While Ford historians are unsure as to where exactly the name originated from, most agree that the Montclair gets its namesake from the upper-class community of Montclair, New Jersey, and while it’s not a certainty, it certainly looks the part. It’s decked with a brilliant two-tone color scheme of white on blue, wide white wall tires, and doesn’t look anywhere near its age of sixty!

Not all cars are created equal, and 1956 saw the addition of a new feature for Ford, the Lifeguard Program. Spurred by Robert McNamara, the program was a result Ford’s own crash testing and redesigned aspects of interior components to make vehicles safer in the event of a crash. Standard features included: safety “deep-center” steering wheel, safety “double-grip” door latches, and safety rearview mirror. While the public was initially responsive to the Lifeguard Program, even leading Henry Ford II to say, “McNamara is selling safety, but Chevrolet is selling cars,” 1956 saw the beginning of a shift in the American Automotive Industry. This Montclair is a piece of that very history.

It's more than just a pretty face, it features a 302 V8 and 5-speed automatic transmission, as well as a lot of modern amenities to really set this cruiser apart. Some of the upgrades include: AM/FM Radio with a CD player, power steering, power disc brakes, accusteer rack and pinion steering, and an impressive vinyl interior. When you get behind the wheel, hear that engine purr and listen to the automatic transmission seamlessly shift gears, it’s obvious that this is more than just a car: it’s a symbol.

In 1951, George Barris purchased a then brand-new Mercury Coupe for himself, it didn’t take long, and he had fully customized it, a passerby liked it so much that he ordered a customized Mercury for himself. This car became known as the Hirohata Merc, after its new owner, and would go on to be one of the most famous customized cars of the decade, thanks in part to Barris’ restyling and through traveling the county with GM’s Motorama auto show. This is how the 1949-1951 Mercury became a kustom car icon and now one of the most popular cars to turn into a full kustom. This kustom 1951 Mercury comes to us as a beautiful fair weather roadster, luckily the convertible top frame is intact and is ready for a soft top of your choice should you want the option. Sporting a crate 350 CID small block chevy backed by a 700R4 automatic transmission, this sled is ready for a long cruise up the costal highway or down Whittier Blvd. on a Saturday night. Painted in House of Kolor’s candy Brandywine this car is a real head turner! The interior is complete with a wonderful tan leather covering most every surface and topped off with a billet dash board. This ride sports power windows, power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, radial tires, alloy wheels, and tilt steering column.
