Curt, his dad Brian and Erik brought the Cuevas family 1949 Merc to the Sacramento Autorama to compete for the Custom d’Elegance trophy. There was some stiff competition this year from the legendary John D’Agustino as well as a sweet Merc called Ruggerio. The car displayed well but unfortunately did not bring home the honors.
This ’49 has the original flathead in it, 3-speed with factory overdrive. Paint and body were handled by Marcos and the team at Lucky7 and Hill’s did the suspension, completely hidden air-ride, custom tail lights, air cleaner and many other finishing touches. This car is solid as a rock and drives like a dream, just the way Tony Cuevas wants it. Look for it at shows around the area all year!
