Longer and Lower, with a Hug-the-Road Look
For 1970, Mercury Montego offers the intermediate-car buyer 12 models,
including a new 4-door hardtop, and three performance-oriented 2-door
hardtops: the Cyclone, the Cyclone GT, and the Cyclone Spoiler.
In addition to a dramatic new front-end appearance, new side ornamentation, and
unique rear-end design, the 1970 Montego has concealed windshield
wipers, and standard concealed headlamps on the MX Brougham, Cyclone GT,
and the Cyclone Spoiler. Interiors are distinguished by all-new trim styles,
redesigned instrument clusters centered by horizontal speedometers.
and new oval-design steering wheels. A new 117-wheelbase and wider front
and rear track add to the Montego's stability and maneuverability.
Newest Montego model is the smartly appointed Brougham 4-door hardtop.
Concealed headlamps, luxurious cloth and vinyl or all-vinyl interiors, deep-loop
nylon carpeting and teakwood styled vinyl instrument panel establish the
Brougham as a leader in its field.
The Brougham, which can be ordered with engines ranging from the
economical 250-cubic inch six cylinder engine all the way up to the 429 4V,
includes, among its four models, a Villager station wagon with exclusive
yacht-deck paneling and two-way tailgate.
The high-performance Cyclone, Cyclone GT, and Cyclone Spoiler give
Lincoln-Mercury three new youth-oriented models. Cyclone's exclusive styling
is marked by a jewel-like grille, flanked by sporty running lights; racy hood
scoop; high-back seats, and dual racing mirrors.
