    Just picked up a '53 merc. All there except motor and trans. Thinking about a T.P.I and a 700r 4 trans. I already have the engine. Any tips from you guys would be great.

    I was jesting about the body style as you can see in my avatar.. Gotta admit the 49-50 and the 56 are all three icons of the badge..

    A 50 Tudor would probably be my second lust.
