Burnout by One Wicked 1968 Mercury Cougar
We went to a charity rod run in Wright City, MO about a week ago and this
menacing looking Mercury Cougar was rolling around. It's completely
blacked out and I believe I smelled some race gas as it rolled past. He
decided to bring it out to the burnout pit, just to give people a little
taste of the power lurking under that hood. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for taking a look!

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.
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
Front Suspension & Chassis Upgrades - '68 Cougar / Mustang
In this video, we show some of the ways you can easily stiffen your car's
chassis and upgrade your front suspension. Using Andrew's '68 Cougar as a
guinea pig, we bolt on, and weld on, some simple parts that will make a big
difference in reducing the torsional flex that these front ends are prone
to, as well as improving the integrity of the shock towers.
