The Pick of a Day is a kind of stylish Mercury that comes to mind when we hear, “Crazy ‘bout a Mercury/Lord I’m crazy ‘bout a Mercury/I’m gonna buy me a Mercury/And journey it adult and down a road.”
The pale-yellow 1953 Mercury Monterey convertible advertised on ClassicCars.com is a “solid Southern California car” with a still-shiny comparison repaint, a Houston-based play says. The stylish ragtop comes finish with full circle covers, buffer skirts and wide-whitewall tires for a duration demeanour that still resonates today.
“It had spent some time in storage in California before it was pulled out of a doze and refurbished for cruising duty,” a seller says. “The prior owners settled that a 255 flathead V8 and involuntary delivery were rebuilt 2,000 miles ago. It certain does run like it!
“The front and behind bumpers were rechromed and a other splendid work was possibly discriminating out or replaced. The tan Hartz cloth tip is energy operated. It has a purify and transparent behind window. All of a gauges and lights seem to be in operative order, even a singular GE front haze lamps.”
This pleasure qualification looks prepared for a summer-evening drive, a large styling certain to spin heads as it glides past. The Yosemite Yellow paint accentuates a jet-age look, with a yellow-and-black interior that looks to be in glorious condition.
Just over 56,000 miles is display on a odometer, and a play says a automobile is prepared to go with no vital issues.
Priced during $39,999, a Mercury would be a fun classical to expostulate and enjoy, hunkered down behind a extended steering circle with that special date or with a garland of buddies on board. Cruisin’ adult and down a road.
