Hey everyone...If anyone out there knows where I guy can find some body and interior parts for a 1965 Mercury Meteor Montcalm that would be help full. I do live in Alberta Canada so any help in that area is a great help but if there are some good reliable sourses else where I won't say no. As well if there are any websites that somebody knows of it would be appreceited greatly. The car is supporting the 352 with a 2bb carb.

I "think" that it should have the same body as the american Marquies, Monterey, Parklane, maurauder of the same year... Just differnt name & trim on the canadian version.

I searched all over the internet to find the little bit of info on my 67 Monterey... Best bet would be to do a search on those other mercury models to find pics and see if the body's look the same. Check Ebay, Collector Car Traderonline, etc to find pics to refrence.

Check out: http://www.allamericanclassics.com
Looks like they have several full size 65 mercs in their yard...

Good luck with it! Any pics to share?

Other than the badges on the dash & steering wheel, the interior trim is identical to the same year Galaxie 500. Same seat trim & door panels, everything. The 352 2 barrel was a Canada only engine from 63-65, that's why it dfoesn't show up in US sourced books. Interesting thing, from '63 to '65 the 352-2V was the first step up from the 6. This also applies to Galaxies. There were no 289 full sized cars in Canada until '66

so the interior is all good what about bodies. I was looking at some of the other suggestions and nothing looks close enough. Is the Galaxy same body style aswell.

1965 Mercury sheetmetal. Meteor has different grill and trim, Merc has lower red tail ligh lenses, Meteor has silver colored blanks.
Doors from a 66 Meteor or Merc will fit, as will the trunk lid, but the front clips are different

Fluffy are you still looking for 1965 Meteor body parts?
I am looking for some montcalm interior door handles as well as some direction on converting it to something with disc brakes and fuel injection. I'm told the crown vic works? I understand it was only canadian made and parts are rare from what i read the ford fairlane and galaxy are similar. I need a new gas tank. and I can not find the name of the paint any where it is paint code 599. I bought my grandpa's station wagon and would like to get it road worthy soon as Grandpa is 90 this year.

Thanks S
