Donald "Whitey" Whiteman has only put about 2,000 miles on the Mercury Grand Marquis he acquired a couple of years ago, rolling up the total distance this still virtually like-new example of the last of the genuinely full-sized American cars has covered to a mere 8,000 since it rolled out of the showroom in 1976.

"I should drive it more, but I just don't have the time, what with working every day," says the 77-year-old, who still turns up daily at the Sterling Ontario Ford dealership he apprenticed at in the early 1950s to drive customers around, make parts runs and "change the odd light bulb."

"I like to drive it," Whiteman says of his outlandishly large, in modern car terms, cream and bronze two-door 1970s time capsule.

Story continues below advertisement

"I like the ride, and the power," although he describes himself as a cruising type guy, never a tire squealer, "and I grew up with them." Them being the grandly scaled cars of an extravagant American automotive era that began in the 1950s and of which the big Merc was among the final full-size holdouts.

General Motors would launch its downsizing drive with its 1977 lineup, but Ford and its Mercury division and Chrysler wouldn't introduce smaller, but still pretty full-figured versions of their full-size models, for another two years.

The term "full-size" appears to have come into use in the early 1960s, perhaps to ensure buyers understood the difference between what was seen as the standard-sized family sedan and the new compacts and intermediates. And full-size meant just that, lane-filling width and a length of some 5,250 mm that grew to the 5,700 mm between the bumpers of Whiteman's Grand Marquis. That number means it stretches out further than a modern Cadillac Escalade's 5,624 mm, although not quite as far as the Rolls-Royce Phantom's 5,834 mm.

And, of course, there is its considerable weight, the Grand Marquis tipping the scales at a modern monster SUV-like 4,679 lbs or 2,122 kg. A big chunk of that is made up of the cast iron in the block and heads of the optional 460-cubic-inch V-8 under its landing-strip-length hood that made 360 hp. A 400-cubic-incher was standard. But, of course, it also developed massive amounts of torque, which was applied to the rear wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission to provide a smooth flow of acceleration, sort of like water being forced through a pipe of ever diminishing diameter.

A 1970s car buyer's guide describes the Grand Marquis as Mercury's "Queen Mary" noting it was one of the quieter big cars, with much better than average road manners and EPA average fuel economy ratings with the 460 engine of 13 mpg (U.S.) or around 18 litres/100 km. In 1976 it would have set its first owner back $6,439 (U.S.).

The Marquis name was first used on a line-topping two-door hardtop version of the Mercury Monterey in 1967, the Mercury brand providing a slightly more upscale option for Ford buyers. The Marquis name replaced Monterey in 1975 and Grand Marquis was initially applied to the top trim line of that range. It became a model in its own right in 1983, which remained in production until early last year when the Mercury brand, created in 1938, was axed by Ford.

If not quite the height of Ford Motor Company luxury in the 1970s – its Lincoln division provided that – the Grand Marquis was certainly a ride, particularly in its two-door hardtop form, that would have drawn admiring glances from those who appreciated traditional-style American motoring, a group that includes Whiteman.

As the dealership's long-time service manager, one of his perks was driving a succession of the latest models. "And I was always a big-car man.

"When I was taking a new car from the lot every few months, I had Monarchs, Grand Marquis and Crown Victorias. I always stuck to the big cars."

And he still does, garaging a 1987 Lincoln Town Car, also in mint condition and with only 50,000 miles on its odometer, beside the Grand Marquis.

That Whiteman's career and car preferences became linked to Ford may have had something to do with growing up literally "over the fence" from the dealership started by Howard Wells and a partner "back in the Model A days."

Wells hired him as an apprentice mechanic in the early 1950s. Wells Ford Mercury Sales is now being operated by the third generation of the family. And all four of Whiteman's sons had part-time jobs there while growing up, and one has put in 30 years or so as a full-time employee.

Whiteman spent 35-plus years as the dealership's service manager – serving Ford as part of its Professional Service Managers advisory group – and planned to retire in 2000, but "was talked into staying on," the family-run operation sticking with him, along with his now-departed wife Shirley, through a lengthy bout with a paralyzing illness.

Whiteman's Grand Marquis, which has "everything on it" in the way of options, has never been painted and, with only 8,000 miles under its wheels, shows barely any patina to indicate it's been around for 36 years, one of only 9,207 hardtop Grand Marquis made in 1976.

This truly grand survivor was originally sold in the United States and spent most of its life there, much of it apparently in a museum. The story behind why somebody handed over $6,439 (U.S.) for a car most would have been more than a little proud to be seen behind the wheel of but who only put a few thousand miles under its wheels remains a mystery.

1974 Mercury Monterey For Sale

Mercury Monterey

For the Monterey minivan produced from 2004 to 2007, see Mercury Monterey (minivan).

Motor vehicle

The Mercury Monterey is a series of full-size cars that were manufactured and marketed by the Mercury division of Ford from 1952 to 1974. Deriving its name from Monterey Bay, the Mercury Monterey served as the replacement for the Mercury Eight, the debut model line of the Mercury division. During its production, the Monterey would be offered in multiple body styles, ranging from coupes, convertibles, sedans, hardtops, and station wagons.

Over its 22 years of production, the Monterey served as the flagship, mid-range, and entry-level offering of the full-size Mercury product range. The only Mercury nameplate to be in continuous production throughout the 1960s,[1] the Monterey was slotted above the Medalist, Custom, and Meteor; later, it was slotted below the Turnpike Cruiser, Montclair, Park Lane, and Marquis.

Following the 1974 model year, Mercury discontinued the Monterey, consolidating its full-size range down to the Marquis and Colony Park station wagon. For 2004, the Monterey nameplate was revived, becoming the counterpart of the Ford Freestar minivan; it was produced through the 2007 model year.

Early history[edit]

The Monterey (model 72C) was introduced in 1950 as a high-end two-door coupe as part of the Mercury Eight series in the same vein as the Ford Crestliner, the LincolnLido coupe and the Lincoln CosmopolitanCapri coupe in order to compete with the hardtop coupes General Motors and Chrysler had introduced the previous model year. Montereys had either a canvas covered convertible for $2,146 ($23,084 in 2020 dollars [2]) or vinyl for $2,157 ($23,202 in 2020 dollars [2]). Standard features included leather faced seats, simulated leather headliner, wool carpets, chrome-plated interior garnish moldings, two-toned dashboard, special black steering wheel, fender skirts, dual outside rearview mirrors, full wheelcovers & gold winged hood ornament. For $10 more all leather seats were an option. Two special colors were offered, Turquoise Blue with dark blue top and Cortaro Red metallic with black top. Black with yellow top was also available. Few Montereys were sold.

Mercury got a styling and engineering redesign for 1952, such as 18% more window area.[3][6] Monterey became a separate series and Mercury's top model line, a convertible and four-door sedan were included in the new series lineup. The heater and vent controls were changed to levers and placed on a plane set perpendicular to the dash behind the steering wheel, inspired by flight controls in large aircraft.[7] A station wagon bowed for 1953, the same year a Siren Red Monterey Convertible became Ford's forty-millionth car produced.[8] 1954 saw the introduction of the new 161 hp (120 kW) overhead valveFord Y-blockV8, as well as the bubble-top Monterey Sun Valley, which had a Plexiglas front half roof which was similar to that of the Ford Crestline Skyliner.[3] The 1954 Montereys also received other alterations, such as new, lower taillights. The Mercury XM-800 concept car, first displayed at the Chicago Auto Show early in 1954, debuted as the Mercury Monterey XM-800.[9][10][11]

For 1955 the car lost its status as Mercury's top model, replaced by the Montclair. The same year, it gained the 292 cu in (4.8 L) Y-block from the Thunderbird, producing 188 hp (140 kW) with the standard transmission or 198 with the Merc-O-Matic.[13] It used independent ball-joint front suspension.[14] Brake size was increased.[15] It was available in two lower-priced trim packages called the Custom and with Medalist as the most basic model. The Medalist lasted only one year as Mercury moved further upscale in 1957.

1956 brought another new engine, the 235 hp (175 kW) 312 cu. in.[13] This year, along with the rest of Ford, Mercury cars started to sport the Lifeguard safety equipment.[16] The deep-dish steering wheel and safety door locks were standard.[16]

The fullsize Mercury was redesigned for 1957 and grew considerably larger as well, riding on an exclusive 122 in (3,099 mm) wheelbase. A new frame design allowed a lower floor which made the car look lower and longer. Interior features included a front seat track stop(to keep the front seat from breaking loose), a new design for the safety steering wheel, a new radio, and memory power front seats.[17][18] The station wagons were divested from the Monterey series, with the Commuter, Voyager, and Colony Park lines. The 312 Ford Y-block gained 20 horsepower to go with the added weight, and the 290 hp (220 kW) 368 cu in (6.0 L) Lincoln Y-block V8 became an option.[13] Early 1957 Montereys had two headlights however later examples were fitted with four.[19]

1958 brought an all-new engine: the 383 cu in (6.3 L) MELV8. With the new engine came the Multi-Drive three-speed automatic transmission.[20] As tailfins became to gain favor with competitors, Mercury sought to downplay the appearance and offered similar appearances but with much less dramatic bodywork.

For 1959, the Mercury Monterey (and Montclair) grew in size, adopting a 126-inch wheelbase.[20] The Mercury-derived Edsel Corsair and Edsel Citation were discontinued; for the first time since 1940, Mercury used its own chassis and body.

The Monterey was offered in five bodystyles, including two and four-door pillared sedans, a two-door convertible, and two-door and four-door Cruiser hardtops.[21][22][23] Taking its name from the discontinued Turnpike Cruiser, the Cruiser was given a large compound-curved rear window (styled as a fastback). To improve interior access and driver visibility, the forward-swept A-pillar was made nearly vertical.[24]

Initially designed for potential production as both an Edsel and a Mercury,[20] the Monterey inherited several design features from the division. The dashboard grouped all instruments and controls centrally around the steering wheel, with thermostat-style climate control (air conditioning was optional), power driver seat (with memory position), and a pre-set speed warning (a precursor to cruise control) offered as options.[24] The "Big M" badging was replaced by lettered Mercury badging across the hood; a scripted "Mercury" badge was added to the interior.

Serving as the base-trim Mercury sedan, the Monterey received a 210 hp 312 cubic-inch V8; the previous 383 cubic-inch V8 (producing 280 hp) was optional.[25][26] A 3-speed manual was standard on the 312; a 3-speed automatic was offered as an option (the only transmission offered on the 383).[26]

For 1960, the Monterey underwent a facelift; along with visually reducing exterior trim (and tailfins),[27] the update shifted its appearance closer in line to the newly introduced Mercury Comet compact sedan.

For 1961, Mercury underwent a major transformation of its model line. In a transition from 1957-1960, Mercury again shared a bodyshell with a divisional counterpart, shifting from Edsel to Ford, with the Monterey becoming the equivalent of the Ford Galaxie. The Montclair and Park Lane were discontinued, shifting the Monterey from the base-trim Mercury sedan to its flagship, slotted above the newly-introduced Mercury Meteor (as with the Comet, intended as an Edsel before the discontinuation of the division).[29] One of the first examples of downsizing, by adopting a common chassis and body with Ford, the Monterey lost six inches of wheelbase, nearly two inches of width, and over 4 inches of length; dependent on powertrain, the 1961 Monterey shed over 300 pounds of curb weight. At 120 inches, the Monterey was given a 1-inch longer wheelbase than the Galaxie.

The Monterey was offered in four bodystyles, including two and four-door hardtops, a four-door sedan, and a two-door convertible.[30][31][32] Sharing its roofline with the Galaxie (except for the Starliner fastback), the Monterey differed primarily by its grille; in place of two large taillamps, Mercury used six small taillamps. While slightly more adorned than its Galaxie counterpart, the Monterey continued to adopt more subdued styling, shifting chrome trim nearly entirely to the front and rear fascias and the roofline.[29]

Shared with the Ford Galaxie, the Monterey again received the 292 cubic-inch Y-block V8 (175 hp), with the option of 352 and 390 cubic-inch FE V8s (220 hp and 300/330 hp, respectively).[29] As before, 3-speed manual and 3-speed automatics were offered, with a 4-speed manual becoming an option.

For 1962, the Monterey served as the entire full-size Mercury line, as Mercury shifted the Meteor nameplate to its all-new intermediate sedan range. The six-cylinder Monterey 6 was introduced, inheriting a 135 hp 223 cubic-inch Mileage Maker inline-6 from the Meteor.[29] To better distinguish the Monterey, stylists added a convex grille (opposed to the flat grille used by Ford); the taillamps were added to the end of the tailfins (further reducing them in size).[33] Intended as the Mercury counterpart of the Ford Galaxie 500XL, the Mercury S-55 was introduced as an option for two-door Monterey hardtops and convertibles, offering front bucket seats, floor-mounted shifters, and special trim. While offered with any Monterey engine, the S-55 option also offered a 405 hp 406 cubic-inch V8.[34]

For 1963, the Monterey underwent a substantial revision to its roofline, reintroducing the retractable rear window used by the 1958-1960 Continental model line and the Mercury Turnpike Cruiser. While again using the reverse-slant design, the power-window mechanism was borrowed from the station wagon line. Named "Breezeway", the retractable rear window was standard on all non-convertible Montereys and S-55s.[35] The front grille adopted a sharply-divided concave design, with the six-lens taillamp rear fascia making a return. As a 19631⁄2 vehicle, Mercury introduced the Mercury Marauder as a trim package for the Monterey; to better compete in racing, Mercury mated the body of the Monterey with the roofline of the Ford Galaxie hardtop.[1][36] While technically a Monterey trim package, the Marauder option could be combined with the S-55 trim.[37] The powertrain line underwent a similar revision, as the 223 six and 292 and 352 V8s were dropped, with a 250 hp 390 becoming the standard engine; a 300 hp 390 was offered, along with 385 hp and 405 hp versions of the 406 V8.[38] As a running change during 1963, the 406 was replaced by a 427 cubic-inch V8, in 410 hp and 425 hp outputs (the latter offered only through special order).[39]

For 1964, Mercury revised its sedan offerings; while the S-55 was discontinued, the Montclair and Park Lane made their return. In another change, the Marauder fastback was introduced as a four-door hardtop (giving Mercury a second roofline distinct from Ford); while performance-oriented, all three Mercury sedans offered the Marauder roofline as an option. In line with the Ford Thunderbird, the entire front fascia became more convex, with a more closely-fitting front bumper. Coinciding with the Montclair and Park Lane, the Monterey was reintroduced as a two-door sedan; the four-door hardtop was only offered as a Marauder fastback.[40]

For the 1965 year, Mercury redesigned its full-size line, with the Monterey again serving its base-trim sedan. Growing in size to a 123-inch wheelbase (4 inches longer than Ford), the Monterey adopted an all-new chassis and redesigned rear suspension, abandoning leaf springs for a coil-sprung live rear-axle.[41]

While again derived directly from the Ford Galaxie, the exterior of Mercury sedans adopted multiple design elements from the popular Lincoln Continental, branding the entire Mercury model line designed "in the Lincoln Continental tradition".[42] In place of the vertically-stacked headlights of Ford, the Monterey adopted four horizontal headlamps; the grille was styled similar to the Continental, adopting straight-lined front fenders. The rear fascia was also styled similar to the Continental (adding two taillamp lenses to the bumper); all vestiges of the tailfins were removed. The Monterey was now offered in six body styles, offering two-door and four-door sedans, a four-door sedan with a "Breezeway" rear window, two-door and four-door hardtops, and a two-door convertible.[43][44] The Breezeway roof was now limited to 4-door sedans; as an alternative, hardtops were fitted with passive "flow-through" ventilation.[42]

The powertrain was carried over from 1964; a 250 hp 390 V8 was standard, with optional 300 hp "Super" and 330 hp "Interceptor" versions.[45] A 425 hp 427 V8 was also offered as an option.[45]

For 1966, the Monterey underwent some minor styling revisions. The taillights were redesigned (removing the lower lenses from the bumper), adding chrome trim bands; the side front fender vents were redesigned. Two-door hardtops received a new roofline with thinner C-pillars.[1] The engine lineup underwent multiple changes, as the 390 was increased to 265 hp (275 with automatic); the Super and Interceptor versions were dropped, replaced by a 330 hp 410 cubic-inch V8 (exclusive to Mercury).[46] The 427 V8 (largely a racing engine) was dropped, with Mercury introducing a 345 hp 428 cubic-inch V8 as its most powerful engine option.[46]

For 1967, the roofline of four-door sedans underwent a minor revision, adopting a more formal C-pillar profile; the reverse-slant Breezeway roof was discontinued (an optional retractable rear window remained available, using the standard roofline[47]). For a third time, the taillamps were redesigned, spanning from the top of the fender to the bottom of the bumper. Largely overshadowed by the smaller Cougar, the S-55 became an option package for full-size Mercury two-doors.[48]

For 1968, the front fascia underwent a minor restyle, again modeled after the Lincoln Continental; along with larger parking lamp lenses, the front fender vents were deleted. The 410 V8 was dropped, with a 280 hp version of the 390 introduced; the 428 was detuned to 340 hp.[49]

For 1969, the Mercury model line underwent a significant revision, with the Montclair repackaged as the Monterey Custom trim level. An all-new chassis made its debut; sedans were based on a 124-inch wheelbase, Monterey station wagons used a 121-inch wheelbase (alongside Ford station wagons and sedans).[50][51] Following the expansion of the Marquis to a full model range, the Monterey was the base-trim model range, offered as a two-door hardtop, two-door convertible, four-door sedan, four-door hardtop.[52] In another revision, Mercury station wagons were no longer a separate model range, with the Mercury Commuter renamed the Monterey station wagon.

More rounded in styling than the previous generation, the Monterey and Monterey Custom were distinguished from the Marquis by their lack of hidden headlights, differing from Fords in grille and taillamp styling. For 1970, the grille underwent a further revision and wider taillamps were introduced to better differentiate the Monterey from its Ford counterparts.

In 1971, the Mercury full-size model range underwent a exterior restyling. While retaining the roofline shared with Ford, the Monterey adopted design elements similar to the larger Lincoln Continental, included its wide-pointing grille and taillamps. In a major change, Ford and Mercury introduced "pillarless hardtops", using frameless door glass on both hardtops and four-door sedans; vent windows were discontinued. Redesigned door handles no longer protruded from the exterior; rear fender skirts were standardized on all full-size Mercury sedans except the base-trim Monterey. The Monterey and Marquis convertibles were discontinued for 1971, leaving the Cougar as the sole Mercury convertible.

For 1972, the Monterey underwent minor exterior revisions, replacing the full-width horizontal grille for an egg-crate style design. In line with federal regulations, front seatbelt warning buzzers were introduced. For the first time, an automatic transmission was standard, along with power steering and power brakes.[51]

For 1973, the full-size Mercury line underwent an exterior redesign, adapting to the introduction of federally mandated 5 mph bumpers.[51] Along with slightly more angular styling, the Monterey adapted much of the front fascia of the Ford Galaxie, distinguished largely by a centered eggcrate grille, with fender skirts becoming an option.[53] For 1974, the Monterey saw a revision to its grille and headlight trim.

For 1975, Mercury discontinued the Monterey, consolidating its full-size range down to the Marquis.[51] The same year, the Grand Marquis was introduced as a sub-model, becoming a distinct model range in 1983.

Approximately 7,850,000 full-size Fords and Mercurys were sold over 1969–78; this makes it the second best selling Ford automobile platform after the Ford Model T.[51][54][55]

The 351 Windsor and 400 cu in (6.6 L) Cleveland V8s were added for 1971, the final year for the 390. The 429V8, which was standard on the Marquis beginning in 1969, was available as an extra cost option on all Monterey models each year including a two-barrel 320-horsepower version and a four-barrel 360-horsepower option from 1969 to 1971. Both of those 429s were replaced by single 209 net horsepower 429 four-barrel for 1972, which was designed to run on regular, low lead or unleaded gasoline as was the case with all Ford Motor Company engines starting with the 1972 model year.[51] Engine offerings for 1973–74 included the 351 Windsor two-barrel standard on base Montereys and the 400 Cleveland two-barrel standard on Monterey Custom and optional on base models. The 429 V8 was discontinued after 1973 and Lincoln's 460 V8 became the top option on all models for 1974.

The Monterey in Canada[edit]

After 1963, the Monterey was not sold in Canada, but was supplanted by the resurrected Meteor. Meteor competed in the low-priced field, but its upper trim series (Montcalm and LeMoyne) were typically very similar to the U.S. Monterey both in styling and appointments. Meteor continued as a separate marque through 1976 (1975–76 models continued the 1974 Monterey's front end styling[51]) after which the name was applied to a base trim version of the Marquis, as the "Mercury Marquis Meteor" through 1981.

Mercury monterey 1976

He spreads his legs wider, almost lies on my face with his stomach and begins to squeeze his ass on my fingers deeper and faster. I know that in a couple of minutes he will finish, and I begin to caress his testicles, gently knead them and roll them, holding them in my palms. I want to cum with him and turn on the vibrator at full speed, squeezing my legs.

Mercury Monterey 1966

Let's try, I want it to be you He understood what I was talking about, he knew that I was a virgin. And that I didn't have a boyfriend, and for that he respected me even more. oh so that I'm scary, since in all 16 I didn't have a boyfriend, I'm just principled, and only those who are hooked.

Choking snot and tears Anna was already crying, - bitch, damn old goat, what are you doing to me !!!!. Benjamin squeezed his appendix with two fingers and stroked it furiously, literally crying out loud. How he finished, I never noticed, I was too absorbed in the process of full-blooded, adult fucking.

I saw that the fucker's balls had already pulled up to the very root. He was getting ready to finish.
