How do you get ahead of the Mercury Lead Sled guys? How about reaching back even further with a fully custom hot rod built from Mercury's iconic designs. This 1940 Mercury eight-window coupe has all those unmistakable custom touches that everyone loves, and it's a unique standout wherever it goes. Best of all, you'll love the long list of features: from the A/C interior to the enhanced V8 power.
This is related to one of the most iconic Ford street machines, just in a rarer form. So, it does a great job of showing off its history while also giving the coupe some modern flair. That starts with the burgundy paint. It has a rich look and a deep gloss to attract plenty of attention, and as people get closer, real enthusiasts will marvel at the classic single-stage application. The special Mercury grille, teardrop headlight bezels, full-length trim, and smooth chrome bumpers make for a great classic package. Of course, there are plenty of the right custom touches, too. The smooth rear end, frenched taillights, and power license plate holder give this a sporty look. And the while those color-matched steelie wheels have a great classic look with the two-piece trim, it's also worth taking a closer look. It has a staggered stance and wide rear tires to really give this one a hint of intimidation.
Step inside, and even more custom touches await. The plush bucket seats are the first indication that there was plenty of money invested in this build. And there are nice details, like the center armrest and added back seat. The driver gets a highly-stylized wood and chrome Lecarra sports steering wheel on a tilt column. Beyond that is a digital dashboard with a glowing red that looks nice against the coordinating burgundy. In fact, this Mercury has plenty of electronic upgrades no one could even dream of in 1940. This includes power windows, an AM/FM/CD stereo, overhead console lights, and cold-blowing air conditioning.
The copper-like top of the radiator might give this a vintage-style look, but beyond that, this one proudly shows off more modern power. It has a 350 cubic-inch crate motor, and it looks show-ready with all its polished components. Plus, this V8 has been enhanced with a twin side draft air intake, Demon four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, electric fan, and headers that add power while feeding a glasspack-style dual exhaust. Not only is this a powerful package, but also it's built to be a more modern cruiser. That's why you have nice driving features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front.
Powerful, unique, and easy to drive, this is street machine that attracts attention wherever it goes. But it also has all the right modern features to be as comfortable for whatever you want. This is the complete custom build that ticks every one of your desires. Call today!!!
