For Sale: 1954 Mercury Monterey in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Plenty of custom attitude on the outside, a loaded A/C interior, and a cool V8 upgrade under the hood all come together on this 1954 Mercury Monterey. So look over the details of a bold custom that loves to cruise.


The copper paint has plenty of metallic to really make sure this custom radiates in the sunshine, and the white gives you the right dignified classic look you want in a Mercury coupe. The overall impression is a car that's easy to drive and also loves to look like a full custom from every angle. The color-matched bumper, frenched headlights, and deleted badges give this a sleeker more modern face. It looks more aggressive with no trim blocking the hood scoop. Much of the superfluous trim was eliminated - even the door handles. So you can now really appreciate the artful line that Mercury gave to the side trim. You also now take more note of the brightwork showing off the hardtop profile. And the rear looks terrific where eliminating the trim and painting the bumper gives you a smoother style. And it lets you appreciate details like the way the taillights let the sheet metal's accent lines wrap around the rear. Clear headlights, large dual exhaust tips, and distinctly dark American Racing Torq Thrust wheels finish off an impressive total package.


The color theme flips for the interior where white dominates, and copper is used for distinctive touches on the armrests and headliner. Tuck and roll style seating, matching door panels, a smooth dash, and nice carpeting have a nice quality impression. Even the trunk was done to match. There are well-integrated upgrades like cold-blowing air conditioning, seat belts, and an AM/FM/CD stereo. And power windows mean you can show off the full pillarless hardtop profile without ever leaving the driver's seat. And just to remind you this is built to be a driver, you get a large speedo, tach, and full Stewart Warner auxiliary readouts.


The engine bay is quite interesting. Smooth black inner walls and copper-colored brake booster give it a custom feel. The motor has some polish but looks a bit more honest than the rest of the package. That may be done purposely so that you can talk about classic hot rod V8s. This is a Cadillac OHV upgrade, and that's exactly what you wanted back in the day. In fact, they used the large 472 cubic-inch unit with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor on top. It's a healthy power upgrade that has a subtly sweet exhaust note. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission power brakes, front discs, and rack & pinion power steering deliver on the cruiser-ready style.


This is a custom Mercury that's built to be a cool and comfortable driver. So if you love enjoying your classic out on the road, you need to be there with this coupe. Call today!!!
