Cars For Sale
I am selling a 1955 Montclair two- door coupe for my father-in-law, who has been in a nursing home for the last two years. Everything described is true to my knowledge. The car has a two-speed Merc-O-Matic automatic transmission, with the shifter on the column. I think it has a 1970’s era Ford engine – it’s not original. The engine easily starts, runs good and the car drives. Original upholstery with a one-inch tear repaired on the front passenger seat. The odometer reading is at 39,025 miles. The sheet metal, floor pans and frame are structurally solid. There is a small area on the passenger door that looks like the paint is bubbling a little, but I don’t see any other rust areas. Otherwise, the paint is OK with a couple of scratches. It looks like a new gas tank. New brakes and brake lines installed, as well as some other work in 2013. Asking $15,500, but would entertain other offers. Cell or text (715) 292-0504; e-mail bluegrassjunkie @gmail.com.
