Mercury Monterey 1969 - 1974

The Monterey was introduced in 1950 as a high-end two-door hardtop in the same vein as the Ford Crestliner. The Mercury line got a styling refresh for 1952, and added a convertible and four-door sedan to the Monterey lineup. A station wagon bowed for 1953. 1954 saw the introduction of the new 186 hp (139 kW) overhead valve Y-block V8.

For 1955 the car lost its status as Mercury's top model, replaced by the Montclair. The same year, it gained the 292 cu in (4.8 L) Y-block from the Thunderbird, producing 188 hp (140 kW) with the standard transmission or 198 with the Merc-O-Matic.

For 1969, the Monterey's wheelbase grew to 124 inches. The redesigned Mercurys were intended to emulate the Lincoln Continental.

The 400 cu in (6.6 L) Cleveland V8 was added for 1971, the last year for the 390.
