Here is an old school 1951 Mercury Sedan that has everything you could want in a classic mild custom. (See ad on Cars-On-Line.com today.) Kurt from Cruisin Classics has put together a video for you to watch on this Merc with suicide doors. Click here to view. He points out the characteristic sound of the 255 ci Merc Flathead engine. Kurt says the driver quality paint looks good enough to take it to shows. Yet there is some rot visible at the bottom of the side panels. Other exterior highlights include the all so famous grille, Mercury badging, fender skirts and Spinners. See dozens of high quality photos on the ad page. We hope we get a chance to inspect it for you. This one will be our DEAL of the DAY on Sunday. The price is $16,995.
Here is what Cruisin Classics had to say:
The Maroon classic has a 255ci flathead V8 that has plenty of power. It is matched with a Manual “three-on-the-tree”, speed transmission. The driver quality paint looks good enough for the show and a nice long cruise. Other exterior highlights include the all so famous grill, the Mercury badging, fender skirts, big ole’ trunk, spinner wheels, vents on all 4 windows and the cool as ever suicide doors. Interior is gray in color and in good condition. Seats are in great shape and have plenty of cushion. The dash is in excellent condition with little signs of wear unlike most ’51’s of anything. Overall this car is a pleasure to drive. It starts right up and is ready to go in seconds. The steering wheel has a Brodie knob that helps make the drive feel like the 50’s. Please look at the pictures in detail. It is in great shape but not perfect shape. We are aware of the cars condition and have priced it accordingly.
What are they referring to? Look closely at the photos of the undercarriage. Notice the rust out at the bottom of the sheet metal panels. To an experienced restorer this might not seem like too much of a project. But this car will not be right for everyone.
