 Vehicle Description
Restored and regal, this 1951 Mercury Eight Convertible is long, loaded, and legendary. So if youre looking for a rare and classy cruiser, read on..br / brbr This was the final year for the legendary Mercury Eight series. These really had a terrific look to them with the grille and the bumper are part of an integral design. And you see the same in the rear where the ends of the bumpers expand to merge with the hint of tailfin. Even the brightwork details are great, like the large hood ornament, dual spotlights, and sweeping side trim. We especially love the wheels. Not only do you get classic whitewalls, but also the factory wheel covers with the Mercury logo center. You see all of this so vividly because the yellow is a terrific 50s color that also provides the perfect canvas to showcase all these details. You can really tell this was a restoration of love. But more than just a great total presentation, these are rare. As an expensive premium droptop, Mercury produced less than 6,800 examples in 1951. How many do you think survived to look this good 65+ years later?br / brbr The tan interior has a clean and comfy look. Also, like any good American cruiser, theres plenty of room to share the experience with family and friends. It has a terrific time capsule like presentation with the bright dash that nicely integrates all the gauges. Even the original AM radio is still on display. Plus, as a premium Mercury, you get some great premium features (after all, how many 50s classic do you see with a power seat?) We bet your favorite two luxuries will be the power windows and power convertible top. Together, they mean never having to leave the drivers seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience. br / brbr Under the hood is exactly what you want to see: flathead V8 power. Mercuries were popular, because these had extra displacement and extra torque over what was available at Ford during the time. And this legendary powerhouse looks authentic, right down to the oil bath air cleaner and bright blue block. The way this idles reaffirms its good care, and the sound out of the upgraded dual exhaust is pure flathead joy. Driving this one gives you that classic 50s feeling of being in-touch with the mechanics of the car. Plus, the automatic transmission and supple Mercury ride make it a great cruiser.br / brbr Everywhere you look proved this is a well-respected and well-restored vehicle (even the undercarriage.) This was born an upper-class cruiser, and thanks to the right investments, that reputation for this one has only grown. So dont miss this classy classic. Call now!br/br/
