Default PSJ's 1951 Mercury Build

I have a few bucket list cars, and a chopped 49-51 Merc is one of them.

I bought this car 8 years ago, with plans to repaint and then cruise it.



Paid a custom expert to photoshop the car:

Phase II. Mr Anthony Manna will be dropping a 5.3 carbed LS into the Merc before summer. Yanking the carbed, cammin' SBC:



Stay tuned!

I remember seeing the movie Cobra and wanting a chopped Merc so bad. I have seen pictures of your car before. It looks cool. I can't wait to see the progress.

Thanks it's actually a very very dark blue. Looks black at night and blue when it's sunny...



I need to get all the gaskets for the engine and then Manzo will start to assemble it.

Wow. Awesome build! Far cry from the cars you've had in the past!

What's the plans for the LS swap? Anything fancy?
