This 1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser is an ultra-rare 'M-335 Power Package.' It is powered by a dual quad, 368 cubic-inch engine delivering 335 horsepower and was available only by special order. All M-335-equipped cars were prepared in Bill Stroppe's legendary speed shop as part of a factory initiative to make Mercury more competitive in the NASCAR race series. It is believed that this is the only example equipped with an automatic transmission, and is believed to have been Mr. Stroppe's personal vehicle.

This vehicle is finished in Fiesta Red and Tuxedo Black and is equipped with nearly every factory option available, including air conditioning, power memory 'Seat-O-Matic,' pushbutton chassis lubrication, 'Cruiser' rear skirts, and a continental kit spare tire.

The 1957 Turnpike Cruiser was inspired by a 1956 auto-show car of the same name. It was designed to be the perfect vehicle for cruising the Interstate highways of the future.

Details included an electrically retractable 'Breezeway' rear window and Merc-O-Matic transmission with 'Keyboard Controls' on the 'Monitor Control Panel' (dashboard).
