Wheels in the grass

1967 Mercury Monterey

1967 Mercury Monterey

On my way to Olean I spotted this 1967 Mercury Monterey sedan parked in the grass on Rt. 16 just south of Machias. A pretty rare find these days. Come to think of it, I don’t remember seeing that many on the road back in 1967, either. Fords, Chevys, Plymouths — they were everywhere. Ford produced 15,177 Monterey four-door sedans for the 1967 model year. Compare that to 130,063 Ford Galaxie 500 four-door sedans made the same year and you can see why you hardly see a ’67 Merc in this rust-prone part of the country some 40 years later. This one, if you’re interested, has a for sale sign on the window.

    Jim: enjoy your work. If there’s no one to capture these forgotten treasures, they disappear from memory. You’re helping to prevent that.
