1967 Mercury S-55 hardtop coupe

A continuation of the S-55 package under the Monterey label, the 1967 Mercury Monterey S-55 was phased out almost as soon as the model year began, probably because big performance cars were deemed inappropriate for a make with luxury aspirations. Styling was of the new rounded "Coke-bottle" school adopted this year, and somewhat less distinctive than before, though more and more like a Lincoln. Mechanical details were as for the '66 S-55.
