its a 53,
here's a before shot.
Ive got a solid 50 rear package shelf and an upper cowl section if anyone is interested. Trades? ETHER
So,that's the one you've been hiding! When you gonna bring it to breakfast?
TECH: I know most have seen this but I did a tech on installing 54 Merc lenses in a 51. View it here:
Great Ether! This is the perfect place for it!!!
that 39merc is sick as fuck . just pick up a 40merc hope it is on the road by summer
Hmm I sold my OT 1998 Formula turbo car on Friday, maybe I should pick this up now:
northern skink's '50
Looks like what you wanted to do with the '51. Already caged!!! You're good to go!
How you been? Didn't see you at the Primer Nats! Wanted to see if you had repainted the '49. Came out great...slddnmatt does some fantastic work!!!
I'm in, I've got a '51 two-door. I would have to go out and move way too much stuff to take pictures of it though, so you'll just have to believe me. By the way, my two favorite Mercs are over in Sweden - J.B.'s '39 or '40 and Tinwolfs '51.
I'm in. My '51 I bought last month.
Here's the INFO you asked me about. I'll post it on here in case any other guys want to lower their Mercs.
MOOG PN CC850 1990 Ford Aerostar springs,lowers it about 3", $65.
4" blocks are easy and cheap,about $30.
I`ve got the best part a 51 merc motor can I play ?
Here are some pictures of my 1940 Merc, work in progress. And my other junk 1949 Merc, work in progress.
Got my 50 but I'm a retard at postin pics.
I've been doing good. Stayin busy working. couldn't make it down South for primer. Let me know if you are coming to Sac in Feb. you are welcome to stay at my house, i live about 55 min from Sac and have plenty of room.
Thanks, Bob, for posting the pic and for the lowering info!
I've got two pre-64 and 1 post-64.
Both pre-64 cars are Merc Comets.
The 60 in my avatar ( and below ) and the 62 S-22 below.
Wife has an O/T 04 Mountaineer.
count me in!,even when both of my cars are piles of crap,i just don't know how to upload the pics here..
Thanks for the invite and posting some pictures of my Merc.
Hey Bob, Mine is a 50... I also have a 49 Coupe and a 50 4dr parts car. And dont forget about my 39 and my 40 Merc Coupes too.....
And where it gets worked on.
I have a '64 Park Lane. Haven't started on it yet though.
It was my dads. Him and his original one circa 1968.
Would you let a 59 in? I'd understand if you didnt, I dont even ever call it a merc, I refer to it as a mercury cause its an oddball.
Oh yeah...I'm in. I just moved so have not been able to get on for a while but as soon as I find my digital camera I will get some new photos up. Does any one besides these damn cows live in Ontario...I would like to find a spot to hang out.
I see Sled hasn´t seen or responded yet,
BUT,,,,,, I am sure he will be in.
I will just tag along at this time, as I only work on them.
pics of my peaches...might have to get my coupe ready for Mooneyes and definately for sacramento!!
