Mercury Turnpike Cruiser

First offered in 1957, the Turnpike Cruiser series was the top of the line in the Mercury division and are best known for the unique styling cues and wide array of gadgets that included a power rear window that could be lowered to improve ventilation, and "twin jet" air intakes at upper corners of the windshield, and marked by a gold anodized trim strip on the rear fin, and all Turnpike Convertibles included a continental tire kit painted yellow (Sun Glitter) similar to the original pace cars. In 1958 as the second and last year of production the Turnpike Cruiser joined the mid-range Mercury Montclair line with only minor trim changes.
