Green door panels in smooth vinyl are bedecked with chrome trim spears, a horizontal stitch line and a vinyl and cloth armrest. Above this vinyl is a herringbone pattern green and gray cloth section and below is a low pile carpet section in gray. Spattered within the door panels are very nice chromed cranks with cream bakelite bezels and knobs. Seen on top of the door is a lightly worn and chipped steel panel. Moving inside sitting in a sea of nicely preserved gray carpet with a rubber and cloth mat added for protection. More green and gray herringbone broadcloth covers the seating surfaces, and green smooth vinyl bolstered split back bench that stretches from door to door. Upfront is a beautiful art deco design dash, with more exterior matching Taffy Tan steel and in the center, a silverish tan panel which houses the speedometer and a clock, as well as the radio and speaker. To the left of the speedometer is a horizontal band of aluminum which has rectangular metering gauges. On the right is a Mercury badged glovebox. Several cream bakelite knobs protrude from the bottom of the dash, as does a tan steering column, and massive bakelite wheel. Noted is a rear bench in matching style of the front seat. Also, the trunk has been fully restored.
Smack dab in the middle of a patinaed but restored engine bay is a 239ci V8 bathed in dark blue with a single 2-barrel carburetor protected by an oil bath air cleaner. A 3-speed manual transmission is on back and throws power rearward to 3.78 rear gears. We note that the car has been converted to a 12-volt electrical system with a voltage reducer installed to operate the factory gauges.
