If you have been looking for the rarest of all Mercury vehicles, It now has come up for sale. 1939 is the first year of Mercury. It was created by Edsel Ford, son of Henry Ford, to market entry-level-luxury cars slotted between Ford-branded regular models and Lincoln-branded luxury vehicles.
There were a very limited number of Club Coupe Convertibles produced. The current owner purchased this car locally from a gentleman who bought it from Disneyland who had the vehicle on display at the Queen Mary and in numerous parades. This is a gorgeous car in impeccable shape. The flathead 8 is quiet as ever and the car runs and drives like a champ. This car is a reliable, fully functional and drivable vehicle that is in well-above average condition. The body is near flawless and the leather interior is stunning. This car is located in Northern California wine country.
The engine is a pure Ford flathead V-8, bored out from the flathead's original 221 cubic inches to 239.4 to develop an additional 10 horsepower. The body on this vehicle is virtually flawless. I located only two chips, one on the rear left fender, another on the front left fender, each about the size of the head of a pin. There are no apparent signs of bondo and no signs of rust either.
