DESCRIPTION

This gorgeous Mercury Phaeton is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful Ford products ever built. This car has been restored and updated with 12 volt power, new paint and upholstery. and repowered with a Chevrolet V8 engine. It is being sold by the family of a local collector and here are the appraiser's comments from a 2018 appraisal: The 1940 Mercury Phaeton described herein represented a very good overall example of a

traditional Hot Rod conversion.

While retaining the basic external looks and characteristics of this seventy eight year old

classic automobile, this extremely rare '40 Mercury Phaeton looks just as if it were custom

fabricated way back in the late fifties and early sixties.

With features such as a small block Chevy motor, and a custom

upholstered interior.

As noted on the extensive Hot Rod Conversion pages, and as depicted on the many enclosed

digital photographs, this Hot Rod was custom fabricated using the many of the finest modern

components available at that time.

The 1940 Mercury Phaeton is an extremely rare automobile. If restored again it would likely

be most valuable put back to its original factory configuration.
