Gateway Classic Cars of Louisville is proud to present this awesome 1946 Mercury Coupe. The 46 Mercury was like many of the American cars that year, a 42 Model that was brought back into production late 45 for the 46-model year. The smooth lines were widely accepted but it was still considered to be a "fancy" Ford. This Streetrodded 46 Merc is a far-cry from what it originally was. The first thing that catches your eye is the high-end glass like paint job. The ghosted in flames are done with a surgeon's precision giving this classic a one-off look. Under the hood the engine bay has been taken to the next level with the firewall smoothed and painted to match it is as clean as I have seen. The small block Chevy sits nestled right between the rails. With all the accessories chromed out this is a clean car from front to back. Hit the button for the remote popper and have a seat in the high-end leather bucket seats. The Mercury emblem has been done in red snakeskin to bring the outside in giving it a unique look. The dash was cleaned up and with the gauges move to a more central location giving the car a modern feel. Hit the button for the power windows and turn the AC on. There is nothing this street rod doesn't have. Even the Minitab in the back was done so smooth and nice that it's hard to believe it didn't come that way. If you have wanted something different but not just so over the top that its gaudy this 46 Merc is exactly that. Options on this custom 1946 Mercury Coupe include, AC, AM/FM, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Tilt, Leather Interior, Seat Belts, and Aluminum Wheels with Radial Tires.This 1946 Mercury Coupe is for sale in our Louisville Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD Video at www.gatewayclassiccars.com.
