1958 Mercury Montclair Phaeton

New in the Houston showroom is a monster of a Cruiser that is ready to rip down the road. Powering this 1958 Mercury Montclair Phaeton is a 383 Mercury V-8 with a seriously unique 3-speed push button Mercomatic transmission only 5,012 of these cars were made. The vehicle 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, Montclair’s 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.[2] The dash was redesigned with a new three-tier instrument panel.. This was originally a California car and brought to Texas and had a recent complete re-spay. Cruise in style while sitting the original seats with new carpeting added recently. That vintage elegance is finished off with new white walled radial tires wrapped around the original hubcaps. Options on this ‘58 Monclair coupe for sale, includes: AM radio, power steering, power brakes, seat belts, cloth and vinyl interior. Cruise down the road in retro elegance.
