39 / 40 Mercury's - Photos...

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Mai Ki-Ki, Mar 6, 2007.

  1. Got a bunch of great shots from Rikster's Site...

    http://public.fotki.com/Rikster/11_...rs/39-40_mercury_custo/kent_vikmos_40_merc-1/

    But wondering who has one on here....? and any more photos....?

    Also what the differences are between a 39 and a 40.....so far the dash looks different and the front grille dips to a peak on the 40 as opposed to a 39 where it finishes off 'flat'....anything else different...?

    Cheers

    Grille/ hood
    tail lights
    bumpers
    dash
    bolt pattern/ wheels- went from "artillery" to wide 5

  4. Awesome 40!
    and thanks for the info....if i get the 39 i'm after I'll have to look at modifying the grille to a 40 style set-up.

    Also the rear fenders are different. 39's have a much smaller wheel opening compared to a 40. 39 Coupes do not have vent windows,40's do.
     
  6. Maiki, I'll try and remember to get some shots of Choppers one Friday night at his monthly get together. Or you could cruise on out :D
     
  7. Cool, thanks!

    Didn't know chopper had one!
    Haven't seen any around these parts....

    Oh can you possibly email me a pic of your Model A? (side shot...?)
    *wink wink* for reference.

    Cheers

    Choppers got a 40 coupe, he chopped at the Kustom Nats. Carps should have some pics.
     
  9. Here is the one that I started a year ago and just not have had time to go back onto it. This will change after round up since my new shop is almost finished and I can get back on it. Once that happens there will be more post of the progress.

  10. Nice Jive Bomber, makes me glad I got those 41 Stude tails. I'm also loving the color.

    Anyone know if 40 Mercury front and rear fenders from a sedan are the same as convertible and coupe models?
