Mercury restyled their lineup in 1955 with longer and lower bodies. The Montclair was offered to customers in four body styles including the sole convertible offered by Mercury. This re-styling earned Mercury with Motor Trend's 'Car of the Year' award in 1955 which it shared with Chevrolet.

The Montclair was an attractive vehicle with chrome trim, bright rocker trim panels, and a round medallion placed near the tip of the front fenders. The model name was placed in chrome script above the mid-body spear. The V8 engien had been enlarged to 292 cubic-inches and offered nearly 200 hosrepower with a standard dual exhaust system. There were around 11,000 buyers to purchased the Montclair Convertible in 1955.

This example is painted in red with a red and white interior. It is equipped with power steering, power brakes, an AM radio and a clock. There are dual chrome-plated exhaust tips, red painted steel wheels with full wheel covers and whitewall tires. The odometer reads just over 42,000 miles.
