Gateway Classic Cars Milwaukee is excited to present this 1951
Mercury Coupe. The Mercury eight was produced from 1939-1951 as a
full-sized model. Spanning three generations which included many
models including coupes, sedans, convertibles, and station wagons.
The third generation (1949-1951) Mercury coupe is the most prized
among car collectors. Lovingly the "lead Sled" and popular among
hot rod circles. Known today for their chopped top, lowered stance,
and custom paint schemes. This 1951 Mercury coupe is no exception
with its unique blue paint and custom flames across the hood. An
all-steel car that has a partially shaved roof, original rear wheel
fender covers, frenched headlights and a period correct front
grille. A Fat-man fabrications front end with custom springs and
rebuilt rear leaf springs with lowering blocks are great additions
to this Mercury's overall good looks. Under the hood is a 396ci
Chevrolet stroker engine attached to a TH700R4 automatic
transmission. All powered to the rear wheels through a 3.73 10 bolt
posi rear end. Upgrades include MSD 6A ignition with RPM limiter,
Sander long tube powder coated headers, 3" dual exhaust with glass
packs, three-core aluminum radiator with both mechanical and
electric fans, updated fuel tank with Holley high-output electric
fuel pump, Painless fused wiring harness with fiberglass mesh loom
converted to 12 volt, and power steering and power front disk
brakes have been installed. The interior is fitted with a burgundy
leather interior highlighting comfort features including "Vintage
Air" air conditioning, and 12- volt gauges retrofitted into dash
with original back plates and dial indicators from stock gauges.
Automotive history will always hold a place in its heart for the
1951 Mercury Coupe. We all remember great movies such as Grease and
American Graffiti which highlights the Mercury Eight as one of the
coolest cars ever built. c
