My dad had a 49 Merc when he married my mom. I'm sure he wished he kept it. This is a great looking car. Looks fast sitting still.

About

I built this car for my father, he just passed away 2 months ago but we got to enjoy some time together working on this. I shaved everything,eliminated vent windows,flush fit the front and rear glass,reworked the front to look like a 1949 to 1950 and built a custom grill and smooth bumper with molded pan.The engine compartment has been smoothed also with a new firewall and inner fender panels ,I added a crossflow radiator.It has fuel injected 400 small block chevy,I used a holley programmable comander system that is port fuel injected, it works great.Everything on the dash has been eliminated and I tunneled the guages in the dash, it also has tan leather.
