About the Ford Torino, Mercury and Montego
The Ford Motor Company introduced the Torino in 1968 and continued to
produce the model until 1976. The goal was for the Torino to replace the
Fairlane name, which the Torino did around 1971. As a sports sedan, the
Ford Torino was larger than the Fairlane. It was available in multiple
styles, too, including a two- or four-door hardtop and a two-door
The Mercury predates the Torino, as Ford designers began to work on it in
the 1930s. The Mercury officially launched in 1938 as "premium range"
models. The first model was the 1939 Mercury 8, and it was available in a
two- and four-door sedan, a sports convertible and a town sedan.
Finally, Ford introduced the first generation of the Mercury Montego in
1968 and continued to produce the car until 1977. Produced under Mercury,
the first generation of the Montego nameplate was offered as a four-door
sedan, four-door station wagon, two-door convertible and more.
