1953 Merc? in General Discussion Posted November 13, 2018 Hello guys, So here's some more details for you all. This car is located on the Maine Craigslist. 1953 Mercury Monterey 4 door, dark green. $5800. I spoke with the seller on the phone, very nice. Next morning asked about a time and he was very rude... So decided not to waste my time with someone like that... (Of course he was nice again when I said I will pass) Said the car needs shocks, tires, carb rebuild, tune up, etc. 35 year old repaint in okay condition. Looks like a nice car if any of you want a good looking cheap driver in Maine. Also appears to have some weird body work on the rear fender. Rough rounded edges where the fender skirt goes plus some interesting looking paint. Not sure what's going on with it. Might be nothing. Thank you everyone for your help.
