Beautiful, rare, and subtle modern upgrades make this an outstanding total package. So while everyone will marvel at the meticulous restoration of this hardtop-style 1958 Mercury Commuter wagon, youll be basking in the A/C / brbr You could consider yourself lucky if you got your hands on one of Mercurys wagons in the late 50s. They were part of the premium brotherhood that offered a cool hardtop station wagons for only a few short years. Because wagons were expensive, these were quite rare. Mercury only produced 8,601 Commuter six-passenger wagons in 58, and when you think about how many were worn-out pulling family duty, this one is a prized example sixty years later. Of course it took a lot of investment to look this good. It received a nut and bolt rotisserie restoration in 2010 that cost over $100,000. They painted it a 1958-correct Twilight Turquoise, and the level of gloss and luster of the modern clear coat outshines anything from the 1950s. Plus, the Marble White highlights the best features of this chic wagon as it creates a terrific two-tone. But more than just the color, this is an amazing total package. Up front theres the large mirror-like dual grilles with a golden Mercury M in the center. The profile utilizes intricate trim to make the turquoise and white look like an ocean wave cresting on the rear doors. And it all ends in unique V-shaped tail fins. With all these amazing details you might also not pick up on the upgrades like the like the torque thrust II-style wheels on iconic whitewalls. Only at night will you experience the difference the upgraded headlight and taillight package / brbr Because the hardtop makes sneaking a peek at the interior much easier, youll love how the turquoise and white theme is continued inside. The handsome interior looks like it has had a serious investment in keeping it looking period-correct. The seats have an intricate pattern on both rows, and with less than 1,300 miles on this wagon since completing restoration, it still looks fantastic today. We love how the door panels, dash, headliner, and carpeting are all part of a well-coordinated package. Sit in the drivers seat, and you are treated to a bright styling masterpiece. These Mercurys were quite unique with the oblong steering wheel and push-button transmission. While this one looks period-correct, right down to window cranks, there are a few subtle upgrades youre going to love. For example, the correct AM radio is still on display, but your real tunes come from a modern AM/FM/CD stereo hidden in the glovebox. This one has power windows to help you showcase the hardtop profile, youre going to love the modern R134a air conditioning to keep as cool as you look behind the / brbr So much invested in the restoration, there was plenty in the budget to focus on the engine bay, too. The V8 is a correct-spec 383 cubic-inch unit. Its presentation is quite nice with the mirror-like air topper, shining silver presentation, and the M logo valve covers that are perfect 50s cool. In fact, they were so mindful about the restoration/rebuild of this motor that it even has the correct Holley four-barrel carburetor on top. The undercharge photos tells you nothing was overlooked when they worked on this wagon. With this kind of investment in the build and proper maintenance ever since, the powerful V8 fires up nicely and idles like a smooth Mercury should. The same effortlessness can describe the ride and its overall demeanor on the road thanks to feature like the three-speed automatic transmission and power steering. Just to make sure this Commuter is truly a great cruising machine, it has the superior stopping power of front disc / brbr The sale comes complete with the build receipts, owners manual, and service manuals. This is the rare wagon that has been restored to comfortably drive to all the car shows, and even win you awards when you get there. Its a total package classic that leaves you wanting for nothing.
