1958 MERCURY COMMUTER STATION WAGON -- SLIGHTLY CUSTOMIZED
UPDATE: This Merc was returned to this dealership and is for sale. I was
very fortunate to capture this beauty with my camera for 20 minutes later
an antique car transporter picked this up to deliver to it's new owner.
What a find! Beautiful metallic paint, wide white walls on tasteful
wheels, reconditioned interior all add up to make this a stunning custom.
1958 was the second year of Mercury's space age design with sheet metal
sculpture all around. There are 3 station wagon offerings and include the
Commuter, Voyager and Colony Park. All wagons were either 2 or 4 door, 6
passenger or 9 passenger. The engines provided for wagons were all V8's
ranging from 383 cid / 312 - 330 bhp., or a 430 cid / 360 - 400 horses.
Mercury still have matching front and back massive bumpers and that space
gun looking design running along the rear side culminating into the famous
wedge-shaped taillight. Push button controls are still used for
transmission gear selection. There were 8,601 of these 4-door 6 passenger
wagons made under the Commuter name this year. The more I see these 57-58
Mercury's the more I'm in appreciation of them as a prime example of
fifties excess but also sculpted metal works of art. Thanks very much for
viewing this 1958 Mercury Commuter station wagon.
