45 mins ago  •  For Sale  •  The 1958 model year was not a good one for the automobile industry. The U.S. was amid an economic recession that would put a big dent in car sales. Mercury suffered more than most, seeing a decline of 53%, due in part to the new Edsel stealing some of their thunder. One of the autos built that year was this 1958 Mercury Monterey 2-door hardtop with a continental kit. Said to be an original car with less than 20,000 miles, but it looks like it was built yesterday. Located in Torrance, California, this cream puff is being offered by a dealer here on eBay where bidding has reached $28,125.
