ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

There's a reason why '49 Mercs are so coveted -- they were one of the first redesigns after the war and you'll be hard pressed to find someone to say FoMoCo didn't get it right. But what really sets this car apart is its cross-generational appeal. The platform lends itself perfectly to customization that fits any taste -- a trend that started the minute these sleds rolled off the showroom floor. Young or old. everyone wants to own. ride in or take a picture with THE quintessential post-war custom.

As you approach this '49 Mercury you find that the stance is perfect. slightly lowered and wearing beautiful chrome wheel covers. It's been nosed and decked but otherwise the body retains a clean stock look. The paint shows well with few flaws and good gaps; however we would characterize it as an older restoration. Much of the trim is original but holding up well for a driver. Glass is in good condition with some newer and some older rubbers. A couple panes have been subtly andartfully etched. The wiper arms have been removed for that West Coast hot rod look; the fender skirts are included should you choose to install them.

The interior is clean and tidy with a tasteful tweed covering the seats and door panels. The dash remains mostly original and in good condition. Not all of the original gauges are functioning but more modern and accurate gauges have been fitted under the dash. A newer Alpine CD/AM/FM stereo with USB and aux input has been fitted and sounds great. It's a comfortable place to spend time and retains enough originality that you still know what you are driving and why.

When you pop the hood on this car you get a breath of fresh air. We have a rule at Motorcar Studio -- no Fords with Chevy motors allowed. Under the hood you find a gorgeous 255 Flathead punched . 30 over with three deuces. Edlebrock heads and Fenton headers. Even better. it's mated to a T-5 five speed manual. Although we don't have a rebuild history on this mill. based onthe way she looks and runs you know it's a pretty fresh build with all of the right parts. If you rodded this car in the 50's or 60's this is how you would have done it. And that is what makes this '49 stand out from the crowd of purple. chopped. shaved. 350-powered competitors -- it feels real. unmolested. classic and classy.

Recent service has included all fluid changes. choke and throttle cable replacement and brake service. It's ready to be enjoyed or shown by the next owner. For more information about this 1949 Mercury Coupe available at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta. please call 404-692-5250. We always welcome your inspector. Worldwide Shipping and financing options available.
