Description
The Eight model signified the exclusive use of V8 power under the hood which was a slightly larger displacement version of the famous flathead V8 at 255 cubic inches which generated 110 horsepower. Every single 1950 Mercury Eight that left the factory had a 3 speed manual transmission but not every 1950 Mercury Eight left the factory with a Overdrive transmission, as this special ordered example has. What you rarely hear about is original California vehicles that are nearly 8 decades old with it's original black paint. That is something you just don't see to often and would be quite difficult to duplicate. Because of the strong interest in customizing these Mercury's an original 1949 to 1951 Mercury in pure stock form is more difficult than finding one that's been modified, and stock two-door models may be the most difficult to find. The 1949,1950 and 1951 Mercury's were hot when new, and remain a must for any serious collection. This 1950 Mercury Coupe is possibly the most original stock example in existence anywhere in the world. This is a unique opportunity to own an iconic symbol of the very start of the California custom car culture in the early 1950's untouched from new with its original Raven Black paint it left the factory with 69 years ago.
