1951 Mercury Eight has that slick attitude that makes it a rolling icon. But more than just the right classic custom pieces, the upgrades like the A/C interior, overdrive transmission, and much more make it a great all-around cruiser.
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 headlights, shaved door handles, smoothed rear, and all trim expertly deleted. It’s all wrapped in a beautiful metallic burgundy that lets the light dance off the body – highlighting the super-slick appearance even further. We especially like the pinstriping. Finished in a coordinating purple and red, it looks like if you combined the two colors, it would give you the body paint! And all the right accessory pieces are there, too, like the color-matched visor, dual spotlights, fender skirts, and lake pipes (display). Plus, the whitewalls with shining Mercury hubcaps command attention all on their own. And of course, there are the bumpers. The double-hump look in front is part of what gives this car its legendary status. The right customizers knew how to customize the factory pieces to create an artful presentation like you see here.
