1953 Mercury Monterey

For sale is this 1953 Mercury Monterey Kustom with a big block Chrysler engine. It did not have that engine when I bought it for my husband five years ago. He was really a Mopar guy. The husband is gone but the car remains. I love her - the lines, he loud, he lake pipes, nd the sheer power. She runs and drives. She is a beast and needs work. Stripped to bare metal and repainted this summer. It was the flat mint color when I bought it; the ex painted it the dark blue and I had it painted teal.
