    Chopped 4 door Merc is interesting, looks like they used '50 baby Lincoln side trim but angled up more in the front. It's got the tail lights to match. Looks like it retains all of the vent wings too. Pretty slick.

    This was my grandpas car he built when it was only a few years old. My uncle has it now. Thanks for posting, it’s good to see it get some attention.

  12. I like it! Does the car still look like that or has your uncle added his own touches? Some current pics would be swell..!

    The car currently looks like this. My uncle and dad redid the interior and my uncle and his boys put a new built flathead in it. I’ll have to dig though some of my photo archives to find more pictures.
