For Sale: 1949 Mercury Coupe in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Enthusiasts know that the 1949 Mercury Eight coupe is the true lead sled. So take some time to look over every inch, because there have been thousands $$$$$$ invested in the paint, body, big block V8, air ride suspension, and more. It's all to make sure that the definitive custom car model surpasses your expectations for a custom coupe.


Take a long look at the body. This Mercury has all the great traits of the legendary hot rods like the frenched headlights, shaved door handles, Cadillac hub caps, fender skirts, blue-dot taillights, and dual spotlights. And the chrome front end has a smooth 10,000-watt smile. Of course, our favorite custom element has to be the paint. The sleek dark blue is a candy-coated canvas to lay custom work on top. Those flames are done with a color-shifting chameleon color that also has an impressive depth. It's like someone dipped the front and sides in over-proof alcohol, set it on fire, and sent this driving through the night air. Adding to this coupe's sinister sleekness is the expertly chopped roof, and the air bag suspension that allows you to dial-in an ultra-low stance on demand. We have receipts that document over $100,000 invested in the paint and body over a multi-year restoration, but the quality of this custom already proves the solid investment.


Pop the remote door openers to reveal more great custom work. The full deep blue package with burgundy inserts has a similar color vibe to the exterior. A custom cruiser means a comfortable machine. That's why the seats have comfy cloth inserts. Plus, the front one is power adjustable and has a fold-down armrest for individual space. There's more great features like an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input, cruise control, air ride switches, and provisions for air conditioning. You also get cool driving features, including a B&M ratchet floor shifter and a blue-wrapped sports steering wheel featuring a tilt column and classic Mercury badge in the center.


Under the hood is serious power for this custom machine. It's a 468 cubic-inch big block V8. This big displacement motor likes to show off its power with some extra flair with the big air grabber and custom valve covers. It has all the right pieces for a strong-running setup, including an MSD ignition, upgraded pulleys, and a BeCool aluminum radiator w/electric fan. The big V8 inhales deeply with an Edelbrock 750 four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. And headers add even more power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. The comfortable cruising nature continues with the upgraded Camaro front end, and tubular arms on the four-link rear. There's also the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front.


This is a true lead sled with an award-worthy look. And it's also got the power and smooth ride to really make you want to show this off everywhere. So don't let the ultimate custom slip away, call today!!!
