This is your chance to own a real piece of history. This is something that can never be recreated. This Mercury was one of the last cars that the Sultan of Chop himself chopped, Dick Dean. I have the pictures and the documentation to prove it. The car just had fresh paint put on and new interior installed. This is a great car, and can be driven anywhere. Below are some of the features:
1.) Headlights frenched, using '51 Ford bezels cut down 5/8" so as to not be too deep in the fender.
2.) Parking lights were relocated.
3.) Front bumper was moved back approx. 4"
4.) The tail lights are '51 Studebaker Commander with homemade buckets and mounted horizontally.
5.) Rear fenders are welded and moulded to the body, as is the stone deflector, which is also extended down at the ends to flow with the lower edge of the fenders.
6.) The rear bumper has been narrowed 3" and moved closer to the body.
7.) It has been nosed, decked and shaved.
8.) It originally came to me with no stainless trim, we added the Mercury stainless.
9.) It is chopped 4" at the B pillars, not sure of the measurement at the front and rear. I have the B Pillar cut out.
10.) Power steering, power disc brakes, air conditioning, working spots, SBC, automatic trans,
11.) Restored, original 1950 Mercury accessory wheel
12.) All the receipts and paperwork
The paint did not come out as expected. It has some flaws. I wish it did not, because I did not pay for flaws. The door poppers do not work as well with the new interior. The doors are pretty tight. Someone could probably do some adjusting and get them to function a little better.
This is an old Kustom and I strongly urge you to come look at the car and drive it. Once it is sold, it is the property of the buyer. Car is sold as is. I can not be your eyes or ears. Payment due in full within seven days of auction end. Payment via cash or wire transfer only.
