180 - 1941 Mercury 2-Door Sedan

From the seller: 1941 The way I understand it Frank Dixon of Dixon Ford in Belmont, NC talked E.D. Craig of Craig Motor Co to take on Mercury. Jack Wilcox who was a mechanic at Craig Motors ordered this car. He unloaded it off of the rail car himself.

The car was parked in 1962 in a single car brick garage behind his house. He kept it cranked and moved it around. In 1993 a house beside his house that was used for storage caught on fire. Embers from that fire landed on the garage. It set the roof on fire. The fire dept. got it put out quickly. the Mercury had had one repaint in the late 50’s I’d say. The fire blistered the paint on the roof and cracked one glass in it.

Harold Russell, my late father,  had a perfect 8N Ford tractor. Jack wanted something done with the car so my Dad traded him the 8N for the Merc. It was stripped and painted with base coat clearcoat tin the original color of Mayfair Maroon. There was no rust at all in the car. It had seat covers on it that were taken off. What needed to be done to get it running was done to it. The heads have never been off of the car.

In the past 6 months I have done this to the car: New Bob Drake gas tank. New sending unit. Rebuilt original carb. The small copper line off of it is where the South Wind heater pulls gas from it, New Eckler high flow water pumps, New thermostats, New top hoses, New riveted brake shoes, hydraulics, New plugs, and NOS coil. The car runs and drives great. 

Original documents include copy of the original NC title from 1941, original bill-of-sale, original finance contract, original owner’s manual and warranty papers, gas rationing stamps from WWI era for this car, radio, clock, and jack manuals, AND annual registration cards going back to 1941. 

Wow!  You just can’t find them like this…


That is a copy of the original title from 1941
