1955 Mercury Montclair Sun Valley

The 1955 Mercury Montclair Sun Valley was Mercury's premium automobile line. It hasthe highly desirable, very rare and unique Plexiglas acrylic-glass half roof, which extends back from the windshield frameworkover the front half of the roof section,and also tinted for glare reduction.This feature allows for plenty of natural light inside the cabin. But if you want to avoid the sun, it also has a convenient roof curtain (fabric shade) that zips around and covers the plexiglass from within.

This car also has a nice two-tone color scheme on the exterior and interior. It has a fold-down armrest in the rear seat.
Motor was rebuild 3 years ago, but currently is not starting, and it has some rust, so it needs work. A great project to restore it and make it a 75-85K car!!! ( See the estimate here:https://www.mecum.com/lots/CA0817-299865/1955-mercury-montclair-sun-valley/)
Sold AS IS, WHERE it is (zip 32837). BUYER is responsible for all transfer and registration fees as well as shipping/delivery charges.
Note:This has been owned by my family since it come out of the lot. It's going with manuals, and 2 boxes of extra parts (too many to list). It has it's original upholstery and that is in super great shape (considering it is 65 years old!!)
