This 1950 Mercury must be seen in person to fully appreciate since it is likely the most impressive Lead Sled in the country at this time- and it has many “Best in Show” awards to prove it. It’s been driven a mere 7,668 miles as well since it underwent an extensive multiyear restoration where no expense was spared.
Extensive, Multi-Year Restoration w/ No Expense Spared
This 1950 Mercury Lead Sled Convertible was professionally restored in 2001 in Hudson, Florida and it has remained in a private collection since 2008. The multi-year restoration included chopping the roofline 4” and fully customizing this classic from the ground up. Just the chrome work itself took over 140 hours of fabrication, polishing and etching, while the body required hundreds of additional hours to shape from raw sheet medal and than paint to perfection. Then there’s the custom leather work throughout the interior, a hand-made front grille, custom bumpers, the embossed trunk…the list goes on and on with spectacular customizations.
Additionally, this 1950 Mercury Lead Sled Convertible was featured in an Autorama TV documentary show and has won several prestigious awards throughout the Southeast, including best in show at the St. Petersburg Car & Truck Show. It appears in excellent condition today after being driven less than 8,000 miles over the past two decades, but this pristine classic is certainly much more than just a show car. It could be used as a weekend driver or driven across the country if the next owner wished; it is essentially still a brand new custom classic all these years later.
Truth be told, it may be the most outstanding example in the nation and it has a strong chance of taking best in show honors on virtually any stage.
Easily the Most Pristine, Sought-After Example Nationwide
Overall, this 1950 Mercury Lead Sled Convertible is a show-stopping work of art that borders on museum quality. While we never represent any classic as “perfect”, we do not believe you’d be able to find a more perfect example anywhere in the nation at this time- at any price point. This spectacular build easily went well into the six-figure mark and one lucky collector is going to receive a steal of a lifetime with this classic.
