    I owned a 51 Merc tudor once ,however i was 16 and it wasnt nearly as solid as your 49 is.I only paid $395.00 for it and it was a tudor ,so you can imagine what shape it was in.It never got finished because i got into girls ,and i didnt have much $ as a teenager .My dad hauled it off to some land in the country he owned and it sat there for a few years.One day i got interest in it again and decided to go get it and haul it back home to mess with it .When i got out there with a trailer to pick it up ,it was gone .Thats right, someone stole it .It was sitting on some land ,out east of Denton Texas and it was about 92 or so when it was stolen.If the person that snagged it is reading this ,i hope your happy for stealing a young mans dream .BTW ,i dig your 49 ,and good luck with it.I hope to own another 49-51 tudor one day ...

    Know how you feel...and felt ! Am 50 years old... owned every 63 ford that ever was. Always wanted a decent 63 Mercury Maruarder, but couldn't find one that I could afford or was worthy of the money.Thanks to e-bay, I waited til the auction ended... No sale... called the guy... Going after it the week of Oct.12... and can't WAIT ! Feel like a kid in a candy store. Congrats !!!!! Happy Motoring.

    Oh and there is a pic of my old 50 Merc floating around here, it was a satin black car with lowered tail lights, so you can see it. Prostockjohn's merc progress thread I think?

    Chris...I still have the 4 door chopped Merc... It's been to the swap meet a couple of times and got a lot of trade offers but no one seems to have the cash... pretty common deal these days.
