1953 Mercury Monterey Additional Info:

1953 Mercury Monterey in very good condition. car is from south Dakota still has dealer sticker on bumper. imported to Canada in early 90's and stored inside for all but 3 of those years.
The Bad:
  • no engine. was a flathead seized solid previous owner removed
  • needs probably 5 body mounts repaired
  • look closely at the pictures, ou will see the small spots that need some attention, ther than that the car is very solid
  • previous owner scabbed some home made rocker panels on, hey are covered by moulding but I would cut them out and replace with repro rockers.
  • repair to right lower door ok and workable, am fussy for clean metal so I would probably source a door

The Good:
  • solid car all considered.
  • trunk floor has had a patch
  • floor sections have had patches
  • fairly complete car
  • brand new gas tank and sender
  • new wheel cylinders, rakes do work
  • original paint on the bottom, found mask lines on the rubber so i suspect the black roofwas done after the factory

overall this is a great foundation to start with. i am only selling for one reason: i bought this to make a sunvalley glasstopout of it but my donor car and roof fell through. i am looking at a complete sunvalley projectcar which may work out better. hadplanned on an EFI 302 with overdrive. great ride painted up
