1940 Mercury Eight Convertible Sedan

As classic cars go, the 1940 Mercury Eight Convertible Sedan, is a pretty rare beast. Not many were made, and few of those have survived. This particular Merc, while it looks like a bone stock restoration, is a real wolf in sheeps clothing. It may look like a sedate touring sedan, and you'd be right, except this sedan can get it done with the tires smokin' at speeds that would turn the landscape into a blur.

The Vintique Wheels sporting Coker Wide White really set off the PPG "Marathon Blue" paint job with 4 coats of 20/21 clear. Even the overcast look like blue sky and sunshine in its refelction.

Under that streamlined hood lies a 351 Windsor motor stroked out to 427 cubic inches.
