I've been searching for a Mercury for years but they have always seemed out of my price range. I recently found a pretty decent 51 just a few hours away from Louisville. The original owner had it in a garage until 2007 when a metal fabricator bought it. Unfortunately he passed away and the deal landed in my lap. I contacted Jason Grimes, a guy I've been wanting to work with for a couple years now (best hot rod and custom guy this side of the Ozarks). He was down for the project that I've always wanted to do, a chopped traditionally styled Merc. My idea of traditional might differ from others so keep an open mind. I have been reading the Hamb for quite some time now but recently joined. I'm brand new to Mercs, excuse me if I ask already answered questions. They sound better coming from me. Jk Lol It's been about 10 below outside so I haven't done much. The cars getting moved to Jason's garage in a few weeks. I'll get much better pics. Until then this is what I got.
