SLEEK LEAD SLED, FUEL INJECTED 350 V8, AUTO TRANS, PWR STEER/FRNT DISC, COOL!!!

This 1949 Mercury gets the full Lead Sled style right. It's sleek, premium, and unforgettable. So look over every inch – from the fuel-injected V8 power to the leather-lined A/C interior – and discover what a true work of automotive art is all about.

This one really gets the look right from every angle. After all, these are supposed to be slick customs, so you have the lowered suspension, frenched headlight housings, clear tri-bar headlights, shaved door handles, and even tail light borrowed from a European Ford Cortina. And they really took the time to expertly chop inches out of the roofline and give this an extra-smooth silhouette. It's all wrapped in a beautiful maroon with nice gloss and plenty of metallic that lets the light dance across the body - highlighting the super-slick appearance even further. The dark paint also brings out the details, like the hand-painted pinstripe on the trunk. Plus, it has good fundamentals with clear glass, pliable weather-stripping, and crisp body panels. You'll also love the brightwork package. Nothing here looks stock thanks to upgrades like the extra-smooth chrome bumpers, the toothy grille, Cadillac hubcaps, dual spotlights, driver's side faux ...

SLEEK LEAD SLED, FUEL INJECTED 350 V8, AUTO TRANS, PWR STEER/FRNT DISC, COOL!!!

This 1949 Mercury gets the full Lead Sled style right. It's sleek, premium, and unforgettable. So look over every inch – from the fuel-injected V8 power to the leather-lined A/C interior – and discover what a true work of automotive art is all about.

This one really gets the look right from every angle. After all, these are supposed to be slick customs, so you have the lowered suspension, frenched headlight housings, clear tri-bar headlights, shaved door handles, and even tail light borrowed from a European Ford Cortina. And they really took the time to expertly chop inches out of the roofline and give this an extra-smooth silhouette. It's all wrapped in a beautiful maroon with nice gloss and plenty of metallic that lets the light dance across the body - highlighting the super-slick appearance even further. The dark paint also brings out the details, like the hand-painted pinstripe on the trunk. Plus, it has good fundamentals with clear glass, pliable weather-stripping, and crisp body panels. You'll also love the brightwork package. Nothing here looks stock thanks to upgrades like the extra-smooth chrome bumpers, the toothy grille, Cadillac hubcaps, dual spotlights, driver's side faux lake pipes, wide dual exhaust tips, and Buick-inspired side trim. And while this is a true classic cruiser, right down to the whitewalls, the neon lights under the car also remind you there are some cool modern touches.

From the moment you open the door, you can tell there was a nice investment inside to keep you comfortable. The split bench has been upgraded to a nice black and white leather, and it comes with a fold-down center armrest for individual comfort. The carpets, headliner, door panels, dash, trunk, and even the steering wheel are all done in coordinating colors. This was built around the driver, and so you are within easy reach of upgrades like the power seat, power windows, AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. And details like the tilt steering column and full Stewart Warner gauge package really let you know this custom coupe was made to cruise.

The engine bay has a clean style that signals a proper investment. And that flame-kissed air grabber means no stone was unturned making this into a cool custom. But beneath this classic piece is a more modern 350 cubic-inch crate V8 with a Holley Sniper electronic fuel injection system on top. The motor fires up readily and makes a throaty tune out of the dual exhaust. So it feels just as ready to hit the boulevard as you are. That's why it also has features like an updated independent front suspension, a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front.

The sale comes complete with build receipts and restoration photos. This is a true icon done the way you've always wanted. But you're not the only one with James Dean dreams, so hurry up and call today!
