1954 Mercury Monterey
The 1952-1954 Mercury Monterey was a standout among early '50s Mercurys for exceptional styling and sound engineering, coupled with solid construction and high-quality fit and finish.
Monterey was a top-line subseries in 1952, then became a separate line (with a three-model Custom series further down the price scale) for 1953-54. Ford's flathead V-8 continued in the first two years, with its highest horsepower rating ever in Mercury tune. For 1954, the company's new Y-Block overhead-valve V-8 arrived with a five-main-bearing crankshaft and standard four-barrel carburetor.
After being a "little Lincoln" in styling and bodyshell for 1949-1951, Mercury again became more of a junior line in these years, with similar styling to Ford but on a three-inch longer wheelbase.
