    Just bought a 1963 Mercury Monterey 4 door Breezeway. It's been about 4 years since my last car, and with a family now I'm excited to get them into hot rods and make it a family thing. The Merc is my first FoMoCo car so I'm learning a lot of cool info from people on the 390 and the car. Hope I can meet up with some other Monterey guys on here to learn a few things from. Thanks!

    love the 1960 invicta and the 63 impala in the back ground too. how was the intetior in it? did the original headliner survive? i love the little m's embossed on it.

    Nice to see another Monterey on the board! I sure am envious of the rear window feature, but I would never trade it for my '62! ;)

    Thanks everybody, the headliner unfortunately has a year above the passengers head but other than that it's clean. The interior is original other than the front seat which was re upholstered in the 90s it looks like. Dash is pretty clean too.

    Yeah, I was thinking I might try that, rather make a few stitches than install a new one!

    there are a few disk brake convertions. one of them is the Granada conversion. , seems like not many people like it. but its available and ill have to search my saved links to send them to you. the brake booster with dual resivor most people are using is the s10 set up. and i believe i do have an extra cig lighter. plus the side alum trim for the front seat (back rest area) just the sides not the lower

    Funny, the first thing I did to mine was raise the rear. It had 3" blocks and 14 inch tires. Second thing was 15x8 wheels and tires.

    Nice! Cool lookin Merc. I was wondering what the dash looks like under the pad? I like painted steel dashes and wanted to know what's under there.

    Its the same ass our dash. Just peel the foam and sand it. And the speaker insert needs adjustment i think.

    Sorry I missed this thread until now. Cool 4dr! These old Mercs sure do have a lot of room inside! If you're curious about the metal dash - check out my thread - mine has a metal dash. One of these days my schedule is going to clear up and I'm going to be able to get the transmission back in.

    Interesting you had a three-on-the-tree. When you said 3sp I thought Auto 3sp.

    Great looking ride, gotta love the breezeway!

    I recently purchased a '64 Monterey sedan, absolutely dig it.

    Thanks! Yeah, it's fun to bang through the gears every once in a while. And I swear the cab is as spacious as my crew cab Dodge! Ill probably do the dash to match the roof then. I asked the wife what color and she said purple... Dark purple metal flake lace it is!
