Classic Car Overview

With its sought-after style and added hot rod flair, this 1951 Mercury Monterey is a distinct and attention-grabbing V8 cruiser youre going to love. Mercurys just seem to always get noticed. As the premium end of Fords lineup, these coupes had the kind of style that makes them ultra-desirable on the custom car scene. This one seems to get the mix right where you can instantly see there was an investment in uniqueness, but it also retains all the right vintage style. The best place to see it is on the front bumper. Its a true chrome king with a double-hump style the incorporates the grille. Theres even a jet-inspired overriders leading the way. Its all mirror-like, so the ladies will use it to check their makeup. And the sleek black paint of the body really knows how to add extra emphasis to the full brightwork package. Theres plenty of classic style in the fender skirts and black vinyl roof. This is joined by custom elements like the color-matched sun visor, dual spotlights, tinted windows, dual exhaust tips, and smoothie wheels wide whitewalls. Just like the exterior, the interior has the right classic style mixed with cool upgrades. You instantly recognize this the moment you open the door and see the red upholstery radiating from within. The cloth is both bold and comfy. Its not only vibrant on the two rows of bench seats, but also the door panels, headliner, and floor mats. But while the color is upgraded, they kept the awesome vintage look of the classic steering wheel and art deco dash. Even elements like the classic AM radio and heater remain in place to complete the display. So you get the right mix of boldness, comfort, and nostalgia. But for this cars boldest touch, you need to lift the hood. The golden block radiating within the dark engine bay is there to make sure people really see youve got an upgrade in here. After all, theres nothing wrong with a Flathead V8, but Fords later 430 cubic-inch big block is the kind of motor we absolutely love.

It has the right cruising attitude with features like the automatic transmission and upgraded power brakes with front discs. And the newer dual exhaust gives off the right V8 tune. Complete with owners manual, this is the distinctive classic thats a great balance of vintage and custom. That makes for an irresistible icon. Call today!!!
