    Hi Bill,

    some Montclair door panels have vinyl in the lower third just like the one on your picture, others have a ribbed stainless panel on the bottom. Is this a production change? An option? Depending on body style? Thanks, Nils

      Hi Nils, Very good question! I have to admit I’d never noticed before and have never even heard it discussed. If I had to guess I would say I know Mercury embarked on a number of mid-year changes in 1956 – introduction of the 4-Door Phaeton hardtops, discontinuance of the 4-Door Sedan, a new Custom Convertible, some new engine refinements, and so on. Montclair interior updates likely happened then.
      Best Regards, Bill
