For Sale: 1951 Mercury Custom in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Carso of Chicago is proud to present this 1951 Mercury Custom. This chop-top and dropped Merc is a true beauty. this lean mean machine was recently finished, and was modified in all the old-school ways. Rather than bondo and filler, the chop and body work was all done with lead. This lead-sled is powered by a Cadillac 472 cubic inch V8 and a 200R automatic transmission, both rebuilt roughly 1500 miles ago, when the odometer was reset. The entire car was taken down to the bones to clean up minor rust repair (a license plate was even found in the fender as a patch panel!) and built back up correctly, to insure years of trouble-free enjoyment. Nothing was overlooked as the body was built back up, as the electrical system was re-wired, as the suspension was rebuilt, or as the HVAC system was retrofitted making this full size Custom cruiser into one clean ride. The side-exit exhaust is fully functional, and a quick removal of the cover plates will have this Caddy engine screaming out the side of this Merc. This Merc may be low, but it sure isn't slow! Hop in the drivers seat before it takes off without you!
