50's CUSTOM, 1951 MERCURY 2 DOOR SEDAN, 350 CHEVY, AUTO, HEAT & A/C, (video)
1951 Mercury 2-DOOR SEDAN 50'S CUSTOM LEAD SLED
Irish green 1951 Mercury 2-door sedan “Lead sled” customized like the nostalgic 1950’s. Body modifications include: ’54 Chevy grill, nosed hood, shaved doors (open with door poppers), decked trunk (opens with remote), frenched head and taillights, sunken antenna, lakes pipes, Appleton spots, and louvered hood.
Power comes from a stock late model 350 c.i. Chevy small block with an Edelbrock 600 cfm 4-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake manifold. A new gas tank and lines were done when the car was built several years ago. The electrical system has been converted to 12-volt.
The Merc was built to be a reliable and comfortable cruiser. Options include Vintage Air A/C & Heat (which does work), new suspension parts, non-power disc brakes up front and drum on the rear, power steering, rear window defroster, and AM/FM/CD/USB player.
A Hurst shifter is used to control the Turbo 350 automatic transmission while a Chevrolet 10-bolt (open) rear differential with 3.23:1 gears allows for great and smooth cruising.
The Kelly-Green 2-stage urethane paint looks great for its age. Overall, on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being perfect. The body and paint are a 5+. The original Merc body appears solid including the frame and floor pans. Chrome is in good to fair condition. the Tinted windows are clear and free from age bubbles. Some bodywork is surfacing on the deck lid (see photo), and there are some road chips. Approximate mileage since completion is 7,000.
A ‘Shamrock’ green theme continues through the interior with velour seats and Kelly-green carpeting. The trunk is also finished with the same materials. Newer style interior gauges were added when the electrical system was upgraded. Original items do not work. Still retains the push button starter on dash.

I have been an active eBay seller of cars and other items for more than 15 years and maintained a 100% rating during most of that period. Approximately 10 years ago I started an online service assisting owners of Classic, Vintage, and Muscle cars to sell their vehicles without them leaving the garage. These are private individual owners who do not want to deal with the public and all the endless phone calls, “Tire kickers”, and other nonsense that goes on when trying to sell a car. They just want someone to sell it!!
