1962 Mercury Other

Hi thanks for looking.. I have a 1962 Mercury Meteor 2 door that was in storage over 40 years. It has just of 47,000 miles but do to sitting the engine was seized .I oiled the cylinders and over a 4 week period I worked it free by hand on the fa, o tools. I decided not to try to start in case someone wanted to rebuild and take chance of broken ring hurting the block. The car is rust free except for a half dollar sized hole in the drivers floor. The floor is solid and does not need a replacement just small patch. The guy who found it was going to fix it so he put 4 new tires on it. He purchased a new fuel tank and sender, brake drums and a master cylinder rebuild kit as there are no brakes. The body is in great shap, o rust on frame body or under hood. No dents or creases except some damage on right front fender and bumper. see photo. The windshield is broken but it is available for $271 from Dearborn Classics. All other glass is good. The interior is great with the exception of a carpet, removed it tocheck the floor and the headliner has 2 small holes from mice. The trunk is excellent and under hood is as well. This is an excellent project car . Some like to buy the cheap car and spend thousands on floor, quarters, oors and bodywork . If you like a solid car and want to spend your money on something other than sheet metal. This is it!!! I have lots of photos and the car is on a trailer now. I have no were to keep it . I want it to have a good home and not sit outside and get ruined. I listed this before and had a much higher reserve .It has been lowered to sell so lets bid. Think of this with a 352, 06, 27 or maybe a late FI engine. It is such a solid car I hope to see it done. I am listing local pickup nut can travel some to make pickup easier. No warranty or refunds so please ask questions. Ineed it sold so will do my best to facilitate that. Thanks again
