My first car was a 1951 Mercury. I paid something like $3,600.00 for it in fall 1951. I bought this car when I was in the US Navy, and most of my Navy years were during the Korean war. The car set in storaged in San Diego while overseas, or I let one of the nicer young ladies that loved Navy men use it for 6 months. I traded the '51 Merc for a '56 Merc in 1956, wishing I had kept it. This last fall while visiting son in Minneapolis, Mn I came across this one for sale. I paid $15.400.00 and hauled it to Kansas. This has been my project the past two months.

I've been removing parts and rebuilding the engine, and transmission, plus the upholstery. I'm planing on repainting it with 6 coats of lacquer this spring.

Sorry I couldn't bring up the picture of your car, but it sounds like Tim Taylor (of Home Improvement) would be proud of you. Heck, he would want to be your best friend!

Good luck on your project.
