The Mercury Eight was the first model to ever be produced by the Ford Motor Company’s Mercury marque. Production for the Mercury Eight ran for 12 years, beginning in 1939 and discontinuing in 1951.

From 1941 to 1948 the Mercury Eight underwent several changes including styling and engineering improvements. There were many chassis refinements and the new body allowed for wider seats and interiors. The Mercury Eight was offered in 5 different styles: 2-Door Coupe, 2-Door Convertible, 4-Door Sedan, 4-Door Station Wagon and 2-Door Sportsman Convertible.

Finished in Garnet red with a supple crème interior, this Mercury Eight Convertible is truly a sight to behold. The car features a matching Garnet red convertible top boot, black running boards and contrasting red pin-striping. Additionally, this Mercury has a split windshield and resplendent woodgrain window trim. The car does start, but has not been recently drive and may require some mechanical “freshening”.

Other notable features include:

  • Manual transmission with floor-mounted shifter
  • Horizontal chrome grill
  • Chrome bumpers with bumper guards
  • Painted steel wheels
  • Chromed center caps
  • Wide whitewall tires
  • Windshield-mounted antenna
  • Driver side chrome mirror
  • Heater & defroster
  • Glove-box mounted clock
