MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer this 1957 Mercury Turnpike
Cruiser. Mercury was way ahead of the times and thought to the future when
they debuted the Turnpike. This car was overflowing with unusual styling
and intriguing features!
To understand the Turnpike Cruiser, remember what was going on in the
country then. President Eisenhower had just signed into law the Interstate
Highway System, and everyone was looking forward to the day when super
highways would connect the nation. So Turnpike Cruiser was just what was
Finished in two tone red & white, the paint is in beautiful condition and
we are hard pressed to find imperfections! The body, taking design notes
from the "space age," is straight as an arrow and solid. It is also
equipped with fender skirts and two functional air intakes on each pillar.
The chrome is in wonderful condition and has a brilliant sheen. This is a
seriously futuristic car that just so happened to be built in the 50s!
Inside, the interior compliments the exterior perfectly! The two tone red
and white cloth/vinyl seats are in excellent condition and show minimal
signs of wear. The seats also are lined with gold piping that give the
upholstery a touch of higher class. The red carpet, headliner and two tone
doors are all in great condition. The dashboard compliments the exterior as
well and houses some really cool components such as "Seat-O-Matic" power
seats, AM radio, clock and an ultra rare tachometer! Flanking the upper
windshield are two functional air intakes that keep things cool and fresh
while cruising the turnpike.
Under the hood, you'll find a clean and tidy engine bay. The Turnpike is
powered by a 368ci 290HP V8 engine. Mated to the engine is a Push Button
"Merc-O-Matic" Automatic Transmission. It sits elegantly upon a set of 14"
wheels wrapped in P215/75R14 tires that look great.
This is a very rare, novel and attractive collector car that is sure to
find a comfortable spot within any collection! The VIN is 165AK57609599 and
the mileage currently shows 111,903. It is being sold on a clean and clear,
actual mileage Nebraska title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!

models, all changing every year, they made a profit. And, not only that . .
but one could sit on the porch and name the cars as they drove by. Unlike
today, when they all look the same . This is when a car was a car, so sit

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

Rat Rod Custom 1950 Mercury Rescue! - Roadkill Episode 21
It's always a good idea to buy a car off the Internet sight-unseen, right?
That's what a friend-of-a-friend of Roadkill did with the kustom Merc—and
maybe he made an even worse decision when he allowed Freiburger and
Finnegan to wrench on the thing and deliver it to him. This deal was set up
by a Roadkill fan, Jim Norman of Norman Vinyards in Paso Robles,
California. The road trip involves the '69 El Camino from Episode 4, The
Dog from Episodes 4 and 17, lots of burnouts with the guys from Hot Rod
Ranch - http://www.hotrodranchcustoms.com - and plenty of fun with Alex
