Rare Canadian for sale – 1960 Frontenac

I can’t recall the last time I saw any sort of Frontenac for sale. They are a rare, one year only Canadian car. Obviously based on the Ford Falcon of the same year but with unique trim utilizing the Canadian Maple Leaf. This example looks complete and retains the likely impossible to replace trim. Falcon mechanicals mean it could be a straight forward restoration for the right owner.

Rare 1960 Mercury Frontenac Only built 1 year
Since the pic taken i have cleaned it some, put used tires on, and is close to running.
Will post new pic after it warms up.

$1000.

Its actually not a Mercury, Frontenac was its own short lived marque.

I’ve only ever seen a handful of Frontenac including a nice, black one at History Road at Reynolds Alberta Museum – this photo shows the unique grill and trim.

Interestingly there was another, older Frontenac – a Canadian relative of Durant. This example is a 1932.
