1951 Mercury Coupe - Scarlet and Cream

This spectacular 1951 Mercury coupé "Scarlet & Cream" is a beauty painted in two colours, garnet for allmost all the body part and a beautifull cream colour as a detail behind the rear weels, with a cromed finish to separate both colours.

The sparks and paint were flying in Arizona, Earl Floyd Engines and in Portland, Oregon, was freshening up the 276ci Merc Flathead with new bearings and rings. The little mill was topped with Offy heads, finned aluminum accessories, Fenton headers, and three Stromberg 97s on an Offy intake before being delivered to Dean’s for paint and detailing. Earl also rebuilt the original three-speed overdrive transmission.
