Condition & Features

Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale January 18th 22nd, 2012 at Russo and Steele\’s 12th Annual Scottsdale Arizona Auction. Please contact us for more information. This 1950 Mercury Custom was purchased from a farmer in Southern Minnesota and pulled with a skid loader out of a grove of trees. A tree had fallen over the front fender and a family of raccoons was living in the engine compartment. Thus began a 16 year project. Every part of the car was disassembled, stripped, and refinished, replaced, or customized. Body modifications include a top that is chopped 4 inches and done right for that perfectly natural look. All seams have been welded and filled, headlights frenched, nosed and decked, custom grill and the bumpers have been molded to body. The firewall was replaced with smooth steel, the car was lowered front and back, 1950 Ford blue dot taillights were frenched in the quarter panels and custom aluminum flush-mounted fender skirts were formed to accent the smooth look. Colorado Custom wheels give the look of Cadillac hubcaps, and California custom mirrors were added. But the most spectacular feature of this custom is the tilt front end made from the original steel fenders with custom aluminum inner fenders. The gaps between the hood and fenders are filled so that the front look is totally smooth. The entire front end slides forward 5 inches, then tilts a full 90? to display the engine compartment and make maintenance easy. This is a real show stopper at any car show. The frame and suspension are original with Fatman Fabrications front components for dropped spindles and disc brakes. Power steering and power brakes make this driver easy to handle and stop. All the electrical components, brake lines, and fuel lines are hidden in the frame. A custom gas tank, Ford 302 engine with performance upgrades by Don Emmel, a C-4 transmission and a Ford 9 inch rear end supply and transfer the power. The interior sports a custom console to match t
