Classic Car Overview

1960 Mercury Monterey $26,995

Concord, NC Black · 292 V8 · 58,419 miles
Rare, beautiful, and from a very interesting year, this 1960 Mercury Monterey convertible is the perfect way to look like a million bucks while only spending a fraction of that.

This was a year of distinction at Mercury. They had created a handsome design that wasnt too outrageous but also did not look like a dressed up Ford. It was the perfect balance that is as stylish as a well-fitting suit. And this Monterey looks like its truly ready for its black tie affair, dressed in nothing but a sleek black, whitewalls, and plenty of chrome. It starts up front in a sophisticated presentation where the headlights almost look like they are floating in the waterfall grille. Along the side, there is an unbroken trim line that follows the kick up for the nicely integrated tailfin. In the back, the taillight surround provides the perfect design balance between the upper trim and the mirror-like chrome bumper. This is truly a class act. But one of the most amazing feats of this whole vehicle is arguably the roofline. With its large back window and sweeping c-pillar, it looks like a Lincoln hardtop when the power folding soft top is in place. That really tells you the level of style that went into a Mercury.

The interior looks like a tuxedo. Black and white alternate and weave within each other to create a very sophisticated presentation. It has an overall appearance of authenticity, which will just help draw even more attention if you park this one with the top down. As a full-size convertible, youll always be ready to take family and friends for a Sunday cruise. But this classic is also fun when its just the driver. When you sit down, youre immediately reminded of what classic luxury feels like. The chrome on the steering wheel coordinates with the intricate presentation of the dash, and the wide speedometer dominates your view.

This Mercury has been free from add-on or gimmicks so far, and so you will be glad to see that continue under the hood. The V8 is believed to be the correct 312 cubic-inch motor from the era. Its presentation is quite nice with the big blue air grabber that still has the correct stickers, and the M logo valve covers are that perfect 60s cool. This is a well maintained powerhouse, and so the V8 fires up nicely and idles like a smooth Mercury should. The same effortlessness can describe the ride and its overall demeanor on the road. But anytime you want a hint of the wild side, the control of the column-mounted three-speed manual, and the dual exhaust will allow you to let this Montereys hair down in an instant.

We know you havent seen many like this. After all, Mercury only produced 6,062 examples, and that was well over half a century ago. So you know its special when you find a classic like this that comes complete with title docs, owners manual, maintenance records, and even a wiring diagram. So dont let this rare opportunity pass you by. Call today!!
