1939 Mercury Other

A new clear Kentucky title is in-hand. There is a clerical mistake in that the title indicates the engine to be a 6-cylinder. This should pose no problem.Also the mileage is stated as900000 because actual mileage is unknown. I'm posting plenty of photos to illustrate the condition of the car and to show an assortment of parts and pieces that will go with it. I expect anyone interested will appreciate that this is a restoration project and understands what is entailed. Or it would be good for parts. I can't tell you much about the car beyond what you can see. I brought it from south Alabama to Kentucky and for the photos I did what I could with a shop-vac and a garden hose. Three of the tires aired up in Alabama and held to where it sits. The front ones are still holding about 2 months later. There is another tire mounted on a wheel that isn't in the photos. The transmission shifter is free and after sitting 12 years the engine will turn by hand as will the water-pump pulleys and the generator. The steering also worked fine for loading and unloading. Selling AS IS local pick-up only. I can try to help the buyer find someone to transport but that would in no way be part of this auction. Prospective buyers are welcome to come look at the car in person. PLEASE take note of payment details regarding anything other than cash payment and understand that the deposit is NOT REFUNDABLE. This is to discourage irresponsible bidders. Thank you very much for looking and I'll try to answer questions with the limited knowledge I have.
