1956 Mercury Montclair Lead Sled

 

History

 

The Mercury Montclair was a full-size automobile produced by theMercury Division of the Ford Motor Company from 1955 to 1957, the M-E-LDivision of Ford Motor Company 1958 to 1959 and by the Lincoln Mercury Divisionof the Ford Motor Company from 1964 to 1968. Its appearance followed theconcept show car in 1954 called the Mercury XM-800.

 

The vehicle name was introduced in 1955 and applied to Mercury'spremium automobile line. Ford historians are at a loss as to where the nameoriginated; the consensus is that it's taken from the upper class community of Montclair, NewJersey. For 1955 and 1956, Montclairs featuredMercury's best appointments, extra chrome trim, and different two-tone paintcombinations to set them apart from other Mercury products. 1956 was the yearthat Ford introduced its Lifeguard safety program, and the Mercury Montclaircame standard with a deep-dish steering wheel to help protect the driver fromthe steering column, safety door locks, a breakaway rear view mirror, andoptional seat belts and padded dashboards. The dash was redesigned with a newthree-tier instrument panel.
