Monterey 1952

Title Status --
Exterior Color Fanfare Maroon
Interior Color Red


This 1952 Mercury Monterey is impressive right down to the details. So you\'ll appreciate everything from the classic fender skirts to the working AM radio. And it\'s all these little things that add up to a well-restored V8 hardtop that cruises with premium distinction.
The first-generation Monterey had a terrific premium flair. You paid extra for a Mercury, and so they showcased this style with plenty of chrome surrounding every inch. These really had a distinct look with the grille and the bumper part of an integral design. And you see the same in the rear where the ends of the bumper expand to merge with the hint of tailfin. And even the brightwork details are great, like the full-length trim, hood ornament merged with a hood scoop, and factory wheel covers with the bright red Mercury logo at the center. And speaking of red, the Fanfare Maroon is a beautiful color that\'s both vivid and premium. And the Pebble Tan roof nicely showcases the hardtop and wraparound rear glass. It\'s all part of an older frame-off restoration that has been treated with the kind of care that will continue to make this a hit at cruise-ins and car shows.
The deep red continues inside for a well-coordinated attitude with the exterior. It\'s now joined by a nice gray on the door panels, headliner, and comfy cloth seat inserts. The smooth dash, plush carpeting, clear gauges, and clean steering wheel are all part of the inviting feeling of a nice driver. You\'ll love rolling down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop and going for a cruise. And driving feels like a true time warp right down to details like the aircraft-inspired controls around the working AM radio.
The flathead V8 is always a great sight to see, especially because this 255 cubic-inch unit was a larger size reserved for the premium Mercury cars. Everything looks quite tidy here, including the bold green block and those dual hoses doing a 90-degree dive into the motor. It\'s all quite vintage, and they took care to keep it that way because the odometer likely represents the full mileage. So it\'s a true classic. That\'s why it has an unmistakable vintage feel on the road. But features like the smooth-shifting automatic transmission and the Mercury\'s easy cruising nature make it a fun classic driver. And as you look underneath, the boxed frame for added strength and overall clean style give you added confidence when going down the road.
The sale comes complete with the owner\'s manual, wiring diagram, and classic sales promotions. This is the restored Monterey hardtop that has a cool premium appearance and a true vintage cruiser attitude. So if you love a proper classic, this one is irresistible. Call today!!!
