Description

Mercury's most opulent luxury car produced between 1962 and 1966. This car was import from the east coast of the United States until spring 2020, when it was purchased by a car collector in northern Värmland. The car is in as good a condition as it appears in the photos, and it runs and drives. A small amount of surface rust is discovered beneath the boot mat, which is dry and nice underneath but requires rust protection treatment to avoid deterioration in this damper climate. See the movies for an electric cab that works perfectly. Call the owner directly for more information and a viewing: +46 (0)703 438578, Anders.

Facts about the model

Från Wikipedia:
The Mercury S-55 is a full-size car that was marketed by the Mercury division of the Ford Motor Company during the 1960s. Developed as a performance-oriented version of the Mercury Monterey, the S-55 was the largest vehicle of the Mercury "S" (Special) range introduced in 1962; its Ford equivalent was the Ford Galaxie 500XL.
As consumer buying habits in full-size sedans shifted in the late 1960s, performance-oriented vehicles such as the S-55 fell out of favor, with personal luxury coupes and muscle cars taking its place. After the 1967 model year, the S-55 was discontinued; its role was largely taken over by the 1969 Mercury Marauder, produced until 1970.

  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
