Amazing 1951 Custom FORD Mercury with air suspension

Watch Now! Custom Ford Mercury 1951 with air suspension

Called the Mercury Eight, the model years between 1949 to 1951 Up until the late 1950s, a vehicle brand was widely defined by a single car representing their entire portfolio.

The Mercury became a cultural icon for early street rodding and automotive modifications thanks to its appearance in the James Dean classic picture ‘Rebel Without a Cause’.

Making a much smaller cultural impact in 1986, a Mercury also appeared in the Sylvester Stallone movie Cobra where a hot rod version of the vehicle served as the scruffy police officer’s mode of transportation. However, an interesting factoid from ‘Cobra’ is the movie’s star Stallone was the actual owner of the 1950 Mercury.
