1965 Mercury Monterey in good shape.
It’s a real head turner. Perfect for Sunday drives for going to dinner or wherever. Not a pure care. Numbers don’t match and it is a crop top. It’s perfect for throwing the kids in the back and going for a cruise. It’s a blast to drive.
New transmission, carb was rebuilt. It runs smoothly and starts every time.
I’ve owned it for 20 years. The guy before me owned it for 15 years. It’s time for the next family to enjoy it.
