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:



Okay....



Not bad at all:





I like:



This was a long phase I.

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!

You made all the right changes. Looks great. I've always wanted a 49-51 Merc or Shoebox Ford.

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.

Front end looks badass in black.
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! :bowdown:

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