Top Choice of the Day: 1951 Mercury Eight Convertible

A Toronto collector is selling a 1951 Mercury Eight Convertible in Vassar Yellow, featuring a complete restoration four years ago. The car has only been driven 50 miles since then and comes with period-correct wide-whitewall tires and various unique features. Powered by a 225cid Ford flathead V8 and Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission, the car is fully functional with power windows and a retractable top. The asking price is $69,700, with the seller noting the car’s unmolested condition makes it one of the finest Mercurys available. The listing includes a video showcasing the car’s details and features.

A Toronto-based collector is giving up a couple of his classic rides, and this Mercury convertible is offered up for grabs as the perfect summer ride for the Ford V8 enthusiasts out there.

“This gorgeous Vassar Yellow convertible has been the recipient of a complete nut-and-bolt restoration just over four years ago,” the listing begins. “Since that time, the vehicle has been driven no more than 50 miles.”

The vanity plate “1951MERK” speaks to fact that this car has been enthusiast-owned. On top of that, the body shows well throughout, and a set of wide-whitewall tires complete the period-correct look. Other features include a hood ornament, a two-piece windshield, a spotlight, and rear wheel skirts. The seller states that the convertible top has been replaced and features rebuilt hydraulics. The power windows, power seat, and power-retractable top are all functioning as designed.

Under the hood, momentum comes from a 225cid Ford flathead V8 that was rated at 112 horsepower and 206 lb-ft of torque. The engine breathes through a Holley two-barrel carburetor, and power is sent rearward through a Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission.

Included in the listing is a four-minute video that includes a walkaround of the exterior, a demonstration of the power options, a look under the hood, and a look through the interior where we see a heater, a compass, and a factory AM radio installed. This car offers a complete package and is ready-to-drive.

Mercury models from the 1940s and 1950s continue to be very popular among the “lead sled” enthusiasts, but it’s impressive to see one that has remained largely unmodified over its 70+ year lifespan. For the Ford and Mercury fans out there, would you keep this one original or give it some custom treatment? Let us know!

The listing concludes, “This Vassar Yellow Mercury convertible is one of the finest unmolested Mercurys anywhere.” The asking price is $69,700 for this “MERK.”
