1950 Mercury ‘Max Grundy’ Chopped Coupe

(link)

Description:

Red Hills Rods and Choppers Inc., is very proud to present to the public, the infamous 1950 ‘Max Grundy’ Mercury Coupe, one of the most recognized and certainly one of the baddest Chopped Merc’s on the planet! After sitting in a field in Idaho since the early 60’s, painter / illustrator / graphic designer Max Grundy, very well known in the Kustom Hot Rod Kulture, acquired this 1950 Mercury Coupe and started what was to become a 13 year venture of building his dream Mercury. He was 19 years old at the time and always dreamed of building a custom Mercury, as his father had done when Max was just a boy. When he first got the Merc it had faint lettering on the jockey box that read ‘Lonely Boy’, a name that has stuck, hence the cool logo with the candle burning at both ends. Anyway, Max, with the help of his father and brother, started chipping away at the Merc immediately after getting it home, but there was only so much they could do with their limited experience, so it was decided to take the Merc to Bo Huff in Dragerton Utah, to get the body work started. After Bo did the initial chop, it sat in Max’s parents garage in Utah for another five years before Max brought it back to Southern California to finish what he had started. Max took the Merc to Aaron Valencia @ Hellbound Hot Rods, who completed the bodywork and turned Max’s car into one of the meanest Kustom Merc’s on the planet! She was chopped 5.5”, nosed, decked, everything was shaved, and ’54 Ford frenched headlights were added, then finished in a ultra-cool shade of Flat Military Green, which gives this Merc that ominous appearance like no other. Pop-open the door and you immediately notice that the Military vibe carries over into the interior, with the bench seat finished in an Army brown style w/ Battleship Grey dash & upper doorframes. If you’ve ever seen Max Grundy’s work, then you know that much of his art has a WWII theme, which he carried over while designing this ’50 Merc. The interior qualities match the exterior perfectly, with its colors & design very much thought out ahead of time. The Battleship Grey dash was customized beautifully and has an aircraft feel that is impossible to deny. Interior features include: full set of Classic Instruments gauges, Aircraft type switches & Riveted Panels, ’55 Ford Steering Wheel, Hand-Built Steering Column, Genie 23” Shifter w/ Custom Shift Knob, Original Heater (functional) and ‘Lonely Boy’ logo artwork on glove box. Again, the interior matches the one-of-a-kind exterior perfectly. All of the gauges, lights, blinkers, etc., work beautifully. Now let’s get to the meat & potatoes, shall we? Sitting on a 1972 Pontiac GTO chassis, w/ GTO suspension, steering & brakes, this 1950 Mercury Chopped Coupe drives like a dream! Powered by a 400 ci SBC motor featuring: Cal-Custom Finned Valve Covers, Chrome Block Hugger Headers, Cadillac Air Cleaner, Edelbrock Intake Manifold, Edelbrock 600 cfm Carburetor, Chrome Alternator and custom built Aluminum Radiator w/ Dual Fans, she performs as good as she looks! The 400 SBC is linked to a TH400 3-Speed Automatic Transmission which shifts super smooth & crisp like a new car. This Kustom jewel has loads of power & torque and is an absolute blast to drive. She starts, idles, runs, drives, steers and brakes beautifully in every way. Unlike most custom cars, the lake pipes are completely functional and sound incredible! In fact, if you open up the 2013 Mooneyes Catalog, you will find the ‘Lonely Boy’ featured on page 35 in the lake pipe section. This Merc also has the perfect stance, sitting on 15” steel wheels w/ Mooneyes Starburst Discs and brand new Coker Classic Whitewall tires on all four corners. Of course, she’s got the Air Ride System in the rear, so you can totally control where you want her to sit at all times. From any angle, whether it’s day or night, this Chopped Merc looks perfect, period. This is a very rare opportunity to own a very special 1950 Mercury Coupe that has been owned and customized by some of the biggest names in the Kustom Kulture world. It has been painted and/or drawn by some of the best Automotive Artists on the planet and has been recognized as one of the baddest Mercs on earth! There is a plethora of information on the Internet regarding this very special car; simply google ‘Max Grundy Mercury’ and you can read all about it. If you have been searching for a one-off custom that is unlike any other and will only appreciate in value in the coming years, look no further. Enclosed shipping is available anywhere in the world at the buyer’s expense.
