You are bidding on a Professionally-built, amazing-looking and BEAUTIFUL '51 Mercury Custom coupe. This was known as the ROLLY MERCURY. She looks, runs and drives like a brand new car! This Merc is TURN-KEY, needs nothing but you in the seat! This awesome Lead Sled is BEAUTIFUL and includes modern touches! Here's your chance to have one and priced significantly lower than building one! Body is in amazing condition with none of the usual cracks and spider webbing found on older rods. The GORGEOUS House of Kolors Tangi-glow Pearl paint is eye-catching with that pearl glow and deep wet look everyone's after. The Corvette LT-1 has plenty of power, with the nice rumble you'd expect but not overstated. This car handles nicely from the air ride suspension and is a joy to cruise with the automatic 700R4 overdrive transmission. The interior is modern as well with nice comfy leather seats, power windows and the all-important ICE COLD Air Conditioning. Turnkey! Fly in and drive this one home!

Other info: The body and chassis are in excellent condition!! However, since no car that is actually driven is absolutely perfect - there are a few minor flaws, micro-stone impacts on front. They are minor enough to leave alone - but could be touched up if you are looking for absolute perfection. Just being very picky for the very picky.

Note: as we listed this on EBAY a part broke and a repair will be needed. The hood lock mechanism needs a new return spring. The hood will not lock completely down since the spring is broken. The safety latch will keep the hood from coming up until the repair is made.

Since it's been road driven... exterior and chassis detailing would be needed for show competition.

Front and rear bumpers have a few flaws, nothing major. Rechroming might be needed for show competition.

There are also "manual release cables" for the doors and trunk in case of a dead battery or you lock your keys in.

Some detailing of the interior may be needed along with a little regluing of the door-panel material around the storage holder. Some of the material is let loose, nothing major, just wanted to mention it.

Car comes with two set of keys with remotes, and clear Ohio title showing 2,671 NON-ACTUAL: WARNING Odometer Discrepancy due to it being built as a custom. The odometer shows 13,974 miles.


I realize that it is difficult to purchase a vehicle you may not be able to inspect in person. I build vehicles too - so I try to show you everything I would want to see if I was buying a vehicle for myself. As you can see by my feedback (100% positive), I describe my vehicles accurately. I have sold other vehicles on eBay to happy buyers worldwide so you can be confident when making a purchase.

I have made my best effort to accurately represent the car based on my expertise as a vehicle builder, what I have observed in evaluating it and preparing it for sale, and what I have been told by the owner, but this is the extent of my knowledge. Please ask questions before bidding! This is being solid AS IS with no warranty or guarantees and is up to the buyer to verify any and all info listed above in the description! This vehicle is also for sale locally. You are welcome to arrange a viewing of this vehicle. Again, this is a classic vehicle that has been driven and enjoyed. It's not perfect or a museum piece so there may be minor imperfections in the body, brite work and glass. Anything to note is listed above.

Terms: Contact must be made by the buyer within 48 hours and a non-refundable $1,500 Paypal deposit is due within 48 hours of end of auction close, balance due within 7 days of auction close as bank wire only. Due to space limitations and other upcoming auctions, buyer MUST take possession within 7 days of auction close unless other arrangements are agreed upon. I do not finance. No trade or barter.

I am not responsible for any fees or taxes associated with registration, license plates or any out-of-pocket costs. Nor am I responsible for emissions compliance. Buyer is responsible for all state, county, city taxes & fees as well as title, registration, license plates and emissions compliance in the State/County that the vehicle will be registered. No warranty, sold as is.

Shipping is the Buyer's responsibility. I will not ship but will work with your shipping company. A list of contact information for some of the shipping companies previous Buyers have used can be provided upon request for your quotation and shipping needs. Pick-up arrangements (by the Buyer or the shipping company) must be coordinated in advance to insure myavailability since I am often in and out on business. Local delivery may be possible within 200 miles of zip code 44056 for an extra charge. Buyer is responsible for all shipping and related arrangements and payments. Vehicle must be paid in full before it leaves my premises.

Insurance: I highly recommend that the buyer put insurance on the vehicle upon purchase as I am not responsible for any damage incurred after leaving my premises.

Good luck and happy bidding!
