In 1956 Mercury had a successful product strategy that emphasized powerful and modern overhead­valve V-8 engines, glamorous two-tone paint treatments, and a multitude of standard and optional amenities. Mercury advertising read You are ready to start a beautiful new friendship with a car that looks big, rides big, and is big in every way your 1956 Mercury. It goes on to emphatically state,

Your Mercury gives you not just beauty, but distinctive, exclusive styling; not just higher horsepower, but more useable horsepower; not just higher resale value, but the best resale value in the field. In addition, the five NASCAR Grand National victories won by Mercury in 1956 created even more enthusiasm and favorable press for the marque.

This Montclair Convertible is one of a reported 7,762 similar cars built, and it is finished in attractive two-tone Lauderdale Blue with Classic White adorned with gleaming chrome and stainless trim elements and enhanced by matching two tone blue/white upholstery and white power top. The Mercury is equipped with the dependable 312-cid V-8 engine with a four-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust. It is paired with a Merc-0-Matic automatic transmission for ease of use and smooth motoring. Among the amenities include power steering, AM radio, clock, dual fender-mounted rearview mirrors, rear fender skirts, Continental kit and wide whitewall radial tires with full wheel discs. The Montclair runs and drives excellent and is an outstanding auto for the discerning collector. It benefits from a recent cosmetic freshening that included fresh paint and carpeting.
