1963 Mercury Other Meteor S33RELIST DUE TO NON-PAYING WINNING BIDDER.
ABOUT THIS CAR: The Last year for the Meteor, nd the only year for the 2 dr hardtop S-33.
This is the infamous 1963 Mercury Meteor S-33 2 dr Hardtop Lightning. A super driver quality car that has been very well kept. A survivor car if you will. You can check out all of the detailed pictures at the link below. As you see the original color is Sultana White (eggshell). It has received one re-paint several years back. It is still white-just brighter. This MERC is the "SUPER RARE" "S33"-NOT A CLONE (47 in VIN#) / 4865 MADE), LIGHTNING". During the repaint process, the S33 badges were removed from the rear fenders. I only have 1 to go back on and it will be included with this Sale. It has a 3 speed automatic transmission with power steering. It was originally the "Merc-O-Matic transmission. The feature I thought unique to this car is the steering column shift lever and factory bucket seats with a console. It does have provisions for a shifter in console. This way you could even make it a 4-speed if you wanted to???? It has a 1963 A/C unit installed with a modern compressor that blows ICE. Everything works as it is suppose to. PLEASE READ ON-I SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST.

This car has options that was not on every Meteor such as:
- S-33 package/ with bucket seats
- Remote outside mirror
- Air conditioner
- Power steering
- Originally a 2-speed automatic-Now a 3
- Reverse lights
- Chrome trim everywhere inside and out
- Came with a 260 V-8 ( Upgraded to a 302 out of a 68 Fairlane)-SEE PICTURE FOR BLOCK #'S
- Padded sun visors
- Door edge guards (fitted)
- Tinted windows- Now darker than factory
- Padded dash
Finally, he powertrain has been upgraded to a 1968 coded 302 engine from a Fairlane ("A" code) AND a 3 speed automatic transmission. So, he possibilities are unlimited. It has been converted to a serpentine belt drive. However, he original 2 barrel carb. was rebuilt and installed. The engine is strong and healthy so let your HI-PO Imagination run free. It breathes through true dual exhaust with that signature Ford throaty sound. She also rides on excellent 14" radial tires with chrome wheels and "baby moon" centers.
