1950 Mercury Monterey in Volo Illinois

 Vehicle Description
This is one of the best looking chopped Mercs I have seen. The chop and custom features are cool, the colors are hot! The red interior against the black paint is stunning. Very comfortable cruising car, has air and power accessories. Included are 2 binders with photos of the restoration, receipts and a calendar that features this car. Only 5,350 miles since EXTERIOR: The body was off the frame, flipped on its side and stripped to a bare metal shell. Top was chopped 4 inches and rear window was tipped forward. Extensive body mods include- all trim, locks, handles were removed and filled, gas door was filled. Headlights, taillights and antenna were frenced. Hood corners were rounded, Lake pipes were molded into the fenders, custom skirts were installed. The doors and trunk are remote. Has dummy spotlights, DeSoto grill and 1955 Pontiac side trim. Custom design was molded into the hood. The mirrors have turn signals built in. Then it was given a slick black paint job and some hand pinstriping. The chrome it has is bright. Glass is tinted. Has big fat radial white wall tires and the hub caps are so cool, look like they are right out of Grease INTERIOR: Man that red pops. Its a Cadillac interior, both seats have 6 way power. The dash is all custom with a full set of new gauges, a tachometer is mounted on the column. It is a tilt column with a custom wheel. The shift is on the floor with a cool devils head knob. Side panels are upholstered to match the seats. Has new carpet and matching floor ENGINE COMPARTMENT: A 350 Chevy motor decorated in chrome sits under the hood of this one. The aluminum intake and water neck were chromed, Edelbrock carb with electric choke was chromed, valve covers, air cleaner are chrome. Has HEI ignition. The brake booster and master are chromed. The air conditioning system has chrome parts. Alternator is chrome. Battery cover, exhaust shields, fan are chrome too. The bay is painted gloss black and has a Betty Boop mural painted up TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has been boxed and carpeted red. The spare and gas filler is recessed into the floor. Has a trunk UNDERSIDE: We have pictures of the underbody striped to bare metal on its side. The frame is smooth metal. Both were completely painted a semi gloss black before assembly. A Camaro subframe was attached in front. Uses all new Camaro front suspension and disc brakes. In back it has lowering blocks, air shocks and a chevy 10 bolt rear end. Bottom of the motor has chrome oil pan and flywheel cover. Theres a high torque starter. Has chrome pan on the turbo 350 automatic trans. New dual exhaust with glass pack mufflers. Its really clean under this I could easily see it costing well over $100,000 to have a shop build a car like this. A customer was just in my office, he said just the paint materials for his Road Runner was $6,200. All the custom body work on this car and the paint job would cost $30,000 or more.
