1962 Mercury Monterey Custom Convertible
Honestly, how many of these have you seen lately? You are bidding on an ultra-rare 1962 Mercury Monterey Custom Convertible, finished in its original factory color combination: Sultana White & Fieldstone Tan. This incredible car underwent a rotisserie restoration nearly 10 years ago and it still looks amazing. It was taken down to the frame and every nut & bolt was removed, cleaned/painted to factory-new condition. She’s been driven less than 500 miles since the $35,000 restoration was completed. The paint still looks incredible after 10 years, which tells me that the restoration was done correctly. Originally a Southern California car, the original body panels have zero rust and are laser straight all of the way around. The chrome & stainless trim is excellent, the rear bumper is very nice, but the front bumper is starting to peel just a little bit. If you are looking for the finest 1962 Mercury Monterey Convertible in the country, this is probably it. When you slide into the gorgeous deluxe interior, you will swear that it’s 1962 all over again! It is absolutely beautiful everywhere your eyes land. The seats and door panels are NOS. The dash is covered with chrome accents and all of the gauges, lights, blinkers, power top, clock, radio, deluxe heater, everything works perfectly! Pop open the hood and you will find the original 352 ci motor, which was rebuilt & balanced during the restoration process. The original 352 ci motor is linked to the original Multi-Drive Merc-O-Matic (Dual Range) transmission which feeds power to the original 3.00 rear end. The transmission & rear end were also completely rebuilt during the restoration, along with the original carburetor, brakes, radiator, rear-end, front suspension, etc. She starts, idles, runs and drives beautifully in every way with no issues whatsoever and is an absolute blast to drive. The factory power steering and factory power brakes make driving around town effortless. She sits on her original wheels w/ deluxe Mercury wheel covers and white-wall tires. Along with the free & clear title, the new owner will get the original owners manual, several original registration cards, several original service manuals, original license plates and a binder full of receipts from the restoration. Again, when was the last time you saw one of these incredible machines, if ever? This is a classic car that you can drive & enjoy to the fullest, but still win some trophies at any car event that you decide to enter. This ultra-rare 1962 Mercury Monterey Custom Convertible will certainly appreciate in value as the years go by. Enclosed shipping is available anywhere in the world at the buyer’s expense.
