1947 "dick Dean" Mercury Coupe on 2040-cars

Year:1947 Mileage:12000

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.

Curtain officially comes down on Mercury as dealers remove signage

Mon, 03 Jan 2011 09:32:00 EST

The process of shutting down the Mercury is complete. Ford officially made the decision to close its mid-level brand in June of 2010. In the months that followed, Ford offered its dealers money to stop selling the cars, with production shutting down in September. The last Mercury, a Mariner, rolled off the assembly line in the beginning of October and former spokesperson Jill Wagner said her good-byes to both the car and her job. Now the last piece of the brand has come down as dealers are removing any and all Mercury signage from their lots.

Translogic drives wood-burning Mercury Beaver XR-7

Sun, 31 Jul 2011 18:29:00 EST

You read the title right, we're talking about the Mercury Beaver XR-7. No, Mercury never officially built a car called the beaver. This is the brainchild of upstate New Yorker Chip Beam, who owns and operates Beaver Energy, LLC. It runs on gases created by wood pellets fermented in a 2,400-degree furnace and fed to a supercharged Ford 4.6-liter V8.
By all accounts, it gets down the road just fine, and has pretty close to full power. The best part is, you can grow the fuel yourself and avoid patronizing big oil, if that's your thing. The only drawback that we can see to the Mercury Beaver XR-7 is the PVC pipe jungle occupying the space that would be the trunk under normal circumstances.
Still, if you're willing to smell like a mountain man and look like a bad Back to the Future knockoff, this ride is right up your alley. Click past the jump to see Translogic's take on this modified Merc.

NHTSA closes probes on Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey

Wed, 09 Jan 2013 17:59:00 EST

The Detroit News reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has officially closed its investigations into 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2004-2005 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey models. The separate probes found no issues that pose safety concerns. NHTSA began investigating certain Grand Cherokee SUVs over complaints that power steering hoses could detach during operation, thereby increasing the risk of a vehicle fire. Of the 24 reports of failure, none alleged smoke or fire in the engine bay, and Chrysler has since modified the power steering cooler assembly to reduce the likelihood of the failure.
Meanwhile, certain Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey vehicles garnered a government probe after receiving complaints that the models were equipped with faulty scissor jacks. The agency had received six reports of the jacks failing or causing injuries, including one incident that resulted in a fatality. But NHTSA says the jack failure rate is similar to those found in other vehicles. In those six cases, the government agency found the jacks were being used for something other than changing a tire, and investigators could not determine whether the emergency brake was set or the rear tires were properly chocked.
