This is the Hot Rod and Full Custom that dominated the 50’s and 60’s the 49 – 50 Merc LEADSLED. We have done all the hard work for you. We Chopped, Channeled, Shaved, Decked, Louvered, and Frenched it. Our top notch fiberglass Lead Sled ( without any lead ) is now the ultimate way to own the most customized classic in American history.

BODY

49-50_body.jpgIncludes body with 6" chop, front fenders and grill section molded as one, frenched headlights, inner front fender splash panels which also support the front end, hood with inner liner that accommodates hinges and hood latch, doors with inner liners, trunk lid with liner, floor with removable transmission tunnel cover, firewall and garnish moldings.

Hand-crafted fiberglass laminate featuring: hand laid layers of fiberglass, durable gelcoat surface and an inner core, providing high strength and superior surface quality. All high stress areas are reinforced with heavy woven roving [woven strands fiberglass at 90 degrees, used in most boat manufacturing] providing the strongest most durable body in the industry.

No fiberglassing required: All inner components, floor, firewall, trunk liners and door liners are pre-glassed and bonded in place. Doors and trunk liners are bonded together in the molds with custom fixtures for precise and accurate placement.

Door frames and dash are supported with steel structure for stability and solid mounting of hinges and latches.

Trunk hinge pivots are steel reinforced, precisely located and fiberglassed in place.

Doors and trunk lid come hinged to the body using taped sandwich plates behind inner liners for strength and adjustablity.

Doors are latched with bear claw rotary safety latches.

Door window track are installed in doors.

We mold our own bodies, utilizing our 30 years experience in the fiberglass industry. Our bodies are so well aligned that we remove all flash lines [lines formed from seams in multiple piece molds] from the gelcoat surface. All fiberglass components go through our 12 point total cure process, insuring no post cure, and are inspected at each step of production. Every component is machined buffed to insure that the surface is even and flat.

These features combine to give our customers with the highest quality body and ease of assembly.
