    Why not? Picked up this 46 from Salt Racer. It spent it's entire life in the Ft. Worth area and been in storage since 61. Somebody painted it with a brush prior to storage and Salt Racer clear coated it. In the process of rebuilding the engine right now. When that's DSCN2826.JPG DSCN2827.JPG done, I think I'm going to leave it just the way it is for awhile and drive it.

    Some pictures of my Mercs.......
    The 1950 4 door used to be my daily driver when I lived in Bogota, Colombia. Picture was taken before I re-chromed the bumpers. I still have it in storage there, hoping someday I will be able to bring it over.
    Now I am building a 1949 mild chopped 2 door coupe in Brasil. Parts are primed and wraped. There is a photo of it before primming so you can see how the top chop came out. Now it is in a car shop building the new suspension.

    THE 'KID' FROM 1950'S UOTE="Bad Bob, post: 3286240, member: 11371"]511[​IMG]

    A little Brian Setzer for inspiration...(click the link)



    I just started a HAMB Merc Club for the guys on here who OWN Mercurys. 1939-1965. I've seen Duece clubs,Banger clubs,etc. Thought it might be a great way to share ideas and info,parts chasing,how to's.....chopping,lowering,wiring,tech,etc..

    I made a list of the guys who I knew owned Mercs on here so that's a start. How bout it?

    I got my first 49-51 a few weeks ago.
    What is the best option for front suspension? stock upgrades? Camaro clip? Nova clip? MMII ?

    Rebuild what's there with new bushings and such. You can do the Aerostar coils for a 3" drop and they ride nice. There are brake upgrades for the original spindles if desired. Too many Mercs have been ruined by hacked-on frame stubs, often too wide for proper wheel backspacing and requiring wonky steering linkage and column for a front steer box, it's bad news. They steer just fine with a properly sized steering wheel and bias tires.

    That '49 looks like a worthy project. I've always liked the '49 rear window, dash, and parking lights best of all of the midcentury Mercs.

    I got these pics from my Buddy, his brother in law owns the cars, he's sick and unable to finish them. My Son in Law and I are going to look at them tomorrow, I'll know more about them then. Might just bring them home!!

    Ok, what a beautiful day for a ride on the 'ol Harley. We rode 62 miles to meet my Buddy, who is the afore mentioned Brother in Law of the owner of these two Mercs. My Son in Law rode about the same distance from another direction. Now were here, lets take a look. Oh, I don't like this, Wow, that's not good, Oh shit, that ain't good. The garnish mouldings are not cut to fit the doors or windows, the drip rails on the '51 are filled with bondo to blend them into the roof line, the deck lid hinges on the '51 were rusted, someone forced the deck lid open and the inner supports were pulled away from the skin, there was not a straight panel on the '51, the floor was rusted along with the trunk floor, the roof was full of " Oil Cans" . It did have part of the engine in it. One head was off and the #4 piston was sticking out of the block, it did have a nice air cleaner and oil filter!! The '50 had new rocker panels laying inside the car, the rusty take off quarters were also inside. This car had slanted B pillars, the chop was a lot nicer than the '51. Rust on the floor under the rear seat, also in the trunk and lower B pillars. All in all it was a sad day. To see these two Mercurys sitting end to end with so much potential yet so much ROT, was IMG_2163[2912].jpg IMG_2158[2908].jpg IMG_2157[2907].jpg IMG_2156[2905].jpg IMG_2155[2906].jpg IMG_2154[2904].jpg IMG_2153[2903].jpg IMG_2151[2901].jpg IMG_2150[2900].jpg heart breaking. Don't get me wrong, they could be saved, but the Savior has a lot more talent and money than I do. The real Bitch is, the owner has watched to many episodes of Gas Monkey and now he thinks these things are worth Many Thousands of dollars, know what I mean Vern!! We took the back roads home, stopped for dinner and a Cocktail and enjoyed a real nice ride back to the house. Amen

    Question,

    What size tire are you guys all running? I know 7.10’s were what came on the mercs back in the day however I plan on lowering mine a lot and don’t want thing to rub.

    Thanks!

    Hey fellas, just bought another 51 Merc coupe. I’m looking to bag it and was wondering what’s the front suspension kit people are using these days?
