255 FLATHEAD V8, 3-ON-THE-TREE, FRONT DISCS, CLEAN INTERIOR, RUNS & DRIVES GREAT

This 1953 Mercury Monterey Woody Wagon is everything you love about classics in one vehicle. It has the iconic '53 Merc styling, classic wood sides, and the best flathead V8 under the hood. So the desirability of this one goes beyond just its exceptional rarity.

Mercurys just seem to always get noticed on the classic car scene. As the premium end of Ford's lineup, the upper-level Monterey gave you a broad-shouldered front bumper that made this very much like the Lincolns of the era. As you look closer at this wagon, it even gets the details right with the full-length sweeping side trim, whitewall tires, and the bright hood ornament integrated into the hood design. But what really attracts you to this one is the real wood side paneling. It tastefully contrasts with the glossy red and harmonizes with the tan inserts around the windows to create a thoughtful and very vintage total presentation. We especially like the rear that gives you both style and substance. There's more beautiful wood, and the Mercury-script bumper flows so nicely into the tail light housing. The two-piece tailgate is ideal for all day at the ball games or car shows. And if anything is too messy to take inside ... Please ask for the full description.

255 FLATHEAD V8, 3-ON-THE-TREE, FRONT DISCS, CLEAN INTERIOR, RUNS & DRIVES GREAT

This 1953 Mercury Monterey Woody Wagon is everything you love about classics in one vehicle. It has the iconic '53 Merc styling, classic wood sides, and the best flathead V8 under the hood. So the desirability of this one goes beyond just its exceptional rarity.

Mercurys just seem to always get noticed on the classic car scene. As the premium end of Ford's lineup, the upper-level Monterey gave you a broad-shouldered front bumper that made this very much like the Lincolns of the era. As you look closer at this wagon, it even gets the details right with the full-length sweeping side trim, whitewall tires, and the bright hood ornament integrated into the hood design. But what really attracts you to this one is the real wood side paneling. It tastefully contrasts with the glossy red and harmonizes with the tan inserts around the windows to create a thoughtful and very vintage total presentation. We especially like the rear that gives you both style and substance. There's more beautiful wood, and the Mercury-script bumper flows so nicely into the tail light housing. The two-piece tailgate is ideal for all day at the ball games or car shows. And if anything is too messy to take inside the wagon, there's also a proper tow hitch.

The original idea of a station wagon was to ferry hotel passengers to and from the train station, and so this one still has plenty of space to carry everyone thanks to three rows of seating. The rubber floor covering and durable vinyl on the upholstery also makes sure that you never hesitate to invite everyone to pile in and go for a drive. And while versatile, it also likes to be stylish and comfortable. That's why the seats and doors coordinate in an attractive two-tone, and there's a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo hidden in the glovebox. The classic Mercury steering wheel, large speedo, and aircraft-inspirited levers make for a true classic. And the auxiliary gauge trio under the dash makes for a better driver.

The flathead V8 is a legend all on its own, and the 255 cubic-inch displacement was a larger size for premium Mercury cars that was not shared with Ford cars. Plus, 1953 is a moment of pride for V8 fans, because this would be the final year for these legendary flathead motors. This one wants to make sure you can enjoy this legacy out on the road. So while the motor has a very clean and classic presentation, it's also been upgraded with details like an alternator. It's a smooth motor that's ready to hit the road. This drives like a true classic, right down to the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission, but you do get added confidence in braking with the upgraded front discs.

A Mercury wagon is always a rarity, and there were only about 7,700 made in 1953. So nearly 70 years later, how many do you think survived to look this good and feel this useful? Don't miss an awesome woody from a landmark year. Call today!!!
