1951 Mercury Two-Door Woody Wagon Restomod – Sold?
May 11, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
Classic exterior styling married with modern comfort and convenience is what defines the growing restomod category. This stunning 1951 Mercury Woody wagon we first spotted in April 2021 on Craigslist in Tyler, Texas appears to be a high-quality build currently offered at a you-can’t-replicate-it-for-this price of $54,900. Comparing that price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the private seller has their Woody Restomed priced five hundred dollars higher than this guide’s #3 “Good” estimate of $54,400 for a stock example. Similarly, the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool reveals the asking price falls between this guide’s #3 “Good” estimate of $45,000 and its #2 “Very Good” appraisal of $60,000 for a stock example.
We normally might pass on this Mercury because the build relies on a GM LTI and 700R4 powertrain rather than a modern Ford combination. In this case, however, we’re willing to make an exception as this appears to be a high-quality build in need of a new home due to the current caretaker’s health issues forcing a sale.
Here’s the seller’s description:
