59 METEOR    

A WikiMoment

Meteor was a brand of automobiles offered for sale by Ford in Canada from the 1949 to the 1976 model years. The name was retired for the 1962 and 1963 model years, when the mid-size Mercury Meteor was available. It succeeded the Mercury 114, a Canadian-market Mercury based on the Ford - thus the "114" for the wheelbase.

The word 'Meteor' usually appeared on the bonnet and was considered a marque, rather than a model, in Canada. It complemented Mercury and gave Canadian Mercury-Lincoln dealers a car to sell in the low-price market, against Ford, Chevrolet, and Plymouth. Similarly, Canadian Ford dealers had the Monarch, a car based on the Mercury. The Meteor generally ran 4th in overall sales, behind Chevrolet, Pontiac and Ford.
