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!!!

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

The All New XM 800
Hello, I'm Tom Maruska and you're witnessing history being made as the 1954 Mercury XM-800 concept car drives into view. You see, the XM-800 was a push car when new. It was common for auto manufacturers to not make their concept cars fully functional for cost saving measures. The XM-800 lacked certain drive train components needed to make it driveable. I installed these missing components when I restored the XM-800. The XM-800 was designed by John Najjar of the Lincoln-Mercury Design Division of Ford Motor Company in 1952. It was built in late 1953 and is crafted entirely of fiberglass. a new challenge in the auto industry and Fords first venture into fiberglass. Even the bumpers are fiberglass and chrome plated, likely the first plastics ever to be chrome plated. I restored the XM-800 over the winter of 2008/2009.The windshield and rear windows are plexiglass. The Xm-800 features power windows, power seats, power brakes and sual Exhaust. All quite commonplace in todays automobiles but something quite amazing in 1954. It also features power opening and closing hood and trunk lids as well as a power reclining front passenger seat. These are features you still not available in todays autos. Other features include bucket seats front and rear, something not repeated in the auto industry until Pontiac did it in 1960. It has center consoles front and rear which contain controls for the seats and windows as well as a place to store personal items and cigarette lighters and ash trays. The XM-800 has an aircraft inspired instrument panel which includes a new instrument, a tachometer, which tells the engine speed in revolutions per minute. Many of the features from the XM-800 show up in later Ford products, particularily the 1956 Lincoln Premier. The XM-800 is the first ever Ford product with fins. The XM-800 premiered at the February 1954 Detroit auto show alongside the all new Thunderbird and as we know, the Thunderbird made it to production but the XM-800 did not. If built it would have been built of steel. The XM-800 was featured in the 1954 movie "Womans World" starring Fred MacMurray, Lauren Bacall, Van Hefflin, June Allyson, Clifton Webb, Arlene Dahl and Cornell Wilde. Minneature models of the XM-800 were free inside boxes of Post Grape Nuts Flakes cereal. The XM-800 appeared in Many Auto magazines including Motor Trend, Road & Track and Car Life The entire history of the XM-800 and it's complete restoration can be seen by visiting www.tbirdsquare.com

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.
