Car Description

1955 Mercury Meteor Sedan Delivery


Bill Nye the Science Guy describes a Meteor as such: If a meteoroid enters the Earth's atmosphere and vaporizes, it becomes a meteor, which is often called a shooting star.


Built Ford Tuff with Chevy Stuff as this self-described hot rodded version of the somewhat rarely seen Mercury Meteor sedan delivery proclaims on its rear window scribblings. We are gonna take a trip down memory lane, with white fading to turquoise, and pin up girls with flourish pinstriped halos, shaved bumpers and 50's chrome grille.


Exterior

Turquoise blesses the shaved doors, frenched taillights, and upside down front and rear bumpers, now body matching in color. A 1956 Olds gave up its headlights for the front and the toothy Meteor grille complete with centered V drop and star in the middle, also with futuristic 50's style turn signal bezels. Moving rearward the customization continues with a fade to white top that has extended into the window areas and now covers them. Within this panel is some custom airbrush work "cruisin' down memory lane" and a cartoonesque picture of the car. Polished Superior 5 spoke mag wheels highlight all 4 corners and are wrapped with 215/60R15's. Don't forget the pinstripe flourishes replacing the front and rear center badging and ornamentation. The rear door has a pin up gal in a white bikini (queue the wolf whistle!)


Interior

Customization gone wild to say the least with a mixed batch of white leather with turquoise suede accenting going on all over the place. A fine swoop pattern using the two materials covers the door panels which have power windows. We move to the seats which are custom buckets with white bolsters in leather and include a smattering of turquoise suede inserts complete with lumbar support action. A totally custom suede and leather console is seen racing up the center between the seats. This has a backup camera screen inserted, and a cluster of circle designed gauges and a round radio. The metal dash imitates the exterior with a fade from a white topper to the turquoise dash front. A rally style steering wheel is fronting this faded colored dash, and a barefoot style gas pedal is there for some giggles! In the delivery back more suede swoops in turquoise that end at the rear with an M, dual built in wheel well covers with inserted speakers and some aqua carpet flooding the floors. Glass is all new and tinted, and a stereo system has 8 hidden speakers.


Drivetrain

Circa 1986 and newer is when the 350ci V8 was born. It sits in an engine bay bejeweled with plenty of chrome trappings, stainless tubes and a matching turquoise block with snazzy matte gray Alumacote headers. Edelbrock intake and 4-barrel carb provide the fossil and air mixture. A 700 R4 overdrive transmission is strapped to the backside of the 350 cubes and there is a Dana 4.11 rear.


Undercarriage

A 1975 Firebird front clip, 25 gallon fuel tank, Cen-Tech wiring, and 2.5 inch stainless steel pipes are just a few of the highlights underneath is this clean rust free, structurally sound environment we call the undercarriage.


Drive-Ability

I climbed in and lit the 8 candles, and I want to tell you for free, it was like trying to tame a bucking bronco. Prior to putting this beast in gear, be damn sure your foot is planted firmly own the brake, as it wants to go...like hell, and it does. It also provides a smooth ride, good cornering made easier with power steering, and an overall comfortable, all be it loud ride. The backup cam is a nice plus too!


A rare shooting star from mid 1950's Mercury now turned custom hot rod. Blazing colors, and blazing speed is what you can expect when you are planted in the blazing saddle...Whoah cowboy..!
