1954 Ford F-100 Mercury M1001954Mercury M100 (Ford F100) Deluxe Short Bed Pickup Truck. This is an un-restored barn find truck. The original Flathead V8 is partially disassembled and in need of a full rebuild or replacement. A very good candidate for a full restoration due to rarity and very minimal body rust or alternatively sit the nicely patina'd body onto a modern drivetrain, the choice is yours. Either way it's a very rare and unique one of a kind truck. Selling withNo Reserveto the highest bidder. Contact must be made within 24 hours of the auction ending or it will be assumed that you have no intention of honoring your bid and the truck will be offered to others. Zero Feedback bidders must make contact prior to bidding.
It has a remarkably solid, mostly rust free body with no bondo. There is zero rust around the headlamp areas of the front fenders which is very nice to see on this era Ford/Mercury truck. The only rust through appears to be the passengers side cab corner, the drivers side is solid. The paint has a very nice patina if that is what you are looking for. The floorboards are very impressive and remarkably solid. The door bottoms are also rust free although the doors have 'dropped' a little making them awkward to close. The fenders are in excellent shape other than a badly repaired crack in the passengers side front fender. The running boards are in good shape with no rust. The all important and very hard to find Mercury tailgate is rust free and very straight. All emblems are present and in nice condition. There are some dents/bullet holes in the cab and all of the glass was shot out. We have had a new windshield, new vent windows and a new rear window installed. Overall this is a good solid example of a very rare 1954 Mercury M Series pickup truck and especially desirable being a half ton.
The interior is complete and ingood condition for its age with a nice instrument cluster. The very rare and 54-56 specific Mercury horn button is present. The seat will need re-upholstering.
This truck rolls and steers freely for ease of loading onto a trailer or moving into a shop. All tires hold air.
Due to the much smaller Canadian market, Ford of Canada only sold approximately one tenth as many trucks as Ford did in the US and around two thirds of those were Ford's leaving the remaining third to be Mercury's. So very few of these trucks were produced and it is becoming much harder for us to source nice original and complete examples such as this. Due to Canada's harsh climate only a handful remain today.1954 was the lowest production number year for Mercury trucks followed by 1955. This is due to huge wheat surpluses for the first time since before the war causing farm incomes to rapidly decline in 1954. This in turn had a huge affect on Canadian farmers purchasing trucks due to wheat being Canada's largest agricultural commodity. This wasn't such an issue out east so you will find more 54/55 Mercury trucks out east but the trouble is they are all severely eaten away by rust. It is very seldom that you see 54/55, especially 54's out west where the climate is much kinder to the body's making this a very special find. We've had an abundance of 1953 Mercury trucks but this is the first 1954.
This will make a great project being that it is a very rare truck with very little rust to contend with. It deserves a fresh drivetrain and bringing back to life. Selling withNo Reserveto the highest bidder. Please be aware this vehicle requires a full restoration so no warranty is implied or given. We describe these vehicles as thoroughly as possible with detailed photographs as we are aware the majority of buyers are a long way away. You are more than welcome to view the truck, have it inspected and request as many photos as you like before the auction ends.

If you decide to use an alternative shipper, please make them aware if the vehicle is a 'non-runner' and, therefore, will require a winch for loading and unloading. We are not responsible if you book a shipper who is incapable of loading the vehicle.
Due to the nature of what we do, we are often on the road in search of new vehicles, so please be sure to make us aware of your shipping/collection arrangements ahead of time, so that we can arrange to be there to meet you or your shipper.
