1948 Mercury Coupe Eight

Beautiful1948 Mercury Coupe Eight, Museum Quality! Power was from a V-8 engine capable of producing 100 horsepower at 3800 RPM. A three-speed manual was standard and there were four bodystyles to select from : a station wagon, convertible, town sedan, and a sedan coupe. Pricing began at $1650 and went to $2200 for the eight-passenger station wagon.
There really is not a lot to say about this one, the pictures tell it all! This is one of the few cars that actually look as good in person as in the pictures, maybe better. Found in the mid 90's stored in an old garage, this Mercury was resurrected and restored to original condition and completed in 2000. The body was taken off the frame, repainted the original Tuscon Tan and all exterior chrome and trim was either replaced or redone. The interior was redone with a Lebaron Bonny upholstery kit and the engine was completely rebuilt with some new maintenance items over the last few years. This old Mercury rides, handles and looks terrific and would be at home in any auto museum.
