Description for Mercury Monterey 1954

Finally selling my '54 Mercury.I've had it since 2001, an the LaCarrera Panamericana in Mexico; which is a 2,200 mile road-race from the Southern tip of Mexico to Laredo, exas.

The car was from Nevada when I got it, o it's pretty solid. I did take it out to the Bonneville Speed Week a few years back, nd the salt has prompted some surface rust.

The car is street legal, ut it would be race ready with a new fire system, nd up-to-date belts and window nets. You could run the LaCarrera, he Targa Newfoundland in Canada, r Vintage Racing almost anywhere! The body itself is still stock, o you bring it back to original look.

It has a 302 H.O. that has about 5,000 miles on a fresh rebuild and clutch after the race.It has an Edelbrock manifold and 600 cfm carburetor with a Holley electric fuel pump. We installed a brand new World Class T-5 5 speed tranny from Summit just before the race, o it probably has about 8,000 miles on it. It also has power 4-wheel disc brakes, nd rack and pinion steering. It has Koni Oval Track Racing Shocks all around, ut I think the left front one might need rebuilding, ause it dives slightly when hitting a big dip.

The car handles well, nd is very reliable; I just drove it back from Florida over 1,100 miles a few weeks ago, nd got over 16 m.p.g!

The only thing it would need to be a daily driver would be door windows and mechanisms; we removed them way back when for weight, nd because we didn't really expect to make it back from Mexico.

If you were cruising around in this '54, guarantee you'd be the only one around with a ride like this!
