B.J. McCord, Kerrville, Texas
This old 'All-Steel' 1949 Mercury 2-Door Sedan Body is sitting on a Full 1972 Pontiac GTO frame, not just a 'Sub-Frame'.
The 350 Engine with 6-Pack (Three 2 Barrel Carburetors) and Lunati 'Street-Strip' Cam has been completely re-built, has Automatic Transmission, with 2600 Stall, Column shift.
It has the GTO Front End with Power Steering, A/C, and complete driveline including the drive shaft, rear end and air bag ride.
1954 Chevy grill bar with teeth and parking lights, with turn signals and even the Emergency Flashers work.
AM/FM/CD/Stereo with 6 speakers & amplifier.
The new large capacity Aluminum radiator, and heavy-duty electric fan helps keep the engine cool while cruising down the highways at 75-80.
She's been 'nosed', 'decked', headlights 'frenched' hood & fender skirts louvered, pin stripped, dueled out with great sounding Flo Masters, all-electric windows, Cadillac power seats, Air Conditioning, new black-wall Radial Tires, Dummy Spotlights with 'door poppers' in them, duel antennas, 'Seymour Butts' on one antenna, new steel fuel tank, Lake Pipes, and no old Cruiser would be complete without Blue Dot tail lights.
She is a very dependable and extremely comfortable ride with her 'Diamond-Pleat' 'Old-Skool' looking upholstery.
She resides just outside of Kerrville, Texas, in the Beautiful 'Texas Hill Country'.
I've wanted a '49 or '50 Mercury since I was 14, and finally get one when I'm 72. Better late than Never, I suppose.
Thanks to all Veterans, present and past, for your terrific service of keeping America safe, and allowing us to enjoy our little hobbies.
