Up for sale is my 1954 Mercury Monterey that I ran. and finished in the LaCarrera Panamericana in Mexico. a 2. 00 mile road race.

Car is still race legal with a few updates like seatbelt harnesses. tires.  

Mechanically. car has a 1988 Ford 302 High Output engine that has about 5. 00 miles since being rebuilt after the race.   A T-5  5 speed manual transmission that has about 10. 00 miles since new in crate. Rack and pinion steering. 4 wheel disc brakes. and 1 1/4" front sway bar.   Koni Oval Track Adjustable Racing shocks all around.

Roll cage is a 8-point; with 4 inside the cab. a bar across the windshield. two bars going to the front frame rails. and two to the rear rails.   Five point seatbelt harnesses. built-in Halon Fire System.

Speedo needs replaced. I would use a GPS model. Currently has one 26-gallon fuel cell. we ran two dells and two pumps during the race in case of problems; we switched over twice do to running out of fuel before the designated fuel stops. you don't get very good mileage when you're racing!

Car has been in storage and used for going to car shows since being raced.   I hate to see it just sit when I am sure there are people out there that have the same dream of road racing like I had.   It's time for a new keeper that will put it to good use.

The car is located in Florida. near Tampa in storage.   I will help with storage or shipping as needed.

I will answer any questions as soon as possible.

For more info on the race. check their site:  http://www. lacarrerapanamericana. com. mx/#translate-en

Thanks for looking!
