1949 Mercury Custom Convertible KustomWe are listing this Very Rare 1949 Mercury Convertible owned by ledgendary Kustom car builder Ken Erickson, If you do not know the Erickson name in Kustoms just Goggle it !!!!
This is a REAL RUST FREE 1949 MERCURY CONVERTIBLE !!!!Its sit's on the factory very special Convertible chassie that is heavily reinforced plus a stronger X member !!!! Not a weaker coupe / sedan chassie or even weaker late model chassie swap !!!!Our father Ken bought it from the late Mercury man, Bill Papke, West Coast Kustom socal rep withshow heritage dating back to the mid 1970's when it was first built and has alway been garaged since !!!!Even the floor pans undersides are still painted in the 70s show car candie blue and are totally smooth with No Undercoating to hide anything !!!!
Not only will this Merc steal any show it drives amazingly well plus it's 429 Merc Cyclone is tire smooking fast if thats your thing !!!!Look close at these pics and try to look past the very radical Candies & Flake paint and art work laid down and you will see there are tons of very tasteful Old School kustom body mods, plus they are done in lead !!!! Plus the accessories are real Mercury steel skirts. Real Appleton small spot lights !!!!Not just the body mods are tasteful Old School kustom take a look at the Vett grill you will see its has been made longer and the bumpers have been totally smoothed end to end !!!!This Merc drives & runs very well. It's powered by a very rare 1970 Mercury Cyclone 429 same as the $$$ 429 Cobra Jet !!!! The engin has a mid cam with a very light lope coupled to a big C6 auto trans, A big 9" rear axle and the front suspension from the Mercury Cyclone with big disc brakes so you are basicly rolling on a 1970 Mercury Cyclone but with a true 1949 Mercury Convertible frame so you can not get better than a Mercury in a Mercury !!!!Air Ride Suspension front & rear, Will lay the frame rails on the ground, plus it will lift up over 8" thanks to the hightest quaitly Slam Specialty air bags avail so steep driveways / speed bumps are no issue and did I say it drives amazingly well plus it handles very well thanks to our Supreme Cruiser rear suspension setup. This Merc drives even smoother and handles better on air ride than it did when it was on springs !!!!
It also has,Power brakes,Power steering,
6 way power front bench seat,All 4 side power windows,Power Folding Top,Tilt steering column,Large 12 volt air compressor,5 gal Air tank,22 gal 70s Mustang fuel tank,Real 1957 Caddy hub caps,

The reason this rare Convertible Merc is being offered is my father Ken is getting to old to enjoy driving it and is on a limited budget.A stock 49 Merc vertt value in this condition per NADA is $122k and this one should be well over that with a few thing redone. Mostly a new exaust system, Trunk compartment finished off, Engin compartment detailed and simple tlc
