Vehicle Description

This iconic Flathead-powered 1947 Mercury Eight Convertible is now available from MAXmotive’s Pittsburgh Showroom. It’s finished in an elegant gray with a plush burgundy leather interior. A forerunner in the custom and performance worlds, a smooth-running 239ci Flathead V8 is nestled under that massive hood. A neat option is the Columbia Overdrive 2-speed rear axle, which ably assists the 3-speed manual transmission to provide added performance and versatility. An authentic 1947 Mercury V-8 Operator’s Manual, collectible in itself, still has the instructions for the electric clock inside. A copy of the original Adjust-O-Matic Radio Owner’s Manual is included as well. The elegant theme carries over into the interior, with burgundy leather seating and a rich woodgrain dash. Wide whites, full chrome wheel covers, fender skirts, a chrome spotlight, and dual chrome “V8” exhaust tips all contribute to the classic magic of this Merc. The spacious trunk contains a spare tire and jack. As testimony to the ready-to-go status of this great car, there are seat belts in the front and back seats. And you may often be tempted to drive with the top up. The burgundy canvas top on this car is simply gorgeous. It’s power operated too. This 1947 Mercury Eight Convertible is a fine example, it’s an important part of American automotive history, and it’s all ready to drive and enjoy. See detailed photos at www.maxmotive.com.

*MAXmotive specializes in collectible classic and custom vehicles. We have more than 200 vehicles in our collection and have sold dozens nationwide and even overseas. We recommend that all buyers who are unable to view a vehicle in person have a pre-purchase inspection done prior to purchase. Inspections can be performed by an independent party selected by the buyer. Due to the age and uniqueness of these special vehicles, it is difficult to cover all aspects and characteristics of each vehicle’s condition within the limited space available. Thus, pre-purchase inspections are helpful to all parties involved. The information provided for this vehicle is presented to the best of our knowledge, and is deemed reliable. But MAXmotive does not warrant or guarantee this information as a basis for purchase. It is the responsibility of the buyer to make a thorough inspection to determine the suitability of the vehicle prior to purchase.
