SORC 2012 1973 Mercury Montego GT

This is something of a tribute video to Chris Bischof's video that got me really excited about this race way back in 2003. My average on the northbound leg was 90.004 mph, which was good enough for second place in the class, but my average of 89.722 on the return leg resulted in a 9th place finish.

1986 Pontiac 2+2 at the Inaugural Loup 2 Loup Open Road Race, now part of the Sandhills Open Road Challenge. This was our 11th year competing in the SORC, but we have never been in an Open Road race with only a 120 mph tech speed, so of course, we broke tech.





Weed Wacking at the 2004 Sandhills Open Road Challenge
Off course Excursion at the 2004 Sand Hills Open Road Race. We were In the 115 but ran up with the rally computer set on a CAS of 120 mph to see what it would be like. We were right on 120 but slid off the road 2 miles from the finish to average 119.6 mph (3 seconds slow) for that leg. We came in 2nd to a Viper GTS ACR in the 115 class.

1972 Mercury montego GT
Our 72 Montego Gt thats awaiting restoration. This car was suppose to be the 72 cyclone spoiler GT but Mercury changed their minds and made it the Montego GT. Most came with bench seats and 302 small blocks.This one is rare with the hounds tooth bucket seat interior which is white with black carpet, console and rallye dash.It had the rare rim blow steering wheel which has long since disappeared a long time ago. Also this one has the rare 351 Cobra Jet Motor option. I cant find any info on the half white vinyl top. its the only one ive ever seen this way. There is not another one like this on the Montego Gt registry website.Its quite possible it might be one of one which would make it the only one with this vinyl top option.Please dont ask me if you can buy it. Its not for sale now or in the future.

SOLD 1950 Mercury Coupe Hot Rod for sale by Corvette Mike Anaheim California 92807
1950 Mercury Custom Coupe Candy Apple Red w/White interior. If you get a bunch of gearheads in a room together and they get to talking about what the ultimate hot rod is, inevitably there will be three constants on the list; the '32 Ford Hi Boy Roadster, the '32 Ford 3 window coupe and the subject of this ad; the iconic '50 Merc coupe. The quintessential lead sled; the Merc defined the full bodied hot rod in the '50's. Its flowing lines were a vast canvas on which customizers could practice what was a fairly new art form back in the late '40's, early 50's. Chopped, channeled, frenched and decked. That's what you did if you wanted your Merc to stand out in a crowd! And the sled being offered here does that in spades! Designed to emulate customs made famous by legends like Sam and George Barris, Gene Winfield and many others, this rolling piece of art has all of the elements mentioned above, in addition to being wrapped in stunning Candy Apple Red paint, white tuck and roll interior with a multi-carb'd Flathead under the hood! Held in a vast private collection consisting of only the finest custom automobiles, the work was done by Steve's Auto Restorations using elements of Chevrolet, Pontiac, Cadillac, Olds & Kaiser. The hardtop body has no "B" pillar, the headlights have been "Frenched", hood corners have been rounded and of course it wouldn't be a '50's custom without Appleton spots! The interior features white "Tuck and Roll", laminated plastic knobs and a '57 Olds steering wheel, power steering, a hidden audio system and solenoid operated doors, windows and trunk The business end features a full dress Motorhead City 1950 Flathead engine featuring an Offenhauser intake and heads and three Stromberg '97 carbs. House of Color supplied the Candy Apple over Gold exterior and "Von Dutch" style pinstriping. Wides whites with full Cadillac wheel covers completes the deal! It's an investment grade custom that spells upside in it's fortunate new owners future. It was good enough for James Dean! Stk #N/A





1972 Mercury Montego Hardtop Red SilvSprOcala011213
Beautiful restoration! As you can see from the list in the video, some engine mods were made, but everything looks original. Cale Yarborough raced cars like this at the time. The paint and interior are perfection!

Mercury Cars of 1949 to 1951
The Mercury car model has been around since 1939 and was introduced as a mid range priced vehicle by Edsel Ford. Cars built between 1949 and 1951, would in later years prove to be very popular amongst the Hot Rod Car Enthusiasts. They would reshape the steel to produce cars that would set a new standard for Customized Vehicles. Early model Mercury cars of 1949 to 1951 had a 90 degree V type, "L" head 8 cylinder engine with a displacement of 255.4 cubic inches. These engines put out 112 horsepower at 3600 R.P.M. Later model cars of 1955 replaced the "L" engine with the "Y" block V-8 producing between 188 and 198 horsepower dependant on the engine type for that year. This slide show is a part of a series of pictures of cars from different car shows that I've attended here in Southern California U.S.A.
