1949 Mercury M47 Built From The Ground Up.jpg


This Mercury went through a 2 1/2 year complete nut-bolt restoration after sitting for 40+years. It was one family owned and has a back story as being used before resting in the barn as a moonshine hauler. I used that story and history as the vision for the restoration. Original Mercury Flathead was rebuilt with a few drivability upgrades. T5 five speed with front disc. Everything including hubcaps is original. Reclaimed barn oak was used to restore the bed.
