Description

Dennis Carpenter Collection
255 Flathead - 12 volt Upgrade

STK 3398 1951 Mercury Monterey

This 1951 Mercury convertible was partially restored to original glory in 2008. The Mercury was part of the classic collection of the late Dennis Carpenter, the well-respected Ford restoration specialist here in North Carolina. Originally a Texas car, Dennis bought this Merc over 25 years ago. The beautiful exterior was professionally re-sprayed Mercury Vassar Yellow (2008) that is still in excellent condition. In the tradition of the '50s, there is a generous allotment of chrome, rear fender skirts and wide white Firestone bias-ply tires mounted on 15” steel wheels w/full hubcaps. The original interior is upholstered in Blue-Grey/Cream leather. Upholstery, door cards, window glass, steering wheel, carpets – everything is in excellent condition. The classic '50s dashboard holds a full compliment of gauges along with the original AM radio. Other options include cold air conditioning, power windows, power front seats and a power convertible top that is in very good condition. The Merc is powered by a 255ci flathead V8 that was rated at 112hp/206lb-ft w/Holley 2-bbl carb. The engine was rebuilt in 2008 and a dual exhaust system was installed. The big flathead runs beautifully and everything under the hood looks original. A factory 6-volt electrical system has been converted to a 12-volt alternator based system. The flathead is backed by a 'Touch-O-Matic' 3-speed manual gearbox w/OD and column shift. A clean chassis is equipped with manual steering, front coil/rear leaf spring suspension and manual drum brakes. This Mercury convertible is a beautiful example of a classic early '50s Mercury and would look great in your driveway. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
