The Montclair name was introduced in 1955 and applied to Mercury's premium automobile line. Ford historians are at a loss as to where the name originated; the consensus is that it's taken from the upper class community of Montclair. New Jersey.  For 1955 and 1956. Montclairs featured Mercury's best appointments. extra chrome trim. and different two-tone paint combinations to set them apart from other Mercury products. 1956 was the year that Ford introduced its Lifeguard safety program. and the Mercury Montclair came standard with a deep-dish steering wheel to help protect the driver from the steering column. safety door locks. a breakaway rear view mirror. and optional seat belts and padded dashboards.  The dash was redesigned with a new three-tier instrument panel.

This exemple has been completely restored to like-new condition. and is finished in beautiful two-tone blue both inside and out.  The car is fitted with the correct 312ci V8 with 9. 00:1 compression and single 4-barrel carburetor with dual exhaust. good for 235 horsepower! This engine required the three-speed Merc-O-Matic. which remains in place. Options on this car are extensive and include power steering. power brakes. radio with rear seat speaker. clock (functional). stainless steel rocker panel moldings. rear stone guards. fender skirts. windshield washer. heater/defroster. and “Mercury” script door sills! The car rides on an attractive set of Mercury head hubcaps with 7. 10-15 BF Goodrich Silvertown 4-ply tires!
