The first all-New post war Mercury's were introduced April 29, 1948. Unlike tradition they did not look like factory Fords, but shared Lincoln's styling. The grill resembled a shiny coil divided in the center, wrap around front and rear bumpers. James Dean put these cars on the map.

Crazy bout a Mercury! is how the song goes. Anyone might be crazy for this Merc. It is big, black, lean, and mean! A perfect example of a heavy weight cruiser ready to show, drive, and enjoy. The body is dripping in nice black paint and lots of chrome. I would hate to know what was spent on restoring all the trim on this car. It is all but outlined in chrome trim. It rides on a modified chassis with an added sub-frame, tubular A-arms, front/rear sway bars, front disc brakes, and rack & pinon steering. The stance is sinister and the ride is excellent. Power comes from a Chevy 350 V-8 with all the goodies, including a dress up kit, power steering, 4 barrel carburetor, dual exhaust, air conditioning and lots of show quality details. A Turbo 350 automatic transmission delivers the power to a stock Ford rear end. An expensive Hartz cloth top covers a crisp, clean, custom interior with smooth seat covers, door panels, thick carpet, tilt steering column, custom steering wheel, CD stereo, factory style gauges, and faux finished wood dash board. It looks great and is very comfortable. The show quality trunk is fully lined with carpet. This is a very cool car that really turns head. 4 people could go on a long cruise in comfort and really enjoy themselves. If you have been looking for a hot rod but want to ride in luxury and comfort this is the car for you.
