Another four-door sedan from the Sixties — this one’s a 1966 Mercury Monterey Breezeway, so called because that rear-slanted back window slid sown to provide ventilation. A good idea comfort-wise, but the rear slant was necessary to keep rain out, and pretty much dictated the shape of the roofline. A regular-roofed four-door was also available without the opening window. The Breezeway was available from Mercury for model years 1963-66. In ’67 the optional rear window of the regular shaped roof opened just a couple of inches, but even that idea was phased-out after the 1968 model year. Found this example in North Tonawanda.
