This is an incredibly built 1951 Mercury Coupe Lead Sled which took 10 years and $200,000.00 to complete. It was started with a rust free stock totally restored 1951 Mercury. From there it was totally disassembled and built from scratch. No attention to detail was overlooked including the chrome window trim, molded in drip rail above the side windows, recessed rear bumper, and if you notice how the rear window transitions into the trunk surround rather than jst ending abruptly like most chopped coupes. It has been chopped, is House of Colors green with pearl, full leather interior including door panels, suede headliner, and wool carpets. It has a green lighted Dakota Dash, Customautosound hidden audio, Vintage air conditioning, rear air bags, shaved handles, 302 engine, C4 transmission, and Ford 9" rear end. front power disc brakes, custom made steering wheel and dash knobs, plus much, much more. This car only has 5,165 miles since completed. If you want a one of a kind car thats been done right to enjoy now then this car is worth consideration.
