop is gorgeous in person with an immaculate body and true show quality paint and trim work. The undercarriage is just as impressive and this stunning example could easily pass for a brand new classic vehicle by most collectors’ standards. The highly customized interior is also pristine with lots of convenience extras and an amazing sound system. The photographs do not do this one a bit of justice- it takes your breath away in person with “Best in Show” potential on most stages.
Truly Outstanding Build Quality Both Inside & Out
Overall, this 1956 Mercury Monterey 2 Door Hardtop is one of the most outrageous custom classics we’ve ever seen at this price point and there’s simply no chance that it remains available for long.
