We are offering for sale this very cool 1950 Mercury Coupe. This car was restored many years ago and does show some wear consistent with the age of the restoration but maintains the cool factor of being a steel. unchopped. flatty powered Merc. There is some bondo that was used during restoration. but the major areas are good solid steel. The doors. hood. rear decklid are super solid. As is are the floors. inner and outer rockers and frame. There is a small rust area in the spare tire well. but the rest of the trunk pan is good and solid. The glass is scratch and crack free and all opens and closes as it should. Chrome is in good original shape and all of the trim is present and straight with the exception of the very front of the driver's door beltline trim that has a small kink. Details of the imperfections are shown in pictures hosted in the link below.
The 24 stud flathead engine runs smooth and stays cool at about 190 degrees during cruising. The mechanical fan provides plenty of air flow while driving. but if you find yourself stuck in traffic. the auxiliary electric fan can be turned on to keep things cool. The engine has period correct speed parts including Offenhauser aluminum heads and intake. triple Stromberg 97 carbs. and Fenton headers. Dual exhaust running to twin 3" tips exiting under the rear bumper make for a deep and mellow sound. The manual choke makes cold starts a breeze and once warm. the engine idles at 700-800 RPM all day long. A Tremec T5. nbsp;5 speed manual trans is mated to the flatty and allows the car to travel at freeway speeds with ease. This car has been road tripped to many NSRA events across the country through the years and goes down the road smooth. straight and true.
The seats are done with stock appearing covers that could be original. but we assume they have been redone. Tight loop gray carpeting is in excellent shape throughout the interior and the floor has been dynomatted to cut down on noise and vibration. Door panels and headliner are all in excellent shape as well. The dash was restored and has functioning gauges. with the exception of the factory water temp gauge. Dual under dash mounted Auto Meter water temp gauges keep tabs on the cooling system and a column mounted tach lets you watch the engine revs. The speedometer does run a little fast. but does work. A Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo provides the tunes and allows you the ability to connect your USB. AUX and Bluetooth devices as well. An under dash electric trunk popper actuates the shaved trunk lid.
