1951 Merc Custom Street Rod
This is an amazing example of a timeless Merc Street Rod. These cars have been done many different ways and this is one of the cleanest examples I've ever came across. This thing looks like Michael J. Fox brought it back from to the future!! It's like a 50's show car with a few modern touches.
It's chopped 3 1/2 inches. All the original stainless trim on the windows has been retained and reworked to accommodate the chop. It has 50's Buick stainless side trim custom fit to it with custom side skirts notched to match the lines on the trim. The spot lights are fully functional. Shaved door handles with electric poppers, custom lakes pipes (not functional), Frenched headlights, frenched taillights, frenched power antenna, Stainless Caddy hubcaps w whitewall tires, Custom power trunk, Desoto grille
Custom white real leather wrapped Caddy seats with center console and cup holders, purple seat belts, all leather door panels with real wood accents, door lights and speakers, Power windows, Dakota Digital gauge cluster, all billet knobs on dash, billet leather wrapped steering wheel, Custom woodgrain center console, Custom chrome convertible top hardware, Vintage Air air conditioning and heat. AM/FM CD player with blue tooth and usb to play all your music from your phone, Push button start! spare tire in the trunk.
Custom built performance (I was told over 500hp no dyno sheet tho) 70's Cadillac Eldorado 500ci said to be a stroker engine (owner said bored to 514ci) builder built a custom intake to fit two four barrel carbs! Lots of aluminum accents under the hood. 700R4 adapted to fit the Caddy block. ]
This car was featured in Southern Rodder Magazine! This was a beloved family heirloom but circumstances forced the sale of it. Someone tried to put the top down without undoing the trim on the corners and ripped it on both sides. I would suggest a patch of some sort done professionally. I also considered replacing the top. Please factor this in when bidding. It is sold as-is in the pics. The rips are the same on both sides. This is a high dollar build car priced to move! These are priced over $100k this is a gift at this price! Please call with questions for quickest response! Thanks for your time and Happy Bidding! 570-840-5942 Dave
|“Not a brand new car, it has some imperfections. Convertible top has a rip on each side above the quarter panels. The rip is the same on both sides, I'd suggest a patch with some design on it to cover it up. There are some nicks on the paint. I would show it the way it is! Im very proud of it and it has won many awards! This car was driven 36,000 miles!! It's a proven driver! I'd drive this across the country without hesitation!” |
