I seem to get in more bs when ASSuming things. A buddy and I split a '55 merc up a few years ago. I kept the rear to use in my T RPU cause I wanted to run wires and wanted the 4.09 gear in it. typical rag from clay country with 3-4" coating the bottom. Blasted and primed the rear,pinion seal and new brakes,good drums. slid it under today,built perches and shock mounts. Went to throw the OLD WW's from the front on and didn't fit. This bitch was as virgin as any car I ever parted out. COULD/ would ford send this bitch out without none matching bolt patterns? found the front end in the inventory and has the same clay BS as the rear had. car was low miles. What bolt pattern should a '55 merc have from the factory? no spare but all 4 rims had the same shade of green. Any info besides i'm scarood?
