1957 Mercury Other Montclair Chrome
Here's an all original unmolested 57 Montclair Phaeton coupe. Original Moonmist Yellow/ Black/ Moonmist Yellow car. A very striking combination. Very solid body. Runs very well. transmission shifts nicely. Currently registered and insured. Here's a rundown of it's features and condition. This is a good honest car. I have owned this car for 3 years. Have driven it several times from home to my shop, 10 mile trips on the freeway at 70 mph. Around town quite a bit. Have some old paperwork on the car. Looks like the original owners name was Clyde Gasser, from West Valley Utah. Has a notorized odometer mileage statement from 1981 stating 54,827 actual miles. When I got the car it had 1987 Utah plates on it and 57,000 miles on it.
Nicely optioned. p/s, p/b, Seat O Matic, Power Booster fan, town and country radio, power antenna.
312 Y block.

oil and filter change
intake manifold re surfaced.
rebuilt original Holley carb.
new heater control valve.
heater core cleaned and repaired.
new brake wheel cylinders and hoses.
Went through the treadle vac unit when I first got the car. It was clean and free from corrosion. Worked fine. Now it is starting to use fluid but still works ok.

Drives comfortably and effortlessly at freeway speeds
No cracks in glass, however there are numerous light scratches on the windshield.

Merc O matic transmission performs as it should.
All gauges work great. fuel, temp, oil, charging system working.

Most of the paint is original. the lower yellow body has been repainted. old minor amateur rust repair done behind rear wheel openings. very small area. about 3" X 3".

most of the chrome is pit free. minor pitting on grill, hood ornament, left taillight bezel

All the delicate white plastic dash knobs are very nice.
passenger area floors perfect, same with trunk floor.
Rocker panels rust free.
spare wheel but no jack.

A fun driver with patina or a good candidate for an easy restoration
