1963 Mercury Monterey Breezeway
Learning from the Continental, Mercury offered something new to the customers hoping to raise its sales. In 1963, it introduced an innovative and exciting Breezeway option on its top model. This was a reverse C pillar design with a concave profile of the car and tilted rear glass, which was retractable. It was an innovative solution that resulted in more space in the interior and an excellent-looking design.
Mercury kept the Breezeway option for selected models up to the 1968 model year. Despite being not all that popular or influential, the Breezeway is still one of the coolest luxury US sedans of the ’60s (via Motor City Garage).
