For Sale: 1955 Mercury Monterey in Bend, Oregon

Vehicle Description

This beautiful 1955 Mercury Monterey 2dr Hardtop comes from the late Bob Wehe Collection/Estate.  This 1955 is a classic example of what the 50's were all about. The pillarless design gave the appearance of a convertible with all the advantages of a fixed roof.  The white body and hard top gives the classic 50's look and the chrome trim absolutely  screams Americana.  Add to this the Coker wide white wall tires with the two rears being concealed by a set of fender skirts finishing off the period correct exterior. Pop the hood and you will find a very detailed engine compartment with a 292 V8 with a chrome breather and painted valve covers.  Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, the mechanical side of this Mercury Monterey is in great condition.  With a turn of the key the V8 comes to life and settles down to a smooth idle in no time.  Backed up by the classic Cruise-O-Matic transmission driving this beauty is pure pleasure and shifts through all 3 gears without a hitch.  In drive the car will actually start out in 2nd gear.  If low gear is needed, stop, put the shift selector in L, and then resume driving.  Low gear should only be used at low speeds.  Open the door and the front bench seat is very inviting with the vinyl matching the exterior as well.  The huge steering wheel looks great and is sure to remind you of when and where this car came from.  Options the this 1955 Mercury include Continental kit, spare tire, trunk mat, fender shirts, dual mounted rear view mirrors, factory am radio, power steering, power brakes, vinyl interior, wide white wall tires and hub caps.  This Mercury Monterey has been in a collection for years and is now available.
