eBay I have decided to sell my custom one off 1951 merc. This car has been a five year build with hundreds of hours of labor and fabrication. The merc started out as an original 1951 mercury with all original sheetmetal. This car was built in house by my shop one off design, it was being built to compete in the detroit autorama for the riddler award. Here is a list of the build info and numerous custom body mods. No expense was spared on this build. THE PICTURES OF THE CAR PAINTED BLACK ARE RENDITION PHOTOS OF THE CAR FINISHED...THE PICTURES OF THE MERC IN BARE METAL IS HOW THE CAR STANDS NOW.

This is truly a one of a kind custom lead sled. Our goal was to build a merc like nobody else and do mods that had never been done. Its like a 1950 shoebox and merc hybrid. I hate to see it go and hope it will find the right home and get finished the right way. .the pictures of the merc are a rendition of the car finished done by carter hickman. The pictures of the car in bare metal are how the car stands now. I also have a beautiful custom made 800 dollar julianos steering in primer for the car that i will include in the sale. The exhaust is also completely done front to back and they dump under the rear bumper behind the tailights.
