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

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.

1977 Ford Lincoln Mercury Grand Marquis
This is the fourth 1977 Mercury Grand Marquis I've owned since 1985. They have all had the same drive-train combination: 460 with 2.50 axle ratio. In the mid-80's when both GM and Ford products had gotten so bad, I was trying to think of what car in the 70's had consistently had good quality and was big and powerful as well, short of a Lincoln and I arrived at the Marquis--a Lincoln in everything but name. I owned my first one from August of '85 to April of '86, then traded it on an identical yellow one with 10,000 fewer miles (51,000) and drove it until Nov. 1990 when it had 112,000 miles on it. I traded it for a '72 Mercury Marquis which was nice, but gave a lot of trouble and got rid of it in 1991 for a '73 Olds 88. Didn't have another '77 Grand Marquis until October 1998. Back in 2002, when I was in my third one, a brown one owned from 1998 to 2005, a friend found this one on eBay, located in Oklahoma, with 41K miles on it, still in the original family. He won it with a bid of $2,000. I rode with him from Dallas to Norman, OK to pick it up. It had sat inside the original owner's garage for nearly ten years. He had it taken to a Lincoln/Mercury dealership and spent $1,500 having every single thing that deteriorated with age replaced: all tune-up components, gas tank, tires, you name it, it was on the invoice. Then he gave it to his son, who tired of it after about six months and 5,000 miles because of its huge appetite for gasoline. I drove it part of the way back and instantly realized it was the nicest one I had ever driven and told my friend to give me first right of refusal if he ever wanted to sell it. I sold my third one in 2005 and bought this one in August, 2006 with about 45K miles on it--it now has 50,000 miles. None of my other GM's had had the dish wheels and I especially wanted one with them. This car lacks two things that I've seen on all the others I've ever come across--the rubber bumper protection group, which was an option, and remote control for the right outside mirror. On the drive back, I instinctively reached for the lever I always reached for on my other cars...but there was only an empty space! I can't for the life of me imagine why something as small as that would not be made standard equipment. To this day, the car runs flawlessly, returning probably 11 MPG overall. With 35 years hindsight, it's easy to see now that the Ford/Lincoln/Mercury automobiles were the best constructed vehicles of the 1970's, a decade known for some of the poorest quality automobiles ever built. When 1975 arrived, with the redesigned Mercurys and similar Ford LTD's in place, the company was in such bad financial condition it couldn't afford another redesign for 1977 as GM was planning, and indeed soldiered on through the 1978 model year with cars identical to those introduced in 1975. Those 75's were well built with good quality appointments both inside and out in contrast to the shoddy cars GM and Chrysler were turning out. Especially GM with its stick-on trim beginning in '74, plastic extensions that failed within five years, etc. Mercury had enjoyed a much higher trim level during most of the 70's and even a slightly longer wheelbase than Fords, much more Lincoln-esque in feel. In '79, Mercury reverted back to being nothing more than a re-badged Ford, a status it has retained ever since. Although these cars look the same from '75-'78, each year has a slightly different standard engine due to the ever changing government emissions and gas mileage regulations--CAFE was started in 1975. This applies only to the Grand Marquis--'75 has a 460 standard, '76 has 400 standard with 460 optional, '77 has 460 standard and '78 has a 351 standard with both 400 and 460's as options. The 460 is the only engine to have--it was Ford's last and best big block, comprising the 385 engine family of 370 (light trucks only), 429 and 460. They didn't have a lot of horsepower by 1977, but they still had massive torque. They were designed to be adequate for motor homes and trucks and are only loafing when driving a 4,700 lb. passenger car. The 400 engine was a replacement for the far superior 390, designed for low emissions and little else. It has only modest power for its size and none of the built-in durability of the 429/460 engines. The idea of a 351 engine in a car this size is ludicrous, but in the late 70's, the companies were doing everything they could to eke out one or two more miles per gallon in a government test, but a 351 wold destroy any of the enjoyment potential of a car of this weight and class.





1975 Mercury Grand Marquis Commercial - Featuring Arthur Hill
Arthur Hill is the spokesperson in this Mercury advertisement. Arthur Hill was the star of the TV show "Owen Marshall, Counselor of Law" which aired from 1971 till 1974. The Grand Marquis was completely restyled for 1974 and would remain basically unchanged until the 1979 model year. This features the "close the door and look at the seat not wobble test"? Now that's a test I've never seen before!!!! But clearly a sign of quality! lol This commercial also features older footage of 1973 Mercury vs 1973 Buick Electra





1971 Mercury Marquis coupe for sale in Columbus, Ohio.
Too cold to be outside in this godforsaken state to be looking at cars at this time of year, but I could not resist! Factory 429 2BBL high-compression engine, and was told that the car will run and drive okay, however, the gas tank would eventually need to be replaced, for it leaks(more than likely rusted through in some places), and this is the reason for the "temporary plumbing" with the plastic gas can under the hood that is routed to the mechanical fuel pump, and then, of course, the factory hard fuel line leading directly into the carb. Both rear quarter panels are pretty badly rusted, and more than likely, both would need to be replaced. However, the rest of the body seems solid. I was told that the driver's side cylinder head was removed and a valve job was done, and then the head was reinstalled with a new head gasket. Again, this was only for the driver's side. Factory "rim-blow horn" 3-spoke sport steering wheel with tilt, but the wheel itself needs to be restored, or at least the inner rubber contract-strip replaced for the horn to work again, for it is dry-rotted. The car was attempted to be started, but for about 15 minutes and with multiple trying, no success. The steering column ignition tumbler sticks and moves slow, but more than likely, a simple, cheap replacement of the ignition switch, and that would solve the problem. One may speculate on a simple greasing of the rod between the ignition switch and tumbler assembly, but my intution tells me that it is really the 41 year-old original ignition switch that could stand to be replaced. Lastly: YES, I knew all along that this is a Mercury and not a Lincoln. I don't know what possessed me to say so, but I blurted out Lincoln. Silbing rivalry anyway.
