Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
How do you get ahead of the Mercury Lead Sled guys? How about reaching back even further with a hot rod built from another one of Mercury's iconic designs. This 1940 Mercury Sedan has all those unmistakable custom touches that everyone loves, and it's a unique standout wherever it goes. Best of all, it's built to go everywhere with fuel-injected V8 power, an overdrive transmission, and a new custom/comfy interior.
This is related to one of the most iconic Ford street machines, just in a rarer form. So, it does a great job of showing off its history while also giving the coupe some modern flair. That starts with the classic light blue paint. It's a great color that harmonizes vintage and new while giving off a good gloss and shine. That radiance loves to show off the well-creased full-length body line and the smooth curves of the fenders. The Mercury grille, teardrop headlight bezels, and smooth chrome bumpers make for a great classic brightwork package. Of course, there are plenty of the right custom touches, too. The frenched taillights, frenched license plate, chrome dual exhaust tips, and custom stripes give this a sporty look. And the 15-inch Center Line wheels have a staggered tire size to give this a sporty forward-leaning stance that goes so well with the profile of the sedan.
It will be fun to open both sets of suicide doors whenever you show off this Mercury sedan. After all, not only does it have a very cool look, but also people will get a full view of the full custom interior. This is a fresh investment, and you'll love to call it Reese's...because the seats were done in a tasteful chocolate and peanut butter two-tone. The door panels, dash, carpeting, headliner, and pretty much everything else have this terrific freshness that makes this a great cruiser. And not only does this have the space to let everyone spread out, but it also has the right comfortable upgrades. It includes an AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input, power windows, a cup holder center console, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) The driver is the king with a chrome sports steering wheel on a tilt column, a tall Lokar shifter, and a full gauge package.
A cool look on the outside and an extra-comfy inside are a great recipe for a terrific driver's classic. The final ingredient is the right powerhouse. That's why this Mercury has been upgraded to a fuel-injected 5.0-liter V8. This famous Five-Oh inhales with a BBK throttle body, and it exhales with shorty headers feeding the dual exhaust. It's an all-around driver's package with upgrades like a Mustang II-style front end, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.
Complete with build receipts, this is a powerful, unique, and easy to drive machine that attracts attention wherever it goes. It's the complete custom build that ticks every one of your desires. Call today!!!
