We bet you think this 100% custom 1950 Mercury Monterey Woody Wagon
has that big cargo area because it's perfect for your surfboard,
right? Well once you go over the effort it took to craft this a
wagon, then add a bespoke interior, performance V8, and all that
lumber, you'll realize that big back area is so you can fit all the
The 1950 Mercury Eight coupe is the definitive lead sled, and the woody wagon is an American icon.... And now you're looking at the only union of those two legends. Oh yes, this is not just some restored wagon. The car started life as a coupe and transformed into a one-of-a-kind vehicle that you wish the factory made all those decades ago. In fact, the quality is so good casual admirers will assume it's just an awesome restoration, but us enthusiasts will be floored by the excellence of the custom work. On top of the new body is beautiful Pear Red that was applied about a year ago. This has so much gloss and depth, you'll swear the steel is candy coated. Every good lollypop or candy apple need a stick, and so real wood that been laid down and follows the fender curves. It's a truly an unforgettable American custom, and we haven't even gotten to all that brightwork yet. The grille's toothy grin is borrowed from a '58 Corvette; there's great trim outlining the original pillarless hardtop and the custom wagon windows; and there's bold 15-inch Billet Specialties Legend Series chrome wheels.
In true old-school woody fashion, the interior feels like a lumberyard. Beautiful wood covers the doors, all the side panels, pillars, kick panels, and headliner. Matching this same tone of the timber nicely are two rows of leather seats. The rear set even folds down and the rear hatch opens out so you can have your surfboard sticking out the back while cranking the beach boys on the AM/FM/CD stereo (ok, we're a little more modern, so you can plug in your iPod, too.) From the driver's seat you have a good command of everything. This includes the power window switches and the ice-cold air conditioning. You get a cool chrome and leather three-spoke steering wheel, and just beyond that are a full set of matching Omega gauges.
We just about dare you to find one more component under the hood that you can chrome. The V8 not only looks amazing, but it's a 350 cubic-inch Chevy crate motor that has an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, and HEI distributor. So you know it's got the kind of power to hustle you to the beach the moment that surf's up. But more than just a cool motor, take some time to look at all the undercarriage photos. See how clean everything is? That's because there's only 3,300 miles on this whole build. The frame looks amazing, and its supported but the beefy suspension components borrowed from a late model Ford pickup. So this is a complete custom build that you can rely on for getting you just about anywhere. In fact, with features like power steering, front disc brakes, and a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, this is a fun choice to drive from coast to coast.
You've always dreamed about having a car that no one else does, and now is that rare opportunity. We've even got the restoration/build photos and recipes so you can take friends and show judges along this custom journey from start to finish. It's the only lead sled wagon, and it can be all yours if you're quick enough to snatch it up. Call today!!
