Do you still have this car? My mom is 82 years old has one and is the original owner. Two tires keep going flat and apparently the rims are bad. I called Dayton Wire Wheels and they said they could re-chrome them. Do you know if the decorative covers have real rims and could be switched out? We are also debating whether or not it would be better to buy 6 new rims instead so they all match. Thanking you in advance for your time.

           1988 MERCURY WITH FACTORY TIFFANY COACHWORK BY CMC  CLASSIC MOTOR CARRIAGES ( ONE OF 159 FROM 1984 - 1988 ).       SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES INCLUDESIDE MOUNT TIRE WIDE ANGLE MIRRORS . USTOM WIRE WHEELS WITH SPINNERS . WIDE WHITE WALL TIRES . OPERA WINDOW AND SPECIAL WINDOW TINTING PACKAGE . CUSTOM FRONT PLATE . WOOD GRAIN STEREO SYSTEM . WOOD GRAIN FRONT CARPETS . OPERA WINDOWS . WINDOW AWNINGS . FRONT WINDOW BROW TINTING . CHROME EXHAUST EXTENSIONS .   I AM THE SECOND OWNER AND HAVE HAD THIS  ORIGINAL MASTERPIECE FOR NEARLY 13 YEARS . IT IS ALWAYS THE MOST POPULAR CAR AT ANY EVENT . ADMIRED WHEN DRIVEN OR DISPLAYED AT AUTOMOTIVE EVENTS SUCH AS THE RECENT FLEETWOOD CAR SHOW IN HISTORIC FLEETWOOD PENNSYLVANIA AND DURYEA DAY . THE CAR IS SHOCKING AND CAUSES A STIR ANYWHERE DRIVEN AND HAS MADE ME MANY OF NEW FRIENDS . THIS AUTOMOBILE HAS TALL COKER WIDE WHITE WALL TIRES . TIRES HAVE LOW MILES ON THEM .  THE CAR IS LIKELY THE BEST DOCUMENTED TIFFANY IN EXISTENCE WITH ALL MANUALS . DRIVER MANUAL . SALES BROCHURES . THERE IS A  UNUSED SPARE TIRE MOUNTED ON A WIRE WHEEL IN TRUNK  .  INCLUDED ARE TOOLS IN OLD COLLECTIBLE TOOL KIT WITH SPARE HEADLIGHT . AND OTHER SPARE PARTS .  . IN THE TRUNK IS A CAR SHOW DISPLAY BOARD OF ABOUT 4 FEET TALL BY 2 FEET WIDE WITH IMPORTANT HISTORICAL INFO AND SALES BROCHURES . THERE ARE 2 CUSTOM TIFFANY KEY FOBS AND 2 KEYS . THE CAR HAS A DIGITAL DASH  PLUS 4 EXTERNAL CHROME GATSBY ERA HORNS AND TWO HIDDEN TRUMPET HORNS IN ENGINE AND DIGITAL ENTRY SYSTEM . THERE ARE 8 EXTRA BERBER FLOOR MATS IN THE TRUNK .  THIS IS A COACHMAKER'S MASTERPIECE AND MANY NOVICES THINK AT FIRST IT IS A DUSENBERG . EXCALIBUR . ROLLS ROYCE . PIERCE ARROW . PACKARD OR ZIMMER . UNTIL THEY READ THE NAME PLATES . ALSO THEY ARE SHOCKED BY THE SHEAR IMMENSE SIZE OF THE 19 FOOT  VEHICLE .  A DETROIT RESIDENT WAS FIRST OWNER  AND  THE NEW MERCURY WAS THEN SENT TO MIAMI FOR THE TIFFANY COACHWORK BY MR. LEVENS' MAIMI BASED COMPANY . I HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING HIS DELIGHTFUL NEPHEW WHO SPOTTED MY CAR ONE DAY . AFTER PURCHASING THIS VEHICLE I INVESTED TO REPLACE OLDER PARTS WITH NEW LINCOLN/MERCURY PARTS .      IN 1984 YOU COULD BUY A BASIC 6 CYLINDER WITH CLOTH OR VELOUR INTERIOR FOR $30. 00 . IN 1988 . I SAW MY FIRST ( CUSTOM MOTOR COACH ) TIFFANY AT THE PHILADELPHIA AUTO SHOW . I INSTANTLY LOVED IT BUT THOUGHT THE $60. 00 WAS WAY OUT OF MY REACH AND NEVER THOUGHT OF OWNING ONE UNTIL 2001 WHEN I COULD AFFORD ONE . THE 1988 SPECIAL EDITIONS THEN COST IN THE $60. 00 RANGE FOR A V8 AND LEATHER INTERIOR . THAT WAS TWICE THE PRICE OF A 1988 CADILLAC . THIS AUTOMOBILE IS MARVELOUS OVERALL . NEW BATTERY  . ORIGINAL CLEAR COAT PAINT  .  OVERALL THE VEHICLE IS OUTSTANDING AND WITH MANY FACTORY NOS AND MERCURY PARTS . SOME EXAMPLES : NEW HEATER CORE . WATER PUMP . COKER TIRES . ALTERNATOR . BOSCH PLATINUM PLUGS AND SPARK PLUG WIRES . OIL CHANGED EVERY 500 MILES AND ANTIFREEZE JUST REPLACED . INSURANCE COST ME $87 FOR FULL COVERAGE ANTIQUE INSURANCE FOR 6 MONTHS . I DRIVE THE VEHICLE ONLY A FEW HUNDRED MILES PER YEAR .  .  PLEASE READ THIS EBAY FEEDBACK FROM A NICE COUPLE IN ST. LOUIS WHO BOUGHT A 1958 BENZ FROM ME : THE CAR WAS WONDERFUL. ! GREAT TO WORK WITH DONALSO FROM A COLLECTOR IN CALIFORNIA WHO BOUGHT A 1960 MORRIS MINOR . PLEASE READ THEIR NICE COMMENT : Seller was exceptional: helpful. friendly. honest - went above and beyond . THAT IS THE WAY 1900_DREAMCARS OPERATES . IF FOR ANY REASON YOU ARE NOT HAPPY RETURN THE CAR IN 7 DAYSAND I WILL REFUND THE CAR PRICE . I SUGGEST . YOU COME LOOK AT THE CAR FIRST SINCE RETURNING A CAR FROM LONG DISTANCE CAN BE A BIG EXPENSE FOR YOU . 1900_DREAMCARS DOES NOT REFUND SHIPPING CHARGES PAID BY CUSTOMERS TO SHIPPERS . THAT IS BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR PREFERRED SHIPPER .  I PERSONALLY BOUGHT AN UNSEEN CAR FROM BOBS CLASSICS IN TAMPA AND I WAS DELIGHTED WITH THE CAR BUT I HAD FOLLOWED HIM FOR YEARS AND KNEW HE WAS RELIABLE . BUT IF YOU HAVE THE TIME . COME SEE THE CAR AND I WILL TAKE YOU OUT FOR A DINNER / TOUR OF A FAMED LANCASTER AMISH AREA 'S RESTAURANT .  THANKS  
P. S. THINK ABOUT THIS : AVERAGE YEARLY MILES OVER 26 YEARS IS ABOUT 3246 PER YEAR BUT THAT WAS IN GREAT PART PUT ON BY THE ORIGINAL OWNER IN DETROIT AND FLORIDA .                         I BABIED IT THE LAST 12 YEARS AT A FEW HUNDRED MILES PER YEAR . WELL MEANING DEALERS SOMETIMES SELL SIMILAR TIFFANYS . EXCALIBURS AND ZIMMERS AS SHOWING 20. 00 MILES BUT IN REALITY THOSE CARS OFTEN HAD 120. 00 TRUE MILES BUT FIRST DIGIT AT TURNOVER DID NOT SHOW ON OLDER CARS SO FOR THEM IT WAS A GOOD TIME TO SELL . MILEAGE APPEARED LOW BUT SOMETIMES IS BOGUS  . HOWEVER . THIS TIFFANY HERE BEING OFFERED HAS NORMAL TRUE ORIGINAL MILES LISTED AND NEVER REACHED THE 100. 00 MILE TURN OVER . OF COURSE . I HAVE A NEIGHBOR WITH A COLLECTION OF CARS AND HIS 1959 CADILLAC CONVERTIBLE HAS ABOUT 200. 00 MILES BUT IT IS IN MINT CONDITION AND EVERYONE STILL WANTS TO BUY IT AT ANY PRICE BUT HE IS A DRIVER NOT A SELLER . WELL MAINTAINED MILES AND ABUSED MILES ARE TWO DIFFERENT POINTS TO CONSIDER . HERE IS SOMETHING FUNNY TO SHARE WITH YOU ABOUT THIS CAR . 3 CUTE THINGS PEOPLE SAID THAT STUCK IN MY BRAIN . ONE LADY SAID " THAT CAR RULES "   . ANOTHER SAID " THAT IS THE DEFINITION OF A CAR "  . I YOUNG BUSINESS MAN WHEN I PULLED UP TO A BANK AND HE WAS GETTING IN HIS NEW CADILLAC SAID " YOU ONE UPED ME " .   YES . THIS IS SOME AUTOMOBILE AND I THANK GODI PURSUED BUYING ONE . IT HAS BEEN QUITE A RIDE OVER THE YEARS . NEVER A DULL MOMENT DRIVING THIS BLAST FROM THE PAST . THANKS AGAIN .
