YAK Car Pic of the D-eh!

Having spent most of Saturday in Canada, it seemed only fitting to feature a Canadian pic today. You may remember a short time ago we featured the 1960 Edsel, which was really only a mildly-changed 1960 Ford. Well, Ford got even more mileage out of that body style in the Great White North, where this 1960 Meteor Montcalm was sold in Lincoln-Mercury dealers. It gave the L-M dealers a less expensive car to sell against the Canadian Pontiacs (Ford dealers also had a restyled Mercury, called the Monarch, which competed in Canada against the Oldsmobile — very confusing).

    That is very confusing, particularly if you were an unfortunate soul trying to buy some replacement body or trim parts. Probably didn’t happen much as these cars weren’t strong machines and likely prematurely succombed to Canada’s climatic extremes.
