1969 Mercury Montego.jpg

Mercury Montego. 1968–9 (prod. 179,858). 4-door sedan, 2-door coupé, 5-door wagon, 2-door convertible. F/R, 200, 250 in³ (I6 OHV), 302, 351, 390, 428 in³ (V8 OHV). Upscale version of Ford Fairlane (1968–9), with the Montego nameplate gradually taking over from earlier Comet (Capri and Caliente supplanted by Montego and Montego MX). The same remarks as Fairlane apply: an intermediate styled to look like a full-sized car, with questionable handling to match.
