I think the '58 Mercuries have a very refined, yet extravagant look to them. Yours looks really good, and I like the color combination.

What a find! Built back when it was easy to tell one car from another at a glance. These cars have character that so many of todays cars utterly lack.

The drum brakes on these worked perfectly. They really stopped despite being heavy cars.

1958 Mercury Montclair 4 door sedan (Clair)

Photo of a 1958 Mercury Montclair 4 door sedan (Clair)


very proud to say i just bought this beautiful original, rust free 1958 mercury Montclair. after months of searching for the "perfect car", i came across this one on kijiji and instantly fell in love. she's an all original Canadian car from Sudbury, ont. the man who first owned the car drove it very little, as he became ill, and retired the car in storage for 40 years. after the man's passing, someone else bought the property and sold the car to the man i bought it off of. so i am the third owner of this car. almost everything worked on her, and i couldn't turn it down for the price.

After some detailing around my car, i dug up some history on it. When i took the hub caps to re-do them, there was the original owners name painted on. His name was Kappo Sallo of copper cliff, sudbury ontario. This was painted on all four hubcaps. there are also various "esso" tags from a service station in sudbury. on these are lubrication charts, wheel changes etc. i found a half cigarette under the seat which tells me that the owner was a smoker.


under the hood, lies a 383 cubic V8, 330 horsepower marauder engine. near mint condition. brand new holley 4 barrel carb. has dual exhaust, and limousine ride.

Factory Options

power steering, power brakes, dual exhaust, multi-drive transmission keyboard, tinted glass, "visual aid group", "courtesy light group", locking gas tank cap, contour floor mats, padded sun visors, full disc hubcaps, fender mounted mirror, 3 lane rearview, padded dash, factory re-done AM radio, front and rear speakers and more.
