Description

1956 Mercury Montclair Convertible
This is a 1956 Mercury Montclair Convertible that was owned by my late Father. The vehicle was purchased and restored in approximately 1977. The paint was redone again in the late 80's-early 90's. The engine is the original 312 ci V-8 with an automatic transmission and 12v electrical. To our knowledge the engine and transmission are original to the car. My father was very passionate about keeping the car "all original". This vehicle was never driven in snow, always garage kept and was taken off the road for the winters. We have been to hundreds of car shows with my father over the years and have never seen another 56' Merc Convertible. This is a relatively rare model, only 7,762 were produced in 1956!
The car has not been driven on the road for the past 3 years. We had it looked over at a local garage this spring. A new battery was put in (not the original style/type), new water pump, oil change, points, condenser and the ignition distributor wiring was redone. The car starts and runs good. Overall, its in good condition but does need work to make it a show car.
The body is solid and the paint is in decent glossy condition. There is 1 spot on the front of the hood where the clear coat has peeled off (see picture). Chrome and stainless is in good condition with a few dings on the side trim. Front and rear bumpers were re-chromed in the 80's. The only rust I can see is a small spot between the front fender and the front bumper under the drivers side headlight (see picture). The under body and frame are all undercoated. Tires are period reproductions from Coker Tire, hold air and have good tread remaining. Speedometer and odometer are not working, true mileage unknown. Interior seats were re-upholstered in the 70's and are showing a fair amount of wear (see pictures). The engine was rebuilt in the late 80's-early90's, to what extent I don't know. Passenger side door window is cracked. The medallion inside the trunk lock is loose. Original ignition and trunk key. Convertible top (white) is in good condition with no rips. Convertible extend/retract motors work. Rear differential does have a slight leak.
