Drenched in a stunning Volvo Wine Maroon paint, this 1949 Mercury Lead Sled named ""Lil Suzi"" is a sight to behold. Built by the legendary Dick Brown of Scarborough, Maine, this custom creation began its journey as a '50 Lincoln with a 4"" longer wheelbase before undergoing a jaw-dropping transformation. Chopped 4"" for a sleeker profile, the rounded and louvered hood catches the eye, while the shaved door handles, nosed hood, and decked trunk lid .....
create an uninterrupted silhouette that demands attention. The shaved roof drip rails and frenched headlight & tail light housings add to the smooth, custom look, while the fender skirts and Olds wheel covers complete the vintage aesthetic.

Inside, the saddle-hued interior is a work of art, featuring cut and sewn wool carpets, pleated seats, and door panels that beckon you to settle in for the ride of a lifetime. The chrome-plated dash and steering column add a touch of elegance, while the '51 Lincoln steering wheel puts you in command of this rolling masterpiece. From the moment you step inside, it's clear that no detail was overlooked in crafting this one-of-a-kind interior.

Under the polished exterior lies a powerhouse 276 CI Flathead engine, equipped with Ross pistons, a Howard M7 camshaft, and a Mallory dual-point ignition to ensure a thrilling drive every time. The Navarro aluminum heads and three Stromberg 97 carbs with an Offenhauser intake make this engine a true marvel of engineering. Paired with a 3-speed manual transmission and an original-style Dana axle, this Lead Sled is ready to conquer the road with style and grace. And with newer Ridetech bags in the back, you can count on a smooth, comfortable ride no matter where the journey takes you.
