Car description

The time has come for my family to sell my late Father's original48 Mercury Convertible. 48 Mercury Block has ARDUN OHV conversion installed when built by my late Father and Late Grandfather in 1970-71.Car has always been stored in our families pole barn. It has won James Dean Top 20 Mercury on many occasions, as well as other awards.


Engine - Original Ardun in good running condition. It does smoke, but from what I understand, that is how the Judson Supercharger is designed. Holds great oil pressure. Marvel Mystery Oiler on the firewall used to oil the supercharger.
Paint - The car was last pained around 1981. As such, the body has some paint chips. Overall in very good shape for 36 year old paint job.

Interior & Other - In good shape. Rubber matt on floor has some damage. Convertible top has a single small hole. Does need brake work (new pads, rebuilt brake assembly, etc) and new tires to be streetable.

Body - I know of no patch panels on this car. It is 'All Henry' steel.
