Description for Mercury Eight 1951

Under the hood is exactly what you want to see - Flathead V8 power. Mercuries were popular, because these 225 cubic-inch motors had extra displacement and extra torque over what was available at Ford during the time. And this legendary powerhouse not only looks authentic - right down to the oil bath air cleaner and bright blue block - but we also suspect it's original to the car. This has been given the right servicing, including adding an electric choke and electric fan. That means this classic fires-up readily and knows how to stay cool in traffic - exactly what you want in a cruising classic. This makes a nice sound out of the glasspack dual exhaust, and you have the added control of the classic column-shifted three-speed manual transmission. Plus, no '50s experience would be complete without whitewall tires.
