AutoHunter Spotlight: 1958 Mercury Medalist

Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by, is this unusual 1958 Mercury Medalist two-door sedan. The Medalist was Mercury’s bottom-of-the-line model, only available in 1956 and reintroduced in 1958, presumably as a recessionary model. Power comes from a 383ci V8 through a three-speed manual transmission. Features include an AM radio and clock. Finished in white with a two-tone gray vinyl and cloth interior, this 1958 Mercury comes from the selling dealer with the original bill of sale and clear Indiana title. 

The Marble White exterior is accented with chrome trim, hood ornament, chrome mirror caps and wall-to-wall chrome bumpers. Stainless steel “MERCURY” and “MEDALIST” emblems adorn the front and sides of “Big M.”

This Mercury sits on 15-inch wheels that are complemented with Mercury wheel covers and wrapped in Michelin Commander whitewall tires.

The interior features two-tone gray vinyl and cloth bench seats, gray and black door panels, vent windows, AM radio and analog clock.

Behind the four-spoke steering wheel is a 120-mph speedometer plus gauges for other vehicle stats. The dealer states the car’s analog odometer showing 65,470 miles is accurate. 

Under the hood is the optional “MEL” 383ci big-block. A standard three-speed manual gearbox with a column-mounted shifter delivers power to the rear wheels.

The sale of this Mercury includes an original bill of sale and will include a $175 dealer fee to be added to the sale price of the vehicle.
