Where can I find a wiring diagram for a 1956 Mercury Monterey?

Dear Tom and Ray:

I am looking for a print of a wiring diagram for a 1956 Mercury Monterey. I
am mostly interested in the gas- and oil-gauge section. -- Michel

TOM: Do you want a framed print? And does it have to be original and signed
by the artist?

RAY: Your best bet, Michel, is to pick up a copy of Hemmings Motor News
(published in Bennington, Vt.). All kinds of wackos with old cars run ads
for everything under the sun in there.

TOM: And if you don't see an ad for a '56 Monterey shop manual, you can
always run an ad and ask for one. I'm sure some former Monterey owner has
been saving one in his basement for years ... just hoping he'd be able to
gouge some desperate guy like you someday. Good luck, Michel.
