Beautiful 1950 Mercury CP
Mercury is a defunct division of the American automobile manufacturer Ford Motor Company.
Although the initial Mercury Eight was a distinct design, for much of the existence of the division, Ford would rely on common underpinnings from Ford or Lincoln to save on development costs. The Mercury division of Ford consisted solely of the Mercury Eight in 1950.
Why Its Special
With that in mind, the 1950 Mercury Coupe we have at Skyway Classics is not your typical Merc. It is what is commonly referred to as a Lead Sled.
And what a lead sled it is!
Almost every piece of this 1950 Mercury Eight is customized with an enormous amount of custom parts, engine, upgrades, interior comforts, and improved handling.
A highly modified car requires a highly modified engine and that is what you get here with a fuel-injected 350 cubic-inch Corvette V8 Corvette engine. Custom aluminum panels cover everything in the engine bay and give it quite the clean look. It also has power steering and front disc brakes.
No money was spared with the complete custom interior either. It starts with tan leather bucket seats, AM/FM/CD changer stereo, air conditioning converted to R-134a, power windows, power locks, remote door openers, and an overhead console. The driver grips the leather and chrome steering wheel and looks at the custom digital dashboard.
The Merc has a ton of custom body work painted in pearlescent silver paint. Its front end has a custom front bumper, frenched in headlights, shaved door handles, integrated rear fender skirts, and hood scoops. Its rear end has a custom rear bumpe and custom taillights, this baby is quite a site.
It rides on custom mag wheels with great tires and sound real nice with its dual exhaust coming out the back end.
The original 1950 Mercury was a great car in its day, but this custom version we have at Skyway Classics is so well done, the early ones pale in comparison. This Merc needs to be seen to be believed.
