Description

The Mercury Eight was a full-sized automobile manufactured from 1939 to 1951. The 1949 Mercury Eight was Mercury's first postwar automobile and is currently very popular with customizers.

This casting has also been named the Passion Too and Purple Passion 2; while not entirely related to the Purple Passion, a convertible version was produced in 2007.
