    That look like Terry Hegmans Merc, if so, it is one of the best. You should have seen in the Rodders Journal in bare metal, unbelievable.

    I have had my Merc for about 2 years now. It's been patiently waiting for me to get to it. Life gets in the process you know and it took longer than I thought. Even offered it for sale a couple times with no takers. But I have been stashing parts I find all along.

    So the last couple of weeks I've been finding the time to get after it. Installed a 401/TH400, had the seat upholstered, found most of the missing trinkets (horn center, some trim, etc. ) installed the glass, then moved onto the ride height this last week.

    I'm close to having it on the road and as you all know these cars are just a little harder to find the right parts for and when you do you better just pay the man. So the process requires patience.

    But It's nice to be able to post a couple pictures of the before and after.

  10. Not the Terry Hegman Merc. That car was built by Matt Townsend and South City Rod and Custom for Nick Rogers and was know as the "Ruggiero Merc"
    This is the Hegman Merc.

    Wow K13, I can't believe I mixed the two up! The Ruggiero Merc and Hegmans Merc are both examples of what I consider perfection to be. Thanks for the clarity.

    If this is the same Mercury that I saw at Pistons & Paint a couple of years ago. I wouldn't change a thing. It was purrfect, looked like it rolled right out of a show room floor. I'll see if I can find my pics.

    It would be hard to fight the temptation to chop it... Lol!

    Here’s my 51 with original flathead and 6 volt. Getting a hop up soon! Still looking for a pair of Fenton 8BA heads if anybody has them![​IMG]
