I have no personal interest or stake in the eventual sale of this 1962 Mercury Monterey 2dr Sedan.

Note:  The only options the original buyer specified were the 292 ci V8, optional for Monterey, and the two-tone paint ($22).  The 223 ci six-cylinder the base engine.  This Monterey has manual brakes and steering, dog-dish hubcaps, no radio, no clock but whitewalls which might be a recent addition.   The seller's checklist has good information for a potential buyer.

One should make sure it didn't have a history of rust,

since it is at least currently in Minnesota.

 

However, it appears very nice.  Those taillights are

noteworthy in themselves, and the paint color is a

bit unusual too.  Cars out of the ordinary tend to

catch my eye, and thank you for sharing this find, Steve.

John;

 

Good advice to inspect for rust, Minnesota cars suffer as badly as those here in the Northeast.  Out-of-the-ordinary is much more interesting than the usual cruise night, another-humdrum-one-of-the-two-dozen-in-attendance.  These once ubiquitous, now scarce everyday cars are much more interesting when encountered.

 

Appears as if the original buyer acted on this Mercury dealer promotion: $55.95/month for the quality and prestige of a Mercury Monterey!

A friend, an expert professional restorer, told me that

1962 Fords are particularly prone to rust.  That caution

may extend to the 1962 Mercuries--I don't know.

John,

Other than the styling details, there is hardly a dime's worth of difference between the 1961-'62 Fords and Mercuries.  Both experience the same problems.  Well, with the Mercury, one received one-inch greater wheelbase and four more inches plus of rear overhang...
