"A magnificent American car is in good used condition but requires attention and service in order to once again dominate the highways."


The car was imported to Sweden in the spring of 2014. That was the owner's dream car. He spent a lot of time and effort getting the car in the condition he desired. An engine overhaul was performed, among other things.

The most recent inspection was in July of 2016. The meter indicated 53,008 miles when the car landed in Sweden; now it reads 53,174 miles. That suggests the car was only driven 270 miles after arriving here. Unfortunately, the car has since been parked in a garage.

The car is outfitted with a towbar and rear air suspension (Air-Lift).

  • Mechanical condition:

    Custom Racing in Örebro renovated an engine in the spring and winter of 2017. The previous owner also completed a lot of his own work, such as underbody inspection and painting. During the inspection, the car could not be started, but the engine rolls around. Because the car has been sitting for some time, the new owner should perform a check and servicing.
    Both in terms of the previous owner's efforts, information, and what could be seen during the examination, the body and undercarriage appear to be in good condition, however no promises can be offered due to the car's age and partly unknown past.
    Certain electrical equipment could be checked during the examination, and everything looks to be operational but requires overhaul and service.

  • Interior condition:

    The entire front and back of the sofa appear to have been reupholstered. The door sides and roof are most likely original. The floor is covered in fabric carpeting. The dashboard, instrumentation, and controls are all original, however various gauges and equipment have been retrofitted.

  • Exterior condition:

    The color is a nice light blue with off-white stripes and a plenty of chrome. The car was definitely renovated and painted a few years ago, although it's impossible to say. The paintwork, chrome, and glass are all in good condition, although there are some minor scratches, dents, and wear. Damage to the left front wing approaching the door. The tires appear to be in fair condition, and all hubcaps are present. Numerous intriguing features and a flurry of design solutions from the late 1950s. Boot and engine compartment are in good shape.

  • General condition:

    For its time, this was an extremely elegant and luxury car. It has been standing since 2017 and deserves to get back on the road. Fundamentally, a well-kept classic that, with an inspection and servicing, will please the next owner and anybody else who sees it pass by.

Facts about the model

Mercury blev ett nytt märke hos Ford 1938. De ville ha en vagn mellan Ford och Lincoln, som kunde konkurrera med Buick och Oldsmobile som ju fanns mellan Chevrolet och Cadillac, hos huvudkonkurrenten GM.

Mot slutet av 50-talet när Ford hade sin nya Edsel på G, beslöt man sig för att knuffa Mercury uppåt i värdekedjan närmare Lincoln. Till 1957 tog de så fram en ny modell Turnpike. Det var en uppgradering av Montclairversionen och fanns som två- och fyrdörrars hardtop samt cabriolet. Motorer erbjöds med 6,0 - 7,0L. De var utrustade med Merc-O-Matic automatisk växellåda och dåtidens elektriska lyxutrustning. Elektriska fönsterhissar och t.o.m. en bakruta som kunde fällas ner, kallad Breezeway samt tryckknappsautomat etc.

Mycket av design och olika detaljer andades den "rymd- och raketålder" världen var inne i då. Vagnarna var och mycket riktigt rikligt utrustade med mycket krom och ljusarrangemang. Det blev bara två årsmodeller. Mot slutet av 50-talet blev det ju sisådär för Ford, bl.a. med den nya modellen Edsel som floppade. Samtidigt hade krom och fenhysterin nått vägens ände och relativt snabbt ställdes bilproduktionen om till en mer avskalad och kompakt design. En Mercury Montclair Turnpike är en av den tidens verkliga designklassiker med extra allt.
