The Mercury Eight had existed for a short time as a model before production ended due to WWII. That short time however was long enough to establish the Mercury as a highly desirable car. One of the qualities that made it so popular was the flathead V8 engine under the hood and this spectacular sedan coupe model still has that proven engine. Not hot rodded as so many were, this one has been lovingly cared for during its existence. This wonderful example has been very nicely restored and one only needs to open the door and examine the meticulous interior to confirm the level of quality. The quality doesn’t stop there as a road-test will reveal that the car has been dialed-in mechanically as well resulting in an excellent all-around honest example that can be enjoyed for years to follow.
