This 1951 Mercury Custom is built and owned by Joe Amato, 5 time
NHRA Top Fuel Champion, so this sled is sheer perfection inside and
out, and we would expect nothing less. With a 4 inch chop and laid
back A and B pillars, shaved and frenched body, and pancaked hood,
this beauty lays out lean and low, showing attention to detail to
the max. Mirror finish deep black paint with show quality chrome,
tinted glass, and remote openers. Under the hood, power is supplied
by a Ram Jet 502 sitting in a custom engine bay, and is backed by a
700 R4 overdrive transmission. Ford 9 inch rear with Global West
front suspension with tubular A arms, and 4 link rear suspension
with coil overs. Inside is just as sweet with bucket seats, custom
console, Auto Meter gauges, tilt wheel, Lokar shifter, big bad
sound system,Vintage AC/Heat, power windows, power brakes, and
electric emergency brake. 59 Caddy hubcaps give her just the right
shoes for that perfect look all around the block.
