1951 Mercury Monterey Coupe 255ci Flathead V8 / Cruise-O-Matic


Description


This car was painted the correct Brewster Green Metallic at Albany Auto Chicago in 2008 and the paint survives in absolutely excellent condition. No spots of bubbling, peeling, paint run, dust nibs….truly show-quality finish. Chrome was restored and has a mirror-like finish throughout, with just one spot of any pitting – very minor on the door handles. Body is nice and straight, no dents, dings, creases, etc. Glass is all clear and crack-free and windows roll nice and smoothly. Bumper-integrated fog light lenses show some aging by way of hairline cracks. Panel fitment is spot-on throughout and doors open and close extremely smoothly.
Unrestored and presumably original, which is cool to see. Front bench seat has some punctures and general wear as you can see in the photos, rear is very nice. Front seat, while worn in a bit, still feels great….not blown-out or excessively soft. Blower motor and heat are functional. This car is not equipped with air conditioning. Original radio is not currently functional. Lights and signals are functional. Windshield wipers are not currently installed but will come with the car. Gauges are all functional and the odometer was reset when the body was restored – actual mileage from new is unknown. Headliner is clean, tight, and intact.
