    1949 Lincoln/1949 Mercury

    I’ve been thinking of buying a Jamco Suspension kit for my car. Since I have a 49’ Lincoln, anything aftermarket is hard to find. I rather ask, before I purchase anything. Are these chassis similar? Will I be good to go, if I end up buying anything related to a 49’ mercury?

    Cheers
     
  2. no--the frames are different, the lincoln frames are longer.

    they share some of the same front suspension parts, but I am not 100% sure that everything bolts up.

    Yes the frame and front wrap is longer, but I think they still had all big Ford car details underneath. Plus its a Ford product; They didn't change shit like till 25 yrs. later.

    Oh . just for anyone else who reads this post, the dashboards are diff. too.
