I drove this 1948 Mercury convertible to high school in 1958. It had a souped-up flathead then. It has been in my possession for 60 years - always garaged at my parents house. It was upgraded in 1982 with a 350 Chevy engine, automatic transmission and drive train, 4-wheel disc brakes, 1974 Chevy Nova front-end suspension, power steering and more. Runs excellent with plenty of pep. Fun to drive. Tan Naugahyde interior. Car always gets plenty of compliments.
