I just acquired a nice 1958 Montclair convertible with the 430 engine. I have found 2 others listed, Ted Forbes in Canada and the Malburgers. Is anyone aware of any other 58 Montclair convertibles still running?
There are a bunch of them in IMOA. Use the contact box to access the member directory and click on ’58 model year. There were at least 6 there. Don’t know if they are running or not but there is contact info for the owners. They are not all Montclairs, but a couple of Parklanes and a Monterey or two.
I looked up the member cars listed. That is where I got the Malburgers. I saw the Parklanes and the Montereys and I know of a Parklane for sale in Europe (wants $65,000 for a car that will need a complete restoration). I’m specfically interested in knowing of any more Montclair convertibles.
Two updates: I got a little suspicious of the 360HP valve cover decal when I found the car had a Mercomatic rather than Multi-Drive Mercomatic and, sure enough, the VIN confirms that the engine is a 383ci, not the 430ci. Also found another 58 Monclair convertible in Jim Rogers (Las Vegas) collection. That makes 4 known survivors unless someone else comes up with more.
