Description of this Mercury Monterey 1952

This 1952 Mercury Monterey convertible shines a little brighter, growls a little deeper, and cruises a little better. So when an subtly upgraded rare classic like this is also turn-key ready, you know you're looking at one great deal.
This was the first year for the Monterey to be its own separate line at Mercury, and so this is the first-ever Monterey convertible. These really had a terrific look to them with the grille and the bumper are part of an integral design. And you see the same in the rear where the ends of the bumper design expand to merge with the hint of tailfin. And even the brightwork details are great, like the headlights that look frenched from the factory, hood ornament merged with a hood scoop, and factory wheel covers with bright red rings drawing attention to the Mercury logo center. And why can you see all of this so vividly? Because a newer application of glossy maroon provides the perfect canvas to showcase all these details. And more than just a great total presentation, these are rare. As an expensive premium droptop, Mercury produced less than 5,300 examples in 1952. And how many do you think survived to look this good 65+ years later?
The newer tan roof is a great coordinating color against the maroon pant. But with the flip of a switch, it gets even better. The power folding roof comes down to reveal more maroon now joined by a slick black. In fact, the way the maroon accents of the interior match the exterior will always fill you with pride when you park this Mercury. Plus, it has some cool premium features, including the intricate leavers for heat/defrost and other controls. They flank the speedometer for a true 1950s jet age style presentation. But as you spot the auxiliary gauge trio under the dash, you'll soon realize that what's under the hood comes from the muscle car era.
The big blue block in the engine bay is the unmistakable sign of later Ford power. This is a 351 cubic-inch Windsor V8. And this legendary powerplant even inhales deeply through an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with added authority thanks to a glasspack style dual exhaust. But even with the added power, this Mercury never loses its easy-cruising nature. That's why you have a three-speed automatic transmission and a supple ride.
Unique, upgraded, beautiful, and rare, if you like to stand out in all the best ways, this Mercury Monterey convertible does it all for quite a nice price. Don't miss out, call today!
