ILL DO MY BEST
Took the land yacht out today
My 49 Merc and my friends 51
Love your car out at the lake picts, thanks. JW
Been having cooling issues with the merc change the thermostat and
Flushed the radiator I’ll need too get a new electric fan
Iron brushed the radiator it’s from a now defunct company outside of Chicago
Took the old electric fan out
New fan in and it works
Al Glickmans Merc on top toward the end of pg 1, built in the early 50's and was a little books or Hot Rod cover car.
@Austinrod really liked the pairing with the Hardtop they truly connect on so many levels...
Super Bitchin' Congratulations
The Hopup cover, yours should be on a cover too, its a perfect mild custom from the 50's
I know it’s personal choice but I thought the air cleaner made the engine compartment. I gutted a 56 Ford with the circle on the front to take a paper style air filter and hid the modern carb.
Your Merc was a great find and I’m sure you will be fixing all the stuff that bugs you…
Getting ready for car shows
No boot yet ? Convertibles look unfinished without a boot.
So are you gonna build your Merc like this one. You do know why they placed the golf bags beside the car don`t you ? On both sides even. So is is it Beckman or Glickman ?
Glickman, I remembered it wrong.
Stanlow69, tell me about the golf bags, I don't know what you mean? JW
No I'm not building my Merc like this one. Mine is this one. I gave to my son a couple of years ago.
The upward swing of the Merc body line to accept the Olds (?) rear quarters shape.
An 80 yr old wanted my 49 merc so bad he bought it!
Off too find another survivor
It's gone...just like that......well congrats and can't wait to see what comes your way next...you have a way of finding the cool ones...
