      '49 Mercury KUSTOM- An American ICON that has been EXTREMLY POPULAR ever since James Dean drove one in " Rebel without a cause " !!! If you are from "BACK IN THE DAY" or If you would LIKE TO BE . HERE IS YOUR CHANCE !!!!   THEE CAR every "COOL GUY" DROVE and EVERY YOUNG GIRL'S HEART FLUTTERED  as he cruised into the local hang-out . You CAN GO BACK to a MUCH BETTER TIME in American history by merley TURNING THE KEY on this PRO-BUILT example of the breed !!!
       the OH SO POPULAR 350 chevy small block V8 with automatic Transmission. Power Steering and Power DISC Brakes . The '71 Monte Carlo sub-frame with power Disc Brakes and Power Steering make her handle and STOP like a MODERN CAR . She sports a four link coil spring rear suspension with the rear end also from the 71 Monte Carlo and she will get you down the highways and byways of our great Country in GRAND STYLE !!!. Built by the FAMOUS Canadian kustom car builder Jim Bailie ( look him up !  Jim Bailie Canada ) . She JUST came in and she is SWEET !!!
       This BEAUTY has had SO MANY body modifications that are SO SUBLTLE you actually have to LOOK . but . FIRST . She is painted in a  Sunset Blue with a KNOCK OUT Multi-Color Flame job that is REALLY NICE !!! The Blue and White Roll and Pleat interior LOOKS 50's PERFECT and COMFORTABLE as your favorite chair !!! We DO have an album covering a good part of the build .
       Now . body mods. I'll give 'ya a FEW and see if you can spot the rest . LOOK AT ALL THE BODY LINES -- the FIT and FINISH of the metal work on the car is nothing short of OUTSTANDING !!! Of course . She has the " usual " nose and deck . and the PERFECT TOP CHOP with the SLANTED DOOR PILLARS !!! And here's a few MORE . Starting at the front end . the Hood has been peaked and extended and re-shaped to fit the custom grill cavity with a custom grill built by Jim. the ENTIRE front end was re-shaped to give it a "movie" car look like the" Batmobile". "Green Hornet" or " Dick Tracey" type of movie car with the headlights dropped down ( and they have removable COVERS to HIDE THEM COMPLETLY !! ) and the custom Grille/Grille cavity . A custom front rolled pan was created to match the contours of the re-shaped front end. Jim PEAKED the hood and installed a PEAKED one-pice windshield and also PEAKED the roof . and then he moved on to RE- SHAPE the front and rear wheel arches that are a NICE touch . he then installed a SUNKEN MIRROR in the door that when closed keeps the body lines as SMOOTH as glass !!! . then he added sunken door handles ( YES !!! -- a Kustom with DOOR HANDLES that are as COOL AS IT GETS !!!!) . The EXTENDED rocker panels give her that EXTREMELY LOW LOOK . The triple exit side pipes are channeled thru the rocker panels. Then he moved to the rear window and SUNK the window and created a pair of PEAKED trailing edges . THEN --- onto the the rear of the car ----- The trunk has been SHORTENED and re-shaped to meet the Jim Bailie created rolled rear pan with frenched license plate ( oh . frenched license plate and frenched antenna on her too !! ) . Next was a SEXTUPLET of tail lights expertly frenched into the lower rear 1/4 panels . now YOU LOOK and see all the modifications to this MERCURY KUSTOM that was created by ONE OF THE BEST METAL--SHAPERS ON THE PLANET !!! Check him out . Jim Bailie customs -- Canada . He has now passed away and our guess is like most things that have been created by a REAL ARTIST the value on her HAS TO ESCALATE BIG TIME !!!
     The car was built in the late 70's By Jim Bailie and has been DRIVEN to many show/cruises over the years and has done WELL at them . as a matter of fact-- WE took it to the Lead East show this year ( over 200 miles that weekend- and the people crawled ALL OVER IT !! ) and she cruised with NO PROBLEMS !! She does show some wear -- chips. etc. so she is NOT PERFECT but still presents VERY WELL and is still one COOL KUSTOM you can get out of and be PROUD !!  .
     We reserve the right to end the auction early as she is also for sale on our collector car lot here in New Jersey . We ship WORLD WIDE and can get you FINANCING with good credit .   You may CALL US at 856 764 9300 for questions 9 to 6 weekdays and 9 to 4 Saturday New jersey Time .
    LET THE GAMES BEGIN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  ;-)
