Chassis #: 51SL6298M
Sold for $77,000 at 2014 Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction.
Mercury introduced the new Eight in 1949, after the company had been in business for just a decade. It was the company's first post-WWII design, and it was a departure from the styling that preceded it, with a body that had even more bulbous curves, a rounded off rear end, and a toothy chrome grille that stretched across the entire front end of the car. Under the hood was a 255 cubic-inch Ford flathead V-8 that offered 112 bhp and 200 lb-ft of torque.

This Mercury Eight was restored and customized in the 1990s and later purchased by Joe Cardiello of Long Island, New York. The current owner acquired the car in the mid-2000s. It has light-metallic maroon paint, chrome accents, power front disc brakes, air conditioning, and an interior that features in dark red hides and vinyl.
