For sale in our Chicago showroom is a 1946 Mercury Eight. Until 1952 Mercury only made one model, the Eight. Powered by the original 239 CID V8 and shifted manually via 3-speed column-shifted transmission, this is a very pleasant car. With as much originality as this car has, it still has been kept up very well over the years, and has had a number of parts replaced since â??05, including all of the brakes overhauled, a new battery, new gas tank and sending unit and the lighting system has been gone through to replace any faulty sockets.
A vehicle of this age is truly not a common sight, especially one in such clean shape. Add to the list of features of this car a movie appearance, and one can see how special this car really is! The vehicle was used in â??The Miracle Matchâ? and a copy of the film is included in the sale. The interior matches the exterior in terms of cleanliness and it is very accommodating. The vehicle starts up with a purr, and this flat-head V8 will take you anywhere the road goes. Shifting the transmission is a breeze, and the brakes slow you to a safe halt on demand with no drama.
This is a great opportunity to own a movie star! Options include: AM Radio, Hub Caps, Seat Belts, Cloth Interior, and Wide White Walls.
