    What we have here is a 1947 Mercury convertible that I bought here on the HAMB back 2 years ago. I was an old custom that had shaved door handles and an early hemi. The floors and trunk were pretty bad and the gas tank was full of dirt. The motor and transmission were long gone, but it came with a ton of parts. I started working on it slowly but velocity increased and here we are running and driving today. Perfect car for ice cream on Sunday afternoons. The photos I have down loaded are the "in process" photos, so let me know if you would like more detailed pictures. 2019-02-01 20.01.10.jpg Here is what has been done:
    Completely rebuilt 8BA flathead to stock specifications
    Rebuilt Ford 3 speed transmission
    Complete rewiring from bumper to bumper with modern fuses
    Rebuilt brakes, new brake lines, and updated suspension
    Drop axle by Andy Kohler
    Reversed main leaf front and rear
    Hydro dipped dash and garnish mouldings
    New Autometer guages - all working!
    New TANKS fuel tank and fuel lines
    New radiator
    Factory 15 x 5 inch wheels painted and double pin striped
    New interior with factory front and rear seats
    New windshield
    All door risers and glass are in great condition
    Door and truck handles work as they should
    Cowl vent is stock and operational
    Factory floors were cut out of a 2 door sedan and welded in, and a new truck floor was welded in
    Rear fenders were repaired of rust on bottom front edges

    Here is what is still missing:
    Paint job
    Convertible top
    A driver.

    In addition to the car you get ALL of the extra parts (bring a U Haul truck) including front and rear fenders, hood, garnish , trim trim and trim etc etc. Contact me for more photos or any questions you might have. I have a clear title in hand. Thanks - Curt 704-918-6 two seven two
