Howdy. Just introduced myself in the newcomer thread. Wanted to start a thread about my new project - 1955 Mercury Monterey. This is my first old car and I have only done small stuff to it so far (like apply for my title!). Here's a little info about it: 2 door 292 or 312 Y-block (will be taking oil pan off this week to determine) think the original paint was butter yellow with black top (will be trying to decipher number soon-see picture) vacuumed out the rat poo and acorns washed windows. I've got a manual on its way in the mail. Not planning on doing an original restoration job, but do want it to run clean and look nice. Might be needing a little help along the way, so I'll be putting questions in this thread.
