Default 1968 Merc Monterey convt.

Hey everyone,
I'm new to this forum. I have a 1968 Mercury Monterey convertible I think I might want to sell. It has 85,000 original miles. The car is 100% stock original. The car was built in St. Louis,MO. It has a V-8, 390 CID Engine with a 2-barrel carburetor. The top works along with everything else on the car. It runs and drives like its new. The car is an off white with a white interior. It even has a factory hub caps and a never used original spare in the trunk. One and a while you have to giggle the shifter because the neutral safety switch is going out. Otherwise the car is 100% mechanical sound. If you need any other info let me know. The car is located in SW michigan.
Thanks
Kevin

wow... if you can post pics I know that will definitely draw more attention. If you were in the dallas, tx area, I might consider getting rid of my ride to by yours.

nice ride. looks like it needs a little tlc, but not much for a 51 year old car. would be an excellent base for an original restoration on a budget.

I really don't want to get rid of it. But I really would like a down payment on a house. And I have enough cars and toys as it is.... Its a sweet ride for sure. Originally I bought it and had intentions of putting it on air ride. It was to nice of a car though so I felt a little bad and never went threw with it..
