1950 Mercury Convertible "Lead Rag"
After nearly ten years of enjoyment, it's time for me to sell my all time favorite car. This is possibly the chance of a lifetime to own a real 1950 Mercury Convertible that has all the cool custom touches of only the best Lead Sleds. I call her the Lead Rag, which stands for Lead Sled Rag Top. She's been in magazines, won lots of top trophies and given me hours of great times. She is a driver too, this is no trailer queen you can drive her anywhere you want.

Here's a partial list of options:
Chopped top convertible with Haartz canvas top and boot cover and yes it works.
351 W Ford engine with AOD trans and a 9" Lincoln rear end.
4 wheel disk brakes, Fat Man front end, A/C, cruiser skirts, 
Ground effect lights under the car, Dual exhaust with Flame Throwers and 4 link Air Ride suspension by the Bagman.
53 DeSoto grille, 57 Caddie hubcaps and air cleaner
59 Caddie taillights, dual electric antennas and they are all frenched in.
Custom paint with multi-color flames and awesome pin stripping by "Styles".
Full leather interior, including the trunk. 
Real Appleton spotlights, 
Booming great stereo with sub-woofer built into center consol.
Molded in side pipes with Mercury Man covers.
Diamond Back classic wide white wall tires.
Lots more goodies with unlimited cool fun.

    Automakers tussle over owners of 'orphan' makes

    Thu, 10 May 2012 08:29:00 EST

    When General Motors put down several of its brands in recent years, it also let loose thousands of brand-loyal customers who will eventually need another car.
    R.L. Polk Associates estimates there are more than 18 million cars from 16 discontinued makes on the road today. Those "orphan owners" have sales-hungry competitors seeing dollar signs. GM is offering Saturn owners $1,000 cash toward a Chevy Cruze, Cadillac CTS or a GMC Acadia. Ford is giving its Mercury lease customers a chance to get out of their contracts with no early-termination penalty and offering to waive six remaining payments if they drive off in a Ford or Lincoln.
    Edmunds.com research shows the efforts are paying off somewhat for GM, with 39 percent of Pontiac owners, 37 percent of Hummer owners and 31 percent of Saturn owners taking delivery of another GM-branded vehicle. But that leaves as much as 69 percent of owners going elsewhere. Ford, Honda and Toyota seem to be attracting many former GM owners.

    Kit Cat: Mercury Cougar makes perfect Bugatti Veyron substitute

    If you've got a pulse in your wrist and a snapping brain cell in your head, chances are you wouldn't mind parking a Bugatti Veyron in your garage. But for most mere mortals, scrounging up the cash for a physics-bending piece of 16-cylinder glory would require all sorts of unpalatable tasks. Fortunately for those who want to look the part without having to participate in human trafficking, the kit car universe has stepped in to save the day. All you need is a 1999-2002 Mercury Cougar, a boat load of fiberglass and a little patience.
    Oh, and $89,000.

    Report: Last Mercury for retail business built on Sunday

    Mon, 04 Oct 2010 17:29:00 EST

    Ford is already well into winding down its Mercury line, and the autoamker has announced that the very last of the soon-to-be dead brand's products built for retail sales was manufactured on Sunday, October 3. The final Mercury Mariner rolled off of the assembly line at the company's Kansas City facility, putting an end to a brand with over 70 years of history behind it.
    Even after the Mariner heads off into the automotive sunset, Ford says that it will continue to manufacture a handful of Mercury models for fleet and government service for a while longer, though mum's the word on how long we can expect that practice to continue.
    Interestingly enough, according to USA Today, most incentives on Mercury vehicles have all but dried up, even as the brand's August production increased by 120 percent compared to July's figures. Instead of cash on the hood, some areas are offering no-cost maintenance or similar programs. Even so, Mercury has continued to out-sell Lincoln right to the end - besting Ford's luxury arm's sales by nine percent in August.
