The second generation Mercury Eight was first introduced in 1941 with bodyshell shared with the '41 Ford and flathead V8 power. The design was frozen during the war and emerged back in 1946 with a revised grille, but the same reputation for being fast and fun.

This Mercury Eight was given a frame-off restoration around the year 2000, but the paint is showing some age and the interior needs some reconditioning. However, it doesn't look like a bad for the asking price and (according to the seller) it drives, goes, and stops like a '46 Mercury should.
