“Sweet ‘N Low”, a 1950 Mercury 2 Door Sedan

image002

Nothing was overlooked when building Joe Vetter’s 1950 Mercury 2 door sedan, affectionately called “Sweet ‘N Low.”

The corners have been rounded, the headlights have been tunneled and custom rear tail lights were installed, but some of the major body work went into flaring the front fenders, nosing and decking, and filling all of the seams on the Merc.  To top off the exterior, the fuel filler was relocated to the trunk, a 49 rear window was fitted and custom skirts and mirrors were added.  A visor keeps the sun out of your eyes while a swamp cooler keeps Joe cool on the inside.  A stainless steel grill visually announces the arrival of “Sweet ‘N Low.”

Rear air bags and cut front coils give the Merc its stance.  Reverse spindles put the power to wide white wall wrapped 56 Olds spinners turned by a Ford 9″ rear end and reverse spindles.

The Merc is powered by a Chevy 350 adorned with billet and chrome accents.  Connected to the 350 is a Super T-10 4 speed transmission.  Gear changes are made with a rare Mr. Gasket bench seat shifter with a custom shift knob.

Other details into the Mercury include neons, strobes, Buick stripes, pin striping, and an upholstered trunk with spare tire cover.

Sweet ‘N Low is a real 50’s kruzr.

Sweet ‘N Low belongs to Joe Vetter of Lake Havasu, Arizona.  Joe has been into the auto scene for many years.  He’s been in and at car shows in Arizona, California and Nevada.
