1966 Mercury S55

Mercury S55. This ultra rare 1966 Mercury S55 is quite possibly the cleanest, lowest mileage and most well preserved S/55 on the planet. With only 6794 actual miles, the S/55 is best remembered as the "Gentleman's Muscle Car", and it is unlikely you have ever driven a car such as this. Powered by the special high performance Super Marauder 428 V/8, this car is a rocket, yet it retains all the comfort and ride of a mid '60's era luxury automobile. Original elderly owned southern car and pampered since day one. I am the third owner. Car has the original shiny paint and still sports the fine lined hand painted body pinstripe unique only to the S/55 models. Solid and straight rust free body. A few small paint chips but nothing at all objectionable. New radial tires just installed. (the red line bias ply spare looks to be original) Brakes, wheel cyl's., brake hoses, replaced and wheel bearings greased less than 300 miles ago. Completely serviced, inspected and ready to drive anywhere. New battery and dual exhaust system as well. All the rubber items are soft and pliable with no signs of deterioration. The interior is spectacular. Bucket seats, "Multi-Drive Merc O Matic" transmission with floor mounted console shifter. Carpet, door panels, headliner, padded dash and sill plates look absolutely brand new. No signs of wear or age problems. Engine starts instantly and sounds fantastic with a deep muscular tone at the exhaust pipes. Power h/d brakes, power steering and no a/c. Factory seat belts, remote mirror, courtesy lights, clock, and original floor mats. Car has a dealer installed radio reverberator with factory front and single rear speaker. Everything mechanical and electrical working just as it did 52 years ago. However the clock recently quit working. If you are looking for a rare piece of unaltered history this is it. It is incredible just how well preserved this car is. Additionally, car comes with a service manual, owners guide, original window sticker and build sheet.
