From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

STK 2667 1949 Mercury Eight Resto-Mod The Mercury Eight was the first and only model produced by Mercury from 1939 through 1951. The first post-war model was introduced in 1949 with distinctive ponton styling. Its restyled, fully enclosed body ended the monotony of warmed-over pre-war styles and sales figures for both Ford and Mercury broke records in 1949. During this era, and beyond, the stylish Lead Sled Merc Eight has always been popular with customizers. This 1949 Mercury Eight resto-rod coupe has been fully restored with many custom and mechanical upgrades. (There is a large folder provided with the car that fully documents the recent restoration project.) The owner asserts that our Merc rides on a 1974 Chevelle chassis. Its exterior received a professional 2-stage finish accented with period-correct fender skirts, Steelie wheels w/trim rings and whitewall radials, 18x8s in the front and 20x91/2s in the rear. Doors and trunk are operated with poppers and all chrome is in excellent condition. The stunning interior - including the headliner - has been beautifully recreated using high-grade Cinnamon vinyl. A factory dash is now fitted with a complete set of AutoMeter Vintage gauges and a Sony AM/FM/CD stereo system for your listening pleasure. Climate control is managed by a Hurricane CAP-1100 A/C system from Old Air Products and the handsome Mark 40 2-spoke wheel is mounted on a tilt-steering column. Our Mercury is powered by a rebuilt Chevy 348ci W block. The vintage 348/409 motors have a wonderful old-school sound perfect for this car. The intake system was upgraded with an Edelbrock manifold and 580cfm Holley dual-feed four-barrel carburetor. It is backed by a GM 700-R4 OD automatic transmission with custom shifter. A Griffin aluminum radiator w/electric fan has also been installed and all electrics have been upgraded to a 12-volt system completely rewired with a new harness. Steering is power assisted and brakes are power disc/drum units. This Mercury Eight Lead Sled Coupe is a retro-custom that has been carefully thought out and meticulously built - it is literally timeless. ALL VEHICLES SOLD AS IS
