This beautiful 1955 Mercury Monterey comes from the late Bob Wehe Collection/ Estate. The Monterey was introduced in the 1950 as part of the Mercury Eight series. The car was designed to compete head to head with GM's hardtop coupes which had taken the automotive world by storm. The pillar less design, known simply as a hardtop, gave the appearance of a convertible with the all the advantages of a fixed roof. This gorgeous 1955 is a classic example of what the 50's were all about. The white body and hard top gives the classic example of what the 50’s look and the chrome trim absolutely screams Americana. Add to this Coker wide white wall tires with the two rears being concealed by a set of fender skirts finishing off the period correct exterior. Pop the hood and you will find a very detailed engine compartment with a 292 V8. With the chrome breather and valve cover are painted the factory color. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, the turn of the key the V8 come to life and settle down to a smooth idle in no time. Backed up by the classic Cruise- O-Matic transmission driving this beauty is pure pleasure and shifts through all three gears without a hitch. In drive the car will actually start out I second gear. Low gear should only be used at low speeds. Open the door and the front bench seat is very inviting with the vinyl matching the exterior as well. The huge steering wheel looks great and is sure to remind you of when and where this car came from.
