1948 Mercury Pickup Truck (rare)

I'm listing this highly restored rare 'mercury pickup truck as a courtesy to its senior owner that has a full frame up restoration to it. He's and ready to "pass the torch" of rare truck ownership. For those who may not be aware, mercury pickup trucks were only offered in canada in limited numbers and a select few have made it to the states. This truck is highly restored, currently at his nd home in nashville, tn area. You will not likely see one quite like this anytime soon. Truck cannot be reproduced to this level for the asking price. Exterior: factory correct bright red. Paint is of show quality, well done, and "deep" stage base/clear. No signs of rust or collision, but there are a few "pinholes" evident on bottoms of both door shells over time (but nothing apparent on the outside). All the trim is present and in great condition. Re-chromed bumper(s) etc. Panel fitment is good (no door sag etc.) glass is good. Wood in bed floor is in great shape. Trailer hitch added, but never used in his ownership. Interior: correct brown vinyl bench seat with tan carpet. Seats are in exceptional condition as is the headliner. All instruments work and accessory gauges added for those who want them, but can be removed for the purists. No unusual odors etc. Very nicely done. Original storage tray located under the front seat (see photos). Mechanical: odometer shows a correct k miles. He is not sure if engine was rebuilt by prior owner, but says it runs so well-------starts easily every time, he assumes it was rebuilt. Trans shifts effortlessly thru all gears and is unremarkable. Wheels/tires in good shape. Drives straight. No pulling during braking etc. Undercarriage: clean/original/restored. Please see photos. Owner indicates his truck is often requested for photo-shoots, and christmas displays etc. He is often followed into gas stations etc. For photo opp's so this isn't for any shy personality types. This truck will more than reward its owner for all the joy it will bring. Priced at $,obo please. No trades. Located in tn (not ca)---------you can fly in and drive home if desired. I'm not sure i'll have this owners truck for sale very long. Please call chris for inspection/purchase ****got an old car or truck you'd like to sell? Send me a message and i can help you get it sold. Thanks in advance.
