Yes the car is still for sale however, lately I've been having thoughts of getting it back on the street and having some fun with it as my son and I originally planned.  The car does have current license, registration and insurance and I do have a big block or a small block that I could install, I just have to convince my wife I can do it all by myself with no help.  At this time my bottom line would be the first $ 2,500 takes it, if I can't get that out of the car I'll keep it.  Thank you for the inquiry

I have always pictured my wagon with a '57 Buick Caballero roof/pillar-less hardtop (love that line from the front to the rear of the passenger window)...and I hate to say it here...but a '59/60 Chevy dash (love that dash gauge cluster).

That would be quite a project.

I'm not a fan of the 57 Fairlane rear quarters...that fin line is too much. The Custom/Ranchero/Wagon line is perfect.

Thanks for posting those pics, Junior. I had no idea Mercury made a "hardtop" wagon....very cool!
Zap..."Amarillo"?...southwest color scheme? Thanks, but I was thinking high gloss black, all over, with a red or tan interior...LOL...I'm to old for a project like that, but the figuring-it-out would be fun.
It would be awesome to find a "too-far-gone-to-restore" 2 dr. Mercury wagon and use the components to build a Ford Fairlane based wagon. I wonder what wheelbase those Mercury wagons were. Hmmm...Al's friend, Marty, in Colorado is big time into Merc's...wonder what he knows.

Those Mercury wagons are killer!  Been thinking almost constantly on this since yesterday and have named this phantom idea the Amarillo and should be only available in Southwest color schemes. Staying with a 50s splash, seats should have a Navaho blanket theme.

Yes, I know you're all thinking sure am glad Zap wasn't working in Detroit in 57. But I can see it. Need to get my pencils out and start on the top secret ''Amarillo Project  :us-texas: ''.

It's boat decking made by the Lonseal company. This is similar to a linoleum product but much tougher and nicer. Pretty slick stuff , looks cool and is very easy to work with. It's available in three different variations this being teak and holly with a gloss finish.
I didn't want carpet and you can't get the correct ribbed battleship linoleum anymore . This was the look I wanted.
A picture of the rear seat pans, again the inserts are not yet glued just placed after cutting so they are a little wavy.
