Car Description

1953 Mercury Monterey 2-dr Hardtop Coupe powered by a 4.2L 255cui Ford Flathead V8 and driven by a 3-speed column-shift manual transmission.

The Monterey was introduced in 1950 as a high-end two-door coupe as part of the Mercury Eight series in order to compete with the hardtop coupes that GM had introduced the previous model year. This 1st generation Mercury got a styling and engineering redesign for 1952, which included 18% more window area. The Monterey became a separate series and Mercury’s top model line, and a convertible and four-door sedan were included in the new series lineup. The heater and vent controls were changed to levers and placed on a plane set perpendicular to the dash behind the steering wheel, inspired by flight controls in large aircraft.

This Monterey is a wonderful driving automobile with 50’s style custom treatments. It features the 4.2L 255cui stock Flathead V8 with wonderful sounding mellow tone dual exhaust, and a 3-speed manual column-shift transmission with overdrive. The car has been fitted with fender skirts, has been tastefully lowered all the way around, and finished in factory colors of Superior Blue over Banff Blue. The interior sees Dark Blue and White leather upholstery.

This car has a wonderful look, stance and feel; just like you would have seen in a High School parking lot back in 1958!!
