1957 Mercury Monterey two door POST that is completely stock
original and there is ABSOLUTELY NO RUST ANYWHERE ON THE ENTIRE
VEHICLE. I am the documented second owner of this car, which I
bought over 10 years ago as a basket case. It had been sitting for
a lot of years. It has all four 14 inch tires new, the brake
linings replaced with new wheel cylinders and lines. The brakes are
all bled and tested and everything works as it should. The
transmission was rebuilt. I Installed the transmission myself and
painted every piece of metal and cowling I had off at the time. I
undercoated every square inch of the underbody. The push button
shifter was missing some pieces, had them shipped in. Took it apart
and used the parts to rebuild and make the original shifter
operable. The spare shifter is in the trunk of the car for future
use or parts. The engine is a Mercury 322 V-8 with a freshly
rebuilt Holley four barrel carburetor and dual exhaust. The car has
power steering and power brakes. The AM radio still works and
sounds great. I installed new carpet bought from an Internet
source. The engine has a fresh oil change and tune up so it really
purrrrrrs. I bought and installed a brand new water pump I found on
the Internet. I took this car to one car show last year at
Rockabillies and a lot of people went nuts over this car. It is SO
CLEAN AND COMPLETELY ORIGINAL. The upholstery is still very nice
and original. This car runs and drives very well, especially for a
car that is almost 60 years old.
