Beautiful and rare 40 merc Convertible mildly customized with performance upgrades resulting in the ultimate 50’s style cruiser. Solid original car that was fully restored years ago.
Gorgeous show quality paint and body in “Surf Blue.” Very straight panels with excellent body gaps throughout. Paint is fully sanded and buffed for a mirror finish. Still shows great with only little imperfections here and there from use. All chrome and stainless was restored at time of restoration. Fender skirts are removeable if you prefer that look.
Interior shows great in Oxblood red with a tan Canvas power top. A custom Banjo steering wheel was added and gives more seating room. Power top works great and top is in good condition with no holes but shows some age. Top has a black canvas boot that looks great installed.
The Merc flathead V8 has been upgraded with fully polished Offenhauser heads and dual stromburg intake, MSD electronic ignition, and Reds Headers with full dual exhaust. The 3 speed transmission shifts great and the Hydraulic brakes stop the car well. Rolls on Radial wide whitewall tires. car has a slightly lowered stance for the 50’s traditional custom look. The complete wiring harness was replaced with a new factory correct cloth bound harness. All of the gauges work well.
Great cruiser that always draws a ton of attention at the shows. 40 Mercs are super cool and not often seen in the rare convertible body style. Ready to enjoy!
