1964 Mercury Monterey
Looking for a big & unique Convertible? It doesn't get much better than this 1964 Mercury Montery in Bittersweet with a 390 and factory 4 speed. I talked to the previous owner and the widow of the owner before that. Both said they hardly ever drove the car and kept it in the garage. There have only been 2 owners from the 70s until 2015. The odometer says 47k and I think that is actual miles. I have a receipt from 1980 that shows the mileage at 42,186. The previous owner had the car repainted. Before that it still wore its factory original finish. When the car was repainted all of the jambs were left alone. The trunk and all of the door jamb areas are still factory paint. The front seat was redone and the carpet replaced. All other interior is original and unrestored. The car runs and drives nice. All interior lights, auges and switches work. Heater works good on all speeds and puts out nice heat. The power top goes up and down like it should. There are no rips or tears in the material and the clear plastic back window is nice. All windows roll up and down very smoothly. The doors open and close like you would expect a 47k mile car to. When driving the feels very solid and rattle free. All exterior lights and signals work except the back up lamps. The car is an amazing survivor. I put the 17 X 8 Cragars on it. The original wheel covers are in the trunk. If you prefer the stock look I will buy a brand new set of 4 whitewalls and install them and keep the Cragers. Overall this is an amazingly well cared for and original car. The unique color and mega rare 4 speed really set this car apart from the rest of the crowd. If you have other questions I would be glad to talk to you on the phone like in the "Old Days". Text or email is just fine as well. My number is 573-230-6222. Please try to keep the phone calls 8am to 8pm central. I am located in Jefferson City MO with an excellent location for trucks/trailers/loading. Note: the steering wheel center is missing. I've located two 64 Merc parts and in both cases the steering wheels were scrap. This is the one thing that will need to be addressed.
