1963 Mercury Monterey Additional Info:

This is a beautiful 1963 Mercury Monterey. Completely gone through/restored. Basically everything has been replaced. I will be as thorough as possible but there is so much I may miss something so ask questions. I have sold quite a few cars here on eBay and have all positive feedback / transactions. I had another eBay account prior to my divorce (shared with my ex) if you would like to speak with previous buyers that can be arranged.She runs amazing (starts on half a crank with no gas) shifts smooth, cruises at 70mph no problem, runs cool, turns heads and makes ppl stop me to ask questions every time I take her out.Sad to sell but I am getting married and need the money.So much invested.Our goal was to build a daily driver that looks bone stock but with modern reliability.Less than 1500 miles since rebuild

I will be posting more pictures tomorrow of interior, undercarriage, engine bay etc.
The only items/issues I can think of are as follows:Driver wind wing operator handle missing (but I just ordered).Driver tail light cracked (just ordered).Light scratches to front window from bad windshield wipersLight scratches to rear windowPaint is exceptionally good looking but small chips and flaws. Most notably paint chip about 1” diameter where we tried to use a dent removal tool to remove a pressure ding (so upset about this) I will upload detail pic tomorrow.Gauges don’t work but aftermarket gauges do. Speedo works great.Trunk keyed lock is missing.
The whole undercarriage has been cleaned and painted and there is no notable rust.I have new front shocks I will be installing .Custom waterproof car cover included.Interior is near flawless.
