1967 Meteors

1967 Meteors carried on with minor changes shared with those at Mercury, which included moving the turn signals to the bumper and adding a raised portion of the hood that projected out into the grille. Montego was a new range topping model in the Meteor lineup.

1968 Meteor

1968 Meteors again received reworked sheet metal, with a heavier Lincoln influence. The Montego name migrated south, for use on Mercurys: LeMoyne replaced it as the most luxurious Meteor, pictured above. Where the Mercury grille for 1968 consisted of fine horizontal lines, the Meteor’s was divided into rectangles — similar in look to the 1969 Mercury Comet.

New, longer full-size Mercurys debuted in 1969. The ‘69 Meteors, again, shared the bulk of their looks with the Monterey (the Marquis — an upscale full size Mercury that debuted in 1965 — now had its own dedicated body style with covered headlights).
