For sale in our Nashville, TN showroom is this one of a kind chopped 1949 Mercury. In 1951, George Barris purchased a then brand-new Mercury Coupe for himself, it didn’t take long, and he had fully customized it, a passerby liked it so much that he ordered a customized Mercury for himself. That car became known as the Hirohata Merc, after its owner, and would go on to be one of the most famous customized cars of the decade, thanks in part to Barris’ restyling and through traveling the county with GM’s Motorama auto show. This is how the 1949-1951 Mercury became a kustom car icon and now one of the most popular cars to turn into a full kustom. This kustom 1949 Mercury comes to us as a beautiful chopped lead sled, and with it’s classic chopped roofline you’d be forgiven if you thought it was one of the Pharaohs cruising by. Sporting a 396 CID big block chevy backed by a smooth automatic transmission, this sled is ready for a long cruise up the costal highway or down Whittier Blvd. on a Saturday night. Painted in a deep candy blue this car is a real head turner! The interior is complete with a wonderful black vinyl covering most every surface and topped off with excellent detailing. This ride sports shaved door handles, wide white wall tires, power steering, classic 1957 cadillac wheel covers, and a clean lowered stance. For more information on this kustom 1949 Mercury Coupe call the down in the Nashville showroom at 615-213-1800 or visit us on the web at nashville@gatewayclassiccars.com
