We are offering for sale thisvery cool 1950 Mercury Coupe.This carwas restored manyyears ago and does show somewear consistent with the age of the restoration but maintains the cool factor ofbeing a steel, unchopped, flathead powered Merc. I personally have put close to 1000 miles on this car and can attest to its reliability and excellent road manners.

The 24 stud flathead engine runs smooth and stays cool at about 190 degrees during cruising. The engine has period correct speed partsincluding Offenhauser aluminum heads and intake, triple Stromberg 97 carbs, andFenton headers. Dual exhaust running to twin 3" tips exitingunder the rear bumper make for a deep and mellow sound.A Tremec T5,5 speed manual trans is mated to the flattyand 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 donewith 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 ofthe factory water temp gauge. Dualunder 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.
