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.

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

Boss 429 History/ Boss 9 [S4 Ep.12-1]
Today on GEARZ, Stacey takes a look at one of the most incredible engines
that Ford ever built, the boss 429. But instead of leaving you WISHING you
could have one, he shows you where you can actually GET one... the
legendary Jon Kaase. After that he rolls the V8 Interceptor, Cougar back
into the shop and gives you 780 reasons why this car is called the
Interceptor. With all that new-found room under the hood. Stacey stuffs in
a 520ci, 780 horsepower, Boss Nine engine
and a 6speed manual transmission to back it up. If you didn?t think modern
performance parts would fit in a classic muscle car, this show proves they
can! But there's more to it than that, it's the rebirth of Ford's hemi and
finally an answer to all those Ford fans who have wondered what could have
been if the Boss engine had continued. The Boss V8 Interceptor is in the
