1950 Mercury MERCURY 8 Deluxe

IM SELLING THE SWEETEST 50 MERCURY I HAVE EVER SEEN. IT DRIVES AS NEW, AND THE A/C MAKES IT A VERY COMFORTABLE DRIVER. A TIGHT CAR, NO WIND NOISE, NO BODY ROLL,AND WITH LOTS OF POWER. IT HAS HAD A FRAME OFF PROFESSIONAL RESTORATION JUST OVER 9,000 MILES AGO WITH NEW BODY MOUNTS, NEW GAS TANK, LINES AND BRAKE LINES, BUSHINGS AND SUSPENSSION PARTS, BRAKES, ETC. THE CAR HAS BEEN LOWERED. IT HAS WHITE WALL RADIALS ON IT WITH 1957 CADILLAC HUB CAPS. IT HAS REAL DUAL SPOTLIGHTS. ALL OF THE GAUGES HAVE BEEN REBUILT AND WORK GOOD. HAS WORKING SUN TACH .THE ODOMETER WAS SET TO 0 WHEN RESTORED SOME YEARS AGO. IT HAS ABOUT 9600 MILES ON IT SO FAR SINCE RESTORATION.THE CAR HAS A 390 HOLLEY CARBURATOR AND UPGRADED INTAKE, AND EXUAST ON IT. THE PICTURES ARE CURRENT AND TELL THE STORY, SO BUY WITH CONFIDENCE. THE ENGINE WAS REBUILT AND BALANCED, WITH THE UPGRADED OIL PUMP SYSTEM INSTALLED INSIDE THE ENGINE,THAT MAKE THE FLATHEADS PERFORM BETTER THAN WHEN NEW, AND INCREASE POWER AS WELL. THE ENGINE REBUILD COST WAS OVER 7,000. DOLLARS ALONE. I HAVE ALL RECIEPTS. THE NEW RADIATOR IS HUGE, AND HAS AN ELECTRIC FAN. THE INTERIOR IS EXCELLENT AND HAD A NEW HEADLINER INSTALLED LAST YEAR. IT GOES DOWN THE ROAD AT CRUSING SPEEDS OF 65 MPH ALL DAY LONG, DUE TO THE 9 INCH FORD REAR WITH 325 GEARS, UNLIKE MOST FLATHEADS THAT STRAIN TO RUN 65 MPH AT ALL. THERE IS NO RUST IN THIS CAR, UNDER IT OR ANYWHERE ELSE. SEE PICTURES OF BOTTOM PANS, ROCKERS, REAR PANS, FENDERS AND FLOOR BOARDS. IT HAS HAD SOUND DEADENER INSTALLED.THE WIRING HARNESS HAS BEEN REPLACED, MOST GLASS WAS REPLACED, WITH THE TINTED GOOD STUFF, RUBBER AND FELT AS WELL.ALL CHROME HAS BEEN RESTORED OR RECHROMED. LOOK AT THE PICTURES.THE ONLY NEGATIVE THING I CAN SAY ABOUT THE CAR IS THAT THE PAINT HAS A FEW SMALL BUBBLING SPOTS APPEARING ALONG THE BOTTOM OF DOORS AND FENDERS, AS IS COMMON AFTER SEVERAL YEARS OF BEING PAINTED,BUT THEY ARE NOT BAD. SEE PICTURES.THIS MERCURY DRIVES AND SHIFTS GREAT, AND CAN BE DRIVEN ANYWHERE WITH CONFIDENCE. IT HAS MADE SEVERAL TRIPS TO OTHER STATES THIS YEAR, WITH NO ISSUES. IT HAS AN UPGRADED AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM INSTALLED AND IT WORKS GREAT. CD CHANGER IN THE TRUNK.THE STEERING WHEEL IS THE 16 INCH NEW CORRECT MERCURY WHEEL AND STEERS LIKE A DREAM. AND OF COURSE ALL BULBS, AND ELECTRICALS HAVE BEEN CHANGED OVER TO THE 12 VOLT SYSTEM. IF YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED A NICE ORIGINAL 50 MERC WITH UPGRADES, NOWS YOUR CHANCE TO BUY IT BEFORE SOMEONE ELSE DOES, AND YOU KNOW WHAT IT COST TO DO A FRAME OFF RESTORATION, AND THE CHROME, AND THE INTERIOR, AND PAINT, AND RE-WIRING AND LIGHTS, AND SUSPENSSION, AND ALL THE MAN HOURS. YOU COULD NOT POSSIBLY BUILD THIS MERCURY FOR WHAT IM SELLING IT FOR, EVEN IF YOU HAD A NICE TIGHT BODY TO START WITH. THIS IS A PROVEN DRIVER AND SUPER NICE PIECE OF AMERICAN CAR ART GUYS,THAT NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE, AND ARE HARD TO FIND IN THIS SHAPE, AND AT THIS PRICE.YOU CAN FLY IN & DRIVE HER HOME, OR I WILL HELP YOUR SHIPPER LOAD IT CORRECTLY AND CAREFULLY. CLEAR N.C.TITLE IN HAND. INTERESTING TRADES IN THE $30K RANGE CONSIDERED. BID TO WIN IT, AS IT WILL SELL QUICKLY. CARS THIS NICE ALWAYS DO, DONT LET IT GET AWAY IF YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED A NICE ONE.
