It looks especially nice on the door panels where its equal parts premium and sporty. The same goes for the two-tone seats with their tuck and roll-like style. Theres plenty of room for family and friends in this coupe, but this Mercury is also pleasing just when cruising solo. Youll enjoy the classic steering wheel, art deco dash, and column shifter. Plus, the full auxiliary gauge trio is a sign of some extra fun under the hood. Fords flathead V8 is always a great sight to see. Everything looks quite tidy here, including those dual hoses doing a 90-degree dive into the motor.

You really get to enjoy the V8 power and its soundtrack to the fullest thanks to the three-speed manual transmission.
