1949 FULL CUSTOM MERCURY

One of the East Coast's premier custom car builders. Joe Maneri. chopped and customized this car in 1986-87.     Since then it has been driven (never tailored or broken down) to over 30 car shows in Indiana. Ohio. Michigan and numerous East Coast venues.    It is still running a fully dressed '51 Merc flathead engine with Overdrive (and a non-overdrive rear-end).   This combination lets Blue Moon run over 12 hours a day at 70 mph with the engine thinking it is only going 50.  

 

If you like to drive your cars – this car is a driver.    Front-end was recently rebuilt with Jamco 3" lowered springs and heavy- duty sway bar. new king-pins & tie-rods.    Rear is lowered 4" with Posey's flattened springs.    Dual stainless steel exhaust with Brockman Mellowtone steel-packs.     It has a unique pair of independent electric fuel pumps. so if one fails on a long trip. nbsp;just flip a switch to the other one. avoiding repairs on the road.    It even has working curb feeler gauges to protect the right side when parking.

 

James Dean drove a “cool” customized '49 Merc in “Rebel without a Cause” (1955) and created a Legend.    The James Dean Run car show became a traditional gathering point for '49-51 Mercs in Fairmount. IN every September.    Blue Moon was driven to this show over 20 times in 30 years with mechanical upgrades throughout:
