1939 Mercury 99A Custom Convertible

Vehicle Details

This custom Mercury convertible’s professional nut-and-bolt, ground-up restoration began in 2003 and was completed in January 2006. It features a modified and reinforced '39 frame, Fat Man front end, QA1 coilovers, Wilwood disc brakes and Currie Enterprises rear leaf springs. It’s powered by a 350/370hp crate engine mated to a TH400 automatic transmission with a Ford 9” Traction-Lok rear end.

This custom convertible is equipped with power steering and brakes, Moroso quick-jump terminals and battery disconnect, and has been modified with a 4” chop, smoothed doors and trunk, molded fenders and Studebaker taillights. The leather interior features a Flaming River steering column, Vintage Air and a 300-watt Secretaudio sound system. This meticulously maintained convertible was the recipient of a Top Ten Award at the 2006 Goodguys East Coast Nationals and a 2008 George Barris Best in Show Award.
