Lot #1024.1 - The Sun Valley, with the Plexiglas roof, was new for 1954, as was the overhead V8. These Sun Valley Mercurys were very low production (9,761) due to their very high selling price. This Sun Valley was owned for 22 years by a regional president of the Early Ford V8 Club. It has every factory option that was available for Mercury in 1954, including power steering, power brakes, automatic transmission, power windows, power seat, radio, heater, backup lights, fender skirts, tinted windshield and Continental kit. Automatic transmission. From the Charlie Thomas Collection.
