Lot S128 1971 Mercury Cougar 429 Cobra Jet 4-speed
Mercury was a force in mid-sixties factory FX racing with its crazy 427 Comets, but by the late sixties had become identified more with luxury than performance. One of the exceptions to this trend was the Cougar, which earned a serious performance reputation in both drag and road racing. A genuine all-matching-numbers concours-quality example of Mercury's ponycar is offered here in the form of this singularly rare 1971 Cougar 429 Cobra Jet 4-speed. Only 18 1971 Cougars were equipped with this top-of-the-line power combination; this car is the only one of that group originally finished in Black.
Fresh from a private Cobra Jet collection, the car's no-expense-spared restoration is evident in every detail from its as-new exterior finish and brightwork to the impeccable Medium Green interior that includes the unmistakable Hurst T-handle shifter. This is the sort of presentation that comes from pride of both ownership and craftsmanship.
A factory A/C car with power steering and brakes, this rare and remarkable car comes with complete documentation that includes a Marti Report.

Lot S129 1959 Chevrolet Impala Mod
The 1959 Impala offered here embodies all the styling and mechanical
strengths of the original, with added features that bring its performance
into the twenty-first century. A factory 4-speed car with a Tri-Power V-8,
it has been given a frame-off rotisserie restoration and then fitted with
4-wheel disc brakes for added safety. The original factory air conditioning
has been replaced with a Vintage Air system, eliminating the environmental
concerns of the old unit.
The car's renewal has been brilliantly executed. From any approach, it is a
well-restored, generously-optioned Impala with a highly desirable color
scheme, beautiful interior and cosmetics and several attractive custom
touches, period correct in every way. But a few well-chosen modern upgrades
make it a more reliable, drivable and enjoyable classic.
- Beautiful White on Red 1959 Impala Tri-Power 4-speed
- Meticulously restored and upgraded
- Immaculate and correct throughout
- Vintage Air A/C system
- Custom 4 wheel disc brakes
- Wide whitewall tires
- Spinner hubcaps
- Chrome headlight shades

the course of about 5 years, he undertook a painstaking restoration to
bring the car to the highest level he could, with a little help from his
friends (and lots of advice from folks on http://www.mercurycougar.net ).
On January 22, 2011, he drove it onto the auction block at Barrett-Jackson,
stepped out, and watched it sell for... well, you'll just have to watch to

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.

car shows that I've attended here in Southern California U.S.A.
Lot S126 1971 Chevrolet Camaro Custom 565 609 HP 6 Speed
This 1971 Chevrolet Camaro is a fine example of a
ponycar-based Resto Mod that combines awesome performance, show-quality
looks and solid reliability. A well-documented two-owner car with only
54,000 original miles, it was purchased after seventeen years in storage by
its third and present owner, who ushered it through an eighteen month
nut-and-bolt restoration to its new status as a world-class Pro-Touring
Resto Mod of considerable muscle.
The engine is a professionally built 565 cubic inch Chevy Dart Big Block
generating an estimated 650 horsepower and 700 lb.-ft.
of torque. 91-plus octane pump gas feeds through a polished intake to
Brodix heads, while a Richmond 6-speed manual and Ford 9" rear end complete
the drive train. A Wilwood four-wheel disc and hydro Boost power brake system provide ample braking
to bring all that power to heel.
Subtle body modifications involving hundreds of hours of work were topped
with a Custom Blue Pearle mix and Performance White Pearle stripes then
finished with multiple coats of clear. Extensive chrome in the engine
compartment and suspension is augmented by the polished stainless steel gas
tank. The car rolls on 17" front and 18" rear Foose Nitrous II wheels.
The interior features custom black leather seats, power windows, keyless
remote locks, factory air conditioning and a complete set of Autometer
gauges. Superb sound comes via a state of the art Kenwood AM/FM receiver,
multi disc CD player, HD radio receiver, and iPod connection.
The extensive work performed by Performance Restorations in Mundelein,
Illinois was quickly rewarded: on the two occasions it has been shown, the
car has won two "Gold Bow Tie Boulevard" awards, the "Diamond" award for
Best of Show First Time Shown Camaro and the "Top Gun" Judges
Choice Award for Best Camaro.
