1941 Mercury Coupe: The 1941 Mercury Eight got all-new styling and some engineering improvements. The Mercury now shared its bodyshell with Ford, probably to lower Mercury production costs. Mercury’s wheelbase was expanded by 2.0 inches to 118.0 inches. There were many chassis refinements, including improved spring lengths, rates, and deflections, plus changes in shackling, shocks, and an improved stabilizer bar, but the old fashioned transverse springs were still used. The new body featured door bottoms that flared out over the running boards, allowing for wider seats and interiors. The car had 2.0 inches more headroom, two-piece front fenders (three-piece at first), and more glass area. The front pillars were made slimmer and the windshield was widened, deepened, and angled more steeply. Parking lights were separate and set atop the fenders for greater visibility. Headlight bezels were redesigned. In all closed Mercurys the rear-quarter windows opened out. Front vent wings were now crank-operated, and in closed cars the ventilation wing support bars rolled down with the windows.
Features and options on this beautiful classic include; Flathead V8, Ford 9″ Rear End, Factory A/C, Chrome Bumpers, Chrome Mirrors, Tinted Windows, 15″ Factory Wheels, and Good Whitewall Tires. This Mercury has been recently serviced, runs strong, and the a/c blows cold. Being part of a small collection of classics, the owner has always been able to store this vehicle indoors and it is in very solid and rust free condition. If a very clean and fairly-priced early Mercury is missing from your collection, this is the car for you!
