For Sale: 1961 Mercury Meteor in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this sleek 1961 Mercury Meteor 800. The Mercury Meteor was produced from 1961 to 1963. For 1961, the name was applied to low-end full-sized vehicles; for 1962 and 1963, the name was applied to Mercury's mid-sized sedans, in a marketing attempt to appeal to the excitement surrounding the Space Race, before being discontinued. Introduced while Mercury as a marque was in flux, and never a solid marketplace performer in consumer sales, the Meteor remains more a side note than a well-known Mercury product which makes this car super rare. The rarity was kept with this car having its numbers matching all original drivetrain. The 231 6-cylinder engine only has 64k miles and is mated to its original automatic transmission. The brown paint is in great condition and all of the chrome shines like it would have when it was cruising down the street in the 60's. The matching colored cloth interior shows minimal signs of wear and tear. This car is a show quality car that you can enjoy driving. Options on this car include AM Radio, Cloth interior, white wall tires, and even chrome trim. If you are looking for a collectors piece, this is the car for you.
