For Sale: 1950 Mercury Eight in Fredericksburg, Texas


Vehicle Description

Welcome to StreetDreamsTexas as we celebrate our 22nd year in the classic and muscle car business. As America emerged from WWII, automobile stylists were forced to dust off their prewar designs because arms production had supplanted auto manufacturing during the war. The race was on for a new look that would capture the hearts and wallets of the rapidly expanding middle class in postwar America. Ford, including their Mercury division, was the first of the Big Three American manufacturers to cash in on the new envelope bodies that blended fenders and doors into one cohesive form. Mercury's version became so iconic that most of these classics have been customized beyond restorable condition, leaving very few original examples. Our Maywood Green (13) 1950 Mercury Eight Sport Sedan is a pleasant departure from that trend. The only modifications we've seen to this rolling time capsule are 4 easily removable 1 lowering blocks that give the car a great stance. Features include the correct 255 ci flathead V8 (8CM) with correct Ford-Holley carburetor, 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive, beautiful beige and brown interior, fender skirts, dual spotlights, optional 8 tube AM radio (currently inoperative), and the correct accessory road lamps. The body is straight and rust-free, the interior is sharp, but the paint is fading a bit. The frame is sound with a dusting of surface rust and please note the pans in the images; you can see that they're pristine where the undercoating has peeled. A good example of one of the coolest cruisers on the continent. Leather jacket not included! Street Dreams (830-997-1950) is a full service dealership that can assist with worldwide delivery, insurance, and financing options.
