1954 MERCURY MONTEREY CONVERTIBLE TECHNICAL INFORMATION This Mercury Monterey Convertible found it's way to me from the Ramshead Collection Museum located in Sacramento, California. A few years back it was the Ramshead Collection car of the month. After a complete mechanical rebuild and an original repaint and re-chrome of all the trim, this car was displayed in the Ramshead Museum. The California "Black Plate" remains on the car. I was unable to trace the plate back to the original owner but it appears that we were the second private owner of the car. It came to us in beautiful condition with not a trace of rust or previous damage history. A true Museum Piece of Automotive history.
It came with the original 256 CI. Y block 161 hp engine which was replaced with a new 1957 Ford Thunderbird engine increasing hp,, verified by dyno, measured 73% increaseat 278.5 hp. Dyno graphs available for inspection. See several photos of the dynamometer process in the photo selection. The mellow exhaust system has new exhaust headers treated with silver ceramic coating that will remain beautiful for the life of the car.
  • The 1954 Mercury Monterey was the first Mercury to introduce the Y Block configuration overhead valve engine and the three speed "Mercomatic Transmission." This Mercury Monterey Convertible is a very rare American Classic; only 7293 examples were produced and this is the 2880th car built in Los Angeles. An original push button radio, a working heater and defroster/ventilator controlled by air craft style levers. The interior of this car is all original excepting the interior carpeting which was replaced by new Red German velour carpet and sound deadening pad.
  • We added Mustang II type front suspension; Viking Performance coil over adjustable shocks,and front disc brakes. Also replaced rear brakes and shocks. All power equipment enjoyed getting new motors. Power equipment includes:
  • Power windows,
  • Power steering,
  • Power brakes,
  • Power seats
  • Power top
  • Pertronix Electronic ignition system with Flame Thrower Coil. We wired 6 Optima 6v batteries in parallel to produce 6.5v and lots of amps for starting power.
  • New Diamond Back Radial wide white wall tires were added less than 100 miles ago:
  • Rear 235/75R/15
  • Front 215/75R/15
  • New large BeCool aluminum radiator
See much more tech info at www.hmn.com/2249611 This car drives as if it were on rails. It drives and stops straight and smooth. Never in snow & no smoking. It can be used as a trophy grabbing show car or abitchin well performing every day driver. Age of owner (86) and a long list of infirmities forces reluctant sale. I have over $100K invested in this restoration using only the finest items I could buy. If you as a buyer, do not, see the value in this car at $65K, then forget about this car. If not happily sold, then it goes back into storage for one of my eager Grandsons. It's not going to go below $65,000
