Sales-TPA (813) 501-1630 4610 Pet Lane, Suite 105 Lutz Florida 33559 1954 Mercury Monterey Vehicle Information VIN: 54ME82138M Stock: 1314-TPA Mileage: 76,038 Color: Bittersweet Trans: 3 Speed Manual Engine: 256CI MPG: Drivetrain: Description With its cool coordination, unique style, a touch of hot rod flair, and averaging less than 1,200 miles annually, this 1954 Mercury Monterey is a distinct and attention-grabbing cruiser offered at quite a nice price.
Mercurys just seem to always get noticed on the classic car scene. As the premium end of Ford's lineup, these upper-level Monterey coupes were offered exclusively as hardtops, and they showcased this style with brightwork surrounding every inch of this pillarless roof. And speaking of brightwork, those bumpers prove they are true chrome kings with a shine so mirror-like that the ladies will use it to check their makeup. The other reason why they'll be thinking about applying lipstick is thanks to the glossy red paint. There was a recent professional application of Bittersweet red, and it has a level of luster that is exactly what you want on a '50s cruiser like this. And the black roof has just as much gloss to create a terrific two-tone. As you look closer it this coupe, it even gets the details right with the full-length sweeping side trim, factory wheel covers, and the bright hood ornament integrated into the hood design. The sale even comes with the rear fender skirts to ensure you look like a proper 1950s premium street machine.
The same red and black two-tone you love on the exterior is continued inside the coupe. It looks especially nice on the door panels where the streak of black is equal parts premium and sporty. The same goes for the two-tone seats that have plenty of room to carry family and friends. And while this is a great premium cruiser for everyone, it's the driver who gets to enjoy this the most. That's why you not only got the artful steering wheel and long speedometer, but also the space between those has all the essential controls. And in a cool interior like this, the additions of the auxiliary gauge trio and Hurst floor shifter heighten the Saturday night cruiser feeling.
Under the hood is something special. 1954 was the debut of Ford's new V8 â€“ the Y-block that would make cars like the Thunderbird famous. This 256 cubic-inch displacement was only available in a Mercury and only in 1954. Plus, this one is also topped by the correct Holley four-barrel downdraft carburetor. So this motor is not only a great one to talk about, but it's a great powerhouse for driving. You have a glasspack-style dual exhaust that gives this V8 a nice tone, and the three-speed manual transmission gives you good control over it all. Add in power steering and power brakes, and this is a terrific period-correct cruiser.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the distinctive classic that's a well-coordinated balance of premium and sporty. And at a price like this, you know this total package is irresistible. Call today!!!
