The 1954 Mercury sedan was slightly massaged version of the Mercury introduced in 1952, which isn't a bad thing at all because the Mercury is a sweet looking classic with an overhead valve Ford Y-block V8 up front. Find this 1954 Mercury Sedan offered for $8,999 in Eastern CT via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
The seller lists this thing as a Mercury Mariner, but I don't think Mercury made a Mariner in fifty four...but I've been wrong before and am certainly no expert on '54 Mercs. REGARDLESS, I can say that getting a good running/driving/looking classic piece of American 50's iron for less than $10k is indeed an oddity. A good oddity.
