After World War II, any manufacturers were reestablishing their identity, nd Ford was not different with the decision to combine their mid-luxury line Mercury and upscale Lincoln brands becoming one division in 1945. The Mercury marque went from a sophisticated and well-appointed Ford, o a market sensation by 1949 distinctly separating itself from Ford and Lincoln. Fast forward to 1954 and you will see the first year introduction of the Overhead Valve V8 replacing the flathead forever. That same year, ercury rolled out a special Hardtop model in their upscale Monterey body called the Sun Valley. It featured a unique Plexiglas roof and attractive body trim, ith a host of available options making it the most expensive model they offered next to the convertible. Only 9,761 were produced, nd finding one in this condition presents a wonderful opportunity to Mercury collectors everywhere!

We are proud to offer this gorgeous 1954 Mercury Monterey Sun Valley 2-door Hardtop finished in factory code correct Bloomfield Green & Parkland Green two tone exterior over green & white vinyl interior! Fitted with its original 256ci OHV V8 offering the driver 161 horsepower mated to the 3-speed Merc-O-Matic automatic transmission. Additional factory options include power steering, ower drum brakes, ear fender skirts, ront & rear bumper guards, ull chrome wheel covers, ide whitewall tires, lock, eater/defrost, hrome exhaust tip, inted window glass, M radio with rear seat speaker, nd the famous glass roof insert!

Coming from a very well maintained collection, his very original and well preserved example has benefited from a thorough and accurate restoration. The overall finish remains in great condition, ith chrome and stainless in excellent condition. It shows no signed of abuse or neglect, ith minimal signs of age everywhere you look. Today, he odometer reads just 77,518 miles which we believe to be accurate from new. The window glass and roof top Plexiglas remain brilliantly clear and few of commonly found scratches.

The same can be said for the engine bay presentation and trunk compartment with correct, actory appointments like it was just on the showroom just a few years ago.
