    "REAL" Mercury trucks were only made from 1946 to 1968 ...... Kyle

  11. The "Sanford and Son" junkyard truck was a Mercury. I had seen the truck, with the documentation from the studio, in a collection in Colorado that has been since sold off, after the owner died.

    Most of the Ford truck line was also available as Mercurys with maybe a very few exceptions. Even the school buses were also available as Mercurys, but I don't think I recall seeing any documented Parcel Delivery trucks or early cab-over trucks ("C" line). All of the "F" line of Ford trucks were renamed into the "M" line (i.e. M-100 was a twin of the F-100).

    My truck has Mercury badges, but the serial number plate tells a different story. The serial number starts with "F", so the hood probably came from a different truck. The tailgate is stamped "MERCURY", but is an older style that doesn't match the year of my truck (matches the '48-'52 style).

    True Mercurys are not easy to find in good or restorable condition, mine is going to get Ford badges when I get around to doing the body work and paint.

    To the original poster, if you have any questions you can't find an answer to, let me know and I'll see if I can help you.
