1955 1/2 MERCURY MONTEREY 2-DOOR HARDTOP
Lime green & white. I DIDN''T DRIVE IT FAR BUT IT SEEMS TO DRIVE FINE. THE LAST OWNER HAD IT FOR WELL OVER 40 YEARS. THIS IS ONE YOU CAN ENJOY NOW AND TINKER WITH IT ALONG THE WAY, LOTS OF EYE APPEAL, THE EXTERIOR COLOR IS KIND OF A SUB LIME GREEN DOWN LOW WITH WHITE ON THE TOP HALF OF THE CAR AND ON THE TOP. THE VINYL BENCH SEAT INTERIOR IS BLACK AND WHITE AND IN REALLY NICE DRIVER /CRUISER CONDITION. THE ENGINE IS THE STANDARD V-8 WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. TO DATE AS FAR AS I CAN TELL THERE'S VERY VERY MINIMAL RUST ON THE CAR. THE TRUNK PAN IS EXCELLENT AND THE TRUNK STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL CARDBOARD LINERS,TRUNK MAT AND SPARE. THE BUMPERS ARE STRAIGHT AND SHINY BUT DO HAVE SOME PITTING HERE AND THERE. ALL OF THE CURVED GLASS IS GOOD WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ONE SMALL CHIP IN THE WINDSHIELD, AS FOR THE FLAT GLASS THE TWO-DOOR GLASSES ARE CRACKED AND THE RIGHT VENT WINDOW IS CRACKED. ALL OF THE EXTERIOR BRIGHTWORK IS IN PLACE AND THE STAINLESS IS IN GREAT SHAPE AND THE LIGHTS, TAILLIGHTS, BLINKERS, HORN, DOMELIGHT AND THE GLOVE BOX LIGHT ALL WORK. ALL OF THE WINDOWS CRANK UP AND DOWN WITH EASE....YES EVEN THE QUARTER WINDOWS CRANK UP AND DOWN W/ONLY ONE HAND. THE WHITE VINYL HEADLINER IS IN GREAT SHAPE WITH NO RIPS OR TEARS AND THE BLACK AND WHITE VINYL BENCH SEATS ARE IN GREAT SHAPE WITH ONLY ONE SMALL 4" TEAR IN THE FRONT SEAT, THE BLACK VINYL DOOR PANELS (BOTH FRONT AND REAR) ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. THE TIRES ARE PRETTY WEATHER CHECKED BUT HOLD AIR AND I'M NOT TO SURE AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THE FULL HUBCAPS ARE CORRECT FOR THE OLE MERCURY.
