    @Austinrod really liked the pairing with the Hardtop they truly connect on so many levels...

    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…

    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 ? IMG_20211017_0001.jpg

  20. 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.
