We purchased the 1950 Customized Merc in Scottsdale, AZ in 2004. It had been chopped, frenched, nosed, decked, etc...There are over 100 louvers on the hood and it had a 350 motor in it. There was no interior except thrown in newer Cadillac seats. The dash was made of wood (and not pretty wood). We got it a new radiator and drove it to a few shows the summer of 2004.
Winter of 2005 we got down to business. I chopped the front clip off, added a Fat Man's Mustang II front clip complete with 2 inch drop spindles and disc brakes. We bought a 65 Thunderbird for it's seats but ended up taking it's motor and tranny. The motor is a 390 FE block and an FMX transmission. We rebuilt both and they are sitting in the Merc now. We bought a early Ford Galaxie tri-power set up and added that. New wiring, rebuilt driveline, a custom built to order new radiator (from AFCO racing-Great Guys). We also got rid of the wood dash and added a stock one. An Ididit steering column with a mid-60 Ford Truck wheel. We're about to start it up again and see how it goes. (more pics on cardomain.com)
