Hello every one from New Mexico the my name is manny Well I recently bought my wife her dream car a 1950 Merc we originally were looking for a 49 2 door merc but she saw this one i found on craigslist in Dallas TX and fell in love at first sight she loves the suicide doors in the back. well plans are give it a chop top and Chassis wise im just going to update to disk and put drop spindles we will have air ride on it. the rear end will be notched and 4 linked to get her low to the ground, motor wise it still has the original flat head v8 witch i will be swapping out for a crate engine v8 chevy. to my amazement the floor is dammm solid a little sand blasting and man it will be ready honestly. there is no major rust on it i was super surprised but still in the tear down phase so if i find some other then surface rust ill he a happy camper. oh as far as work to be done well i will be doing everything minus painting it but everything else is well i guess you can say Manny's Garage Customs lol stay tuned and for you mercury vet builders please don't hesitate to give me you input and knowledge if its sarcastic well i was a Marine so i have heard worse lol thanks and god bless and again stay tuned im gonna be going any chance i get on the car.
