This 1957 Mercury Voyager 9 passenger station wagon found on ebay has been in Nevada its entire existence including the last 20 years in a museum. The car is described as ‘totally rust free and solid as a rock.’ Judging from the pictures, it’s hard to disagree. The options include a numbers matching 290 horsepower 362 V8, Merc-O-Matic transmission, power seats and a third row seat. The seller says the car has been repainted once the right way and sanded to a smooth finish. The chrome and trim pieces are 100% original and in beautiful condition.
The inside of the car is 100% original down to the rubber mats. The few imperfections include a small tear on drivers side, a couple of loose seams in the headliner and a few small cracks in the steering wheel.
Mechanically, the wagon is said to start and drive flawlessly with no squeaks or rattles.
With hardtop styling, classic 2-tone paint and a desirable Turnpike Cruiser engine this rare Voyager is one of the nicer 1950’s wagon finds.
