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
Total Production of the 2003-2004 Mercury Marauder was 11,052
2003 MERCURY MARAUDER -- RARE FULL SIZE MUSCLE SEDAN
From 2003 to 2004, Ford resurrected the Marauder name as a high-performance
version of the Mercury Grand Marquis sedan. Although the Mercury division
was most directly a competitor to Buick (and before that, Oldsmobile), the
design of this Marauder drew many parallels to the 1994--1996 Chevrolet
Impala SS and the later 2006-present Dodge Charger SRT-8 in being a
contemporary full-size "muscle sedan", and both being derived from a police
vehicle: the Marauder from the Ford Crown Victoria, and the Impala SS from
the Chevrolet Caprice. The Marauder had a naturally aspirated 4.6 L V8
DOHC Ford Modular engine producing 302 hp and 318 ft·lbf of torque. In
contrast to the Grand Marquis, the interior of the Marauder featured front
bucket seats and a floor shifter with a center console; leather seats were
standard. Instead of the simulated wood trim seen in the Grand Marquis, the
Marauder substituted simulated satin aluminum trim in its place. The
instrument cluster was Marauder-specific, with satin aluminum gauges (with
a 140-mph speedometer borrowed from the Ford Police Interceptor) and the
pressed electrical board to control them are model-exclusive. To make room
for the tachometer, the oil-pressure gauges and voltmeter were moved to the
center console. The 2003--2004 Marauder sales fell short of corporate
forecasts, and after a production run of 11,052 vehicles, the Marauder was
discontinued at the end of 2004. For comparison, Mercury produced 179,723
examples of its Grand Marquis counterpart during the same time. The number
of Marauders produced per year in each color breaks down as follows: 2003
-- Total: 7838 328 Dark Pearl Blue, 417 Silver Birch, 7093 Black. 2004 --
Total: 3214, 980 Dark Toreador Red, 997 Silver Birch, 1237 Black. So, you
see here a great edition of a Mercury, not only a rare Maurauder but a
full size muscle sedan as well. Thanks very much for viewing this 2003
Mercury Marauder sedan.
