1939 Mercury 2-door sedan
This beautiful 1939 Mercury 2-door sedan (first year for Mercury) came via an auction from the Towe Auto Museum in Sacramento in 1999. Previously it was displayed at the Towe Auto Museum in Deer Lodge Montana for nearly 20 years. In 2010 the Mercury was extensively modified with new interior, a new Flathead engine and modern running gear. The Mercury is very straight,looks great and runs great. Overall mileage is unknown, however less than 2000 miles have been put on the car since the rebuild.
The interior was redone in period correct materials, with seat belts and power windows added. In addition, new vintage appearing gauges were added, and an AM/FM/CD player under the dash, easily removed if not desired. The dash was repainted, and all areas of the interior were restored.
The engine was replaced in 2010, and is new. Highlights of the mechanical restoration included:
Â·New modified vintage Mercury correct flathead 8 cyclinder, bored and stroked to approximately 300 cubic inches
