Description

Lot #657 - This example is beautifully finished in Sun Glitter Yellow with a matching yellow and black leather interior, richly detailed with brushed metal dash panels and push-button selectors. It now shows 61,000 actual miles. The engine was the larger 368ci version of the Y-block Lincoln engine which was rated at 290hp that year. It, in turn, was backed by a Merc-O-Matic 3-speed transmission that used a push-button gear selector. Other items included are the Seat-O-Matic memory power seat, the Lube-O-Matic push-button system, Town & Country signal-seeking radio, two-tone interior, factory-installed tachometer with scarce availability and low surviving numbers. This Mercury convertible Turnpike cruiser offers a true opportunity to own a classic example from Detroit's "Big Road Car" era of the late 1950s. **TITLE IN TRANSIT**
