The 1949-1951 Mercury coupes have long been a hot rodding cult
classic and the choice of builders everywhere. The classic styling
coupled with the Flathead V8 made for a perfect lead sled back in
the day, and make for a perfect retro lead sled now. With no end to
the creations possible with a classic Merc coupe, these cars are
sure to be fan favorites for years to come! This particular 1950
Mercury Coupe for sale is just about everything you could want in
an old school cruiser.
This 1950 Mercury Eight retains much of its original styling while
simultaneously carrying a hint of hot rod everywhere it goes. The
top hasn't been chopped, nor has the body been otherwise
drastically altered, so perhaps this is what helps it retain a
slight air of originality while showing off as a custom cruiser.
The paint is a gorgeous metallic dark red that oozes class and
shows well under any lighting. The fender skirts really help give
it that lead sled aura, while the smooth chrome hubcaps and white
walls subtly spice things up. Though it isn't one of those "in your
face" customs, this Mercury is sure to draw a crowd just about
anywhere you go! The body is clean and straight under that gorgeous
paint job, and all of the seams are visible as they should be, not
covered up like they often get when these Mercs are reworked.
Thought the exterior was gorgeous? Well, it is, but wait until you
step inside! The gorgeous dark red theme carrys on right to the
interior where you'll find nothing but a deep, beautiful red tone
throughout. The seats are covered in velour while any painted
surfaces have been made to match the exterior paint. The chrome in
the dash adds just the right amount of contrast to tie everything
together! Truly, the interior of this car is as stunning as the
exterior and simply will not disappoint. All of the details have
been addressed, and all components are showing very minimal
Under the hood sits a vehicular legend, a 239ci Flathead V8! This
appears to be a mostly original-spec Flathead that has been done up
with minor upgrades inside and out. You'll notice that while it
retains a mostly factory original appearance, there are assorted
chrome accents. Additionally, someone took the time to paint
various components the same metallic red as the exterior. Even the
oil pan is painted that color! This car runs great and sounds great
too; it gets great smiles-per-gallon! The engine bay is clean and
tidy and continues to reflect the quality of the build this car
If this old Merc hasn't already impressed you, take a look at the
receipts for the work performed on this car! This was a 3-year
restoration that was just finished in February of 2019 and easily
totals over $100k in restoration receipts, and we photographed a
few of the larger receipts as proof.
