Crowd of people gathers around a display featuring a Mercury hardtop coupe. Dramatic restyling gave Mercury models a gaudy look this year. Topping the line was the new Turnpike Cruiser, featuring a retractable, reverse-slanted back window and a "skylight dual curve windshield."
Female performers were part of the "Through Lincoln Park" musical skit to introduce the 1963 Mercury Monterey during the "Motorevue of 1963" stage presentation. Monterey was a full-size Mercury model, highlighted by the unique back-slanted rear window.
