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.

    eBay Find of the Day: Craterface's '49 Mercury convertible from Grease

    Wed, 29 Jan 2014 17:30:00 EST

    Here is your chance to own your very own piece of greased lightning. Well, not the Greased Lighting, it's actually the black, flamed 1949 Mercury convertible that races against John Travolta in the classic 1978 movie Grease, and it's for auction on eBay Motors.
    While it appeared in the film's exciting drag race in a Los Angeles storm drain, the hot rod was reportedly lost until last year, when the seller found it as a shell. He verified that it was the actual car with original builder, Eddie Paul, and sent the car for a complete restoration.
    The auction includes original parts like the exhaust tips used in the movie and bent bumper from when it hit Travolta's car in the scene. The restorer recreated the scorpion stickers on the doors, razor hubcaps and license plate. He also installed a 1949 Mercury 255-cubic-inch (4.2-liter), flathead V8 and three-speed manual transmission with overdrive.

    Jill Wagner retired as Mercury spokeswoman

    Wed, 17 Nov 2010 16:20:00 EST

    Jill Wagner has officially given up her crown as the queen of Mercury. With the Ford middle child on its way to the scrap heap, Wagner no longer has any automotive hardware to promote. Given her varied talents, we wouldn't be surprised to see her pick up where she left off with another automaker.
    And here you thought you'd never be upset about Mercury's passing.
    Thanks for the tip, Gregg!

    eBay Find of the Day: Mercury Marauder two-door convertible

    Wed, 31 Aug 2011 18:30:00 EST

    Never underestimate what you'll see on eBay Motors. Take this unique creation, for example. Near as we can tell, it's the same 2002 Mercury Marauder that was modified into a two-door convertible by Ford for the 2002 Chicago Auto Show. According to the seller, this car still boasts its Eaton supercharger bolted to a 4.6-liter V8 engine, and at the time of its debut, the engine was rated at a lofty 335 horsepower. We have a hard time believing that the extra ponies would do much to offset the weight of the additional frame stiffeners and top mechanism on the car, however.
    The vehicle is currently offered for sale by a dealer in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, though the listing is mum on how the convertible managed to make its way from Ford's Windy City show stand into the seller's inventory. If you like what you see, the machine can be yours for the princely sum of $75,000 or best offer. Head over to eBay Motors to take a gander at the listing.
