1949 Mercury Lead Sled
The Mercury Eight was the first model of the Ford Motor Company's Mercury marque and was produced from the 1939 through the 1951 model years. It was the only model offered by Mercury until the marque starting producing multiple series in the 1952 model year. at which point it was dropped as a model designation.
The first postwar Mercury was introduced in the 1949 model year. The engine was a flathead V8 that produced slightly more power than the then also newly-designed 1949 Ford. The styling of the Mercury Eight. when it was released in 1949. was successful in both ending the monotony of warmed-over pre-war style. and differentiating Mercury from its comparable Ford cousin. a trick that spelled sales success. Sales figures for both Ford and Mercury broke records in 1949.
In 1949. Sam Barris built the first lead sled from a 1949 Mercury Eight; the Eight became the definitive lead sled. Sam and George Barris also used the 1949 body style to build "the most famous custom car ever" the Hirohata Merc. for customer Bob Hirohata in 1953. Setting a style and an attitude. it had a "momentous effect" on custom car builders. appeared in several magazines at the time. and reappeared numerous times since. earning an honorable mention on Rod & Custom's "Twenty Best of All Time" list in 1991. The Eight remains a very popular subject for car modellers.
This is a professionally built “Lead Sled”. which was completed in 2003.
