1940 Mercury Coupe --
If you've been searching for a super cool street rod that can be driven and shown with pride this impressive Mercury is the perfect solution! A chopped cruiser that benefitted from an extensive 5-year restoration this awesome coupe began its new life as a show stopping head turner back in 2012. That restoration conducted by Sports Car Collision of McAdenville North Carolina saw the car's voluptuous body stripped all the way to bare metal. Once that metal was super solid and virtually flawless s...haved doors were complemented with a pancaked hood and power operated decklid. And that thoroughly tweaked profile was sealed in a custom coat of pearl 2-stage. Like it or not sometimes it's good to break tradition. And breaking tradition is one thing that makes this Merc so impressive. Lift the car's domed hood and you'll find 454 cubic inches of big block muscle that mixes miles of power with mountains of torque! A tough 700R4 4-speed drives a sturdy Ford 9-inch which pushes a fully boxed chassis. At the nose of that chassis a Fat Man front-half centers power rack-and-pinion steering between pliable air bags. At the back of that chassis a modern 4-bar setup utilizes two more air bags to increase grip and maintain ride height. Power front disc and rear drum brakes are a welcome addition and big performance upgrade. And everything rides on red steelies which spin 185/70R15 front and 225/70R15 rear BF Goodrich Silvertown Radial whitewalls around mind-bending covers. With its massaged motor smooth-shifting 4-speed comfortable interior and vintage swagger you'll never tire of finding this Merc in your garage. Stop watching opportunity pass you by.
