ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE CARS OF THE 1950's-CAR OF THEFUTURE!!!
  • In mid year 1957 Mercury introduced America's "most changed car" - Turnpike Cruiser

  • This was the"King of the Road" and "Shining Star" for Mercury in 1957

  • It was "Jetsons meet Detroit" crammed with all the gadgets Mercury could imagine

  • These unique styling cues and wide array of gadgets included "Merc-O-Matic" push button transmission, seats with memory, steering wheel flattened at the top for better view of the road, Dual Headlamps (where legal), electrically retractable rear window for "Breeze-way Ventilation" and twin air intakes at the top corners of the "Skylight Dual-Curve" windshield with a Jetsons like antenna sticking out on each side. This ventilation system was sometimes better than air conditioning !!!

  • Safety features included : padded dashboard (the first of its kind), padded sunvisors, rubber housings for the tachometer and clock, deep-dish steering wheel and the wrapped around "V-angle" tail lights.

  • This particular example of a Turnpike Cruiser that is currently for sale is :
  • Nice rust free #3 driver quality car
  • Good paint, chrome and interior
  • Older restoration
  • Original chrome (except rear which has been rechromed )
  • 368 engine with no smoke or oil consumption
  • Power Steering
  • Power Brakes

  • Rebuilt front end (bushings, ball joints, tie rods, etc.)
  • Precision front end alignment
  • New exhaust
Due toshort production run (mid-57 thru 58) and fact that many of these cars where destroyed in demolition derby's there is a limited number of these cars that still exist.
