Old Cars Reader Wheels: 1956 Mercury Meteor

Old Cars spotlights a reader submitted 1956 Mercury Meteor

Phil van Leeuwen sent us a pic of his '56 Meteor in the wild. He added...

Here's a shot of my '56 Meteor at our club's last car show of the year. She is originally from Vancouver, BC and came to me via California and Reno, Nevada. She has a 292 Y-block engine overbored to approximately 300 cu. in. with a '57 Ford 312 intake manifold and a Holley 4150 carb and Mercomatic drive. She runs with the best of them.

She was featured in your great publication several years ago (September 15, 2016 issue) which was so very much appreciated.
