1950 Mercury Monterey

The 1950 Mercury Monterey was a special edition model introduced late in the 1950 model run. This model from Mercury, as designed by Ford, was intended to offer a competitive alternative to the hardtop body style to consumers that rivaled designs lacking a center pillar from other marques. It offered a padded vinyl top, a unique interior featuring vivid striped body cloth, and chrome moldings – all features that were not seen on other Mercuries at the time. The model was available in three color combinations – two tone green, black with a yellow top, and metallic red with a black top – seen in our project here. This particular Monterey has been owned by our clients since 1954, but had not been in service after 1976.
