This historic car was one of the first cars to establish Chip Foose as the ultimate car designer of our lifetime.   One of his early designs. this car was built in Boyd Coddington's famous shop during the mid 90's over a 3 year period from 1993-96.   In 1996. once completed. the car won the prestigious Harry Bradley Design Award.

This famous Mercury was housed for many years in the Petersen Museum Collection. and is in as-built condition.   Typical of a Foose car. the design features amazing lines with smooth proportions and flow.   The chrome is perfect. all gaps are perfect. the leather interior is a clean and contemporary design. and the paint is deep and close to perfect.   This is indeed a world-class designed and built automobile.

This Mercury Custom is the measuring stick by which all Mercury sleds are judged.   Lesser cars without the pedigree are selling for over $150. 00.  

This car is a true masterpiece. designed and built by the most famous customizer of our time.   It is a truly historic car that highlights the beginning of Chip Foose's career. and as such. belongs in any collection as a keystone piece.
