The details shown in the photo gallery should attest to the time and money invested in this labor of love. The chain of stories passed from owner to owner says the restoration on this 1940 Mercury Eight finished up sometime in 2012 and has seen a little over 2,000 miles since being completed. The write up and paperwork passed along indicated a professional rebuild on the flathead from top to bottom including a '3/4 race camshaft,' Mallory dual-point ignition, modern style ball-bearing water pump, and ceramic coated headers exiting through dual exhausts. The sound is superb! The high-quality paint job is about a decade old and one would not believe it upon close inspection.There are no major flaws noticed. The custom upholstery is top flight and was very tastefully done. There is no heater or AC, but there is an AM/FM radio with speakers under the seats. The window seals and weatherstripping were all replaced as part of the restoration. The frame has been galvanized and the underside of the vehicle is incredibly clean and well-kept. There is little to no work to be done here - simply purchase and enjoy the hobby! This 1940 Mercury Eight is offered by the St. Louis sales staff and can be seen in full detail on our website. Our listing all include 100+ HD photos and a detailed video! Video:
