For Sale: 1954 Mercury Monterey in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1954 Mercury Monterey was thoroughly restored to be very vintage and very impressive. So look over the details of the sleek red paint, cool hardtop profile, a cruiser-two-tone interior, V8 power, and an undercarriage that looks smoother/cleaner than many other car's bodies!

Red paint may have a timeless appeal, but there's an even deeper attraction when this upgrade is a professional application. It makes for a deep and glossy finish that loves to let sunlight roll smoothly over the body. The brightwork is a well-done premium package. It starts up front with a detailed style that includes double wraparound bumpers, dual pointed bullets, and a grille that would be popular with the lead sled crowd. And the rear has a wraparound bumper that likes to frame the formal Lincoln-like taillights. This coupe was in the collection of a Mercury enthusiast and collector. So as you look over the whole car, you're going to see some added time and care, right down to the details. So the full-length bright trim still incorporates crisply presented special Monterey crests. And fender skirts, bright Mercury logo hubcaps, and wide whitewall tires really make this a true rolling tribute to the best of the 1950s.

Inside, there's more red. Now it's joined with white for a two-tone appearance that has the same all-American appeal as a Coca-Cola bottle. The full package gives you the right updated pieces without ever taking away from the vintage feeling. For example, the seats have a classic style, but it feels far fresher than anything from the 1950s. And everything from the clean carpeting to the smooth dash has a quality look and feel. It's really a detail-oriented package, right down to the working dome light. Plus, there are crisp, clean gauges behind the wide grippy steering wheel. So you can tell they took the time to get it right on this Mercury, and when you roll down all the windows on this hardtop, you can easily share this style with the world.

Under the hood is something special. 1954 was the debut of Ford's new V8 - the Y-block that would make cars like the Thunderbird famous. Plus, for added distinction, this 256 cubic-inch displacement was only available in a Mercury and only in 1954. The tidy engine bay is nicely detailed with a minty green on the block, big air grabber, and matching Mercury branded valve covers. So this motor is not only a great one to showcase, but it's a great powerhouse for driving. When you do take it out on the road, the three-speed manual transmission gives you good control over the motor, and there's even overdrive. And the ultra-clean undercarriage reminds you there are fresher components for a more confident driver feeling.

This is the distinctive car that loves to show off a very vintage and very premium presentation. So if you love an upper-class true classic, call today!
