    What we have here is a 1947 Mercury convertible that I bought here on the HAMB back 3 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. Cars runs great and has a very smooth ride. The photos can be seen at this link:

    Here is what has been done:
    Completely rebuilt 8BA flathead to stock specifications
    Powermaster alternator and 12 volt electrical system
    Completely rewired with everything working as it should
    Rebuilt Ford 3 speed transmission
    New factory Ford clutch
    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 to woodgrain
    New coverted 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 trunk 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 reproduction trunk floor was welded in as well.
    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. Will consider a trade plus cash, so let me know what you might have. I have a clear title in hand. Thanks - Curt 704-918-6 two seven two

    I also changed the headlights to LED style with the fluted lenses. It looks stock and works really well.
