1949 Mercury Woody 2-Door
Thanks for viewing this STUNNING and highly-desirable 1949 Mercury Woody 2-Door Wagon with just over 2,900 miles since restoration. This Woody is gorgeous! I drove it through downtown Asheville on Friday night and had amazing reactions to it! Everyone who sees this beauty, LOVES IT!

Restored to a very high standard with goodies you couldn't get in 49: power leather seats, a cd-changer, modern air conditioning, cool power windows that are controlled with vintage-looking hand-cranks & more.
This car was traded to me as part of a deal for a very expensive collector car. The previous owner had three Woodies and was beginning to replace them with other types of cars. Before it was shipped to me, it had sat for a several months, without being driven. After I received it, I took it for a test drive and found the steering to be sluggish and heavy. I also noticed a couple of other things, so I had it thoroughly checked out and proceeded to have any little bugs fixed. It also had a good tune-up.

In the last week, the mechanics have: fitted a brand new battery, changed the fluids, replaced the serpentine belt, removed and replaced scratched exhaust tips, put in a new steering rack, put in a new power steering pump, added a battery tender with a regular ac plug and now she looks, runs and drives like a champ!

I thought the headlights were a little dim, so I had this diagnosed and ordered halogen lights. These came in today and will be installed before the Woody is delivered to the buyer. The only other blemish that I've found is that the driver's door won't lock. It seems to be something with the mechanism and may need a new lock. I will attempt to have this fixed before delivery as well. (Just depends on how quickly it sells and I have a feeling it won't last very long.)

After taking the pictures that you'll see below, I took this car for a 40 minute drive. It was superb! It hits a sweet spot between 45 and 65, where the 454 is singing and the car is floating. It corners, handles and brakes much better than a completely vintage Woody would, which gives you a lot of confidence to open it up and enjoy running at a good speed. The front shocks are modern, whereas the rears are a more vintage feel. It gives you the feeling of driving a true vintage car, with modern performance. 

Cosmetically, this Woody is amazing; the paint is smooth and deep, the wood is highly polished, the leather seats are without fault, the carpet is excellent, glass is clear, chrome has no pitting and on and on and on. I have never driven a car that gets the looks of admiration that this Woody gets. All people of all ages smile and give me a thumbs-up as I drive by.  Then, a little pressure on that accelrator, the 454 roars and they are BLOWN AWAY..."Wow", "Woah", "What the..." and then it's my turn to smile!

- Call Ken on 828-654-3222 upon completion to discuss payment and pick-up/delivery arrangements. We will overnight paperwork, liaise with your transporter, insurance company, or financial institution and just do whatever we can to make this a very easy, hassle-free transaction for you.

PAYMENT - A deposit of $1000 is required within 24 hours and all sales are to be completed no later than 7 days from the auction ending. This deposit can be payed via PayPal, Electronic Bank Transfer, Credit Card, or via an Overnight courier. This deposit is our way of knowing that you're a real buyer. If it's not received within 24 hours, eBay will be notified, the car will go back up on eBay and it will also be available for sale locally.  IF YOU WILL HAVE A PROBLEM PAYING THE DEPOSIT WITHIN 24 HOURS OR A PROBLEM COMPLETING THE TRANSACTION WITHIN 7 DAYS, PLEASE CONTACT KEN 828-654-3222 BEFORE YOU BID.

PAYING WITH PAYPAL and CREDIT CARDS - We accept a maximum of $2,000 (including deposit) to be paid via Paypal or credit card.

FEES - THERE IS A $99 DOC FEE ADDED TO EVERY SALE. This helps us to cover some of the extra costs involved with doing business on eBay. (We pay for all documents to be FedEx'd, we pay a monthly subscription to a shipping dispatch service, PayPal costs approximately 3% per transaction, etc.)  So the $99 doesn't go very far and isn't "just extra profit".

* DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION - We will endeavor to describe any flaws and conspicuous blemishes, but we've found that two people can have a very different idea of what is an acceptable attribute, or what condition is expected of any particular mileage vehicle. If paint condition is a concern to you contact us and let us describe the vehicle to you hands on. If mechanical condition is important to you, we encourage inspections from franchised dealers, inspection service companies and independent mechanics. We will do whatever we can to help to have an inspection completed, including delivering a car to a franchised dealer or independent mechanic, within a reasonable distance. ALL VEHICLES ARE SOLD "AS IS", unless still covered by manufacturer's warranty.

FOR SALE LOCALLY - This vehicle is for sale locally, so we reserve the right to end the auction early if sold.
