1950 Mercury Other
Ground up restoration, started and completed by me. Frenched headlights, and ‘51 Ford tail lights. 67 GTO Pontiac frame, modified to fit the car; Pontiac positive traction rear-end; power disc brakes; and rack and pinon steering. Leg pipes run the length of each side and have a shiny chrome finish. Tinted electric power windows, trunk and dummy spotlights, and diamond back radial tires with 2" white walls complete the exterior look. Under the hood is a 350 ZZ4 V8 motor paired with a TURBO 400 automatic transmission. The motor has some nice chrome highlights, valve covers, and an Edelbrock air bonnet. The interior is loaded: 1964 Ford steering wheel, Galaxy dash, 1964 Mercury gauges, vintage AC/Heat controls, and after market AM/FM radio with power antenna. The interior seats, panels, and truck are rolled and pleated white vinyl, done by my wife, a seamstress. All of the electrical on the car works perfectly via a new EZ wiring system. At the time of this posting, it has only 2000 miles on it.
