1947 Mercury Convertible for sale in our Louisville Showroom. This stunning street rod is painted in a base clear candy apple red with chameleon color change ghost flames running down the hood and fenders and it will grab the attention of anyone who sees it. The body of the car has undergone numerous modifications including chopping the top, molding the front bumper and grill surround into the doghouse, shaving the door handles, frenching the headlights, the addition of hood vents along the sides, custom made rear fender skirts, frenched 59 Cadillac taillights and a third brake light molded into the trunk lid. Best of all the car is fitted with a Carson lift off top, very light weight and easy to remove for cruising under the sun. The interior is finished in red leather trimmed with dark grey piping on the power adjustable seats and compliment the exterior nicely. Behind the billet aluminum flame pattern steering wheel is a set of AutoMeter gauges including oil pressure, water temp, volts, fuel and speed housed in a smoothed dash painted the same candy apple red as the body. Under the dash is a console with a CD cassette player and a tachometer. Moving this rolling artwork down the road is a crate 351CID Windsor engine rated at 450HP that has been dressed up with aluminum valve covers, sparkplug wire holders, dual filter air cleaner, chrome alternator, chrome A/C pump, billet pulleys, chrome flex hoses, billet overflow tank and the engine is topped with an aluminum intake and polished Holly four barrel carburetor. The engine is hooked to a C-6 three speed automatic transmission that runs to a 12 bolt rear-end. If that wasn’t enough this car rides on air with the pump and tanks tucked behind a hinged panel in the truck. The touch of a switch this car goes from the super low lead sled look to sitting up high ready for running down the road or to make speed bumps easier to clear. Other options on this 1947 Mercury Convertible include Heat and A/C (need hoses ran), AM/FM radio, cassette/CD player, removable top, power brakes, power steering, power locks, power seats, power windows, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, keyless entry, ride control, leather interior, white wall tires, and aluminum/alloy rims.
