Classic Car Overview
Youre looking at the ultimate lead sled. This 1951 Mercury Eight has been customized so much over every inch both inside and out that youll likely never going to see another one like it. So dig into the details on the V8 power, A/C interior, air ride suspension, and all the unique paintwork surrounding this detail-oriented custom. Take a long look at the body. This Mercury has all the great traits of the legendary hot rods like the frenched headlights, shaved door handles, etched glass, lake pipes, and dual spotlights. Plus, great custom elements like the floating chevron grille have been expertly integrated to make it look like they were there from day one. And of course, our favorite custom element has to be the paint. The white-hot tequila flame at the front fades into yellow before getting red at the tips. Its all highlighted further by a blue boarder thats a great dividing line to the deep blue metallic paint that underlines it all. This is such a comprehensive and custom paintjob that youre likely to win awards for this alone. But then you might also spot some more great details, like the air-brushed skeletons. At first they just look like vapor trails for the flame work, but really we think its the souls of the lesser cars this custom has consumed. When you pop the remote door opener, make sure you do it for both the front and rear door. Because once people see the cool suicide setup, youll instantly know why you want a sedan. And when they peek inside, theyll see a full custom and very coordinated setup. Up front, the white seats look fresh, and the supple leather means theyll feel great, too. The rear ones match the front pattern, and they have a movie theater-style setup, because after all, this car puts on a show. The rest of the panels and headliner also coordinate to give this a very uniform presentation. Even the exterior-matching dash has more of those air-brushed skulls for a cool custom look. This has all the best upgrades for comfort, too. It has features like power front seats, an AM/FM/CD stereo w/iPod input, full speaker upgrade, armrest center console, and ice-cold R134a air conditioning. As a true cruising machine, you get all the best driving features, including a Nardi steering wheel, tilt column, durable Teleflex gauges, and digital controls for the full Air Ride suspension. Look under the hood and be amazed. With the polished valve covers, air topper, compressor, piping, and intake, we pretty much dare you to find another component that could be turned into brightwork. And the inner fender walls continue to show you this is one evil machine! More than just look great, you have the proven power a 350 cubic-inch V8. Topped with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake, it does a fine job of making plenty of power and a sweet rumble for the dual exhaust. And a custom sedan like this is the kind of car you want to comfortably cruise everywhere. Thats why it also has features like an updated independent front suspension, three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes. And the adjustable air ride is perfect for keeping you comfortable on the open road, and then wherever you park, you get to watch jaws drop as you drop this Mercury low to the ground. With only 2,604 miles on the whole build, this Mercury lead sled not only looks fantastic, but also this compete custom build was made to run strong all day long. Dont miss the all-around stunner.
