I bought this as a stocker in 1990 and got body work to this point before selling it in 2005. Current owner got it running and driving. Note to self .... get all future projects running, driving, stopping before doing all the custom body work. Helps to keep the fire burning on a long project when you can get in, turn the key and have some fun during the build.
Love the Merc, Bill. Too bad she got away..........E
You're a wise man.....
Bill, look threw your pictures. It has been in Salina.
This is one awesome Merc
Built over 30 years ago.
Looks like one of my favorite Mercs featured in Custom Rodder magazine is getting a refreshed.
Man, that looks like an early pic from Street Rodder years ago about Mercs.
Nice Merc. I saw that car at the CCR last year and spoke to the owner. I think he really wanted a Hudson as he used 48 Hudson tail lights. I mentioned to him that my 48 Hudson had early Merc tail lights and so I went home and changed the rear to fit 48 Hudson tail lights as they looked so good on his Merc. Added over riders that incorporated the indicators.
Dave Wolk is a great guy and a very talented builder. The '48 Hudson Tail light bezels on his Mercury are Kustom made. Only two sets out there, McPhail has the other set on his '41 Buick.
Yes Mickey I heard about his custom made Hudson lights. The original ones have different dimensions on the chrome bezel side to side to allow them to sit on the Hudson body but that wouldn't work on the flat fenders on a Mercury. Here is a photo looking down to show the difference. He had his made to have equal sides. We slightly changed the position on mine to have them lower on the fender and more central on the body seam.A fair bit of work to do it.
