1950 Mercury Convertible
Location: Bay Area, CA Price: $48,500
1950 Mercury convertible customized in a traditional style. This is an original convertible that was professionally built to be both shown and driven. There is a lot of attention to detail combined with a well-designed chassis to make this a very nice custom. I have personally owned this car for over 7 years and have driven it on trips as far as 1500 miles away with no problems. The car has been well maintained and cared and has the following:
Frenched in headlights, taillights, and intennas,
Professionally chopped 3.5 inches with fully operating original manual top
Louvered original hood
Shaved door handles and trunk handle; original skirts
55 DeSoto grill
Accessory Mercury spotlights
Power windows and locks
Cadillac power front seats
Full AirRide Technologies suspension; C notched partially boxed stock frame; 4 bar in the rear with panhard bar utilizing new AirRide 8000 series airbags; front AirRide series ??? airbags.
Camaro subframe professionally grafted into frame with disc brakes
Currie 9 rearend with 3.05 ratio
Stainless custom Rock Valley 16 gal. fuel tank
Rebuilt 327 with camel hump heads (less than 10k miles), new carb and distributor
Turbo 400 transmission
Power steering and brakes
New BeCool aluminum radiator with twin fans
JVC stereo and speakers
New Coker tires on chrome steelie rims
New dual exhaust
Original electric window switches and rear ash trays included in the sale
Nice 1949 Merc dash available for sale with car
This car floats down the road on a very comfortable suspension, drives straight and is very reliable. I would not hesitate to drive this car across country. The suspension is set up so the car sits low at ride height per AirRide specs, yet has plenty of suspension travel with small steel wheels mounted in the old leaf spring hoops (see pic) to prevent scraping of the rear or gas tank when going up uneven surfaces and driveways. Please feel to call me at 415-518-8776 with any questions. I have lots of pics and a video.
