When you think about the ultimate dream custom, nothing beats a true lead sled. This
1951 Mercury Eight has that slick attitude that makes it a rolling icon. But more than just the right classic custom pieces, the upgrades like the A/C interior, overdrive transmission, and much more make it a great all-around cruiser.
This one really gets the look right from every angle. After all, these are supposed to be slick customs, so you have the lowered suspension, frenched headlights, shaved door handles, smoothed rear, and all trim expertly deleted. It's all wrapped in a beautiful metallic burgundy that lets the light dance off the body – highlighting the super-slick appearance even further. We especially like the pinstriping. Finished in a coordinating purple and red, it looks like if you combined the two colors, it would give you the body paint! And all the right accessory pieces are there, too, like the color-matched visor, dual spotlights, fender skirts, and lake pipes (display). Plus, the whitewalls with shining Mercury hubcaps command attention all on their own. And of course, there are the bumpers. The double-hump look in front is part of what gives this car its legendary status. The right customizers knew how to customize the factory pieces to create an artful presentation like you see here.
If you like the look of the whitewalls against the paint, then you're going to love the interior. White is now the primary color and the exterior-matching burgundy is now a terrific accent on the seat piping, carpeting, steering wheel, and dash. Even the pinstriping returns on the dash to remind you how much of a thoughtful and uniform build this is. More than just stylish, this coupe is comfortable. There's a custom center console with cup holders and an AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input. There's even cold R134a air conditioning. The classic-style steering wheel gives you a great vintage feeling, and at the same time, it also provides a clear view of the upgraded Dakota Digital full gauge package.
There's plenty of style under the hood with the 302 cubic-inch V8 looking bright with the valve covers, air topper, alternator, and upgraded pulleys. Plus, this has been given performance components like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, Pertronix Flamethrower coil, and a glasspack-style dual exhaust rumbling from the rear. But more than just a good power package, this one was built to be a fine cruiser. That's why you have features like power steering and front disc brakes. There are even upgrades you don't get in many classics like the electric fan, limited slip rear end, and the four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.
This is a true icon done the way you've always wanted. But you're not the only one with James Dean dreams, so hurry up and call today!
