135847 / 1950 Mercury Coupe
http://www.rkmotorscharlotte.com/sales/inventory/active/1950%20Mercury%20Co upe/135847 Dressing a modern small block and four forward gears in a razor-sharp restoration, this sophisticated Mercury Eight is more than just sweet eye candy. And if you’re the kind of buyer who’s searching for a stunning, all-steel hot rod, we can’t think of anything that offers more style for less money! Storming the scene just a few short years ago, this slick street rod has been lovingly finessed to the absolute highest standards. The smooth surfaces that make up the car’s voluptuous profile are comprised of clean Henry Ford steel that’s been completely stripped, carefully aligned and laboriously block-sanded. That solid shell, dressed in PPG gold base, basted in PPG Cinnamon Candy and sealed in PPG clear, has been buffed to a wet-looking shine. And today, this Merc rolls as one excellent-looking custom that’s completely devoid of filler, questionable seams, strange bulges or anything else that might demerit its otherwise superior construction. Lift the car’s domed hood and you’ll find 5.7 liters of spry LS1 small block that, produced in 1998, creates upwards of 305 horsepower. Behind that mill, a GM 4L60E 4-speed jerks a familiar Ford 8-inch axle. That drivetrain rolls in classic Ford skeleton that’s been augmented with a quality Fat Man front-clip. That clip frames Unisteer power rack-and-pinion steering. Power front disc and rear drum brakes provide predictably solid stops. And, at the corners of the car, 15-inch Billet Specialties wheels twist 225/75 Dean Alpha 365 whitewalls. This lights-out Mercury is one of the coolest cruisers on the planet!

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #59: 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E 427
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com/store - This week, we're bringing you an often overlooked muscle car, the 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E. These were sporty but comfortable, and the GT-E bought you a 7-liter V8 to make things interesting. Most were the smooth 428 V8, but some were ordered with the far less subtle 427 side oiler... like the one in this video. The 427 was rated at 390 HP and has a great rumble, but the car is refined enough to drive and enjoy every day. The Brothers Collection is home to several rare Mercury cats, this is one of the favorites! -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Chceck out: "Muscle Car Of The Week Video Episode #182: 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 454 - The Last One?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pczqb76mhw -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-
