1966 Mercury Monterey

A 1966 Mercury Monterey coupe in its factory-correct colors and the big 390 V8 under the hood is a beautiful thing. And when a turnkey cruiser is so value-priced, it means someone is about to get an exceptional deal.These Montereys are becoming a rare sight. Sales of the hardtop coupe barely crested over 19K in 1966, and now over half a century later, the remainders are few. So you'll be searching for a while before finding another a complete car like this. The factory-correct Jamaican Yellow is a striking color, especially with the premium black painted roof that gives this a true hardtop profile. These Mercs were big and blocky like their Lincoln siblings, so it's great to see all that sharply creased sheetmetal looking so good and aligned so well. Best of all, the brightwork is all present to make this coupe truly distinctive. It includes the grille, wide front bumper, fender trim, and the rear bumper that's so large it makes up half of the back end. Even the factory turbine-style wheel covers are in place, so yes, this is a real attention getter!Open the door to reveal a highly original and very luxurious black vinyl interior. When you slip into the driver's seat, you get that great feeling of upscale classic style with the thin dual spoke factory steering wheel that gives you a clear view of the bright gauge panel. This one stays faithful to its original driver-oriented layout with full round gauge panel, heater/defrost controls, and factory AM radio (non-working) all remaining in place. There are even provisions for air conditioning. With seatbelts for six and this level of comfort, you can already imaging how many people will want to go for a cruise in this large hardtop classic.But no matter if you're carrying a crowd of family and friends, or it's just you, this Mercury can handle it with ease. Under the hood is the large and powerful 390 cubic-inch V8 motor. The engine bay looks amazingly authentic with the big blue block and valve covers. The same V8 big block would make a few legendary Mustangs, so it can still move this big hardtop around with authority. But you don't want this for a muscle car. Having a Monterey like this is about reconnecting with a time when dad let you borrow his car for a big date, or you snuck it out so you and all your friends could have the ultimate Friday night in one car. And if you're too young for that, here's the perfect machine to make memories like this. That's because with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and a suspension that will keep you floating down the road, this Mercury is the perfect cruising coupe. Complete with owner's manual, this Mercury Monterey is one of those cars you might not have thought about before, but now that you see it, you'll never forget it. So hurry up, because at this value price, it's going to its new home soon. Call today!!!
