1951 Mercury Sport  Sedan

1951 Mercury Sport Sedan


Engine: 255 CID Flathead V8
Transmission: 3-Speed Manual
Mileage: 83,036 ( actual )

Gateway Classic Cars Philadelphia is proud to offer this classic 1951 Mercury Sport Sedan. Check out this rare original Classic! Those who really enjoy these cars--and they're as iconic as anything that emerged from the industry's immediate postwar reawakening--think that of the redesigned Mercury models, 1949 thru 1951, those from 1951 are the best of the trio. Instead of having a somewhat incongruously rounded rump, the 1951 Mercury gained new vertical taillamps, replacing the erstwhile wraparound horizontal units, and regally elevated rear sheet metal to match. The buyers liked it. Few may realize it today, but among the historic three-year run of Mercury that commenced in 1949, the final cars from 1951 held the sales lead. This 1951 Mercury with suicide doors and the original Flathead V8 with three speeds on the column is a prime example. This Mercury is Green with Green vinyl interior. The body and paint look great. We are not sure how old the paint job is, but it has been updated and looks great. The interior is near perfect and the chrome trim is in excellent condition. This Classic is equipped with skirts, white wall tires, radio, heater and more. The electrical system has been upgraded from 6 volt to 12 volt. Check out the chrome grille on this car it is awesome. The Mercury is one of the most popular sedans with Hot Rodders, it’s styling is iconic. To view this 1951 Mercury Sport Sedan in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video, visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com or our Philadelphia showroom located in West Deptford, NJ.

1964 Mercury Comet

1964 Mercury Comet


Engine: 302 V8
Transmission: 5 Speed Manual
Mileage: 67,478 ( since rebuilt )

For sale in our Tampa showroom is this awesome 1964 Mercury Comet. This beast is powered by a Ford 302 V8 Engine that includes a holly carb, MSD ignition and ford racing valve covers. It’s even got hood pins to keep the beast behind closed doors. Don’t be fooled by the 4-speed shift knob as this Comet has a 5-speed transmission that turns 3.08 posi traction gears. This Mercury is set up to handle great with a new front coil spring suspension. The white exterior is complemented greatly by the chrome Riddler wheels that really gleam in the sunlight. The interior is stitched up in an awesome black and burgundy combination that makes the inside as much of a head turner as the outside of the vehicle. Don’t worry about keeping cool as this Comet has a new vintage air system. The odometer is only showing 67,478 miles. This body style comet has a lot of history behind it starting in 1964 the Comet was redesigned with a much more square shape, though it was still built on the same unibody as the 1963 model. Its basic lines were shared with the new Falcon, but the front grille used styling similar to that of the Lincoln Continental. Along with the redesign, the model designations were changed. The performance version was known as the Cyclone, replacing the previous S-22. Then in descending order of trim levels were the Caliente, 404 and 202, replacing the previous Custom and base models. The 2-door station wagon body style was discontinued. The top-of-the-line station wagon continued to be known as the Villager. The base 144 cid six engine was dropped and the 170 cid six became the new base engine. The 260 V8 was available at the beginning of the production run, with the new 289 being available mid-year. Due to the success of the full size Ford and Mercury "fastback" roofline introduced in mid-1963, the Falcon and Comet 2-door hardtops got a similar roofline with sharper corners. These vehicles really helped pave the way for the muscle car era that was about to begin in the United States of America.
