A little history on the mercury meteor:The initial 1949 Meteor was introduced on June 25. 1948. at the same time the Ford Deluxe and Custom series were introduced across the United States. and shared the new postwar full-sized Ford bodies. chassis. and powertrains but with unique trim. It used a Mercury grille and was powered by a 100 bhp (75 kW). 239 CID flathead V8 similar to that used in the 1946-53 U. S. Ford passenger cars.
The mercury meteor is essentially the same as a ford custom convertible except that it has different trim. different grill. power top. a different steering wheel and a few more minor differences. That said they are very rare with only a few having came up for sale over the last couple of years. From what collectors I've spoken to have told me. there were only approximately 200 of these made in 1951. In restored condition. it's valued upwards of 60k. Complete car. The car runs drives and stops (you can drive it around the block but it will need work before its roadworthy. Much of the front end chrome has been rechromed but the bumpers will need to be done (or replaced with the ford bumpers which are identical). The car is rusty and will require trunk floor pan. quarter panel work or replacement. drivers side floor. The convertible top mechanism is complete with the hydraulic cylinders and hoses (the convertible top sells for over 3500$ alone). New gas tank. and brake lines were done a few years ago before it was stored. Many extra boxes with parts come with the car.
The car comes with a clean title and registration.
