RARE MERCURY COUPE, NICE BUILD, CUSTOM INTERIOR AND PAINT, 302 V8, COLD R134AC!

How do you get ahead of the Mercury Lead Sled guys? How about reaching back even further with a fully custom hot rod built from Mercury's iconic designs. This 1940 Mercury eight-window coupe has all those unmistakable custom touches that everyone loves, but it's done to a vintage car that will make it a unique standout wherever it goes.

The color that's grabbing all your attention is called Metallic Burnt Orange. It's applied with such a professional hand that you'll just think this Mercury is candy-coated. And it will only be a short amount of time before it earns you a few prizes because all the details are done right. It's seen in places like the pristine stainless trim, excellent rubber seals, paintwork that's even uniform in the driprails, and of course, the shaved door handles. But it's the big picture that really has you captivated. After all, this hot rod was built out of a shape that was unique to Ford's newest division. It has distinctive sheetmetal all around, and so you can park it next to a '40 Ford without worrying if it will standout. But just in case you didn't think this was bold enough, there are staggered Foose wheels for an aggressive and custom stance, and this one even borrows its headlights from a different Merc...you know, Mercedes.

Step inside, and even more custom touches await. The adjustable buckets are the first indication that there was plenty of money invested in this build. The shade of brown chosen perfectly complements the exterior, and in between is a comfortable center console with cup holders (a welcomed addition to any car!) Even the rear gets a similar treatment with individual seats separated by a custom console. The driver gets a highly-stylized wood and chrome tilt steering wheel, and beyond that is a digital dashboard. In fact, this Mercury has plenty of electronic upgrades no one could even dream of in 1940. This includes power windows, power locks, and a digital tuner AM/FM stereo that all have custom housings. There's even provisions for a back-up camera. And everyone loves the modern R-134a air conditioning.

With all the custom touches so far, you know the builders would not stop in the engine bay. That a Ford 302 cubic-inch V8 that you'll love showing off at events. After all, items like the Cobra valve covers and all the brightwork will get crowds flocking. But the motor is more than just made to show...this Mercury was made to go. It has performance upgrades that include headers, MSD ignition, and of course, those triple deuce carburetors – a hot rodder favorite. It all ends in that perfect rumble from the glasspack dual exhaust. Not only is it powerful, but you can run down the road with confidence thanks to features like the A-arm independent front suspension, power steering, automatic transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, and modern Kumho Ecsta tires.

Fast, unique, and easy to drive, this is hot rod that attracts attention wherever it goes. But it also has all the right modern features to be as comfortable as a daily driver. This is the complete custom build that ticks every one of your desires. Call today!!!
