1950 Mercury Other
Up for bids I have my 1950 Mercury chop top. It's an original 2 door coupe and titled 1950.With greatregret I have to sell this car.This car has been chopped, renched, haved,rounded, unneled, eaked, osed,scoopedand rolled. I strongly suggest you see the car for yourself before you bid. Thereis cracks in the bondo, atch panels, ings, aint loss/scratches/bubbles/defects, aps,repaintspots and filler/bondo.I would suggest you scuff and repaint the car if your looking for a more perfect version. With all that being said it's a really cool car that gets a lot of looks and questions every I time I drive it. I have adjusted the carburetor to the best of my ability. I have driven the car may miles and a coupleof trips a few hours and back from my home.
The car has a ton of new parts such as: Coker white wall radials with less than 500 mile on them, bar Lancer style hub caps, hocks (front/rear), teering wheel, nstrument cluster,EZ wiring harness, ear side glass, indshield glass, ent window glass,headlights, rake calipers, hermostat, eadlight switch, ransmissionpan gasket, eep side mirror, iper bullet studs and seatbelts (need to be installed).The car has a Camaro (don't know the year)front clip with a small block 350 with an Edelbrock carburetor and Edelbrock manifoldand rear end from thatsame car. The car has header pipes with new gaskets.The frame is original 1950 Mercury from the fire wall back. Chopped top with original back glass.It has a 1954Pontiac grill frenched in, eadlights tunneled, nbsp;frenched 1959 Caddy taillights and frenched dual antennas (not hooked up). Two nonfunctioning hood scoops have been added.The hood has been peaked and front corners rounded.The door handles and locks have been shaved and you have to reach in thru windows to open the doors as of now. The trunk does have a trunk popper locatedunder the dashinside of the car. The gas cap door has been smoothed over so yourgas fill is accessible thru thetrunk. Hood pullpop knob islocated under dash also.Battery is mounted in trunk. Battery is starting to get weak and should bereplaced. The rear bumper area has been smoothed and rolled. No rear bumper.
The car has no front passenger or driver side glass (flat glass easy to cut and install). I have window regulators that come with the car but need to be installed. The front vent windows and trackson each side were mad, ut do not open.I covered the rear seat, ackage tray, nterior door panels and rear interior side panels with apurple crushed velvet type material. I did not cover the front seat but you will get the material to doso if you want to. I made all the interior/deckpanels.The front seat is non adjustable. GM tilt streering column.There is no carpet, eadliner, r door/window/trunkrubberin the car. There is new rubber around windshield outside,rear side glass outside and new rubber trim around driver and passenger window openings and some rubber cushioning strip on trunk lid.The car has no heat or ac. No original dash gauges work (speedo, as, tc.) but does light up. You have to check the gas manually. No windshield wipers or wiper arms ( there is a wiper motor under dash thatneeds to behooked up, f it works I don't know Ihave never hooked it up). The windshield is in two pieces butted together and is new glass.The top was chopped when I purchased the car and the B pillars were slanted. Whoever did a horrible job, o pillars were made for the car and new doors had to be found, ought and cut down. I have the inside window trim for the passenger and driver windows (installed) and windshield (not installed), ut I do not have the rear passenger and driver inside windowtrim pieces.
I painted the car with Hot Rod paint in satin black. I repainted the driver side headlight area after a repair with spray can satin and tried to match the best I could. If you like the satin lookyou can get a black satin from John Deer Co.that matches perfectly for $20 a gallon no priming required. I replaced the transmission pan gasket, ut it will still leak if you let the car sit for long periods of time. The car was lowered by the removal of a couple of leaf springs. The way the exhaust pipes are routed over the rear end one ofthe pipes sometimes hits the top of therear end and makes a noise when going over large bumps. I was going to put a smallpiece of old tire over that part of the rear end to stop the noise from happening instead of rerouting the exhaust pipe but never did. Extra parts come with the car such as: extra matchingseat/panel fabric, eatbelts (new, ever installed), indow regulators, riginal 1950 Mercuryinterior door handles, nside windshield trim ( cut down and painted, ever installed) a glove box (custom made andneeds to be installed under dash). and a extra piece of inside window trim. Not pictured is the extra purplefabric, ut is included.The hood does not stay up by it's self, ou have to use a bar or whatever.
