Description:

1957 Mercury Monterey Monterey

1957 Mercury Monterey Convertible to Restore. This car is exactly how I bought it. Prior to my purchase the car has had new rear lower quarters welded in and finished out nicely. Floors are solid throughout and may have been replaced and look correct. The exterior is very straight, not wavy and no rust shows on the body or in the floors. The header bow for the top assembly will need metal repair work from rust butthe Top mechanism does fold up and down by hand. Doors open and shut nicely, no sagging. I have no knowledge of any of the mechanical parts of the car. The Motor is just sitting in place and the radiator is just sitting in place. Drive shaft is in the trunk. No Brakes! You cannot drive this car. It rolls and steers for loading. Upholstery has been replaced and would suffice for a driver. Should clean up nicely. You will need a winch to load the car or your transport company must have a winch. Both rear tires will be up and holding air to load the car for transport
Missing parts I know of are Gas Tank, Trunk Latch on the body, Hood Latch on the body, Window crank handles, Door Locks, Keys, sunvisorsand small items that are not hard to find, and there may be other items I am not aware of. All the glass is in the car. If you don't see it in the photos don't assume it is with the car although the trunk is full of parts such as an extra steering column, 4 brake drums, heater box and much more. The Vin Tag is missing but can be purchased on Ebay and numbered to match the title. Title is not in my name but signed and ready to register and I will provide a bill of sale. Buyer should inspect prior to purchase. I have described to the best of my knowledge and make no warranty or guarantee of any kind. I am not a dealer or car restore person.
Included is the Big M for the grill, the other turn signal light lense, a full set of Hubcaps, 4 extra brake drums, heater box, used wiring harness, a glove box liner, a complete extra steering column and gear box and lots of other items in the trunk, a nice pushbutton shifting mechanism for the dash, the kick panels and driver door panel shown in photos.
SOLD AS IS, Not Running or Driveable. Will require a truck or trailer with a winch to load the car, It does NOT RUN and has NO Brakes! I have a bad back and will assist what I can to load but limited. There is NO Guarantee or Warranty of any kind. Whatyou see in the photos is what you get, no more and nothing less.
