Classic Car Overview
1968 Mercury M-100 $12,500
Have you ever seen one of these? This is a very rare 1968 Mercury M250 pickup. This represents the final year of production for Mercury’s version of the Ford F-series. I have never encountered another one.
This truck was sold new on April 26, 1968 by Wiley Mercury in Winnipeg, Manitoba and spent most of its life in Canada. While the Mercury is based on its F250 cousin, it has several unique features. The most notable of these is the Mercury tailgate with stamped lettering – very unique! It also has the Mercury lettering on the hood and special badges on the cowl sides. This example has a great deal of natural patina which is very popular these days. Note some rust has developed in the bed and driver side floor.
The engine appears to be the original Y-code 360ci setup with manual 4-speed transmission. There is a large ratio first gear which is typical of a 3/4-ton setup. Out back is a robust Dana 60 floating rear end. The brakes have been recently serviced front and rear. The exhaust has also been replaced and manifold leaks have been repaired.
The interior is mostly original except for a new cushion and upholstery for the bench seat. The speedometer, gauges, and indicator lights all function properly. So do the wipers, horn, heater defroster, and parking brake. It is an old-school truck without any of the bells and whistles we see today!
This Mercury is a must for any truck collector. It is exceptionally rare, has a great classic look, and is in decent overall condition. It also runs and drives good and even has the original owner’s manual. And you’ll always enjoy watching people look at the truck and say, “Is that really a Mercury?”
All vehicle trades considered, including classics and performance. I can assist with financing and transport as needed.
