Mercury's premium Monterey model line enjoyed several trim and engineering advances that would make a humble Ford owner envious in the early 50's.  The flashy 2-Door hardtop showcased here is a testament to FoMoCo's bold leap forward into contemporary postwar design.  This very low production buildsheet example was factory assembled with power steering and power brakes, features that no one would dream of an early 50's Ford or Mercury.This 1953 Monterey is among the most authentic and well-preserved around.  Just one owner family from new until 2005.  The odometer shows 38,768 miles which are believed to be original.  Just prior to the car's second-hand sale, a thorough restoration and repaint was performed.  The latest owner has since taken numerous trophies with this car in it's current presentation quality.  Chrome and stainless brightwork are complete, very good to excellent condition throughout.  The doors open to a beautiful interior featuring a gorgeous 'Retro-Future' style Mercury dashboard and two-tone red and black vinyl that oozes with 1950's charm.  The Mercury-type flathead V8 is beautifully detailed, complemented by a thoroughly detailed engine compartment and undercarriage.  Youtube video available upon request. Call our classic car division at 815-385-8408 for video and/or vehicle information.
