Photo of a 1955 Mercury Panel truck (Hiney)

No longer owned


Finished this panel in 1984. Drove it for 3 summers and put about 24000 miles on it. DROVE it to 9 ISCA shows the Winter of 1984-85. Was second in our class nationally against a panel from Arizona but placed first against him in the only head to head competition that we had at the Omaha car show. Drove it 6000 miles that winter. Took it to the nostagia Drags in Wentzville, Mo in 1985 and did a 12.47 in 1000 feet. Weights about 4600 pounds. Had to run against blown Vets and the like but at the end of the weekend we won our class. (Only one that didn't break, lol) and drove it home!


Polished Blown big block chevy/ Automatic, Nova subframe, boxed frame, engine block ground smooth, custom graphics, crager wheels, hydralic tilt front end and hydralic rear doors, not much to mention. All work done by owner at home with the exception of the interior. But did assist with that. Had Hundreds of buttons.
