It has a very solid, mostly rust free body with beautiful patina. The floorboards are exceptionally good. The passengers side cab corner has some very minor rust through. The front fenders and doors where these trucks are prone to corrosion are incredibly solid with no signs of rust. There are very few dents, the body is very straight. The Mercury tailgate is in excellent condition. It has had a grain shoot cut into the tailgate but fortunately the Mercury lettering has not been damaged. All Mercury specific emblems are present and in great shape. It has a PTO driven hoist fitted to the bed as with the majority of prairie farm trucks from this era. This is why the bed sits higher than factory. If wanted this could be easily removed and the bed could be re-mounted at the factory height. Overall this is a very good solid and all original example of a very rare Mercury truck.
The interior is complete and in very good condition for its age with a very nice dashboard. The seat will require work.
Mechanically this truck is a very good place to start. The original Flathead V8 was rebuilt 12 years ago but it has been parked for 10 years. We hooked up a 6 volt battery from another truck and poured some gas into the carburetor and it started and ran for a few seconds, long enough to verify that the clutch works and all gears can be selected on the 4 speed manual transmission. It would not take much to make this truck into a driver.
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.
This will make a great project being that it will not take much to get driving and is incredibly rust free. It has been very well preserved. Selling withNo Reserveto the highest bidder.

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.
