Now that's a pretty cool conversion right there. I love those 49's anyway.
I would drive the heck out of that. Pretty cool.
Did he stop working on it? It was just getting interesting.
Huh, I assumed the green one was the finished version, but I see it is not. Well, shame he gave up. Unless rat rod was the goal?
Unfinished Rat Rod, you mean.
Did you guys see all 4 pages? Still looks like he's working on it - last post was just a couple days ago.
Yeah, that is one cool build. I especially like his choice of using an early 50's Ford pickup cab for the back; so many of the conversions never look right in that area, but this one looks "factory". I hope he gets it done.
Me too ! I kinda' like this ol' Mercury too.
Dunno where those pictures were taken but those look like New Zealand number plates. Always liked them -- wouldn't mind a 1950 one -- would be the same age as me.
They are . Guy brought it over the pond to put it in the "Eyes On Design" show in Detroit a few years ago.
At first I was thinking I can't believe he is going to cut that nice 2 door up, but just wow, it's looking awesome. As beerbelly points out getting the back if the cab right makes or breaks these conversions and this looks perfect.
The guy should have found a 1940 Buick truck for a parts car. Would have made his job easier.

thread is only a week or so old I do not think he as given up........,
So the Merc would have only been available new in Aussie -- we never had them new here. Imported from Aussie to NZ then shipped to US . Wonder where it is now.
The 40 Buick looks good too .
