This is a VERY STRAIGHT, ORIGINAL and COMPLETE 1953 MERCURY CUSTOM 2 DOOR HARDTOP. CALIFORNIA CAR FOREVER. PLEASE DO NOT PHONE ME UNLESS YOU ARE READY WITH THE CASH. However, I do have a complete slideshow for those who email their direct email address. The FACTORY FLATHEAD 125 HP engine was remanufactured, blueprinted and hardened valves added to handle the higher octane gas nowadays. Also under the hood is TWO FORD Holley 94's that were JUST rebuilt. Transmission is 3 Spd manual with factory option WORKING OVERDRIVE. The trans and clutch are excellent. The wheel cylinders, master cylinder, water pumps, intake are all new. It now resides in my warehouse under a car cover awaiting the next car show. Like it, buy it. You won't be disappointed. And if you don't like MY price, there is always THIS ONE I can show you selling for $40k.
The body is really straight with some trim pieces in the trunk after a small RS swipe probably twenty years ago. The car has no damage, but the bumpers and tail light bezels do need a re-chrome.
