1948 Mercury Eight Coupe old school hot rod. This is a driver that looks like a show car. If this doesn't take you back to the 50's nothing will. When was the last time you saw one of these on the road. Stored inside year round. Same owner for 30 plus years .

Updated Mercury 239 FLATHEAD V8 engine and 3 SPEED manual transmission with shifter on the column.
