IMOA Classifieds Fall 2016


50merc-jeff-paley1950 two-door six-passenger coupe. I am selling this nice 1950 Merc for a friend whose husband recently passed away. Here is what I know or have observed about the car: It was most recently owned for 12 years; flathead V-8; equipped with overdrive; manual transmission; Dark Metallic Blue; upgraded stereo system with original radio receiver; converted to 12V negative ground; lowered with lowering blocks; front and rear springs, and shocks replaced; dual exhaust with (sounds like) glasspaks; new Coker radial tires, P215/75 R15; electric fuel pump; partially rewired at some point in its history; older restoration, paint, chrome, upholstery predates recent owner; fiberglass fender skirts; comes with owner’s manual and factory shop manual; clear title. Starts up quickly, shifts easily. Flaws: Front end feels tight; clutch engages near top of travel; can bottom out on steep driveways due to lowering; overdrive doesn’t engage. Solenoid/governor are for 6V positive ground, not upgraded to 12V negative ground along with rest of car electrics (may need solenoid/governor from 1956 Ford overdrive unit which had a 12V negative ground system). Hood release cable sticky – needs fussing to engage; minor paint flaws; scrape at front center of roof, misc. scratches; chrome flaws: scraped chrome plating on one front bumper guard; ignition and trunk locks worn. $27,500 or closest offer.

Seats, door panels, front sheet metal (dog house) are removed, so a good inspection can be done. I was going to make a hot rod out of it, but decided it is too good to start cutting on it. Dirt accumulated in lower quarter panels rear dog legs, so there is rust there in the rear.

Was purchased new at Cunningham Motors Inc. in Lancaster, Ohio. It has been stored inside dry buildings since 1984 and maybe longer. Build sheet is mostly legible. I have a dealer’s shop factory repair manual included. I also am including a 383 big block that needs rebuilding.
