Would you like to know in how to hire a direct carrier?

Featured on AutoHunter, the online platform driven by, is this 1953 Mercury Monterey coupe. This awesome period correct, hot rodded Mercury is powered by a 255cid flathead V8 backed by a Merc-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission, and the engine has some great mods including aluminum Offenhauser heads, an Edelbrock dual-carburetor intake manifold, chrome air cleaners, an external oil filter, and headers. Recent service includes the replacement of both water pumps, the installation of a 12-volt alternator and an electric fuel pump. Those mods ought to give it a bit more power than stock, and my only addition would be to ditch the whitewalls for some black walls but that is more about my taste than anything the car really needs.
