1951 Mercury Sport Sedan Additional Info:

Now for some of the minor issues I have yet to complete.Although the interior is very clean and complete, there are some minor tears on the door panel. Secondly, the tires should be in my opinion 4 inch whitewalls but have yet to invest in them... Hopefully the new owner gives this gal a new pair of shoes.
I do hope this Merc goes to a new owner that loves these years as much as we have enjoyed and been able to be proud owners... Enjoy
