49 Mercury KUSTOM-, 350 chevy small block V8, automatic, 71 Monte Carlo sub-frame with power Disc Brakes and Power Steering and a four link coil spring rear suspensipon from the 71 Monte Carlo and she RIDES NICE !!!....built by the FAMOUS Canadian kustom car builder Jim Bailie ( look him up ! ) .... JUST CAME IN -- AND she is BEAUTIFUL !!!!
Mercury 1949 - 51  custom & mild custom galerie - Page 21 Dsc04811
This ABSOLUTE BEAUTY has had SO MANY body modifications that are SO SUBLTLE you actually have to LOOK ..... but .. FIRST .... She is painted in a nice Sunset Blue with a KNOCK OUT Multi-Color Flame job that is REALLY NICE !!! The Blue and White Roll and Pleat interior is 50's PERFECT and COMFORTABLE as your favorite chair !!! The car was built in the 80's so she does have some paint dings, etc, but we didn't wanna' TOUCH HER because of her history ....
Mercury 1949 - 51  custom & mild custom galerie - Page 21 Dsc04812
Now ... body mods.... I'll give 'ya a FEW and see if you can spot the rest .....LOOK AT ALL THE BODY LINES -- the FIT and FINISH of the metal work on the car is nothing short of OUTSTANDING !!! Of course ... She has the " usual " nose and deck ..... and the PERFECT TOP CHOP !!! And here's a few MORE .... Starting at the front end ..... the Hood has been peaked and extended and re-shaped to fit the custom grill cavity with a custom grill built by Jim.... the ENTIRE front end was re-shaped to give it a "movie" car look like the "Green Hornet" or " Dick Tracey" type of movie car with the headlights dropped down ( and they have removable COVERS to HIDE THEM COMPLETLY !! )and the custom Grille/Grille cavity ....A custom front roll pan was created to match the contours of the re-shaped front end.... Jim installed a one-pice windshield and then he moved on to RE- SHAPE the front and rear wheel arches that are a NICE touch ....he then installed a SUNKEN MIRROR in the door that when closed keeps the body lines SMOOTH and it is one NICE piece of metalwork !!! ... then he added sunken door handles ( YES !!! -- a Kustom with DOOR HANDLES that are as COOL AS IT GETS !!!!) .....The triple exit side pipes are channeled thru the rocker panels....... Then he moved to the rear window and SUNK the window and created a pair of PEAKED trailing edges ..... THEN --- onto the the rear of the car ----- The trunk has been re-shaped to meet the Jim Bailie created rolled rear pan with frenched license plate ( oh ... frenched antenna too !! ) ... Next was a SEXTUPLET of tail lights expertly frenched into the lower rear 1/4 panels ..... now YOU LOOK and see all the modifications to this MERCURY KUSTOM that was created by ONE OF THE BEST METAL--SHAPERS ON THE PLANET !!

1951 Mercury Custom 2 Door Coupe
Mercury 1949 - 51  custom & mild custom galerie - Page 21 02104
Take a look at this beautiful 1951 Mercury Custom brought to you by CARuso Classic Cars. This 1951 over the top custom Mercury was built by the Top Mercury Builder, Cecil Proffitt. It is covered in Chrysler Perfection Pearl White paint with Yellow Graphics that gives it a classic look. Under the hood the chassis was modified to accept a powerful 350 Corvette engine with dressed up items, it is equipped with a performance manifold and a 600cfm Edelbrock carb. Corvette valve covers have polished fins. Chrome engine accessories include a 14' Moroso air cleaner, alternator, and an assortment of items. A 350 turbo transmission is married to a Nova rear end. Chopped front coils and lowering blocks account for the extra low ride height.
Mercury 1949 - 51  custom & mild custom galerie - Page 21 0390
The body was chopped and filled everywhere! The drip rails were removed, and the door corners were rounded. Up front the headlights were frenched, and the grille shell was molded. The hood was shaved, and the hood corners were also rounded. The skirts are flushed-fit, and the lake pipers were molded to the rockers. 1956 Packard taillights ride in extended rear quarters. the continental kit valances were molded as well, and the continental kit valances were molded as well. The deck lid and the door handles were shaved. The body was then shot in pearl white with yellow pearl graphics. The grille was then custom-built to fit the new openings.
Mercury 1949 - 51  custom & mild custom galerie - Page 21 0483
The interior of the Mercury is done in grey velour. A simple pleated panel graces the seats and the door panels. The dash is a '49 Mercury unit with custom guages. Creature features include a tilt wheel, A/C, and a Sony sound system. Wheels and tires are wide whites on chrome-reversed wheels with custom gold spinners.

The outside simply has to be seen to be fully appreciated - two tone silver and blue with ghost iridescent pin striping and highlights! Shaved door handles and trunk release along with the flat-out coolest sun visor I think I've ever seen. The car was purchased in original super clean condition and then professionally transformed into one of the hottest cruisers I have ever been behind the wheel of. Twin direct-able search lights, all original interior and SUICIDE DOORS!

Mom's Merc, built in Dad's garage

Rod & Custom Feature Car
Natalie & Dan Olsen
LaVista, Nebraska
1950 Mercury Coupe

It’s refreshing to realize that there’s still a strong do-it-yourself ethos coursing though the rod and custom realm, despite the seemingly continuous stream of six-figure, professionally built, trailer-pampered rides clamoring for attention at any given vehicular gathering. And we’re not just talking barn finds or spray-bombed beaters, either. No, there are plenty of finely finished, “show quality”, owner-built customs being built, and we offer up Dan and Natalie Olsen’s sublime Merc as evidence.

Dan built this knockout, low-lid Mercury almost exclusively in the couple’s Omaha-area garage—a fairly typical suburban three-car affair where Dan has mastered the efficient use of space. A second-generation hot rodder and full-time firefighter, Dan is no stranger to building eye-catching rides. His gold-and-flamed 1937 Ford sedan (also largely homebuilt) garnered a shelf full of awards a few years back, not to mention features in both Rodder’s Journal and STREET RODDER. When the sedan went down the road, Dan quickly scooped up a ’32 three-window coupe project, but also needed something roomier to keep peace in the household.

“I was originally interested in buying a station wagon for Natalie to drive to car shows,” Dan says. “We have two children—Bella and Sullivan—who like to attend, but a four-person family has trouble getting to a car show in a 1932 Ford.” Around this same time, Dan’s father and some friends began talking about an enigmatic old Merc that had long been the topic of speculation in the Southern Omaha car scene.

“The car could be seen outside in the elements for a year or two at a time and then it would be moved back into the garage,” Dan says. “It was an older build that was painted metallic blue. Half of the car had been sanded down to bare metal that was surface rusted. A couple of years went by before I made contact with the owner, and another year went by before the purchase. I asked Natalie if she wanted a wagon or the Merc; she said, ‘wagon’. I said, ‘Too bad, you’re getting a Merc!’”

Dan’s affinity for Mercurys comes naturally, as he spent a good portion of his formative years cruising with his father, Harry, in a 1950 Merc—a car Harry still owns. Harry can also be credited with instilling Dan’s vigorous do-it-yourself attitude, a trait that led Dan to challenge himself to tackle as much of the Merc build as possible solo. This wasn’t just a personal quest; Dan also saw it as a means of preserving the hot rodding tradition imparted on him by Harry and his friends. “I knew it was time to learn this stuff if I was going to stay in the hobby,” Dan says.

Despite detesting bodywork, Dan dug right in and started stripping the Merc down to bare metal, making repairs and planning modifications. “I think chopping the top was the biggest, most rewarding experience,” he says. “I researched what I wanted to do, asked for advice and pictures from a few people, and chopped it by myself in my home garage. I did not want any help and even lowered the top without any help after cutting out 6 inches.”

In addition to the top slice, Dan installed ’56 Olds headlight rings and surrounds, a ’54 DeSoto grille in a molded shell, ’56 Ford front bumper, and ’50 Lincoln taillights. He also did the usual rounded corners and emblem removal and added Lincoln push-button door handles. “Basically, I did all of the custom modifications that I had seen and liked in the past,” Dan says. All of this work was ultimately soaked in a striking metallic lime green tint—a color Dan found on an ’11 Ford Fiesta and enhanced with gold pearl powder “until we liked it”. And, yes, he sprayed the finish himself, using a friend’s makeshift paint booth to get the job done. Longtime pinstriper Jim Curran was called in to pull some intricate late night lines over the color basecoat before Dan covered everything in clear the next morning.

The DIY mantra held true for the Merc’s mechanical metamorphosis, as well. “I challenged myself to fab and install the air ride suspension system and drivetrain,” Dan says. This included C-notching the frame to better clear the 9-inch rearend and adding dropped spindles up front. As for the running gear, Dan swapped a rebuilt 351 Windsor and AOD transmission in place of the original Flathead. (Not to fear–the Flatty will find a good home in one of Dan’s now-multiple Deuce projects.)

When it came to stitching the Impala bench and stock rear seat, Dan did enlist a bit of outside assistance. “My dad, Harry, stitched the interior, as I cut patterns, marked pleats, and installed the sewn material on the panels and seats,” Dan says. “Harry also helped with some wiring.”

Dan is understandably proud of his personal accomplishments in building the Merc, though he is quick to give credit to the friends who offered moral support, advice, and crucial helping hands. “Joe Inserra provided advice, tools, and assisted with the back window install, prepping paint, and let me borrow a good paint gun,” Dan says. “Roger Gallager helped on paint day (moving hoses and parts around, running errands). Several other friends should be mentioned for providing parts, advice, and time: Del Luehring, Mark Ervin, Dave Huxhold, Mike Mantell, John Hogaland and, finally, Jeff and Bernie.”

Yes, folks, you can still build a top-notch custom in your garage. It takes resolve. It takes time. It takes friends and family offering good help and advice. And yes, it does take some talent. But as the sublime results of “Mom’s Merc” show, it can be accomplished. Now we’re anxious to see if Dan can deliver a repeat performance with that hot rod Deuce in the corner of his garage.

Nothing’s worse than a chopped Merc with a tall stance, so Dan brought the entire body closer to earth using RideTech air springs front and rear. The front ’bags are complemented with Fatman Fabrications dropped spindles and a ’99 Jeep Grand Cherokee power steering box. Out back, Dan installed a trailing arm suspension and Panhard bar to locate the ‘70s-era Ford pickup 9-inch rearend. A Ford Explorer brake pedal and master cylinder actuate the four-wheel drum brakes.
