My friend you have a beautiful 1951 Mercury and you should be proud of.
Neat thread. Lots of great before and afters. Mine is still in progress. Little changes don't look like much at this point.
I can play. This is my truck when I bought it
And this is it 2 years later
I really enjoyed this rebuild....got it cheap...spent a boat load on it...and then it would not go over 52mph...so we sold it...I called it "Howard Knapp"...it even smelled like an old heap...
Before, when I drug it home:
And after, when I sold it:
The start of my Model A coupe:
Built a frame for it:
Ended up looking like this:
Car has since been sold to western Canada, if any one has seen it, would be interested to hear about it or see pictures of how it has evolved.
I know it just barely squeeks into HAMB. Been and still is a good ride. Original with a tired 350/350, broken Cragar copy wheels and sun bleached interior.
58,000 miles later a new 406/700R4, new interior, new wheels and good for another 50,000 miles. A good solid ride.
Here another 1 did. 1934 Plymouth coupe. Looked cool when I got it. And relized it was really cobbled together. Did a complete rebuild, chopped, channeled, big block with a Clutch-flite. 57 - 64 Olds rear.
