looks like a century sabre to me and someone put all those Mercury tags on it.

Kinda looks like it may have a little rot on the bottom there. That is one nice looking windshield on it. I have seen those Mercury step pads somewhere else before, can't quite remember where. Skip.

Looks like a '61 Mercury Sabre. Built in Piru, CA.

I would assume that since the step pads say Mercury and it is listed as a Mercury that it is a Mercury. They were a wooden boat builder in Piru, CA. Maybe they were similar to Century. I just don't know enuff about either firm and their boats to judge the accuracy of the advertisement.

After seeing this thread and doing some research, I've decided that a 1959 Mercury will be my next boat. I mean what else would go as perfectly with this?

This car is currently under restoration.
