Mercury Coupe 1948 Description

1948 Mercury Coupe. Nice custom, clean lines and a good looker. Was built quite a while ago now but still shows well, a very fun cruiser. 350 V8 with brand new Holley carb and fuel pump, automatic trans, power rack and pinion steering, new shocks in rear, A/C blows but not cold (have not checked freon level). Nice sounding dual exhaust. Tilt column, shaved door handles with poppers, windshield with butted seam in the center, body trim all shaved, custom smooth taillights, power trunk lift (currently disconnected). Nice smooth chop top with clean blending of the rain gutters and such...very smooth lines. Monochrome look to bumpers and grille surround...nice modern look. Awesome pinstripe licks on the nose and tail, new wide whites on chrome wheels with "Shannon Cone" centers. Custom tweed interior with molded door panels and a nice diamond detail in the center of the back seat. Its a cool ride.
Condition wise as you can see it looks like a million bucks in the pics, but under close inspection you can see some flaws. There are some light scratches and a few chips and bubbles, the interior shows a little age, drivers vent wing glass is cracked. Speedometer and clock are not working. Wiper arms have been removed but are included. Its far from perfect, it is not a mega dollar show rod by any means but it is a great cruise night car and gets a lot of looks. Fun car for the money.
Please ask all questions before bidding. Im happy to show the car in person to anyone that would like to see it. I have more photos I can email to serious buyers, just message me through the auction and I will go over everything with you! Happy to assist with shipping anywhere in the world.
