For Sale: 1951 Mercury Eight in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

The curvaceous body of the 1951 Mercury Eight is the perfect place to start for the full hot rod treatments. And they created an awesome all-around build with a powerful fuel-injected 502 Ramjet V8 motor, plenty of creature comforts inside (including leather and A/C), four-wheel disc brakes, and an aggressive stance with flames in the paint. It makes for an ideal street machine that would take you years to get right... if it wasn't already available right now.

The paint alone can attract a crowd and keep them captivated. Dark silver has been laid down with a professional hand, and so there is an even luster that highlights all the curves in the body. The lighter silver custom flames that turn to teal at the tips are a distinct way to deliver pure hot rod flair as they artfully burn down the sides and the hood. The roof has a few inches chopped out of it for a sleeker profile. More of this sleeker and speedy set up is also seen in the details like the frenched headlights, frenched blue dot taillights, deleted body trim, and sleeker grille. And the 15-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels with a wider rear set add to both the shine and sportiness of this coupe.

The gray interior has an attractive style that also harmonizes with the silver exterior. The leather upholstery feels plush, and the high-back bucket seats up front provide individual cruising comfort. They even power adjust to the ideal position. Custom door panels, a smooth dash, clean carpeting, and a nice headliner are all part of the thoughtful investments. There are upgrades for comfort, like power windows, cruise control, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The driving music is upgraded with an AM/FM/XM stereo with Bluetooth and a fold-out screen. The overall impression is about being driver-quality and driver-ready. That's why you have nice extras like a Flaming River steering wheel, a tilt column, and a full AutoMeter gauge package with speedo and tach.

The idea on this one is a classic lead sled with plenty of upgrades, and the engine bay absolutely takes that to heart. So within the ultra-sleek custom inner walls is a 502 cubic-inch V8 - one of the largest crate motors around. And it even features RamJet fuel injection for ideal power and consistency. It does a fine job of making plenty of muscle and a sweet rumble for the glasspack-style dual exhaust. And you can show off this great-looking total package everywhere thanks to good driving features, such as power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and a large aluminum radiator with electric fans to help keep this running cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. Plus, four-wheel power disc brakes with rear drilled rotors give you superior stopping power.

The Mercury Lead Sled is a true icon of custom motoring, and this one takes that style and gives you the added comfort and power you'll absolutely love. Call today!!!
