It is being offered for sale now only because of his advanced age.  Please let all the pictures load (there are over 120) to see the beautiful condition of this classic Mercury. This is one of the few cars that actually looks better in person than in the photos! The odometer shows 59,706 miles and is believed to be correct, but the car is being sold as exempt because of the age.  We do have a clear title showing actual mileage of 59,552 in 2002. Our knowledge of what has been done to this car is very limited, but this is what we do know.  It is a combination of unmolested original, with some cosmetic and mechanical improvements over the years. The front and rear have been nosed and decked and it has shaved door handles with push button release entry for the doors and trunk. The engine has been upgraded with adjustable lifters and ground valves. The car was repainted a beautiful pearl white in 2000, the bumpers were re-chromed, the rest of the trim appears to be original and in great shape.  The interior has been restored with custom seat covers, door panels and headliner. The undercarriage is mostly original and is extremely solid and clean. The lake pipes and spots are dummies and not operable. The tires are modern Firestone radials P-235/75-15 front and rear. The gauges, horn, lights, signals, windows and overdrive are fully operational and the car rides, handles and looks terrific. The glove box was signed by George Barris a few years ago at the Midwest Regional Street Rod Show in Crown Point Indiana. As of 9/4/2014 additional work has been done on the car as follows.  Chrome trim added to the side, new headliner installed and the trunk has been completely redone with custom fabric. Please remember that this car is 63 years old and not perfect.  The clock is inoperable and the radio and wipers turn on but are weak.   THE CAR IS LOCATED IN GRIFFITH, INDIANA 46319
