'49 Mercury Convertible, 255 Flathead V8, 3-Speed, Snazzy Red Upholstery!

Welcome to Street Dreams as we celebrate our 23rd year in the classic and muscle car business. As America emerged from WWII, automobile stylists were forced to dust off their prewar designs because arms production had supplanted auto manufacturing during the war. The race was on for a new look that would capture the hearts (and wallets!) of the rapidly expanding middle class in postwar America. Ford, including their Mercury division, was the first of the "Big Three" American manufacturers to cash in on the new "envelope" bodies that blended fenders and doors into one cohesive form. Mercury's model, the Eight, proved so popular as customized 'lead sleds' that most of these classics have been altered beyond the point of being restorable. Our striking 1949 Mercury Eight Convertible is a cool example of one of the coolest cars to ever come from Detroit. Yes, junior, just Google 'James Dean'! Lift the deeply sculpted hood and you'll find the correct (8CM) 255 ci Mercury flathead V8 that breathes freely through a set of Fenton exhaust manifolds that empty into a true dual exhaust system. Additional features include a 3-speed manual transmission, beautiful bright red upholstery, fender skirts, and classic 7.10-15 wide whitewall tires. Please take a moment to view the outstanding condition of the floor pans and frame in the chassis images provided. Wow. As one of only 16,765 Mercury Eight convertibles produced in '49, and a much smaller number of survivors, exclusivity is a given. One more jewel from the team that can make your dream a reality. Street Dreams (830-997-1950) is a full service dealership that can assist with worldwide delivery, insurance, and financing options.
