For Sale: 1949 Mercury Coupe in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

• This vehicle is located at our Indianapolis facility - 2461 Reeves Rd #194, Plainfield, IN 46168 •

Coming off a nationwide freeze of manufacturing, Mercury began their production of their first vehicle since World War II. The legendary flathead V8 continued into the new model year but with a slight improvement in power, the transmission received an excellent option for overdrive giving it a bit of an easier-to-manage top speed, and with its new "ponton" styling found on the Mercury Eight, this vehicle became an instant hit. This new design gave the Mercury Eight a much more distinct look differentiating it from its cousin, the Lincoln, and although Lincoln was popular in sales that year as well, Mercury went on to take honors for most sales and broke the record amount in its first year after war. The first few years of Mercury post-war became a popular car to customize and even developed a catchy name, the "lead sled".

GR Auto Gallery of Indy is pleased to present this one-of-a-kind, custom-built 1949 Mercury Coupe. This vehicle was built for the 1983 Chicago World of Wheels event where it ended up taking home first place. That credential alone speaks for itself. For a hotrod that was built over 41 years ago, this Mercury shows in great shape inside and out.

Powering this Lead Sled is a 327ci V8 with a 3 x 2 carburetor setup. The power is routed through a TH350 transmission and a 9-inch Ford rear end. The suspension and brakes were also upgraded. Highlights include: Rack and pinion stearing, front disc brakes, air ride, a Vintage Air AC kit, and more.

Price does not include applicable tax, title, license, processing and/or $199 documentation fees.
