Classic Car Overview

With an awesome color combo and distinct flathead V8 power, this 1953 Mercury Monterey is quite a desirable cruising classic. And the value price is the cherry on top of this Sunday driver. Mercurys just seem to always get noticed on the classic car scene. As the premium end of Fords lineup, these upper-level Monterey coupes were offered exclusively as hardtops, and they showcased this style with brightwork surrounding every inch of this pillarless roof. And speaking of brightwork, those bumpers are going to get plenty of extra attention. Up front is a shining chrome king that uses its radiance to show off details like the dagmars and big wraparound style. And we love how the rear one integrates itself right into the hint of tailfin. The trim tag tells us this is wearing its correct Yosemite Yellow with India Black roof. This correctness is essential to this coupe because it comes from a Mercury collector who both cherished and drove these classics. And so a correct and driver-ready style is the impression this one gives. As you look closer at this coupe, it even gets the details right with the full-length sweeping side trim, whitewall tires, fender skirts, and the bright hood ornament integrated into the hood design. It just all makes for a feeling that the designers got to spend extra time on a premium-level car like the Monterey. The two-tone yellow and black interior is a great reason to leave the windows down on this pillarless hardtop. People will love to see how this coordinates with the exterior with a premium look thats intertwined on the door panels, seats, and even the gauges. Its nicely detailed with bright trim and aircraft-inspired levers. Even the correct AM radio is still on display, and the under-dash lights greet you when the door opens. So it really feels like true classic motoring every time you grab the thin/grippy steering wheel. The flathead V8 is a legend all on its own, and the 255 cubic-inch displacement was a larger size for premium Mercury cars that was not shared with Ford cars. Plus, 1953 is a moment of pride for V8 fans, because this would be the final year for these legendary flathead motors. So this one keeps it quite vintage, right down to the oil bath air grabber and six-volt electrical system. And as mentioned before, this is coming out of a Mercury collection, so the vintage feeling is still a strong driver. And it remains a proper smooth cruiser that includes an automatic transmission and power steering. This distinct Monterey is everything you want in a classic, and its offered today at a fantastic price. Dont miss this deal, call today!
