West Coast Classics are proud to present this absolutely exceptional and stunning example of this virtually all stock and completely rust and accident free and very rare 1941 Mercury 09A 2 Door Convertible Coupe with it's reliable and virtually bullet-proof 239 L head V8 engine (a slightly larger version of Ford's 'V8/85' having the same stroke but larger bore with brake horsepower of 100 in '41) with a manual synchromesh 3 speed transmission!
Mercury quickly gained a reputation for performance appropriate to it's name (after the winged messenger God in Greek mythology) with well tuned models being quicker than the V8 Fords and capable of up to 100mph. Mercury bowed on a 116 inch wheelbase, four inches longer than the Ford's and sufficient to give its similar styling a more impressive and striking look. A dashboard with strip type instruments also like Ford's but with Mercury's innovative column mounted gearshift. Models expanded in '41, except for the sedan convertible which was dropped, and were restyled with a 2" longer wheelbase with higher fenders, a divider bar grille and fender top parking lights.
Recently acquired from a prominent collection, this particular car has been absolutely beautifully frame off restored with no expense spared and with extraordinary attention to detail and which is finished in a striking 'Cream' color with a striking 'Red' leather interior and a new convertible power soft top.
