1949 Mercury Convertible


49merconver

With this 1949 Mercury Convertible you have to start outside with this dropped cruiser. The stance is just right; far from stock yet high enough to clear all obstacles. Up front you'll find original, re-chromed headlight bezels, the mammoth toothed grille and a re-chromed bumper. New headlights hide under their hoods while classic pin-striping rides on the edges of the hood and fenders. Clean windshield trim surrounds the new glass, framed left and right by dual old school spotlights. The side profile is amazing with the faux lake pipes at the bottom, fender skirts out back and the long, low profile mere inches from the ground.

Underneath you'll find clean sheetmetal covered in undercoating. There's a '72 Nova front end with disc brakes, a rebuilt turbo 350 transmission, a new exhaust system with glasspacks, new brake hardware, fresh fuel system components and, of course, orange neon. It's not much to look at, but (a) it'll protect the floor pans and deaden sound wherever you go and (b) the car sits so low you can't see underneath anyway!

Open the hood and check out the docile Chevrolet 350 inside. There's a nice burble from the exhaust at idle, and there's plenty of torque, but it's no race car—this is a vehicle to be seen in, after all. Edelbrock valve covers and a polished aluminum air cleaner dominate your initial view until you refocus on the polished stainless firewall and radiator covers. Flexible chromed hose covers and finned spark plug covers add sparkle and look period correct. There's a Professional Products polished intake manifold and Edelbrock carb setup for fuel and a Mallory distributor and Taylor wireset for spark.

Price on this 1949 Mercury Convertible $79,900
