1950 Mercury Lead Sled with 58 Impala roof. 283 Ford flat head, 4spd stock rear. Hydraulic suspension with 2 pumps in trunk. Electric actuated doors. Custom chop & body work done in 90's & still solid though will need some work & paint. Drive train & interior will need work as well (out dated). Here’s the deal - purchased the car last year for $40000 (too much) from Baltria classics (crooks) relying on pics & Baltria’s description that it was a running drivable car. It will start after messing with it & roll down the street but not exactly a drivable car without investing time & money. More than I want to take on because of other projects I have. I’m looking for 1/2 what I paid for it. It hasn’t moved since the day I got it & is up on my lift for inspect. It is mean looking & can be a really cool car for someone willing to put the time/money in.
