AUCTION RESULTS: Car was Sold at a price of $46,200

Est. 350hp, 350 cu. in. Chevrolet V8 engine, three-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 automatic transmission, independent front suspension and live rear axle with Air Ride system, and four-wheel hydraulic brakes. Wheelbase: 118"

Bill Dugan of Ohio built this incredible 1949 Mercury custom to very high standards of craftsmanship. While the details are far too extensive to list in their entirety, the hood was smoothed and a set of Gene Winfield hood scoops were added, while the roof was chopped, reinforced and converted to a hardtop layout with the careful elimination of the door pillars. Of course, the car features frenched headlights and radio antennas, dual spotlights, chrome lakes pipes, fully skirted rear fenders, and dual exhaust outlets. The Mercury glides along with purple neon accent lights, while black steel wheels with smooth chrome-plated hubcaps and wide whitewall tires provide the rolling stock.

The smoothed engine bay cradles a 350 cubic inch Corvette engine topped by chrome and billet accessories, as well as a pair of polished Weber sidedraft carburetors and a custom-built intake manifold. A strong Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 transmission and a Traction-Lok rear axle from a 1973 Lincoln send the power to the pavement, while an Air Ride suspension provides driver-adjustable ride height. The air-conditioned interior includes bucket seats with fawn leather upholstery as well as a custom dash and floor console.

Upon its completion, this spectacular Mercury was featured in the May 2001 edition of Northern Rodder magazine, and today, it remains a rolling sculpture. Everything about it is of the highest quality, and it will certainly continue to epitomize the customizerís art.
